Kali’s aura and theme resonates with the concepts of rebirth, cycles,
joy, courage, hope, cleansing and change. She is symbolically
represented by flowers, dance, iron, swords, peacock feathers and honey.
Kali, a Hindu Goddess whose name means ‘time’, She is the embodiment of
natural forces that either build or destroy. She is destructive of
ignorance, dispelling negativity, however, She reminds us that good
really can come of bad situations. Where there is sorrow, She dances to
bring joy. Where there is fear, She dances propagating courage.
Goddess Kali is equated with the eternal night, is the transcendent
power of time, and is the consort of the god Shiva. It is said that its
Shiva who destroys the world, and Kali is the power or energy with which
Shiva acts. Therefore, Kali is Shiva’s Shakti, without which Shiva
could not act.
