Emptiness Survival Kit. Part 2: Shed, Empty, Let Go. Day 15: Kali meditation.

Paradoxically, feeling empty could be a sign that we need to empty more. Perhaps in a mad rush of socially driven acquisition we acquired excessive identities, possessions, thoughts, feelings, relationships, drama which are not what we are or what our soul wants. To liberate ourselves, we need to shed this excess – insecurities, frustrations, anger, fears, worries, addictions, unworthiness. In the Kali meditation, we offer everything that takes us out of the flow of the Universe, that brings our vibration down to Kali, a Hindu goddess, who lives off of our impurities. Sit or lie down comfortably, close your eyes, breathe deeply and slowly, think what you need to shed, empty and follow the above meditation.

    Emptiness, the void, darkness, nothingness, uncertainty, abyss, existential dread, feeling numb or like “something is missing” are all symptoms of what I call the emptiness practice (also known as “the dark night of the soul”). It is a tough practice. This Emptiness Survival Kit is based on my learnings in the last couple of years and is a summary of key quotes, tips and practices that helped me and I hope help you to get through it. I plan to post daily for a sum total of 42 posts. See you on the other side.
