http://www.sacredhypnogoddess.com/ Coming soon... submit your questions into Dear Kali - your virtual hand-holder on the yogic path of practice and awakening... in the same vein as Dear Abbey, now you have Dear Kali.....
Hi I'm Kali Carmel here to be your virtual hand-holder on the yogic path of practice and awakening. We all get on our mat for many varied and different reasons... major life changes, illness, disappointments, addictions, wanting to look and feel better, realizing we're in some kind of rut, perhaps noticing a downward spiral in life of some flavor... the list goes on... but once we're on the mat, we find that getting into, maintaining, and evolving a yoga practice is like opening a doorway into a wormhole of new, and often messy, daily life experience. We start to find that every day a new layer of personality, ideas, beliefs, and ways of being, are stripped away and transformed so that new, more awake, layers of your deeper and more present Self can be revealed. Sometimes this feels liberating, revitalizing and downright amazing. And other times it feels confusing, discombobulating, disorientating, and just painfully crazy like. Some mornings you wake up just not knowing who you are any more... it's confusing for you and it's confusing for your loved ones also. And as we recycle friendships, careers and lifestyles it can feel like more is being lost than gained... and this is a completely normal part of the awakening path.
I know, because I've pretty much been through it all. In being diagnosed infertile to the birth of my naturally conceived, healthy miracle baby at age 44, I've gone from dissolving not only my sense of self, but also marriages, bank accounts and living environments as well as my health and perceived sanity at times. I've gone from feeling like I'm going through psychotic breakdown to realizing I'm actually having huge spiritual breakthroughs. And the degree of freedom and trust that follows is nothing short of deeply empowering... especially when miracles, both large and small, start happening.
But I was lucky to have many a person to hold my hand, to guide me and support me and to above all, turn my questions back on myself in a way I could address them. And now I would like to do the same for you.
So here I offer you a "Dear Kali Column" - this is your Q&A forum to the Yogic Goddess of Inner Revolution, Transformation and Ultimate Freedom.
In a similar vein as the "Dear Abbey" column, started in the '50's, now you can ask anything you want around how to meet every day challenges with truth, grace, insight and support. No matter how messy you might feel, or look!
My Zen Master saw both a truth and challenge within me when he gave the name of Yogic Goddess, "Kali". But these days having had 20 years of yogic experience, 15 years as a transpersonal hypnotherapist and a lifetime of unraveling my own karmic challenges, I intimately get the twisted path of awakening through yoga. The result is that the wisdom of the Goddess as Divine Feminine Energy flows through my work to be your virtual hand-holder imparting insight and wisdom for your challenges too.
Where "Dear Abbey" gave advice, the energy and wisdom of Kali is more likely to ask questions back and offer processes and practices that will empower you to embody your highest truth and deepest purpose in this lifetime today; not in a religious or wrathful way, as some may perceive Her, but in a heart centered, philosophical, practice oriented way. You truly do have all the resources you need within you, all you need now is a point the right direction and the tools and confidence to use them.
So ask about anything that troubles or confuses you, that causes pain or angst, or that feels dark and unknown. In asking for yourself, you are also asking for your fellow yogis too. I look forward to hearing from you.
Om and love
