Its taken me 18 years to understand, experience and live my journey until I was finally ready to share it. I saw visions of this book years back but the time to publish it had to come only when I had gone through an inner transformation and connected to my own warrior energy.

CIRCLE OF HEALING
Although numerous treatises have been written in the glory of Kali, not many speak about her essence in the simplicity that it exists. Spiritual experiences must be understood in the psychic realm but within the physical realm; each experience
must be dealt with the same childlike wonder and seen with the eye of naivety.
The journey comes to a pause the day one ceases to wonder what vibrates in the subtle movements of the mind, and likewise what exists in the silence when the movement stops. This inquisitiveness is the essence of knowledge. Its core lies in the centre of a timeless void; the space from where, with each experience, the dots start joining together to form the circle of awakening. With every new revelation, the circle
comes closer to culmination, and depending on our choices, it gradually illuminates the truth of our existence. The journey goes on a timeless loop till the illusion of form is broken and the soul realises that there is no beginning, no end; the liberated energy then merges back to a void of higher dimension. This darkness, this void, is where the empowered energy of Kali vibrates and initiates the process of creation.
Energy, as we know, is neither created nor destroyed. It has neither the feminine nor the masculine form. Just as water takes the shape of its vessel, the energy takes the form it vibrates in. Since Kali is the beginning, she animates within all forms. Kali’s essence, though, is that of the feminine warrior, which reflects that she will raise the psychic state of empowerment with compassion. The feminine form is the nurturer and the healer whose innate nature is to restore the initial destruction of illusion.
The energy of Kali initially awakens the masculine energy of power and aggression within us and concludes with the contradictory nurturing, reasoning and healing feminine energy. For those who need a trigger to break the illusion, she resonates the intensity of masculinity, and for those who need to open perception, she vibrates the feminine energy. This dance of destruction and nurturing goes on endlessly until the form merges in the void. It’s imperative to know that energy resonates in the void too. Sometimes the fleeting vibrations of the higher dimension connect with a distant energy on the physical dimension − in the form of thoughts, intuitions, visions or dreams. Through this book, my ardent quest has been to demystify the myth that the psychic ability belongs only to the spiritually gifted; all souls are spiritual and gifted with
absolute knowledge. We just have to learn to find our own individual circle of awakening. If we peruse carefully, we can see that there are patterns and secret codes within the depths of our soul, which, when illuminated, become our guiding light.
As a young girl, I was always scared of the persona of Kali. I could never quite comprehend the need for a goddess to look so fierce. Though my soul was drawn to her energy, my ignorance about her essence clouded my intuition. The universe
had other plans, and it’s only through her I understood the true nature of my soul. Her visionary messages and her aura have left mind expanding imprints in my consciousness.
The bizarre way that energies of the revered master Swami Vivekananda and many more have opened the secret codes of life for me is overwhelming and magical. This book is, however, not about magic and miracle or mythology and culture. It’s about the energy that I embraced through my spiritual journey and its power. I want women to know the power and love that the energy of Kali radiates. I wish for them to forget
her form and just connect to her energy.
There is a surge in fear and uncertainty in the lives of people, but women, even under the chaotic circumstances, know how to hold on to hope. My aim for this book is to open the path of that small ray of hope and give tools to women for turning that tiny beam of light into a raging fire of wisdom, honour, love and courage. The need of the hour is to show women a way to illuminate the world through their energy, doing so
with an optimum power and by making the right choices.
They need to honour their intuition and their warrior archetype, their Kali.
