Autumn is the season for inner alchemy – our soul’s journey towards integration and wholeness. This search for the gold inside of ourselves requires us to travel to the deep dark places to find and integrate our shadow side. Throughout history the end of October and beginning of November was seen as a time when physical and supernatural worlds were closest and magical things could happen, and many different cultures have festivals at this time of year honoring and praying for the dead.
Our Tourmalated Quartz and Bone Mala will be the most powerful mala to invoke the power of the alchemist and to bring the shadow into conscious awareness. These carved skull beads are reminiscent of the necklace of skulls that the Goddess Kali wears symbolizing liberation, knowledge and wisdom. Kali is known as a fierce destroyer of evil and the ego, but is also considered a compassionate mother and great protector. She is considered the mother of all mantras.
The best mantra to expose and transform our shadow side is:
Om Sri Maha Kalikayai Namah
Translation: Oh great mother of protection and destruction, I bow to you. May you bless me with liberation, knowledge and wisdom, and remove all evil from my path.
