This is a mantra that came to me from the Sivananda Kirtan.
Kirtan is a Sankskirt word that can be translated many different ways, but generally means narrating, praise, or reciting.
I began experimenting with this mantra in 20 minute meditation sessions. Twenty minutes for me is the ideal length of time to meditate on a mantra. It's long enough that I have no choice but to let go, because at some point I always lose track of the feeling of time and surrender to the fact that I have no idea how long I have left. It's also long enough that my mind clears and I free fall into the energy of the words.
And the words in this meditation are truly powerful. I would feel waves of energy come into me, things release, and often felt like I was falling deep inside of myself. I also felt as if the chant was truly calling in these powerful figures, particularly Kali Ma, right into the room with me.
Kali Ma is often known as the Goddess of destruction.
She is a Goddess that is swift and efficient in her answer to your prayers. If something needs breaking apart, destroying, or clearing in order to make way for the new, she is the Goddess to call on, and she will respond without hesitation. By chanting her name you will call in her powerful energy to help break up old patterns, feelings you're done with, events you're done with, and so on. She can even break apart your current reality so that you can build an entirely new one. She can also help break apart an unbalanced grip on what you perceive to be the only truth in life, allowing in more room for the magic and mystery of life that can miraculously shift everything.
