Being pushed beyond one's comfort zone can be both an exhilarating yet stressful experience. Having stability in life is one thing, but when it becomes stagnate, changes are quite welcoming. Besides calling upon archangels and ascended masters such as Jesus for assistance, recently, I've been pulling the 'Kali' card from Doreen Virtue's Goddess Guidance oracle card deck.
Kali is the Hindu goddess of endings, change and transformation. In essence, she supplies the courage and determination to those who are ready to weed out any old patterns which have passed their sell-by date and to replace the void with fresh seeds for new beginnings.
Astrologically, Uranus (the planet of change and awakening) is transiting my 8th house of endings and transformation so this aptly coincides with Kali's message.
