Make a red seat by covering a red cloth over a wooden post or small stool. Place an idol or picture of Maa Kali with Mahakali Yantra over that seat. You can make this Yantra by yourself or even get this from market. After that, worship the Goddess using red sandal, flowers and incense sticks. Perform Nyasa and meditate for Maa BHagwati in the following ways -

Dhyan Stuti (Meditation Psalm)

Khadgam Gadeshu Chap Parighaam Soolam Bhusundi Shirah|
Shankam Sanddhateem Karaystinayanaam Sarwaag Bhushavritaam||

Neelaashmadhutimaasya Paada Dshakaam Sewaye Mahakalikaam|
Yaamastautswapito Harao Kamaljo Hantum Madhu Kaytbham||

Tantric people imagine a horrible look of Mahakali as sitting on corpse, wearing a garland of heads, sword, trident, broken earthen utensil in one hand and human head in other with a bloody red tongue out thirsting for more blood, while meditating. For them, the meditation psalm is this:

Shwarudhaam Mahabheemaam Ghordrinshtraam Varpradaam|
Haasya Yuktam Trinetram Ch Kapaal Kartrikaakaraam||

Mukt Keshee Laljihvam Pimbatee Rudhiram Muhuh|
Chaturbahuyutam Deveem Varabhayakaraam Smaret||

After that, meditate again by doing Vyapaka Nyasa using main Mantra and restoring the previous position.

Japa Mantra

Om Kraam Kreem Kroom Kalikayai Namah||


Namo Devye Mahadevaya Shivayai Sasatam Namah|
Namah Prakrityae Bhadraye Nitataam Prantaam Smataam||


Generally, Mantras are chanted in the numbers of lakhs or two lakhs. There is a system of performing the following:

10% part of the Japa should be followed by Havan performed using Ghee. 10th part of the Havan is Tarpan, 10th part of the Tarpan is ablution and 10th part of ablution is treating Brahmins.
