Do you feel stressed out about money? The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented economic downturn that has impacted many of us. The silver lining here, whether we want to admit it or not, is that any challenge is an opportunity to exercise neutrality and expand our connection to the Goddess within.
According to the Vedas, the most ancient Hindu scripture, femininity is personified by three main goddesses: Lakshmi, Saraswati and Parvati. These goddesses must be equally embodied and nurtured in every woman, helping her to awaken the divine feminine within. This triad of eminent goddesses, called in Hinduism Tridevi, personifies creation, preservation and destruction respectively.
We cannot attract abundance unless we feel worthy!
These three goddesses represent three main cycles: birth, life, death & rebirth. When we experience financial challenges we must call upon Goddess Lakshmi. Goddess Lakshmi governs all things beautiful, joyful, prosperous, and luxurious. She helps us to feel beautiful, worthy and loved. She helps us to connect to BEING rather than doing. We cannot attract abundance unless we feel worthy!
Lakshmi is often portrayed seated on a lotus flower, and elephants by her sides are pouring milk over her. She is the goddess of true self-care and self-love — an ultimate representation of femininity and beauty.
Goddess Lakshmi can help you realize your full potential. She is the one who helps those who pray to her to walk with ease in the world. To live effortlessly, and to be able to give and receive without a lot of drama and agenda.
When Lakshmi is in your life, your finances may fluctuate with the economy, but you always seem to have faith that the situation will improve. Lakshmi helps you to be content, and to know internally that the universe has your back. Lakshmi helps you to recognize what’s going well in your life, so you can operate from a place of abundance rather than scarcity.
Goddess Lakshmi exists as the earth, as the waters, as the fire, as the wind, as the atmosphere. She causes the five elements to hold together in harmony. She is in us as little girls, as young women and as elders. She awaits you to call upon her. Will you?
So how can you start attracting abundance?
Step I – Call upon the Goddess Lakshmi.
Goddess Lakshmi before me. Goddess Lakshmi behind me. Goddess Lakshmi at my left. Goddess Lakshmi at my right. Goddess Lakshmi above me. Goddess Lakshmi beneath me. Goddess Lakshmi wherever I go. Goddess Lakshmi whenever I need * Adapted from Dr. Joseph Michael Levry, Prayer of Love Peace and Light
Step II – Use a Lakshmi mantra for abundance: Om Shrim Harim Klim Mahalakshmi Namaha with the following hand posture: heels of the palms together with fingers straight and slightly separated.
Ask yourself – “Are my actions guided by the highest good for all? Am I embracing myself as an individual expression of God, yet part of the integrative whole of what is?” The more you think of others, the faster the universe will support you.
Step III – Create your own money mantra: “Money loves me and I love money. Money cannot stay away from me. All the money I circulate multiplies to me in a continuous cycle of increase. And so it is.”
