Goddess Lakshmi (pronounced LOCK-shmee) is known as the Hindu Goddess of Abundance and Wisdom. Her connection to the lotus flowers, elephants, and water represents her absolute faith in the fertility and abundance available to everyone. Lakshmi works with Ganesh, the elephant-headed deity, known as the “overcomer of obstacles.” United together, they are an unstoppable team to help you release fear and accept abundance in your life.
Lakshmi manifested herself in the form of art and knowledge. She is a lover of books and of the wisdom to be found in them and is happy to bring you a supply of knowledge and opportunity She is known to have taught her followers to be truthful, philanthropic and sincere. Amy Zerner & Monte Farber’s book, Goddess, Guide Me, give us the following:
“Charge up” a glass of water with energy by placing a small, clean amethyst crystal in it and leaving the glass on a window sill in the moonlight (if possible) overnight. In the morning, remove the crystal and face the sunlight while drinking the water which has absorbed LAKSHMI’s wisdom. Now close your eyes and imagine a beautiful lotus opening up; from a bud to a mature open flower. See it unfolding in the center of your forehead between your eyes, the place where the mystical third eye is found. Recite the following words nine times:
Unveil my eye and let me see.
Reveal what has eluded me.
Let freedom, faith and honesty
Take me far on land and sea.
Whenever you need to rise above your situation or gain perspective, imagine the lotus blooming as you see your third eye opening as well. Be open to the answers you will receive.
