Morning Meditations

Hi friends. I will be sitting in meditation in the mornings, and if you’d like to join me (no matter where you are), please do!

I’ll post the mantra I’m working on on my Instagram @thisintuitivelife, and we can sit as a collective. I’ll be sitting at about 7:50AM Pacific daily.

Right now I am working with Edward Vilga’s mantra to Lakshmi/Ganesh to break through abundance challenges:

OM
GUM (seed syllable for Ganesh)
SHRIM (seed syllable for Lakshmi)
MAHA (“great”)
LAKSHMIYEI (endearing form of “Lakshmi”)
SWAHA (“We salute you”)

There’s something very interesting thing about this particular chant.

It has been said that chanting to Lakshmi — the goddess of wealth and prosperity — is more effective when you include “Gum,” the seed syllable for Ganesh.  So Chanting “Om Gum Shrim Maha Lakshmiyei Swaha” is more powerful than just “Om Shrim Maha Lakshmiyei Swaha.”

Ganesh is the elephant-headed god who is the remover of obstacles.   People often forget that he also places obstacles in our path like a cosmic speedbump.

There’s a sense that Ganesh’s obstacles are increasing the abundance, that his inclusion of contrast and challenge creates even more abundance.

I’m exploring this and a binaural beats soundtrack to change up some of my old limited ways of thinking about money.

You don’t have to do this particular mantra, if it doesn’t feel right to you. You can just sit and breathe.  When we come together, we can make miracles for the collective.
