As Autumn approaches (I am so excited!) I find myself turning more within myself, delving into my spirituality and allowing myself to get in touch with higher energies, you know, Gods and Goddesses! These energies find their ways into our lives when we need them.
I have had amazing experiences with many different deities. Ganesh usually finds his way into my life when I’m letting myself be walled in by boundaries that are usually of my own making. I convince myself that there’s something stopping me from moving forward when most of the time that boundary is just in my head.
Today I pulled this card and the message was spot on.
Ganesha from the Gaia Oracle.
Ganesha is a Hindu God who is the remover of obstacles. One of my favorite mantras to recite with my prayer beads is Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha (Om Guhm Guh-nuh-puh-tuh-yea Nah-mah-hah) which means Om and salutations to Ganapati – another name for Ganesha.
Chanting these words is calling upon Ganesha. It’s an invitation for the vibrations of those words to thump, thump, thump, and start shaking up those mental boundaries. I always imagine those words as having so much power in such a quiet way like they’re a rumbling earthquake.
If you’re feeling blocked or needing to overcome obstacles, try chanting Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha (108 times is traditional). Not only will it completely zen and bliss you out, but it puts that obstacle-breaking energy into your life. Listen to Deva Premal if you don’t feel comfortable chanting it yourself.
This card is an omen for good fortune! Whatever has been blocking your path and keeping you from going forward, now is the time to clear it away and move on.
Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha
Stop allowing things to hold you back.
Whatever was holding you back, see it as a blessing in disguise, something that made you stronger in the process of moving past it. Everything happens for a reason, turn it into something worthwhile. The timing is right to start moving forward so take that leap of faith, do that thing that you’ve been stopped from doing and know that it is time.
It is time to remove obstacles from your life.
You are protected through this process. Call upon Ganesha for guidance. If you having trouble getting past something or dealing with an obstacle in your life, spend time in meditation. Allow yourself to be open and receptive to the answers that are coming your way.
