We are going to focus on Goddess Lakshmi, who brings us all sorts of well-being – beauty, wealth, and a great mind.
To do this we construct a puja, or altar in your house. The puja can have statues of Lakshmi and Ganesh, candles crystals and a bowl and you might also use a beautiful puja cloth. You can have a little box in which you keep a lot of gold dollars that you can use in the ceremony.
Every night before sleeping, come to the puja and thank Ganesh and Lakshmi for protection and well-being. Then use the following statement:
“Thank you Mahalakshmi for this time, this space, these people and these objects. Thank you for all you have given me and continue to give me.
I bring this offering to you out of love and gratitude for you and your gifts.”
Take two or three gold coins out of your box and hold them in your cupped hands. Rotate your hands slowly three times saying
Then place the coins in the bowl. Each month write a check to the organization that you feel most represents Lakshmi to you.
You can follow this with three recitations of the Lakshmi Gayatri Mantra
"Om Shree Mahalakshmyai Cha Vidmahe Patnyai Cha Dheemahi Tanno Lakshmi Prachodayat"
This is how to focus on that aspect of our inner Being called wealth.
This is an exceptionally nourishing practice that ushers us into the receptive condition, opening the crown chakra and Mo center (above the head). Harnessing devotion and visualization, it invites us to receive the refuge of non-conceptual blessings, whether we understand this to emerge from enlightened beings, celestial forces (bodhisattvas or angels), or light itself.
