Diwali is the time of calling up and lightening our lives with lots of abundance. Abundance of happiness, peace, love, wisdom, knowledge, and on the physical level all energies of money, successful career, good relationships, proper health and things related to them.
So the best thing is to connect to divine through a simple yet powerful meditation. In India the day is celebrated by worshipping Goddess Laxmi. Many believe that Goddess Laxmi, the Goddess of wealth will bestow divine abundance in their life if they worship her on this auspicious day.
Anyway new moon is a time of manifesting and thus, meditating on Goddess Laxmi for manifestations of desires becomes pivotal.
There are certain rituals that individuals do at new moon to harness the energies but since this new moon is on diwali so we can bring in a lot of prosperity with a simple yet powerful meditation with Laxmi Gayatri Mantra.
To start with we first need to have a sheet ready with our written desires. But before that we must centre and ground our self. After centring and grounding, give some thoughts to the desires that you have. Now write down your wishes priority wise on the sheet.
While you write your desires, let them all be in the present tense; that is write as if you have got the desires already. Don’t use a black pen to write.
Now, choose a space at your home where you won’t be disturbed till the meditation is over. Burn some incense, if it’s lavender or sandalwood then its better. Now, use sage to clear up the space. Put your write up for manifestation inside a bowl. Keep it in front of you and light a candle. Use red or green candle, but if you don’t have it then go for a white candle.
If you can play OM chant then good, otherwise play any meditation music. Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Concentrate on your breathing. Feel each inhalation and exhalation. While focussing on your breath move your concentration towards your heart chakra. Feel how your heart chakra is responding to your breathing.
Visualize Goddess Laxmi at your heart chakra. Whatever you attach Goddess Laxmi with, you can visualize that. Many just like the idol, many associate paddy, gold coins with Goddess Laxmi, so you can also do that. And also, if you associate anything with abundance then that can also be visualized.
If you are new to visualization then just know that SHE is at your heart chakra. Pay reverence to her and show gratitude for giving you all abundances, filling you and nourishing you till now.
Sit with the knowing that with your gratitude she is showering you with blessings. Now chant the Gayatri Laxmi Manta for 108 times. The mantra is given below.
Om Mahadevyai Cha Vidmahe Vishnu-patnyai Cha Dhimahi Tanno Lakshmi Prachodayat
The meaning of this beautiful mantra is: “Let me meditate on the greatest goddess, Who is the wife of Lord Vishnu, Give me higher intellect, And let Goddess Lakshmi illuminate my mind”
Gayatri Mantra is one of the strongest mantra in this Universe after “AUM”. And intermingling the Laxmi mantra with Gayatri mantra increases the potency of the same.
After chanting it, sit peacefully and keep you focus on your heart chakra where Goddess Laxmi is. When you feel like, slowly open your eyes. Now, we will bless our manifestation write up. Visualize or just imagine/know that sparkling white light is coming out of your heart chakra and it’s entering the write up. This blessing is being send by Goddess Laxmi seated at your heart centre. So bless your desires till the time you feel right.
When the blessing is over, thank Goddess Laxmi for bringing everything that you have desired. Rub your palms together and take the write up to a stream or water body where the water is flowing. The write up has to be given to the water, so as to let it flow.
While wafting it away in a flowing water body one needs to think that the manifestations are being sent to Goddess Laxmi so that She can take care of the same. This ritual of flowing away of the write up can be done the other day too, till the next two days; and has to be completed within this time frame. Also, the write up has to be kept all by oneself and nobody else should read it.
So friends move ahead in manifesting your desires this diwali. May all of you be blessed with lots of love, happiness, illumination, peace and manifestations this year.
Love and light to all…………………..
