Ganesha – the elephant headed god accompanies our work with Lakshmi during November’s full moon. Oh, Ganesha! God of success and great remover of obstacles. You ease our path and make the way clear for us. Ganesha embodies benevolence and empowers us to proceed on our soul path, so that we might fulfill our Highest Calling. Ganesha brings the Divine Masculine presence of beauty and appreciation for the bounty that surrounds us. And the trishul, a powerful trident, is a Hindu-Buddhist religious symbol that represents various trinities. For example, past, present, and future; creation, maintenance, and destruction; or ida, pingala, and shushmana (three energy centers within the body).
We honor the goddess Lakshmi – the Hindu goddess of abundance, prosperity, beauty, grace, and generosity – at November’s full moon. As a companion to my Lakshmi Kit, I’ve created a Ganesha Full Moon Ritual Kit, as well. Younger sister to Saraswati – the Hindu goddess of wisdom – it is told that Lakshmi follows Saraswati wherever she goes. Thus most devotees believe that you cannot call in one without the other, and that for Lakshmi to bring her blessings, Saraswati must be invoked first. It is also believed that, to keep the abundant and wise energies of the sisters around, wise, discerned action and clarity is needed from the great remover of obstacles – Ganesha. Thus these three deities are often exalted and invoked as a Trinity whose energies work together to bring success, fulfillment, abundance, wisdom, and a clear path forward for you to take action.
To fulfill the deep connection between these three deities, I’ve created a Lakshmi Ritual Kit for you here, so that you can work with them together.
How we honor Ganesha
My Ganesha kit first contains a hand-rolled beeswax candle in two shades of green – the color of prosperity. Each candle contains chip stones, and is anointed with my brand new Flow perfume. It comes adorned with original SG artwork, and a blessing you can read aloud to invoke Ganesha.
Then you will receive a bottle of my brand new Success perfume, not available outside this set. This is a potent blend that embodies clarity and action, while calling in wisdom, prosperity, and success. With notes of rosemary, bay laurel, and cardamom this blend will guide you forward to your destiny.
You will also receive a tin containing herbs chosen to align with Ganesha’s energy: Durva grass seed herbs, agrimony, frankincense, and hibiscus. If you want to know why these herbs were chosen to honor Ganesha, join my Magical Sabbatical online class! We dedicate an hour each month to the herbs, stones, and oils of the goddess for that month and together, deepen our knowledge about gemstones and herbal medicine.
Ganesha’s stones are fluorite and vanadinite. If you are seeking to align your natural talents and gifts with the desires of your heart, or are searching for your purpose in this world, fluorite is the stone for you. Purple fluorite resonates with the Third Eye Chakra and raises psychic ability, while green fluorite helps you channel heightened intuition and creativity. Vanadinite is a form of orange apatite, a Sacral Chakra stone that helps overcome procrastination. It stimulates your mind and provides the creativity and energy needed to complete your tasks.
This listing is for one (1) Ganesha Full Moon companion kit as described above.
May these tools invoke the obstacle removal and empowerment of Ganesha.
