We honor the goddess Lakshmi – the Hindu goddess of abundance, prosperity, beauty, grace, and generosity – at November’s full moon. Lakshmi is esteemed as the personification of the beauty and bounty of Mother Earth. She is held in high regard in the Hindu tradition, where she heralds good luck and fortune. Almost all followers in Hinduism revere Lakshmi in some way, and she is found far and wide beyond the reaches of Hindu practice as well. Families worship her for the well-being and prosperity she brings to the family and the home. She is a Divine Mother goddess, and so is accordingly addressed as mata (mother) rather than just devi (goddess) as many other Hindu deities are.
How we honor the goddess Lakshmi
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, first Saraswati must be invoked. 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 companion Ganesha Ritual Kit for you here, so that you can work with them together.
These tools honor Lakshmi’s divine gifts of beauty, fertility, grace, good luck, and abundance. My Lakshmi kit first contains a hand-rolled beeswax candle in gold and fuschia – the color of Lakshmi. Each candle contains chip stones, and is anointed with my brand new Wealth perfume. It comes adorned with original SG artwork, and a blessing you can read aloud to invoke Lakshmi.
Then you will receive a bottle of my brand new Wealth perfume, not available outside this set. With notes of black spruce, patchouli, and orange, this is a divine blend that embodies beauty and grace, while calling in abundance, power, and fertile success.
You will also receive a tin containing herbs chosen to align with Lakshmi’s energy: cinquefoil, holy basil (tulsi), and patchouli. If you want to know why these herbs were chosen to honor the goddess Lakshmi, 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.
Lakshmi’s stones are opalized citrine and pyrite. Opalized citrine means that when the stone formed, there was a higher concentration of water mixed in with the mineral. If you need abundance in your life, this is your stone. Citrine draws money like a magnet. Citrine is a powerful solar plexus stone, so it can also be used to help you find your power and use your abilities to unlock your soul potential. Pyrite is the glittering stone of possibility and potential. It reminds you of your deep inner worth, while enkindling your self-esteem and confidence. This strong Earth stone resonates with the fire element – symbolizing action, vitality, and will.
