Abundance Rituals with Laxmi Goddess of Abundance

✨Money Monday ⠀

Laxmi the Hindu goddess of abundance

Laxmi the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity & abundance. ⠀

When it comes to money & abundance I like to use omens, lucky charms, mantras & ideas from different modalities. It makes it fun & why not. Take what you like – it’s nice to create rituals around things in a way that feels abundant & enjoyable to you. ⠀

I found these on a list on ‘How to be blessed by Goddess Lakshmi’⠀

💰 Salt ritual ⠀
Mix some raw salt in water & cleanse your home with the water – sprinkling it around or flicking it lightly out of a glass. It invites in abundance. It also removes all the negative energy from your house and gives you peace.⠀
💰Clean your home⠀
On the day of the new moon remove all the unnecessary items from your house, clean thoroughly. You can also sage your house, light incense or diffuse some wild orange oil ( the oil of abundance). Bringing you peace & prosperity.⠀
💰Respecting Women⠀
Respect women who come to your home or live in your home. Respecting women in general is good all round. Celebrating women, honouring them & sisterhood. ⠀
💰 Prevent Negative Energy⠀
After you’ve had visitors staying or people over, cleanse the energy of your home. Can be done with the salt ritual or saging or using an essential oil that cleanses energy. Removing the negative energy in order to get peace & prosperity.⠀
💰 Keep Salt covered ⠀
Never keep your salt jar open, in order to get wealth and prosperity. ( we have an open salt jar 😱)⠀ 💰Oiling the doors ⠀
Put oil on your door hinges and windows in order to prevent any sound – due to dryness. Such sound attracts huge negative energy and disturbs the prosperity of your house.⠀
💰Donate⠀
Donate to charities & worthy causes. Share your abundance it’s good karma & what you spend comes back multiplied.⠀
💰Plant Basil⠀
Grow a Holy basil (Tulsi) plant in an open place. It gives positive vibes, good luck, peace, prosperity, health, wealth and money⠀

I’ve got this one of Laxmi on my ‘altar’ – the place where I have crystals, affirmation cards, my diffuser & other lucky charms. My altar is also set up in the wealth & prosperity corner of the lounge – coming into the room it’s the far left corner. Far left corner of the whole house also. If you are renting or living with others you can focus on the far left corner of your own space. You can also do the far left corner of each room as well as the far left corner of your home.

Money Beliefs

If you have read this and are thinking that this is so materialistic, greedy, ‘ it’s not all about money’, ‘I don’t need money’, evil people have money… the list goes on.

You may have some money beliefs that you have picked up throughout your years. We can often absorb these beliefs from our parents. You need to ask yourself is this something you really believe or want to believe anymore. If these are beliefs/blocks that you want to work on I recommend tapping/EFT to work on these negative blocks and replace them with positive, abundant mindset money beliefs. Here is my Tapping video playlist which mainly features Brad Yates but some Gala Darling. Have a scroll through it to find the Money/Abundance videos & give it a go.

You are worthy

We all deserve to live in abundance and have all that we desire. You are worthy of it all. If you are a good-hearted person then we need more people like you with money – you are able to make a difference in the world through the way you choose to spend your money.

💗You can help charities and causes that are working to create a fair, sustainable, clean, green, healthy, safe world for us and other people.

💗You can buy products that are fairly made and support local, small businesses and sustainable companies.

💗 You can use your money to start a business that solves an environmental problem.

💗You can build schools, water wells, support orphanages, educate people on sustainable living, give money to those in developing countries to start their own enterprises.

I want all the ‘good’ people to have the money. [Click to tweet]

By good I mean – the environmentalists, the planet carers & savers, the humanitarians who work to help those who live in poor & unsafe conditions, the entrepreneurs helping people live there best lives, the heart-centered folk who care about fair trade, humanity, and this amazing planet we call home.

Money love & abundance.

Happy Monday ✨

Fragrance.. avoid it!

 

Choose personal care products whose list of ingredients doesn’t include the word fragrance as it is generally synthetic.  You’ll protect your hormonal system and that of your offspring by side stepping fragrances.  You reduce exposure to phthalates – a family of hormone disrupting chemicals found in all of our bodies but at their highest levels in children and in women of child-bearing age.

Phthalates are commonly used to make perfumes last longer and keep nail polish from flaking.  The chemicals cross the umbilical cord from mother to fetus and exposures are thought to be most problematic in the eighth – fifteenth week of pregnancy when the fetus begins to develop as either male or female.

Fragrance effects the planet too

Developmental changes in wildlife first alerted scientists to the hormone disrupting properties of chemicals in everyday products that found their way into their environment.  Alligators downstream from sewage plants were being born with deformities, panthers were suffering from abnormalities.

In lab tests phthalates in synthetic fragrances have found to alter sexual development and cause cancer in lab animals.

10 wellbeing tips from an Ayurvedic lifestyle

 

“Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. ” – chopra.com

Here are some rituals followed by many who live an Ayurvedic lifestyle. These may inspire you in your own daily practices.

Daily routine

+ The ideal time for waking is before sunrise. Start your day with prayer and meditation, focus on auspicious objects for a pleasant successful day. Take time to plan your actions.

+ Empty your bowels and bladder immediately after to develop regular bowel habits. This helps evacuate any metabolic wastes accumulated overnight.  Drinking tepid water when you first wake up  can encourage regularity.

+ Nourish your body with well-balanced, nutritious and fresh foods.

+ Try to sleep 6 to 8 hours every night.

+ Never withhold natural urges – thirst, hunger, urination, sleep, sneezing, dont induce them either.

4 keys to enjoying wellness

image

1 Eat real food

Eating good quality whole food like fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains and meats every three or four hours throughout the day will have you eating a lot closer to your caveman ancestors.  This will help to stabilise blood sugar and metabolism so you are not living with energy highs and lows and needing caffeine hits throughout the day to keep you going.

2. Take any opportunity to exercise

Park a couple of blocks further away from work so you have a nice walk to start and finish your day.  Eat lunch somewhere different each day so you can explore your environment on foot. Get active with the family in the evenings and weekends.

3. Spend quality time with family and friends

Socializing with family and friends should be a happy time for you and therefore a great way to let go of some of the work stress from the day.  Laughter has proven health benefits and lifts the spirit.

4. Take time to rest, relax and sleep

Elite athletes know the importance of rest and recovery to strengthen and grow. Give yourself some quiet time at the end of the day to help tell your body that the day is over and it is time to relax and recover.  A great way to do this is to do some gentle stretching exercises before bed. Do this and you will sleep better and wake feeling energized
