This beautiful hymn is to Goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of good fortune, wealth, prosperity and generosity. She relieves material strife and poverty and showers blessings of abundance.
Who doesn’t love that?
Material comfort and riches are things we all crave. We dream of beautifying our homes, taking amazing vacations , experiencing the luxurious side of life and many of us dream of having so much that we can share and transform other people’s lives too!
I’ve survived bankruptcy and have lived on the other side of abundance for a long time. I know what it’s like not to have much and to feel like there is no way out but when I look around my home today, on this beautiful day of the Summer Solstice, that time in my life seems like a scene from a Sci-fi movie. Today I have so many of the things that Lakshmi brings:
I have material wealth
I have emotional wealth
I have spiritual wealth
I have physical wealth
I am dreaming of a world without poverty today and my Summer Solstice prayer to Lakshmi is more of this for me and more for everyone else too!
That’s been a theme in my life for about two years now. Everywhere I turn I’ve been meeting strong, attractive, deep, interesting, creative women.
They have come into my life through the doors of my tax practice, online through the study of plant medicine, metaphysics & astrology and most recently through my book.
She found me through my audiobook and a google search. “And I fell in love with your voice,” the attractive Ukrainian woman standing in front of me in need of my tax services said. She was also a self-published author. I know this is going to sound cliche, but I felt like I had met her before. I also knew that she and I would become friends because we just “clicked” in the special way that I’ve been clicking with other special women.
Elena is one of many women I have met just like this over the last few months. I’ve walked into homes of clients and stayed for dinner, volunteered at the Steinbeck Center as a mentor to two young writers and met a soul sister from another life. Heck, it’s even happened to me with my editor who lives in South Africa. It sometimes feels like we are living in the same house because she and I connect via our daily routines as mothers, sisters, and colleagues and intuitively feel one another’s moods. It’s just incredible.
When my daughter, Caroline was getting ready to go off to college, I found myself sinking into a pit of separation anxiety and it affected me physically. I wrote about this in my book, Many Gifts in detail because I wanted to share this with as many women as possible. The Divine Feminine energy that links us all was in its natural state of flow, presenting with changes to both our menstrual cycles and it scared me! It scared me because no one really talked about it. Once I began to open up and let the light into this area of our world, I think that’s when I was able to hop back on the train that is always riding to its destination: HARMONY. The perfect state where all things divine and feminine blossom.
My old wounds around women all started coming to the surface for air:
Sister wounds (I’m a twin)
Friendship wounds (oh, I’ve got lots!)
I kept on diving into my plant medicine, meditation, my work, journaling and making love to keep my vibration as high as possible while I allowed the changes in my life and my body to happen. They were going to happen anyway!
I think that’s when this tribe of women soldiers started coming into my field. My channel was set to the right dial for them.
The other thing that happened – and I only just realized this while writing this blog – is that the women who were not set to the right channel fell out of my world. There was simply no vibrational match for us anymore. Now if THIS is not the Law of Attraction that all the great books talk about, then I do not know what is.
Women rock. This post is to salute them and to salute me because I could not be at this point if I did not have the common sense to recognize that this LOVE that I have for them is really all about the LOVE that I finally have for ME!
Whitney said it best: I’m every woman. It’s all in me.
