October Sacred Essence

Hello dear women friends,

This month, with the Goddess conference looming, Jen has handed yours truly the Sacred Essence reigns. Here’s what happened since that momentous decision was taken…

I was recalling thoughts of holding a workshop on Abundance after being with some very driven, career-focused women last week. I then thought to myself, hmmm I wonder if that might be a good theme for our circle! I could use a little extra wealth, health and happiness this coming Summer as much as the next girl! At the same time, I remembered the fact that with Jen being in the creative flow of Goddess energy we were going to do a night with the Goddesses. Then She came to me….

This is Lakshmi! The gorgeous Hindu goddess of abundance.
And as I researched further, I discovered THIS is her month, in fact this Monday night is the eve of HER festival!
Here is some more about her…

Goddess Lakshmi means Good Luck to Hindus. The word 'Lakshmi' is derived from the Sanskrit word "Laksya", meaning 'aim' or 'goal', and she is the goddess of wealth and prosperity, both material and spiritual.

Lakshmi is the household goddess of most Hindu families, and a favourite of women. Although she is worshipped daily, the festive month of October is Lakshmi's special month. Lakshmi Puja is celebrated on the full moon night of Kojagari Purnima (this coming Tuesday 11/10).

And this from Doreen Virtue…

“Lakshmi is a beautiful and benevolent Hindu goddess who brings abundance to those who call upon her. Lakshmi’s connection to lotus flowers, elephants, and water represents her absolute faith in fertility and abundance available to everyone. She’s happy to bring supply to you, whether that means money, time, knowledge, or opportunity. Lakshmi works with Ganesh, the elephant headed deity who’s known as the “overcomer of obstacles”. Together, they’re an unstoppable team that works to help you release fear and accept abundance.”

So beautifully and so perfectly then, this month’s LUCKY circle will be titled:
Awakening Our Golden Seams of Abundance!

Could you do with a little extra good fortune in your life?
