Lakshmi: “The Goddess Of Abundance”
“I choose to feel abundant. Wealth is an inside job.”
Who She Is: “Lakshmi personifies the splendor and affluence that arrives when we align our every action with what the soul desires most for us. Reverence for the Hindu goddess Lakshmi dates back to the 1st millennium B.C.E. She is known as the goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity. Her name is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘laks’ and ‘laksa,’ meaning to know, understand, or to have a goal.
She is the wife of the Hindu god Vishnu and has many festivals that are celebrated in her honor. In the ancient Indic epic the Ramayana, Lakshmi is said to have miraculously sprung from the foam of an ocean of milk churned by the gods.
Lakshmi is often pictured in her iconography holding the lotus. This is symbolic of the fact that great beauty arises from the dark richness of the earth under any circumstances. All that is needed is the auspicious or divine timing for the lotus to come into bloom. Her essence then, is about understanding the goal in life: to realize the abundance of the soul.”
When Your Soul Selects Her Card: “Abundance looks different to each of us. Some people have incalculable material wealth but are bereft of a sense of purpose or a greater vision for their life and so are left feeling lost. While others are considered poor in financial wealth but walk around radiating love and the kind of light that has an inestimable worth. Lakshmi is the auspiciousness that begins to bloom in our life when we align our every action with the work our soul has come here to do.
Lakshmi reminds us of the ultimate goal, which is not making money, but being able to know our true bliss. What makes us feel lit up like a glow stick while we are doing it? What work doesn’t feel like work at all? Lakshmi is a wink to find that vocation, that bliss so that what is within us comes into full bloom through something we can do and show the world.
Lakshmi represents both the gold we can hold in our hands and the gold we can become by doing work that feeds our soul. She is the reminder that true abundance does not come from our bank statement. It comes from a state of mind we enter when we know we are contributing great worth to the world in the effort of becoming more love.”
Soul-Voice Meditation: “When do I feel the most abundant?”
Intention: “I choose to feel abundant. Wealth is an inside job.”*

We often associate abundance with money and finances but it is so much more than that. It is an opening up to receive; an expansion and an alignment with our birthright. It is a feeling of security and love, of balance and equality. Of knowing that there is always enough of everything to go around. Enough to share. Share the prosperity, share the love, share the kindness, share the security, share the knowledge, share the food and water.
Lakshmi reminds us that true abundance is a coming together, it is no one left behind. It is reaching out and accepting what is on offer without second guessing your value or worthiness to receive. It is about stepping out of the lack mentality, away from the victim mentality and into a new story. A story where nothing is lacking, there are no victims and everyone receives equally.
Abundance is alignment with the Highest Energies of Christ Consciousness, Unconditional Love and Divine Light. It is alignment with the Universal energies, the Soul path, the true authentic self. It is a turning towards love and away from fear. A chance to become whole.
And with it comes love and freedom and prosperity. Because when things come into alignment and the struggle is over, it is easy to manifest our desires.
Thank you Lakshmi for guiding me to a state of abundance in every aspect of my life.
