I. The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi: The Divine Feminine, The Goddess Laxmi
Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and fortune, both spiritually and materially. In reality, however, most people use her for material wealth in this world. That is okay, so long as we are on this earth, it is not a bad thing to live in prosperity. It is not noble to live in lack nor is it nobler to be a greedy hoarder of wealth. It’s all about harmony.
The Goddess Lakshmi brings harmony to our prosperity. Often we say we seek balance in our lives, but in reality, we seek harmony. Have you ever seen a balanced scale? It is static and unmoving. Whereas harmony is a flowing interaction between states.
The goddess Lakshmi bestows Harmony in our lives, and that helps us attract prosperity and wealth in all ways.
She is often depicted with four arms. The four arms represent the four directions. This symbolizes the fact that her energy is everywhere.
They also stand for the four purposes of human life.
- Ultimate liberation from the reincarnation cycle of death and rebirth.
Her red clothing symbolizes action. However, unlike Druga’s (Another powerful Hindu goddess) dress, Lakshmi has a golden lining on her dress which symbolizes prosperity and wealth.
The Goddess Lakshmi is the one to invoke when you are seeking true and deep happiness in your life. She bestows beauty as well. If you require abundance in all areas of your life Lakshmi can help. But do realize that if the request is made in the spirit of greed, Lakshmi will not respond.
The opposite might occur, and what you do have will be taken away from you. It is for this reason that when calling on Lakshmi for abundance your intention should be pure. The goddess Lakshmi is tender and compassionate, and therefore a person much approach her with a tender and compassionate heart.
