This upcoming Full Moon (Sunday October 13th) coincides with Indian observance of Goddess Lakshmi. Lakshmi or Laxmi is a Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity celebrated on the day of full moon in the lunar month Ashwin. Wherever this Goddess comes, she brings luck, prosperity and abundance. But she will not come to homes of those that live in dirt, negligence and constant quarreling with their partner.
Here are some steps to follow in preparation for this Full Moon if you want to attract the sacred energy of Lakshmi into your home and life:
✔️Today, clean your home with love and care
✔️Make sure you always have fresh fruit and flowers in your home
✔️Lakshmi only comes to homes of those who are treating their partners with respect and support. She will not come to those who fight, offend and disrespect their relationships with their significant others
✔️On Sunday, fill your home with aromas of jasmine or rose. Visualize the image of Lakshmi and how she graciously comes into your home bringing luck, prosperity and abundance.
✔️Prepare a beautifully arranged platter of fruit (sweets, coconut, bananas, mangos, figs, grapes, almonds) along with golden decorations, pearls and flowers for her and then share it with the loved ones. You can sing 108 repetitions of mantra for Lakshmi before indulging in the sweets (OM HREEM SHREEM LAKSHMI BHYO NAMAHA), which she really likes and returns your time invested in her worshipping with her gracious presence.
