Ganesha: Remover of Obstacles
When I was in my mid-20s I went into a gift shop full of eastern Indian things and was intuitively pulled towards the greeting cards. This card (pictured) of Ganesha caught my eye. I had a special feeling in my heart, a flicker of recognition that was unexplainable (take note of these feelings!).
I bought the card and displayed it on my bookshelf, not knowing anything about him. I had been attending yoga classes for a few years, but we had not learned about the Indian gods. About a year or so later I was working at a new magazine job and chatted with a workmate, a Hare Krishna devotee. She told me the elephant god was the remover of obstacles on the spiritual path.
I began calling on Ganesha to remove obstacles for me. Then, on my 30th birthday my parents gave me a Ganesha statue for my garden. They didn’t know of my fascination with this god, in fact I doubt they knew it was Ganesha but just a nice elephant statue.
When I look back at my life, I know he was with me in spirit, a part of the team that has guided me along my path. Over the past few years I began feeling his presence and now when he’s with me I see a picture of an elephant in my third eye. For example, recently I asked my guides to remove baggage from my previous career in magazines and Ganesha appeared. A week later I asked to release outdated programming and he came again.
Having this kind of support is invaluable – I feel guided, protected and loved by my spirit team. I suggest that you learn about the ascended masters and what they specialise in, then call on them for help. They are here to assist us and are just waiting for you to ask.
