REMOVER OF OBSTACLES
I am very drawn Ganesha & recently got me very own. After reading about Ganesha, i completely know why. Maybe you connect with him too...here's the scoop...
Ganesha, also spelled Ganesa or Ganesh, also known as Ganapati is one of the deities best-known and most widely worshipped in the Hindu pantheon. His image is found throughout India and Nepal. Hindu sects worship him regardless of affiliations. Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains, Buddhists, and beyond India.
Although he is known by many other attributes, Ganesha's elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and more generally as Lord of Beginnings and Lord of Obstacles, patron of arts and sciences, and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is honoured at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and invoked as Patron of Letters during writing sessions. Several texts relate mythological anecdotes associated with his birth and exploits and explain his distinct iconography.

Well, the question is....when are we asking and WHY?
We are programmed to ask when we need but why don't we ask when we don't? Is it because we DON'T need?? I think we all know the answer to that question.
I was reading from a daily guidance book (Daily Guidance from your Angels by Doreen Virtue) i recently bought and this very subject was my first reading of the book and my inspiration for this post. The title of the day was "RELEASE YOUR FEARS".
Daily, we all struggle with our fears. Some of us are are living in constant fear; fear of failure, fear of success, fear of not having enough, fear of dying, the list goes on and on. All fears are rooted in the belief that we are isolated and alone. Are we? What is our instinct in the moment of fear? We ask.
And so, we do just that...ask!
We ask in a moment of fear, we ask in a moment of weakness and negativity, we ask in a moment that can not possibly bring us what we are truly asking for. What we truly need is to release ourselves from fear so we CAN manifest our dreams, desires, thoughts and needs. We are all beings that have the capability to make our dreams come true, we are all powerful creators.
When we are scared we can't possibly create.
Ground yourself. Focus. Be aware. Breathe love & light into your body.
and then....dream all of your bigs dreams!
We can ask all of the time, we can manifest on our brightest days and in our best moments...we just have to remember to ask!
