Ganesha, Clear the Way
Ganesha, Clear the Way
Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha
The practice of Yoga is a life-long journey of growth and evolution that’s filled with challenges, pitfalls, distractions, and excuses that prevent us from keeping on the path.
Even though we truly want to commit to our personal practice, and see ourselves make inner progress, sometimes out of nowhere, we’ll hit a roadblock or a challenge that stops us in our tracks. We’ve all been there.
Sometimes the obstacles we encounter are outside of ourselves. More often we find that actually the main source of challenge and resistance is within ourselves. This is why it’s called a Practice. Some days we find the flow, and other days we seem paralysed by challenge.
Simply becoming aware of the challenges is one of the best ways to begin overcoming them.
Typically, the Yogis invoke the power of Ganesha, the remover and placer of obstacles and the Lord of New Beginnings anytime, especially at the beginning of any journey, to help clear the way of any obstacles that prevents our lives from flowing free.
Take a few moments NOW.
Close your Eyes.
Repeat the mantra – Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha – 9 x.
When we sing or chant a mantra, we are singing not to any God or power outside of ourselves, but rather to the qualities and vibrations within ourselves.
After I started practice this mantra for a few days, I noticed some incredible shifts in my life…suddenly so much more flow. But don’t take my word for it.
I invite you to try adding this mantra to your daily practice and simply NOTICE is there are any life shifts.
We’ve created a special playlist for you. While you listen, feel free to just be or to let it inspire your movement or singing practice.
