Ganesh is my favoritie Deity. Actually I should say, He's "first among equals" among the various Deities I consciously relate to. (I say "consciously" because I sometimes suspect others than those I am aware of have their influences and/or ways with my life.) I've been calling on Him even more than usual as I am going through this huge uprooting to move cross country to California.
My prayer, especially now given that I have actual material objects in my way (like an old huge couch to somehow get out of my living room without taking it out over the terrace the way it came in 23 years ago), is for Him to graciously remove all obstacles from my path. (One of His titles is "Remover of Obstacles.) I am willing to do, and am doing all the necessary work. I just really need His help, as well. It would be very helpful, too, if He continued to bless this new enterprise, this new life I'm heading toward. (Ganesh is often invoked at the start of new enterprises to ensure their success.)
As I sort, throw out, prepare for a house give-way and sale, type gazillions of emails to my out-of-town landlord (helping with the apartment repair list and obtaining a new tenant), begin to actually pack stuff in cartons (that I first have to put together) etc., etc. I do so wish I, too, had four arms. But I am more than grateful that Ganesh does. And that I continue to feel His loving presence along this tumultuous but welcome path of change.
By the way, be sure to check out the link to The Animals Divine Tarot (under the image above). It's an absolutely wonderful Tarot deck.
