Lord Ganesha represents protection and clearing of obstacles along with guidance for next steps.
It seems that everything we read or see in media is designed to scare us, put us down, and make us feel wrong. It is essential that we learn to protect our energy from the wave upon wave of negativity we are exposed to.
The following is a quick guided meditation that reminds us that we don't have to let the waves drag us under.
Do not perform this meditation while driving or performing any activity that requires your complete attention.
This meditation is not intended to protect you from physical harm. If you feel you are in danger of physical harm, act to remove yourself from the situation and ask for help.
Close your eyes. Put your hands on your heart. Imagine you are suspended in a golden glowing globe of light. You are comfortable and content. Say the following internally or out loud. "Only those who love me unconditionally are allowed to penetrate my golden shield."
Imagine the golden globe surrounding you begin to radiate rays of gold that become brighter and brighter. Say the following internally or out loud. "My light shines so brightly that it repels all negative energy that attempts to penetrate my protective globe." Open your eyes and know that negativity will not impact your decisions about your worth.
