The New Year offers us a chance to bring our dreams, desires and wishes into our lives. But sometimes we run into problems manifesting new year intentions because we first have to move around the obstacles standing in the way. Those obstacles can often be our emotions or thought patterns. If we take our old automatic responses with us into the year will anything really change? The first few weeks of the New Year offer us a wonderful opportunity to examine the thoughts that are holding us back from achieving what we are wishing for. Take a close look at the obstacles that stand in you way. What behavior or thought is preventing you from achieving the things you desire?
I find calling on Ganesh the Hindu elephant-headed god can help me move forward around the obstacles or hindrances in my life. Ganesh ( Ganesha. Ganeshe) is the Lord of successes and the destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. Wearing a necklace with Ganesh reminds me that I am not powerless over my obstacles.
The gemstone Blue Kyanite also assists us in removing obstacles. Its vibration can help to cut away the things that stand in our way. Blue Kyanite forms in blades. If you think of the Kyanite as a knife blade you can use it to cut away any negative thought patterns or behaviors that no longer serve you. Once free of these patterns you move forward to manifest what you truly desire.
An example of this may be that you would like to meditate everyday. But your thought pattern is, you don’t have time. Its this thought or belief of no time to mediate that is actually standing in your way. Call on the Kyanite to cut away this limiting belief. Move your thoughts and desires into the same vibration, one of, there is time for meditation everyday.
