Ganesha Cards #15: Revelation

From Angela Hartfield’s Whispers of Lord Ganesha Cards

Get ready for key changes in your external and internal worlds.

This card is a deep royal purple. This color purple is associated with royalty, dignity and luxury. It can also represent balance between the physical and spiritual self. Ganesha can be seen looking down upon the sparkling universe, reveling in its multitude of lights. Ganesha wears a gold crown and beautiful purple robe caught in the movement of the atmosphere.

The revelation card represents coming to the end of a cycle making it time for you to create something new. It is time to break down some of the structures that you have created in your world. This has the potential to feel painful and challenging as you go through the process.

A new perspective will emerge from this deep reflection. You may come to a better understanding about the role of your ego in shaping your decisions and the continued investment in the idea that we are separate from others. This wisdom will help you grow stronger and more composed. Without a doubt there will be some challenges and obstacles that will arise to distract you from this new path of spiritual growth and enlightenment. Remain as honest as you can to foster these positive changes even when anxiety arises.

According to Angela, “when you begin to reach for your goal you will come to realize that your true security and strengths lie within yourself and your relationship with the universe, and not in some false belief system or artificially created world. Be willing to reveal your truth to those around you.”

Esho Funi is a phrase that refers to the oneness of life and environment. In SGI Buddhist discussion groups this concept is tapped into quite often and it’s no surprise. Everyone, no matter their belief system, struggles with evaluating the internal and external influences on our lives. We often make decisions to work on our internal development, believing that what occurs in the external is separate from our true selves. While external happenings are viewed at experiences we have a choice to participate in, they are really external reflections of the internal workings of us all. So, that which is outside of us is also inside of us. As all the elements in the Universe are held in each human body and living thing, there is no space between us save for every other molecule. Therefore, a positive revelation for one can cause a ripple effect in the lives of others, interconnected and begging for expansion.

Ganesha Cards #41: Belonging

From Angela Hartfield’s Whispers of Lord Ganesha Cards

You are surrounded by abundance and prosperity, luxury and quality, prestige and sophistication, value and elegance.

Stories tell of Gnasha’s two wives symbolically represented through prosperity and success. This polyamorous relationship is guaranteed that you’ll have these important things always nearest you.

Material success and the achievement of spiritual goals are often not aligned. One has to be more important than the other, and which ever that is for you will become the entry point for the things you want in your life. This wish is for you to realize that by actively developing your spirituality and consciously working with that which is greater than your self, you will experience positive flow and affecting all areas of your life.

Often the desire to build the spiritual self is relegated for those considered eccentric however there is great reward and fulfillment in a dynamic spiritual life that will bring the abundance of love and finance to you. Our relationships should be developed in the vein of true kinship, beyond the limits of intellectual knowledge and material measurements.

Ganesha Cards—3 card spread: #6 Fulfillment, #24 Wholeness, #3 Delight

From Angela Hartfield’s Whispers of Lord Ganesha

No matter what you want to do or become, you will achieve more with knowledge.

Ganesha appears on this card reading a scroll which is a symbol of the importance of education and the pursuit of knowledge. This could indicate there is some time to increase study and learning. Go deep into inquiry into a field that you want to explore and choose to experience a teacher who can help you learn more.

You may need to find someone to consult for more information; a counselor, an author, a therapist or a spiritual advisor. Through this you may discover new skills and have the wisdom to receive guidance and advice.

You are also your own teacher, so seek the information you desire at your fingertips. Knowledge can never be taken from you. “No matter what you’re longing to do or become, you will benefit from gaining more knowledge.” This is a time for curiosity and an open mind.

Acknowledge the oneness of all life

You are a part of something much larger. You are connected to this life and that which is greater and outside of ourselves. Ganesha here is guiding you to recognize the sacred truth that you were divine being, here to give and receive love. Angela suggest “it is time to recognize your role in this life; that you are complete and whole as you are and lack nothing.”

Green is representative of the fourth chakra, the heart chakra. The heart chakra is the center where we experience love and when the heart chakra is open you are able to create a safe and supportive loving environment. Compassion is at an abundance and empathy flows. This would be a wonderful time to see the divine in yourself and others.

This is peace.

We are born with the gift of laughter. Laughter is a natural medicine.

Laughter is a natural occurrence that can make you feel different. It can make you feel good and joyful. It can be a diversion from the difficult and stagnant. It creates real and tangible changes in the body. Enjoy humor and the lightness of spirit. “There are actually some stories that Ganesha was born from Shiva’s laughter.” You may ask Ganesha to help you to lighten up through laughter. 😆

There’s nothing like a proper belly laugh!
