Ganesha parades over the dawn of 2023 like a sacred celebration, a soft parade, drawing in blessed and beautiful new beginnings and an influx of light to our hearts.
Imagine rainbow umbrellas flying through the sky, kites soaring by, peppermint candies scattered as the heavens open in response to our joyful expectation. We stand at the portal between worlds old and new.
This is the potentiality that 2023 brings, awakened through the blessing of Ganesha’s playful prosperity. The magic carpet ride that seems only a dream lands at our feet, beckoning the soul towards a fresh adventure.
To achieve spiritual abundance and the very real possibility of fulfilling our dreams, Ganesha gives us the wings to fly this month by anchoring us at the root chakra with spiritual protection and stable foundations.
Fierce Taoist shamanic goddess of spiritual awakening, Xi Wang Mu, urges us to invest the energy and effort into fulfilment of the most cherished aspirations. True labours of love ask us to surrender our doubts and fears and believe in our destiny. The most exceptional outcomes are indeed possible, but they will require a long-term commitment to discipline and divine timing. Sometimes that timing may not be as swift as you wish, yet receiving the gift before you are ready for it can be far more difficult to endure. The so-called delays are protective blessings that also increase our capacity for trust and patience. All things will happen in harmony with your own heart. Trust yourself and trust your journey.
Ganesha and Xi Wang Mu remind us of the stages of creation, and encourage the soul to find joy in each phase, to celebrate the sacred journey of life and all the beauty that it has to offer, to partake in sacred play, every day. Once you yearned for where you are at now, and in the not too distant future you will be looking back in wonder at all you had accomplished, and be readying yourself for the next spiral of your soul journey far beyond what you can even imagine at this time.
“Partake in sacred play, every day…”
We radiate gratitude for Ganesha and attract his blessings. He conquers obstacles, dances whilst doing so, inspires our greatest intentions and constrains the negative workings of the ego. Together we open our hearts to the generous, good-natured blessing from the Universe for beautiful beginnings. Nothing goes unseen or is beyond the awareness of the Divine. When the faith and confidence is present, combined with patience, the obstacles to our creative manifestations will be cleared. He is the protector of our creative freedom and will pave the way for the soul to flourish.
Gratitude and dancing, music and kind-hearted laughter attract Ganesha’s presence. We can imagine him as the Divine Child and finding that child-like self within our own hearts allows us to experience a spontaneous joy of being. Together we can join the marching band of the soft parade, twirl our fire batons, or bang the drums, and dance to the cosmic rhythms, and not worry so much. Less worry. More willingness. Let us cheer each other on, for here you are, doing a great job in this game of life.
Ganesha’s belly contains the creativity of the cosmos, encompassing seven realms above, seven realms below, and the seven seas. We can offer every part of our lives, our experience, our wishes and our challenges for his blessing, that we may attain the most beautiful fruition to benefit all beings.
By tapping into the energy of Ganesha, we tune into our own multidimensional and complete nature, realising the seven planes of consciousness as they exist within us. In our Community of the Sacred, Ganesha is our spirit guide throughout January, presiding over the fresh potential of the year, and all that can be.
The spiritual energy of this divine guide helps us build strong foundations within ourselves – of trust, of commitment to our path, of discipline but also wisdom to play and lighten our hearts so we can stay engaged in the ‘spiritual long game’. Our souls possess enormous strength to create an alchemical marriage of the disparate parts of ourselves, but only when we feel safe, held, nourished, and grounded. From those strong roots, our unique soul flower will bloom.
Ritual to celebrate your beautiful beginning with Ganesha!
Every day is a potential fresh new chapter in your soul journey. Every moment is a spiritual opportunity to release the past and begin anew, with inspired determination. Believe in your ability to begin anew.
Celebrate Ganesha along with our Community of the Sacred this month, and at any time, through this simple mantra and short ritual to dance your prayers!
First you can choose a piece of music that inspires you in this moment. Ganesha rules the base chakra and that is our home of rhythm, so percussive dance music may feel aligned for you. I also created the White Light Frequencies music to heal and reprogram your mind, body and soul with love, and you can dance or meditate to any of the tracks on that album. You may want to start there or explore one of our dance journey playlists on my Spotify channel.
We create these dance journey playlists regularly to inspire our community to move and express the soul.

Once you have your music selected, it is time to say your prayer of intention and mantra. You can use the prayer below or mix it up with your own heartfelt words.
Beloved Ganesha, you are the divine child within, and the blessing to begin. I ask for the loving enlightened blessings of the cosmos to enter my heart and inspire my soul journey for the spiritual benefit of all beings. May my heart’s desires manifest with grace. I offer this dance for the greater good! Jai Ganesha! Jai Ganesha! Now dance to your heart’s content. Finish your practice with your hands at your heart and trust completely that blessings have been bestowed. Carry those good energies with you for your entire life journey through cultivating gratitude.
