A Fun Mantra to Help Remove Obstacles.
This is one of many mantras to Ganesh, the elephant headed deity who is said to remove obstacles. There are many variations, melodies, and methods but this is one that I learned from my Sri Vidya Tantra teacher, Psalm Isadora.
It can be chanted silently 108 times or loudly with drums while you dance. Do whatever works for you. Ganesh is said to live in our first chakra, the muladhara chakra, which is the principle on which the manifestation of primordial Divine Force rests. This energy, otherwise known as Shakti, is the manifesting energy of the Universe. When this energy is awakened through breath, mantra and drum, it can inspire courage in otherwise challenging times.
This is a quick and condensed version of the mantra to awaken your energy – OM GAM GANAPATAYE NAMAHA – which I like to loosely (and playfully) translate to: “Yo wake up Root chakra, lift that energy so I can remove my obstacles. Yeah!”
