Mercury Retrograde? Ganesha to the Rescue!

My apologies for posting this so late, but like many of you this current Mercury Retrograde came for me early during it’s “shadow phase” and I dropped my laptop and utterly destroyed my hard drive! All over the world folks like me are experiencing challenges associated with the planetary ruler of communication, travel, electronics, contracts, etc. This thrice yearly occurrence is enough to have garnered the attention of the world now that the internet and the noticeable stops and starts over this hectic time have made it more believable for a single planetary change of orbit to wreak havoc on a global scale.

Many popular remedies for the Mercury Retrograde prescribe a combination of burning a Mercury Retrograde or Reversal Candle with a specially formulated Mercury Retrograde Oil. I have found that burning a Ganesha candle and doing a simple mantra to the Hindu deity Ganesha (the Remover of Obstacles) is equally –if not more– effective.

The difference is that typical Mercury Retrograde candles and oils are designed to counteract all the effects of the Mercury Retrograde. Burning a candle to the “Remover of Obstacles” removes the negative effects of troublesome mishaps while allowing the positive effects of removing, releasing and banishing to continue unabated. (Good stuff that!)

Here at Mystic Journey Bookstore, our large community of yogis, yoginis and mystics resonate comfortably with this beloved Elephant God whose reputation for removing obstacles begins with the utterance of his divine mantras to open any spiritual endeavor that requires a connection to the divine.
— Traditionally his mantra is recited at least 108 times on a string of prayer beads or malas that are available in a selections of seeds, wooden beads and stones.
— During the Mercury Retrograde which lasts from January 5th, 2016 through January 25th, 2016 we expect to have to restock our colorful inventory of Ganesha candles several times.

The Process:

— Anoint your chosen Ganesha candle with your favorite Mercury Retrograde or Ganesha Oil or put a few drops of coconut oil and a sprinkling of brown sugar in the candle since Ganesha enjoys coconuts and sweets.
–Recite the following mantra 108 times after lighting the candle.

AUM VAHKRAH TOON DAH YAH HUM.

This is a powerful mantra from Ganesha Purana. When things are not in your favor, or when the minds of the people turn negative, depressed or discouraged, the attention of Ganesha may be drawn by this mantra to straighten their ways. The HUM symbolizes “Delay no more, my Lord, in straightening the paths of the crooked-minded ones.” This mantra is used many a times in the Ganesha Purana to reduce the violence of cruel demons.

I have found that this particular mantra is short but very effective. It is best to do the mantra every day at the same time, but I always wear a wrist mala so that I can say it whenever I feel the need which lately has been several times a day.

Hope this helps you during this often troublesome times.
