Fear and uncertainty envelope him; between him and his achievement stand hurdles, both real and imaginary: a possible spin from the bowler can overwhelm him, his own anxiety can paralyze him, cheering fans can distract him. He needs divine intervention then. He needs to focus, get rid of all hurdles, perform, get the final run, and achieve what he so longs for. In other words, he needs to think of Ganapati.
This book brings together 99 meditations to better understand the stories, symbols and rituals of that adorable elephantheaded Hindu god who removes hurdles and brings prosperity and peace. Known variously as Ganapati, Gajanana, Vinayaka or Pillayar, he can help all of us score a century in the game called life.
It’s no secret that women today are juggling a lot. We now make up more than half the workforce in the United States and are busier than ever with partners, children, family and friends, often putting the needs of others ahead of our own.
And if we feel overwhelmed by it all or fall short of perfection, many of us have learned to be our own worst critic rather than our own best friend.

Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the maiden, mother, crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physical stages of life, the fivefold model liberates the female experience from the shackles of the reproductive model.
In a woman's lifetime, she will go through several different cycles of beginnings, potential, creation, mastery, and wisdom. This fivefold model is not an adaption of the threefold. It is a new system that embraces the powerful, fluid nature of the lived experience of women today.
Join Lasara Firefox Allen as she explores the nature of the five archetypes; gives examples of what areas of life each might preside over; lists goddesses that fit within each archetype; suggests ways to begin building relationship with the different archetypes; and provides simple rituals for recognition, transition, and invocation.
“This fiercely inspired body of work is art, theory, and passion. Genius.”—Rosa De Anda, from her foreword
“Lasara Firefox Allen delves deep into the ways in which colonialist language has shaped our experience of the divine feminine. . . . This is an innovative work that has the potential to change the face of modern feminist spirituality.”—Suzanne Sterling, founder of Voice of Change
“Moving beyond our feminine biology as a definition of who we are and how we relate to the divine feminine, Lasara Firefox Allen creates a whole new template more suitable for women today. It is a game changer.”—Anodea Judith, PhD, author of Wheels of Life and Anodea Judith’s Chakra Yoga
“Lasara has brought us the goddesses who speak across time and space, who invite us to be inclusive and intersectional in our worship. . . . They remind us that the survival of our species, of all species of life, requires that we create diverse, complex, dynamic communities.”—Mai’a Williams, journalist, teacher, activist, and editor of Revolutionary Mothering
“This book makes room for discussions that include colonization, appropriation, representation, binary gender concerns, sexuality, and many other elements of dominant culture. . . . Each section gives a wealth of information on the ways in which we can connect to the five archetypes that Firefox Allen has presented.”—Crystal Blanton, MSW, editor of Bringing Race to the Table
“Lasara Firefox Allen has liberated the divine feminine from her tired tropes and set her free in a single step toward our collective embrace of a decolonized spirituality.”—Darcy Totten and Jasper James, Activism Articulated
“Jailbreaking the Goddess is a journey into history, myth, and the inner planes. . . . [It’s] one of those rare Pagan books that will still be talked about in fifty years; it’s that groundbreaking.”—Jason Mankey, editor of the Patheos Pagan channel and author of The Witch’s Athame
“Lasara Firefox Allen has liberated the goddess from every possible stereotype: race, reproductive status, age, sexual preference—even gender identity. Jailbreaking the Goddess provides countless possibilities for everyone to meet and engage with archetypal feminine power on their own terms. I love this book!”—Barbara Carrellas, author of Urban Tantra
“For nearly fifty years I have been the consort of a most extraordinary Woman/Priestess/Goddess. Never in those fifty years (or in our childhood years that preceded them) has her divine and infinite person-hood ever allowed itself to be limited and taken captive by the simplistic classic model of maid, mother, and crone. Lasara Firefox Allen’s Fivefold Goddess model identifies and describes the Mysteries of Modern Woman, and comes dangerously close to allowing me to at least hear Her sphinx’s riddle.”—Lon Milo DuQuette, author of Low Magick
“Jailbreaking The Goddess is a delicious tool for dismantling (and reimagining) the way we think about women’s spirituality and power. [The] fivefold goddess model honors the divine nature in all women, regardless of age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, and economic status. This is an exciting, smart, and practical approach to liberating the mind, body, and spirit.”—Laurie Lovekraft, Reclaiming Witch, priestess, and Huffington Post columnist
“Lasara is a dynamic and powerful woman who shows us that revolution starts within. This radical new way of looking at the divine feminine injects a much-needed freshness into Goddess spirituality!”—Sharon Knight, musician and priestess
“Yes and more yes to this new model, which moves us out of the expectation of conformation to outdated cultural norms. One of the things I love most about this book is how it allows for other forms to exist within it (and you!). It’s an opening of possibility for all women to re-divine all parts of ourselves.”—Jenya T. Beachy, teacher, blogger, and author of the forthcoming The Secret Country of Yourself
“A fantastic and sorely needed contribution to feminist spirituality discourse. It breaks open the tired tropes of maiden, mother, crone and makes more space for the variety of lived experiences of anyone who relates to the female experience.”—Niki Whiting, MA, co-founder of Many Gods West
“In Allen’s vision the goddess is young and old, creative and wise, and above all strong. This is a Goddess who can map onto our own journeys at any part of our life. Allen’s gentle, fierce, and wise work guides us through the process of rebuilding our sense of ourselves as holy through relationship to these new faces of the Goddess.”—Brandy Williams, author of For the Love of the Gods and The Woman Magician.
“Lasara Firefox Allen has created what may well be the definitive guide to feminist spirituality. . . . The depth of Lasara’s passion, knowledge, and skill allows her to reveal and reframe the fundaments of magick in a way that will have a lasting impact within the field of magick and throughout the wider culture.”—Philip H. Farber, author of Brain Magick
“Jailbreaking the Goddess is challenging, unabashed and wild, yet thoughtful and articulate. I found pieces of myself and my personal Goddess journey that have never been illuminated by any other text. Lasara Firefox Allen has truly broken the Goddess out of an antiquated jail. The world needs this freed Goddess. This book is part of that liberation.”—Courtney Weber, author of Brigid: History, Mystery, and Magick
“Reading Jailbreaking the Goddess is a view into a world that but rarely exposes itself to the likes of me. The magic is classic, but updated to self-rooted authority, and the politics are heart-felt, leading to a vision of societal transformation centered on the Woman of Power, Wisdom, and Compassion.”—Sam Webster, PhD, MDiv, Executive Director of the Pantheon Foundation
“Whilst honoring the roots of Goddess worship, Lasara has successfully opened up avenues of exploration for anyone who identifies with worship of the feminal divine in clear and loving guidance towards a stronger community of men, women, and all in between.”—Xochiquetzal Duti Odinsdottir, HPs/x, Wayfarer Tradition
In clearly written, lucid prose Dr. Bailly illuminates the many facets of Utpaladeva’s quest. At the core of his spiritual journey is the enigmatic relationship between devotion and grace: how much does spiritual attainment depend upon the individual’s efforts, and how much is a divine gift? And how are these to be realized while living in the midst of society, maintaining worldly obligations and lifestyle?
For over a thousand years the Shaiva community of Kashmir has used in its worship the hymns of Utpaladeva’s Shivastotravali. Here for the first time these hymns are presented in translation as English verse along with the Sanskrit, a clear and lively introduction, two appendices on special aspects of Kashmir Shaivism, and additional notes.
Rhodes uses these texts to develop a richly detailed portrait of Lakshmi, revealing unexpected dimensions of this enigmatic deity. Even as Lakshmi is best known as a goddess of wealth and well-being, she also maintains a strong esoteric presence, expressing herself as Siddhi, the magnificent Tantric goddess of spiritual power, and as Kundalini Shakti, the transformative cosmic force that exists within each individual. These identities express the “prosperity consciousness” that is the essential nature of the goddess and the divine source of all wealth. Invoking Lakshmi is not only a matter of calling upon the external form of the goddess but also of aligning one’s consciousness with the very essence of prosperity
With this handbook, readers can explore the history of Hindu mythology, follow a detailed timeline of key episodes and historical events, and look up specific elements of historical or contemporary Hinduism in a beautifully illustrated dictionary section. It is the ideal introduction to the origins of Hinduism, the culture that shaped it from antiquity to the present, and the age-old stories, ideas, and traditions that speak to the human condition as eloquently today as ever.
In The Mayan Ouroboros, the much-anticipated follow-up to his bestselling Serpent of Light, spiritual researcher Drunvalo Melchizdek reveals for the first time what Mayan elders have told him about this period. In this book he explains how to prepare for this transition to a new 13,000-year cycle by learning how to move out of our brain and into our hearts. He shares the Mayan insight of the importance of our heart connection to our survival and ability to thrive during these times.
Plus The Mayan Ouroboros reveals:
The untold positive side of the Mayan propheciesThe Mayan End Time--a seven-year period of transition which began in 2007The magnetic pole shift that is currently affecting humans around the worldThe new ways in which humans will begin to perceive and communicate in the world.The discovery of thousands of ancient Mayan codexes that are currently being decoded by the Mayans

The Twenty-Four Aspects of Mother Kali, then, represent in book form an attempt to remind humanity of their divine parentage, of their divine nature, of their source of origin. It is hoped that those who are still asleep to this supreme verity called the Divine Mother of the Universe will have their inherent spirituality awakened; that those who have fallen into complacency or despondency will have their commitment to this non-dual Truth of existence rekindled; that those who are already abiding in this Truth will further exult in this sublime Essence of pure Being and continue to spread the pure light of Timeless Awareness to all inhabitants sporting consciously or unconsciously in the boundless ocean of the Universal Mother’s ineffable Grace.
The landlocked mermaid is a symbol of the contemporary woman, trapped in a paradoxical dilemma of being part worldly and domesticated, part untamable and intuitive.
Margot's beautifully painted, contemporary mermaids are caught in the nets of their own comical dilemmas, circling the heart's fishbowl of romantic longings and in the murky depths of deep emotion. Whether it's the value of cultivating an inner water garden or coping with crow's feet and fish tails, Margot offers advice and an enchanting way of hydrating your weary mermaid soul.
Coy, sweetly mischievous, and a pinch sagacious, this is a book that, like a good glass of wine, can be enjoyed multiple times, sipped on, or downed in one reading.
Please cultivate the mind of loving me, the Earth. That is the expression of love for me, who grows all living beings including you. As children love and care for their parents, please love me like that. Then my love will be returned to all creatures on the Earth as a wider stream and ocean.
From the conversation with Mother Gaia.
This is the English version of the Hindi book, 'Shanti ki Khoj' published in 1970 by Jeevan Jagriti Kendra, Bombay as instructed by Osho.
We welcome to the present issue of Nectar a follow-up article on Jainism, a radio interview from the 1970s by Lex Hixon on “Divine Mother Transmission,” an article in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition on destroying delusion by the honorable Anam Thubten Rinpoche, and another article by D.S. Lokanath out of Portland, Oregon. Additionally, we are very gratified to see another of our guru’s articles in print, transcribed from a host of programs I myself recorded at the Vedanta Society of Oregon when he was still alive. In tandem with his discourse, I have offered a fresh article called “The Illusion of Change,” designed to complement the nondual message so expertly put forth by him. May the guru be pleased!
If you believe in Heaven and Hell
You believe in Multiple Universes and Parallel Dimensions
The bible is the Hebrew tales. It includes the old and new testaments and speaks mainly of the material realm.
The Pistis Sophia is the Coptic (Greek/Egyptian) sacred scriptures that reveal, in full detail, the heavenly realm Jesus came from. Within it, he tells of the angels, the process of reincarnation, and the consummation – the end of the material world.
The evidence in the Amen Code outlines the process for decoding the sacred texts. It mathematically confirms the existence of multiple universes, parallel dimensions, the Heavens, New Jerusalem reincarnation, and the afterlife with the “Predictive Result Standard” science requires. The evidence exposes and at times invalidates the traditional teachings of organized religion.
** Mathematical Confirmation of The Seal of God
** Confirmation of the Sign of Son of Man
** Mathematical Confirmation of the Gates of Heaven
** Mathematical Confirmation of New Jerusalem of Revelation 21
** Confirmation of the legitimacy of both the Old and New Testament
** Mathematical confirmation of the Seventh Heaven of Muhammad's Night Journey, as the portal of the multiverse of divine realms, which Jesus was able to control and pass through without aid -- confirmed by Jesus' sacred teachings
The Amen Code guides you through the process of deciphering the divine codes within the biblical and sacred scriptures so you can confirm for yourself if God sent man a sign of his existence, and a message.
Then, we explore the biblical prophecies that reveal the reason the bible was written and decipher the plans that were coded into the Bible. Do the plans reveal a New World Order, the means to stabilize and secure our global social and economic systems? Yes -- But, not the totalitarian surveillance state the current elite wish to create.
With illuminating reflections and real-world inspiration from nineteen wisewoman devotees of Brigid
Since its publication a short time ago, HeatherAsh Amara’s Warrior Goddess Training has become much more than just a book—its ten lessons have inspired thousands of women around the world to reclaim their power, their passion, and their freedom. In this much anticipated follow-up, The Warrior Goddess Way, Amara goes deeper, revealing three additional pillars of Warrior Goddess living that readers can apply to travel further down this sacred path: Wisdom, Authenticity, and Yes!Wisdom arises naturally when we learn to listen. Not to the voices in our head, but the voices in our cells, our natural discernment, and our creative knowing.Authenticity is embracing your vulnerability, your silliness, and owning all your superpowers. It’s accepting and loving what is, not what “should be.”Yes! is about celebrating everything. All the time. (Even your greatest defeats.)
In exploring these three pillars, Amara delves into topics such as forgiveness, relationships, and finding your inner stillness. You will learn the art of maintaining emotional balance, cultivating self-respect, practicing heartfelt communication, and the power of consciously embracing life’s beginnings and endings. Like Warrior Goddess Training, this book is packed full of exercises and explorations designed to help you integrate the Warrior Goddess Way into your everyday life.
You CAN learn to enjoy everything you do. Your potential for dancing through life is waiting to be awakened. Live the Warrior Goddess Way and claim the woman you are destined to be.
Around the sixth century C.E., following the rise of several male deities to prominence, a new theistic movement began in which the supreme being was envisioned as female, known as the Great Goddess (Maha-Devi). Appearing first as a violent and blood-loving deity, this Goddess gradually evolved into a more benign figure, a compassionate World-Mother and bestower of salvific wisdom. It is in this beneficent mode that the Goddess appears in the Devi Gita.
This work makes available an up-to-date translation of the Devi Gita, along with a historical and theological analysis of the text. The book is divided into sections of verses, and each section is followed by a comment explaining key terms, concepts, ritual procedures, and mythic themes. The comments also offer comparisons with related schools of thought, indicate parallel texts and textual sources of verses in the Devi Gita, and briefly elucidate the historical and religious background, supplementing the remarks of the introduction.
Create peace, find love, bring healing to yourself and others, and live in harmony with the Earth. Embrace your own divinity and you’ll connect with the divinity of the world around you. Through mantras, magical activities, and spiritual rituals for nine fundamental spiritual principles, you’ll give voice to the unique wisdom of each goddess and discover her message for your life and for our world.
Peace • Caring for the Environment • Love • Self-love
Forgiveness • Healing • Growth • Hope • Spirituality
