Todays Reading - Sarasvati

Todays reading is from the Goddess Guidance Oracle by Doreen Virtue. The illustration is by Sue Halstenberg.

Sarasvati is the wife of Brahma and the Goddess of the arts. She helps us with all types of creative expression and prizes knowledge, learning and creativity above all else. Her name means ‘the one who gives the essence of our own self’.

Sarasvati reminds us that the pursuit of wealth alone will not make us happy. Happiness stems from joy, and joy comes from the inside first. To feel true happiness we must live our lives true to our own nature and be able to express who we are eloquently and comfortably. Creative expression comes in many forms, writing, speaking, singing, dancing, drawing and painting, sculpting and creating music. Each of these expressions has many outlets and avenues. Many people regard themselves as having no artistic value, but Sarasvati reminds us that creativity is as diverse as we are. If you have something that enables you to feel joy, then look and see how you are using your creativity to enhance that. You may be a mother, using your creativity to love and teach your children. You may be a business man finding new and creative ways to enhance your work. You may be a gardener sculpting the landscape into something beautiful. Whoever you are you have inside you creative power that will enhance your life if you let it.

Our culture gives us little time to concentrate on creative pursuits, unless we are lucky enough to be an artist or writer. Money is the focus in life. Even when we think about letting our creativity out in a medium such as painting or music, we think of how we will pay for it. Thinking creatively is also a way in which Sarasvati helps us. Ask her to help you to find a way to start a creative project that gives you joy, without having to spend money you do not have. 

Allow yourself freedom of expression today and start to feel the joy this awakens in your heart.
