    Today we are commencing the first day of celebrations for the Navratri festival. Navratri spans over 9 nights to honour the different forms of the divine feminine.

    Day 1: Celebrating and honouring Goddess Shailputri, the daughter of the mountains. Shailputri is an avatar of Durga (shown in this photo) and is also known as Parvati.

    Shailputri rides a bull ? carries a trident in her right hand, lotus in her left and has a crescent moon ? situated above her head. It is said to bring good luck to the individual who honours her on this first day of Navratri 

    So what can you do today?

    Offering white coloured foods and sweets. Setting our intention to strengthen our spiritual practice to attain the highest connection with the divine. It is also said that wearing orange or yellow on this day is auspicious.

    How can you honour the divine feminine within and around you? Wearing your favourite clothing, lighting a candle surrounding yourself with the beauty of nature etc.

    With love, the Lakshmi team. Wishing you all the health and prosperity in your life.
