Ganesha is the wise Elephant  God and the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parviti.

The  Hindu Lord of Success. Also called “Ganapataye,” he is the “Remover of Obstacles” and “Lord of Wisdom and Intellect”

On the side of his  elephant head there you find a mouse as his sidekick. He is holding a stick with which to push you towards your goals.

He is never foreboding or cruel. He is not judgmental. He is strong and wise. He can use his trunk to literally pick things up and move them out of the way.

The Hindu scholar Wendy Doniger likens him to the elephant in “The Greatest Show On Earth” when the elephant in the circus saves Charleton Heston’s life by stopping the train with his trunk.

He provides a divine element of trust. He helps with new beginnings.

His name is invoked at the start of every new endeavor, ritual or ceremony.

Kundalini Yoga teaches that Gaṇeśa has his permanent abode in the Muladhara Chakra, or Root Chakra the base energetic center within every human being.

The Muladhara Chakra is the principal origin from which the manifesting energy of Shakti resides within each of us. When we awaken that energy, it helps us move through the Chakras with ease to activate a strong sense of self, express Divine love, communicate clearly and connect with our intuition.
It represents a willingness to release and move past the perceived obstacles in our lives.  when you  chant this mantra, you are aligning yourself with your desired outcome and moving towards it with conviction.
Use  this mantra when you want to clear the Chitta Vritti, or the anxious chatter of the mind. Repeat this Mantra 108 times on your Mala beads .
Prayer: To Remove Obstacles:

“He of the single tusk, whose vehicle is the mouse and he who penned the Mahabharata with his own hands.

vakratunda mahaakaaya suryakoti samaprabhaa.
nirvighnam kurumedeva sarvakaaryeshu sarvadaa..

Salutations to the supreme Lord Ganesha, whose curved trunk (vakra-tunda) and massive body (maha-kaayaa) shines like a million suns (surya-koti) and showers his blessings on everyone (sama-prabhaa). Oh my lord of lords Ganesha (kurume-deva), kindly remove all obstacles (nir-vighnam), always (sarva-) and forever (sarvadaa-) from all my activities and endeavors (sarva-kaaryeshu).”
