www.boldsky.com Everyone wants wealth and money, some work very hard to earn money and some want to get easily without any effort. Likewise, many people faces financial problem, inspite of working hard and earning loads of money. Those who face financial instability ultimately take on the spiritual path in order to get solace from the divine power. Goddess Lakshmi is the Goddess of Wealth. She is widely worshiped by Hindus and devotees try hard to seek her blessings for overall growth, especially to attain wealth. 
There are some Lakshmi Mantras and Hindu prayers that are very effective. In order to invoke the blessing of Goddess Lakshmi, chant the Lakshmi mantra and pray with certain disciplinary in order to bring wealth and prosperity in your life. 
Lakshmi Mantras: (1) OM Shreem Maha Lakshmiyei Namaha; (2) OM Hreem Shreem Kleem Maha Lakshmi Namaha.

Ways to invoke Goddess Lakshmi's blessings: (1) Keep your house clean; this is very necessary, as the Goddess appreciates cleanliness and visits the cleanest homes first. Light lamps in the morning and evening. (2) Decorate the puja room; this is imperative as it gives the whole atmosphere a festive feel. Lay a fresh cloth on a bench or table with a small pile of grains in the center of the cloth. (3) Place Lakshmi statue correctly.

All the fortune of the world is the energy of Lakshmi Devi, the goddess of fortune. Fortune does not simply mean money. Fortune means good health, popularity, comforts in life, good friendship, good family, etc. Vijayalakshmi, the author of the article, mentions many effective ways to invoke Goddess Lakshmi's blessings. She also suggests to beautifully decorate the puja room once the house is cleaned, and then place on the cloth a metal or earthen pitcher containing five leaves, a betel nut, a flower, a coin and some rice grains. It is good to offer fruits, sweets and pour a mixture of puffed rice, coriander and cumin seeds over Lakshmi's idol. In the Sri Lakshmi Narayana Aspect of the Supreme Lord, Lord Narayana is the energetic and His spouse, Lakshmi Devi, is His energy. 


WHAT DO THE VEDIC TEACHINGS TELL US? 
Goddess Lakshmi is the consort and shakti, or potency, of Lord Vishnu. Lakshmi, or Sri when she is especially known as the goddess of beauty (though sometimes considered to be separate entities), is the Goddess of fortune, wealth, power, and loveliness. Wealth means not only money, but also the higher values and qualities of life. The power of the mind and intellect is also a must if one wants to be truly wealthy, which includes spiritual wealth. ... As the spouse of Lord Vishnu, she appears whenever He does in each of His appearances, such as Vamana, Parashurama, Rama, or Krishna. In each of these appearances, she appeared as Padma or Kamala, Dharani, Sita, and Rukmini respectively. They are inseparable. Lakshmi is also known in Her other eight forms as Veera, Adhi, Gaja, Vijaya, Dhana, Aiswarya, Santhan, and Dhanya
