The Lotus Flower is one of the most significant and profoundly touching spiritual symbols with the deepest foundations in Egyptology, Hinduism and Buddhism.
Though the conditions are tough, the lotus flower heeds the call of the sun each morning, breaks through the surface of the water and blooms untouched by the murky mud; each petal remaining clean and pure. Closing at night, it sinks below the water’s surface, only to resurface again in the morning.
Symbolic of the human journey, we grew in the waters of our mothers womb and were birthed into the sun light. As life unfolds we experience a full spectrum of thoughts, feelings and emotions and the plight of the human condition unravels, revealing the darkest parts of ourselves and the collective consciousness. Inevitably we are left with pain that we must overcome and rise above, so that we too can bloom out of the darkness like the lotus and radiate love, compassion, kindness and light into our world.
“Om mani padre hum” the ancient rhythmic Buddhist mantra, in English translates to “Praise to the Jewel in the Lotus” and represents purity and health within the body, powerful creator energy, walking and talking in truth, wisdom seeking and keeping and blessing every step we take on this Earth with respect and honour with an intention to always move toward unity.
A beautiful quote from Rumi can be spoken aloud as a prayer, a blessing each time you wear this piece of magic ~
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” Rumi
The Petalled Lotus (Sahasrara) is an emblem of nature’s superlative design and symbolic of the Sanskrit name for the crown chakra, which is said to be in the form of a lotus with 1,000 petals arranged in 20 layers.
This wheel, or vortex, of pranic energy located at the top of the head is said to be the centre of one's spiritual connection to the divine and yogic teachings assert that it gives us the ability to experience a connection with God, or the universal Consciousness.
The petals of the flower reflect the light beautifully and the piece is complete with an Amethyst gemstone.
This piece is so versatile you can wrap it around your wrist, wear as a long hanging necklace or as a choker necklace inspiring divinity of your spoken word!!
Please receive my prayer to you ~ "May you be blessed with the light of one thousand suns and enjoy infinite love, joy and creativity."
The pendant measures 40mm in diameter.
The Sahara Lotus Flower Collection is dedicated to my daughter, Sahara. My Jewel.
