The lotus flower is a transcendental symbol of an illumined soul in it’s qualities of beauty, purity and enlightenment. It is rooted in mud and grows in murky water. A lotus grows upward towards the sun’s light, where one day it emerges at last and unfolds. The mud that nourishes it’s roots represents the physical realm. It is through our human experiences that we seek to grow and bloom. Rising above the mud of our material world to blossom in our spiritual life requires great faith and commitment.
At our core we are perfect health, joy, trust and love. This is the true expression of our essence. We are Luministic by nature. But along our life journey we experience trauma, stress and strains that become confined in our bodies. When our bodies hold onto trauma and stress, our tissues and fluids are no longer in harmony, our core-body system becomes compromised. When there is disharmony in the body, the body reacts with symptoms of pain and discomfort. Emotional, physical and behavioral issues arise.
One of the most powerful energy healing therapies that exist today is known as Shamanic Cranial Sacral Therapy. This combines sensitive, hands on bodywork with meditative use of the inner eye and inner ear. It is a gentle, non-invasive modality that starts by a shamanic healer focussing on the cranial wave that pulses throughout our entire body. Once a misalignment is detected the intuitive practitioner employs gentle cranial sacral techniques with a powerful intention that facilitates the release of stored trauma and subsequent stress disorders.
To use the image of the lotus the shamanic therapist enters into the mud of the clients physical realm in order to get to the emotional core issues that are inhibiting the growth and or health and vitality of the client or lotus. As the lotus unwinds itself from the entanglements of suppressed emotions it is now free to grow and unfold into the light.
In many cases, for the first time, liberated from ancient shame, guilt, resentments and fears, clients can experience beauty and the purity of returning to a state of innocence and spontaneity. And they begin to awaken to an awareness of their own natural self- healing process and spiritual evolution as a human being, which is their innate birth right. The soul illumines from within. The lotus opens more and more to the eternal soul.
