Chapter 3: Reflections
She will guide you through new beginnings, “Enlightened” is a reminder to you that there will be light at your desired destination. Just like the Lotus Flower, we can rise from the mud, bloom out of darkness, and radiate into the world.
Let the magic of Moonstone channel the white illumination of moonbeams to shine upon your quest to peace and harmony. Associated to the energy of moon, she will raise your vibration and uplift your spirit guiding you through us of darkness and into the light.
When your light flickers or when days are darker, let Rose Quartz remind you that love can conquer it all. Through self- love and accepting love, don’t forget that it will all start love and harmony.
The Story & Inspiration
Coming from a Buddhist family, the lotus flower has been a vital role in my life as a symbol of spiritual awakening. My mum loved to use idioms to impart life teachings to me and I remember vividly she taught me this statement- a buddha proverb:
“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world.”
From deep mud and far away from the sun, the Lotus Flower grows and reaches the light in its full bloom. A symbol of purity, enlightenment, growth and rebirth, the lotus flower teaches us that every individual has the potential to become grow and be enlightened. For when we conquer all that come, we will only then be enlightened.
From logos to light codes, colours and mantras, my connection with this symbol is so deep that I have incorporated her into many aspects of my life.
During this time of hardship (especially during the pandemic)- where everything seemed to be crashing down on me, I’ve dug deep and reminded myself that there would be light at the end of the tunnel. Enlightened is inspired from my deep spiritual roots and my love for the lotus flower.
All in the lotus flower, I wanted to create a clean, simple design that focuses on the beauty of the Lotus Flower.
