The Lotus flower is an important symbol in many cultures and most commonly represents purity and spiritual awakening. The Lotus is considered pure as it is able to emerge from the muddy waters where it grows, pristine and clean. It is for this reason, it is often seen as a symbol of rebirth and purity.
The purple Lotus is considered the mystic Lotus and is representational of spiritual awakening.
Magnolia Flower Meaning;
The white Magnolia flower symbolizes purity, beauty and perseverance, and is often associated with nobility; noble character, greatness of mind, and the strength within us that is comes from our ancestral history and is the basis of our spiritual foundation.
The Sanskrit word for “noble or awakened heart” is Bodhichitta. To quote Pema Chodron, “It is said that in difficult times, it is only Bodhichitta that heals. When inspiration has become hidden, when we feel ready to give up, this is the time when healing can be found in the tenderness of pain itself.”
The magnolia design reminds you to honour your past to help you find the courage to see the Bodhichitta in small, every day moments. Connecting with your ancestors through meditation can help identify patterns that no longer serve you and give you the strength to let go of limiting beliefs.
When I created this design, I was living in a house with a large magnolia tree in the front yard. It bloomed for most of the year with giant, white fragrant flowers. While initially being inspired just by the blooms, through my meditations, the connection with my Polish/Ukrainian ancestors intensified. I felt very supported by my ancestors, many that I’d never met. The sensation that they were there with me, standing by my side, was beautiful. And then, during a constellation exercise, my grandmother (who had passed away when I was a teen) came to me with words of love and encouragement through another workshop participant.
These experiences influenced this design, and in particular, the intricate “flowery lace” pattern around the mandala, which is reminiscent of the hand-painted Ukrainian eggs that adorned the shelves of my grandmother’s home.
