100 Lotus Flowers

2009: 100 Lotus Flowers taking me through a transition in my life. Each flower is a message which brings me closer to the goal. I try to come to terms with myself, and be myself. What messages do the flowers hold?
2013: What is the goal? I no longer know what it is, except for reaching the 100. But the 100 was not supposed to be the goal itself, but rather help reach the.....the.....I am lost, honestly lost. Everything I was striving for has diminished in importance. I do not know what to strive for. I think striving for anything now is pointless....but I will keep drawing and painting.
2014: A renewed sense of purpose, things seem to be falling into place.

100 Lotus Flowers, 100 points of healing.

Creating a Healing Ritual

Need nine from these thirteen. Which to choose.
I have much building inside me. Many emotions that I need to get rid of. They are like an acidic wave eating away at my mind and my insides. I have been so bogged down by the anxiety and the stress and strain, that I really feel cloaked in some sort of dark cover. There is a bit of sparkle which I see through the crack in the cloak sometimes. However, because I see that sparkle, I wish to discard this ridiculous cloak and cast it out....to be free to experience the sparkle.

This morning, I realized that on 31st August, there is a particular planetary alignment that represents release from old wounds. It is also a Blue Moon, quite full, which doubles the energies of whatever ideas or intentions are put out there. I will do a ritual, to release my mind of these negative energies using these Lotus Flowers.

The Lotus Flower, being one that emerges into the mud, and re-blooms every morning fresh and new, is an apt symbol for what I wish to do. I have these thirteen that I think are appropriate, and I have to narrow them down to nine. I will release the nine into the ocean on the 31st August.  Tacked to each laminated flower will be the "hurt" that I want release from. Why nine? It is at the end, a symbol of endings- symbolizing the end of my carrying these burdens.

The hurt, written on paper, will be affixed with white glue, so that the ocean water, cleanser that it is, will wash it off the flower and swallow it up into Herself....

With my contact information (blog and facebook) on the flowers, I hope that they will find their way to someone, who will somehow be changed by the find.
The Ocean is the great healer, the Lotus Flower will emerge where it needs to be.
