The lotus flower is widely seen and used in Hinduism and Buddhism, in these cultures it is a sacred flower that symbolizes purity, purity, your beauty, inner growth and the connection with the universe. The lotus flower has a symbolic meaning for the ‘growth towards enlightenment’ and is mainly the result of the flower’s growth process. The lotus flower nestles in the mud under water and then grows very vigorously towards the light, after which we can observe a beautiful flower on the water. We can also experience this process as a human being, then see the mud as ignorance and suffering and as you grow your hand becomes wiser and as the lighting is achieved, you beam like that beautiful lotus flower. What are chakras? Chakra is Sanskrit for ‘wheel’ and means wheel of energy. They are the energy centres in your body. Most traditions are based on seven chakras. Sometimes there is also talk of eight or nine. The chakras together form a system. This means that they have an effect on each other and that they work together. Every chakra in us has specific characteristics and functions. The chakras are different kinds of consciousness. These are actually the different areas of your life. For example, the first chakra is linked to survival and the second to creativity. The third is your self-esteem and the fourth tells you something about love.
