Lotus Flower
A symbol of beauty, purity, and eternity. In Hinduism, it is believed that within each person is the spirit of this sacred flower. Though its roots are in the mud, the lotus emerges from the darkness, rises above the water and blossoms into the full beauty of daylight. With our own feet grounded in experience and our heads held high in the sun, we can attain the highest form of enlightenment and, in so doing, experience the liberation from instinct to spirituality. The Lotus symbolizes the radiant incorruptible essence of all things. A symbol of peace, enlightenment and transformation.

Lucky Bamboo
Bamboo has been a symbol of good fortune in Asian culture for more than 4000 years. It enhances the flow of “chi” (life force). Needing very little care, water, and low light, the lucky bamboo is able to thrive well in most environments. Care of the Lucky Bamboo: Use only filtered or drinking spring water, keep roots covered. Bamboo likes to be in very low indirect sunlight and does not do well in metal containers. Traditional: 3 yang energy (or 2 for yin energy) stalks:attract happiness, 5 (or 4):attract wealth, 7 (or 8): result in good health, 21: overall powerful blessing.  (Yang: Masculine, Yin: Feminine)  

I honor the place, in you, in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place, in you, which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one. 

Om (Ohm)
Om is the sacred symbol which represents the infinite. Om transcends words & letters because it is the sound of creation. When repeated, Om is said to generate the mystic power that leads one’s mind into meditation and into the highest states of consciousness.  It is said by some to be “God’s Voice”. Supposedly if everything were to stop making sound, all at once, we could still hear the sound “Ohm”. When you see the Om symbol, let it remind you of God, the creator, the un-manifest, and the true spiritual being that you are.    

Om Mani Padme Hum
This mantra is a powerful blessing. A mantra is a type of prayer recited over and over not unlike the prayers of Christians and many other religions. This mantra loosely translated means “Hail the Jewel in the Lotus”. It is an invocation of Aviokiteswara (one manifestation of Buddha) who is the Protector. It is found inscribed on everything from rocks, to prayer wheels, and jewelry. It has been said that this mantra, in just a few words,  contains the teachings of Buddha. His teachings of love, understanding, and peace. These teachings are so vast that the translation of The Jewel in the Lotus is “The Divine Within, or The God Within”.  

This is an extension of oneself to help one tap into the powerful, all-knowing, and intuitive voice within. It is a communication device between the conscious and the unconscious. One already knows the answer to every question one will ever ask, it is within. By relaxing, and then asking what a yes would look like, and then a no, watch what the pendulum does and this will be what you look for in your answer. Now, ask a question that can be answered yes or no. Watch what the pendulum does. The energy that moves the pendulum is you answering from within, it is moved with your energy, powered by your Higher self. 

Rudraksha Seed
Mystic Power Bead: For thousands of years the Rudraksha Seed Bead has adorned Sages & Saints & any wanting to seek enlightenment. Hindu legend states that Lord Shiva became so compassionate after seeing the sufferings of mankind that He shed a tear and the tear from Shiva’s eye grew into the Rudraksha tree. It is known also as the Seed of Compassion. This seed has been known to have magnetic properties & will align to North-South direction if suspended. It has been known to have a positive effect on the heart and nerves, relieves stress, anxiety, and depression. It also aids antiaging & helps concentration. People with high blood pressure have benefited because of wearing the Rudraksha. Wear your own seed for self-empowerment and your continued journey towards enlightenment.
