Lotus Jewel Energy:
Lotus Jewel Energy came to us on 6-9-10 and is a combination of many ideas & forms within Buddhism that I have been attracted to since my first attunement to Reiki.
The Lotus flower is one of my favorite flowers in the garden since it spring forth from mud in the bottom of the pond, starts as a pod, slowly opens up among the green lily pads and once it opens in it's bloom last only for a few days of enjoyment. How appropriate that it is a symbol of enlightenment in Buddhism.
This Energy System combines the symbol of the Lotus flower with one of the most ancient Mantras in Buddhism. A mantra is a phrase that is repeated to help keep one centered & balanced in meditation as well as keeping one in the present moment in daily life. Many use mantras as tools to help them reach enlightement.
Buddhism in my perspective is not a religion as such but rather a philosophy of life to aid one on their spiritual path to reach the state of bliss & enlightenment.
We set the intention that the Lotus Jewel Attunement occur gradually as you complete each step of the process in the manual and complete the practice period. We have embedded the attunement into this manual & process so that it maybe received for your highest good & you will reap continuing joy as you share it with others. If you have any ?'s along the way please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I recently found a poem by Lama Surya Das that outlines the basis Buddhist principles in modern terms. On the left you can click on the pdf file to download & print the poem:
"GUIDED MEDITATION FOR GOING DEEPER BUDDHA'S SECRET MEDITATION by Lama Surya Das
Seeing thru - Just being
Through and through.
Simply pay attention,
It pays off.
When you become clear, everything becomes clear.
Turn the spotlight,
The searchlight, inwards.
It is all available.
What we seek, we are;
Don't overlook it.
Neither too tight nor too loose,
Simply sustain present wakefulness
And clearly comprehend things
Just as they are.
Contentment is the ultimate form of wealth.
One ground, many paths.
Use the teflon side, not just the velcro side, of your mind.
Practice cling-free relationships
And cultivate dream-like practices,
And experience dream-like awakening.
Just seeing, recognizing, and releasing;
Simply experiencing, penetrating, and letting go/letting be -
Practice these three principles of natural freedom,
The art of nonattachment.
Seeing things as they are,
Not as you are,
Is clear vision and insightful wisdom.
No need to try to get into the flow;
The great tao flows right through you.
What we seek is right here;
We are usually elsewhere.
We are all Buddhas by nature;
We only have to recognize that fact,
Thus awakening to who and what we are.
Sleeping Buddhas, awaken -
Throw off your chains, your concepts and hang ups.
Seeing thru yourself, seeing Buddha, being Buddha.
Embrace the marvelous neurotikaya,
Come home and find
and be free"
As your read this poem, enter into it, allow it to resonate within you...return to it as needed during the rest of the attunement process,
OM MANI PADME
The Jewel in the Lotus - The Mantra of Compassion
This is the highest Mantra for mankind
gifted to us by the thousand Buddhas
out of their compassion
for all sentient beings.
It will protect us from all harm ,
sufferings , ill health , hell regions,
It will purify us and free us from all our negative
emotions of the Mind and speech and through
this Mantra we receive the blessings
of the wisdom Mind of Arya Avalokiteshvara
who is also known as Kuan Yin Pu Sa.
Every time we say Om Mani Padme Hum ,
we invoke the Divine Powers of Avalokiteshvara ,
who has infinite compassion and who
out of his infinite compassion
made a noble pledge to Buddha Amitabh
that he will liberate all sentient beings
from the six realms of sufferings.
Each syllable in this six syllable Mantra liberates us
from one realm of suffering out of each of the six realms
of suffering filled existence.
The mantra OM MANI PADME HUM
purifies us at 3 levels -
Mind, Speech and Body
and in this way liberates us
from all our negative karmas.
Within a short time of meditating on this Mantra ,
you will experience the opening and development of your
heart chakra and begin to feel highly kind and compassionate
towards other sentient beings including animals ,
even the tiny helpless ones .
You will develop a magnetic aura around you that will draw
other people towards you , attracting them like a magnet
attracts iron filings and love wll begin to flow in your Life.
Saying this mantra will energize and
develop your Heart Chakra and .....
when the Heart and Mind become united ,
anything is possible.
This Mantra is popularly known as
" The Jewel in the Lotus "
" The Diamond in the Lotus "
( "mani" means Diamond , a precious jewel
and Padma means Lotus flower which is the
spiritual symbol of consciousness )
The Jewel refers to the Mind or consciousness and
the Lotus refers to the Heart that is the source of Love energy
The meaning of OM MANI PADME HUM is
"Om , salutations to the Jewel of consciousness (the Mind)
which has reached the Heart's"
The mantra is in Sanskirt and is viewed from left to right as a symbol as you say or chant it. On the Internet you can listen to hear it's pronunciation or a chant form that you may like to use.
3) Attunement Process:
On the left is the Symbol to use for the attunement ....the Lotus Flower & the mantra written in Sanskirt. When saying the mantra use OM MANI PADME HUM either spoken or chanted.
Until you feel comfortable in intuitively sensing if a chakra is blocked or needs extra work...I suggest you start with using the Chakra Test....just click on the live text & it will take you to a very helpful website that contains the Chakra Test which will help you find the chakras that may need extra work, as well as other ideas on how to open chakras & work with them.
We will be using all 7 Chakras (energy centers in the body) & the colors connected with each chakra. On the left you will see the general areas of the chakras...we will start at the bottom/root chakra area.
See the symbol in chakra area.... imagine the lotus first as a pod & gradually opening to full bloom in the same color as the chakra area. Say/Chant the Mantra to help clear & balance this chakra. If you feel coldness or sluggishness in this area, it means there maybe a blockage in this chakra. You may need to repeat the symbol & the mantra a number of times until to feel the energy flow freely & there is a lightness in this area. When this occurs move up into the next chakra and repeat the process each time.
When you reach the crown chakra and it has cleared imagine to opened violet Lotus Flower turning into white bright light and float upward into the sky.
4) Practice Period:
For 7 days do the attunement process once daily. Remember to make sure each chakra area is cleared and balanced before you move on to the next one. If you experience any blockage repeat placing the symbol in the chakra area & using the mantra until a regular flow of energy returns. You may find blockage in different areas on different days...ultimately after 7 days all your chakras will all be cleared, balanced and the energy flowing well within you.
5) Working with Others:
You may wish to return to the Charka Test website in working with a new person until you become familiar with their blocked chakras.
Make sure to use the Lotus Jewel Energy first on yourself before starting to work on others....it is best to start with cleared & balanced chakras within you first in order to shielding yourself from any blockages you may encounter when working with others.
When working on others, you can place your hands above the chakra area on the person you are working on to better help focus the energy & both your attention. Start at the root chakra and have the person say the mantra with you when working on a chakra area. You alone will be placing the symbol in the area & seeing the Lotus in the color of the chakra gradually opening as well as the sanskirt mantra. If there is blockage have the person say the mantra with you until you feel a release in the area & the energy flows. Work slowly up the 7 chakras as you clear & balance each area. When finishing the crown chakra, allow the person to remain silent for a few moments & then allow them to have a drink of water to fully grounded before they get back up to standing & the rest of their day.
If this Energy resonates well with you, please also check out the Mantra Mudra Energy Attunement under Regular Attunements or Reiki Rainbows under Self Attunements.
May the Lotus Jewel Energy assist you on your spiritual path towards enlightenment & aid you in assisting others to reach that same goal!
