behind the scenes … on my desk
Archetypes and symbolism are important to me in achieving my life’s purpose, thus at my desk I surround myself with various reminders of why I do what I do.
Here are my thoughts of this delightful little figurine of the Chinese Guanyin / Kuan Yin (short for Kuan-Shi-Yin) “she who hears the cries of the world”.
She is associated with compassion, mercy, kindness, empathy, forgiveness, and wisdom. She holds a vessel of knowledge in her open hands. She also sits on a lotus flower known to rise through and above dark murky waters into radiant light.
Why is Kuan Yin an important archetype for me? Well, my mission is to bring sunshine, joy, healing and flourishing to those who are willing to rise above mental health issues invariably due to past trauma, especially also sexual abuse trauma.
I am a wounded healer myself (not just someone with two psychology degrees) who worked hard to now bring healing, especially to my sisters.
Traditional talking therapy, did not give me the results, thus my work integrates western and eastern healing arts modalities, a more modern holistic Energy Psychology as well as the powerful way that therapeutic pure essential oils offer to support the healing and thriving process.
Which brings me to the third picture, showing a blend that again means a lot to me to support my “Why!” I am doing what I am doing”.
The blend contains 10 essential oils and is called, “Magnify Your Purpose”.
It helps bring commitment to purpose and manifestation to your intention.
It was created to stimulate creativity, desire and focus.
The blend gently encourages, motivates, and protects us from negative emotions, and supports us in moving forward into our life purpose.
It helps energy to flow to the right hemisphere of the brain, which is the intuitive and creative side.
The blend is expertly crafted with ‘Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Nutmeg, Ginger, Patchouli, Sage, Cinnamon Bark, Coriander, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, and Geranium.
