women's awakening lotus earrings featuring a bronze lotus on brass. the lotus flower carries many meanings, as it grows in muddy water, rising and blooming above its environment. for yogis, it is a symbol of rising kundalini, activation of energy centers or chakras, the work and dedication it takes once the journey of awakening begins, compassion and understanding, and finally, enlightenment and realization. for buddhists, the lotus flower represents the rising and blooming above our environment to achieve enlightenment, the faith and purification needed upon the journey, the ability to see past wrongs, and compassion for all sentient beings. ultimately, it is a symbol of the many petaled lotus of the crown chakra, awakening to the perfection of self, and serves as a reminder of love, compassion, and true wisdom.
