Magnolia blossom–the healing flower

While I am getting excellent care for my concussion from my chiropractor and my medical doctor, who is trained in craniosacral bodywork, I realized the other day that I needed to participate more directly in my healing. In drawing a magnolia flower and meditating on its image, I came to understand that I needed to move the bones of my skull myself, not simply allow others to manipulate them. Studying the flower, the petals reminded me of the lobes of my cranium. By imagining this beautiful and majestic flower opening its petals in my head, I released tension and fear.  I felt my cranium expanding. I became aware of the back of my skull and even brought breath awareness there. Imagining the magnolia helped me feel positive about healing my injury. Here’s my picture, drawn with colored pencils:

  1. Wendy,
    The drawing is beautiful and a reminder that we are one with nature, repeating patterns and cycles in the universe. It seems like you released something healing in the creation of this Magnolia.

  3. Thank you, Irene. I love what you said about the “repeating patterns and cycles in the universe.” The drawing helped me release fear and find peace. Every day, I go outside and smell one of the magnolia blossoms on the tree out front. A smell like no other–so healing.
