About Nadine Lucas

Rooted in Love

I believe that “Love heals.” This belief is a profound and widely acknowledged truth. Love, in all its various forms, has the power to bring about healing and transformation in multiple aspects of our lives, including emotional, psychological, and even physical well-being.

Self-love and self-compassion are forms of love that are directed inward. They involve treating oneself with kindness, acceptance, and care. These practices can lead to emotional healing, personal growth, and greater resilience in the face of life’s challenges.

Compassion based healing is an approach to therapy and personal growth that is rooted in love. It is based on the idea that in order to heal and recover people need to learn how to be compassionate, kind, and loving towards themselves.

About the Lotus and Why I Chose This Symbol for Recovery

The lotus is very special for me because I believe that I am a lotus blooming; my heart is opening, healing my “parts” by shedding it’s light and beauty on  them.

My Authentic Self is emerging from the mud and darkness of my own traumas. For  me, to be “enlightened” means “to bring light.” 

Marianne Williamson says in her book “A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles“, “It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

So goes on to say, “as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

I am committed to helping people liberate their fears and offering space to let folks shine! Let us work together to bring light to your trauma, allowing you to heal from the mud of sadness, shame, fear, grief, rage, and more.

Peace and blessings, Nadine

Buddhists liken the unfolding of the lotus petals to the unfolding of the divine within the human self.

The closed bloom represents the heart with its infinite potential for enlightenment;

The open blossom represents the enlightened self.

In Buddhism the lotus blossom represents a heart opening.

The lotus flower blooms on the surface of the water, with its roots, deep below the mud –

Making it a symbol of light and beauty emerging from the darkness.
