The Lotus Flower: The Symbol of Lotus Bluum
At Lotus Bluum, we believe that the Universe is always communicating with us. There are so many ways to receive guidance and messages as we go about our journeys and understanding the symbolism in them makes this life more fun and expansive. For example, many people associate finding a four leaf clover with good luck, or seeing a red bird means a departed loved one is saying hello. Everything has meaning. Everything has a message. Everyone has some association of meaning to things, whether it is butterflies, dragonflies, lady bugs, yellow flowers, etc.... We all have connections to something.
It is our desire to create an environment and offer services and products that can reconnect you to, lead you back to or even help you establish your own sense of Joy and Well Being in Life. The Lotus Flower itself is a magical flower and we are awed by it's energy and stunning display of beauty.
The Lotus Flower is a symbol of rising up from the depths of the mud to transition into the light.
A prominent figure in Buddhist and Egyptian culture, and native flower for both India and Vietnam, the lotus holds enormous symbolic weight. It spans various thousand-year-old Eastern cultures and yet, is still considered one of the most sacred flowers today. So what is it about this mysterious blossom that people find so enrapturing? Its colorful bloom is an obvious suspect, but the lotus also has a life cycle unlike any other. With its roots based in mud, it submerges every night into murky river water, and—undeterred by its dirty environment—it miraculously re-blooms the next morning without residue on its petals.
For more info and guidance on symbolism:
Ted Andrews has a great book out for purchase called, "Animal Speak" in which he helps us understand the messages our animal friends, spirit animals and totems bear.
Melissa Alvarez has a brand new book out called, "Animal Frequency".
And interestingly, Dream Moods is a good place to check for symbolic meanings as well, even when those symbols present themselves in the light of day while our eyes are wide open.
