Come on a magical monthly journey with me, as we explore working with the consciousness of the beautiful blue lotus.
It truly is a magical flower, transformative and healing, as well brilliant for aiding lucid dreaming. We will also be working with the energy of the mighty Goddess Isis, as we experience this deep healing. "Blue Lotus is a psychoactive herb. It played an important role in ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman cultures. Though, its power as a sacred, mind-expanding herb seems to have been lost to time.
Only recently has Blue Lotus re-emerged, becoming a trusted ally of conscious explorers and active dreamers. However, it is the Blue Lotus flower that has captivated explorers of consciousness over the past 3,000 years. The Blue Lotus flower is a stunning and sublime sight. It’s deep blue and purple petals will hypnotise you. They float around bright yellow stamens and draw you into their otherworldly beauty.
The Blue Lotus flower can be seen depicted in carvings, hieroglyphics, and other artefacts in nearly every ancient temple. In fact, when Tutankhamun’s tomb was opened on November 29, 1922, the archeologists and historians present found actual dried blue lotus flowers and numerous artefacts related to blue lotus preserved with the pharaoh. The very fact that the ruler of the Egyptian people was buried in his sacred tomb with the Blue Lotus flower should give you a sense of just how important it was to the Ancient Egyptians.
"The ancient Egyptians were master alchemists and used Blue Lotus to create powerful potions used in transformative religious ceremonies." - Dream time Herbals.
This will be the first of my monthly journey's, and we will travel with a different plant each month, culminating in a plant retreat (working with the consciousness only!) in early November in Kent.
