For centuries, the lotus flower has been a symbol of growth and rebirth. It is considered to be a sacred flower across many cultures. Rising with the morning sun it rises from its muddy waters to bloom with unparalleled beauty. Once the sun has set it then submerges into the murky river and undaunted by its dark environment it miraculously re-blooms the next day.
Because of its behaviors the Egyptians associated it with rebirth, the Sun and creation. As the sun ascends in the morning so did the flower. The Egyptian book of the dead is known to include spells that can transform a person into a lotus flower, allowing them to be resurrected or reborn.
In Buddhism, the lotus flower is associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faith. As the flower resurfaces from its muddy river-bed clean and pure so do we move into our spiritual awakening born again.
Many people in western cultures wear lotus jewellery to signify spirituality, divine rebirth, purity and faith. Whatever the reason you chosen it usually has a relationship to a change of path in life or some kind or spiritual growth.
