Blue Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) or blue lily is a flower that has had a majestic stretch of limelight back through thousands of years of history and across cultures as varied as the Egyptian, Mayan, Syrian and Thai.
It’s a flower of such beauty, intoxicating scent and inebriating effect that it has spread from culture to culture like a virtual wildfire.
And it has rightfully earned it place in the history books as one of the most wonderful and significant flowers.
Physically, it’s a small, round, blue, flowering species that floats atop lakes or other bodies of water. The flower buds rise to the surface over a period of two to three days. When they’re ready, they open in the morning around 9:30am and close in the early afternoon around 3:00pm
So in this article we’ll dive into everything you might want to know about this ancient sacrament and touch on how it can potentially aid our lucid dreaming practice.
