The Lotus Heart Collection
 


The lotus flower has long been a symbol of divinity, enlightenment, and higher consciousness in Asian cultures. It is often associated with Buddhism, but the lotus symbol is of even older origins.

In ancient Egypt the blue lotus that grew along the banks of the Nile was associated with the sun and the powers of creation and rebirth. The lotus design graced the ancient temples of Egypt and was often depicted in art and song.

Throughout China’s long history the lotus is often portrayed in art and praised in poetry as an inspirational symbol of perseverance and overcoming difficulties. The lotus is rooted in the mud at the bottom of the lake, but it rises through the murky water high into the brilliant sunlight.

In both ancient and modern India the beautiful pink lotus has long been associated with divinity. Various Hindu gods and goddesses are frequently depicted seated on a stylized lotus flower. The deeper meaning of the lotus symbol is awakening to the reality of the spiritual nature of life. It depicts our awakening from primal instincts and rising to a higher consciousness, just as the beautiful lotus flower arises from the mud to the heavens.

In Buddhism the lotus is the symbol of enlightenment based on the well-known earlier concepts of the lotus rising high from the muddy water into the light. It is in Buddhist art and literature that the symbol of the graceful lotus is the most refined. The heart of a person who has not reached the state of enlightenment is depicted as a lotus bud, the flower itself not yet opened to the light. The opened flower represents the enlightened heart and mind of the seeker.

The colors of the lotus flower symbols themselves also have great significance:

  • White lotus = peace and serenity

  • Pink lotus = enlightenment and the Buddha

  • Red lotus = love and compassion for all beings

  • Golden lotus = higher realms and worlds beyond this one

  • Blue lotus = wisdom

The Lotus Heart Collection arose from the original Lotus Heart amulet I made for myself some years ago. In the past several months a series of dreams prompted me to create the Lotus Heart amulets in a variety of color combinations, each with its own unique subtle energy.

I use the classic lotus flower pattern that evokes a higher state of awareness. The amulets are symbols of peace, healing, compassion, and wisdom. They are one-of-a-kind creations that help bring serenity and light into the world. If you find that one of the Lotus Heart amulets speaks to you, then you just might be the person it was created for.
