Yesterday the White Lotus in the Lichenwood Koi Pond began to open in a perfect Chalice of divine white light. The flower held its petals protectively around the forming seed pod.
This seed pod holds more seeds than any of the Lotus plants I have worked with previously. The energy of this particular Lotus is one of absolute purity of spirit, love of the highest order. It is a living prayer.
Today is the peak of the bloom of this sacred flower. All is hushed and reverent in the surrounding area. It is hot today. Dragonflies and Butterflies float and soar over the pond and gardens. I have set a bowl to catch the energy of the White Lotus. I never know how the process will unfold. Especially when I feel certain that the flower is not to be cut from its stem. Other Lotus plants have offered petals, or communicated firmly that I was to take the flower and place it in the bowl. White Lotus asked that the water from the bowl be poured over the flower in blessing and then caught, cascading into the bowl from the blossom. I then placed the bowl inside the Genesa crystal with the intention that only the White Lotus energy enter the bowl.
This process is ongoing as I blog. We are at the height of day.
The White Lotus continues to radiate its brilliance in perfection of a cloudless Lughnassadh sky. I am reminded of a favorite chant, "I am whole. I am filled with light."
