Are you having trouble activating, cultivating or opening your third eye?
In this day and age theres more emphasis on work, school and all the millions of things to do. We as a society have dulled our innate ability to access or fully use our 3rd eye.
The Lotus Flower! Thats right! not only is the lotus flower a revered symbol in many cultures, its also a powerful herbal medicine.
According to many archaeologists the ancient Egyptians used the Egyptian Blue Lily of the Nile or Blue lotus as their #1 Entheogen (a chemical substance, typically of plant origin, that is ingested to produce a non-ordinary state of consciousness for religious or spiritual purposes.) Its Latin name is Nympheae caerulea. The flower was extracted in various forms (Including wine) and consumed during special ceremonies, in acts of debauchery, orgiastic behaviors and intricate spiritual rituals! (You can find dried blue lotus flowers here!)
To this day Tibetan Buddhist Monks use a secret recipe of a strong extract containing several different species of lotus blossoms called “Three Lotus Paste”. The recipe includes Sacred Pink Lotus, White Lotus and Blue Lotus. Though the way the lotus paste is extracted is a heavily guarded secret, the lotus paste comes in handy for these monks during very specific meditation practices.
This makes you wonder, if its such a holy symbol found throughout history and the whole plant has a diverse amount of uses, that this may be a very magical plant indeed! Whether from ancient times or modern society this herb has played an important role in the evolution of consciousness throughout time.
The continuous rise to faultless immaculate beauty from a miry muddy dark environment is one of the most common analogies comparing the lotus to the evolution of consciousness, from instinctive impulses, unconscious behaviors to spiritual liberation and freedom. From the acknowledgement of darkness comes true pure unadulterated spiritual energy.
The medicinal properties of the lotus flowers aforementioned include: Sedative(sedating), Hypnotic(Causes sleepyness), Relaxant(relaxation), Cardio-tonic(Strengthens and tonifies the heart), Nutritive(contains nutritious elements), Aphrodisiac(In larger amounts it increases sexual stimulation) and is mildly psychoactive.
What many people are increasingly finding is that this herb has the ability to sky rocket 3rd eye activity. Whether your a seasoned yoga practitioner, into meditating, developing your visionary skills or just simply learning something new this flower can help aid you in activating, opening, cultivating and enhancing your 3rd eye activity.
The question is now “How can I use this gorgeous plant medicine?”
There are several ways in which the plant can be used.
For third eye activity the flower is consumed as a tea, tincture or powdered extract.
The tea is made by simply steeping 2 tsp of the dried flowers in 2 cups of hot water for 3-5 minutes, strain and enjoy! It has a fragrant earthy taste so add some honey if you need to.
Another way to use the flower is in tincture form. A tincture is an liquid extract of the flower usually containing alcohol and water. Tinctures are easy to use and can be taken almost anywhere. Just squeeze the dropper top and put it into your mouth, add to water or your favorite juice! (You can find a very special tincture here!)
It is widely known that soaking lotus flowers in wine can be used as a strong aphrodisiac for both men and women alike.
Also I’d Like to mention that using this herb isn’t a crutch for any whom wish to utilize it. This flower is but a catalyst for your awakening as an individual, its a guiding energy to help you along the way, while you understand how to reclaim the power of your beautiful trans-dimensional 3rd eye.
Whether your looking to have mystical experiences, an awakening, become enlightened, have more clairvoyant perception, increase your dreaming, creativity and reach higher states of consciousness Blue Lotus may just be what you need to reclaim the power you have within!
