The Blue Lotus :: Egypt's most Sacred Flower since ancient times.
For Egyptians, the Blue Lotus represents death & rebirth as it raises out of the water & blooms with sunrise & then submerges again at sunset, continuing in this pattern of the cycle of the sun. It is highly medicinal with hallucinogenic properties & supports spiritual ascension & enlightenment through the cycle of death & resurrection. It is also used in aromatherapy & has an intoxicating fragrance. The Blue Lotus is now an endangered plant.
I will be sharing more photos of my visit to Egypt in my stories rather than my timeline, so be sure to check them out. Also, follow @thebluecairo for gorgeous photos of Cairo.
