Lotus (Water Lily) Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Lotus (Water Lily) Dream Symbol – Dreaming of the lotus symbolizes spiritual enlightenment and growth, innocence, and beauty. It serves as a bright light in hard times. The lotus flower is a symbol of hope. Seeing the lotus flower brings courage to help you deal with hard challenges. It can also be a reminder to be humbler.

There is a lot of wisdom around you. It may be wise to stop and listen. Instead of always being the first to have all the answers. This may be a time you need to focus more on your inner growth to help you through your current challenges.

It can also mean you need to take action to support your true beliefs. A blue lotus flower indicates you need to listen more to your intuition. For it holds the answers.

Listening to your head over your heart may lead to more disharmony around you. Purple lotus flowers refer to the opening of your spirituality and compassion to the world. A red lotus flower represents your heart, and the compassion and love you show the world. Green lotus flowers are a unique gift and symbolize new beginnings. Rebirth from the old into a new way forward. The world is all you can make it to be.

With the lotus opening its petals to the world during the day and closing them again at night, this makes them unique in many ways. While they live in muddy ponds they manage to stay pure and innocent. Pink lotus flowers represent your heart. Your deepest emotions. Your heart’s desires.

Then he picked two figs that were barley ripe and I had a huge ripe fig in my hand. He gave a man one fig, then he sat next to me and smiled as if waiting for me to take the first bite. I felt honored and quickly bit into the fig. I knew he was Buddha.
