Nelumbo Nucifera Pink Lilly elixir

The Sacred Lotus from India 

 Nelumbo Nucifera is an Asiatic medicine known as 'Sacred Lotus' that is used in a variety of uses.
Powerful adaptogenic Entheo-botanical ~ mood elevating mind expanding, heart awakening for the NEW energies and shifts in 2017~ Are you prepared?

It has a delicate aroma, and of symbolic importance as well. Mostly adored for its mood enhancing properties and ability to activate the spiritual heart.

 Works very well alongside the Blue lilly (Nymphaea caerulea) from Egypt, there is a sacred 'marriage' between the 2 energies when consumed together that transcend the language of the physical and mental planes, directly to the emotional heart levels of communication.

 Nutritionally and biochemically high in polyphenolic compounds such as catechin and procyanidins and possesses very general healthy properties secondary to this. There are not too many studies on unique bioactives in Sacred Lotus, but these studies are centered on Neferine; a constituent which is unique to Nelumbo Nucifera.

 Most of the evidence currently is either using extracts of the plant itself which find benefits that include anti-depressant and sedative properties which are seemingly potent, and some anti-obesogenic and anti-diabetic properties. Some fat burning properties have been noted also. Symbolism and the elements:

The 4 elements that appear in the Sacred Lotus

 The Lotus embodies all four elements. The plant springs from the mud (Earth) and must be firmly rooted there. Water is necessary to sustain the plant and the stalks are hollow and filled with milky sap when growing. The leaves and flowers rise from the depths and are held above the water’s surface, representing Air. Also, the orientation of the leaves and flowers until they dry is upward, reaching into the air. The air spaces within the stems maintain buoyancy.

The flowers and leaves unfurl, representing transformation or Fire. The ancient Lotus seeds contain an enzyme called L-isoaspartyl methyltransferase which repairs proteins and may play a role in anti-aging. I read many reports of Lotus seeds dormant for 1800 years sprouting, and also of plants sprouting up from dry ponds after years without water.

More with regard to the spiritual meanings of Lotus. There is also a note about the alkaloid, nelumbine, present in the leaves, fruit stalks, and seeds which can affect the heart. No cases of adverse reactions have been documented. Long considered a very healthy food, Lotus contains high amounts of dietary fiber and low amounts of saturated fat.

 Lotus also contains vitamin C, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin B6, phosphorus, copper, and manganese. Plant pacifies vitiated pitta, urinary and cardiac system disorders, diarrhea, vomiting, burning sensation on the body, nervous exhaustion, skin diseases, urinary retention and general debility, recovery from serious illness or traumatic circumstances, supports in ongoing energy shifts and vibratory changes, electro magnetic fluctuations etc. Heart balancing and deeper insight/foresight into situations and events.

 The lotus is one of the world’s most celebrated flowers. From time immemorial to the present day, it has always been in folklore, religion and the arts in one form or the other. Apart from its majestic beauty, the Lotus is held sacred because of the mystical effects it can produce as create a feeling of jo
y that permeated the mind and body. The stamens (the male reproductive organ of a flower) can also be dried and made into a fragrant herbal tea (tea-like nectar drink made of leaves of various herbs)
