The lotus flower is central to one of the Egyptian creation stories where the lotus flower gave birth to the sun. A lotus flower emerged from the great darkness. From within the lotus flower came the divine child Re, the sun. The petals opened and Re cast his brilliant light.
Thus it can be seen that wearing or having near you a symbol of the lotus flower is a symbol of rebirth and faith in the beauty and perfection of creation. The symbol can be used during times when you wish to encourage new life and miraculous new growth in your life.
