The Greeks associated their meaning with birth and motherhood and in medieval times, they symbolized fertility and feminine sexuality. Lilies are popular flowers at weddings. They say dreaming of lilies in springtime brings happiness, prosperity, and marriage. Lilies can be used to balance your Crown Chakra, clear negativity from your home, help you focus, and a single flower can be used when meditating. These sophisticated and glamorous blooms have a fragrant scent.
In the Lenormand, the Lilies represent calm, maturity, peace, purity, sexuality, and passion depending on the cards around it. For me, these fragrant flowers were a gift from my daughter and grandson. I chose one from the bouquet to put in this crystal vase on my deck.
The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat’ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright. – William Blake
