I dreamed of a lotus ship again.
They hummmm their gentle song here on Earth with a little sprinkle of star dust.
For every Lotus Ship I post on my dreamcatcher, I will share a little something special from my Dream Transmission Concept Book that I'm working on.
“On the surface of the sun is a network of celestial languages. In these pools of formulating vibrations nest the messengers of the star angels. Finding the right messenger is the tricky part because they find you. When on the surface explore the arts of the blue sun. There are many layers to the sun traveling through them requires the Lotus Ship to grow new water orbs of memory. Your tears are the memory.“
There is a certain parallel between the symbolism of the lotus and that
of the rose in Western culture. In Egypt, the lotus symbolizes nascent life, or first
appearance (19). Saunier regards it as a natural symbol for all forms of evolution
(49). In the Middle Ages it was equated with the mystic ‘Centre’ and, consequently, with the heart (56, 14). As an artistic creation it is related to the mandala,
its significance varying according to the number of its petals: the eight-petalled
lotus-is considered in India as the Centre where Brahma dwells and as the visible
manifestation of his occult activity (26). The figure eight is like the mandorla of
Romanesque art, signifying the intersection of the earth (four, or the square) with
heaven (the circle). The ‘thousand-petalled’ lotus symbolizes the final revelation;
in the centre there is usually a triangle and inside the triangle is the ‘great emptiness’ symbolic of formlessness. René Guénon has examined lotus-symbolism at
great length, observing that The potentialities of being are realized by means of an
activity which is always internal’ (this is the ‘growth’ of Father Gratry) ‘since it
is exercised from the centre of each plane; furthermore, from the metaphysical
point of view, it is impossible for external action to be brought to bear upon the
total being, for such action is possible only on a relative and a particular plane. .
This realization of potentialities is depicted in various symbolisms as the . .
unfolding of a flower on the surface of the “waters”; generally, in oriental traditions, it is a lotus, and a rose or lis in the West. There is a further relationship
between these flowers and the circumference as a symbol of the manifest world,
as well as with the cosmic Wheel. This symbol finds other forms of expression in
many different ways, but always related to the symbolism of numbers, that is,
depending upon the number of petals’ (25). From the remotest days of antiquity,
the lotus was the unanimous choice of the Chinese, the Japanese, the Hindus, the
Egyptians and the Aryans. The lotus flower growing out of the navel of Vishnu,
symbolizes the universe growing out of the central sun—the central point or the
‘unmoved mover’. It is the attribute of many deities (9). In lotus symbolism, the
idea of emanation and of realization predominated over that of the hidden Centre,
which is a Western accretion.
To see a lotus in your dream, represents enlightenment, growth, purity, beauty and expansion of the soul. The image of the lotus serves as encouragement and provides hope in dark and murky times.

On coins, a ship ploughing through the seas is emblematic of joy and
happiness (8). But the most profound significance of navigation is that implied
by Pompey the Great in his remark: ‘Living is not necessary, but navigation is.’
By this he meant that existence is split up into two fundamental structures:
living, which he understood as living for or in oneself, and sailing or navigating, by
which he understood living in order to transcend—or what Nietzsche from his
pessimistic angle called ‘living in order to disappear’. The Odyssey is, basically,
nothing but a navigation-myth in the sense of victory over the two essential perils
of all sailing: destruction (or the triumph of the ocean—corresponding to the
unconscious) and withdrawal (regression or stagnation). Yet Homer reserves the
end of the periplus of Odysseus for a triumphant but affectionate ‘return’ to his
wife, his hearth and home. This is a mystic idea analogous to the mystery of the
‘fall’ of the soul into the material plane of existence (by the process of involution)
and to the necessity of its returning to the starting-point (evolution)—a mystery
which has been expounded by Platonic idealism and by Plotinus in particular.
This law of the returning soul corresponds to the belief in the concept of a
‘closed’ universe (like that of the Eternal Return) or the conception of all phenomena as a cyclic organization. Navigation, as envisaged in any philosophy of
the absolute, would deny even the hero his triumphant return to the homeland
and would make of him a perpetual explorer of oceans, under endless skies. But to come back to the symbolism of the ship, every vessel corresponds to a constellation (48). The ship-symbol has been related to the holy island, in so far as both
are differentiated from the amorphous and hostile sea. If the waters of the oceans
are symbolic of the unconscious, they also can allude to the dull roar of the
outside world. The notion that it is essential first to learn to sail the sea of the
passions in order to reach the Mountain of Salvation is the same as the idea
mentioned earlier in connexion with the perils of exploring the oceans. For this
reason Guénon suggests that ‘the attainment of the Great Peace is depicted in the
form of sailing the seas’; hence, in Christian symbolism, the ship represents the
Church (28). Some of the less clearly defined aspects of the symbolism of the
ship—comparable here with the small boat and the carriage—are related to symbols of the human body and of all physical bodies or vehicles; in addition to this,
there is a cosmic implication deriving from the age-old comparison between the
sun and the moon on the one hand, and, on the other, two ships floating upon the
celestial ocean. The solar ship frequently appears on Egyptian monuments. In
Assyrian art, too, ships shaped like cups are clearly solar in character; this cupshape narrows down still further the scope of the meaning (35). Another meaning,
sometimes quite independent of the foregoing, derives not so much from the idea
of the ship as such but rather from the notion of sailing; this is the symbolism of
the Ship-of-Death. Hence, many primitive peoples place ships on the end of a
pole or on the roof of a house. On occasion, it is the roof itself (of the temple or
house) which is made to resemble a ship. Always the implication is the desire to
transcend existence—to travel through space to the other worlds. All these forms,
then, represent the axis valley-mountain, or the symbolism of verticality and the
idea of height. An obvious association here is with all the symbols for the worldaxis. The mast in the centre of the vessel gives expression to the idea of the
Cosmic Tree incorporated within the symbolism of the Ship-of-Death or ‘Ship of
If you have a ship of your own sailing on the sea, it indicates advancement in riches. A
ship that is tossed in the ocean and about to sink indicates disaster in life.

As a light shining in the darkness, the star is a symbol of the spirit.
Bayley has pointed out, however, that the star very rarely carries a single meaning—it nearly always alludes to multiplicity. In which case it stands for the forces
of the spirit struggling against the forces of darkness. This is a meaning which has
been incorporated into emblematic art all over the world (4). For this reason,
‘identification with the star’ is possible only to the chosen few. Jung recalls the
Mithraic saying: ‘I am a star which goes with thee and shines out of the depths’
(31). Now, individual stars are often seen in graphic symbolism. Their meaning frequently depends upon their shape, the number of points, the manner of their
arrangement, and their colour (if any). The ‘flaming star’ is a symbol of the mystic
Centre—of the force of the universe in expansion (4). The five-pointed star is the
most common. As far back as in the days of Egyptian hieroglyphics it signified
‘rising upwards towards the point of origin’, and formed part of such words as
‘to bring up’, ‘to educate’, ‘the teacher’, etc. (19). The inverted five-pointed star
is a symbol of the infernal as used in black magic (37).
Being nocturnal, their symbolism is associated with that of night; they
are also linked with the idea of multiplicity (or with disintegration) because they
appear in clusters, and with order and destiny because of their disposition and
location (according to Horapollo Niliacus).
Seeing stars in your dream, symbolize high ideals, spirit, fate and luck. It also means your desire for fame and fortune.
