The Blue Rose Within

January 25, 2014

As touched on in a March, 2011 post: “New View on Rennes-le-Château,” a blue rose, like a blue apple, generally symbolizes an unfathomable mystery; an impossible dream; attainment of an impossible goal; anything that lies beyond complete understanding via ordinary thinking. Because a rose may, through various means, be manipulated to appear blue, the blue rose can also symbolize deception. Through application of the Noetitek™ system, our perception of blue rose symbolism is able to be even further expanded, and such expansion not only extends elucidation of blue rose symbolism but also opens doors to a better understanding of associated correspondences because everything is rooted in the underlying core principles of Omniverse. 

For example, consider the chakras of the human body. The chakras (energy centers) are often imagined and depicted as flowers, as mentioned in a September, 2013 post: “Clarifying Cleromancy,” where dilation of a chakra was compared to the opening of a flower. In Hinduism, the flowers representing chakras are lotuses with varying numbers of petals. Among ancient Egyptians the blue lotus was associated with the Sun and with rebirth, and in the Buddhist faith blue lotuses symbolize victory of the spirit—immortality in both cultures. At least one European alchemical artwork, reproduced for publication in 1760, portrays the chakras as a series of “igneous” roses because the chakras were perceived as fueled by sacred fire. To some degree the rose and lotus are interchangeable as symbols in that both symbolize spiritual connection. 

Chakras are mentioned in numerous earlier posts, such as a May, 2010 post: “Abraca-Chakra” and a related comment I subsequently made under the February, 2009 post: “Human Gland-Related Discoveries.” Those posts revealed my finding that there are nine central-axis chakras and that each is associated with a particular endocrine gland. The fourth and fifth chakras form a binary heart chakra that serves as transceiver between body and spirit, between the earthly and the etheric. I call the fifth chakra—positioned at the middle of the nine—the blue-rose chakra because a rose has five petals and this one, in the fifth position, corresponds to the color blue. This blue rose is at the core of everyone, the guidance center, the vibrational CPU, where magnetism of desire meets accompanying life-force to synchronously create and perceive. 

The seven main chakras of Shakta Theory—and of older esoteric Indian tradition—may be most significant with respect to our worldly presence and functioning, yet I know by experience (gnosis) that two additional central-axis chakras exist. Along with that I also know that the positioning of the popularized seven is not entirely as ordinarily believed (see “Abraca-Chakra”). It has been suggested to me that some individuals may not possess all nine chakras, or that these chakras might not have existed in earlier generations. My explanation is this: that many people have not activated the uppermost chakra or the hidden heart-related chakra to the point that these chakras are easily detectable. Some bio-energy researchers have actually seen nine, so I am not alone in making that count. 

I see the essence of the foregoing reflected exquisitely in “The Blue Rose,” one of the lesser-known writings of prolific English author Maurice Baring (1874-1945). His inspiration is unknown to me—perhaps it was out-of-the-blue intuition or special-delivered by a Muse—but when the meaning of that tale is understood “in the heart,” Baring’s little story becomes less of a blue rose itself and offers insights about perception worth taking time to ponder. “The Blue Rose” is found in The Blue Rose Fairy Book which can be downloaded for free at Amazon.com in Kindle e-book format.
