Gloriosa Lily Meaning Journaling Prayer

Gloriosa Lily Signifies the Source


Gloriosa Lily represents the source of life. It's curling spiral tendrils and climbing habit signify glory, fame and honor.

Covered with corkscrew curls desperate to climb, it's very nature suggests upward spiraling energy of the Creator. Flowers of dark red, bright pink, orange with saffron yellow represent the lower chakras, creative, grounded, safe, and strong.

Its long stamens at right angles to the petals appear to float ~ a metaphor for our relationship with the Creator. As a tuber that is both a member of the lily family which climbs as well, it is a botanical rarity.

Celebrate the Light, Gloriosa Lily.
