I Want To Be Reminded of Purple Lilacs

 

 

 Why would I want to be reminded of Lilacs? What do they symbolize and do their colors have special meanings?

Actually, I did not know a lot about these beautiful flowers, and what they symbolize until a friend commented on a blog I wrote named, My Soulmate Love Forever.

In this blog, I spoke of the beauty of having a soulmate, a real deep, pure love. A love where we became so close to one another that we had grown like one strand of tightly woven yarn, having one heart and soul.  A love that has transcended through all time, all dimensions, and shared for eternity. A love that so connected that even after the death of my husband, it has not weakened but become ever strengthened growing more profound every day.

My beautiful friend sparked my interest by writing this in his comment:

 ...I spent quite a bit of time trying to integrate the most amazing thing, guardian angels, and the mysteries we experience while by ourselves...You may remember the April Stevens and Nino Tempo song "Deep Purple," well...a very dear friend started calling me Purple...and whenever I think of those people I love, well...my outlook goes to "all the shades of purple."

In keeping with the mysteries of Love you've shared, I suppose I wasn't meant to tell of my story at all, but only to help you remember why you want to be reminded of Lilacs. This, to me, would clear up a lot of mysteries as they relate to Love, and that would truly be one of the most amazing things ever, for me!

This is your story to tell Nancy, and you've titled your story well, maybe, just maybe one of your chapters is meant to be called "I Want To Be Reminded of Lilacs"? Write it Nancy, your "why" may allow the rest of us to want to be reminded, as well...

D.H.

After reading my friend's comment, I decided to research the meaning of Lilacs.  I learned that through the ages, Lilacs had a strong connection with Love and Romance.

The white Lilac represents innocence and purity of childhood.

Lighter shades of purple Lilacs are associated with love or the first time someone feels love for someone else.

Magenta, which is a dark shade of red Lilac, is associated with passion, love, and the sheer thrill of being alive.

Because lighter shades of purple Lilacs are associated with first loves, purple is often an alternative to black for mourning.

All shades of purple Lilacs tend to reflect spirituality, but dark purple Lilacs are thought to reflect knowledge of spiritual mysteries.

Is the pure deep love between soulmates having become one heart and soul, the true symbolic meaning given to darkest of purple Lilacs?  Does this soulmate love have energy so profoundly woven with each other that it creates an opening of knowledge of spiritual mysteries?

Today, science has revealed purple is the most powerful visible wavelength of electromagnetic energy. Purple is said to symbolize spirituality, magic, mystery, devotion, peace, creativity, dignity, royalty and brings to mind all of these meanings more than any other color.

Purple is a rare, occurring color in nature and often seen as having sacred meaning. Purple helps align ourselves with the whole universe.

The color purple with its powerful visible energy, the symbolic meanings of purple, the purple Lilac symbolic meaning of love, and the knowledge of spiritual mysteries may all explain the bond between soulmates. A relationship that does not end with one of their deaths but connects them for an eternity.

Thank you, my dear friend, for asking me to research and write this blog.  I will always remember and want reminders of Lilacs and their beautiful colors representing the stages of love.

Frank and I are soulmates,  the deepest of purple Lilacs, we are still very connected through magical energy, and  I thank God for that every day.

Even Prince knew about the Purple Rain and the magic of walking in the purple rain with a true love forever.
