Can Flowers Heal You?
7 common varieties speak!
Published: July 31, 2012
Mother Nature is a healer, and one of her most powerful gifts comes in the form of flowers. Each variety has a different “personality” to promote physical and emotional wellness. As Heaven’s masterpieces, flowers are Divine vessels of healing, and Flower Therapy is a method of working with different blossoms—based upon their appearance, fragrance, essence, colors, and energies—to address specific needs and desires.
Flower Therapy involves working closely with nature, including the fairies and angels. Fairies make wonderful allies, as they can help you manifest your heart’s desires. When you work with flowers, you automatically access fairy energy. Angels are also associated with each flower. Angels are our loving friends, involved in every aspect of our lives, and present throughout the planet. They are filled with joy when they see us utilizing God’s healing gifts through working with nature.
Flower Therapy is based upon nature’s healing abilities, similar to naturopathic medicine. Like the herbal treatments in naturopathic medicine, flowers can be used to create potent healing effects.
Since the fragrance and colors of flowers extend into the energetic realm, Flower Therapy helps with metaphysical issues. It can deepen your spiritual practice and open your psychic abilities.
Whether you’re working with flowers in your own garden, or specially purchased to heal a specific situation, they will bring more emotional, physical, and spiritual beauty into your life.
Here are 7 of the most common flowers and their healing properties:
