Pick More Flowers
Nature’s gifts can heal you.

A lesson in flower therapy.
Flowers are very real, physical displays of love from God and the angels. Upon asking the angels about flowers, we were told, “Flowers are beautiful gifts from the Creator to help you in your times of need. They can help you heal very deep emotional issues and release unhealthy habits. When you trust in your inner voice and the Divine guidance that we’re constantly with you, nothing can go wrong.” Nature is here to help you, and you have to open your heart to receiving.
We can liken the process of choosing flowers to choosing produce at the grocery store. Trust your gut and go with the choice that feels right to you. There’s no such thing as the “perfect flower.” Flowers are unique; just like snowflakes, you’ll never find two that are identical. Remind yourself that every flower is going to differ slightly from the next. Although you can find apples and oranges that look nearly identical at the supermarket, they were specifically bred to be this way as a means of seeking uniformity. The fruit that didn’t fit the standard form were discarded. But if you take a look at organic produce, each piece of fruit is slightly different. Some may have little marks or scratches, and others may not be quite as vibrantly colored or shiny.
Regardless of the external qualities, the energy of the food is going to be the same. (In fact, organic food, with its imperfect, more natural appearance may have higher nutritional value!) This rings true for flowers as well.
When searching for natural healing tools, you needn’t worry about finding a flower with the “perfect” color, shape, or number of petals. Instead, find one that matches the energy of your desire. There are many types of flowers that can best suit your current goals. Go in search of those that you’re drawn to.
Flowers come in all shapes and sizes and can vary dramatically even from stem to stem of the same plant. You may find a flower that your heart sings for, but when you look at it, perhaps the petals are marked or torn, or it may seem too small. However, you’ve found yourself mesmerized by this particular blossom. This is when you must trust your intuition and guidance by choosing this flower because it will be the perfect one for you, the missing piece of the puzzle you’ve been searching for.
