Explore the healing power of flowers.
Flowers soothe the emotional body.
Think about it. Flowers have been used for centuries to lift someone’s spirits when they’re sad, bring comfort to the grieving and celebrate joyful milestones in life. But flowers are actually healing allies and most people do not know how powerful they are when they show up in our lives.
When I think of my Dad’s funeral, I think of white orchids. I remember the first flower my husband gave me on our first date and I think of tuberose when I remember our wedding. Humans have always instinctively known that flowers support emotional well-being. Now, we have more of an understanding about how these powerful plant spirits tend and soothe our emotional bodies.
Our emotional body is also known as the second level of the human energy field. You can connect spiritually to a flower without ingesting it. There are several empowering ways to spiritually connect with a plant.
How to make a spiritual connection with a plant:
Simply sit in meditation with the plant near you
Place the physical representation of the plant on your altar
Take the essence of a plant before you meditate
Participate in a guided shamanic plant journey meditation.

Flower Essences: Energy Work in a Bottle
“The subject of Flower Essences has many people confused. Some think it is a perfume or fragrance of a flower that they taste when they take it, others think it is old fashioned flower water. Neither is true…
Flower essences were originally discovered more than a hundred years ago by English doctor and homeopath, Dr. Edward Bach. He used them to heal himself and the culmination of his work was the creation of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies.
The definition of a Flower Essence is when the vibrational energy of a flower is captured in pure spring water during morning sunlight, or sometimes in moonlight. The water becomes a carrier of the flowers’ energy. Flower Essences cleanse the psycho toxins of negativity out of our spiritual metabolism, reestablishing resonance with our inner voice.”-Debbie Delany, Romany Botanicals https://www.romanybotanicals.com
Making a homemade flower essence should be a fun, empowering activity to support your journey into herbs traditionally used for self-care and ritual. Flower essences are strengtheners of our own soul forces, enabling us to learn and grow from life’s challenges. They are not a quick fix. Flowers are wonderful plant allies, inviting us on a transformative journey, and can be our guides along the way.
