WHAT'S YOUR FLOWER?

Some of you may remember when it was popular when you met new people.to say "What's your sign"...it was a leftover from the experiential 60's but has faded now that it's impolite to get too personal. But on that same theme, "What's your flower?" Astrology was and is interesting but flowers are an overlooked folk medicine that can rescue us from what ails us. A lot of you may know the story about the Tibetan refugee in Seattle who had cancer and healed himself by sitting 'downwind from flowers', an old Tibetan folk therapy. The first time I read his story it deeply touched me...that Nature Intelligence had given us such a simple way to heal ourselves. It totally changed how I see flowers. I always appreciated their beauty but now I sense their living vitality, their aura of energy they exude. If you don't have flowers where you live but know your flower then you could begin working with that. Find a picture, buy the essence, oils, buy a scented candle, perfume, incense, sachets, creams, pillow and even cook with it should it be edible. You can wear the flower color and paint your room or private space or even have fake flowers-all that and more can connect you and dedicates your intent. If you get into it (intuit) enough you may begin to work with the Deva of your flower as well. Perhaps you have your flower as a house plant or it grows in your garden? If so then you may already be benefiting from the healing power. My flower is Lavender. What's yours?
