About Flowers and Healing
Just as Reiki, Crystal and Stones, and other forms of holistic medicine heal through vibratory energy, healing with flowers is one of the oldest and purest forms of healing your body mind and spirit.
From the imperial sacred mountains of Tibet to ancient Egypt, flowers have been used to heal and thought to contain magical powers bestowed upon us by the gods. To modern day, Buddhists believe in the spiritual essence of healing by simply laying a flower on pure water in the light of the sun or moon. Buddha once said that if we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole lives would change.
Flowers provide natural color and aroma that brings harmony to the body mind and soul through therapeutic essence and relaxes our spirit. The color of flowers is as important as the aroma and beauty if gives. (see Crystal and Stone Healing for a list of colors and what they mean)
