Everyone loves picking, sending, buying and receiving flowers.
There is something about this gift from nature that expresses the perfect sentiment whilst stimulating our sensory organs with their pretty appearance and alluring scent.
We send flowers to people we love on special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, when they get a new job or give birth to a baby.
We also send them to people in mourning, so there is literally a flower for every occasion and each one represents something different and unique.
Some people like to buy their own blooms and display them in their homes, but did you know that the seemingly unimportant bunch of red carnations on the hall table of your friend’s home actually has an important and empowering meaning? The bold intense colour red represents strength, while carnations symbolise commitment, so your friend could actually be intentionally energising herself with her choice of bouquet.
Certain types of flowers and their colours can enhance your energy levels and people have channelled cosmic energy from plant life since time began. Plants and flowers are symbolic of the earth’s power and the beautiful and spirited daisy, for example, represents joyful innocence and can evoke a sense of fun and happiness.
The freesia is a superb choice of flower as it exudes positive energy to everyone around it. To give someone freesias will be sure to give them an energy boost and having them around you in your house will do wonders for your outlook on life and your approach to day-to-day activities.
As well as introducing freshly cut flowers into your home, you may also want to consider house plants – especially those which contain thick stems or an abundance of wood. This material represents growth and wealth as well as the new beginnings associated with spring.
It’s important to have fresh flowers in your home, particularly in your living room to promote and encourage positive energy throughout your abode and be sure to throw them out when they die as dead flowers in a vase is a depressing sight and one that exudes feelings of neglect, despair and negativity.
Why don’t you channel some of that positive energy into the workplace by bringing in flowers or a plant? House plants promote business growth and brighten any work space and apparently where you place them has meaning too. Place plants in the east, south or southeast corners of your office to attract good luck.
Choose colours like red which is a powerful, energy-filled colour, associated with life and vitality; yellow builds self confidence and encourages optimism while green gives out a relaxing kind of energy bringing you closer to nature.
Ultimately, fresh flowers bring luck and fortune into your life and radiate positive energy like nothing else in the home so introduce some floral inspiration into your life today – your chakras will thank you for it!
