Have you ever clicked on those buzzfeed quizzes that get shared on Facebook to discover which city you should actually live in, what kind of ghost you’ll come back as or which Hollywood actress is your soulmate? No, me neither… *coughs shiftily*.
To celebrate the first stirrings of spring, I’ve created a flower essence quiz so you can discover which spring flower has a message for you.
When I teach flower essence workshops I invite people to choose the images of flower essence plants that appeal to them most so we can explore whether those essences could be useful for them.
I’ve noticed that when people dive straight in and choose the pictures they like without first getting centred in their hearts, the flower messages don’t resonate. But when they do get centred and choose from their intuitive heart wisdom, the messages are useful and relevant,often reflecting hidden aspects of the self that the person wouldn’t have logically recognised as needing balance.
So I invite you to centre yourself. Become aware of your feet on the earth, your body on your chair and your breath in your heart.
Close your eyes once you’ve memorised the brief guidance below.
Take a few long slow breaths releasing tension from your body and become aware that you are connected to the earth beneath you, the sky above you and the love within you.
Keep your awareness on your breath flowing in and out through your heart until your mind quietens down and you feel centred. Quietly ask yourself ‘Which of these flowers has the message I most need right now?’ and then look at the images below to see which flower stands out for you.
Notice how you feel while you’re looking at the flower that attracts you most e.g. peaceful, inspired, comforted, thoughtful.
Explore it a little deeper using these prompts if you want to develop your intuitive connection with the language of nature. If you had to write a character sketch about that flower how would you describe it? Passionate? Gentle? Wise? Loving? Does it feel masculine or feminine? Does it remind you of anyone you know? Do you feel a resonance in a particular chakra or body part when you’re looking at it? Or does it resemble a particular body part? Just notice what impressions come to you without overanalysing or trying too hard. You can compare your impressions of the flower you’re most drawn to with the other flowers to observe differences you notice between them.
