A tiny blossom tucked into a locket,
a sweet petal deep in your pocket or the image of a flower on a pendant or perhaps the aromatic oil of these plants dabbed lightly upon your skin will all help you to connect with the energies of flowers, of plants and bring their gifts of guidance, healing and inspiration to you.
Flowers you are drawn to will help you and those that are your birth-flowers, your personal flower of the current year and ones that are growing in your gardens or in your local environment will naturally offer support, but which flowers are best for what you are seeking to do? You can bring greater change to your current situation and disrupt the atmosphere to something more to your favour by focusing on flowers that inheritably have the qualities you are seeking.
For years now, each day, I have shared a ‘Flower of the Day’ on my Social Media places. I love to show people how they can give flowers with greater meanings and benefits for the receiver, how they can garden with this plant, a little about its history (because it illuminates the personality of the flower!) and I also share magickal correspondences and uses along with oracle meanings.
My meanings come from the flowers and plants themselves. They are the result of a multi-faceted approach I take to discovering the true Language of Flowers and plants through research, training and experience. I consider the ethnobotanical uses, herbal medicine practices, cultural significant and the botanical history of each before sitting down to write the meanings and share these correspondences with others.
These are some of the Flowers of Protection. Ones that you can connect with to bring greater safety to various aspects of your life. This is by no means a conclusive list as there are millions of flowering plants in the world, but it is one that I hope will help those who may need it.
In all cases, a Flower Essence would be the safest way to connect with each of these flowers physically and for protection, I would suggest a mist. You can also create bouquets were suitable, grow the plant in your garden if appropriate and also create or find artwork to display of the flower. Food-safe flower can be used to create teas, beverages and even treats. Check the toxicity and allergy information of each to ensure safety in handling and use of each.
