We've connected various flower essences to each chakra for healing purposes.
We balance our Chakra centers and 'Chi Power' with a myriad of modalities such as yoga, meditation, exercise, massage, therapy, rest, and healthy eating. We may also utilize 'Vibrational Healing' or 'Energy Medicine.' In my practice I use the healing modality Flower Essence Therapy, using flower elixirs to aid emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Flowers are like little mirrors of body and soul, each one carrying an energetic pattern that reflects special attributes for healing.
Each flower has a Plant Signature, a system studied by early botanists as a way to explore and understand the medicinal qualities of plants, flowers, and herbs. Each pattern composition offers a gift to humanity from the very soul of nature. Over a span of hundreds of years, we’ve learned the many benefits of plant medicine and elixirs: those that heal the maladies of each living being.
First Chakra: Healing Flowers: Red iFulva Iris, Angelica, Shooting Star, Rose.
Located at the base of the spine and the back of the knees. Its Sanskrit name is Muladhara, meaning, “root support.” This Chakra connects one to the earth and reveals patterns related to issues of insecurity, fear, greed, safety, and prosperity. When healthy one is vital, grounded, feeling safe in the world. It's the root from which true health, well-being, and empowerment grows.
Second Chakra: Healing Flowers: Hibiscus, Wild Iris, Pomegranate, Indian Paintbrush
Located between the pubic bone and the naval. Its Sanskrit name is Svadhishthana, meaning “dwelling place of the self.” The patterns of imbalance associated with this energy center are creative stagnation, fear, sterility, lust, inertia, and unconscious somatic memories. When in healthy alignment, you will be able to source energy for creativity, movement, procreation, desire, pleasure, and relationships. You will be able to freely express your wants and needs in relationships, and pleasure will be a priority.
Third Chakra: Healing Flowers: Sunflower, Buttercup, Wall Flower, Saguaro Cactus
Located in the solar plexus, the lumbar spine, and the umbilicus. Its Sanskrit name is Manipura, meaning “city of jewels.” This chakra is also associated with digestion. The key patterns of imbalance are anger, self-denial, lack of integrity, inertia, and an inability to take leadership. When you feel self-confident, have a strong sense of purpose, and are self-motivated, your third chakra is open and healthy.
Fourth Chakra: Healing Flowers: Nootka Rose, Bleeding Heart, Phlox, Borage
Located between the shoulder blades, the heart region, and the palms of the hands. Its Sanskrit name is Anahata, meaning “unstruck.” It is also known as the Heart Chakra. The key patterns of imbalance associated with this chakra are over attachment and neediness, an inability to receive, emotional paralysis, feelings of abandonment, sexual dissatisfaction, and conditional love. The Fourth Chakra serves as our center of love for oneself and others, compassion, empathy and forgiveness. When healthy, it is associated with unconditional love, compassion, and joy. It is the source of deep and profound truths that cannot be expressed in words.
Fifth Chakra: Healing Flowers: Snap Dragon, Morning Glory, Sagebrush, and Dandelion
Located at the back of the neck and the throat region. Its Sanskrit name is Vishuddha, meaning “pure.” It is also known as the Throat Chakra. This chakra affects communications and speech patterns. Patterns of imbalance include unresolved grief, fear of judgment, speech impediments, and all hindrances related to self-expression and inspiration. A balanced throat chakra helps to set us free from the fear of judgement or need for approval from others. This chakra helps us to embrace our originality and unique individual experiences in the world. It is also associated with purity, thus connecting it to the concept of truth.
Sixth Chakra: Healing Flowers: Cat’s Ear, Purple Water Lily, Queen of the Night Cactus,
Located on the forehead between the eyebrows. Its Sanskrit name is Ajna, meaning “command” or “perception.” This area is also known as the Third Eye. Patterns of imbalance include lack of vision and imagination, and an inability to connect with devotion. An open sixth chakra can enable clairvoyance, telepathy, lucid dreaming, expanded imagination, and visualization. Clear-Seeing and intuition is developed.
Seventh Chakra: Healing Flowers: Lotus, Silversword, Passion Flower, Orchid
Located at the top of the head. Its Sanskrit name is Sahasrara, meaning “thousand-petaled.” It is also known as the Crown Chakra. Patterns of imbalance include self-delusion, escapism, lack of clarity, and a tendency to glamorize the spiritual world or indulge in spiritual materialism. When healthy there is a strong connection with the supreme Self. The awakening of the Crown Chakra means a universal flow of energy and spiritual enlightenment and humility that ultimately connects the individual with compassion for global Peace and Greater Understanding.
