Throughout the century’s flowers have always carried a message. The color of an individual flower, along with the type of flower transmits a unique energy. There is a drawing of energy between the flower and the person, the giver as well as the receiver. Therefore, there is an energy and message given to the receiver of such a gift.
The energy of the Buttercup helps us to see our self-worth and value. While the Pink Carnation represents encouragement and strength. A bronzed colored chrysanthemum would help us to express our emotions of friendship while the red chrysanthemum would imply a reciprocated love.
It’s also important to notice the structure of the flower. Does the flower stand apart from other buds or blooms, if so, this may represent a sense of independence? If the flower is grouped among many, this would give the sign of dependency. A flower that appears strong and healthy would signify the strong and healthy character of the person who chose the flower. If a yellow sunflower or goldenrod is chosen, one might be choosing to stimulate their memory along with inviting a bright cheerfulness into their life. Pastel colors offer insight through the brilliance of the flower. Pink might signify the gentle compassionate side of the giver while the deep red might represent the fiery, passionate nature of the individual.

As early as my young childhood I remember always being curious about the supernatural, paranormal, and mysticism in general. I seemed to be drawn with curiosity about the unseen, or what one would term as the occult.
