    For Beginners "Flower Therapy" by Doreen Virtue and R

    For Beginners

    "Flower Therapy" by Doreen Virtue and Robert Reeves is similar to flower essence books in that it focuses on energetic or vibrational healing, and incorporates Doreen's background working with angels and chakras.

    In part one, the authors introduce "flower therapy" -- working with the blossoms and their associated angels and faeries for personal healing. Part two is a directory of relatively common flowers, such as daisy, eucalyptus, magnolia, pine, rose, and sweet pea. Part three is comprised of three lists where you can look up a flower by archangel, chakra, or condition, such as sleep (lavender).

    Each flower entry lists its botanical name, energetic properties, associated archangel, associated chakra, healing description, and message from the flower. Each entry is one to two pages long with a small photo.

    There is quite a bit of information here. It's refreshing and lovely to work with the flowers themselves. That being said, I am still somewhat disappointed with this book because there are so many online sources of flower essence descriptions and more, such as the company websites of Bach, FES, Findhorn, Star, Perelandra, Greenhope, Desert Essence, and Spirit-in-Nature; just search for "flower essences". Where "Flower Therapy" could have distinguished themselves is by greatly expanding their section on flower therapy, including more exercises and case studies.

    Following an exercise in the book, I have asked some pink lilies to help me strengthen my commitment to living my soul's purpose. The bouquet, along with being beautiful, is now a constant reminder of my intention. We shall see what transpires.

    Pros:
    1. Full-color bleed pages on heavy-weight paper throughout.
    2. Clearly written entries on 88 commonly accessible flowers.
    3. New-to-me ideas, such as house clearing with a bouquet of flowers (white roses for cleansing and purification).

    Cons:
    1. Slim pickings. The section on how to actually do flower therapy is short, logging in at 45 pages. And the pages themselves are small, 5" x 7". I would have preferred so much more information.
    2. Almost no stories. I sorely missed examples. For example, it would have been great to have a story that described someone's dream coming true using flower therapy. Where is the anecdotal evidence? I love both success stories as well as case studies where the prescription did not work -- and what could be done in that situation. In this book, there are precious few stories, which makes me a little suspicious.
    3. Small photos. The photos are 1.75" x 2". For meditation, I would have liked much larger photos.

    In summary, a pretty but brief introduction to working with flowers and faeries, for beginners.

    I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes.
