Your Spirit Flower: Quiz

Your Spirit Flower: Quiz

Our favorite flower may hold secrets about the ways we connect to our spirituality. In this time of blooming, take a walk through our beautiful garden to find out what your favorite flower says about your spirit, then read our suggestions for practices you might like to try.

You can share this with friends and find out what flowers they prefer: all of our spirits together make such a lovely bouquet! Take the quiz here:

Which of the following flowers is your favorite? If yours isnít on the list, pick the one that comes closest.

Daisy: This sunny, optimistic type loves to connect with her spirit through service, especially in nature. Take nature walks, or participate in clean-ups in parks or other places you treasure. You will probably prefer the unpretentious simplicity of meeting up with friends to anything elaborate.

Gardenia: Exotic, sensual, and mysterious, this type is often attracted to esoteric Asian practices. Try reading a book on Tantric sexuality, or create a sanctuary for your spirit with brocaded hangings, mirrored cushions, lush flowers, and incense.

Iris: The iris is often the favorite flower of many body-workers and other healers. Explore deep meditation, sound healing, or the power of serene images of nature. You may also enjoy expressing your spirit with chanting or yoga.

Calla Lily: This flower embodies grace, dignity, and a Goddess-like presence. You may be drawn to the power and beauty of ritual, and to practices inspired by the ancient Goddesses.

Poppy: This unconventional type may love ecstatic trance dance as an expression of her vibrant spirit. Poppy types are often conduits for spirit when they perform or create, so you might want to explore venues for your creative gifts. Sign up for a workshop!

Rose: Rose-lovers express their spirits through acts of love and friendship for others. They may be drawn to the comfort of traditional services, and the beauty and grace of old hymns or other devotional music.

Violet: The violet type is deeply sensitive and empathic. She will show her devotion in private and uniquely personal practices. A violet person might want to try a daily reading of inspirational quotes, or may find herself attracted to the writings of the mystics. She may want to express her own spiritual insights in poems or other written pieces, as well.

Definitely a violet, though I find this a bit simplistic--I'm sure many of us would connect to at least two, and perhaps more, flowers.
Thank you for an interesting article.

This article was rather interesting. I would have preferred that it be longer, however, and included more flowers.
