Hibiscus flowers hold divine energy of unity, togetherness, peace and happiness. Our skin symbolically represents our sensitivity and our sensitives to life are expressed here. The way we use our mind influences how we are touched by the situation and how we respond or in some cases react to them. Our skin is the book that tells our living story of what is happening within our life on the inside as well as within our life situation we are currently within. The hibiscus flower repairs the imbalances that are occurring which are restricting us from being in alignment with our centre. The hibiscus reminds us that we are all on our most deepest level are belonging together and we are each apart of the same creation and from the same source. Drawing from the healing power of this flower and using it within our regime of self care on our body and senses, we can honour our touch on life and how life touches us through our skin and nurture our spirit and mind.
