We may be healed, inspired, and connected to something more than ourselves through art. The use of flowers in art is one way to masterfully express this transformational potential. Working with flowers can be a deeply spiritual experience, whether it is for bouquet arrangements, floral installations, or just simple garden maintenance.

Many people turn arranging flowers into a religious ritual, a chance to connect with the divine and nature. It's an opportunity to release our spiritual potential and access our inner creativity. We transform into vessels for the beauty and significance of the flowers as we immerse ourselves in their hues, textures, and fragrances. Every petal that is picked with care and placed in the right spot expresses our connection to something bigger than ourselves.

Working with flowers gives us the chance to express our creativity while also providing a special chance to cheer up and comfort others. Flowers have a way of reaching beyond language and hitting the core of our emotions in times of joy or despair. The transformational power of flowers is evident, whether it's a bouquet given as a sign of love or a floral arrangement that comforts during a time of grief.

So, the next time you are pulled to a flowering garden or the impulse to put together a bouquet, consider it to be a religious deed. Give yourself over to the transforming power of art and the link to spirituality. Accept your divine potential and let the grace of flowers affect both your and others' lives.

[Brynn Larsen] I studied fine art in college, and I was a drawing emphasis. And while I was in school, I worked in a flower shop, and I just totally fell in love with it. I got really depressed in college towards the end, like to where I couldn't function. And so I left school and kept doing flowers, and flowers were so healing to me. It was like the only thing I still enjoyed. I think it's the place where I meet God almost in that moment of creation where I really feel like I'm using my divine potential and my talents, and create the space to meet God in that moment and to feel connected to something bigger than myself. I don't think it really matters what you call it or the verbiage that you use, but I do think that being spiritual, and tuning in is very important. I think it helps us find our path that is innately ours. I feel like I use my divinely given talents to help people in the hardest moments, and the best moments of their lives. I think we give comfort and beauty to people when they are bearing a loved one. When they are marrying the love of their life. When they have a new baby. Just being able to use the talents that I've been given in a way that I never could've dreamed up. I never would've thought that this was my path, but to use those every single day to create and to be able to bring something beautiful into those moments of people's lives, I think has been awesome.
