Despite its name, Shower of Orchids is not related to orchids; it's a gorgeous tropical climbing vine. Native to Thailand, the Shower of Orchids flower helps us recognize our innate wisdom and inspires us to ask the question, "What is my contribution to the world? How am I offering value?" It dissolves any doubts related to purpose, adequacy, fear of aging or not making a mark. Shower of orchids hones our powers of observation, awakens our sense of knowingness and helps us see the wealth of our contribution to the world. Read more about Shower of orchids here!
