My experiment on the flower of life

There are theories and experiences that sayt hat the flower of life has a harmonizing and rejuvenating effect.

Of course I wanted to try to prove this and started a flower of life experiment. I took three white sheets of paper, drew a flower of life on the first sheet, on the second one I copied an existing flower of life image and the third I just left blank. Then I laminated the 3 sheets in water-proof film and put an apple on each sheet. To capture the change in the apples I photographed them every other day.


However, I quickly realized that apples are a very durable type of fruit. After four weeks, I could see that the apples had changed, but I couldn’t notice any differences between them. After 8 weeks the same thing. At some point I began to photograph the apples every two weeks, until I forgot them at all. But on 11.05.2014 I remembered my apples and got the camera to take another photo.

What I found out clearly surprised me. The apple with the copied image had aged and showed some small decay spots, the one with the blank sheet of paper showed larger decay spots. However, the apple on the hand-painted motif wasn’t putrefying at all, even though it was easy to see that it was aging.

This surprised me, of course, because I assumed that the two flowers were actually the same and that they would only lead to a little difference in the final result, if any. But the experiment showed that the hand-painted flower of life had a better effect on the apple than the copy.

My conclusion was, of course, that the flower of life has an influence on the environment, but that there are some differences in how we use it. This has always been clear to me in some way, but now I had proof in my hands. Of course, I also took pictures!

Here are some of the pictures of my experiment (february 2014 – may 2014):

1. Attempt with the hand-drawn image of the flower of life



2. Attempt with the copied image of the flower of life



3. Attempt without the image of the flower of life



So, what are your thinking about this experiment? I wait for your comment.

      Hello Alejandra,

      Thank you for your kind words.
      I am very happy that you want to know more about the flower of life :-).

      I’ve been with you since 2009 and I’ve learned a lot from her.

      And yes, there is also an online course where you can learn to paint the flower of life yourself.

      Unfortunately, the course is currently only available in German. Here you can find the course:

      But I try to offer the course in English in the near future.

      Have a good time and see you soon.

    Omg! I have no words!! That’s pretty crazy! I’m new to this whole thing but I am so fascinated about the power of the Flower of Life that’s why I am searching for information about it.
    I have been suffering from a lot of body pain for many years and decided to try a Reiki session two days ago. The practicioner had put a Flower of Life under the bed (with a crystal on top) where she did the energy treatment. It was the craziest experience of my life! I felt my body ventilating and the Flower of Life grow under me and sweep me into some sort of vortex! I started crying and breathing very strongly like something ‘bad’ was coming out of my body. I have felt very tired and dizzy since. The practicioner said it was very normal and that I was very sensitive to energy treatments but that something was falling into place :)) . She then gave me a Flower of Life to take home. I was inspired to stick it on the wall right above my desk just at the level of my third eye. Let me tell you that, just within a few hours, I gained so much more clarity about a business project I am working on! So many ideas were flowing to me I had to take a pen to write them down. This stuff works! It’s very strong for someone like me so I’m taking it easy 🙂
    Thank you Kawa for your simple and beautiful blog.
    God bless you 🙏

      Hello Lewis,

      that’s what I thought after this experiment :-).
      We have to learn to understand that there is more than what we can see through our eyes.

      Warm regards

    I was in the process of creating which means I get to be very open minded, get distracted, be drawn, follow instinct, and most important be ready for anything. I was so drawn to your message. I started this day looking to say thank you to someone and now I say thank you to you as well. Your blog is fun to read and sparked my interest to do more! I’m totally excited about this. Very cool experiment by the way! Reminded me of the study on water molecules when exposed to different emotions, words, thoughts, etc. Love it!
