Prayer flags are gentle reminders of our essence and help us to open our hearts and minds. It is a sign of respect to keep Tibetan prayer flags off the ground and to have clear, beneficial intentions as they are being hung. Tibetan prayer flags when hung create the intention for more kindness for ourselves and all beings. As prayer flags wave in the wind they carry our wishes for compassion, peace and healing around the earth. Prayer flags encourage us to live more mindfully and help us to restore our own inner calm. A more peaceful world begins within each of us, one open heart at a time.
