Give and Get Flowers for the Summer Solstice Celebrations and Notice their Ripple Effect

Beloved Flower Lover,

It’s a magical time of the year. It’s a ‘choose again’, time of year which we call Midsummer. The longest day  is around June 21st/22nd where you can celebrate how our joy, peace and happiness creates a rich emotional ripple effect as we identify with the exquisite abundance of life.

If you are in the northern hemisphere, the scent of the air is thick, green and juicy; it’s lost it’s spring astringency and is simply lush. The whole world is stretching it’s limbs and frolicking. The world is at it’s peak of beauty, seen through our adoring eyes. It’s Midsummer. It’s the Summer Solstice. It’s your time, our time to stop for it’s four days and re-imagine life, sweetly renewed. Teeming, swollen and fat with all the beautiful clarity of blessings we desire and request for a peaceful lovely life. We love it.

The Summer solstice is the culmination, the highest point of all the energies of the year. It’s a pivotal time of the year because we can take stock. When we look at what has come back to us emotionally. Whatever, disappointment, depression, desperation, joy, peace or fear. We just observe it and not to judge them.

It’s also a time when you can ask the heavens for help. It’s like asking a committee of helpers to enter your life. Like a joy angel, an abundance angel, a peacefulness angel, even a forgive and forget angel to clear things up.

We notice how this time reminds us all that it’s our own choice to offer acts of love and kindness. To be aware of how it creates ripple effects in all our relationships. A ripple of tone, of colour, of delicious flavour which we come from the etch we placed in our hearts again and again.

Yes, it’s every single person’s choice to recognise how a simple act of giving flowers, as a symbol of this.  How as an act of love and kindness, to self or others, ripples outward, eternally.

For us, it’s been the impact of giving and receiving flowers, to our selves first, others next and the impact of being surrounded by beautiful flowers, at home, or work that has been our focus.The love of all things feminine, including how it complements its complement.

That ripple effect is what we have loved and enjoyed over the last 6 months from the Winter Solstice until now. Midsummer is then our time to renew our love for all that we dream for ourselves, you and others.

It’s the time to reclaim and re-engender more and more extravagant images of us being victorious in being peaceful from within. Using our own imagination to express that victory in the words we use and the images we hold of ourselves.

We get to decide how valuable we are, beyond the material. Yes, we can up-scale our own value of ourselves, to ourselves about ourselves.

Our own gold standard which allows us to align ourselves with the best of ourselves can be inspired by flowers. Symbolically and materially.

Flowers, the giving, the receiving, to ourselves, and to others, can remind us of this Gold Standard and uplift our environment.   That space where you are coming from, is what matters the most. The resurgence of your real identity at Midsummer is the signficant turning point. That is it’s power, it’s importance.

We keep coming back to the fact that the earth is stopping still, for those short 4 days. It’s a time to also stop thinking you have to earn lovely things like flowers. No,  instead it’s a time for you to remember your own birthright. So even if you evaluate yourself as having fallen short of your goals, you may also realise that just because you are alive, you deserve to experience love, peace, and joy.

It’s a time for fun, joy, parties,barbecues and more with friends and family. It’s the beginning of summer a time for the beach or the park.

It’s the time to celebrate your vision, your plans, your structures, your support, your loving.

It’s the time to shift the internal world to make the external world, get high on   your brightest vibration.

It’s time to create some ‘over the top’, positive interpretation for why something ‘is not’ happening. It’s the time to totally beam in the fullness of life.

It’s amazing we began to look at the film ‘Pay it forward’, and recognised the message. It’s a message that says it’s an opportunity,  a wonderful time, a time where we can feel and see the ripple effect – from our thoughts and actions ripple outwards from the action we have taken, to impact those around us and the world at large.  It’s ultimately how we change the world by changing ourselves.  So it’s a pay it forward time.

Wow, we are full of it.

Imagine if you gave 3 people ‘flowers’, as an act of kindness. Imagine if they did the same. Imagine that ripple of love. Imagine, if you want to see more kindness in the world, the solution  sits with you to be kind, yourself, first. These good feelings in particular rub off, are contagious and just ripple out.

Today if you find a friend who is not smiling, how about offering them a pick me up. Just as Hermione in Harry Potter, who is known to be very uptight all the time, gets loosened up by Fred and George. Fred and George teach Hermione how to smile.  We often imagine the ripple effect if they gave her flowers?

Thank you for reading this, it’s a new beginning so, what ever your do, remember the solstice energy is happening.  So why not avail yourself of this opportunity to re-energise your life by imagining the bountiful, abundant, flourishing entanglement of life. And enjoy how you can pass on the love, just by a simple act of kindness.

Give Flowers.

Peace and many blessings

Observe 5.24 a.m.GMT: Summer Solstice. Enjoy the flowers!

Beloved Flower Lover,

Observe 5.24 a.m. GMT. Just pause, or at least put your alarm on. Think about the fully realized garden. The soil based garden and the one in your heart.

Appreciate it.

Use the power of Summer Solstice to bring floral love into the life of others

Beloved Flower Lover,

No one needs to know why you are doing this, just yourself. Show someone you care. As time passes away, they will remember this energy you are sending through flowers.

Just send them love using flowers and see them smile……that’s the power of your power!

How can you use flowers during the Summer solstice if you have a vision of love in the world, that you cannot see right now in London?

Beloved Flower Lover,

We Londoners have had a very busy 3 months, so really,  what can we do at this important time of year. Well, the summer solstice is a time to celebrate the light of consciousness within ourselves and within each and every person, and to reflect upon the potential for consciousness to awaken. Its probably the best time to check oneself. To see how one is maintaining peacefulness in thought and attitude in personal situations. Its a time to look at areas of our life that could benefit from more awareness. You know the areas that need attention. And if you don’t want to acknowledge it , then thats it s ok too.

For those who do want to use the energy of the summer solstice consider where  you, I, don’t trust each other, or ourselves.where we get angry, hurt, sad, or are grieving and just some other kinda version of upset. You will find a situation where those feelings come up.

Mmmm what ever it is, use the climatic summer solstice energy. It’s natural.Its about the heart, its about reconciling issues of love. Romantic and love for self and others. It’s heart energy is here for us to bring even more love into our life via our hearts. So use your heart as your guide and direct it to experience even more enjoyable love.

This year the summer solstice comes in at 5.24 a.m G.M.T.

Get your bare feet onto the soil and close your eyes. Using your inner imagination, visualize yourself  enjoying forgiving yourself and others for any issues . After that go and celebrate. You can repeat this over the next three days. No stress if you can or cannot. Perhaps just opening up now is where you are at. Or you can really go deep with it. Take time to have fun with change. It’s not a fantasy!

That’s what its about.

Use the sunshine and surround yourself with the beauty of who you are with flowers.

globe artichoke and red roses The London Flower Lover

That’s the celebration of it all.

Love for self and others because despite the external differences, we are one. This sounds simple in words, and maybe outrageous in spite of the things we are seeing going on in London right now, but it makes a difference when you consider how through your own change of heart that a situation can change.

Perhaps, consider people or situation where you feel estranged.  It could be your health, your finances, your relationships, your career, your parenting. Or it might be just a person or groups of people who you are not getting on with in your heart.

You know the situation, or person.  Take time over the next three days. Don’t rush. take your time and consider celebrating your ability to ‘decide’ to change the way you enjoy yourself in that situation. Perhaps you can decide to give life to your life, through the love within your own heart.

That’s how you bring the supreme light of consciousness down to earth. That’s how you make yourself smile in your world. Our world.

The Team,

The London Flower Lover,

p.s. Give flowers to yourself or others in celebration of love!

Flowers for daddyless women: Perhaps today you may be able to focus on what you do want in your softest softest softest heart instead

Beloved Flower Lover,

The role of the father is so important.

We hear about it from our clients all the time and so we created a little season of daddy, father, husband composites. Videos and flowers to express the inner story around ‘daddylessness’. We give thanks for Iyanla and Oprah for being the sorts of ‘mothers’, who created this video material we have been able to share. We give thanks for all those in the videos who have openly shared their intimate worlds as a gift for us to heal ourselves.

mmmmm, we breathe in peace, we breathe out stress, we breathe in peace, we breathe out stress, we breathe in peace and go deeper into that place…..

Daddy teaches her how to have a non sexual intimate relationship with a man. Daddy is there for a relationship. A daddy is different to a father. He teaches her how to be with a man.

Yes….the conversation began…. about a non sexual, yet intimate way of relating… and we as always encourage ways of healing, using flowers and nature, beautifully breathing life…

TheLondonFlowerLover The conversation, how can i love you more

Getting ready to die-perhaps give yourself flowers as you choose to be happy

Beloved Flower Lover,

Bronnie Ware, a palliative care nurse who spent years working with elderly people on their deathbeds, noticed a common theme that came up repeatedly among her patients at the end of their lives: They regretted not “letting” themselves be happy.

Ware, the author of The Top Five Regrets Of The Dying, wrote in a Huffington Post blog:

Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again … Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness

Why Men get Work Place Credibility for having Flowers in their Office

The London Flower Lover

The London Flower Lover

Beloved Flower Lover,

Penelope Trunk’s blog is really interesting, she writes about why men are given a lot of work place credibility for buying flowers. She writes….

Here’s the deal with giving flowers. Women like receiving flowers. Men think flowers are stupid.

Men think: Flowers die, they don’t do anything when they are alive, they are expensive, and they are a cliché. Men know that women in general like flowers, but men also believe that women they know personally do not like flowers. The women they know are the exception to the rule.

Penelope thinks it’s safe to say that mostly women are reading this post. Women are reading to figure out how to get the men in their lives to send flowers.

Here’s what it’s going to take: Bottom line impact. Yes, the men want to get laid, but dinner seems better: it’s like money well spent to them – you still get the sex, but you also get good food. What do you get with flowers? This is how men think, for the most part.

So, here’s what you get:

1. Flowers make the giver happy. The act of giving flowers elicits a real smile (as opposed to a fake, oh-that-was-nice smile) more often than other gifts of similar cost, according to research from Jeannette Haviliand-Jones, psychologist at Rutgers University.  And men are conditioned to react very positively to a real smile.

2. People think you are smarter if you’re a guy who gives flowers. That’s right. Send the flowers to your significant others’ workplace. Science says that people will perceive you as having higher emotional intelligence than your peers. Next step: Start milking your significant other’s network of contacts since they are already impressed with you.

3. Your will be a better manager. Men give flowers at work, too. Not every bouquet means I love you. Some bouquets mean, “Get the project done on time or we’re screwed.” Give flowers during crunch time because flowers and plants at the workplace increase productivity. This seems like a good time to link to the postabout when I got flowers from Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com. They definitely made me more productive.

Nancy Etcoff, evolutionary psychologist at Harvard, (who spouted radical views of female beauty at the Ted conference) concurs that flower make people happier. She found that if you see a vase of flowers in the morning, you have more spunk all day andless stress and anxiety at work. So don’t just send flowers to your girlfriend and your co-workers. Send flowers to yourself.

Wonder what your thoughts are about this?
