Creativity, Sensuality, Flowers, Imagination and your Beauty

Beloved Flower Lover,

When we allow ourselves to create different links, associations or ways of relating to old ways of doing things, things change. That change is even better when what we link ourselves to, is our true image.

Yes so any picture that helps us to identify our true beauty then has us harnessing our natural ability for using the inner picturing ability of our imagination. This uplifts us all. Because we feel better about ourselves and so we relate from that energy to others.

Now, if that image has feelings of peace, joy and happiness embedded into it then we feel the flourish of abundance. Gosh the more we do that the better life gets.

 

Using our imagination is not new. We all do it. It happens all the time even when we do not use it ourselves for ourselves. Meaning we depend on someone else to define our image of ourselves. Sometimes that might not be so empowering, but that’s the subject for another post.

We are all natural creators. It’s our nature. It’s normal. That’s how we create science, fashion, design our lives, enjoy great sex, create and maintain happy families, enjoy the birthdays, weddings, married life, anniversaries, parties, generate the income and so much more. So yes, we can use it to help or to hinder the way we picture ourselves.

So how could flowers help you to beautify your life?

Perhaps……

start thinking about writing a story, think of a plot, think up characters for the story, take notes and expand the story over a period of time. Refine and change the story if you want to. Take your time, new ideas will pop out of your subconscious as you think about it. It is your creation you can do anything you want with it, use you imagination. Yes create a flower story to suit you.

…we wonder what you or we might write today as we look at the immeasurable beauty of flowers and yourself and how they guide us to mirror back the eternally deep love we keep finding and Even if we feel grief, sadness, depression, frustration, tiredness, just by going to the place where we decide to enjoy our own hearts no matter what. That’s success. That abundance which we share with others with a heart. Whether they live near or far, are in the joy with us, or just watching with a smile, are alive or passed away. We decide to take that into our future a picture of joy , 5 days, 5 weeks hours, or 5 centuries from now, beautifully.

What ever we decide for ourselves without a shadow of a doubt, what ever symbol of beauty we look at to enhance what we receive with joy, let us dance. Why? because we all share that very same love and so can celebrate.  Let’s feel whats natural in our hearts. The beat of warm, happy smiles…

This is not just happy clappy stuff, we love to share the science of this with you all the time, but not today in this post. Anyway, it takes courage to give up control of old associations that are no longer reflecting who we really are. To remain open to our beauty is like us holding the focus of stillness.  It’s ours. So we can relax.  So we can surrender. So we can feel the ecstasy of it’s sensuality as we enjoy the excitement of who we really are…you really are…. so beautiful

Gladioli: the Summer’s Superstar

Beloved Flower Lover,

If you ever want easy and effortless stardom for the summer get her,  yes she who is known as the gladioli. Invite her into your home, your office, your reception desk, or for your dinner party.

gladioli The London Flower Lover 1

The superstar blooms in midsummer and her fashionable status is what we love about the gladioli.

She is in many ways, like the summer tulip and no more difficult to grow. Like tulips, she really make perfect, long-lasting cut flowers.

This classic cut flower, she the  gladiolus serves you by producing perfectly tall flower spikes adorned with large, showy flowers. Let her in you will adore her.

If correctly cared for, she can bloom between 6 and 10 days when displayed in a vase.  She, Lady Gladiolus is available in a huge range of colors, including apricot, blue, burgundy, pink, gold, red, orange, and white, as well as multicolored varieties.

If you have her in your garden, possibly invite yourself to embrace her energy and bringing them closer to you by preparing her for your vase. So in the early morning or evening, prepare your heart use a  lovely sharp knife or scissors to prepare to cut the stems, leaving at least four leaves on the plant to nourish the corm and guarantee for you her gorgeous blooms next planting season. Cut her lower stems diagonally, place them in a bucket of warm water, and set the bucket in a cool dry place for 2 hours before arranging flowers.

Before arranging your unmistakable super stars , strip away her leaves that would fall below the waterline. Fill a clean vase with water and add floral food to the water. Re-cut  her stem ends on the diagonal and place her stems in vase. Set the clean vase away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

Lengthen her superstars life by giving her daily care. Every day, change her water and add floral food. She really appreciates it. It really works. Cut her stems back by 1 or 2 inches and pick off any of her wilted flowers to keep her arrangement tidy and to allow the unfurling upper buds to take center stage.

Keep smiling. She will keep sharing with you feelings of  joy. Keep turning to her this summer as every summer and notice what you notice.

The Man who talks with Flowers

Beloved Flower Lover,

The London Flower Lover

Many Americans already know that George Washington Carver was a prominent American scientist and inventor in the early 1900’s.  That Carver developed hundreds of products using the peanut, sweet potatoes and soybeans. That he also was a champion of crop rotation and agricultural education.  And that he was born into slavery and now today he is an icon of American ingenuity and the transformative potential of education.

Here in the UK, he is not as well know, so as we got to know about him we explored how we felt about our discovery.

After looking through our references (see below) we began to see a pattern about how he accessed his inner wisdom which resulted in his great external accomplishments.

http://www.biography.com/people/george-washington-carver-9240299

 Patterns we noticed in Mr.Carver that led him to have the name of ‘The Man who talks with Flowers.

He was a listener and he spent a lot of time in prayer listening to secrets of life.

That his outer situation was not a true reflection of who he was. He revised his identity despite being the son of enslavement.

He knew that he had the power ‘to choose’ who to listen to.

By quietening down and letting go of false descriptions of himself he has created ripples of peace in the world.

He seemed like a lot of fun as he clearly let go of either feeling inferior or superior to anyone else. Again an inspiring achievement during the enslavement period infused culture of the USA. He  seemed like he was not comparing himself with anyone. He was just listening to the source of all.  That was the route for him to be able to empower his inner wisdom to be in the driver seat as he talked to the flowers.

When we  step back and took another perspective. He was using the feminine power systems. The system of being receptive, a great listener and then the masculine system of doing and making showed up. His life showed us how to put our plans into action through listening. His talent came from that harmony.

The London Flower Lover

Inspired, we wondered how we could use those universal talents. So we began to look around at what else he had to offer and found quotes from the great man.

“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”

“Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater.”

“Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.”

“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.”

“Where there is no vision, there is no hope.”

“Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise.”

“There is no short cut to achievement. Life requires thorough preparation – veneer isn’t worth anything.”

“Learn to do common things uncommonly well; we must always keep in mind that anything that helps fill the dinner pail is valuable.”

 What next?

What ever you take from his journey, we trust that you can use it to create a guide of transformation . George Washington Carver has been added to our ‘Floral Hall of Fame’, because he had listened to his inner wisdom during a time when he could have been listening to his inner hater. He knew who to listen to. So instead he listened to that inner loving part of himself and was able to offer us so much.

Marianne Williamson reminds us about flowers, romance and how to relax as you experience a true return to love during Wedding Season

Beloved Flower Lover,

Deep in Wedding season and busy with flowers, we continued to study spiritual teachers who acknowledge flowers as a way to reflect love in our lives.

Cool. Today we were listening to Marianne Williamson’s audio. ‘A Return To Love’ is playing in our studio.

She was affirming love in a way that you do not find in the conventional magazines on the shelves when they talk about romance,wedding and flowers. So without judgement  we allowed ourselves to melt as we listened to her Jewish American voice project a softness through her words.   Continue reading

Perhaps today, let flowers remind you that after the words, I AM, you can follow it with the word, PEACE: I AM Peace!

Beloved Flower lover,

It’s high summer here in London. The warmth feels as it should and people are getting on with their routines. So are we.

We are putting away vases as well as cleaning used containers. We are using our knives and secateurs to cut stems, whilst we also clean the lower leaves from stems. String is being used, chicken wire being set out, roses are being arranged using our colourwheel and between all of that, cake is being served to clients.

During all of that, three messengers came in the form of a beautiful butterfly, a bee and an ant….and a vision became very clear,

How ever you are using flowers, maybe today, you can follow on with the words, I am peace and love.

Just a quick little post here: Doreen Virtue on Twitter has something to say about flowers!

Beloved Flower Lover,

We have been looking at Twitter recently and listening to others who are looking into self care, self compassion, and self love.

We know that people use lots of different methods to look after themselves and others. For us, self compassion, self care, and self love can be more important, especially for those who are big time givers.

 

Noticing that ‘givers’ need to ‘receive’ is an often needed realisation. Especially for those who forget it. So to help fill up those people in our lives who do a lot of giving with natural good energy is an on going task we have set for ourselves.

To ‘give’ or ‘receive’ a bouquet of flowers is about shifting and moving our energies.  That often means uplifting ourselves ‘first’ by remembering our connection to ‘natural’ beauty. That’s why for us, fresh flowers, as a gift for others or ourselves or  as part of decorating our homes and gardens is an essential part of self love, self care and self compassion.

What do you think? How do you use flowers in your life?

We found that Doreen Virtue had some key words to say about flowers too. What do you think?

Even if this short piece has made you think a little differently, the same or just improved what you already thought, let us know?

The team,

The London Flower Lover
