Happy Birthday Flowers, “your best years are still ahead sweetheart”

Beloved Flower Lover,

“Sugar Happy Birthday”

He looked at her, took a slow steady breathe in and exhaled.  He felt the tingle of a firm and strong lightning rod, as he watched her enjoy how she looked ageless, specutular and fabulous!

“Your best years are ahead of you”, he said. He kissed her on the forehead.

Exhalted. Just by enjoying what she enjoyed, she surrendered and just followed…

Her shoulders lowered, her head leant forward, her lips parted open, wide and she breathed out pleasure. Waves flowed.

He smiled, she smiled even bigger!

She surrendered to her deep bodily breath and danced inside of herself.

Power

Hers

His

Re-choosing the thoughts, feelings and action about  the ‘cultural wounds’ of yet another birthday.

He gave her flowers and made her hot ‘Cocoa’ tea,  also known as dark hot chocolate tea.

She had come to her senses quickly. She realised that the pleasure flowing through her body was part of her initation. A wonderful turning point. She swayed her hips, dancing as she became even more deeply vulnerable, soft, and gentle…lit up in the face of pleasure. Her flowers illuminated her internal electrical system. It was celebrating and pulsating…mmmmm .

The fountain of her youthfulness, which had already been triggered by her own happiness, which had tried to get her attention for years, was now being listened to. Just by enjoying what she enjoyed. She smiled.

All of her…. went through her ‘earth day door’ and as she moved through the stiffness of discomfort about joy, pleasure and age…she re- initiated herself into deeper bliss… the ageless ability to be at peace with what is.

Another slow steady breathe in and out.

It was a pinch herself moment. She turned her attention to the ‘first stroke’ of her Earthday joy, the beginning of being mesmerised by her own flourishing.

“Wait until you see me next year”, she said!

She choose just to be a flower. Better and better. To feel her own turn-on.  She loved and accepted herself with a little help with her ‘ignatia’ drops. Her future was bright, whilst, she loved herself right now as she is today. Maybe weighting less or more or less than what she had planned, she still enjoyed the surrender of following desire right now. Heaven on earth, savouring the intimacy of herself right now. It was never to late. forgiveness, releasing old resentment, dropping complaints and gossip. She knew she was re-inventing a language of being a birthday gift to herself and others, which only got better.

So she accepted just where she was right now. No emergency. It was just a birthday and guess what,  her shoulders dropped, her lips parted open, and she breathed out pleasure…reinforced by the mirror of her own amazing smile.

She danced to be felt, not to be seen…..

He buckled when he saw her smile and they both knew that the best was ahead.

Flowers and exercise as you move beautifully into agelessness

Beloved Flower Lover,

Why you should never tell anyone how old you are again
The science behind our culture of ageism and how to stop buying in
The hard core science that backs up the mind-body connection
Why we have way more control over our biological age than we think we do
How to step out of the age discussion
Exactly what to say when someone asks you how old you are
Why you’re not behind
How to celebrate your birthday without it being about you getting older
The thing all healthy people over 100 have in common
How to look better and better every single year
How to get a brand new body in 7 years
How to know whether or not to freeze your eggs
What every woman over 35 who wants to have a baby must know
Plus way more juicy content and great giggles!

Perfectionism is the excuse we use to not do something. -@DrChrisNorthrup (Tweet it!)

 

We look forward to your thoughts.

Monica Lewinsky’s Ted Talk on Shame, Cyberbullying and Compassion, Reminds us to Spring Clean our beliefs and fill that space with beauty. We choose flowers as one gentle way to make a difference between how we feel!

Beloved Flower Lover,

We have a shared interest with you… Who is in whose gang? This thought was prompted by Monica Lewinsky…well we pondered as we were playing with colours on the colour wheel.

Monica is helping so many to make the unseen, seen, To educate us all about respecting a side of us that we sometimes want to hang onto. We really had a spring clean of our thoughts. To re-consider our power. Power to re-write our story. Hey, we might be in the same position as Monica.

We wonder how we can access female power and use that female power as a complement, rather than as an embarrassment? How to heal naive female power as men lust for its young beauty? Just a few spring questions that were prompted by Monica’s Ted talk and knowing we are in Spring Time. We utilise and spin our power in different ways.

Experience and love despite what has or had happened provides us with wisdom. So what does this all teach us?

 

Our minds are open!

Flowers for the truth that ‘Everything is Waiting for You. We share David Whyte’s heartfelt poem with you

Beloved Flower Lover,

your muse the london flower lover

Everything is Waiting for You

Your great mistake is to act the drama
as if you were alone. As if life
were a progressive and cunning crime
with no witness to the tiny hidden
transgressions. To feel abandoned is to deny
the intimacy of your surroundings. Surely,
even you, at times, have felt the grand array;
the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding
out your solo voice You must note
the way the soap dish enables you,
or the window latch grants you freedom.
Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.
The stairs are your mentor of things
to come, the doors have always been there
to frighten you and invite you,
and the tiny speaker in the phone
is your dream-ladder to divinity.

Put down the weight of your aloneness and ease into
the conversation. The kettle is singing
even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots
have left their arrogant aloofness and
seen the good in you at last. All the birds
and creatures of the world are unutterably
themselves. Everything is waiting for you.

– David Whyte

Still thinking about what her spring intentions ought to be: She looked at flowers and superfoods and knew she had to decide

Beloved Flower Lover,

Spring ideas about improving her health were emerging and she thumbed through a book. She got totally caught up with it and wondered how to cook all of these new foods. Then turning her head to her bike she noticed a big smile dancing across her face as she thought about how great it felt to have what she wanted most. The gift she had just given to herself made her feel sexy. Orgasmic.

She had been turned on enough to have got up really early and cycle into town and now  that she had the flowers, she  felt relaxed as well as excited. Just that made her body chill with the thrill of feeling that she had received what she most desired. Today, she knew how it felt to get real with herself.  She fed herself with what was most meaningful to her…..

 

20150301_194012

100_8367 100_8363

She carried on smiling and  realised that she probably didn’t even think about eating or sleeping when she prepared to get her flowers. In fact she experienced an almost-overwhelming influx of energy, filling her with exhilaration, benevolence, vigor creativity, and often insatiable sexual desire –  She was radiant.

What next? she purred to herself……

Well as she is setting her own tone and vibration for the coming period of time, can we share what we saw as her touch stone and golden key. We saw how  she used the sexual power of flowers and  how she linked them to her own sexual energy(consciously or not)  in the largest possible context. We see this story as being about life force, or Source energy — and that the health and vitality of our sexuality is inexorably linked to the health and vitality of our lives. – The fact that she allowed herself to touch into and enjoy that part of herself just contributed to her good vibe. And we are so glad she listened to her body and found her own way to honour her bodily pleasures. She trusted her inner wisdom, and allowed herself to unify body, mind and spirit and is directly a reflection of all that flourishes. She is woman, and she is ready to bloom !

That how we interpreted this story, how do you?

Was there a conflict or not?

What do you do to lighten your spirit?

How do you allow yourself to flourish?

How do you get yourself into a loving vibration?

Preparing Flowers for the New Moon , the Super Solar Eclipse and the Spring Vernal Equinox in London

Beloved Flower Lover,

100_83601

London is cold and overcast today.

It’s like it is pausing….

There are lots of building works going on. And it does not feel complete. Last week when we saw people wearing shorts it seemed like summer was here. Yet today, it so cold, and the shorts and t-shirts we were wearing last week seem so far away. Some Londoners work so hard to make London sunny. It feels kinda ludicrous now that we were prepared to chuck out the heavy coats for a few days of sun. But hey hoy,  smiling now, we stopped trying to be somewhere else and instead we simply watch as people pad up again in big dark coats and hats.

We are ready for London just as it is.

100_8270

We have no fantasy about the British Winter and Spring. We learnt that it acts as a gift, How? Well it invites us to celebrate what is, rather than wanting something that is not here.  So when we are really cold or wet, hungry or overworked, we turn to flowers with a smile and use the energy exchange to remind us about the truth about who we are. There is no wrong involved.

Loving all of the relationships we have with all. The weather, people, situations and so on ….we move in and out of the practical and the dreamy. We  hear the phones ring and know we have lots to do. Yes we have been having a flurry of conversations about Friday 20th and the spring flowers people might use to acknowledge it. Yes today’s theme was to just love everyone we come into contact with,  whilst suggesting tulips, gerbera, daffodils and more.

Back to the educational.

We know that it’s  a Total Solar Eclipse in the Faroe Islands and Svalbard (Norway), and a Partial Solar Eclipse in Europe, northern and eastern Asia and northern and western Africa. We get it. It’s about giving thanks that there is so much beautiful loving energy around. So we point people to what we have garned about this time in the short videos we have collated throughout this post. And as we do that we consider the truism, ‘ as above, so below.

Mmmmm

So it’s a time to be quiet.

We can listen to the shift which is going on within us all. The solar eclipse, the new moon and the vernal equinox are all lining up this weekend and we realise that we are so not alone.  The collective change that impacts all of us right now is so apparent.

Practically, we have flowers all around. Favourites like the iris, tulips, hyacinth, muscari, roses, as well as exotics like ‘Bird of Paradise’. We look at the most popular cut flowers for spring, including daffodils, peonies and tulips and provide some helpful hints and tips on how to make the best of them.

Retrieve your joy

So where does this leave us. Well, we choose to love both the cold of today and the eve of spring. To enjoy the ‘possibility’ and ‘opportunity’ of the ‘unborn’ and the ‘unknown’. To relate deeply to the liminal space. To be intimate with  the ‘no longer’ and the ‘not yet’.

Today feels uncertain and that is very beautiful. Letting go of the old and preparing for the new and knowing that everything is as it should be, is beautiful.

So we say, prepare to flower because the time for that to happen is here!
