Flowers for a husband and father dealing with challenges of being a husband and a father and prepared to do differently

Beloved Flower Lover,

It’s time to start a fresh, to start anew and we were really intrigued by a story of a couple who found their way through emotional turmoil to the place of healing. Please watch Iyanla guide a willing couple back to wholeness over 60 days or more.

Our simple flowers are our way of saying thank you to Ms Vanzant and the couple for sharing their intimate lives with us. For allowing us to feel their pain and the release of it too. Thank you for showing us how we too if we choose to, if we give ourselves permission to, if we remain open to, can see that change is not just possible. But that it happened by healing that part of us all that needs to come back home and feel cared and loved.

Chinese New Year is almost here-What flowers to get?

Beloved Flower Lover,

You can still prepare for an auspicious 2017 just by acknowledging the Chinese Solar New Year on February 3rd 2017. This year is the year of the Fire Rooster!

The Chinese New Year celebrations revolve around the Lunar New Year which this year is on January 28th. However, the Chinese Solar New Year on Feb 3rd is the start of a totally new energy. So its a great time to set intentions for the new year and start your inner changes now, preferably before Jan 28th and no later than Feb 3rd.

 

Now is the time to clean, clean, clean. Get rid of old dust that you do not want to take into the new year with you. Get off to a fresh start with a clean home and office.Clean all your precious belongings and get a new doormat! A clean fresh doormat, is welcoming and heart warming. Then, fill your home with beautiful blooms. The Chinese love red, so you may like to do that. Or you could go with something else what is precious to you. We are  filling the home and office with lovely bulbs to reflect the new energy of spring.

Flower Rituals, righteous anger, and causes of health

Beloved Flower Lover,

According to Dr. Martinez, the causes of health are, rituals, righteous anger and more. Dr Mario Martinez teaches us that setting emotional limits is essential for care takers. Plus, setting the emotional limit and letting others  get upset about it when you enforce those limits is the real key to health.

Let others get upset….and….now go get your flowers!

Prediction 2: You know exactly what area of your life you can change right now, using positive prediction for your life and flowers-Use self fulfilling prophecy for your own good!

Beloved Flower Lover,

Now we are in winter and heading towards spring, we will open up to the truth of more love in our lives and enjoy it more and more.

Let’s go back to this topic of self fulfilling prophecy.

A self-fulfilling prophecy is a belief that comes true because we are acting as if it is already true. The term “self-fulfilling prophecy” (SFP) was coined in 1948 by Robert Merton to describe “a false definition of the situation evoking a new behavior which makes the originally false conception come true” (: 477). He illustrated the concept with a run on a bank (a fictitious “parable”); his main application was to racial discrimination. The term has since entered social science and even everyday English, a rare feat for a sociological neologism.

The concept has been subsequently rediscovered or renamed as the “Oedipus effect” (Popper 1957), “bootstrapped induction” (Barnes 1983), or “Barnesian performativity” (MacKenzie 2006).

SFP has been discerned in a congeries of processes (e.g. Henschel 1978): within an individual, as with placebo response; in relations between individuals, such as teacher and student; in relations between collective actors, like states; underlying institutions, such as banks and financial markets; and, most provocatively, between social theory and social reality.

SFP is a particular type of dynamic process. It is not the truism that people’s perceptions depend on their prior beliefs. Nor is it the truism that beliefs, even false ones, have real consequences. To count as SFP, a belief must have consequences of a peculiar kind: consequences that make reality conform to the initial belief.

In other words, causing something to happen by believing it will come true

Positive or negative expectations about circumstances, events, or people that may affect a persons behavior toward them in a manner that he or she (unknowingly) creates situations in which those expectations are fulfilled.New Agers call this The Law of Attraction  but there’s really nothing mystical about it.

Our expectation that we will see a particular outcome changes our behavior, which shapes the way others see us. In turn, others provide the feedback we’ve set ourselves up to get, which serves to reinforce the original belief.

What are some ways you see self-fulfilling prophecies operating in your life? Where are they holding you back?

Perhaps select one beautfiul flower to remind you that you are more than that and you have a new prediction for yourself. use flowers functionally to help create health. To invest in yourself. To remind yourself that you are beautifully equipped on the inside  and outside to achieve. To remind yourself that you have the correct lens to look at yourself.  This is like using flowers, helping you to inspire you to consider  what thought is the cause of you enjoying yourself.

Alternative Valentines: Flowers are information-Caveat: Do not read this unless you have a real dream and passion for yourself. Warning: If you are just mucking around-do not read this article at all.

Beloved Flower Lover,

We are so exicited for you!

We see flowers as information. Meaning, they can help turn on different parts of your brain.  We were reminded about what we mean as we re read our strap line and we

As Florists in London we guide you on how to use your Flowers to avoid neglecting yourself or others. How to use Flowers as beautiful rewards for your accomplishments, as a lovely stress relief after your achievements and as a gorgeous consolation for disappointments. Like Us, Contact Us, Subscribe!

We keep learning and love it. We notice that what we talk about is a little like functional medicine. Its like knowledge is power when you get to grips with  key principles of health and happiness and how flowers might help us take back our energy, focus and our lives.

If you are interested in learning how to enjoy a life of vitality,then you have to have  a broader vision for yourself. Of love, happiness and peace. To know the connection between your dream like and flowers.

We attempt to provide that bridge here and  show you how flowers can help redirect your attention to  the love, peace and joy within yourself and share it with others.

We are not being transient, we are true consistent believers of you. The experience of love, peace and joy. You have to know what you want from your life.What you wnat your life to be about.Until you know that, then you will just drift.

Once you have set out your personal dream.It may be your valentine, then you can set flowers in that context. To live more openly and enjoy love more deeply.

If your personal dream is about love, peace and joy with your valentines  and that is part of your dream life, then you will be open to learn and grow mastery in love.Self love first perhaps and then sharing it.If you are not mastering enjoying love right now, being excellent at loving yoruself and others now, then you might be mucking around! Real stuff

No mystery.

Today, we believe that we all need to re-imagine flowers as information. Flowers are far more than superficial beauty, they are instructions to trigger the beautifying hormones in our lives.Flowers,beauty, caring and sharing are synonymous. and because we find that the hormones that make us feel happy and cared for are triggered. By giving them to yourself, sending them to others, and having them around you send messages to hormones in your body.

Again, decide what your real desire is.Your real passion. What you want your life to be about. Then find a way to immerse yourself in all things love, peace, and joy. If you think you want some feedback  about your current view of love, then you can enjoy the rest of the article. So let’s go on.

Flowers are  more than  simply petals, buds, leaves, they are in fact an instructional control panel. By sending or receiving flowers we feel more cuddly, which triggers  oxytocin,which is a feel good hormone often called the “cuddle hormone”. Oxytocin is released when we feel love, trust and comfort. It can be even more powerful than serotonin. If you need a lift, remember the power of simply spending time with your significant other or family members and friends and sharing something beautiful with them, like flowers.  By being up front about you wanting to grow more love in your life, then you can, you can upgrade your life.

We found this from a wonderful chap called Isaiah McGee and just felt it was in keeping with The London Flower Lover Valentine season. Yes, we do want you to remind yourself about the problem you have but no longer want, or the result ou want and do not have yet.We are assuming that this is about valentine love, so we changed his headline to Top Ten Ways to Sustain Your Resolve for  Love from the New Year and Beyond

  1. Let the Past be the Past… Decide within yourself that your history primarily serves to bring you to your present. Resolve to be present to the Now moment; rather than unconsciously living from your past associations about yourself and life. 9.  Constantly reaffirm… “For every dollar/Pound spent, TEN MORE return! We are always unconsciously subtracting the money spent from the money remaining; whether its deducted from a 20 dollar reserve or two million reserve – we tend to think in terms of subtracting RATHER THAN EXPANSION. Constantly imagine and consider that when money is being spent ten-fold is returning, this shifts the mind out of a fear-based relationship to money. 8. EVERY MORNING to START your day, spend seven minutes identifying the benefits you desire your day to contain. Do this EVERY DAY; it aligns your thought process with the possible rather than the probable. (“I am looking for my day to be filled with … and … and …”) 7. Resolve to release DOUBT … the default assumption you WILL NOT behave outside of currently habituated norms is acquiescing to victim-hood. You are not a victim of how the brain has been wired as you have the ability to re-wire with every thought! 6. Replace self-criticism with self-compassion. Resolve as you are reading this to replace the habit of criticizing your acts or behavior with self-compassion by understanding that the brain is very impersonal; it does things out of conditioned associations, not necessarily out of wisdom or intelligence. This appreciation shifts your relationship with yourself from one of an adversarial nature to that of comradeship with your own being. YOU and your being are best buds! 5.  Love rather than loathe. Steadily increase your outlook for things and aspects to love about yourself rather than focusing on the things that are “wrong.” The more your increase your lookout for things that empower your well-being the more those kinds of elements are compelled into your experience.  4. Change routine. Begin to engage normal, routine behaviors in a different way or order of processing. As you change up the route, wired way of doing simple matters it prepares the brain to be more receptive to new, positive developments to occur. Change the order in which you bathe or shower (start by washing different extremities then the habituated method and dry off in a different order; take a different route (but just as efficient) when participating in routine errands as grocery shopping, the cleaners, etc.). Changing habits changes possibilities! 3. Assume Life is Greater. The brain has a tendency to define life based on what it is exposed to; if you inundate your brain with the News reports, you’ll have a tendency to think the only thing going on in the world is what makes the news (primarily violence and conflict). Limit your brain’s exposure to negativity not out of fear or delusion but out of empowered CHOICE; you are choosing to feed your brain a diet of balanced environments – exercise, contemplation, arts, Nature outings, etc. – the kind of environments that expand your brain’s perception of possibility in the world. 2. Non-participation confidence… demonstrate the confidence to not participate in conversations and activities that commensurate/confirm negativity. Sometimes we gossip or go along with trains of thought at the water-cooler, at church, with industry peers, just to feel a sense of belonging to the group or activity. When belonging itself becomes more valued than what you are belonging to, then you can find yourself “belonging” to ideas, attitudes and processing that interferes with well-being rather than contributing to it. 1. Forgiveness… Decide what you are going to be for. Be for giving to yourself. Be for giving self thoughts that provide peace of mind, be for giving self compassion, be for giving the self release from past pain, hurt and misunderstandings. Be for the joy that informs your actions with an uplifting spirit of action. Be for giving to your self.

Happy New Year… Happy New You!

 

We are really exicted about is how you are growing more love in your life. And  we have put together two quesions for you to  answer  if you want to enjoy more love in your life today.The questions are:

1.) What is the problem you have in love that you want to avoid?

2.)  What is the result that you want and do not have in your love life?

Answer those questions, and then choose a love flower to help you reinforce your answer as you grow in love during this year.

We  recognise your love and know that life is here for you.

We are excited for you!

Prediction: The peace and joy inside you flowers every time you think of yourself as the best you are today!

Beloved Flower Lover,

A Self Fulfilling Prophecy is a prediction that causes itself to come true due to the simple fact that the prediction was made. This happens because our beliefs influence our actions.

For example, if a woman thinks that her husband will leave her for another woman, she will act in ways that will directly or indirectly cause her belief to come true. She might get jealous easily and make a fuss about him being friends with other women. She might pick fights whenever she suspects that he is cheating on her, or she might go through his personal things to look for evidence of cheating. Eventually, her actions will put a strain on their marriage, and her husband just might leave her, causing her prediction to come true.

Have you ever been asked to do a task, such as maybe you’re starting a new job, and you believed before you started that you wouldn’t be good at it? Maybe you thought to yourself, ‘I’m not going to be able to do this,’ only to try it out and realize that your fears were correct? This is known as a self-fulfilling prophecy.

A sociologist named Robert K. Merton created this term in 1948 to describe a false definition of the situation evoking a new behavior, which makes the originally false conception come true.

In other words, the prediction we make at the start of something affects our behavior in such a way that we make the prediction happen.

Self-Fulfilling Prophecy in Action

Going back to our earlier example, let’s say you’re starting a new job as a receptionist but have never done that type of work before. You may have a strong belief that you won’t be able to handle the responsibilities. As you begin your job, you can’t think clearly, you keep saying negative things to yourself about the work you’re doing, and you’re in a lousy mood, so the customers dislike you.

Three weeks later, you lose the job. In this case, your negative expectations at the beginning of the job have affected your behavior to the point that your prediction comes true. Once that happens, we believe that our prediction must have been correct, which only encourages our confidence in future predictions, thereby perpetuating a reign of error, as Merton put it. Self-fulfilling prophecies are not limited to affecting only ourselves; we can also make predictions about other people that create the same type of results.

So let’s think about flowers, love, friendships, work, your health, your finances.

Where might you need to be radical to think you have real hope, real energy, to solve real problems? Where might you want to use flowers as your signpost symbol to remind yourself that you are flowering into that very wonderful thing you  predicted?

 

Just a thought
