Congratulations for 25 Years of Success

Delighted from the inside out

This week I had the privilege of creating another bespoke flower arrangement for an entrepreneur in the Entertainment industry. She was celebrating 25 years of successful work in the Entertainment industry.  And just preparing and actually making the design took me through a delightful journey within myself.

Surrounded by floral equipment, I heard a voice in my head, which said

“Guide me with laughter and smiles to create something that best celebrates success, let me find a trigger, a symbol that takes me step by step through the path of this persons amazing journey to produce a gorgeous loved filled design.  Let me connect to stillness, movement, tears and laughter, beauty and joy. Let this design be a pathway of well-being for all and the fruit of inspiration. Let it became crystal clear as my intention today is to use beautiful flowers to celebrate success”

That was my prayer. I took a deep breathe in and out and  three days from inspiration, planning to delivery -a  completion of a journey. I breathed out deeply as I  opened up and let it all settle inside; I breathed out deeply and  let it just sit without action.

Then, Bingo!

I got it its like Remembrance Day!

That was my inspiration that I got clearly as I looked in places, which were motivated and inspired by love.  I walked through Stratford London and looked at people. I was inspired by the variety of peoples around from the World. How they expressed love, calmness, forgiveness, excitement, clever words, beauty, nurturing, commanding certainty, leadership, and ‘being the change they wanted to see in life’.

I noticed how they expressed optimism, lived by law, lived in unity, lived in the natural time cycles of life, and expressed a knowing that happiness is not dependent on getting what you want. That happiness is your nature. The calmness of life. I looked at all of that whilst I also thought about all the splashing around in life, which contradicted all of that. And I choose to just sit and stay in touch with all of that in my own person. Then I began to select the flowers!

A Celebration is not superficial; it provides a breathing space for connecting with what we love in life within ourselves first. It is a ritual of the greatest value.  It really does bring out the best in us. It is an Inside out job.

One of my teachers, Michael Neil, reminded me that we are often taught that if we can just find the right sorts of stuff on the outside, the right one, the right thing, then we can get to feel wonderful and fulfilled. Yet this is a path of striving .He reminded me that, ‘It is not what do you or not do. It is not what you have or do not have. Its recognising that the thing you want-happiness, is your inborn nature.’   ‘So it’s not that we need to trick ourselves into, by denying ourselves the pleasures of life or by chasing things. No, it’s knowing that we can live from the inside out. And still want what we want. If we get it, we are doubly happy cos we have the happiness already and now the thing. If we do not, we still have the happiness.

Neil,l reminded me that we can connect to the feeling that we want so much, first. If we identify and recognise the feeling we want from the start and begin with that feeling initially, then it acts like a tracking device, a compass, a pointing device, an opening for all sorts of delights inside of us. He talks in his work that just by allowing that, the whole thing of life becomes even more of a genuine celebration. That’s were we ought to look when we approach celebration. It’s also the real way to reach the high point of a project, life, job, relationship and enjoy what we observe.

With that in mind, I call this my’ inside out ‘approach to designing, because I connect and create the feelings inside first.

So the next time you are in a high spot wanting to do some ‘Remembering- Marking a milestone, Landmark in life…

The next time you have reached a summit and height of some achievement, record, and want to celebrate that next highpoint

The next time you want to celebrate a breakthrough, an innovation, some kind of groundbreaking, pioneering achievement, be it historic, or significant in some way, perhaps you can use flowers to be an exchange for that splendour of the success. Perhaps you can use flowers to reflect the beauty of enjoyment!

Flowers can be a reminder that these feelings already exist, inside and the giving and sharing of the flowers is a symbol of that.

We at the London Flower Lover would find it a great privilege to be apart of expressing that for you.

That is our gift in peace
