Dear Flower Lover
What do athletes and flower lovers have in common?
Well athletes know how important their mental game is. And no matter how good you are at your sport, if you do not have your mind in the game more practice will not make you better.
A simple experiment at Manchester University in England shows that visualization alone can build muscle.
Half the group did exercises each day with their little finger, the other half only visualized doing the exercises.
The group that did the exercise increased the size and strength of the muscle by 29%.
The group that did not move a finger, only imagined, increased size and strength by 16%.
Build Muscle Only With Your Mind?
Pretty impressive, yes?
Think about it.
We are always talking in the wellness aspects of our blog. That it’s important to consider the ideal energy of flowers. To focus on what you want, rather than what you do not want. Like the energy of feeling, happy, feeling great with friends, waking up feeling great, lovely family and so on. Flowers can help represent all of that to yourself. Yes. It’s like having a reminder. An anchor, a trigger that is just there, silenty on our side, and being our best friend!
We are always telling each other in our team to watch what we say to our cells, because they are listening. To be careful what we say to each other as we work. We are careful what we say over the water that we use (see our blog on the effects of Dr Emoto’s experiments on water that crystals). And so we want you to realize how specific the messages from your mind to your body are- the words and images go to a specific place to perform a specific function.
So, when you say to yourself, “OMG I hate how fat my thighs are getting” or you tell your head “This headache is getting worse and worse” your body hears it and figures, “okay, we better obey. Fatter thighs you want? No problem. Bigger headache, you got it baby.”
Just a friendly reminder. If you want something to grow, tell it to grow. Imagine it growing. Immerse it in messages of growth. Imagine doing the very thing that will make it grow. Great for muscles. And boobs. (Research has been done on this as well)
Hypnotherapists know that it is not that hard to create a miraculous effect in your body, whether it is repairing damage from a stroke, stopping a headache, ending chronic pain, getting over a skin condition that was considered incurable. You get the idea!
Jump into a beautiful flower arrangement
So, we know there is a link with flowers, in fact we have written blogs about the research from Harvard University and others. So think about it- emotionally why you are really buying your flower arrangements?- what does it get you to focus on? celebration, good memories, love, joy, beauty, happiness, fun, great family, clearing up problems, great friends, free to have a lovely family, what ever is important to you, feel it, feel the wonderful feelings of what you are becoming. Flowers can help you stay in that good experience. Flowers can help you anchor in, and stay with that great feeling. It just helps to replace old bad feelings and instead load up our inner mind with great feelings. Just by the flowers you associate the best of things to, you are replacing old bad feelings with the greater, more wonderful, glowing, flowing feelings that light you up with joy and energy.mmmmm
Just think about all of that, as you think about your most loved flower. Just keep focusing on it. The flowers will then just bring up those good feelings of love, joy, happiness. Use it for getting rid of bad feelings about a tough day. Flowers will replace those bad feelings for something better. Reminding you and others that they can replace feelings about a tough day with the beauty that flowers represent. Powerful, only if you do it.
So take the first step, take 3 deep breathes and go ahead and close your eyes and focus on those good feelings until it grows and grows.
Ok, let’s do it. Do it several times.
Now as you think about that we would welcome it if you also choose us, or your local florist to help you to focus on these feelings even more. Reset your feelings each time you gaze at our lovely arrangements.
Glad you read, glad you are part of our family and friends and yeah you totally rock!
We really enjoy making these blogs for you. Please let us know how you experience them. We will keep on giving you lots of tips to help you live the life your really love!
