Beloved Flower Lover,
It’s still raining in London, we love that. It’s Friday we love that. And we are working with floral colour pallettes of pink, yellow. We feel peacefully inspired to share what we have learnt about how to feel loved up. Using flowers and what’s more…your, our own brain!
Well first let’s increase our awareness about where within us ‘lovability’ comes from. Listen our brain has a major role in exercising that loving intention. Because how receptive we are to how we choose to use our energy is where our freedom lies. Once you allow yourself to experience the calm truth of that, then you are moved with compassion for yourself and others.
It is well-known that brainwaves change depending upon what we’re thinking about and that brain areas are specifically activated when we focus our minds on different parts of our bodies. This means that if a person imagines affectionate hugging then we get activation in the affectionate hugging area of the brain, but if they imagine ‘accomodating a desire’ then there’s activation in the ‘accomodating the desire’ area instead.
So if you can see yourself ‘choosing’ to imagine beauty, love, kindness then that part of the brain is activated you then feel the result. We feel our thinking. Turning those feelings of lovability, huggability, kissability and adorability inwards towards our own self allows it to be activated within.
Turning that loving attention onto the current image of ‘us’, the younger ‘us’, the future ‘us’ and the ‘inner us’ is what we desire for you. We feel this sweetly,strongly and with a smile.
Knowing what research says about how flowers help to activate calm,receptivity,and so much in the brain. We see that’s how we can best serve you. To bring flowers into your life to serve to help activate your brain’s experience itself enjoying the sorts of feelings the heart most desires. This is how we experience our thoughts. Flowers help to take us there.
As you use flowers to help you focus on lovability, notice the difference. Please share even the softest, gentlest,touching shift you feel.
Thank you so much for taking this beautiful journey with us.

p.s. Emotional impact of flowers
Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher on the study.
A team of researchers explored the link between flowers and life satisfaction in a 10-month study of participants’ behavioral and emotional responses to receiving flowers. The results show that flowers are a natural and healthful moderator of moods.
- Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. All study participants expressed “true” or “excited” smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal, occurring in all age groups.
- Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods. Specifically, study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers, and demonstrated a higher sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction.
- Flowers make intimate connections. The presence of flowers led to increased contact with family and friends.
“Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy,” said Dr. Haviland-Jones. “Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well being.”
