Beloved Flower Lover,
So she began.
We were sitting down and watched her as she lit a match and began burning the wick of a tea light candle. She began heating rose, gardenia, cinnamon and sandalwood essential oil in a simple soapstone oil burner.
As she lit the little candle and let us inhale the scent, we softened very quickly and began to breathe more slowly. Very quietly counting to us in for 3 and out for 6, then in for 4, out for 8, in for 5, out for 10 and so on, we got really really really slow very quickly. Softly we began nodding our heads. We noticed the natural difference.
Gently relaxing us she said,”that’s brilliant…well done… now perhaps imagine yourself in settled down comfortably in front of a movie screen and you feeling relaxed and calm about what you will see”….
We were well relaxed now. Calm and tranquil we continued to listen to the guidance. It felt very reverent.
“Brilliant”, she cooed, “now I believe you need a name for this movie…what is it? she asked….Timeless Love, Romance and Flowers, Everlasting Nuptials, Love and Inspiration, Beautiful flowers, How the flowers show me how to love, Adventures in enjoying self-love and peace… Whatever, come up with a title for your film that makes you feel good”.
We noticed the difference as we took a nice deeper breathe.
She went on. Her voice seemed to drop a tone and become softer, quieter. Out of no where, a timeless bond unfolded.
“Smile from your heart… and imagine a flower that makes you smile from your heart… notice the one that comes to you…the more you notice, the more the flower smiles at you from your heart…. the more you smile, the more the information and the energy in that flower in your heart creates the smile…perhaps giving you something that you need right now…perhaps….I wonder what is it?… that’s right.
Perhaps you notice yourself feeling the difference already…maybe you feel reverent, compelled, riveted or entranced by the beauty of the flower in your heart…maybe
And as you feel this , perhaps, you are ready give thanks for the endless giving of love…. towards you….that’s right the images of affection, tenderness, patience, calmness, accommodation, empathy, sensuality, romance, nurturing, caring, and enjoyment all pointed at you, smiling at you… feeling to you…that’s it… just stay in that place, remain there…..stay there….that’s right.
She continued to guide, we continued to follow. We felt safe and comfortable in her hands…
“Notice the difference, notice the difference….notice the difference” she purred….”Perhaps you feel warmth in your body or some other sensation as you receive and absorb each picture… one after the other deeply, totally… wholly you remain wide open as you freely receive these images”.
“Imagine this now, you, watching a film of someone you do not like…you know the one…. the one you have been avoiding, are angry with are, fearful of, or grieving about, maybe worried about…notice who that person is”….
…”as you do, perhaps you feel ready to share the flower in your heart with this person…..offer it to them….notice how different they are as they willingly receive it, notice how you both feel….better…a vibrating maybe light, whatever….just notice it”…
“that it now….maybe you feel and outpouring of thanks to this person for being there… for giving you the greatest opportunity to give a loving response”…
“Giving thanks for the outpouring of love, affection, tenderness, patience, calmness, accommodation, empathy, sensuality, romance, nurturing, caring…being shared…following each other….that’s it… those most mesmerizing feelings… perhaps, perhaps, perhaps… two or three times a day, this soft realisation becomes even clearer. Maybe first thing in the morning, last thing before you go to bed and some other relaxed time during your day… smile… no one else need know why. Into me I see is, your intimate heart space”.
“Perhaps imagine now allow yourself to breathe a little more deeply and give yourself permission to exaggerate those feelings. Why not, no one is here but you…. exaggerate the affection, tenderness, patience, calmness, accommodation, empathy, sensuality, romance, nurturing, caring, and enjoyment”
“imagine going back to the flower in your heart…see that picture…notice the giving and receiving between you and the flower….. keep noticing until you do not know who is giving or receiving… it all becomes one”….
Yes that’s right now…
at the breathtaking beauty… you sense the accumulation of those feelings, outpouring… perhaps you feel tingly…perhaps something else… where you are is an outpouring…yes that’s right…. maybe it’s like you are giving thanks for being able to caress, being able to be stroked, to be touched in the way…that’s it, giving and receiving…. it’s an outpouring….. take all your time to see that… that’s right. and perhaps both hearts are fully committed to feelings of affection, tenderness, patience, calmness, accommodation, empathy, sensuality, romance, nurturing, caring, and enjoyment you also become aware of a huge smile beaming over your face, coming through all of your body”…
“In a moment you will come back to where you are…. perhaps, you may carry back with you all the feelings of affection and joy, or maybe peace. Whatever you bring back, you will be safe, better than before to you and others and be able to continue with your life as it’s meant to be….unfolding in it’s perfection”
Give thanks and come back now….
