Perhaps craft a Love Self Story as your new normal: Order flowers today

Beloved Flower Lover,

“You know what, why not use flowers to talk about the stress of the New Years party”

We florists were inspired by her story.We were drawn inwards to her heart. Her love story. Invisibly we shared aconite, ignatia and arnica between us.We listened and smiled a lot at her.

We saw her perk up. This was different. Her body language  changed. The hysterical howling that she described that her person had exhibited at the 2013 New Years party was all forgotten…her shoulders dropped down, she sighed out. She visibly rested.  Drawn inwards to us. We were all so beautiful.

“Perhaps let’s use the best memories, the blessings you shared, the things you are grateful for first…maybe three or five… and it’s ok if they are random”… she went into another zone as we talked on. She was set up to use another filter, to use another paintbrush to paint the picture of her love life.

“Perhaps let’s use flowers to build the power of your feminine self” we suggested… You know we were really inspired in the studio as we discovered that she was genuinely curious.

“You are here in front of us and it’s our dream fulfilled to run Floral Wellbeing workshops… so with your permission could we do a quick workshop using flowers.”  She nodded gently. “We have been developing ideas around this and… ” she again nodded approvingly. She was waiting for us to say more. We did.

We delivered our workshop in about an hour.The highlights are here.

Snippet from Floral Flourish Wellbeing Workshop 

Be gentle to yourself first. It’s ok because your wellbeing is not dependent on his behaviour…

She was still listening, kinda getting it…

One thing led to another

Flowers came out, scissors, foliage, wire, string, paper, colouring pens, tissue paper, glue, glitter and containers. We put on some Motzart.

We saw her look like an angel as she begun to write. She wrote and wrote and wrote… our workshop flowered.

What is the default of our nature? And how do we use our being to to create? was the question we posed to her…

Inspired by the delicate beauty of the flowers around…she wrote

That love connection we will for ourselves and others, is in fact a default setting. So is he really gone? we posed.

Her eyes blinked, entranced with peace and inspired she wrote, she glued, she drew.

She was being brought to terms with the light of her true nature and others.

We continued on in our floral flourish wellbeing workshopp

…”but we undo our conscious connection when we go into a negative fear drama… “we all do it…

She got out another set of colours and was drawing…we were really enjoying it too and continued with the topic.

“The second we stop holding onto fear of what we believe he should do, is the moment we can open up to fresh feelings of happiness”, we suggested.

“So what’s the arbitrary deal breaker you are using here sweetie? what’s the unforgivable line in your head that if he crosses he is a gonna? Tell yourself not us. We are not here to judge it.”

She smiled and got writing

“now what’s his?”

…”now we are not telling you where it should be…just exploring how it’s arbitrary”…

….”when we are not caught up with the arbitrary line, we can stay in the present peace and joy of life.That’s when fresh thinking comes to you. The moment you will stop trying to resolve it, we can feel uplifted in our hearts.Win,win solutions follow.”

She was all ears. She totally gave herself space on the inside to stop taking her thoughts seriously and instead played with the flowers we gave her. She created a lovely design, created lots of poetry and  drawings. But more importantly she left us smiling again.

She had reflected, digested and cleaned up her feelings about herself and her man.  She had been willing to start small and look at her own fearful images that she brought into the relationship and send all of it into the enlightenment of self love.  To then hold onto her delightful vision of mutual love whilst using the enjoyable inspired ritual of creating simple floral arrangements which we taught her to use to empower her vision of love.  Yes, she could have been any one of us from any part of the world.  Yes, a woman like us, relating to our lovely men today.

Yes, it was a privilege to be part of assisting her prepare the soil for a new garden with the seeds of love and her loveliness.

Thank you from the london flower lover

a  poem from the workshop…

She sat in a garden of her sunny dreams

all accomplished

in the lush garden

she oozed, oozed,oozed happiness

she gave thanks for her blessings

she counted each blessing from the previous times

the garden of all

all the things she had accomplished,

the garden of all she had achieved

in peace

through peace

by peace

this inspiring garden prepared before it began



in the dark, in the light

this garden had the tiniest butterflies called joy, roses called peace, the tiniest elves, fairies and other elementals called jasmine and daffodils

the enrichment of

the soil

the beautiful soil

called love

the tiniest, smallest accomplishments


two, three, four, five…..oh wow they popped out everywhere


well done

she felt her arm reach up,

bend at the elbow

and start patting her back


high light

the luminous light of her high

her luminous light began to glow brighter,

so much, so done, so accomplished

clean sheet for today

recognition of feeling so accomplished

spread around

her gifts

of good fortune

she slept…

the window of sun light was open wide

she took the time to parcel up her old baggage

the invitation to send them all through into that everlasting luminous light was received and warmly accepted

a multitude of doors

full of brilliant light opened up,

good fortune

she followed the bread crumbs in her garden

and moved through it’s beauty


she saw the hooks of old brambles fall of her

gaps appeared

heaviness was released,

holes appeared

dark worries released,

they were well received by the luminous light streaming in through the window,

through the doors

dark worries, heaviness welcomed lovingly into the light


she felt the warmth of light fill all those holes,those gaps


she felt the radiance of sunlight

her smile was even more bright than the brightest she had been



rainbow bridges of light appeared in the garden

he stepped forward with an animal

she smiled

she recognised the animal, the hesitancy

she smiled at the animal and pointed to the window to the doors of


both breathed deeply

this moment was forever

they expanded

the animal was welcomed into the light

never to return

he stood there


arms outstretched

their time for joy had begun…

choose positive energy today

    I love this blog!!!! Simply lovely. Thanks for always blooming in my day.


    • Wow, you make us smile so much. We really do get inspired by real life and enjoy sharing all our creativity, combining flowers, with all these other talents in the team. We give thanks for your appreciation. It’s not really us anyway, we are just listening to The Creator. We give thanks.


    • By the way, we are always looking for tips for how to improve, so are open to receive feedback from you about that. What would you most ideally like to read about? and why? no rush tell us in your own time,in your own way.


    • The reason why we love flowers is because they are able to gives us a connection to nature, to something beyond our, fast-paced environment.

      Colours also make us happier through chromotherapy, which uses the powers of colours to stimulate our emotions.

      Flowers can also make us happy because by bringing us closer on an emotional level to people around us, such as family, friends,partners.

      By smoothing out our agitation and apprehension, we feel lighter, more cheerful, and more inclined to connect with each other.

      Flowers help us connect in relationships by improving the feelings and communication levels amongst us.Thus making a greater contribution to a person’s life.

      Have you ever wondered why flowers are used in social environments? There’s more to flower décor than acting as lovely eye candy. Flowers definitely enhance an event by creating a warm, welcoming ambience among the event participants.

      We love this work and how you appreciate your relationship with flowers. We will for your wellness and abundance!

    • Over the last few days we have been talking to a number of people who confirm that too and really like the idea of learning about that as they participate in flower arranging workshops for themselves. Yes,they are such a simple yet power transmitter of love,peace and joy. Thank you for sharing your magic.

        I LOVE flowers , had a shop myself for a bit .
        The thing I enjoyed , being a creative type, I always wished I could paint, but alas do not have that skill, but with the flowers I found that with the mixing of the colors and composition , every arrangement was a
        mini portrait, always different and always a joy.
        (My shop was called Joie De Vivre )

        Your classes sound wonderful.
        My son lives in England , I shall have to pop in when next I visit ! Happy Wonderful New Year !!!!


      • You sound so wonderful, your work in floristry thrills us here, we will that we do meet you.Thanks for sharing. We look forward to hearing more from you.Say hi to you son!


      • Oh yes, we were thinking about our ‘floral workshops’. We have always known that flowers make people happy and now scientific research proves flower power. University research proving the emotional and behavioural benefits of flowers and plants.

        A Harvard study reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home.

        Rutgers research shows that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behaviour in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. A Texas A&M study demonstrates that workers’ idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants . Another Rutgers study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age. We love to share this in workshops.

        Thanks for you.
