Beloved Flower Lover,
Everything means something and these flowers remind us of something. We stood looking at the design and it became clear. It was a Champions Torch, so we have named it as such. Our floral champion torch for you.
We used the vegetable and bedding plant called the ornamental cabbage which like anything, comes in many varities. We have seen Ornamental cabbages with marvellous frilly leaves, in shades ranging from washy pink to beetroot to deep purple, together with larger ornamental kale. So we created and created and created our own unique floral gift.
So what does this mean to be a Champion? We wondered, curious, open, happy to go below the usual descriptions as we enjoyed the richness of possibilities that confronts.
As the sun rises, the warmth pours out. There is a clear sky. There are no clouds now. It’s another day and there can be replenishment. So we remain open to this inflow of warming enrichment. Ready, open and prepared to take the journey.
This enrichment may come from great personal discipline, or perhaps the discipline of circumstance. What ever it might be, the discipline has enabled both a receptivity of mind as well as the ability to tune the receptivity to the enormous potential of the hidden aspect of the Champion from within.
Wisdom and healing arise.
A great degree of self containment or self reliance, or what some may judge as restraint is part of the Champion’s life. It expresses as the ability to remain steadfast and in contact with one’s own inner power despite the adversities and changes of life. Like a mountain with gold in it’s depths, the Champion may be able to exist un-moving within change, with treasure within of themselves very apparent.
The Champion considers the treasures of the spirit and their culture discovered which enables the possibility of successfully undertaking difficult projects or tasks.
The Champion, takes the opportunity to extend into the world. This opens the possibility of good fortune and allows a meeting with the new.
The Champion allows him or herself to be nourished by what has been found, and to be nourishing with friends. Spending time with them in relaxed surrounding face to face, online or in what ever way. Sharing that inner and worldly wealth. The Champion like a mountain, is self sustained, allowing trees, animals and people to live on its slopes.
We loved the way Dr Jeff Spencer and others like Serena or Dr Lin talked about performing as a Champion when it counted.
We selected these Champions and coaches of Champions to share because they have responded to circumstances beyond their control which called a halt to any progress. They recognised the situation and learnt how to wait until there is a change which favoured further advance. This, our floral Champion Torch has been created to reflect this process of conserving power.
