Beloved Flower Lover,
It was last sunday afternoon. It was the 3rd of November at about 12.50p.m. It may even have been 1.00 p.m. (g.m.t). Whatever it was, it was also the time when we were just relaxing and imagining how best to welcome a dear, cherished, precious friend. That’s when the picture came to us. Let’s offer her some bright yellow cheery flowers.
Dancing and singing in our minds. Anticipating what she might bring this time when she arrived…we tingled.
Our skin flush already knowing that she would bring her happy repertoire to us with much willingness. She always made us feel good. Why? Well she touched us in our most feminine lady parts.
A really good looking woman, with a lovely family, lot’s of friends, great singer, with a happy marriage. We loved basking in her glow. Receptive to us, she would always tell us that we were just looking at a mirror of ourselves. That whatever we saw in her we were really seeing in ourselves. We would let that sink in and absorb into ourselves as we let it sink in and absorb into ourselves.
She would talk to us about how she used her energy of happiness to create her life and as long as we tapped into our imagination that we too could enjoy what we enjoy. It was like her eyes stroked us tenderly as she looked at us with a genuine sincerity we felt in our own heart of hearts. Hence the girl crush and blushing.
Having had our own really bad days. Our own bouts of depression, sadness, confusions, cynicism, we were prepared to still offer her the simple yellow flowers in a vintage style vase, with a little yellow bow. We recalled how she would remind us that it’s was never really about the external beauty even though it plays a part in attraction. That it’s really all about how we see ourselves first, especially on the bad hair days. When the clothes don’t fit, the children are frustrating, the partner… the money… the job… the travel to work… and so on and so on and so on.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And it’s our imagination, our inner tool that we have that we can use to create those pictures where we see ourselves choose to behold our own loveliness.
Can you see why were were enchanted? inspired by her? especially when we did not meet external standards of beauty. Can you imagine how reassuring it felt to a team especially as we felt ignored, or forgotten, invisible or openly described as other than beautiful? Just hearing that clear explanation of the term ‘ beauty is in the eye of the beholder’, let us use our own eyes differently. It that mattered to us. It sent a calming message to us which helped us change in our team. And maybe few others in this world.
So yes, we have shown up to visit with her before looking and feeling like a physical wreak, knowing full well that she would look fabulous. But that she would still be making us feel very welcomed. And knowing that she was going to be around for the next month maybe two. We beamed.
As ladies we talked everything. And we do mean everything. Anything from how to be affectionate in a boring relationship, to feeling frustrated about sensuality when you don’t feel like you have the right body, to what is joy, to why being romantic with yourself is more important that just getting through a too do list and why it’s important to practise experiencing pleasure if you do not have a partner. What a giggle!
We have seen what her energy can do. From produce babies, create happy marriages after depression, create success at work, bring in money, money, money after debt, debt, debt, and so much more!
Eating cake, her favourite fruit mangoes and drinking peppermint tea, we were creating an energy that summoned up relaxation even more deeply than ever before. Our bodies let go of tension. Sometimes we did not even realise that that was what we were doing. Recovering our calm in the face of those negative messages about women and well, life!
She was every woman.
The woman you see, the woman who is invisible. The sister, mother, wife, friend, cousin, auntie, niece, she was able to awaken , arouse and direct our understanding of why energizing our own sexual attraction towards ourselves passions for attraction that we can enjoy for ourselves…she teaches us how to enjoy femininity in any shade, size or age. No woman is outside of it. She is creativity itself.
So with all of that, we were really wondering what could we do more to welcome her.
