Beloved Flower Lover,
“Just had a bath in water with rose petals”, she said and, “I hugged myself and told myself that I love me”……
Treating ourselves as precious as we have a bath with rose petals triggered us to submerge ourselves into how water, words and perhaps flowers can be apart of our love life in a very personal way. Yes the sort of self care, that love life which really is about embracing ourselves just as we are.
How we talk about each other affects us more deeply than you might know. What we say about ourselves may have even deeper impacts on ourselves than we normally notice.
Through the 1990′s, Dr. Masaru Emoto conducted a series of experiments observing the physical effect of words, prayers, music and environment on the crystalline structure of water. Emoto employed photographers to take pictures of water after being exposed to the different variables and subsequently frozen so that they would form crystalline structures. The results formed the basis of much discussion about how thoughtful we may choose to be with our words so they act as a benediction within our lives.
Water Before Prayer Water After Prayer
After observing these results, Dr. Emoto went on to type out different words, both positive and negative in nature, and taped them to containers full of water. The results were as follows:
“Thank you” “Love and Appreciation”
As you can tell, the water stamped with positive words is symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing.
Now if you are reading this post on the London Flower Lover you probably already knew that positive and negative thinking have a major impact on the surrounding environment. That concept is relatively easy to grasp, but this extremely tangible evidence of it is extremely revealing. If the words and thoughts that come out of us have this effect on water crystals, it could be a matter of life or death just to think about what kind of effect words have on ourselves.
This experiment was repeated many times. For an example with “thank you” and “you fool” in German. The people on the teams who took the actual photographs of the water crystals did not understand the German for “you fool”, and yet we were able to obtain exactly the same kind of results in the different crystal formations based on the words used.
Change your thoughts, change our world…could also have been the title of this post, because it wakes us up to that fact. And now maybe combining loving words about ourselves and others with the honouring effects of surrounding yourself with beauty could boost you far more than you know now.
And yes, giving and receiving those flowers creates a genuine ripple of change that is like you. Perfect. So we are really glad for the lady who inspired us to research into water, words and flowers because we have softened and cherished ourselves even more.
How comfortable does this make you feel, what opportunities does it open up for you? how might you enjoy the love you have for yourself?
Thank you for connecting so deeply in this space of love, thank you so much.
