Beloved Flower Lover,
…..Well what would you suggest if someone came to you and said this?
…Huston we have a problem!
O.K….before we begin to hear your inspiration and before we share our own inspiration behind this taboo topic, we thank you for feeling us. Yes, if you are new here lets tell you who we are. We are a group of florists inspired by the emotion of life. We enjoy getting in tune with your heart and finding ways to solve relationship problems of all kinds. So that’s why we can write what we do. That’s what fuels our floral creativity.
We are excited about having this time with you. Thank you for using your own time to ‘like’, ‘share’ and ‘comment’ because you don’t have to. It’s a choice. You are beautiful. So thank you!
Ok let’s move on
Can you relate to the headline? Perhaps you too have come through something similar. Maybe you feel deeply about being involved with your mother who does not appreciate you in the way you expect to be.
Maybe you know you cannot ignore this. So keep reading.
The story continues…
“Get real about Mothers Day”……”She nit picks me, she criticizes me, and she does not appreciate me….”
Tight jawed with eyes wide open, expecting to be told off for the words flowing almost like a whisper out of the mouth…. with hands moving slowly with tense shoulders , more words came forth. “And I have to get her flowers just because someone who I don’t even know says it’s Mother’s day?”
…..the breath was heavy
our hearts breathed,
our nostrils opened up, as we breathed out the love of the universe and when it was full we breathed another long slow breath inwards right into the heart and let it go again… we exhaled in silence…..awakenend we listened to the unfolding…
Rigid, unyielding, stiff, the guilt gripped even stronger it seemed… we continued to breathe more sweetly and listened….then as we breathed we reached for a cool drink of water, rolled our shoulders backward, stretched upwards, yawned and offered a glass of water. It was gently accepted. Beautiful.
“Do you really think I want to send her flowers when my heart is fluttering with frustration, irritation, hurt? do you?
Uneasily watching this liquid lava pouring out of the mouth and noticing the power force of that breathe, we readjusted to give it no opposition. We gave space for…
and we agreed
We really wanted to understand. This heat, this passion.Would it burn everyone around, leaving scars or would it become the heat needed for the phoenix.
We went inwards into our own memories. We partially identified with this mood. Remembering our own challenges with our mothers. Opening and remembering how that energy felt, especially coming from a ‘happy do dah’, Brady bunch’ sort of family, who might not want to be aligned with socially unacceptable feelings.
We looked at each other. Each one us in the team have issues going on in the inside. So we felt the deep emotional connection. Honestly. All was well. We felt we were taking the journey together.
May we ask you a question?
A nod of acceptance was given.
Updating ourselves for the time of today….
…Perhaps, the more you explore the importance of your feelings towards love and towards self love, then perhaps more of those feelings might unlock a deep love that overflows beautifully. From yourself to others. Perhaps!
A slow silence was expressed.
….Maybe the more you relax about your strong feelings and give yourself a break, the more you’ll realise that peace and happiness is your natural state and that you can tap into that natural place whenever you think about her.
Another slow silence was expressed.
mmmmm possibly things will happen and unfold in loving ways that you could not plan…..maybe.
You are beautiful. Clearly the sort of person who loves yourself enough to want the best for yourself. The sort of person who gets it. Who knows that the more you love your best intention behind you’re the part of you that does not want to connect with her, plus learning about the best intention behind the part of you that does want to connect with her, then things can change. Maybe the more feel that they both have the very same intention , then you will see the coming together. Mmmmm
Choose flowers after that process and then notice what happens.
The air hung with possibilities….endless….endless possibilities
Feeling beautiful, right now, just as you are, a smile emerged.
