Day 2: Self Care Bootcamp Using Flowers

Beloved Flower Lover,

Take a deep, cleansing, relaxing breathe and allow a smile to come across your face. Wonderful, you have completed day 1, now it’s day 2 of your self care journey.

As you know, this is called the 21-Day Self Care, Self love, Self Pleasure Bootcamp because it takes approximately 21 days of consistent focus to create a new habit. It takes far longer to break an existing habit, however, which is about 90 days. We decided to start with the 21 day programme, encouraging us to focus on inner joy, inner beauty and inner happiness. The source of wealth and health in all we will for ourselves and others.

We are suggesting that you use flowers as a way to help you to guide,direct and steer the energy in your imagination. The imagination is our personal tool that is guided by our willingness to allow it to play. We suggest you use flowers for that playfulness. Choose ones that you love as a way to help you to connect up to your inner joy, beauty and happiness. And as you do this, notice how it begins to melt away any frustration in your life. Well done.

Quick Recap

We had invited you to list out 21 things that you adore to do that reflects joy,beauty and happiness. Things that make you tingle just for you.We then invited you to put them into an order and begin to action them. Keep a diary and then come back here often and share with the community so you can get positive reinforcement.

Very Important Secret Tip:

If you feel that you need resources, like people, money, or time, and you feel that they are lacking at the moment, we suggest that you feel the feeling of them done first for the next 21 days instead. Do this as a way of you building up the energy for them first. 

 Our Team feedback:

Well, we went out and about throughout Chelsea today and found some great classic floral books by Jane Packer. On an individual level, we each found a film, two key books, and got some pink roses as part of our individual list of 21 self care,self love,self pleasure activities.

The film was, Eat, Pray, Love: a journey of self love, The books, Bridget Jones Diary , and 50 Shades of Grey.

Later we looked at Marie TV, who supported the keep going approach to connecting to passion.  Then after a full day, soaked our feet in magnesium flakes after being on our feet all day long.

Next step: Day 2 Self Care Exercise

Ready again to engage, we invite you to answer these four self care questions.

  1. What actions do I do that no longer serve me?
  2. What actions do I do that have never served me?
  3. What actions am I not taking that would serve me?
  4. What actions that I can take that I have never taken, that would serve me?

Take a deep, letting go breathe. Write your answers. Then  review the list, doing your best to see it as separate from you.  When you are ready, interview this part of you.

What do you believe you are gaining from each of the four answers?

Write down what ever comes to you. It is perfect.

Excellent. Just ponder and allow that insight to feed your imagination. Be sure to have something beautiful around you. Flowers, clothing, a photo of someone, music, candles, essential oils, crystals, knitting, painting, sewing…the list is as long as  there are people on the planet. Surround yourself with anything that you alone link to self care.

The extent to which you see results is of course entirely up to you. Show up everyday, complete your 21 days of joy, beauty and happiness, jot down what you notice, and the sky is the limit as to how much improvement you can see in just three weeks. If you don’t manage it, that’s perfect too, just pace yourself. It’s all about self care which is really self compassion. Again, this is a primer for your uniqueness to show up in it’s most lovely way. So we will for you the best, and see you tomorrow.
