Beloved Flower Lover,
We are in the business of presenting the best of ourselves to the world. We love to see beauty, joy and happiness. We share in it and spread love that way.
But, but but… we hear you say…
Sometimes it’s also important to acknowledge that we are not all Facebook ready. That the flowers are wilting and …..well you can fill in your story here.
It’s Bank Holiday in the UK this weekend and we have already seen lot’s of stunning posts. Yet when we have conversations with people, they talk about what’s really going on behind the scenes.
The box of medicine, the lack of sexual passion, the lack of money, the lack, the lack, the lack….. and more of the lack……
They show us their doubts in themselves, when they feel they may have been the cause of something terrible, where they want to change something important, when they just are in the plain old deep freeze of denial….we listen quietly.
Floristry is about real people, real lives, real love. And that means knowing they are much more than what they present….so let’s take our time on this journey….together!
Some of us are posting gorgeous happy pictures on Facebook. And behind the scenes really struggling with health and so much more.
Well, you if you are regulars here, you know that at our heart we are interested in transformation and using beauty for that. Hence the Flowers .
This set of photos are really composed for those who want to do something differently. They know they have invested in being miserable and they can see what the result is. Now they may want to explore giving thanks for the real hard core challenges in our lives.
Yes, they know about the whirlpools of emotions. The shocks, the horrors, the reluctance to move on, from reluctance and the losses. The unrecognised shocks and so much more.
Now they are interested in exploring a different approach. Even if its an experiment.
These pictures are for the challenges that give us the chance to go deeper and recall who we really are.
These flowers are for those challenges, those things we don’t want to talk about. For those situations that we did not ask for and want to ignore, deny, fight, bargain with or just begin to start talking about after being shocked into silence.
We have created these to help you to rest, reflect and digest where you are at.
Yes we are into ‘Creative Conversations’.
Using ‘Creative Conversations’ can help us to figure out what is eating at us. To find out what we are hungry for. ‘Creative Conversations’ using flowers and vegetables both give us the chance to ‘digest’ and ‘convert’ that energy of joy and beauty. Plus the good minerals and chlorophyll are turned into physical power that can help us digest our situations.
Now that’s the real reason and power behind smiling as one is really feeling the hardship of the challenge. For giving thanks for the difficult, challenging parts of our lives that we sometimes want to hide. They can help us to retrieve our own energy, which we can then take to make a decision to turn a situation around from it’s current direction. But only if you are interested to experiment with it. Not pushing this at all. It’s a suggestion, that’s all.
This tip comes to us from all the spiritual traditions around the world as a truism. Yes, truisms that go back as far as the Pert Em Hru. We hear them from all sorts of people around us and just smile as we share.
Trusims like Peace, and Oneness enable us to create safe, peaceful spaces. An environment where we can learn from those challenges.
Flowers and vegetables are a superb gentle part of soothing anyone’s ‘creative conversation tool kit’ . Helping you, us, practise smiling and exploring your own appreciation of ‘really uncomfortable situations’, using the universal principles of peace and oneness. Yes, they are guides as you, we feel back into becoming at peace with the ‘whole’ of your being.
Show up at your whole gorgeous self and enjoy the fire of feeling the passion of being so alive!
We love you,
The London Flower Lover
