Beloved Flower Lover,
We began to wonder, why should any of our lovely readers want to read about flowers in a blog post? then the rest of the day began to reveal the answer to our judgmental judgment of our work.
“notice the most judgmental thing that you think about, notice the thing you are most ashamed of because it is the lie that is most holding you back”. Martha Beck
“Find the place that you are most ashamed of. Then state the judgment of that thing. The opposite of that statement is the best truth for setting you free right now”.
We came up with a list of the things we were ashamed of and then realised that, if our readers have learnt,
Self compassion and forgiveness
Self honouring and respect
Self worth, all using flowers, then we have done our work.
Is it a lie or is it the truth?
That’s how we started out day, then we got a phone call.
“I have handed in my notice at work… I am following my life purpose?
What began was a conversation about how any adversity you have gone through, bless it because it has brought your knowledge and has become your food. It has helped you to generate energies.
“The flowers open me up”…she said
“when my vase is empty,I miss them”.
“They light up my inner world as well as my external world”…”I do feel like I get some guidance from them”.
She was talking about her flowers.
“I find that I get inspiration from my bouquets, they keeps me grounded…they are thought provoking…It’s when I don’t have them that I notice the difference.
She was on a roll.
“I use to hear my mothers voice say, why are you wasting your flowers? they should be outside”…she paused as she listened to her inner truth.”I normally get them cut price…. to me they give me so much joy, like someone who gives themselves cigarettes or a drink…. I put them into my weekly budget, and now my daughter makes sure that I do that.”
….about to put the phone call on loudspeaker so the rest of the team could listen to her truth,but felt better of it.
“I can do without something else like a bag of crisp or chocolate”…
She seemed to light up, golden in her deep down true feelings.
“everyone who comes here notices the flowers”… “Flowers lift the energy of the room and although my rooms are nicely furnished, you would have thought that guests would have been noticed the furnishing, but it’s the flowers that they comment on.” “They make the room feel good.” “They think I live in Downtown Abbey”
She got past the strongest lie that she used to buy into. Right now as she is is perfect.Her door was open to become who she was meant to be.
“Now my mum loves flowers”
What’s your truth?
