Perhaps use Flowers and Tapping to help you to love and accept yourself rather than stressing out with sugar and alcohol!

Beloved Flower Lover,


Herukhuti cut challenges The London Flower Lover

Alcohol, sugar, mmmm this is bringing up so much… how can we cut with stress?

A stress pattern about money, health, relationships, family life, the world community…


How can we step into another pattern of self-care?

Well let’s look at this drinking culture .

Britain is among the worst countries in the world for binge drinking, according to a new report by the World Health Organisation. The research examined 196 countries and placed the UK 13th highest for heavy drinking – worse than countries such as Estonia, Ukraine, Belarus and Hungary.

In total, 28 per cent of Britons were classed as having had episode of heavy drinking in the previous month – almost twice as much as the global average, of 16 per cent.For overall alcohol consumption, Britain was 25th highest, the research found, above that of Bulgaria and Kazakstan and far higher than the global average.

So assuming that all this consumption is linked to how people feel about themselves. What do we do? Or how might we choose to be?

Well we might be able to nurture another pattern within ourselves that we direct towards ourselves. Perhaps providing a simple way to tap the power within. An inspirational pathway to creating a real answer to this. Maybe comforting self with the natural powers of the feminine. The things we take for granted sometimes. Passion, nature and beauty.

We keep looking to nature and the Nature Arts to reflect back to us other ways that we can express patterns of being, that take care of us all. An integrative approach responding to the practise of nourishing and nurturing happiness.

It can’t be about faulting or chastising as that can only take us so far. Perhaps we can remain open to find a coaching process that is self nurturing, and is centred around a self-care attitude. And maybe, noticing how relaxing flowers might make your feel, whilst using other techniques to reduce the stress in your body may be part of that process.

With that in mind we invite you to settle down, take a deep breathe and take five peaceful minutes to go inside the mind’s eye to look at something beautiful. And breathe again. Yes breathe again. And again. And again. It will recharge your batteries. Just slowing down and imagining scenes of sublime tranquility.

Again, look at nature to stop you feeding your stress and instead settle down into the natural space of peace, which is already in you for just five minutes. It will be a complete system reboot.

Cutting with stress actually requires a little bit of education.  It’s worth learning about the food and drink we injest, whilst we rebalance ourselves with feelings that can rebalance the emotions. So rather than our energy (chi, prana) being directed by fear, worry, anger, grief, or sadness patterns , we can learn to befriend those very same energies with compassion. And then because we understand what they actually represent, we can choose to be no longer be in a war with good and bad, loss and gain, heaven or hell. We can  live from a place of peace,from the inside out. Again, nature can be a reminder to purposely make that a focus. In tiny ways, in big ways. It’s our decision.

It’s not about getting more stuff, it’s about knowing how to use flowers as a stress reliever. Looking at beauty is often a way to nourish yourself. To nurture yourself. To feed yourself. It’s a small decision, to let go of old patterns that do not care for you and do something different that empowers yourself. So slowly, you may want to give yourself what you need. To help to restore and re-shift the body, by acknowledging the nurturing feelings sent towards yourself that make all the difference.

With all that in mind we have been creating floral jewelry and welcomed all the smiles generated by something so sublime. Those smiles reflect back to us, peace and relaxation. A theme for an autumn self empowerment programme we thought….and the thinking went further.

To release stress might also mean examining other parts of our lifestyles and releasing the stressors on the body like ‘refined – sugars’, which according to some is as lethal as tobacco and alcohol.  Tobacco and alcohol are perfect examples of obvious body stressors, but so is sugar many are saying.  A (large) spoonful of sugar can prove fatal, a leading doctor in the US has warned, as it can have the same effect on the body as poison when eaten in large quantities. And a paediatric endocrinologist from the University of California claims that high doses of sugar, (whether it’s crystallised, in a corn syrup or granulated), turn into ‘toxins’, which lead to heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure and diet-related diseases like type-2 diabetes.

We will always invite you to welcome more beauty from nature into your universe. We also invite you to welcome other images of peace and tranquility into your surroundings. Especially for the rough days, when you are not enjoying life much.We embrace it all whislt you breathe in and out feelings of calm composure.  That’s how we let go of the grief.

And it’s an ideal thing to do in Autumn. To accept all the parts we rejected in love.
