Your Floral Muse is here-discover how she teaches how waiting,destruction, chaos and loss opens you up to the inspiration of own beauty: Part 1

Beloved Flower Lover,

“She is here”…

He smiles at his beautiful muse as she sleeps.

He sees the break of dawn through the curtains.

How long it was since he had become awakened? One hour, two?

“My eyes are a bit sticky from sleeping next to her ….Funny how I didn’t realize how much time passed by since the last time my mornings where immersed in enjoying her reflection of beauty…I am so glad I got her the flowers she loves….I am so glad I made my space clean and ready…. just for her”….

The Peony The London Flower Lover

All cultures acknowledge her and make themselves available  to her…the Muse. In Greek mythology the Muse is described as a creative spirit that gives art, poems, plays or any other creative work and ideas to it’s lover i.e. you.

She only comes in liminal spaces

Liminality is the in-between moments, the space in between an incident in a story and your resolution. Liminality is often a period of discomfort, of waiting, and of transformation. It’s the time where your characters’ old habits, beliefs, and even personal identity disintegrates. Yours, ours, mine, his, hers. It is not where you are going and not where you have been.

She finds you when you are in the bath, shower, in the car, on a train, in a hotel, in a coffee shop, washing clothes, cleaning the home, choosing from the various flowers available or doing the dishes. It’s like going to the beach as it’s a liminal space: not the sea, not the land.

The muse is beautiful because she is change. She is your drama, your thrills, your fear, your judgement.

She is unknown judgments, unfamiliar fears, and all of this is how she holds you in her mystique.

She invites you to let them all go….

You have to make creative space for her in your life or she will find another lover of ideas and creation.

Michael Jackson described his creative Muse as the voice of God, if he wasn’t ready with his pen to take down the song at the moment it she was giving, then she, God would take it away and give it to Prince.

Make space for her.

Making space for her can be created by getting bored with what you are doing. Become bored with your story. Allow yourself to become bored, acknowledging space that you know are aware of. Know that a lot is happening during  your boredom stories. And its a bit  like is the space between the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents and his becoming Batman in order to protect others. Or the liminal space where Frodo’s long, slow journey to Mordor. Liminal space is the period between Elizabeth Bennet’s realization she likes Mr. Darcy and the moment she agrees to marry him.

Each one of us has a story where we change and change happens through liminal space, this middle time of transformation.

The word liminal means “threshold,” the door between one season of life and the next, the time between the wound and healing, the period between childhood and adulthood.

This liminal time is here…..

Make space for to  welcome her. She is here
