Beloved Flower Lover,
The whole room relaxes as she put the last vase of flowers up…… every one breathes out in relief.
She has arrived. The Winter Solstice. That time of year when every part of her is wide open and ready to be impressed with the some times awkward joy of desire.
She invites you to take off any pressing pressure to succeed… to look good or to perform even to your own ridiculously silly standards. She invites you to feel the fire of pleasure now.
Who are you doing that for she asks?
You are not on the line. You do not have to prove your importance to her. Take the pressure off as she asks you to plant the seed of what ever you desire deeply into her. The desire may be one foot, or one hundred feet tall. It’s perfect. Your desire does not have your self worth riding on it. Pleasing yourself does. Be quiet now.
She is here for the next four days.
The London Flower Lover
…. what is the greatest floral gift you that can give to yourself?
It is the gift of reflection. Forget new year resolutions for now, look over your shoulder and see how far you’ve come in 12 months…the good, the bad and the missed opportunities… this is the intentional gift of solstice.
The wreaths are up. The flowers are done. The candles are burning….immerse yourself.. . now…. turn inward and see how even the bad or missed opportunities can become your gateway to peace.
What promise are you going to make to yourself this solstice? Not really a resolution, but what loving commitment you could make to yourself, that will inhance how you look after yourself in 2016?
