Beloved Flower Lover,
Which sort of gift is your father to you? What sort of gift is the father figure in your life? What masculine qualities do you admire? what masculine qualities do you wish to encourage in your life?
We have been considering flowers for Father’s day and decided to consider the main masculine archetypes as our start point. We used them as our compass point so we could really clarify our bearings. The archetypes we looked at are, the King, the Priest, the Sage, the Warrior and the Lover.
As we considered the King, we noticed a consistent theme about his strength of character to unite people’s. Enemies and friends bonded under one guiding theme of peace as he rules the kingdom with his wife, his Queen as his equal partner. He brings order, harmony, optimism and safety into the world and acts as a stabilising force. Kind hearted knowing that there is nothing to fear. He encourages joy, happiness and peace. His kingdom changes as he brings peace to challenging situations in his kingdom.
The priest looks inwardly and upwardly as he focuses on enlightening others by facilitating the space between the personality and the spiritual. He is not pushed or pulled around by what’s going on in the world and offers that space for nurturing the relationship between the personality and the spiritual.
The Sage also has a focus on the inward and upward world, however he adds to this by manifesting this wisdom in the world. He is practical. He is a doer of those wisdom’s. So the wisdom he has channelled he puts into action because he chooses to. He is wise and harmonious because he chooses to live a life on earth to which he is connected to.
Warrior: He is a protector never an invader and makes you feel safe, emotionally and physically. He challenges his own self to ensure that he protects all. He disciplines himself more than he disciplines others. By those actions he has a major impact on others.
Lover: His heart and wisdom are joined by the urge to bond ,unite and engage in sensuality with no shame and appreciate beauty in all her forms. He can be a husband, a father, a company leader, he can appear anywhere. He has great respect for the feminine.
We wonder which masculine qualities do you see in your life? what male energies are you surrounded by? who do you want to honour today? Who do you want to be surrounded by?
We invite you to use the flowers of your choice to honour that Father figure and enjoy the peace they offer in your life.
This is your Father’s Day.
The London Flower Lover
