Summer Time Flowers: It’s time to celebrate with each other!

Beloved Flower Lover,

Summer is the hottest season for us here in London.

It’s an exciting time. It’s a time to go beyond.

We see all sorts of amazing flowers and enjoy them for giving and receiving from the heart.  And it’s a time to go beyond the spring where we planted new ideas and to actually make them happen.

It’s also a time for embracing and holding ourselves and others in love, joy and inspiration. It is the time for the heart to go beyond the spring time of starting new things. It’s a time for maturing the emotional warmth and contact with each other. Feeding each others internal fires of inspiration and pleasure in our most intense way. It is a time to partake in the buzz and excitement of life at it’s most intense.

It’s an exciting time. It’s a time to go beyond.

It’s a code of action where we are more naturally more gregarious and outward going, forming new relationships and in the spirit of enthusiasm to enjoy outdoor pursuits. The invisible force that creates everything thing is at highest, most intense.

It’s an exciting time.It’s a time to go beyond.

Summer is a season of maturing our relationship with ourselves and others with love, peace and compassion. It’s a time when plants and creatures of all kinds, enjoy the long days and warm nights. The sap in the plant is at its most highest and all are at their most active and productive. It’s a time to go beyond the idea of growing and changing. Its’ time to enjoy the fruits of our labour.

It’s an exciting time.It’s a time to go beyond.

For us, it is a time of ‘doing’, of achieving our goals and fulfilling the plans as set out in the spring. To rebirth. It is the time to connect with those you love and love you. To connect back to what loves and supports you and to celebrate that.

It’s an exciting time. It’s a time to go beyond.

The element of summer is fire, reflecting the brilliance, illumination and strength of the sun at the height of the summer. To tune into the wisdom of the sun and be guided to spread the sunshine of your wisdom all around.

Enjoy the summer. Enjoy. It’s a time to go beyond.

The Team,

The London Flower Lover
