Hiya, how you doing with the heart based flower experiment?

Beloved Flower Lover,

London is looking glorious.

Autumn is stunning. It’s still quite warm and the nights are getting darker earlier. We are wrapping up in slightly warmer clothes a little more and stewing and brewing in our juices!

Our hearts are singing in harmony, despite the challenges of the time and because of all of that we decided to put things in order in our environment.

Simply by looking around us, looking back and checking in with you. We knew it was time to see how easy it has been for you to practice the heart based flower experiment and experience that we talked about in our post on August 26th. How have you used the power of your own heart?

Curious!

We have stepped away from the soft and squishy image of the heart today and looked instead at empirical heart research. Two clients reported family members with heart problems and because of that,  they had said that they had had to come to terms with heart health.

Perhaps your heart health depends on how you understand what it is and how it functions. So we looked at how it operates. And looked at our own work around heart based floristry.

According to empirical researchers it is more than a blood pump. It’s an intelligence that has been found to have four functions.

The functions are as follows and in no order of importance. Neurological. The heart has a huge nervous system that sends messages straight to the brain. Those messages change from unorganised to organised when they are focused on feelings like calm, comfort, care, love, happiness and love.

It’s a bio-phsycial organ that manages blood pressure in every cell of the body. It’s a hormonal gland that creates oxytocin, the love and bonding with others hormone.

It’s also an electrical organ, creating and sending electrical signals stronger than the brain. These signals broadcast as far as  3-4 feet around our physical bodies. They transmit the messages of our feelings. They send out the vibration, the energy of those emotions and the attitudes that we have. All of these functions change when we feel overwhelmed, anger, grief, sadness, fear, or worry. They also shift when we choose to feel a calm, comforting oasis of feelings like optimism, wonder, kindness, love, joy, care. They alter when we immerse ourselves in feelings of compassion appreciation and care for ourselves and others.

From what we have noticed from our own experiment its a process. It’s an experience you choose to go to daily. It’s a practice and sometimes opening up to others in this experiment affirms ourselves.

So, how have you been able to allow the situations which normally upset you to be the cause of feeling love, peace, joy and happiness from your heart? what place have your reached? How have you relaxed and let go of mental tightness?

Maybe just today take a day off from mentally trying. Why not?

Be honest because it matters and means that you are appreciating yourself and are open to enjoying the sweetness of who you are.

p.s. perhaps you might like to revisit the earlier post  inviting you to enjoy the  heart based experiments:  https://thelondonflowerlover.wordpress.com/2013/08/26/would-you-be-open-to-join-us-in-an-experiment-about-flowers-about-our-hearts-intentions-and-so-much-more-the-invitation-is-there/

p.s.

The Institute of HeartMath is an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. Personal coherence, also known as psychophysiological coherence, refers to the synchronization of our physical, mental and emotional systems. It can be measured by our heart-rhythm patterns: The more balanced and smooth they are, the more in sync, or coherent, we are.

Global coherence refers to the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of the greater community of human beings, while acting in concert with their own hearts, each other and nation to nation in harmony with our living planet. HeartMath believes coherence on a grand scale is highly achievable when large numbers of people focus their heart intelligence on a common goal.

    • Ohhhhhhhhh what a beautifully expressed comment beloved.

      Candia you remind us through the energy in your words that we are all one. This beauty of the dusky plums of autumn flowers set against the bright vivid green backdrop shows us ourselves. As we submerge our eyes into this, like the way we sink into your energetic expression of loving words we can enjoy this place of being one with all.

      Are we the love we talk about or that flower, who is beholding who? Or are we more Candia?

      We really value the deep consideration and appreciation as you acknowledge us all. Thank you for your comments
