Smile Power- Give anything with a smile and notice what happens- give with flowers and a smile and notice even more -Part 3

Beloved Flower Lover,

Consider this. Yes, we at the London Flower Lover team are all about changing the relationship we have with the creative force already within ourselves. We ask ourselves, where we would be if we did not allow the creative force to guide us.

The creative force has taught us so much about how to still love in the face of real challenges and adversity. A creative force that has so much to share with us. So we want to share. That’s our commitment!

A lot of the early stages in creating flower designs and developing a vision around them has been about letting go of the old ideas and getting more comfortable with the realm of the unknown. Going into the zero space. Creating space for the new to come through.

We have been using flowers to help us consider how we naturally put aside our thinking. There is something beautiful in what we have learnt and wish to share two things that we have opened up to this cycle.

Smile Power

As we said, recently we have been considering how the commitment within the creative force is already apparent-that it is always there. And it’s often at this time of year that we really pay more attention to the commitments within the creation stories that are all around. We say that commitment within the creation story is at the heart of our very life experience. It starts in our heart. Our love.

We consider how when we are a ‘creative commitment ‘that, ‘first there was nothing, then there was something’. We have begun to notice something that goes along with that creative commitment, (and often the giving and receiving of flowers) it’s the smile.

So we now say, “First there was nothing, then a smile”. We get harnessed by that amazing energy held in a smile-the smile gazing at the thing already accomplished. It’s commitment.

Things happen when there is a smile. Subtly, but never less that committed creative force held in that smile guides and directs things to happen.

We notice this as we see people give and receive flowers. Committed to the intention behind the giving and receiving of flowers. (Love, peace, joy, happiness, beauty) People become a light. Lit up, brightly.

We notice that those giving flowers with a smile actually allow other people to open up to a creative flow within them. Even at the saddest moments, this energy is abundant and carries all sorts of messages. We noticed that that smile was in fact like nurturing milk. The smile is an honouring of the space between no more and not yet. Marinating in the time to relish the commitment.

That is what this time is for right now. Smiling as we relishing the commitment to consciously choose differently. Smiling at new choices regarding love, peace, joy, happiness, beauty for ourselves is indeed our crystal ball about the future. The fuel to propel ourselves forward. The wonderful excuses we use to not do so can be the things we choose to clean up during this time period. Perhaps!

For some, it’s a common thing to think that smiling, or giving flowers is a useless thing. And yes, its refined power is a reminder of highest faintest impressions of a first bud, which makes a first step to take of the blinders and be with what is and admit what is without judgment .Pulling our head out of the sand of what is before we recreate what we want.

Being in acceptance of what is rather than wanting to make things happen faster is a key first step. Accepting how things are right now…

Taking of the blinders, examining excuses and old beliefs is where we start if we are losing hope. We don’t smile if we feel like we have no hope. We don’t smile if we do not accept where we really are right now. We either fight smiling or want to work with it.

Smile at yourself as you do this stage. It’s important.

 The team,

The London Flower Lover
