Alternative Valentines: Flowers are information-Caveat: Do not read this unless you have a real dream and passion for yourself. Warning: If you are just mucking around-do not read this article at all.

Beloved Flower Lover,

We are so exicited for you!

We see flowers as information. Meaning, they can help turn on different parts of your brain.  We were reminded about what we mean as we re read our strap line and we

As Florists in London we guide you on how to use your Flowers to avoid neglecting yourself or others. How to use Flowers as beautiful rewards for your accomplishments, as a lovely stress relief after your achievements and as a gorgeous consolation for disappointments. Like Us, Contact Us, Subscribe!

We keep learning and love it. We notice that what we talk about is a little like functional medicine. Its like knowledge is power when you get to grips with  key principles of health and happiness and how flowers might help us take back our energy, focus and our lives.

If you are interested in learning how to enjoy a life of vitality,then you have to have  a broader vision for yourself. Of love, happiness and peace. To know the connection between your dream like and flowers.

We attempt to provide that bridge here and  show you how flowers can help redirect your attention to  the love, peace and joy within yourself and share it with others.

We are not being transient, we are true consistent believers of you. The experience of love, peace and joy. You have to know what you want from your life.What you wnat your life to be about.Until you know that, then you will just drift.

Once you have set out your personal dream.It may be your valentine, then you can set flowers in that context. To live more openly and enjoy love more deeply.

If your personal dream is about love, peace and joy with your valentines  and that is part of your dream life, then you will be open to learn and grow mastery in love.Self love first perhaps and then sharing it.If you are not mastering enjoying love right now, being excellent at loving yoruself and others now, then you might be mucking around! Real stuff

No mystery.

Today, we believe that we all need to re-imagine flowers as information. Flowers are far more than superficial beauty, they are instructions to trigger the beautifying hormones in our lives.Flowers,beauty, caring and sharing are synonymous. and because we find that the hormones that make us feel happy and cared for are triggered. By giving them to yourself, sending them to others, and having them around you send messages to hormones in your body.

Again, decide what your real desire is.Your real passion. What you want your life to be about. Then find a way to immerse yourself in all things love, peace, and joy. If you think you want some feedback  about your current view of love, then you can enjoy the rest of the article. So let’s go on.


Flowers are  more than  simply petals, buds, leaves, they are in fact an instructional control panel. By sending or receiving flowers we feel more cuddly, which triggers  oxytocin,which is a feel good hormone often called the “cuddle hormone”. Oxytocin is released when we feel love, trust and comfort. It can be even more powerful than serotonin. If you need a lift, remember the power of simply spending time with your significant other or family members and friends and sharing something beautiful with them, like flowers.  By being up front about you wanting to grow more love in your life, then you can, you can upgrade your life.

We found this from a wonderful chap called Isaiah McGee and just felt it was in keeping with The London Flower Lover Valentine season. Yes, we do want you to remind yourself about the problem you have but no longer want, or the result ou want and do not have yet.We are assuming that this is about valentine love, so we changed his headline to Top Ten Ways to Sustain Your Resolve for  Love from the New Year and Beyond

  1. Let the Past be the Past… Decide within yourself that your history primarily serves to bring you to your present. Resolve to be present to the Now moment; rather than unconsciously living from your past associations about yourself and life. 9.  Constantly reaffirm… “For every dollar/Pound spent, TEN MORE return! We are always unconsciously subtracting the money spent from the money remaining; whether its deducted from a 20 dollar reserve or two million reserve – we tend to think in terms of subtracting RATHER THAN EXPANSION. Constantly imagine and consider that when money is being spent ten-fold is returning, this shifts the mind out of a fear-based relationship to money. 8. EVERY MORNING to START your day, spend seven minutes identifying the benefits you desire your day to contain. Do this EVERY DAY; it aligns your thought process with the possible rather than the probable. (“I am looking for my day to be filled with … and … and …”) 7. Resolve to release DOUBT … the default assumption you WILL NOT behave outside of currently habituated norms is acquiescing to victim-hood. You are not a victim of how the brain has been wired as you have the ability to re-wire with every thought! 6. Replace self-criticism with self-compassion. Resolve as you are reading this to replace the habit of criticizing your acts or behavior with self-compassion by understanding that the brain is very impersonal; it does things out of conditioned associations, not necessarily out of wisdom or intelligence. This appreciation shifts your relationship with yourself from one of an adversarial nature to that of comradeship with your own being. YOU and your being are best buds! 5.  Love rather than loathe. Steadily increase your outlook for things and aspects to love about yourself rather than focusing on the things that are “wrong.” The more your increase your lookout for things that empower your well-being the more those kinds of elements are compelled into your experience.  4. Change routine. Begin to engage normal, routine behaviors in a different way or order of processing. As you change up the route, wired way of doing simple matters it prepares the brain to be more receptive to new, positive developments to occur. Change the order in which you bathe or shower (start by washing different extremities then the habituated method and dry off in a different order; take a different route (but just as efficient) when participating in routine errands as grocery shopping, the cleaners, etc.). Changing habits changes possibilities! 3. Assume Life is Greater. The brain has a tendency to define life based on what it is exposed to; if you inundate your brain with the News reports, you’ll have a tendency to think the only thing going on in the world is what makes the news (primarily violence and conflict). Limit your brain’s exposure to negativity not out of fear or delusion but out of empowered CHOICE; you are choosing to feed your brain a diet of balanced environments – exercise, contemplation, arts, Nature outings, etc. – the kind of environments that expand your brain’s perception of possibility in the world. 2. Non-participation confidence… demonstrate the confidence to not participate in conversations and activities that commensurate/confirm negativity. Sometimes we gossip or go along with trains of thought at the water-cooler, at church, with industry peers, just to feel a sense of belonging to the group or activity. When belonging itself becomes more valued than what you are belonging to, then you can find yourself “belonging” to ideas, attitudes and processing that interferes with well-being rather than contributing to it. 1. Forgiveness… Decide what you are going to be for. Be for giving to yourself. Be for giving self thoughts that provide peace of mind, be for giving self compassion, be for giving the self release from past pain, hurt and misunderstandings. Be for the joy that informs your actions with an uplifting spirit of action. Be for giving to your self.

Happy New Year… Happy New You!

  1. This one of your best posts yet! Truly inspiring and a ‘Flower Bible’ to live by and dip into each day. I am definitely a disciple! 🙂


  2. I left out the ‘is’. Always a good idea to check before you send! haha


      • Loving you right back! And on a more personal note I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU for introducing me to blogging. It’s one of the best things I have ever done! And if it wasn’t for your help, I might never have started it. Thanks! :)x


      • You are beautiful and blogging really helps the gentle creative spirits grow the seed of an idea, turn it into a bud, then flower as beautifully as you have. We all need someone to just gently show us that our hearts desire is there for a reason and truly can be nourished with just the water of love. That nourishment is our focus, our attention, our commitment to just enjoy what we enjoy despite what others may say. Blogging allows us to feel the flow of our own creativity. Blogging allows us to enjoy the part of us that is enjoyable.We came across this just from working with flowers. When we noticed that some folk were actually hostile to love, or flowers, others were not, some were indifferent. We noticed however that if you follow your inner joy that it helps others. We realised that that is purpose. Not necessarily following some one elses agenda for you, which might be only to serve them, and not include you in any of the fruits. But to go beyond your talent and to lift it with focus, preparation and perseverance. Blogging invites you to be practice, which sharpens your talent, perservere which sustains your talent and take the initiative which activates your talent.

        We are so happy that your relationship with your own beautiful talent has become stronger. Blogging takes you beyond…..into a place of beyond ……and into a place beyond that which is peaceful, still and joyful. A natural, normal home for us all.

        Thank you for caring enough to let us know we have an impact. Thank you Marie-Well done
