Summer Flowers and the Marriage Bond

Beloved Flower Lover,

Heart pumping, tummy churning, tense. This wedding has our attention. A wedding is a wonderful time when we get to celebrate the outflowing of love between two people and their family and friends. It’s a time where we witness letting go of power plays and instead experience the outflow of love, love, love. We get excited because we get the chance to prepare flowers for this normal and beautiful ritual.

leah happy in car and bouquet We talked in our team about marriage and the general sense was how none of us had had any preparation at all. Working on wedding flowers, we are very aware of the divorce rates and because we really do love what we do and who we work for we wondered what we could do next. Why? Well we really do want the very best for you, and that has led us to explore a path about making our love bigger than our fear around marriage, love, marriage and power.

To be honest there is a feeling of helplessness when we consider the divorce rate.  Sometimes when we feel we can’t help, we just feel speechless.  well today, it’s a time for us to grieve. To grieve that sometimes we can’t help or save someone. Today is a day to make it ok to cry. To cry some old tears. Tear that come from a place when we realised that we can’t save someone, or save something.

Flowers found us. This work found us and like it or not, this work gives us the opportunity to help this feeling transform into peace by having to work with wedding flowers through this season. Having wedding flowers constantly in our face gives us the ideal space to not just change the energy of this and to let it come out. But to transform that energy,  and to let the love flow fully by doing flowers for others. This work has allowed us to re-develop a relationship with self around marriage and  rather than being hyper vigilant about marriage, to become hyper loving. How?

Well by applying a lot of the tip and techniques we share with you to ourselves to help make sense of the complex internal conversations that affect the way we show up in relationships. So shifting from being unclear about the mixed feelings that can be deemed heavy or hard.

Heart racing, tummy churning. Yep  this wedding got our attention. It does. Anything that gets us looking at the real issues can create the hyper vigilance to save others, and ourselves.  But is can also create the agenda to make agreements. So to shift from pushing down the complex internal conversations away and instead having honest conversations that create an opens door.

We are not afraid for this emotion anymore. We acknowledge the need to grieve. Who for?  For us, for sure, but for others too. This an old soul stuff. Grief about mistakes and can prevent us from being leaders in the world today. Deep grief, asking for forgiveness for anyone we felt we could not heal or save. It’s an amazing thing. we find that we are more detached, becoming less insistent that others heal because we have gone deep with this. Some of you might have noticed that this is a repost, but its been rewritten to acknowledge this shift.

Many times, the fear we had, came from another time. We have been working with them so they did not kidnap our joy.Thank you , every reader who has held this space with us because our relationship with fear is what this post is about. So we loving thank you for helping us to open up even more to this journey.

So we have offered more summer flower tips and combine it with a video to offer some guidance because the time is now to prepare for a good marriage. The time is now. So let’s begin with the flower tips and then go to the marriage suggestions in the brilliant videos we have collected for you.

Ordering flowers that are currently in season is not only the most affordable choice, it’s also the most environmentally friendly option. Think about it, flowers that are not in bloom right now (i.e. tulips) must be grown in a greenhouse or shipped from a foreign locale, which leaves a smaller carbon footprint. We suggest that you go for the lilies, gardenia, alstroemeria and carnations becuase they are in season.
