Beloved Flower Lover,
Sometimes we want to cleanse something which is not dirty…
The artichoke flower helps us to think about cleansing ourselves in a different way. To feel our way into loving ourselves in a way which leads us to switch from thinking about take away anything in our bodies that is backing up our thinking about ourselves to, filling up our minds with beautiful thoughts about ourselves. To cleanse ourselves of any ideas from others that is clogging up our own ideas of our value. We can think of the artichoke as inviting us to create space for the flowering of something lovely and beautiful about ourselves.
Being cheated on or not listened to can create a sense of overwhelm and lead to picking on our own selves or others that look like us.
Sometimes we pick on ourselves if we are not being listened to, or sense that someone is cheating on us. We do that picking on ourselves by go into some self cleansing and self improvement activity rather than just saying we are aggravated about it . Then telling them that it’s not acceptable and that we are moving on if they do not change. This can happen if we ‘feel’ our voice does not matter… to ourselves or others. That the take home message.
Sometimes cleansing ourselves is not the place to start.Loving myself just the way I am is often a better place to start. If you have had abuse you may be cleaning a lot. You may be involved in some self abusive cleansing or grooming behavior. The take home message is that we are not good enough.
Sweeping it under the carpet creates clutter….internal clutter!
Perhaps you don’t have to do all this stuff. Perhaps its a time to reconsider your story. That you have no flaw in you….you don’t have to pick on yourself for some perceived flaw which someone may have indicated. To rewrite your story you will need to reexamine and re value yourself. You don’t need cleaning, you need adding of self love. You don’t need to remove anything. You are an example of I love myself just as I am.
We would invite you to select a flower on regular basis to reflect that change of story and reflect your beautiful value.
Thank you artichoke It can help to express your courage of strength which does not get swept away and ignored.
