Mental Health Mantra 41/365
It is now becoming a practice to sit and play with colour and water first thing, soon after I wake early, after sorting the dogs and making tea for both of us, I head to my studio table, filling two new glasses full of water and sit down.
There is something methodical and ritualistic about this - it helps my day.
Today it was a bunch of flowers.
I took inspiration from my A2 vision book, I check over there and see what is resonating.
Through these 10 days of focusing on flowers, I have been thinking alot about the vibe flowers have.
Each flower has a distinct energy of its own .... it has got me revisiting Bach Flower Remedies, something I was introduced to 32 years ago as I was navigating ill health and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.
Turning to the flower remedies can support our emotions - I have always tapped into them, you may be familiar with Bach Flower Rescue Remedy, made up of 6 flowers that can be used in emergency situations to calm nervous/ anxious times and in 'emergencies.'
I really adore how they work and as I painted, I pondered.
Since I began painting flowers on 1st February, a Bach Flower Level 1 course literally dropped into my inbox unexpectedly with an old mentor, I begin on Feb 25th.
Really excited to learn more about how flower remedies can help soothe emotional systems. It works in tandem with our nervous system.
I was going to call this Mental Health Mantra ..... Flowers Rock. Well, because they do. Who doesn't feel cheered by seeing flowers and we need cheering these days.
Tune into the Flower Vibe and my very lovely friend Carolyn Flower is testimony to the gorgeous Power of Flowers.
Happy New Moon Peeps, keep shining and raising your frequency.
Stay centred and grounded, stand in your truth.
