DAY 253

this is the way that flowers make us feel

While I was attending a course past weekend, someone mentioned the power of fresh flowers in order to heal the energy of spaces and create a better atmosphere. I read a few books about space cleaning the last time I moved in, but I hadn´t linked this to my recent visits to my mother 

In fact, when I´ve visited my mom lately, I´ve always bought fresh flowers and I´ve felt the urgent need to laugh, sing (and believe me, I am not a good singer) dance and be creative... so when I heard the comment about flowers and space cleaning, I saw it clear. I was making an effort to change the mood at my mom´s house and to  provide it with new, fresh, energy, that could help us to be more cheerful. Of course, my mother loves flowers and I also wanted to please her, but now I know that I was also trying to instill courage, love and hope in the house

 Unconsciously, I was trying to disperse sadness and the sense of powerlessness which are present in the house, maybe because my mother is feeling this way frequently: she and my brother (who is taking care of her, regardless his own disability) spend much time alone, so even when they have help with home tasks and family visits -which improves the situation a lot- the emotional energy is not shaken as deeply as is required and they are not strong enough to do it by themselves

So this time, I am doing it consciously. I am working with the energy around the house, rather than with their mood and I can see how this is impacting positively on their state of mind and making a great difference in their lives

Maybe effects won´t be very lasting, but seeing my mother smiling again, my brother enjoying his daily life and the clarity surrounding them, make me feel that it is worth trying it

So worth the sometimes significant energy that it takes to lift up those that we love in their own daily lives.
