Bread feeds the body, indeed, but flowers feed also the soul. ~The Koran
I really do believe it is possible for a place to hold such beautiful, positive energy that nothing can taint it. No negativity can exist, even if it tries.
Some feel this way about their church, temple or synagogue. Others may feel this way about their home. If you are truly blessed, you have learned how to be peaceful and present in this world making that positive space your own soul.
This past weekend one of my dearest friends hosted a bridal shower for my daughter-in-law to be. It was held in her amazing gardens. Now, I have seen many beautiful gardens in my life and some maybe even more impressive (Versailles & Buckingham Palace come to mind) but this garden’s beauty is not only from what grows there, it’s beauty comes from the loving energy that we feel when we are there.
As most of you out there in the world of the middle-aged know, weddings can be a place where energies collide. The ghosts can come out of the closet while the fat lady is singing well off key. As we have prepared for this wedding my full intention has been to ensure that every bit of the experience is only positive. This is my son and his wife-to-be and there is no way in hell that an ounce of negative energy is going to creep into this experience! (Did you feel that?)
This bridal shower was one of the places where the energies could connect or collide. I personally worked all week in reinforcing my energy bubble (see previous post: Bug Spray) to ensure that I could ward off every ounce of negative energy. I am starting to feel like Yoda.
When I arrived early at the gardens, I felt enveloped in beautiful, positive energy. I didn’t have to think about that bubble or digging through my purse for a light-saber. It was just there for us all to bask in.
The beautiful, positive energy came from the earth, through the flowers who take the suns beautiful energy and convert it to abundant beauty. It came from the woman who tended to them ever so carefully; the woman who has named her home “Sunshine House”. It came from our very dear friends and family who came together for one purpose. To help and celebrate our kids as they start their lives together.
This is the second event in the series leading to the wedding day (see: Wasn’t That A Party?) and both had the most amazing joy around them. I have a feeling this wedding is going to be a very, very joyful occasion! If not, don’t worry, that light-saber will fit in my evening purse.
