Today I'm going to write a little more about the back story behind our newest feature - The Chakra bouquet series.
This idea actually came through my cousin & close friend Erin. She is a mentor to me and has been the catalyst for me on my spiritual path.
I used to suffer from crippling depression. Having suffered acute trauma throughout my childhood & teenage years, as I entered late teens & early twenties I began to be haunted, troubled & exhausted by the wounds I still carried around with me.
I actually had no idea I was dealing with depression, I thought that this was just the way that I was always going to be & that it was totally normal to feel this way everyday.
It wasn't until my partner Dann & I decided to move to Sydney that everything bubbled to the surface and exploded. I had a break down of sorts (basically I just became exhausted with my own BS) which lead me to my two eldest cousins. Kerry (the eldest) lived up the road from me, she was on the end of the phone guiding me to seek help.
Her sister & my other cousin (Erin) was finishing her studies of Kinesiology at the time. She offered to see me for free (As I was a struggling floral artist & interior design student) and we continued to work together to get my body & mind back to full health.
I have now being seeing Erin & seeking other alternative therapies for about 3 years. I am abundantly happy & excited 80% of the time. I now think life is the most intricately beautiful chaos & I savour every moment.
Now this back story is important. Because this feature is EXTREMELY personal to me & its been quite a journey living my life up until this point. I believe the chakra bouquets were gifted to me by the angels, earth & other realms, as a way to help humans heal & flourish through our greatest gifts on earth: Art & Nature.
Back to Erin;
One day we were working through issues I was feeling with Fleur & Threads. I had been working on myself for about 1.5-2years & I had grown SO much since I had started the business & couldn't connect properly to the concept I had first started with.
As you all know, if you follow me on Instagram & Facebook, Spirituality had become huge part of my life and I didn't want to keep this secret anymore. I had healed & thrived beyond measure by learning to put myself first, cleansing myself of toxic relationships, habits & foods. I felt like I had learnt the secret of what it is to be human and I wanted my business to pay homage to this part of myself.
My main spiritual practice at that point in my life was meditatively balancing my chakras everyday. I grew extremely sensitive to the feeling of each chakra, the smells, the sounds & colours that activated and aided my healing process. As well as the crystals that would help ground & stabilise the energy.
Erin had picked up on my growing ability / connection to the chakras, and suggested that I create Chakra inspired bouquets. This had never been done before & would fuse my two greatest passions - flowers & healing.
OH MY GOD. I was floored. I felt like the stars had aligned and I still to this day cannot properly describe the feeling I felt throughout my entire body. This was the answer to my reconnecting to Fleur & threads. I was too close to the situation - a fresh set of eyes & perspective was all I needed! (Thank you Erin & Kerry, you are my personal angels).
In my next blog I will go into the intricacy of the chakra bouquets.
I think it's important for you to all know the story behind this feature. This product has a history, it has a mission on earth. I'm excited to watch The Chakra Bouquets light up the hearts of those who need it.
If you are suffering at all and you've found yourself reading this post, if you need help, please don't hesitate to get in contact with me if you need to talk to someone. I'm here for you.
