★Assertiveness – Sweet Violet★
“You are a beautiful and sensitive soul. It is sometimes easier to retreat and hide. Stand up for yourself and communicate clearly with confidence. You will notice life will be sweeter.” – Lisa Mcloughlin Art
“VIOLET Blue – Watchfulness; Faithfulness; I’ll Always Be True,” – Language of Flowers.
“The forward Violet thus did I chide… Sweet thief, whence didst thou steal they sweet that smells, If not from my love’s breath? The purple pride Which on thy soft cheek for complexion dwells In my love’s veins thou hast too grossly dyed.” The Sonnets, XCIX by William Shakespeare
Violet for me has always been a flower of love, famously paired with lavender in love potions, and it is known to be sacred to the love between two women.
In love spell workings it is peaceful, quiet and doesn’t need to be showy in order to affirm its presence; it quietly excudes not only vibrations of love and faithfulness but assurity; the Deva of this beautiful little flower is never in my experience, the shrinking violet from literature. Neither ashamed of itself nor pretentious, Violet is nevertheless an incredibly beautiful flower, in petal and scent.
Striking the balance between shrinking away when we are hurt in life, be it in love or otherwise and being too empathic to the point of being a doormat for others to walk all over is sometimes a delicate process of thought (and unfortunately, often experience.) Sometimes we give too much of ourselves where it is not received with gratitude and love, and sometimes we shrink when we should proudly proclaim for ourselves.
The balance comes from finding what is true.
Truth of self is an important concept; one that is ever evolving and flowing, and it is ok to re-evaluate who we are, seek to change and be a better version of ourselves. Sometimes we are the negative person and we have to stop beating ourselves up for that because it is natural – and not permanent.
It is an act of self love to realise when you are being unfair, to yourself as well to others, and seek to realign with a loving mentality instead. The watchfulness of Violet speaks to this self analysis and readjustment.
Even small steps towards changing your own behaviour will in turn become the journey to your higher self, your truth.
And honour the truth in your life; do not put up with those who seek to take away from you, lie to you, deceive you, or force you to retreat into your hiding place.
You deserve your place in the sunshine, and the rain.
Many blessings Starlets,
