The month of February holds a holiday that many romantics look to for a reason to give special attention to their relationship and partner. Others simply seize the opportunity to express the Love they feel to those close to their heart.
It’s a wonderful day to celebrate Love!
The thing is, though, that Love is what we’re made of…our original Divine Blueprint that shines through at the most trying of times as well as during the moments that make life worth living. With that in mind, every day is a day to celebrate and express Love.
As with so many other holidays, those of us with a dearth of close personal relationships can feel left out. It may not have to be that way if we can be a little flexible about what Love looks like and how much of it we have in our lives, of both a tangible nature and otherwise.
The Power of Acknowledgment
It’s a wonderful thing to be seen, is it not? When someone you love notices that you put some attention into what you wore on a particular day or the special way you do things, does it not put an extra bounce in your step? By the same token, a total stranger might just have their day turned around because you offered a sincere and spontaneous compliment.
My daughter is a Master at this. We’ll be at the check out for groceries, perhaps…and she’ll say to the cashier, “I love your earrings!” Without fail, the girl behind the counter smiles, possibly even for the first time that day, she softens, and.maybe even shares where she found them. The energy shifts and everyone walks away feeling good about themselves.
It’s easy to acknowledge people we don’t know, because we’ll walk away feeling good and nothing is risked, nothing lost. Sometimes that may not be not so with those close to us. Our personal relationships can be complicated, and we may have our reasons for withholding acknowledgment. The reasons are usually based on fear and all manner of “What if” questions.
The truth of it is that if we want more Love, the most sensible course is to be more loving. We can think of ourselves as magnets that attract whatever it is that we’re putting out. With that in mind, it becomes ever more clear that the Love Train starts with our own selves.
Going with the idea that we’ve done our personal work by now and whatever is left to clear will do so in the timing that we and our Team so choose…we’re practically walking Orbs of Clear Light at this point. Getting into a car or going out at all is an opportunity to make our field much larger, to encompass all those we come in contact with or near in a blessing wave of loving intention.
The opportunity to be loving is given to us all day long.
Returning now to the power of Acknowledgment ~ Perhaps call it Sacred Play when exploring what it’s like to speak out your admiration when something you lay eyes on brings a wave of appreciation (basically, Love). Say you’re standing in line for a movie, and the person behind you is wearing an awesome jacket or has a great and remarkable hair situation going on. By all means, do share the Love and appreciation you feel inside.
Not to worry, either, about how they accept the compliment (or don’t). Some people are so surprised by a stranger saying something nice that they pretend they didn’t hear…but if they did hear, fabulous! Because a seed of self-worth has been sown.
In closing, I just would like to offer my prayer for us All on this day in celebration of Love ~
May we discover in our own hearts the Love that we’re made of.
Love that fills up our unique,
Divine Lightbody of Exquisite Design
To maximum capacity so we Shine out
As a unified Sacred Collective from this beautiful Earth Star
Blessing All Creation…
