Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day doesn't have to be about flowers or chocolate. It can be about freely spreading love to yourself and others. How about standing in front of a mirror and blowing kisses to yourself and saying I love you until you can say it with conviction? How about speaking to your loved ones in gibberish about how you feel about them? It could be a cat or a dog as well as a person. How about having your partner sit in a chair as you walk around it and say everything you appreciate about her/him? Then you switch and she/he walks around the chair appreciating you. That way you both practice receiving and giving. How about calling up the people you love and telling them you love them? Valentine's Day may be a hallmark holiday and why not take every available opportunity to express love? For that matter why wait til Valentine's Day? Create some rituals where you let your partner, friends, pets and family know how you feel about them on a regular basis. There is no such thing as too much love.

Love, love, love, love,
Open your heart and let yourself be loved.
There's a powerful love inside of you.
Open your body, Open your heart.
Open your mind to this love.
Val Steppian
