As we approach Valentine’s Day (do not forget to memorialize this day if you are in a committed or important relationship!), I thought it might be helpful for us to look at this business of love as it is seen in the eyes of God, from what I have come to understand as a result of the Conversations with God dialogues.
Today many of you are celebrating love. Perhaps an equal number are sad because the love you desire is not available. Let us explain how you are loved by the spirit world or different dimensions and then describe how that love will evolve in the New Age. Many of you have learned that you are never alone because you are loved by the spirit world. But that thought is of little value when you feel unloved for you cannot yet easily cross the veils to be lifted by our spirit energy.
Earlier this week, a Facebook pal, Karen, shared a great idea with me on my Facebook Page. She wrote, “I’ll be spending the day on Monday giving Valentine’s Day cards to strangers with hand-written messages and affirmations (some I borrowed from you!), telling them they matter and are loved.” Karen invited me to join her (I’m in!) and this week I’m passing her invitation on to you.
Romance makes you come alive, doesn’t it? It brings joy to the soul, happiness to the heart, and rose-colored glasses to the vision! With the arrival of romance, you feel that you are walking on air and that your world is filled with happiness. Because everything feels so wonderful, even simple pleasures become ecstatic delights.
People we love can sometimes drain us the most. Our mates may not be trying to do this, but life's demands add up. For instance, at the end of a long day, he or she might come home in a negative mood or is needy and overbearing. Sometimes the draining behavior may go beyond this, when they become argumentative or hurtful. As a psychiatrist, I help my patients address these behaviors with their mates in a tactful, loving way to find positive solutions. Learning this skill is a wonderful Valentine's Day resolution to make in February, the month of love, and throughout the year.
Within each human heart is the desire to be deeply, utterly and eternally loved. This desire for true love is sacred union within you seeking outer fulfillment. The longing each soul feels for the partnership of Divine Union is what drives relationships in all forms. When Love is celebrated as it is at Valentine’s Day, there is a sweet call sent from each soul into the Universe for love to be born anew within the heart. Your inner yearning acts as an extraordinary magnet opening doors on many dimensions.
Today is a very fun post for us as we are nearing the time of your calendar year that speaks to the heart – Valentine’s Day. Of course, just as is true for your Christmas celebrations, Valentine’s Day is a societal concept designed to generate feelings of love and warmth. That is fine. It does not matter how such feelings are generated, as long as they are generated.
