This week, the waning/new moon energies blended with the planets to facilitate Inner-Love. Love from within may be a foreign feeling to some of us – We can ground and feel the Love from Mother Earth, open our crown and we can feel the Loving light of Heaven flow into us from the Universe…but how to generate it from inside us?
By using our Hearts.
Just as during your meditation or prayers when we make our Heart chakra big enough to contain our lower three centers, we can expand our hearts to surround our entire bodies. Take time this week to play with those feelings and practice wrapping yourself in LOVE. Physically hold yourself, wrap yourself in a pink blanket, give yourself a manicure or facial, practice looking in your own eyes in the mirror, saying Hello and other loving things.
The ability to practice Inner-Love of Self reflects our willingness to give to ourselves as much as we give to others. It’s important to stay “filled up” with our love & light because we never know when we will get an assignment from Spirit.
Some really great ideas for being your own Valentine include cutting out or writing down affirmations and placing them around your house, on your bathroom mirror, etc. Take paper hearts and put love notes in your pockets so you find them when you least expect it. Buy yourself some flowers, take a bath with rose petals, anything you equate with feeling loved.
After the New Moon on the 18th in Pisces, the flow turns tide… now you can begin taking the love & compliments from OTHERS and consciously receive. Add those compliments to your jar of love notes. Really accept hugs and joy and laughter as the gifts they are. This will help settle your whole Year in place. We have plenty of time to practice loving ourselves and receiving LOVE…so that we can get used to accepting & receiving anything…in an instant!
