In the month of February, everyone seems fixated on love and spending money to prove their love to others. Valentine’s Day, or St Valentine’s Day, is celebrated every year on 14 February. It’s the day when people show their affection for another person or people by sending cards, flowers or chocolates with messages of love.
Who was St Valentine?
The day gets its name from a famous saint, but there are several stories of who he was. The popular belief about St Valentine is that he was a priest from Rome in the third century AD. Emperor Claudius II had banned marriage because he thought married men were bad soldiers. Valentine felt this was unfair, so he broke the rules and arranged marriages in secret.
When Claudius found out, Valentine was thrown in jail and sentenced to death. There, he fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and when he was taken to be killed on 14 February he sent her a love letter signed “from your Valentine”.
Having a particular Valentine’s Day is a very old tradition, thought to have originated from a Roman festival. The Romans had a festival called Lupercalia in the middle of February – officially the start of their springtime.
It’s thought that as part of the celebrations, boys drew names of girls from a box. They’d be boyfriend and girlfriend during the festival and sometimes they’d get married. Later on, the church wanted to turn this festival into a Christian celebration and decided to use it to remember St Valentine too. Gradually, St Valentine’s name started to be used by people to express their feelings to those they loved.
What if – instead of feeding the marketing machine and spending money to prove our love (which is all aligned with the 3rd dimension), we try something new from this moment forward…
In the 5th dimension we are able to instantly manifest whatever we focus on
What if we can start the process by gifting our love to OURSELVES… We spend so much time on others, and yet we spend most of our lives judging ourselves. The best gift you can give to yourself is to stop this.
Instead, simply take the time to create one new inspired thought per day. This invites a consistent rhythm of positive energy to build up momentum over time. And.. as a result, your mind becomes reoriented to resonate with inspired thoughts, which brings them to life.
Take some time right now to acknowledge how truly amazing you are, and speak to your body as if it was your best friend. Make sure that the affirming thought is bigger than the way you usually view yourself or life. Write down the sentences that anchor how you feel about yourself, what you love about yourself and what you would like to invite into your life in the future – as if it is already there
Here are some suggestions:
Changing your own reality:
Thank you beautiful body for being happy, healthy and energised. I love you so much and am so grateful for you.
Hi beautiful body, I am now enjoying a supportive and loving relationship that is in perfect synergy with me.
What energy space and consciousness can I be to continually be a magnet for receiving all the blessings of the universe on all levels.
I am serving my greatest mission as it was always intended to be.
I am healthier and happier than I have ever known.
