Happy Valentine’s Day!
A confession – Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. I have always loved the colors and fun of Valentine’s Day and everything associated with it. I remember as a child staying up way too late, making valentines for my classmates with lace doilies and colored paper. I loved the fun of making, giving, and receiving valentines, and later when my daughter was young, I loved making valentines with her. Yes, there is a lot that can seem corny about this holiday but underneath it all it’s about love. We can all use more of that in our lives, so let’s celebrate a day when we can open our hearts a bit more with others, and even send a little more of that love to ourselves!
In honor of Valentine’s Day I wanted to share 2 practices, one that helps bring more love to ourselves and the other for bringing more love into our relationships.
This first may seem so simple that you will be tempted to overlook it. Sometimes the most simple is the most profound though and I invite you to try it out.
There is only one step: Decide in this moment to like yourself, to be really happy with yourself. That’s it. No grand gestures, just this simple decision that whatever you are doing or being in this moment, you like yourself. Sit with the feeling of this for a few moments, knowing that as you vibrate at liking yourself, everything that isn’t this is falling away, releasing out of your space. All the nonsense about not being good enough, not doing enough, not saying the right thing, etc. simply cannot exist at the same moment when we decide to like ourselves.
The second practice is something I learned many years ago from a wonderful teacher. When I asked him how to have a better relationship with my husband, he suggested this very simple practice.
He said, “3 times a day bring the image of your husband up in front of you and send him the message ‘I see you and I love you’.” Again this sounds too easy, but I assure you it works. It’s too easy for us, especially these days, to become out of touch with those we love, swept away by the world and its demands. As with plants, we all thrive and bloom when we are attended to, when we are seen. By practicing several times a day seeing and loving a person, they come to life and we come to life too. The cool thing about this practice is you can do it from a distance throughout your day too!
There they are, 2 simple practices that can transform your relationship with yourself and your loved ones. Try them and let me know how they work!
If you are currently in a relationship, or feel like you haven’t quite let go of an old relationship that might be holding you back from finding new love, I invite you to think about getting a relationship healing. In a relationship healing we look at the energetic dynamics between you both, what brought you together, what you are/were both learning together, your strengths and weaknesses, and help bring your relationship up to date, bringing healing to old issues so that you can move forward freely. Together we will set your relationship space the way you want it, filled with the kinds of qualities and experiences you want to have. Like a house, our relationship space need tidying and refreshing and Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do that.
When you purchase a relationship healing during the month of February you’ll also receive my Joyful Heart Cream which is imbued with flower essences and essential oils for soothing and opening your heart to more joy and love in your life.
If your have a relationship that could use freshening up connect with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-443-4348. I would love to talk more about how I might be of help.
Wishing you the sweetest Love this Valentine’s Day and always,
Kind Praise: “We have been seeing Kristine for a bi yearly relationship reading for the past 8 years. In that time our relationship has grown and deepened and I know that Kristine’s help has been an important part of this. There is no way to measure how her help has shaped a new world together in our home and with our children, but we know that it’s made a tremendous difference. Kristine is a gift and I’m so grateful for her work.”
