Valentine's Day confronts many of us with difficult questions - are we in a relationship? Is it thriving? Are we in love, or being loved on? Are we being treated how we want? If we are not in a relationship, is there something wrong with us? Depending on the answer, the day can be memorable, forgettable, or even horrible.
But if we remember that this holiday is rooted in the idea of love, the feeling of being seen, and the safety that comes with acceptance, we can experience the root of setting aside one day a year to celebrate love. Thankfully, a relationship with another person is rarely the origin of true love.
True love must, first and foremost, be experienced within ourselves, and self love is a muscle that needs to be trained.
Self-love means finding peace within ourselves — resting comfortably within the depths of our being. There’s so much hype about “Self-Care,” which is wonderful, and we just might find temporary respite by having a spa day or doing something to nurture ourselves. But a deeper inner peace, and self-love requires cultivating a certain way of being with ourselves — a warm and nurturing attitude toward what we experience inside.
“It’s not your job to like me, it’s mine.” - Byron Katie
The truth is, if you want to manifest love - if you want to manifest a partner - or manifest someone, you have to love yourself, know that you are special, and that the right person, who will see your unique, special qualities is out there. Really know that, and believe it so deeply that you can feel it what it will be like to be in that relationship. You must be what you want to attract.
“To love yourself, truly love yourself, is to finally discover the essence of personal courage, self-respect, integrity, and self-esteem. These are the qualities of grace that come directly from a soul with stamina.” - Carolyn Myss
So to manifest love, you must only look within. You are love. Love is who we really are, and it is all around us, all of nature, all of us and our universe are born of love.
“The most important aspect of love is not in giving or the receiving: it’s in the being. When I need love from others, or need to give love to others, I’m caught in an unstable situation. Being in love, rather than giving or taking love, is the only thing that provides stability. Being in love means seeing the Beloved all around me.” -Ram Dass
