Valentine’s Day Reflection and Meditation


Valentine’s Day is a precious holiday - it gets right to the heart of our body, mind, soul. Our physical heart pumps life giving blood all through our body. Our thoughts turn to loving and caring - our emotions. Our soul relishes the chance to take center stage on this day and express its radiance as an everlasting sun within us for all eternity, ever super-conscious - far outlasting our body and mind.

Let’s take time for a special meditation to celebrate Valentine’s Day

Choose a private place where you will not be disturbed, perhaps a corner of your bedroom or next to your bed. If you sit on a cushion on the floor bend your legs in. If sitting on a chair hold your back straight - don’t lean back into the chair, and keep the soles of your feet firmly planted on the floor for balance.

Fold your hands in your lap or place them palms up or palms down on your thighs. Close your eyes.

Begin even and gentle breathing such as one count to breathe in and one count to breathe out. Keep up this rhythmic pattern throughout your meditation without actually saying the counts. Even breathing regulates your body and emotions; if you are upset it is calming.

Turn your thoughts to the meaning of Valentine’s Day. Is it a time to be more emotionally expressive? Is it a chance to send a card with a loving thought? Can you take time to do a loving act for someone or others? Spend some time in reflecting on your own ideas for the holiday.

At the end of your silent time, send thoughts of appreciation out to the whole planet and the larger universe of which we are an essential part.

Take a deep breath in and slowly release it. Open your eyes and stretch out with a firm resolve to share the radiance of your heart with all.

I invite you to join me in a daily group cyber meditation for personal and world peace. Click the article here to read about it.
