On Valentine’s Day, most people are concerned with the love they are expecting to get, but they forget the important love they can give… the gift of self-love.
When you love yourself deeply many magical things start to happen: in yourself and in your relationships. Loving yourself helps you to love others more deeply. Also, when you fall in love with yourself you are so much more attractive to others. After all, everything in our lives is a mirror of what we have inside of ourselves. So the more positive qualities and energy we have inside of us, the more of that we have to give.
When you love yourself, you let go of judging yourself and you learn to forgive yourself. To the degree you do that, you are more quickly able to forgive the ones you love and see the divine essence inside of them. They will feel that loving warm energy and respond in more positive ways than you can ever imagine.
Another side effect of self-love is that you will take better care of yourself. You will care more about how you look and how you dress/groom. Taking good care of yourself is an immediate reflection of your feelings of self-worth.
This Valentine’s Day, I suggest you treat yourself to some extra pampering. Groom as if you were going on a first date. Buy that new lingerie you’ve been wanting. Treat yourself to a mani/pedi. Or get that luxurious perfume. Give yourself something sensual and fabulous. You deserve it. Do things for yourself that make you feel loved and remove that job from your significant other: allowing them to fall more in love with the YOU that you love.
For your special Valentine’s date, wear something alluring, especially from the waist up. The focal point of your outfit will be viewed at the dinner table, so put the extra finishes where they’ll be seen the most. Fabulous sexy shoes are great, but you must create visual interest at the neckline or near the face.
Let Valentine’s Day 2013 be the day you celebrate LOVE: in yourself, your partner, your children, your family and your friends. Be grateful and take time to tell them all how much you care. Tell all the helpful people in your life how much you appreciate them. An attitude of gratitude can uplift even the weariest heart.
Fall in love with yourself and let your beauty, joy and love shine to the world. Live this day with passion and allow your deepest desires to be the life force behind all that you do. Feel passion and desire pulsing through your as the electricity of your being elevates your soul.
Drink the wine you love and savor your favorite chocolate as it melts in your mouth. Eat your favorite foods. Celebrate your feelings and all that you love on this blessed Valentine’s Day.
Know with certainty that you are all that is holy, good and beautiful. Applaud what makes you special and show those special qualities in how you package yourself.
