Even though Valentine’s Day might seem a rather trivial holiday, I really enjoy seeing the symbol of LOVE everywhere!
All the love we experience in our lives appears to be rooted first in our family, then our friends, eventually in a partner/spouse and, finally, in our children. It’s so natural and heartwarming to feel the positive emotions associated with love! Love is attainable by all, and each of us should have the opportunity to experience love in our lives.
Through my work I’ve observed many times that, when a child begins to love him/her self, they begin to start caring about how another child loves him/herself. This domino effect involving self-love impacts children, not only physically, mentally and emotionally but, most importantly, spiritually.
Once someone acknowledges self-love, they are then able to truly extend love to another person and to accept love back. Not only is it mutually beneficial at the physical level, it’s the knowing and acceptance of the self that increases our physical positivity, presenting our individual spirits with the platform from which to progress toward a positive state.
When someone experiences self-love, this positive state of being allows them to prepare their body for spiritual progress and to become more aware of others’ spiritual status. In turn, this awareness brings a greater understanding of the spiritual state of people close to us and, in the greater picture, of the impact of our spiritual progress as a whole.
Hopefully, the spiritual aspect of our world can evolve dynamically from its incorrigible negativity into a fundamentally positive state. Perhaps, if love for oneself were more important, people could start caring for themselves, for each other, and for our planet.
Valentine’s Day is a great time to reflect upon those we love and the essential energy that love generates for us – and our timeless spirits – as we move through this existence together.

It is true: until acceptance of self is attained, which is self-love, we cannot project love outward, or begin the process of planting love in others. Love is an anointing that cannot be passed along until we have it.
Thanks for your comment! Very much appreciated! 🙂
Self love, if we can’t love ourselves first, how can we love others? Great post 🙂
Thanks so much, Donna! I appreciate your comment! 🙂
Though we didn’t celebrate with (the) “traditional” chocolate and flowers, today we enjoyed a delicious and nourishing lunch. Happy Valentine’s Day.
♡ Happy Valentine’s Day! Wonderful! It sounds like you’re enjoying love as an everyday experience – as it should be! ♡
