Another Valentine’s Day has come and gone. Did it live up to your expectations? I am not going to hate on the day of love. I celebrate any day that gives us permission to super-size our swoon and get extra-cheesy, bathing the ones we love, or even kinda like, in our special sweet sauce of love. (Did I take the fast food theme too far?) However, the day is rife with expectation. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, if you aren’t totally in alignment in the love department, Valentine’s Day is a reminder of how out-of-sync things really are. If you are pining for more connection, or for the love of your life to finally walk through your door, the way to get what you want is simple. Create an internal environment of love.
Why do I need to sow the seeds of this internal love garden, you ask?
You’re more attractive:
When you create a loving internal condition, you’re allowing yourself to feel the warmth, comfort and peace you associate with love, without relying on any external circumstances. On a practical level, this makes sense: when you’re vibrating with love, you’re someone who other people will want to be around. You’re “attractive.” Think about the alternative, the negative, nervous, and cold internal condition. Not cute.
There’s no happy ending at the end of an unhappy journey.
When you cultivate a glowing inner love, you’re feeling love right now. You’re happier on a daily basis. It no longer feels like anything is “missing” from your life. You experience a happier journey, which itself invites happier circumstances day after day.
Your external circumstances mirror your internal condition.
The thoughts you think, the emotions you feel, they all color the way you see and experience the world. Sticking with the limited perceptions about what’s possible for you in the area of love seriously limits what you then are able to experience in your life. When you choose a more loving perspective, the world opens up for you because you’re willing to let it in.
