Today is Valentine's Day, a day for giving and receiving and recognizing the love in our lives. Most of the time we limit ourselves to the romantic love in our lives, but today while I was on the elliptical machine, I decided to send out vibrations of love up into the atmosphere and join with the vibration that was already out there as people think about love today and the vibration seems to be one of love and harmony. Even as we focus on that one true love that makes our heart skip a beat when he walks into the room, the vibrations that we send out join with all the other thoughts and feelings of love that others are sending out and it raises the vibrations on the planet even if just a notch. In my meditation, I imagined my vibration of love going out from the top of my head into the atmosphere above and joining a grid of sorts from others that were also sending out vibrations of love, and this grid of love and light forming an atmosphere just above the earth that encircled our planet. From this grid of love and light, I saw droplets of love, like raindrops or even snow flakes falling down from the atmosphere just above our clouds. These raindrops of love fell onto our Mother Earth, soaking into her soil and healing the desecration that has wounded her in recent years from the self centered attitudes of many of us who wound her every day from our thoughtless actions, such as littering and polluting of the airs and waters due to our every day lives. As the droplets of love fell on our Mother Earth, I also saw droplets of love floating upward into our atmosphere above the earth and encircling us with the energy of love and acceptance. I am one who believes that our thoughts are like prayers that reach out into the atmosphere and creates the lives we live. What if we spent just a moment every day focusing our thoughts upon love? What if we imagined a world full of love and peace, where war was a thing of the past and we all lived in peaceful acceptance of one another, instead of fearful anticipation of what might or could happen? What if we imagined our Mother Earth with all of her resources abundantly supplying us without us desecrating her or pillaging her? What if we asked her permission before drilling for oil? Sounds a little silly but I believe our Mother Earth has abundant resources that she would love to share with us if we would only ask. I am sure that there is a better way. I am sure our Mother Earth and Father Sun would love to share their secrets with us if we would only ask.
Spend a moment now sending a message or vibration out of love and thankfulness for all those Unseen Forces that love us and provide for us every day. Thank the Angels for watching out for us and guiding us and thank Mother Earth for allowing us to live our lives and use her resources every day. The more we focus on love the more love will abound in our lives. If we are feeling a lack of love, maybe it is a message that we need to give more love.
I am reminded of that Beatles song... "You may think I am a dreamer. But I am not the only one. Perhaps one day you will join us. And the world will live as one."
