Happy Valentines Day!

I love Valentines Day! I know, it can be super cheesy and commercialized, but to me all that stuff is just getting in the way of the point of today. For me, it isn't just a day you celebrate your partner. And if you don't have one then somehow you are left out. Nope. That's not it at all. Today is about celebrating love in all forms! The love you have for a friend, your dog, your neighbor, your mother, your child, your wife... And I would even go so far as to say the love that we have around us all the time! From the moon and the stars, to the hummingbirds and coyotes! Love is abundant, and it is everywhere! 

These past few days, mainly because of Healer Training, I have felt so much love. So much gratitude for the love I have in my life. It feels so abundant my heart swells with it! Last night I went to a breath meditation circle, and my intention was to send myself love, and acknowledge how much I have grown these past months, and also because these past weeks I have been a little too hard on myself. And I found that during meditation I spent time sending everyone else in the room love. Love to those who were filled with grief, and love to those who were being courageous, love to those who were inspiring me... love to everyone. And in return I felt SO much love coming back to me. And it kind of hit me in a way it hasn't before. Love is about exchange. Being loving towards others, and being loving to Mother Nature and all the ways it supports us, in return will allow you to open to receive more love.

And this is something we can do every day. Not just today. 
Today is just a reminder.

So, lovelies, today, and everyday, I send you love with all my heart! 
May you all shine like the bright stars you are!

Also, if you live in LA, don't forget to stop by Cookbook to pick up some amazing wild flowers from Miss Lili, and a card made by me!
