Everywhere we look today there are hearts – made of paper, candy, flowers, glass, ceramic, fabric – just about every medium we can imagine. The colours of red and pink and variations thereof are everywhere as well. Yes, it’s almost Valentine’s Day.

This proliferation of Valentine’s symbols is a metaphor for the inner desires of our souls. Red is the colour of life = physical energy, passion, courage, power, will, and desire. Red is powerfully linked to our most primitive physical and emotional needs of survival and self preservation. Love is one of those essential needs for survival. Pink is the color of universal love = emotional love of self and others, friendship, affection, harmony and inner peace.

We have a great need for loving and being loved, and consciously recognizing that this is so. I believe this is because God is Love – and God being All, this is what we are and that Powerful Presence of Love within us wants to be acknowledged!

The late Eileen Cady, co-founder of Findhorn wrote:

“Love is everywhere, in everything, around everything. Love is the greatest creative force in the universe. If Love were to be withdrawn, all would disintegrate. Love holds together, blends together; it is the together of togetherness.

Nothing can withstand the power of Love. With a heart filled with Love you can speak with wisdom, compassion and deep understanding and tenderness. You can speak with real authority because you are filled with My essence. Love is your true heritage. Why not claim it?”

Let’s be our own Valentine not just once a year but everyday – Claim LOVE today!

Blessings of Love, Rev. Angelica


My Love goes out to every one in the world;

"I do not exclude anything, for I love all Nature and everything that is.

My Love warms and lightens everything that it touches, and it
goes out into all places.

The Love flowing through me is a Power to all who come into contact with it,

and all feel and know that I love.

Love within me is Complete and Perfect."

And So It Is.
