Who else was super interested in the connection to this year's convergence of Ash Wednesday (the beginning of Lent where observers reflect on the events of Jesus's journey to the cross) with Valentine's Day (a day that originates in celebrating the life of St. Valentine that has moved into a "hallmark" holiday of celebrating Love)?
Those that know or follow me, know I find a meaning and the purpose in almost everything! Plus it's sort of my life's work too :) I have also been talking about the significance of the shift that will be occurring in 2018 over the last 4-5 years. I knew that 2017 was ending a cycle for many that had been journeying and doing the transformative work leading them into their truest personal purpose. Many did not even know this transformation was taking place, they mostly felt a lot of transitions. Yet when 2017 ended and 2018 began, careers and lifestyles started moving in a more authentic direction. One that has invited a deeper love and acceptance of self, as well as deeper passion and meaning of one's life. People are more in tune with their higher self.
So how does this tie into the significance of Ash Valentine Wednesday? One event symbolizes the unwavering love for humanity and a way of being through the attributes of Love for humanity. The other represents one particular day to show Love.
Perhaps the convergence of these events is lighting the way for expression of Love on a deeper level. Asking us to reflect on what Love and it's attributes of Empathy, Compassion and Forgiveness mean when relating to ourselves and others.
Christ consciousness symbolizes the depth of God's Love and creation of humankind, awakening our recognition of Oneness with all life and connection to our spiritual and human self. Valentine's day has become a holiday of seeking a partner to share Love with on this one day vs. sharing Love with your existing partner on this one day.
When we recognize that Love is meant to be expressed this passionately everyday, for everyone, and everything we move into the consciousness of Oneness - that we are all created out of Love in order to Love one another and ourselves all day and everyday.
2018 is a year of shifting into deeper truth, purpose and consciousness. Love energy is a major element in living through higher purpose and consciousness. This big Love event, I would say, is of no accident! :) #godsbigplan #40dayreflectionoflove
