A Valentine for the World

How can you create love?

Share love?

Live in a caring world?

Gently close your eyes.

Breathe in slowly, rhythmically.

Feel your belly rise and fall.

Focus on your breath.

Sense your breathing getting slower.

Be aware of your limbs softening.

Allow your neck muscles to relax.

Observe your heart beating gently.

Picture light entering you through your feet.

Sense your feet and ankles relaxing.

See the light traveling up your legs, knees and thighs.

Feel your legs letting go of tension.

Watch the light move through your pelvis to your abdomen.

Sense these areas softening.

Now the light moves to your heart.

It fills your heart with loving warmth.

Let the light rest here while you breathe deeply.

(Pause)

Allow the light and love to move as one.

Visualize caressing energy spreading up your shoulders,

Down your arms to your fingers.

Watch passionate affection travel up your neck,

Through your head, mouth, nose, eyes

Forehead and crown.

Observe this force passing through your mind and spirit.

Watch as it moves back to your heart center.

Place your hands across your heart.

Picture and sense love completely filling your heart.

Breathe in the feeling of adoration and affection.

Breathe out this passionate vitality.

Allow love to permeate your tissues, your cells.

Breathe gently as you observe this phenomenon.

Observe this energy Infusing your body and mind.

Meditate

It is time to prepare for meditation.

Picture love permeating your mind,

Your soul and your body.

Now that your heart and body are filled with affection,

It is time to share your love.

Visualize this passionate force surrounding your,

Family and friends.

Encircle those who bring conflict to your life.

As you shine love and light around them,
