February is the Month of Love, not just Feb. 14th, every day is a perfect day to express our love for those around us. Giving the gift of ourselves, our time and full attention, is a great way to express our love to one another.
What can we do to express and feel loved? By living in the moment, become aware of all that you have (family, friends, a job, a place to live, etc.) and show gratitude for these gifts. We may not always feel like showing our love for others and at times, we may feel unloved.
I’ve had the lyrics to ‘Love is in the Air’ sung by John Paul Young on replay in my head lately.
Love is in the air, everywhere I look around
Love is in the air, every sight and every sound
Love is in the air, in the whisper of the trees,
Love is in the air, in the thunder of the sea,
Love is in the air, in the rising of the sun,
Love is in the air, when the day is nearly done,
The lyrics fit so well with having gratitude and becoming aware of our surroundings, using all senses to experience the love we share with each other as well as ourselves.
Meditation allows our emotional and spiritual selves to connect and work together for personal growth and health. Meditation helps us physically too, by lowering blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, improves immune function and more.
When meditating, we are quieting our surroundings so that we can focus on ourselves. We can see with our minds eye what thoughts and feelings need attention, which can go on the back burner and which we can let go.
