In February we talk a lot about love. Since a day is told to be for lovers, and maybe we feel we have to. Yet, love is the main energy that keeps our body moving, our soul alive and happy.
We all want love in our lives; yet, there are questions that I feel we need to ask before that.
What do we want in life?
What would we want in life that makes us want to live a bit more?
Will a partner to share your days with satisfy that need?
Should we be looking for a perfect soul mate with whom you can be your true self?
Is there such a person? Is the concept of “soul mates” a reality?
What is love?
Is it sexual ecstasy? Is it affection or caring? Is it being cuddled or caressed?
What is love?
Is it what gives meaning to life?
Is it what makes us wake up in the morning and gives us the energy to go through the day?
What is love? And what is love for you?
Enough for questions. What about the answers?
The ancient wisdom of Kabbalah gives some information about love and soul mates. Those who work with energy therapy will tell you that “Love” is the highest energy frequency available.
When a soul comes down to incarnate, it comes in two separate energy polarities. One negative and one positive energy frequency incarnate. The positive energy is the male energy as we know it. However, a male energy might incarnate in a female body. You soul-mate if it enters you life, for even that is not very common, he or she might be a parent, a grandparent, a brother or a sister, or even a very close friend. Only few people ever meet their soul-mate as husband and wife in an incarnation. And this usually occurs only after these souls advance spiritually. Sometimes you see couple in their late ages still walking hand in hand as if they are newly weds. Those people are usually soul-mates.
How can we invite our soul-mate into our lives?
First of all, let us look at the energy of that special day and what it has to say to us.
Energy of February 14th, 2007
2007+16 = 2023
2023 = 7
7 is the numerological value of this years St.Valentine’s Day.
What does this number signify for this date?
The number 7 usually signifies new beginnings and change for the good.
On that day, seek and create for yourself a loving and secure environment.
A good affirmation for that day would be: “I am putting my life in order and preparing for the new beginning.” You do not have to be with somebody. We are talking about the energy of the day. Regardless of the name of the day, use it for your own benefit. This number signifies that we need to do things which are nurturing for our body and soul. It reminds us that to move in a positive direction in life, we need the support of a loving environment. It also reminds us to avoid chaotic and loveless relationships.
Esoteric sciences such as Kabbalah offer some tools that we can use to invite our soul-mate or at least “soul-mate” energy into our lives. When we connect with the energy of our soul-mate, we attain a feeling of completeness that makes us feel unity. In Kabbalah, we can use one of the 72 names of God to meditate and call that energy. The meditation book called “The 72 Names of God” by Yehuda Berg gives information about that connection as well as other tools. The book is available in Turkish as well under the name “Tanrı’nın 72 Adı.”
Also, there is a day every year when we can connect with this energy easily. This date is determined by the Kabbalistic moon calendar and is at the end of summer this year. I will write about that day when the time comes. Up until then, you can, with an open and honest heart, call the other half of your soul. A great healing takes place both for you and you other half when this union occurs. Yet, it is very important to do this with an open heart wishing for the ultimate best for both of you. Some of us might be able to meet with the real soul-mate, and some of us maybe will never find that person yet will have relationships that make us feel complete and loved.
The laws of the Universe operate on a system of total justice. What you wish and intend, happens. Selfish desires bring only negative results. When you wish something for yourself, make sure that you wish with the intent that only what is for the highest good of all happens. The power of intention is very strong, as well as the power of words.
You angles want you to let go of anger, judgment and resentment. Sometimes not forgiving past actions or events keep us stuck in certain situations. Have the courage to forgive both others and yourself. Unforgiveness can only hurt you, and can hurt you more that anyone else. When you clear your heart of old wounds and worries, you will be ready to welcome love and light into your life.
For emotional wounds and worries, rose oil can be of great help. Fill you bath and add a few drops of rose oil to the water and soak yourself in water for 10 to 20 minutes. You will feel the difference. You may also mix water with a few drops of rose oil and spray on your pillow or spray on your skin. In aromatherapy rose oil is known to heal emotional wounds. It increases our capacity for self-love and warms our hearts when and if we have grown cold due to old disappointments and pain. It reminds us that it is possible to love again.
There are no quick fix solutions to find love and fulfilment. It is life long process. Yet, the more we take care of ourselves, the more we love ourselves, the more it is possible to find true happiness in our lives. With or without a partner.
Sometimes we just need to surrender. To accept what life is and what life brings.
It is always the process on the journey that is valuable. The end is usually not the reward.
The great Sufi Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi who died in 1273, talks about love in many ways. Last month on December 17th we celebrated his death anniversary since Rumi believed that death is a union with the Divine and something to be celebrated.
I would like to share some of his poems with you.
* Some souls have gotten free of their bodies.
Do you see them? Open your eyes for those
who escape to meet with other escapees,
whose hearts associate in a way they have
of leaving their false selves
to live in a truer self.
I don’t mind if my companions
Wander away for a while.
They will come back like a smiling drunk.
The thirsty ones die of their thirst.
The nightingale sometimes flies from a garden
to sing in the forest.
* Love comes sailing through and I scream.
Love sits beside me like a private supply of itself.
Love puts away the instruments
And takes off the silk robes. Our nakedness
Together changes me completely.
* If you love love,
Look for yourself.
I would like to conclude with one of his poems that I love the most.
I wish you love, joy and happiness. May all your hearts’ desires come true.
* I am so small I can barely be seen.
How can this great love be inside me?
Look at your eyes. They are small,
But they see enormous things.
