Question: Dear Jennifer, Some time ago you told me in a reading that I would be meeting someone special. It has been a long time since I’ve had a relationship and I do hope that I can find someone who will see me for the wonderful, loving person that I am. Sometimes I wonder if this can happen but I trust that my prayers will be answered and I will have love in my life one day.
Love follows a cycle, as does everything else on earth and in the Universe. But because we think of love as an emotion and forget that it is an energy, we don’t consider it as being part of the cycle of creation and destruction that everything in the Universe experiences. Our role, as co-creators of and with the earth, its ascension partner, and masters of the third dimension, is to create and expand love, allow old or ineffective love patterns to die so new ones can take their place.
Do you dread Valentine’s Day, with the pictures of the happy couples who will surprise each other with thoughtful gifts, give or receive flowers, have a romantic dinner date and spend the day in joy because a special someone loves them? First of all, remember that the people you see in those ads are actors and they probably barely know each other. The purpose of Valentine’s Day is to create an emotional connection and physical expression of love, which is love as a verb, not love as a noun.
You are always receiving Divine Love whether you “tune in” or not. Imagine how much greater the love can be when you consciously pay attention to the flow of Divinity within you. This attunement process is not difficult but it takes reminders and awareness to take the steps required, when in the midst of your busy life.
Love brings up so many feelings and thoughts, most of them involving our past love life which may not have been pleasant. We think of love as the ultimate goal of our life but what we are focused on is emotional love, the feeling, instead of unconditional love, the state of being. Since we are emotional beings in our human state, we connect more easily with love on that level because it makes us feel good, from the ego’s perspective, in ways that unconditional love does not.
Reminding: What I am guided to write in the Ascension Notes is about stepping more fully into the New. Some words may resonate; others may not. Part of my Path is to gently nudge you forward and it’s ok if you don’t agree or understand, because we’re all on different timelines and if something doesn’t fit with your current thinking, the seeds are planted. All your intellect knows is based on the past.
Hieros Gamos is the sacrament that represents “sacred marriage” at the individual level, to the relationship level, to the group level as a part of spiritual ascension, moving through the spiralling staircase of time to experience unification with (or marry) all aspects of God. When we marry God through this sacrament, Christ returns.
You are on a journey to return to your essence, and the essence of a human being is love. You’re here to fall in love with yourselves and the universe is moving into a place where you can fall in love with yourselves again, where the love can flow, an endless flow of love where men and women can love each other again, where men can love men, and women can love women.
As you approach your linear year of 2012, many of the changes you have experienced in the previous years will be consolidated – in your mind and therefore into matter on a physical level. The previous three years have created much of your transformation. Prior to that was a time of preparation and of awakening to your Soul Light.
The path of relationship represents our connections in the third dimension. While we may describe them as good or bad, they are no more than energetic intersections of karma and healing. We can glamorize relationships to be the wonderful stuff of romance novels or the tribulations that we experience as part of the path of seeking love but they are both all of this and none of this because they are simply energetic connections. From the family we chose to be born into to the partners, friends, neighbors and lovers we choose to share our life path with, it's only energy whose flow has a purpose, to bring us closer to wholeness within ourselves.
I'm dating myself here as the title of this article refers to the ads for Memorex cassette tapes, which supposedly sounded as good as the original, live performance. According to these ads, a voice recording could be heard exactly the same way, live or on tape, no matter how many times it was replayed. And in the context of this month's subject of relationships, this is such an appropriate concept because while we think our relationships are all new and unique, in reality they are all (until we set different intentions), pre-recorded and what we are experiencing is a very good replay.
The path of relationships is how we experience our healing journey because we heal ourselves through the mirror of our wounds, which is one way we connect to others. We have a wound to heal, we find someone with the same wound and with a 360 perspective of our wound in front of us, we can resolve and heal our issues. That's the way it is supposed to work but it usually doesn't. Instead, we think there is something wrong with the other person, we try to heal them and then go from one wounded relationship to the next
Before reading this article, clear your mind of any previous beliefs, notions, opinions or expectations of what relationship means to you because in order to enter the paradigm of intentional and conscious relationships, we must begin from a new perspective. Until now, relationships have been placed in the domain of romance and we tend to look at them in the context of romantic partnerships but they encompass every connection that we have with every person, situation and thing in our lives.

So out of the blue a guy I had dated six months ago calls me yesterday to tell me how sorry he was for treating me poorly while we were seeing each other. Seems like a nice gesture, right? He goes on to say that now that he’s dating someone else and treats her so much better which made him realize how he could have done much better by me. He wasn’t sure why he behaved so badly toward me since he had really liked me and thought I was such a nice and wonderful person. It felt like a punch in the gut. Why didn’t he feel obliged at the time to treat me good if he had liked me so much?!
