As I have shared many times before, the Full and New Moons, along with Equinoxes and Solstices, are auspicious times of upgrading our bodies with rays of Infinite light. On this particular Full Moon (7:44p.m. MST), our New relationships are especially activated with Sacred Agape Love. This is enhanced by powerful solar activity...you see the higher purpose and synchronicity of this? Solar=male; lunar: female. And so on this day, there is great balance within our higher, more evolved spiritual male and female energies.
Earlier this week, a Facebook pal, Karen, shared a great idea with me on my Facebook Page. She wrote, “I’ll be spending the day on Monday giving Valentine’s Day cards to strangers with hand-written messages and affirmations (some I borrowed from you!), telling them they matter and are loved.” Karen invited me to join her (I’m in!) and this week I’m passing her invitation on to you.
Romance makes you come alive, doesn’t it? It brings joy to the soul, happiness to the heart, and rose-colored glasses to the vision! With the arrival of romance, you feel that you are walking on air and that your world is filled with happiness. Because everything feels so wonderful, even simple pleasures become ecstatic delights.
The title of this article is from a Lady Gaga song and it an appropriate subject for this time of year as we celebrate love. Valentine's Day is all about romantic love but there are many other kinds of love we can celebrate - with our friends, family, children, pets, etc.
People we love can sometimes drain us the most. Our mates may not be trying to do this, but life's demands add up. For instance, at the end of a long day, he or she might come home in a negative mood or is needy and overbearing. Sometimes the draining behavior may go beyond this, when they become argumentative or hurtful. As a psychiatrist, I help my patients address these behaviors with their mates in a tactful, loving way to find positive solutions. Learning this skill is a wonderful Valentine's Day resolution to make in February, the month of love, and throughout the year.
When we're looking for love (or under its intoxicating influence), we often miss seeing extraordinary signs and messages that pop up in our daily life to give us clues as to whether we're on the right track.
Within each human heart is the desire to be deeply, utterly and eternally loved. This desire for true love is sacred union within you seeking outer fulfillment. The longing each soul feels for the partnership of Divine Union is what drives relationships in all forms. When Love is celebrated as it is at Valentine’s Day, there is a sweet call sent from each soul into the Universe for love to be born anew within the heart. Your inner yearning acts as an extraordinary magnet opening doors on many dimensions.

“Dear Saint-Germain, I was once married, but we were unable to continue together as husband and wife. Since our divorce, we've remained close friends, and we still share many things together. Although both of us wish to marry again, we fear that we’ll have to give up our friendship for this. What should we do? Thank you.”
You must never give up. No matter how hopeless it might seem, you must never give up Love's Dream. And no, it is not required that living The Dream must hurt. If it hurts, you are not living The Dream, you are living a nightmare and calling it a dream, hoping that it will become one. Stop it. Stop the struggling. The Dream has no struggle in it. If you are struggling, you are not living The Dream.
Dear Saint-Germain, my question is about what happened between me and my husband, and what I am still missing. Since our separation some months ago, both of us have been through a lot of internal change. However, I now feel it is time to make a few decisions as to how to continue. Is there any sense for me to intend to bring the two of us back together - we've got children after all - or would it be better for me to move on?
For you to have a supportive relationship with another, you must approach each relationship in this way. Every relationship is a supportive relationship. Every relationship will assist you to grow in your understanding, your wisdom and your personal power, if you will allow it. Each relationship is a mirror of the lessons and the spiritual growth you are in the process of integrating. For the other person, it is so also, as you will each mirror to the other, the lessons and tests which harmonize within the relationship to enhance your learning experience.
Dear Ones, you will assist yourselves greatly in your quest to bring harmony and balance into your relationships, when you see each interaction with another as an opportunity to learn. You may be greatly assisted if you will stand back and see each one in your life as a Master Teacher. It matters not if it is a close love relationship, if it is a family relationship, if it is a passing relationship with someone you meet in your daily life. It could be in relationship to someone that your work with. Each relationship is an opportunity to learn spiritual lessons.
Everywhere I go I get many, many questions-and of all the questions I get, many, many of them have to do with human relationships. And the one question I get about relationships very often is this one, contained in a heartfelt letter that I received from a woman I shall name Sanra: Should I leave my spouse?
