Feel the (Full Breadth of) Love
February has culturally been dedicated to “feeling the love” – Valentine’s Day being the centerpiece.
The problem is, that’s only one kind of love. Its expression generally involves romance and spending money.
But that’s just a sliver of all the miraculous kinds of love available to us.
And how we take in love and nurturing is very important …
Because love is the stuff that catalyzes our cells to heal and grow.
That’s why I vote for widening the scope of Valentine’s Day to include the entire month … and all the love we celebrate.
For instance, at dinner the other night, my daughter and I sat side by side in a booth with our arms intertwined.
As I rubbed her neck, the tension of the week rolled off her shoulders. And the tender touch of our intertwined arms fed my soul.
As I write this, I’m also remembering a friend who recently spent time rubbing his dog’s ears. His dog was nestled in his lap licking him in return.
The nurturing, healing touch of that interchange was palpable. And I was only watching it unfold!
The gentle kind of bodywork I practice and teach also involves the nurturing quality we all need as human beings.
It brings a feeling of safety and relaxation that stimulates the immune system — and thus the healing process.
This is particularly important in these times of such uncertainty and fear.
So I say, enjoy your February. Let it remind you of the many, many ways we can love and nurture each other.
It’s a vital counterbalance to everything else that’s occurring around us.
There’s nothing wrong with romantic love. Just don’t limit your repertoire.
