February is the month when we celebrate love. Although Valentine’s Day is a celebration of the love between two people involved in a romantic relationship, love should be celebrated in all encounters. We also don’t need a specific day to remind us of it, but since it is there, why not take this opportunity to connect with the love you have within, spread it around and attract it from everywhere.
Here are five powerful affirmations you can use this February, to bring the energy of love into your life.
The first affirmation is a bonus one and the base of all the others which follow. You can always say this to yourself at any point throughout the month. Choose an affirmation from the remaining four for each week and say it daily to yourself, every day for that week, repeating it three times just as you wake up and before you start your day ahead.
1. I am worthy of love.
Affirm your worth! You have to believe in yourself and your right to be loved. Love can come from different sources and can be manifested in various ways. It also responds to the type of energy we choose to put out there in the world. When you affirm to yourself that you are worthy of love, you will then attract it in your life. Because your energy vibration aligns itself with the same kind externally. However, if you don’t believe that you are worthy, your experiences of love will continue to fit within the same patterns until you realise that you are in fact worthy of it. Start this February with good vibes, giving and attracting love. It’s always available to us, we just have to be open to it.
2. I love myself unconditionally for all that I am in the present moment.
The external relationships and social encounters we form through our life are very important. We are part of a collective consciousness that needs to be nurtured through compassionate and kind behaviours between individuals. But the most important relationship in your life is the one you have with yourself. Ultimately, it all begins with love, as it is the most powerful gift we have been given. Learn to love yourself unconditionally just as you are in the present moment, and not for what you have been or what you could be. We often put so much pressure on ourselves to look a certain way or to reach a specific status, and only then we believe we would be much happier with ourselves. But happiness is already part of us right now, don’t sabotage yourself by trying to be a different way. Accept all that you are in the present moment, and if change is required, do it from a place of self-love and kindness with yourself.
3. I choose to spread love everywhere I go.
I have an infinite amount of unconditional love within me which I share with and others. The most precious aspects we can give to others are our time, presence and love. Regardless of how others choose to behave towards you, answer back with love. This doesn’t mean you have to let yourself be treated poorly, it just means that you do not take it personally and choose not to respond the same way. Often times, when others are unkind towards you, it has nothing to do with you, but instead with them. So make the conscious choice to lead with love. It is said that if you want to create a positive impact in the world, do it with your actions instead of words. Spreading love everywhere you go makes a bigger positive impact than you think, even if others don’t show it back to you.
4. I choose to do everything with love.
Whatever you are currently doing with your life, are you doing it from a place of love? You are a unique soul and your contribution to the world is needed, but your intention behind the way you contribute to the world should be pure and come from a place of love. When you do so, you put your heart and soul into it and this reflects on its results and the energy you put in the world. We might not always love what we do and that is ok. We are allowed to have our off days and this happens usually because what we do is not aligned with what we are here to do purposely. But you can always shift your mindset and the way you perceive things, and when you choose to do something out of love, this will instantly uplift your vibration and the reaction of your actions.
5. I love the environment and I thank it for being my home.
Giving love, thanks and respect to Mother Nature should always be at the top of our list. It is our home after all, and the role it plays in our life is immense. Without nature, we wouldn’t exist, not in the way we do anyway. Connect with nature and be respectful towards your environment. This will help you realise that you are one with all that is around you, therefore expanding your vision about life in general. When you love and respect the environment, you also love yourself, your peers, the animals, the nature and everything else that co-exists with you.
