Valentine's Day is upon us, and since this is the season of celebrating love, I thought it might be nice to explore some of the many functions and powers that love has in our lives.
Love is a force, a feeling, and a truth. It is accessible to everyone across the world no matter their race, gender, or creed. Love seems to go beyond any and all other emotions and feelings - and it makes it a point to set itself apart from all other sensations. Love has the power to heal, transform, and bless, and it comes so naturally to use that we rarely have any control over how or when it comes up.
How Love Heals
Love is a healing force because it opens our hearts and helps us receive the countless gifts and blessings that are always around us. In the modern world, many of us feel the need to wear armor or shut ourselves off from fully receiving and opening all the time - and in many cases we have good reasons for doing this. Love can heal the fears, hurts, traumas, and imbalances by reminding us that we are at home in this world and that we deserve the very best!
How Love Inspires
Love is often the driving force behind many artistic and creative pursuits, as well as positive changes. When we choose to love the life we live and love the unique person we are, it tends to open the flood-gates and remove all blockages that may be standing in our way. When the gates of wisdom and intuition are wide open, we tend to find the solutions to all problems in the most creative ways imaginable.
How Love Empowers
When we live in a state of love, we can make the most spiritual, abundance, and jot progress in the shortest amount of time. Love allows us to feel connected to the world and safe in it while also staying at the center of our own power.
As the season of love approaches, consider way that you can both give more love to yourself and give it openly to the world around you. Love is the most natural, simple, and effective way to create a positive change in the world and it can come in an endless variety of forms!
Happy Valentine's Day!

I am so please to introduce you to the newest additions to the Charmed Design online store - earrings! In the same positive energy of my silk wraps, I have created a variety of wire wrapped earrings that compliment other Charmed Design pieces while adding something special to your unique look. Each pair is made by hand in my studio using artisan techniques and high end materials. I also make sure that each earring contains a whole array of positive energies to inspire and bless your life.
Each pair of earrings is made with a meaningful charm that will bring beauty and inspiration to your personal style. Some earrings are made with genuine Swarovski crystals while others are made with gemstones or pearls.

Did you know that talking to yourself can actually be a very powerful way of exploring who you are and finding effective and meaningful healing options in your life? Whether you want to overcome habits and patterns or illnesses and imbalances, engaging yourself in positive self dialog can give you insights and answers that can be truly healing on every level! Today I'd like to share some simple strategies that you can use anytime to learn more about who you are and explore new ways to get your life where you want it to be... all by chatting yourself up!
Asking Deep Questions
The best way to get answers in life is to ask questions. If you want to know more about why things are the way they are in your body, mind, emotions, or spirit, just ask! Taking time to relax yourself, connect to the thing you want to interview, then ask direct questions just may lead you to surprising places. In order to ask questions that get answers...
- Don't second guess yourself. If an answer comes up, it's meaningful.
- Ask questions that really get to the heart of the matter
- Try not to be afraid of the answers you'll get
Let's say that you're dealing with anger towards your boss and you want to let it go but your mind seems to be obsessing about it. All you need to do is sit down and say something like "What is the purpose for this anger"? Maybe the answer that will come up is "Your boss hurt your feelings". You can then continue to go deeper with the questions by asking "How did my boss hurt my feelings"? Then, "Why does my boss have the power to hurt my feelings", and eventually "What can I do to heal this situation".
You'll find that in addition to getting practical answers right from the power center of your subconscious mind, you'll also learn more about how you process emotions, thoughts, and sensations which can be extremely enlightening!
In addition to chatting with thoughts and emotions, you can also dialog with pain. You can ask your knee "What is the reason for this pain, what lessons does it offer?" and so on. Sometimes connecting with your body in this way opens up great channels of healing potential!
We have the power to heal within ourselves, and this is just one way of tapping into it!
Here's to our health and happiness!
