Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. This may be a romantic and happy day for some people, while it may be a sorrowful day for others.

Valentine’s Day and other “special days” have been so commercialized that they frequently lead to disappointment, loneliness, and misery because expectations aren’t met.

This day may make you more desirous of a relationship if you’re single. If your relationship is having problems, you might be buying a gift for your spouse or significant other out of obligation while also feeling worse about the fact that things aren’t turning out the way you had intended.

If your relationship is going well, you don’t need Valentine’s Day to remember to let your partner know that.

Because I choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day every day, it’s just another day for me. I try to have love in my heart every day and to show this love to others. I’m better at doing this some days than others.

This channeled message talks about where to find true love. It’s closer than you may think. I hope it touches your heart in the same way it did mine.

I want to wish you a happy day every day, not just a happy Valentine’s Day!


You need not look any further than your own heart to find the love that you seek for it is with you always. Make no mistake. Anyone who tells you to look for love outside of yourself is misleading you, for until you fall in love with yourself, you will never be able to fully love another. As you judge yourself, you will judge another. As you blame yourself, you will blame others.

The same is true about happiness. It too will not be found outside of you for everything you seek is already within you, waiting to be uncovered and experienced. The longer you continue to seek for pleasure outside of yourself, the longer you will experience pain, for nothing outside of you can ever give you what you truly seek.

This is not something many of you want to hear, so you continue your endless search for love, peace or joy and suffer in the process. When will you stop and come back to yourself where everything you desire can be found?

You ARE the love that you seek. You ARE the peace and joy that you desire. You ARE all that is and ever has been and ever will be.

Marisa’s Musings

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard or read about the importance of self-love and that everything we desire is within us and yet, I still fall into the trap from time to time of seeking outside of myself for what I desire to experience in my life. I still give power over my emotions to external circumstances. If something happens that I don’t like, I feel angry or hurt. Sometimes I still blame or judge myself for choices I make that lead to undesirable results.

Although I can say I love myself much more than I ever did in the past, I know I still have a ways to go. I also continue to work on being more aware of how I allow external circumstances to determine my emotional state. It’s not always easy to stay calm when things outside of me are not  the way I desire them to be and yet I KNOW deep within me that I have no control over ANYTHING that is occurring outside of me.

I will continue to do my best to respond rather than react to whatever I experience in my life and love myself instead of beating myself up whenever I feel I have failed to do so. I am understanding more and more that LOVE is the answer to everything and this love is always available to me if I but look within.
