Valentine's Day Wish
May Sacred Love Flow Between Us

Dear friends,

For this Valentine's Day, I want to tell you about an awesome exercise I use every day to strengthen the love between me and those around me. As I move through life, I like to make it a priority to invite myself and all around me to remember the love that lies always in the heart of each of us patiently waiting to be expressed and shared.

I know that as ever growing numbers of people choose to live from this place of heartfelt love, our world can't help but transform around us. Especially for Valentine's Day, I invite you to share the beautiful exercise below with your beloved and any others with whom you feel a heart connection.

With warmest wishes for a happy, love-filled Valentine's Day,
Fred Burks for PEERS and

The Web of Love is an energetic web which connects the sacred essence of all beings in our world. In the deepest part of ourselves, there is in each of us a beautiful, divine essence which wants nothing more than to love and be loved.

The Web of Love, though invisible to our eyes, interconnects all of us through that deepest essence. It literally surrounds and envelops our planet and all who live here. We are all interconnected through sacred love. It is up to each of us how much we choose to be aware of this connection.

We are all capable of giving and receiving limitless amounts of love. Many of us have forgotten this and ended up feeling alone or uncared for in our lives. The Web of Love reminds us of our true nature. It is a call to join together in sharing the abundance of sacred love that flows within and between us all through consciously connecting with the web.

Connecting with the Web of Love

Breathing the Web. Here is a simple, yet powerful way of connecting with the Web of Love through breath. Close your eyes for a minute and imagine a sparkling, colorful web connecting the deepest essence of all people in the world. You can place your hands over your heart or the center of your chest as you do this. Take a few deep breaths as you open to this beautiful image.

Now, while taking a slow, very deep inhale, silently say to yourself:

Your sacred love flows in to me

Then slowly exhale fully while thinking and feeling:

My sacred love flows out to you.

Repeat this a few times while opening your heart to all the love present. Make sure to fill your lungs completely on the in breath and to exhale fully on breathing out. Breathing sacred love like this for just a minute or less can powerfully shift you into a more open and loving space. Try it now, and invite yourself to really let the love flow.

The "you" in these sacred love statements can be all people in our world, or any individual you choose. For some, it might be easier to start by imagining the one to whom you feel closest in your life. Breathe the web with that special someone in mind and let the love flow between you.

Then with each following breath, envision other people in your life and do the same. When you are ready, envision groups with which you are involved and eventually all people who share our world. This simple breathing exercise can be deeply meaningful in either a personal or a global context. Consider joining with other caring people around the world in doing this.

There may be times when you want to breathe the web, but can't remember the words above. "Love to me, love to you," is all you need to feel the web as you breathe. You can create your own sayings, too, with words that are more meaningful to you. The most important element is your intention to connect with all people on this beautiful planet through the Web of Love.

Bringing the Web of Love into the World

If you are ready to powerfully transform your life, consider taking the Web of Love into your every day world. You might start your day upon awakening and end your day before sleeping with the above exercise. As you start your work, or whenever you feel stressed, take a minute to stop and deeply breathe in the ever present sacred love of the web and of everyone around you. Then on the exhale, fully breathe your sacred love out to all. You can do it with your eyes open or closed.

Silently breathe the web while waiting at a traffic stoplight, with the checker at the store, or as you pass someone on the street. As you do this, realize that literally thousands of people around the world are joining you in breathing sacred love. Invite that beautiful collective love to flow deep into your being. Each time you open to this heart connection, you strengthen the love both in yourself and in our world. This simple exercise can be done in less than a minute, yet as you practice it more, don't be surprised if you find your life transforming in big ways.

Breathing the Web of Love With Friends

Once you are comfortable with this exercise on your own, consider going to greater depth by inviting one or more special friends to join you. Choosing either to gaze into each other's eyes or to keep your eyes closed, feel the love while breathing deeply together: Your sacred love flows in to me. My sacred love flows out to you.

It doesn't matter that you might be breathing love in or out at the same time. Just let it flow in whatever way feels best. Once you feel complete, don't forget to take a minute to join in sharing the sacred love you've just generated with all beings on the planet.
