Many magical and spiritual people absolutely adore solitary celebrations.
What’s not to love about them? You don’t have to entertain or impress anyone and you can – literally – dance like no one’s watching. (Which is obviously one of the best things you can do with your time.)
…So own it! Here are six fun ideas for celebrating Valentine’s Day by yourself.
1. Perform a Beauty Ritual
2. Take Yourself Out to a New Age Bookstore
3. Bathe in Rose Petals
Roses are said to possess the highest vibration of any living thing: the frequency of love. Draw a warm or hot bath, sprinkle organic rose petals across the top, light some candles, and soak up all that love this Valentine’s Day. Optional refreshments: dark chocolate, champagne, or sparkling juice.
Your closet can be a powerful hub of heart-centered self-care. It’s the place where, every day, you have the opportunity to lovingly adorn your body and being.
So, if the idea calls to you, pull everything out of your closet. Everything. After that, clean throughly, with cleaning products that smell delicious. Also sweep or vacuum. Next, clear the energy in your closet by smudging with sweet-smelling incense such as rose, vanilla, or sandalwood. If you like, follow up by misting with an aromatherapy spray.
Finally, take your time with each and every item you’ve pulled out of your closet. If you don’t love it, wear it, or need it, put it in a “donate” pile. If you do, place it back in your closet. After you’re finished, you’ll have a closet that radiates love and helps you feel radiant: perfect for Valentine’s Day.
To create a love altar on Valentine’s Day, start with a statue or image of a love/romance-related divinity or pair of divinities. Then add things that possess the vibration of love and romance. Whatever feels right will do, but to give you some examples, you might choose fresh flowers such as roses or tuberose, crystals such as lepidolite or garnet, fruits such as strawberries or raspberries, or incense such as vanilla, jasmine, or sandalwood. Oh, and at least one candle!
6. Compose a Love Song or Poem to the Universe
Deep down, everyone is a poet. And what is the magical spiritual path, if not one big love affair with the Universe? So on Valentine’s Day, take this opportunity to go to the Source of All Love, and write the Universe (AKA the Divine, God/Goddess/All That Is) poem. Or a love song. Or you could opt for reading love poetry to the Universe instead, for example such poets as Rumi and Hafiz.
Revel in Universal Love this Valentine’s Day as you celebrate with your fabulous self.
