Happy February Boho Souls!
I want to share this special love post with you today, because let's face it: Valentine's day is coming up. I know there are a lot of varied views on this holiday - either people love it or hate it, and I am not opposed to either one, but overall we become hyper-aware of the love (or lack of love) in our lives. So let's focus on the love.
I especially loooove to focus on self-love around this time, because we need to love ourselves too! And since I follow the moon's phases, I know that Valentine's day falls on the Full Moon this year! So I find this Valentine's day is particularly special because of that :)
I wanted to share this little DIY love jar you can give to yourself or to a loved one. Here is what you will need:
- A glass jar
- A rose quartz (the love stone) but any other pink or green stone will do
- Rose petals or other flowers (I included Jasmine in mine also)
- Download the love affirmations (cut them out and write your own!)
- Add your love :)
- Add your own items - a picture, jewelry, anything you or your loved one will resonate with
If you are making this jar for yourself: Gather your items, write in your affirmations, and put all the items in your jar. Place this jar in your sacred space, your vanity, or by your bed. Wherever you will see it everyday.
Everyday up until the Full Moon (aka Valentine's day) take out an affirmation as random and keep this self-love note with you! Say it throughout the day, meditate on it, say it while looking at yourself in the mirror, or say it as you are falling asleep.
By the time the Moon is full, your self-love affirmations will begin to sink in. On the Full Moon, gather your love notes and the herbs you put into your jar and burn them in an act of completion. The Full Moon is a time of completion, fulfillment, and celebration. Whatever else you had put in your jar, let them charge under the Full Moonlight - and go ahead and treat yourself with some yummy self-care. You are loved and deserve it!
If you are making the jar for a loved one: On the night of the Full Moon gather your items and place them in the jar. Under the Full Moonlight hold it up to the Moon and imagine all your love is pouring into the jar. Also visualize soft glowing rays of the moon pouring down and blessing the love jar as well. And then give this pretty jar to your Valentine!
