Today, I consider an elderly relative, one I have been close to most of my life. Sadly, she does not believe that love exists. When she first made a point of telling me so, many years ago, I was unable to understand her perspective. It was quite some time before I realized that her difficult, formative years were likely instrumental in creating this mindset. The concept of love was subsequently at the core of an enormous disagreement between us, occurring just days before my son's death. Then a few months ago, she abruptly cut off all communication with me, without explanation. I do not understand. What I do know is that regardless of how our earthly relationship plays out this time around, we have a deep soul connection, and eventually, all will be revealed. In the meantime, one aha moment of mine was making this association: if one's mind is closed to the possibility of love's existence, it would be nearly impossible to recognize its presence. I continue to send her loving energy. Undoubtedly, her soul recognizes and embraces it.

The web of interconnection between the visible and invisible continues to amaze me. Those magical links between thought, spirit, and manifestation. Thankfully, I do not need to understand the mysterious ways of the universe in order to appreciate them. Between storms yesterday, my husband and I headed over to the Stanley Park seawall. The winds had died down and the rains were taking a short break, so we embarked on that 9 km walk. Around the midway mark, the memory of the precious image we had seen exactly two years ago, while walking another seawall in the city, flashed through my mind. On that particular winter's day, we had noticed large stones displaying K ♡ M on the beach. Now, I imagined how magnificent it would be to see another powerful sign such as that. Well, I did not have to wait long at all. Within ten minutes of having that thought, I looked down onto the sand below to see a hefty ship's rope spelling out the word love in cursive script. The letters measured a metre high. I stopped in my tracks, nudged my husband to take a look, then filled him in on what had crossed my mind minutes earlier. On its own, that image would have been heartwarming enough. Making the connection to the thought I had had ramped it up to the extraordinary. I must be one of the luckiest people alive.

While walking along a local trail, I noticed a huge, heart-shaped scar midway up a tree trunk, near the forest's edge. This heart likely marking the spot where, years ago, a large branch had broken off. It made me smile. Hearts can be found in the most unlikely places. It got me thinking about Valentine's Day, which led me to consider how we might celebrate this upcoming ♥ day together, regardless of whether or not we exchange gifts of flowers, chocolate, jewellery, or cards. Perhaps each one of us could take a few minutes to celebrate our innate ♥ energy. Close our eyes. Focus on our heart. Breathe slowly and deeply into our heart chakra. Feel the space expand. Visualize the pink energy emanating in all directions, sending waves upon waves of it towards everyone and everything. This is a Valentine's Day gift which will uplift us all. We can begin practising now.

While running errands in the Village yesterday, I stopped in at the local wine merchant. The staff were offering wine tastings, which is always a treat. After enjoying samples and purchasing a bottle, I was making my way to the door when a woman suddenly left the tasting area to come over and speak with me. She told me how much she had enjoyed reading my book and the insights shared therein. She mentioned that her daughter and my son had been high school friends, then went on to ask how I was doing. After chatting for a few more minutes, I thanked this stranger for taking the time to have this conversation, and how deeply I appreciated hearing that she valued the book. It was a brief, yet meaningful, encounter. Spontaneous moments of support such as this mean so much. Receiving evidence that Diary of an Intuitive is making an impact, is divine.
