Week 7 – Valentine Love: A fun way to let others know they matter


On March 8th, my husband Michael will join psychic medium, James Van Praagh for a special “Evening of Spirit” event at the Firehouse Theater in Newburyport, MA.  The event is limited to 190 people and tickets are going fast.  As part of our yearlong “good stuff give-away,” I’ve requested two free tickets so I could share them with someone on our list.  We’ll be choosing a winner at random at the end of February.  You can sign up here and get more info about the event here.

Hay House has added a new “I Can Do It” conference in New York City on 9/17 – 9/18 where I’ll be joined by Louise Hay, Iyanla Vanzant and other great teachers for a terrific weekend.  For more info, visit here.

I’m live on the radio this week spreading the love (2/14 at 5pm ET/2pm PT) and you can listen by visiting  You can also call for lasercoaching at (866) 254-1579.

Have a fantastic week!

Topic of the Week

Valentine Love

Earlier this week, a Facebook pal, Karen, shared a great idea with me on my Facebook Page.  She wrote, “I’ll be spending the day on Monday giving Valentine’s Day cards to strangers with hand-written messages and affirmations (some I borrowed from you!), telling them they matter and are loved.”  Karen invited me to join her (I’m in!) and this week I’m passing her invitation on to you. 

How about making this whole week a celebration of love?  Remember the little packages of Valentine’s you used to get as a kid?   The ones you’d fill out and bring to school?  Well, go out some time today, pick up a package or two, open it up, and write the words “You are loved!” on each card (and any additional message you feel inclined to share).   Then, put each Valentine in an envelope, draw a heart on the outside, and put them in your purse, in your car, or in your briefcase, and get ready for fun!

Throughout the day, you can leave a Valentine on the windshield of a car, in the shopping cart of a stranger at the grocery store, on the desk of someone at work, in a book at the bookstore, or on a table in your local coffee shop.  Each time you leave one, silently bless the person with love, and keep going until all of your Valentine’s have been given away.

I can’t wait to get started and I hope you’ll join me.  We have so many people in our global community who will do this, that I’m sure we’re bound to create a groundswell of love.  Who knows, maybe we’ll tip the scales and suddenly inspire world peace?  Now that’s an intention I can wrap my arms around !

Have fun and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Take Action Challenge

Along with sharing your love with others this week, do something special for your sweet Self.  Buy yourself a valentine and fill it with all the things you appreciate about yourself.  Or get yourself a gift, wrap it up, and give it to yourself at the end of the day (I still have – and cherish – the gift I gave myself years ago when I was single and feeling a bit sad on Valentine’s Day).  Write the words “You Are Loved!” in red magic marker, surround it with a heart, and keep it in view all week long.  Trust me, you’ll smile every time you see it!

This week’s video is of one of my favorite performers singing about love – it’s for my sister, Shelly .  You’ll find it here
