The essence of healing is the transformation of unconsciousness into a higher consciousness. Our word reflects many illusions, and it is our responsibility to choose our perception. Be aware of falling into mass hypnotic programming.
Saint Valentine originated it seems from the Catholic Church. Legend supposedly recognizes that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome.
Romantic stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons. According to one legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl–possibly his jailor’s daughter–who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories all emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and–most importantly–romantic figure. By the middle ages, perhaps thanks to this reputation, Valentine would become one of the most popular saints in England.
The heart has for a long time widely believed to be the seat of the human mind, our spirit, or used poetically to refer to the soul, and representing love.
The heart symbol doesn’t actually look much like the real heart. It’s even thought to be more from the seed of the ‘silphium’ plant!, or maybe even other parts of the female anatomy! It’s more likely a combination of different symbols together.
