StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Prayer: May You Feel Loved


May you feel goodness within you and surrounding you.

May you celebrate your strengths and virtues.

May your weekend be blessed with tenderness.

May you feel loved, especially by yourself.


A few years ago I watched a video in which lots of people said “I love you” while looking right into the camera. Even though I did not know any of those people, I felt such warmth. Watching that video just melted my heart. I wanted to share it with you here, but alas, I have not been able to find it again. However, in my search, a friend shared this sweet video, that also warms the heart: “I love you in 100 languages in 2 minutes.”

In that video, I think it is so cute and precious how some of the people laugh after saying “I love you.” It seems that perhaps they are embarrassed? To me it shows just how potent those three words can be, and it definitely shows the power of language. Our words do matter. Our words convey our feelings. Some people are more comfortable expressing feelings and openly showing love. Take me for example, I would feel comfortable saying “I love you” more often to more people. I’m the kind of person that signs emails with “much love” or “lots of love” but I’ve noticed that other people are not as comfortable in freely using the word “love.”

Have you noticed the trend in recent years for “professional” people to end emails and texts with “Best” before signing their name? What do you think of that? When I see “Best” it feels a little cold, and I feel brushed off. So I took to typing “Warmly” before signing my name… but only in correspondence where it is inappropriate to gush my usual love!

I am curious to know if you sign with “Best” and if you do, what does that mean to you? Please share your thoughts in the comments below. I am open to changing my view on this!

May you feel loved, especially by yourself.
In the Radiance Rising section at the beginning of my new book, I offer an extended list of spiritual practices, and one of them is specifically about cultivating self-love.
