Greetings from the
Valentine's Day emphasizes Eros love, which
is love between two lovers. Many project their fantasies and

things do not go according to your inner desires.
Why not take charge of your Valentine's Day this year? Do

charge of your day by giving rather than waiting to receive
something that may or may not meet your expectations. Consider
contacting a friend or family member you truly care about and
enjoy philios love and companionship.

QUESTION: Hi Suzanne. I am still
enjoying your newsletter. Another question for you
follows..... In the introduction to your book
'Enlightening Cinderella' you state ..."we can only
attract a partner similar to us in consciousness, with
similar lessons to learn."
I have noted in and through my communication with my partner
on 'hot' topics (important issues for our relationship) that
although I learn a lot from the experience through his
feedback and my own reactions, I always feel like I'm the
'baby' or 'inferior one' and he the 'superior one' in the
