Meditations and Toning on Valentines Day 2009

Valentine's Day turns out to be a focus for a number of groups and individuals organizing meditations and other forms of communion, beyond the widespread consideration of February 14 as a day of Love. In the US and Europe, perhaps other parts of the world, the day honoring St. Valentine is given to expressions of love, most prominently romantic love, but in recent times also a broader brotherhood, as well as love for the environment and the earth. Here is some descriptive material from web-based organizational promotions. First from Johathan Goldman, who teaches sound healing, and organizes each year a day to apply this to the earth.

In order to simplify the Feb. 14th time and activities of World Sound Healing Day here is a summary of information that should clarify matters:

On Feb. 14th, anytime, anywhere (wherever you are, whatever time it is), take at least 5 minutes out of your day and project the heart sound "Ah" filled with Light & Love to Mother Earth, as a Sonic Valentine for Global Harmonization.

If possible, please gather with others in a group at any time on Feb. 14th to collectively tone together for this event.

On Feb. 14th, at 12 noon EST (U.S. Eastern Standard Time), please tone the heart sound "Ah" as a Sonic Valentine for Mother Earth for 5 minutes or more. If you are near a computer, please go to the launching of and join others throughout the planet on this new interactive website in order to do this.

The day is also of some significance to people interested in astrological perspectives, and these are taken by many as a suitable basis for celebrations and expressions of positive intent for peace and for the benefit of the earth.

We measure our global sense of both space (latitude and longitude) and time (universal time - UT or GMT) from the prime meridian located at Greenwich, England. We can perceive the collective influence of this momentous astrological event (February 14th) by looking at the alignment from this globally centered perspective. When we do, something extraordinary and exquisite emerges.

At dawn on 14th February the day dedicated to St Valentine, the patron saint of Love, the Moon in Libra enters the seventh house of relationships. And Jupiter and Mars are aligned in Aquarius in the twelfth house of spiritual transformation.


At 7:25 a.m. on 14th February - and for the 18 minutes of the alignment, I invite you, into the Universal Heart, to add your own intention for Love and Peace, and to co-create the dawning of the Age of Aquarius to that of the Cosmos. Join in whatever way feels appropriate for you. You may choose to align with 7:25 a.m. (UT) or 7:25 a.m. your own local time energizing a wave of intention that will surge around the Earth.

The GCP event was set for the 24 hour UTC day, to include participation as described in the Sound Healing instructions. This also includes the astrological alignment celebration, as well as other meditations around the world. The outcome is a remarkably strong deviation, with Chisquare 87606 on 86400 degrees of freedom, for p = 0.002 and Z = 2.890. This looks like a confirmation of the idea that large-scale communal thought and emotion may show up as structure in our data. But it is necessary to consider the cautionary note on interpretation below.

It is important to keep in mind that we have only a tiny statistical effect, so that it is always hard to distinguish signal from noise. This means that every "success" might be largely driven by chance, and every "null" might include a real signal overwhelmed by noise. In the long run, a real effect can be identified only by patiently accumulating replications of similar analyses.
