As 2012 "end of the world" predictions spread through a steady stream of internet articles, books, videos and films, many people are getting anxious and fearful. However, another stream of consciousness is being projected by many others as a buffer for such fears. They are calling for 2012 to be a time of "love", as a means of bringing a positive message to the many doomsday predictions and sense of unknowing. Ayo Handy-Kendi, founder of Black Love Day, has proclaimed the 19th global, theme "2012 - The Year of Love" to encourage a collective, global kick-off towards a self-love movement to create a domino effect of love's tremendous healing power. Black Love Day, Feb. 13th is a 24 hour wholyday celebration and demonstration of love showing 5 specific acts - love for the Creator, for Self, for the Family, Community and the Black Race while Whites show " love in action", along with the other 5 tenets (acts).
The official Black Love Relationship Ceremony, will be held in Blackburn Center- Gallery Room, Howard University, Washington, D.C. from 7 - 9 p.m, Mon, Feb. 13, 2012. Handy-Kendi described,
"The theme, "2012 -the Year of Love" reminds us that only through self-love, can we love others. Starting at 7 a.m. show a self-love activity, then continue throughout the day, on the hour, while including in the other 5 tenets (acts) of love. No matter what may go on with the December 21, 2012 predictions, our ultimate decision to spend each moment of this year showing fierce love for self, creates an increased vibration of love that impacts quality living for all. This heightened vibration counters the vibration of fear, providing a balance of positive action that can actually change outcomes. We've been told there are only two emotions - love and fear. Let's choose love!"
The BLD 5 tenets (acts of love) and the annual theme, offers a more wholistic, healthier alternative to the commercial Feb. 14 Valentine's Day which mainly focuses on packaging romantic love through gift-giving. The commercial exploitation of this concept has caused Valentine's Day depression, suicide, domestic violence and substance abuse, vividly shown in the film, "Valentine's Day". Handy-Kendi has been inspired to teach unconditional love as a higher solution for Spirit, Mind, Body healing in her work as Breathologist, Stress Manager for her health service, PositivEnergyWorks and as a community organizer around holidays, celebrations and rituals for social change, as founder/director,
The African American Holiday Association (AAHA). Healing through love and breathology has helped her over-come child sexual abuse, addiction, domestic violence, homelessness and the death of her teenage son. She has shared her inspiring testimonies, breath services and her coined concept of "holiday stress syndrome" before millions on radio, t.v. and in print. She now hosts "The Saging Baby Boomer Show" on Inner Light Radio, affirming that this group fostered "a free love" movement.
BLD, Feb. 13th has also grown in popularity, as seen by many college campuses, churches and community groups that commemorate this day with traditions as defined in her "Black Love Book". While BLD is the 3rd nationally commemorated African American holiday (wholyday), it speaks universally to the global challenges of putting love ahead of the many racial and personal divides, to return to love to heal all of our relationships.
