I’m grateful for the opportunity to expand my capacity to love. Moment to moment, I can choose to be in this space. I’m overwhelmed when I think about the fact there is always more room to love, especially after I became conscious of what love was and wasn’t. When I’m fully aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, my capacity to love and be loved has NO limits. The more I recognize the love within myself, the more I open up to love and to be loved by others. My heart feels full just typing these words.
Living from a loving place is a journey I’ve been on since 2016. It’s not always pretty, but it’s all about being the love in the world that I want to see more of. Living from love or fear is a choice I make with every breath—unconscious or conscious.
Today, I commit to taking action to expand my capacity to love. When I love myself wholeheartedly, I have a brighter light to shine out to the world. Being self-critical and not facing the unhealed past can limit my ability to give and receive authentic love. The unhealed parts can taint love with fear. I have to do the work in order to expand my capacity to love, and a part of that is showing myself the love and respect that I deserve.
I make actions choices to show myself love while also making choices to give and receive love to and from others. The beauty of taking action to show myself love means that I don’t put expectations on others to do what I’m not willing to do for myself. Loving myself in action creates natural boundaries, almost like a light force field around me. Having this helps me take those steps to give and receive authentic love in action. It also helps me to stay out of the old stories that creep up, which are aligned with the energy of fear, lack, and separation.
Taking action to expand my capacity to love is not about an expectation to receive something back for what I do. If my actions are fully aligned with love, I will attract love back to me, but that doesn’t mean it will come from where I think it will. I will know if I’m aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace by the stories that are playing in my head about myself and others.
When I’m at the height of feeling the energy of love, abundance, and peace inside me (what I recognize as the state of AWE), I send loving energy out to people I love, trees, animals, etc. It’s my way of giving unconditional love to the world. I see it as putting out the energy I want to see more of in the world.
