Camden just learned how to give the sign "I love you" and in doing so, he's been spreading love all over the place (at Chipotle, at the grocery store, at the doctor's office, you name it and he's signing). It's a simple gesture that we give to each other when we leave. I'm pretty sure he thinks it's just an awesome shape to make with your hands, but I also know he is innocently sharing love with everyone he sees. Because he's almost 3 and as toddlers do, he has no reservations.
What would it be like if every single person he signed to was completely open to receiving this energetic love? Are you open to receiving love or joy from a stranger? Or when things get rolling (and maybe scary) are you opening your heart or only letting a little in because of fear? I know I'm not always open and when things get scary, I have allowed my personal limiting beliefs to run the show at times. But lately I've been reminded of the power I have within me - because parenting a toddler and infant is no easy task and more importantly my growth as a mama has taught me more than I could ever imagine. I have the ability to control my reaction, thoughts, words and action as I attempt to set a good example for two little humans.
If this energetic talk is all too much, just try this on for size... The next time you notice yourself retracting, closing off, or retreating to comfort, try remaining open and repeat:
"I am enough. I am worth it. I am open to receive."
From The Untethered Soul , "Your inner growth is completely dependent upon realization that the only way to find peace and contentment is to stop thinking about yourself". We have the ability to control how much energy, joy and love flows through us, so get out of the way!
