[VIDEO] Worthiness and Love
What stories are you telling yourself around deservedness? About the receptiveness of energy return? About your worthiness of receiving help or love or of needing help, for that matter?
I've been pondering this lately, about the pattern of giving but not allowing anything back in.
I actually shot this video a little while ago, but I wasn't sure where I was going with it! I didn't understand why I was feeling the impulse to share these particular thoughts. And then today, I read something in Amanda's Membership program that made a lightbulb go off. I am paraphrasing here, but basically the idea was that when you're extending yourself to another, there is a healing, or a return somewhere down the line. If there isn't, that is over-extension.
So, this idea of over-extension, of burnout, of energy-return, they are all interconnected, all one in the same, really.
I ask you this: if you feel yourself burning out, where are you not getting back? And you know what, let's dispel this myth of acting out of Love and doing so without needing anything back. It's all about balance! Sure, you shouldn't head out into the world, "doing" just to see what you'll receive. But on the other hand, if you don't make sure you're being refilled, how can you expect to keep sending out that love? How can you expect to keep running on fumes? You deserve more than that.
You give. But do you allow the reception of love back in?
Wishing that you know your worth, deep down into your bones.
