Capacity To Love: “It takes courage to open up and heal areas of deep vulnerability”
“Each human individual is created with a profound longing to feel loved. Out of this need for love, you may exaggerate and parade your fascinating qualities, while masking your weaknesses or fears. If you are not committed to looking at your root issues, you will feel disconnected from your true self.
Take a moment to look at how you are handling yourself. Are you being open and honest? Are you withdrawing from a situation? Are you masking a problem with some sort of avoidance tactic such as shopping, drinking, or eating excessively? Are you holding grudges?
When your heart is open, you will find that your actions tend to match your words. You rarely get offended. You are emotionally available. When your heart is open, you truly take responsibility for who you are and what your beliefs are. You love yourself more completely. Conflict resolves more easily and you have a desire to live in harmony with others.
Ganesha’s trunk represents the ability to consider how you are perceiving this situation which is significant in your spiritual growth. An elephant’s trunk is an important appendage that is used in its day to day functioning – it serves to remove trees and other large obstacles as well as for more fiddly tasks such as breaking open fruits to eat. An elephant has the capability to handle a range of tasks from minute ones to those requiring great strength. In this way, Ganesha’s trunk is an emblem of his great intelligence and his extraordinary capacity for love. Rely on your own vast array of abilities to tackle your problems and know that Ganesha is supporting you in this process.”*

You deserve love. Divine love, family love, romantic love, love from your animal friends, love from your friends. You deserve to be surrounded by unconditional Love and support and true acceptance. How does that make you feel?
Do you shut down when you think of receiving love? Or do you open your heart, mind and arms wide to receive it? Do you feel completely worthy of Love? Are you able to give love and allow yourself to receive love in equal balance, or do you feel that you must give much more than you receive in order to be worthy? Do you see those you love or those who love you as above or below you? Or do you see yourself equal to all others?
These are all questions to ponder in order to see patterns in your life and your relationships. This is where the healing begins. It is so important to see ourselves as worthy and equal to others in loving relationships, and maintain a harmonious give and take of love and affection. We deserve it. They deserve it.
We are all One in Love.
