I have a problem regarding the size of the brush in photoshop and it is that when I want to increase its size it only increases its size a little when I need it larger to apply a light effect in this image. Could someone tell me why this happens and if there is a solution?

You are at the maximum brush size of 5000 px. That is as big as brushes will go in Photoshop.

In cases like this you can create a transparent layer with the effect as a smart object and enlarge the shape as an object, not a brush stroke.

Agree with @kevin stohlmeyer re the max brush size. Also, though, brushes are made at their optimum size for carity and definition. Enlarging them doesn't usually give a good result; having said that, though, a brush like the one in your example, whose edges are already softened, would show this less.
