Have you ever spent time trying to fit in?
Maybe always felt a little different, like you don’t belong or aren’t quite at home?
If yes, if you’re here it’s because:
- This is where you’re “meant” to be.
- You chose this body, this time and this planet.
- You weren’t forgotten, left behind, sent here as a punishment or rejected as not quite good enough.
- You have nothing to make up for, fix, repent or redeem
- You are more than enough
- In fact, you’re so brilliant that you picked one of the very best places ever to expand and evolve!
So how do you go about embracing this opportunity of a lifetime?
First start saying NO to what you don’t love.
This includes anything that feels like an obligation, or a commitment that drains you.
And then start saying YES to more of what you do love.
I realise this might stir some things like:
– “What will others think, say or do if I say no?”
– “Who will handle it if I don’t do it?”
– “I can’t say no and let others down.”
That’s because you probably like to do whatever you can to make your loved ones, your clients/customers or colleagues happy, right?
Perhaps you tend to push your needs to the bottom of the list, put a dream on the back burner, or do what you think is expected of/from you rather than what you’d actually prefer.
But would it make sense that all the miracles it took for you to be born would have unfolded in the way they did for you then not to enjoy all that life can offer?
Would someone who’s chosen this place, time and dimension have to do anything in order to fit in, belong or deserve to be here?
If you’re a part of this community, I safely assume you have a kind heart, that you want to make a difference and that your actions come from a loving space.
But if you have any energy entangled in the idea that if you do enough, help enough or are good enough that you’ll be noticed, appreciated, or recognised, it can feel a little icky.
I believe you’re about sending more positivity not ickiness into the world, right?
So if you want to say yes, SAY YES with your WHOLE HEART!
If you want to do something for another, do it with your WHOLE HEART.
You see, when your intentions are clear and in alignment with what you say, then the results of your actions will be more expansive, elevated and so much more powerful because you’re doing it with your whole heart.
It can be a little tricky to start saying no, especially if you’ve been taught to please or not disappoint others. You can practice saying something like:
- “This is something I won’t be able to do”
- Or “Thanks for thinking of me. This is something I won’t be able to do in the way I’d like or that you deserve, so I’m going to say no.”
And then be in the clear space of choice and honesty rather than squishing your heart with guilt or worry.
(BTW- the person who asks for your help doesn’t typically want you to say yes from obligation or resentment. In fact, they might not have any idea that you would rather not do it and prefer to find someone who does:-)
Embrace your choice to be on this planet.
Remember that you belong and are making a difference just by being here.
And open to the freedom of making choices every day that align more and more with what you prefer.
So, I’m curious….
What have you been tolerating in your personal or professional life?
What are you willing to say no to (in a relationship with yourself, a loved one, client, colleague, neighbour, your spiritual connection, your business/career or money)?
And to what will you say a GLORIOUS, RESOUNDING YES?
