There are only two ways we show up in our life: either as a yes or as a no. Which one do you find yourself living from and why?
It’s hard to argue against being a yes. The certitude power of yes to all of life carries the energy of infinite receptivity and therefore, possibility. Yes expresses your willingness to claim your power and use it to discover the real meaning of commitment to present or future experiences. Yes invites us to expand into our fullest creative expression of this one precious life. The very thought of or the verbalization of the word "Yes" affirms to the Universe our willingness to be teachable when we don’t have the know-how to get where we want to go.
Of course, saying “No” to certain situations in our lives can also be tremendously empowering. However, it is imperative to check the sources of our responses or reactions to experiences that have and have yet to happen. When you ask yourself why or what is causing you to live life from a place of no, you may find that "no" carries an energy of resistance and/or fear. Undoubtedly, human beings can be stubbornly resistant in efforts to not deal with the potentiality or inevitability of failure, loss, or rejection. It's crucial to acknowledge, however, that living from a place of no can manifest as excuses, complaints, procrastination, and frustration; attributes that can impede manifestation by consciously blocking the Universal flow.
But what if you took a look at and sit with your resistance, especially if it keeps coming up? I mean really took a look at it: meditation, journal, or quiet introspection. This is an opportunistic time to delve deep into the areas of your life where resistance and/or fear are being disguised as no. As much as every other precious Human being, you possess the ability to open up to something bigger than yourself through the powerful practice "Yes". Which one are you going to choose to live from today?
