The Necessities of Saying No
1. Not operating on our highest and best levels
2. Not aligned with what we desire and want in life
3. Are not living an authentic life.
Saying no is just a delivery of a word but its a step and intention of staying aligned with what is best for you. When we don’t strive for that balance of Self, the negative energy (fear, reluctance and anxiety) of saying the word prevents one from doing following through it. Therefore, we continue the habitual pattern of doing things we really don’t want to do or should do. We end up engaging people who we shouldn’t or who are not working for your highest and best and a multitude of other things that takes you farther in the wrong direction. When you feel discomfort, fear, or anxiety from saying no to people or things that are going against the grain of your inner- spirit, stop and pay attention to that. When you just simply feel wrong about doing it or being involved with it in general, that’s a wake-up call!
When you have to compromise yourself, your values, your feelings or well-being at the risk of simply saying no”, then that’s a problem and one that can lead to even bigger problems and issues. Remember, you are ALWAYS the gatekeeper of what you allow into your experience. Equally, you can shut it down at any time! Any situation that make you feel compromised, afraid, uncomfortable or unhappy, take a moment to think before you act on those things. You are solely responsible for your own happiness and introduction of anything that enters your life. So the next time you find it uncomfortable saying “No”, then say, “Yes” to balance and peace of mind before you justify doing something that already feels bad. Go ahead and do what you are already feeling strongly guided to do – Just simply say no.
