No Means Yes
Dear Blessed One,
In 2003, through many unmistakable synchronicities in my life on Boston’s North Shore, I was led to Ashland, Oregon for a Psychic Children’s Conference. I’d never heard of Ashland and couldn’t imagine such a small community hosting an event that would draw more than just a few people, though I was clearly meant to attend.
The event drew at least 600 people (maybe more) and I was blown away by the many brilliant children (and adults) presenting over the 5 days.
One boy, perhaps 5 or 6 years old wrapped up his talk with, “It’s all yes! Yes means yes, maybe means yes, and no means yes. Life is a yes!” Those may not be his exact words but pretty darn close. I recall thinking, what the heck is he talking about?
When I went into town for a meal, I then had a head-to-toe vibrational experience that whispered, welcome home. Tears flowed and in that moment I knew I would move here – soon (it took 3 years).
In my awakening in 2008, I had that experience of YES. I was overwhelmed with the joy of life and of everything being a yes! I remembered the little boy at the conference and thought, Dear God, he’s right, life is a yes!
There’s nothing here that is happening by accident…I speak a bit more about this in the Awakening Tips: A Divine Mosaic.
Here’s something to consider when fighting, resisting, judging, or saying NO to life situations, emotions, events, and people…
Life has already said YES to it or it wouldn’t be here. We are not separate from Life, we are the vessel for Life to experience form and movement. Life is always saying, “Thank you ~ another way for me to express,” and it’s quite presumptuous to think we might know what’s better for life than life itself.
Say yes, learn from it, relax into it. See what life is asking from you in the moment, and then move with the Creative Impulse that guides and flows through you, rather than from some conditioned idea about how things should be. Guidance is soft. It’s subtle. It can seem too gentle or easy.
See if you can unravel yourself from all the beliefs you’ve bought into about what is good and what is bad. Truth comes from within you and it evolves as you awaken. It does not come from a teaching. It’s an unlearning, a removal of that which stands in the way of you receiving clear guidance.
You are a sovereign, divine, infinite and holy expression of the One, and so is everyone else. Re-Member. Listen deep.
Before re-acting, take one conscious breath and ask yourself, “How is life asking me to respond in this moment?”
Much Love and Blessings to You,
“With awareness there comes choice. And so you are able to say: “I allow this moment to be as it is”. And then, suddenly, where before there was irritation, there is now a sense of aliveness and peace. And out of that comes right action..”
