No Means Yes & Yes Means No
While every situation is an opportunity to accept or decline, accept doesn’t mean ‘yes’ and decline doesn’t always mean ‘no’. Sometimes we accept something by declining it and what we decline indicates our willingness to accept something else. How can we know we’re making the best and right choice? By understanding what we want as an outcome and keeping our focus on our intention, while remaining open to the ‘extra’ that the Universe can send our way.
Sometimes our most empowering choices can be those in which we intentionally and consciously decide to say ‘no’ and by doing this we are actually saying ‘yes’ to a disempowered part of ourselves that needed this choice. Declining can be a powerful tool that reminds us that we do have choices in every situation and our ‘no’ to something is a ‘yes’ to ourselves. Through our ability to see that declining is an option we are actually closing one door and opening another, releasing our fear and stepping into love and all of the power that goes along with it.
Other times, we can accept something that triggers some of our deepest fears and this choice allows us to finally move beyond them, something we may have been unable to do for many lifetimes. Can we accept that we deserve success, love and joy? Are we able to accept an opportunity to do something for ourselves that moves us beyond others’ needs and expectations? This can be an empowering moment in our life and one that we may have taken lifetimes to be able to achieve. Are we willing to accept love, joy and success, no matter what has happened in the past? Our deepest fears are rooted in the past and by accepting to move into something that scares us, we are saying ‘yes’ to us and ‘no’ to the fear.
Our reality is created one choice at a time and when we choose with conscious intention, putting ourselves and our needs first, we affirm our divine birthright of fulfillment in every area of our life and move beyond whatever limitations our fears have imposed on us. While they can be very powerful, our desire to be happy, to know what life can be like when we live firmly grounded in our power, is even more compelling. And as we choose through our power and our highest good, we affirm that we want the best for ourselves and our life and are willing to allow that to happen.
