3 Positive Tips for Using the Word No

The word NO can be scary to use at times. I love to come from the space of yes. I try to say Yes until I have to say no. Nevertheless, saying NO makes things final, and can be frightening to use.

YES is a great word to use! But for people pleasing empaths, it can be a huge drain on your energy and life. Saying NO can be a healthy boundary. It's OK to say NO!

3 Positive Tips for Using the Word No

Here are 3 positive tips for using the word No.

1. Know what you can take on: without sacrificing your inner power and balance. If you continue to say yes and over pack your schedule, you are creating unnecessary stress for yourself and your life.

2. Review your schedule: See what events you can realistically fit in. Print out a weekly schedule with hour slots and then write in all your appointments (add in driving time, traffic time, and all the other potential little distractions that can pop up or creep in).

Next, look at what you are already committed to on paper. It may make things a little more clear. Now, if you see a lot of empty space, these are your “YES” slots. However, if your schedule is already packed with responsibilities, this would be a great opportunity to see this time as already scheduled and a great place to say no (thank you).

We have a workbook with a template that can help you do this.

3. It doesn't have to be a permanent NO: An important thing to consider is that this does not have to be a permanent NO. Things are always changing, but for now it is an empowered NO with healthy boundaries.

Spiritual healing is a fundamental part of being on the Awakening Path.

This is the practice that will help you to create a new beginning and manifest your dream life. Understanding how each step then builds on the next is what will transform your perspectives and open new opportunities into your awareness.

It is a process of removing past mental and emotional programs, toxic energetic data, and false beliefs that are still lingering in your system and causing you present day pain. The goal is to bring freedom into your wounds and unlock your spiritual and energetic bodies to now carry new energy that recharges your system with safety, joy, purpose, awareness, and unconditional love.
