Saying 'yes'

A few days ago I read a post about saying ‘yes’ and it touched me deeply.


We are all learning that saying ‘no’ is healthy for us. That it is good for us to have healthy boundaries, to protect ourselves, especially when it comes to our bodies.

What I am writing about is saying ‘yes’ while we quietly sit with ourselves, closing our eyes. When we think about issues that annoy us or are difficult for us, when we think of people that have hurt us in the past.


Saying ‘yes’ means stopping to reject, stopping to fight internally. Sometimes I will be engaging in an internal conversation with someone in my head, arguing with them and making sure my point is clear. This doesn’t make me feel good. On the contrary, it makes me feel upset and agitated.


Saying ‘yes’ means to be in a place of peace within myself. It is like we say to the other person or to the situation we think about: “I see you. Thank you for the lesson you have brought to my life. I accept the lesson for this is how I grow and learn”.


I would like to clarify that this does not mean that these people have not done wrong to you or that the situation you are dealing with was pleasant or welcomed in any way.


What I mean is that by saying ‘yes’ while closing our eyes and breathing deeply we are allowing ourselves to stop getting upset, to stop the internal fight. Having an awareness that what is happening to us is a part of our soul’s journey.


Much love to you all.
