Say YES to What Supports You!

Healing Message“It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.” ~Edmund Hillary

Do you say “yes” to what supports you? Are you even recognizing support as support? Most of us don’t like to ask for help and support lest we seem weak and unable to support ourselves.

The reality is when you start recognizing and saying “yes” to those people or situations that are actually supporting you and saying “no” to those that don’t you are actually taking charge and supporting yourself in the process.

The universe is here to support you!

First and foremost the universe and your very spirit is here to support you but how often have you pushed away the seemingly inane experience which might actually be the very support you’re looking for? At first this may feel a bit like taking a leap of faith but a little faith goes a long way. When you meet challenges with faith and trust that you are supported and not alone you are starting to say “yes” to yourself. Saying “yes” to yourself is you trusting yourself and then you can start saying “no” to those things which don’t support you.

When a challenge be it emotional, physical or otherwise comes your way, take a deep breath, ask for support and be aware of the support that comes your way. Support is not support if you push it away or resist it. Support is not support if you’re not aware of it. Support is also not support if you’ve created a perfect picture or illusion of what you think it should be. Be open to the possibilities that come your way.

Keep an open mind to what you are receiving. Yes, there will be people and situations that come your which don’t support you but with an open mind give yourself complete permission to say no. With every opportunity that presents itself ask yourself ‘does this support me?’ and if the answer is YES then by all means say YES.

Conquer the mountain of ego and pride!

Most often it is our ego and pride which get in the way of our saying “yes” to support. We all want to be perceived as strong but how many of us really have it all together in perfect harmony? Stop worrying about how people perceive you. Send your ego and pride on a vacation and say “no” when they get in the way.

If you were starving and someone gave you a sandwich and cup of coffee would you say ‘no this doesn’t support me’ because it’s not a steak and glass of wine? If you didn’t have any shoes and someone offered you a pair would you say ‘no this doesn’t support me’ because the shoes don’t go with my outfit?

Those may seem like ridiculous examples but if you think back to a few of the things you said no to in the past, there are probably things that are similarly ridiculous. At the time you may have said ‘no’ because your ego and pride got in the way.  Ego and pride are the little voices that say the support that presents itself somehow diminishes you.

Conquer the mountain of ego and pride by making a mindful, conscious choice to say “yes” to anything and everything that supports you! If you really did said no because it truly didn’t support you, take note of what you learned from that experience. Just make sure ego and pride don’t get in the way of saying “yes”.

The universe and spirit are here to support you. Saying “yes” to those things which support you leads you to a place of being able to receive support which in turn brings you more support. Say “yes” to that which supports you and “no” to that which doesn’t.  Take a journey in YES and see where it leads! ~Shine Your Light Debbie

Let Intuition Be Your Guide!

PathIntuition is that ‘gut feeling‘ you experience. It’s the feeling that for whatever reason you should go left instead of right, not to go on the vacation you’ve scheduled or give you the sense that something is or isn’t right. Listening and following your intuition can guide you to your hearts desire or keep you out of trouble!

Intuition is a psychic ability that everyone has. It is more commonplace to speak of intuition than say mediumship or clairvoyance. In every day life you hear people who otherwise don’t ‘believe’ in their own psychic abilities say something to the effect of ‘I just felt like something was wrong’, ‘it felt like the right thing to do’, or ‘I went with my gut on it’. Paying attention to what your intuition is telling you increases your awareness of what’s going on around you.  Like exercising a muscle, the more you use and follow it, the more it works for you.

Are you listening?

Consider your intuition a direct communication with yourself. You KNOW what feels right or wrong in a particular situation. You KNOW when you get that nagging feeling that it’s time to pay attention even if you don’t necessarily know what’s about to happen. If you get ‘red flags’ about something or someone your intuition is telling you something. Are you listening to it and letting it guide you or do you dismiss it?

“Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.”~Florence Scovel Shinn

Using your intuition is indeed following what you sense whether you have the ‘facts’ or not. It is the ‘gut instinct’ that puts you on alert, calms your heart or allows you to change direction without having to know the exact outcome. You just have a sense it will all be good once you go with what you are feeling. It is not necessary to analyze it because most of the time what you feel and sense cannot be measured. Although it might not make any sense in that present moment what your intuition tells you will guide you on your journey.

“I rely on my instincts and intuition, and I feel it’s so imperative for people to follow not THE path but THEIR path.”~Emma Stone

Each of us is on a path and usually it’s not a straight and narrow one; There are twists and turns along the way and it is important to recognize if the path we are following is of our own making. I recently read a book which talked about  the ‘heart knowing’ before we do. I’ve not only seen this in action but experienced it myself. You might not be conscious of it but following your inner guidance system leads you to the truth in any situation. Think of a time when you didn’t follow your intuition. How did it turn out? Did you spend time afterwards saying to yourself “I knew it!”

I can think of many instances in my life when my intuition was literally screaming at me and I didn’t listen. Now I listen and pay attention more closely to what it’s telling me. If nothing else I become acutely aware of what is going on internally so I’m able to make conscious decisions that are right for me instead of merely going along with someone else’s program.

Your intuition is like an internal GPS designed that will guide you in the right direction. The biggest challenge to following your intuition is trusting it and trusting yourself. This can take a bit of doing but it is very simply accomplished; By following it over and over. Pretty soon you will trust your instincts, trust that you are on the right path, you’ll make that call at the right time or change direction just because ‘it feels right’. Go ahead, try it! You KNOW it will guide you!~Shine Your Light Debbie
