Do you follow your “Yes?”

Following your “Yes” is about you taking a step forward in your partnerships by taking action and applying at least one thing you heard from our guests during their interviews this week.

On today’s episode, all of this week’s guests have generously provided BONUS MATERIAL, not included in the interviews you listened to earlier this week.

Each one has provided incredible examples of the power of following your “Yes”. 

Enjoy!

Dr. Azita Nahai

Azita’s big “Yes” was in an abusive relationship.  She had a big “Yes” that showed up as a “don’t go this way” message when she met this person, but she paid no attention.

Where she didn’t follow her “Yes” was when she chose to be in this relationship and then staying in it even when she had opportunities to get out.

Even when people offered to help she was so afraid that she stayed.  She was so disconnected from her body that she did not follow the guidance it offered.

Ultimately Azita had to hit rock bottom and feel so much pain to finally ask for help.  But you don’t have to go that far if you connect with your body and pay attention to the guidance it is providing.

Our “Yeses” really are no brainers.  Meaning they are meant to come from the body. We are meant to feel it.

Azita was approached by the people she worked for at a yoga studio about a recovery program she had taken because the creators of the program wanted to come present it at their studio. 

Without a thought, she said “Oh never mind that program.  You guys need my program.”

The truth was she had not created her Trauma to Dharma program yet.  But they agreed to have her teach it in 3 months.  And she sold a program she hadn’t fully created yet. 

Plus this program is now the basis of all her work.

Camille Virginia

Not Following –

Camille was in a relationship with a man, and after the honeymoon period wore off, he started to relax and show more of who he was and she found he wasn’t such a good person.

He was rude to other people and talked about people behind their backs.  This made Camille feel uncomfortable but she rationalized it by thinking “he doesn’t do that to me.”

Turns out this rudeness he was showing to others eventually was shown to her too.

Though she knew in her gut his behavior was not acceptable, she made excuses for him and convinced herself that they would get back to the honeymoon period but it never happened and the relationship ended.

If she had paid attention to and followed her “Yes” she could have saved herself from much of the pain she went through.

Following –

Camille met her best friend via 3 “random” meetings  over 3 – 4 years. 

After the third time she realized that clearly the Universe was pushing them to hang out together.
