093: Follow Your “Yes” Friday #26 – Which do you trust more, your “Yes” or your doubt?

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!

Sile Walsh

Sile was in Atlanta, Georgia for 3 months and 90% considering staying on.   

She spoke with a person who she had been in a relationship before back in Ireland and they said Sile should come home and they could get married.

Now Sile knew one, that it was not a good idea to marry this person and two, that this person had no intention of getting married.  But her mind kicked in and told her this was safer than staying in Atlanta and since she had invested so much in this relationship she should go.  So she went back to Ireland.

Upon returning to Ireland she jumped back into an even more co-dependent relationship than it was when she left.

She never didn’t know this was a bad idea, but there was a lack of trust in herself.  She didn’t trust herself to say yes to the new opportunities in front of her and so she followed her doubt which felt safer.

Sile was doing an apprenticeship as a chef and ahead of the rest of her peers and yet something was telling her to go to India.

She gave herself 8 weeks and every part of her was saying “do what it takes.”  And she went.

This ended up being the first of 5 trips to India over the next 2 years.

It turned out to be an extraordinary part of her life because she went from doing everything that was safe, to following her inner guidance and trying.  This allowed her to step into her power and the kind of future that she wanted.

If she hadn’t gone on these trips, Sile feels she would still be the same person she was then.  Instead, by following her “Yes” she has matured as a person and it led to the work she is doing today.

How do you recognize your “Yes” from just your mind trying to convince you of something.

For Sile when she gets a “Yes” she doesn’t know the outcome.  It is about trusting herself and the process.

When it’s her mind, she is trying to control something or remedy something with her actions.

When Sile feels moved to do something without a plan or what it is going to mean, that’s when it is her “Yes” and when it serves her best.

Amy had a time when she met a man and had such intense chemistry that she was buzzing all over and it was exciting and could not stop thinking about him and felt ungrounded.

She used to think this is what the beginning of any great relationship looked like.  And it always got her in trouble.

Within a couple of months it would go poof.  It was like the chemistry blinded the red flag radar.

She has learned not to follow this chemistry anymore because she always got hurt.

Following –

With her partner, Joe, she felt the electricity, but was able to stay very grounded.

The difference was what she experienced with him was an additive part instead of something that was taking over her life.  And she always felt grounded when she was with him.

This was a huge “Yes” for her.  It felt safe.  Unlike the crazy chemistry that did not feel safe.
