One day I was giving a presentation about my life purpose. I was sharing this message with some very dear friends. At the end of my presentation, one of my friends said to me “do you know that you shake your head back and forth all the time, as if you are saying “no” or you are unsure?” Here I was sharing my message from the heart, but my body language was betraying my message.
I reflected on this for quite awhile. Was there something in my message that I didn’t believe? Was I doubtful of what I was sharing? Did I feel like I was lying sharing my beliefs? As I probed I got more confused because I really did believe everything I was sharing. My message was a truth for me and from the heart. So why is my body language saying “no”?
The answer began to well up from my soul. I was not saying “no” to my message. I was saying “no” to life. Everyday, all day, “No!” To life! My life! This came out when I talked to people, pondered, and worked. I had gotten in the habit of shaking my head back and forth and saying “No!”
I resolved then and there to strongly say “Yes!” to my life!
Where to start?
Try this right now. Move your chin from level position down to your chest and then slowly up to the sky. Start out slow saying “yes!” Then begin to increase your speed and shorten the distance to your chest and to the sky. Do this until you have reached a normal affirmative head nod. Increase your exuberance in you declaration of “Yes!”
This may seem like a silly thing, but when I first started doing this it made me dizzy. My life had been difficult for a long time. I was so used to saying “no,” I felt a little sick starting out and my brain hurt. Thoughts swirled through my mind. “Nodding your head shouldn’t be this hard, this can’t be right, this can’t be a big deal.” It is a big deal!! I needed my body to follow suit with my new beliefs!
To give my head support in creating this new habit I would put my hands on either side of my face. This helped me to keep my head from going side to side and to focus on my head going up and down.
What will this do?
Have you ever heard of the law of attraction? What you give out to the world comes back to you. If you put out a negative “No!” you will attract the negative things in this life. Pain, hardships, debt, dis-empowering relationships, disease, depression & lack. If you put out a positive “Yes!” you will attract the positive in this life! Joy, happiness, peace, positive relationships, money, health, & abundance.
Start saying“Yes!” to your life today, with this simple technique. Watch as your life transforms. You will attract the things you have always wanted by simply choosing the life you have and declaring “Yes!”
