Before you say yes to anything, step back, breathe and take a moment. This is a place where you try on something to see if it feels right to you. You are not blindly saying yes or no to something. This doesn’t require a long drawn out process. You are accessing your intuition to see what the answer needs to be for that moment. When you say yes or no based on this alignment, you will find that you are more apt to be where you need to be, when you need to be there and you are not cluttering your energy with things out of alignment for you.
Remember all real needs will be met perfectly. Many are focused on getting you to do what they want you to do. If you do the above technique, you will no longer be doing things that others want you to do that are not aligned with what is right for you. People can ask you for anything, you have the right to say yes or no. Usually, if people need to pressure you, they are not aligned and they are only focused on forcing you to do what they want. If someone needs to force you or coerce you, it is probably not something aligned with what is right for you. It doesn’t mean that they aren’t working for a noble cause, it just means it is not right for you.
