The Surrender Project


5Rhythms in Bellingen

I read a book called the surrender project which is about saying yes no matter what, allowing the universe to direct without intervening. A friend of mine said she was practicing saying no as she had been a yes person all her life. It got me thinking about yes and no and about boundaries and how difficult they can be when we didn’t necessarily have healthy boundaries demonstrated to us as children. How can we listen to our truth, respect our own boundaries and not hurt another person in the expression of these needs. Sometimes the fear of hurting someone means we silence the request. Often, it’s easier to say yes than to find the courage to say no. Or, we automatically say no, without contemplating the yes! This week we will be investigating our yeses and no’s!
