Vibe of the Day

'No' to them, 'Yes' to yourself!
The universe knows that a lot of this raising your vibes stuff is to do with how you want to help the world, and probably those around you too. When you want to give, it shows that you have a wonderfully generous, kind and loving heart - it shows you want to make a difference. But let’s talk about receiving for a change.
When you receive, you allow yourself to be replenished with all that you have given and more. And you deserve to be replenished, because you share so much with the world. Know this.
It’s never easy to strike a balance between giving and receiving, but your soul will tell you when you need to receive rather than give. If someone is asking you for a favour and you’re really unable to oblige but do so anyway because you feel guilty or that if you don’t do it you’re letting someone down, you should know that you’re letting yourself down if you give in.
Today’s lesson is a gentle kick in the butt from the universe because it wants you to be replenished. It wants you to have the tools to say ‘no’ to others so you can finally say ‘yes’ to yourself. This is Self-Care 101.
Vibe of the Day
Today you are encouraged to say ‘yes’ to yourself. How can you do this? What can you do to feel replenished? Is there anything on your agenda that you can gently let go? Is there something you can do for yourself?
If you are under pressure from others, here’s a tool for saying ‘no’ in a loving way so you can look after yourself:
‘I am sorry you feel like that/that you are overwhelmed
and I want nothing but the best for you. You deserve to
be happy. But right now I can’t help you with that. So
I’m going to say “no” to you so that I can say “yes” to
myself. Thank you for understanding. I love you.’
You can say this in conversation or you can just say it quietly to yourself. If it’s someone you don’t love, you can adjust it accordingly, but you get the idea.
