Resisting what is actually going on in the hope that saying no to it will change it for the better.
You may have noticed that resisting the reality of your situations can be quite tiring.
Paradoxically, saying yes to that same experience may help you have more peace around it and greater energy to change it.
Saying yes to some parts of your life - a condition, relationship, situation, yourself - does not mean that you like it. You can say yes to pain, disappointment, sorrow, to the things about our lives that we are not enjoying.
At some level you may also find yourself saying no to the things that you want, as a way of avoiding the discomfort that change can bring.
Saying yes to your experience means that you accept the facts as they are and you are not resisting what is happening, even if you are working hard to change your situation.
Acceptance of the situation will usually bring more peace and give you more energy to make the changes you want to make.
In this month's EFT Café, Andy Hunt will show you how to use EFT to help you say yes to your experience so that you can be more at peace in your life and have more energy to make the changes you want to.
The EFT Café is on Wednesday March 12th, 2014 at St Oswald's Hospice Teaching Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne from 7pm - 9pm. The cost is £10.
