Finding your embodied yes

I used to have this recurring nightmare.

In the dream I was always much older, nearing the end of my life, feeling empty and tired. It was like the life had been sucked out of me. And it was always clear in this dream that this happened from living my life on auto-pilot.

When I was younger, so much of what I did was automatic. I’d act or respond before I could even process what was happening. It was as if I was wired to hear merely the cadence and intonation of a request and programmed to always respond affirmatively.

I felt like a little puppet on strings, and my life definitely did not feel like my own. The result was a constant feeling of tiredness, confusion, hollowness, and no idea how to break free.

Maybe that dream was a warning, showing me what would happen if I stayed stuck in puppet mode.

If you’ve ever felt this way or feared that your life might pass you by, then I can share what worked for me.

What worked was becoming very aware of my true response to opportunities or requests.

I dug under the automated responses, disabled cruise control, and started paying attention to the road.

But, as you might guess, that’s easier said than done, right?

The automatic ‘yes’ was conveniently tied to who I thought I should be or the kind of person I wanted to be in the world. Without those markers, what would I do instead? Who would I be? How would I decide?

Well, I found a process that helped me connect with what actually felt right to me. And surprisingly, it has never steered me wrong.

Not once.

I had to discover the embodied “yes” and “no” coming from within, as opposed to what was coming from the idea I had of who or how I should be.

And that is what replaced my autopilot.

The result?

Well, for one I no longer have that recurring nightmare. I feel confident in my choices and content with my life, even when it feels a little out of sorts.

I do not waste my energy by doing things I don’t want to do. I am fully committed to the things I agree to and never have that old familiar feeling of dread about anything I participate in. I rarely find myself in situations where I feel anxious, and I don’t quietly grumble with resentment when doing things for others. I am all in on my life.

Continuing my journey, it is my deep desire to offer you the same opportunity to break free. If you’re ready to let go of the strings and stop living on someone else’s terms, I invite you to join me in The Great Pleasure Challenge.
