Throat Says “NO”
I was just about to write a post about perfection again (an update of sorts) and all of a sudden my throat began to constrict. Then I remembered…that is my sign of NO.
I felt such relief when I felt that and heeded the message. I could sense the heaviness that I was feeling about writing about perfection and so the release of the article to the virtual garbage bin gave me an immediate light feeling.
I love that I have access to a personal yes/no barometer. We all do. A coaching term used to describe this barometer is ‘body compass’.
I don’t always sense my body compass; especially when I’m in the ‘thinking’ mode. When I do feel and subsequently heed my body compass, I feel connected, creative, and powerful. All good things in my book.
What is your ‘yes/no’ feeling state? When did you last heed it? I would love to know. I love “collecting stories” about this stuff!
