Episode Description

Did you grow up thinking that "No" was a bad word? Typically we associate the word "No" with frustration and not getting our way. I know I used to dread hearing "No" and the idea of saying it to someone filled me with panic. I would try to dance around it and often when that didn't work, I would end up saying "Yes" to something that I didn't really want to. Until one day at a party in my late 20's, someone asked to kiss me and I said "No". I was all prepared to explain myself and defend my response when they said "Thank you". Well at that point, I was confused and fascinated. I had to know, why was he thanking me for saying "No". It was then that I learned a great deal about trust, boundaries, and alignment. Over the years I have had the pleasure of teaching others about the power of "Knowing Your No". This episode gives insight into how you can feel empowered to say "No" and most of all learn how to receive a "No" with grace.
