Saying yes to ourselves can be one of the hardest things we learn to do for ourselves. And, it is one of the most important tools we can learn to cultivate in our self-care tool box.

What is "outsourcing our power" and happens when we do it?
We lose touch with the knowledge and the wisdom that resides within us.
Our bodies are powerful truth tellers and hold a ton of wisdom, as do we, when we allow ourselves to access the wisdom that resides within us.
The problem is, because most of us have not taken the time to cultivate deep and nourishing relationships with ourselves, we feel we can’t trust ourselves, or that we aren’t safe people to rely on for our own well-being. So, we turn to those outside others –other people, places, and things—for our safety and well-being.

So, you've read the first Friend Shui post and have now gone through, done some reflecting, have thought of a few "friends" who just aren't jiving with you and what you want and need in a friendship, but now how on earth do you let that person know?Do you just un-friend them on Facebook and hope they never find out? Do you just block their phone number and hope they never find out? That would be the easy way, right? WRONG!
Have any of you ever had the experience of hanging out with a friend and then feeling so totally and completely drained afterwards? Or maybe you walk away from that hang out thinking, “Ohmigosh, that person is such a negative Nancy?” Or even, while you are with that person or that group of friends you feel your whole body tense up and you wish you could get the heck away?
