Check out this post with Connie Habash and Awakening From Anxiety
|No is a powerful word – just ask any 2 year old! It can support you in making healthy and inspiring choices in your life.|
|A lot of spiritual people have a hard time saying no, and even judge it as “unspiritual” (heh, ever seen the movie Yes Man?). But it’s not true! By giving yourself permission to say No to what doesn’t feel right, you open the space for saying Yes to what sings to your soul. That’s healthy boundaries.|
Is there something you feel you “should” do that really isn’t necessary, that brings up resistance? Check in and see if NO is really the answer you want to give. What is the YES that is longing to be expressed underneath that – what are you called to do instead? Allow yourself permission for the Nos, and notice the shift in your energy and the new possibilities!

A Spiritual Guide to Living a More Calm, Confident, and Courageous Life
Competent, spiritual people suffer from anxiety and depression too: Spiritual people often find that their own expectations of living a life dedicated to a higher power makes them more susceptible to high-functioning anxiety. Sometimes, traditional relaxation techniques either do not work, don’t last, or, in some cases, actually increase their anxiety.
The missing keys to managing anxiety: Psychotherapist, yoga teacher, and interfaith minister Rev. Connie L. Habash shows us a way to transform our perceptions using mindful awareness, in order that we may live divinely inspired lives. In over 25 years as a counselor helping spiritual people overcome anxiety, Rev. Connie has taught that it takes more than chanting mantras, stretching, or relaxation techniques to calm anxiety. It requires a transformation in perception, moment-to-moment body awareness, and a conscious response to thoughts and emotions.
