I Followed My “Hell Yes” & It Changed My Life

The concept of “hell yes” energy is a simple one. When you feel “hell yes” energy you don’t have to think about your answer, or your next move, it just happens. Easily and like a no-brainer. The answer is an Emphatic HELL YES! And if you’re not getting a “hell yes”, it means it’s a “hell no”, or at the very least a “not right now”. 

Before I learned the magic of “hell yes” energy, I didn’t like how I felt on a day-to-day basis. Every day I put on a mask and tried to be productive in society, but I was miserable on the inside. Eventually I discovered Abraham Hicks, and from her I learned how to use my emotions to navigate my life, how to use my emotional guidance system – a system which we all have within us. It was truly life changing, and in the four and a half years since then, I’ve been putting it all to the test. 

It began with the decision to quit my job at a software company, just a few months after adopting this mindset, and spend one year testing the theories that Abraham Hicks had given me. I had saved up enough money to support myself for that time, so why not? I was going to jump off that cliff that she’s always talking about. I was going to trust Source, trust that everything is always working out for me. I chose to trust in the “hell yes” energy, and it started me down a path of inspired action.

This leap of faith changed the entire course of my life, and it didn’t even take the whole year to pay off. I immediately felt free. No plans, no job, and nothing but time – I was going to just see what unfolded. I put myself in a place of no expectation and reached for positive energy as much as I possibly could, and I raised my own vibration by pointing my attention to things that felt really, really, really good. I wanted to know if it was real, if the Universe would match that vibration. On the other side of the coin, if it were true that I am the deliberate creator of my reality, and my reality is fucking miserable – did that mean it was my fault? Was I doing this to myself? Really?? That one was a tough pill to swallow, but it was medicine that healed my whole world. 

Point your attention towards something that feels good and see how your life can become a reflection of that. If you don’t feel good with the direction you’re pointing your energy, nothing productive is going to come out of that. Absolutely nothing. But when you intentionally point your energy towards things that feel good – everything comes out of that. Everything you’ve ever wished for is on the path of most fun (that’s actually what Abraham Hicks calls it, “the path of most fun,”) which is an analogy that really resonates with me, because I like to have fun! I’m very geared toward having a fun life, so that’s part of my trauma of being lonely and depressed. I felt that I was truly holding myself back from having a fun life. On some level, I think I already knew that. I would get invited to go places, but would feel so unhappy with myself that I couldn’t even get myself to go.

Just days after leaving my software company job, a friend of mine invited me to join her on a trip to Japan. I said “hell yes” and then there I was, 2 weeks later, in Tokyo, just before New Year’s Eve. I rang in the new year of 2017 on a Pacific Ocean beach, around a bonfire, in Okinawa, Japan. At this point I began to understand that my life was going to be different now. And I was right, it only got better from there. 

A week later we were in Thailand for 10 days of wandering around Chiang Mai then Bangkok. In what felt like no time, we embarked on the sixty-hour trip back to Dallas. Sleeping on planes has never been one of my talents so during the extended journey home, I slept about eight hours. I returned home exhausted, but had all the time in the world to rest and recover. It took a couple weeks to get back on a regular sleep schedule, which was just in time for another friend to ask me if I wanted to accompany her on a trip to Australia and New Zealand. I said “hell yes,” and we spent 10 days of March taking in the sunny scenery. 

Not long after returning home from this adventure, I set off on a sixteen-hour car ride from Dallas to Delta, Colorado to visit another friend. I spent a week there enjoying the beautiful Colorado summer, then arrived back home just in time for my birthday. Just around the corner was the end of my lease in Dallas, which meant I was free to leave and go anywhere. So when I was invited to become a co-founder of a brand new start up business, it was an instant “hell yes.” The time was right.

I had always wanted to be an entrepreneur, and this was my first-ever business. It took us about ten months to get it up and running, and it opened February 28th of 2018. Now, three and a half years later, we’ve installed a new store manager, which means I’m no longer part of the day-to-day operations. I’m free to do it all again – to clear my space and make my energy as positive as I possibly can, creating room for the Universe to match my rising vibration. And sure enough, it did it again. I launched my spiritual business in October of 2020 with my very first paid natal chart reading. It’s gaining momentum all the time, and I keep getting new ideas for services I want to offer, new “hell yes” ideas. I’m just riding that wave of “hell yes” energy, and if in the moment I’m not getting a “hell yes,” then it’s time for a nap, to watch some Netflix, crack open a beer, or go outside and walk barefoot in the grass (if you haven’t seen The Earthing Movie, I highly recommend it.) 

This all happened because I was willing to bet my future on this truth that resonated with me – that if I raise my vibration, the Universe will deliver things that match. I chose to walk the path of inspired ideas and divine timing, and I can tell you the key ingredient to letting that happen was faith. I jumped off the cliff and it all unfolded beneath me, “hell yes” moments leading me from one step to the next.
