On Mother’s Day I went to a morning yoga class with a new teacher, Val. She opened the class by offering us all beautiful red roses. As she walked around the room, wishing us Happy Mother’s Day and passing out the thoughtful gift, I sensed Val was emotionally hurting. Her eyes were sunken and the rose stems trembled in her hands.
When Val addressed the class to dedicate her practice to all mothers here and passed on, my suspicions came true; her voice was shaky as she quickly wiped away a few tears.
As the class moved on, Val found her flow which helped us find ours. As we did our downward dogs and forward folds, we all became one, connected by love.
Although Val’s voice was now soothing and steady, I couldn’t quite keep my mind from drifting. I kept receiving intuitive nudges to offer Val a mediumship reading after class. I’d never done that before: go up to someone, inform them I’m a medium and ask if they want a reading. A little out of the ordinary for me, but something told me it would be good for both me and Val.
Through my cat cows and warrior poses, my enthusiasm grew thinking about the unexpected healing I could offer Val on such a sacred day. I hoped she’d say ‘yes’ to my offering so that I could return the favor of her kindness, of the gorgeous roses and her talented yoga teachings.
After our shavasana, I went up to her, introduced myself and asked if she had time for a reading after everyone left.
“Yes” she said, with a few slow tears and a warm smile.
For forty-five minutes or so, I gave Val evidence and healing words from the other side, showing her that her loved ones were always with her. During our time together I was able to pass on much needed ‘I’m sorry’s’ from family members on the other side and provide Val perspective on some heavy decisions she had to make.
At the end of the reading, Val said, “Thank you sincerely. This was such a blessing and the healing I needed. I have never seen a medium before but I asked God to put one in my path. You are a sign from God. And you’ve helped me so much.”
I left the yoga studio filled with pride, purpose and a deeper connection to myself, Val and Spirit.
By Val saying ‘yes’ to my offer to help, she gave me the best present I received that Mother’s Day and I will hold her and our time together in my heart forever.
It’s my hope, the next time someone offers you help, and your first reaction is to say ‘no’ (perhaps because you don’t want to bother someone or appear weak), think about the enormous gift Val gave me by saying ‘yes’ and consider saying ‘yes’ yourself.

PS – Here’s an affirmation to use when you are struggling to accept help, ‘I accept love and support from others as a way of honoring me and them.’
PPS – It’s never too late to ask for help. Grab your pen and a journal. What areas of your life do you need more support in? Childcare? Career advice? An ear so you can talk things out with someone? Now that you have a better idea of priorities, start listing people you could go to for help. Consider those you’ve said ‘no’ to in the past. Has this article motivated you to say ‘yes’? Give it a go: write out a plan for how you’ll reach out to them.
