Trust is the energetic space between your fear and everything working out for your highest and best. For example, imagine crossing a deep chasm with no bridge to get to the other side. On the side you are standing is fear and on the other side is what you want to create in your life. When you step out into thin air, you are stepping in the space of trust. By being bold-hearted, you co-create the invisible trust bridge that gets you to the other side of fear.
When you open your heart and let go of fear, uncertainty, and self-doubt, you create the energetic space for the universe to assist you. Trust kicks in and opens you to all the possibilities on your soul’s path. The spiritual information coming through this divine channel whether it’s an intuition, idea, or vision guides your choices. These moments when you trust and let go, lead you to something bigger and better than you can ever imagine.
Trust is a whole and complete energy such as love and light. So, there are no steps to take, only experiences that strengthen your sense of trust. Every time you follow your heart, you build trust in yourself. Like stepping stones across a stream, each choice guides you to the next choice in a series of choices.
Trust takes a conscious connection to your divine source. Like having a safety net while walking on a high wire, it takes a sense of innate security no matter what is happening in your life. Even if you feel like you are operating without backup, your connection to your divine source is in fact your safety net. When you trust this connection, you realize that you are not alone because the divine always has your back and most importantly, your heart.
Here’s another way to look at it: Trusting yourself and your inner guidance is like getting into an express elevator to an observation deck, rather than taking the stairs and overanalyzing every step. Trusting yourself governs how you perceive and respond to all challenges in life. It affords you the personal power to express love, flow with the stream of life, and transcend even the most difficult circumstances.
Here are 4 Spiritual Practices to Strengthen Trust:
1.Leaps of Trust: Reflect on a time in your life where you were afraid to make a change. You may have changed jobs, entered a new relationship, or let go of someone or something. Make a list of all those moments where you were fearful, you let go into trust, and it turned out well for you. When you find you are having difficulty trusting yourself and making a new choice, review your list and remind yourself of all the times you already made a leap of trust and it worked out for you.
2.Create a Divine Validation List. Every time you get a divine sign from the universe that supports an intention or gives you the guidance you need, write it down. Then when you doubt yourself or feel uncertain, review your list. This will remind you that you are divinely guided and open your conscious awareness to the signs that are all around you right now.
3.Acknowledge Yourself as a Strong and Competent Person. Let her know she got this. Close your eyes, open your heart, and trust the spiritual information that comes through you as a divine download. Repeat these mantras to yourself:
- I trust that everything always works out for my highest good.
- I am strong enough to handle any challenge that comes my way.
- I embrace any challenges as they are opportunities for transformation.
4. Breathe Deeply and Slowly to Ground Yourself. Breathe in and look within with love of yourself, breathe out, and look out to the world with love of others. Do this until your breath is rhythmic, and you feel calm and centered. Trust yourself and all you’ve created that led you to who you are today…the people, events, and challenges.
To trust is to boldly lead with your heart, and reveal your truth―your inner thoughts, feelings, and experiences―honestly and openly. When you trust yourself, you venture into the unknown territory of your own being. It doesn’t necessarily mean performing feats of external bravery and strength, but rather acknowledging your internal fears, hurts, and imperfections, and acting in the face of them. Trusting yourself to let go and embrace your vulnerabilities is one of the most courageous choices you can make.
