I believe you’ll agree that it’s easy to trust when things are going as we planned or envisioned.
But, what about the times when things are challenging or plans ‘seem’ to be going completely off track?
Trusting and allowing things to unfold as they are meant to without trying to control it becomes harder then, doesn’t it?
We’ve all been there and I’ve just come through it over the last few weeks.
For over two decades, I’ve been teaching and living the principles of the soul-hearted living path and one of the cornerstones of that path is TRUST. As you’ve probably discovered in your own life, there are times the Divine will send us a spiritual challenge to see if we are truly living our spiritual principles—or not.
Recently, I’ve been called to step fully into my feminine leader energy in order to stay in a space of trust!
Over the last two weeks, a tech issue well beyond my, or my publisher Linda Joy’s, control meant that my new book, Soul-Hearted Living’s release date needed to be moved. Due to technical issues, still not resolved by the printer, and caused by the merger of Amazon’s Create Space into their KDP platform we made the decision to move the sacred release of Soul-Hearted Living to January 16th instead of December 5th. (If you haven’t registered for VIP notice you can do so here, and as a thank you, you’ll receive two guided meditations.)
Now this is when the power of trust comes in.
On Thanksgiving Day, my publisher spent most of the early part of the day speaking with a technical department supervisor, again. After not receiving a clear date from the printer that this issue may be resolved, we held a sacred call and knew moving the date was the decision we needed to make.
As feminine leaders, we knew we had two choices in that moment.
We could lean into the situation, trust that there’s a spiritual reason behind it, allow ourselves to find the gifts that may be hidden in the ‘perceived obstacle’ and stay in alignment with our feminine leader energy…
We could choose to create a story about what it meant if the book wasn’t birthed on December 5th and tap into the ‘what ifs’, ‘whys’ and heavy energy that only disempowers us as women and also embeds that energy into a project.
We chose LOVE, TRUST, ALLOWING and LETTING GO!
After tapping into our own truth, as well as our Divine source, we realized that ‘she’ is asking to be birthed in the high-vibration 2019 energy instead of the current energies.
So, while Amazon/CreateSpace/KDP work on all their tech issues, we have personally moved into new energy and my soul sister and publisher moved to a new platform to print and publish the book.
Was it disappointing for both of us? Yes, in the initial moments, it was.
Then we remembered our roles as feminine leaders and chose to look at the big picture and tap into TRUST that ‘The Divine always has our back even when there are perceived obstacles.”
Moment to moment we always have a choice of how we are going to respond to life.
Tapping into trust is the key to shifting from overwhelm, fear, and anxiety and letting go. Learning to trust yourself when you’re in the midst of fear can be a challenging practice. But even within every storm, there is a peaceful center and that center is trusting yourself and your connection with source. So even with the storm of life raging around you, you can find that center of inner peace within you.
There’s always going to be uncertainty on the bumpy ride of life. Life is uncertain because change is constant. Its human nature to fear change, resist letting go, or want to stay in your comfort zones. Yet, trust gives you the courage to embrace life with all its uncertainty, let go of your fear, and make inspired choices that support your deepest heart’s desires.
When faced with a difficult situation, crisis, or uncertainty, choose to trust and start moving forward. The choice is yours. Even if you choose not to do anything, it is still a choice and a choice from fear.
Choosing to trust yourself and let go, you become proactive and the co-creator or your life rather than the victim of your circumstances.
