Trust lives in you as a divine energy source, your divine touchstone. Opening your heart in trust is one of the secrets to living a soul-hearted life. To nurture this seed of trust, become aware that you are the powerful source of this energy that flows through you—also referred to as light, God, higher power, universal energy, or divine intelligence.
When you trust yourself, you are connected to your heart, the space of your true being and your divine energy source. It requires more than deep breaths and saying positive mantras; it takes an unwavering sense of inner security, like having a safety net while walking on a high wire. Even if you feel like you’re operating without a backup, your connection to your divine energy source is always your safety net. When you ab”soul”utely trust this connection, you know that your divine source is always with you and therefore, you are not alone.
A lack of trust in a yourself and your connection to your divine source triggers your deepest fears and insecurities. This can show up in your life such as: shutting out your natural intuitive abilities; feeling out of alignment with your soul’s purpose; escaping into mindless distractions or addictions; experiencing energy blocks in your body; and avoiding emotional or psychic pain.
Fear is an emotion that is triggered by your brain, the thoughts in your head. The brain operates like a computer that scans and stores data. It can only view life from the limited perspective of the past or future. When you’re in fear, self-doubt, or insecurity, you are either worrying about the past (choices you’ve already made) or the future (choices you’ve no control over). Fear lives in your head, whereas trust lives in your heart.
Close your eyes and place your hand on the center of your chest. Now put your attention at your heart center. Take a few deep breaths and inhale and exhale through your heart center. Pause and notice how you feel.
Now take a moment and reflect on how trust lives in you. Take out your journal and have a sacred chat with your heart. What is the divine source of trust for you? How do you notice it in your life? How do you feel it in your body? Do you feel connected to it on a daily basis?
Just by bringing your attention from your head to your heart, you can bring yourself into present awareness and connect to your divine self. Focusing your attention at your heart brings you into alignment with your heart and soul.
