One of the cornerstones of living a soul-hearted life is trusting your connection to your divine source. As you’ve probably discovered in your own life, it’s easy to trust in the divine when things are going as you’ve planned or envisioned. But, what about the times when you are challenged, or your best laid plans go completely off track? It’s harder in these moments to trust and allow things to unfold without trying to control them. This is when you have to shift from the fear you are powerless over your life to the affirmation that you are the co-creator of your reality.
Source means the origin of pure energy that flows through you—also known as light, higher power, universal energy, divine intelligence, or God, depending on your point of view. This energy expressed through your heart radiates unconditional love. It is the essence of all that exists, and when you access it you are able to fully express your being. Although formless, it is the energetic power to affect physical entities, manifest intentions, and provide you with spiritual information.
This divine energy is the source of all you are and came to be. You are part of this vast expanse of illuminating energy. This energy source moves through space, is pulled into an energy field called gravity, and attracts matter. This energetic attraction becomes thought, which informs the body, and then information, which guides you to speak, feel, or act, and is your direct link to your soul. Channeled through you, this energy transforms you into a creational being, capable of co-creating your reality.
When you trust your connection to source, you can channel it to support the fullest expression of yourself. You are a conduit for this energy and it supports you to manifest your dreams. To a greater extent, this pure connection with yourself and with source becomes the foundation for living a soul-hearted life.
Unfortunately, many people lack trust in their connection to this divine energy source and thus live in fear. Perceiving everyone as a potential enemy and everything as disaster in the making, they continually check the stock market to see if they are financially secure; they worry about wrinkles or physical symptoms, thinking they may be ill or growing old; they remain in unhealthy relationships to avoid being alone; they maintain social connections to make sure they belong; they try to secure their job by working for a promotion; or they feel anxious when anything threatens the status quo or offers an opportunity for change. Consequently, they live in a guarded state, with locks on their hearts as well as their doors to avoid getting hurt or feeling unloved.
Trusting your connection to source is key to manifesting a life based on internal security, not external security. Even though you may often feel like you are operating without a safety net, your connection to your divine source is your safety net. In trusting this connection, you realize you have a reservoir of spiritual information within you that you can tap into anytime.
Trusting your connection to source governs how you perceive and respond to all challenges in life. It affords you the personal power to express love, go with the flow, and transcend difficult circumstances. You can embrace every situation not as a source of fear or upset, but as an opportunity for growth. The divine always has your back even when there are perceived obstacles. You always have a choice whether to respond from trust or react from fear. When faced with a challenging situation, choose to trust your connection with source and make the inspired choices that move you forward on your soul’s path.
