Mastering trust...what does it take to master trust?
Trusting my next step is just like trusting anything else. Just because I don't have all the details of what is to come next does not mean I cannot trust . What is the secret to mastering trust? It comes from the practice of learning to trust myself first. There is always a voice, however small, inside me that knows. This sixth sense, intuition, is real, and has a knowing. It is an aspect of my soul that is all-seeing and will forewarn me if I am listening. However, I must tune in on a regular basis so I become practiced at listening. The more I practice quieting the mind chatter, breathing, being still and present with the silence the easier it is to hear and trust that voice within me and the clearer the messages become.
Oh maybe you wonder, what about that nagging fear of trusting someone that may not be trustworthy? Once I truly stop looking "out there" and delve deeper within myself I realize I surrender to trusting something bigger than myself and bigger than 'out there'. Does that mean that everything turns out the way I want or expect? It means I have a deep trust that everything turns out for my highest good even if it doesn't feel good in the moment. And as I fine tune my listening the lessons change for me too.
Can I surrender to trusting each experience with a knowing that each experience is for my highest good to experience at this time? Say that three times fast.
Trusting myself allows me to grow, blossom, and become a more radiant, vibrant joyous expression of myself.
All that we seek in the world is already within us. Once we master trusting ourselves all things become possible.
