T for Trust. The A to Z of Conscious Living

A to Z T
Trust

Trust in yourself. Trust in the Universe. Trust that all will be ok in the end, and if it’s not ok then it’s not the end.

Now you know you are not who you think you are you can begin to build a relationship with the real you. In the absence of your script you are your true self and you can trust the real you to guide you for the rest of your life’s journey.

In H for Heart we talked about our heart being at the core of us, our soul, from which we can take guidance via our emotions and intuitions. When we learn to shift from our head and our thinking to our heart and our feelings we take the helm again and our lives open up to new possibilities. We must place our trust in ourselves to know what paths we should take.

This trust in our emotions and intuitions may have to be relearnt. In our society today we have become so dependent on factual proof that we are almost scathing of anything we can’t prove to be true in a scientific way. It is true that science has come a long way and we have evolved as a result, but the balance has gone too far the other way. Just because something can’t be proved beyond doubt, doesn’t mean it is not true.

Intuition was a skill, in fact a life saver, back in prehistoric days. When communications were basic all they had was intuition to base their decisions upon. Over the years as communications became more advanced we began to leave that intuitive ability behind in favour of more factual and scientific ways of communicating.

We need to get that skill as a basic tool for survival. Mothers have a natural instinct where their children are concerned and ‘know’ things to be true based on their intuition. However, even in this most natural of human relationships, they are bowing to the pressure that health professionals must know best. My son has Autism and does not communicate his needs verbally, or even by gesture when he is distressed. The only way I know to support him at these times is by being still and connecting with him at an energy level so I can feel my intuition about how best to help. Sometimes intuition is all I have and I have learnt to trust myself.

There are many of us who never learnt how to listen to ourselves, to connect with our soul and to practise trusting what we feel to be true. Even the belief in an idea increases its chances of being proved true due to the natural laws of attraction.

We also need to have trust in our own higher self. In E for Energy, we spoke about what others may call God or other religious figurehead, and what I refer to it as The Universe. It is what we are all a part of and what is a part of all of us. This is our collective experience and has a wisdom we can trust. This trust is a faith in knowing that we are not all alone as individuals on our life’s journey, and that we can give our worries, questions and decisions to The Universe with our trust that the opportunities we seek, the answers we desire and the directions we need are all taken care of. All we need to do is be quiet enough to receive the wisdom.

Our lives in the present come down to our trust that all is perfect (in its imperfection) as it is. Trust that our journey is unfolding as it should, and we are living the purpose we are here for.
