Lack of Trust Was Killing Me…
In spiritual circles we hear a lot about trust – the holy grail of spiritual practices. In all my years of being on a spiritual path, and helping others learn about theirs, trust was so elusive.
How does one trust? Being action-oriented, I didn’t understand what I could DO to trust. What I did know, and see outpictured in my life, was that I was being dominated by the lack of it.
I wanted freedom, and relying on the outside world for that was a fool’s game. What I discovered was that this lack of trust came from a belief that I was unworthy. I was unworthy of experiencing the unlimited possibilities of spirit in action. I was unworthy of knowing that I am whole and complete no matter what is happening in my outer world.
The Lack of Trust Rollercoaster
My distrust in this thing called the Divine was destroying me. Every day was a new rollercoaster ride of challenges, and every little thing impacted my world.
The total reason we are here is to LIVE. You might want to read that previous statement again. For me, the lack of trust and feelings of unworthiness were creating struggle in my life.
I would like to say that after reading this article you are going to move into a consciousness of pure trust. However, trust is personal. My intention is to offer you some tips and tools to enhance a powerful spiritual practice of trust in the Divine.
Much freedom can be created in your life by incorporating the exercise of trust into your spiritual practices and the everyday moments of your life.
Creating Your Own Spiritual Practice of Trust
Trust starts in your mind and in your heart. The first step is to communicate or connect daily (or several times a day) with your essential nature. That part inside of you that has never known a moment of doubt, pain or hurt.
You can easily do that by simply pausing and just tuning in…remember the Universe creates in pictures and generates from vibration. So as you tune in, ask yourself what does trust feel like? look like?, etc.
Have you ever said to yourself…”but I thought I was trusting myself and the Universe”. There have been times when we took action, thinking we were trusting ourselves. What I have noticed about those experiences, is that we weren’t really listening deeply enough. If we paused a second longer before making our decision, we would have heard the warning bells and seen the signs.
So when you took the leap and things didn’t work out, you started questioning trust in yourself and the Divine.
There is a better way to question your trust…with this simple and complex question: If I trusted myself and the Divine completely, what would I say, do and express in this moment?
You will be amazed at what you do and say after that question.
When you are in the consciousness of trust you are in the consciousness of neutrality. What does that mean? Well, simply put, it means you understand that the world is not happening to you…it is happening because of you.
You are willing to see challenges not as a reflection of lack or something wrong with you and your life. You begin to see challenges from a place of solution, not the problem.
To begin your journey into neutrality, you can start by asking this question of yourself: what do I get to let go of in order to know that every challenge has infinite solutions?
I would like to say that I am 100% in trust 24/7 but I don’t lie. It is an on-going exercise that is supported by continuing my spiritual practices. Trust is built on experience in the knowing that I am whole and complete no matter what is happening on the outside.
