How can I learn to trust?
This is one of the top 5 questions that I receive from my women readers, and this week I received it several times.
I’ve answered it before, here.
But I wanted to answer it again today adding a new twist to the answers I’ve given previously.
Lately, I’ve been very focused on two specific ideas, one is the idea that the Universe is ALWAYS supporting me (and you), and the second is that the World I see is a direct reflection of what is going on in me and if I will just pay attention it will do me a whole lot of good. I call this reflecting property the Magic Mirror.
What does this have to do with trusting?
Well first of all, I TRUST that the Universe is indeed always supporting me. That’s easy when things are going my way, when my little world is ticking like a well-oiled clock. Then again what about the days when my own little world seems to be ticking more like a time bomb? That is when I MUST trust that the Universe is supporting me.
And that’s when I look into the Magic Mirror. When I can look at what is going on in my own little universe and ask myself what part of this is showing me ME?
We use mirrors to show us what needs fixing, right? I look in the mirror to see if my hair needs to be brushed, if my make-up looks okay, if I have food in my teeth! Then, I take care of whatever it is that needs to be adjusted.
This is how the Magic Mirror works. Our relationships are probably the greatest tool we have to really see what we are made of, the truest reflection of who we are.
If I am dealing with people who are untrustworthy, WHY?
And if I am having trouble trusting in spite of others seeming trustworthiness, WHY?
Am I trustworthy? Am I behaving like a trustworthy person? Do I trust myself?
On one end of the spectrum is not trusting anyone, ever. This is paranoia…”everyone is out to get me.”
I prefer to live at the other end of the spectrum, an idea called “Pronoia”, being that the entire world is conspiring to shower me with blessings.
If you’ve been hurt (and who hasn’t?) you CAN trust again. Trust yourself first.
Trust yourself. Trust the Universe. Trust the process.
