Do You Trust Yourself Enough To Love or Meditate?
Do you trust yourself? If you don’t trust yourself, you won’t trust others either.
You cannot trust in others what you do not trust in yourself.
others.We often shut down and are unable to take action because of our fear. Fear blocks us and can cause us to feel trapped.

more. I call this “sinking in.” Meditating does not require you to go up and out of your body. I used to think to meditate you needed to go up and out of my body. When I did, people thought that I had a lot of frenetic energy and that I was a flake. That is not so. The more grounded you are, the more connected you are. As you begin to feel more comfortable being in this stillness, you can add a little more time. Every human has the ability to meditate.
as they can disturb your energy and distract you. Respectfully, leave the cat and dog outside the door.
How does meditating affect trust?

you will begin to trust yourself. Communing in this way, you will begin to receive guidance. Rather than challenge the guidance, trust it. Write down what you see and hear. Did you listen to the guidance? What happened? If you didn’t listen to the guidance, what was the outcome?
paid for, I might add). Half way through my morning, my boss called me into his office to take a phone call. He stood nearby while I heard the emergency personnel telling me my children in an accident and were being transported on backboards to Scottish Rite children’s hospital by ambulance. I found them all in the emergency room. My babysitter and her friend were okay. My children survived. However, they were pretty banged up. The point is, I had intuitive guidance and I ignored it. In fact, I went against it. This event was a game-changer for me. I found out later that she had turned to talk to her friend and did not see the light change to red. She was clobbered and side-swiped because she was not paying attention. My car was completely totaled.
We are never so vulnerable then when we trust someone, but paradoxically, when we cannot trust neither will we find love or joy. Walter Anderson
Definition of trust (n)
In the absence of trust, you do not love yourself. The absence of trust means lack of confidence and lack of self love. In love and in life, our vulnerability is one of our greatest strengths. When we build walls, we miss out on love and we certainly miss out on joy. I was raised by a father who did not trust. He was suspicious of everyone. He raised me to not trust. It took me a long while to learn to trust. When I did, new worlds opened up for me. When we think that something will be stolen from us, or removed from us, we are constantly in fear. Then we cannot follow our hearts because we are afraid of what might happen. We think we are protecting ourselves from ridicule, failure, or having to follow through, or heaven forbid, being taken advantage of. When fears permeate everyday life, we don’t trust ourselves and we don’t trust others. We have created barriers to living life fully. We are limiting ourselves. Often we won’t even talk to people, because we are concerned that they won’t be interested in us, or they won’t love us back. We won’t go for a job interview, because we are afraid of rejection.
If you consciously choose to be open and trusting, using your instinct or intuition as your guide, you will not be shut down by someone who does not deserve your trust. Thinking that it is never safe to trust again, closes you down from experiencing wonderful opportunities. If you have ever been lied to or cheated on, it can be difficult to begin to trust. However, saying that you will never trust again, never get married again, you are saying “No!” to the universe. It is not weak to admit that we fear rejection. But saying that all men can’t be trusted is saying no to the universe. If you are saying that all men can’t be trusted, you are actually saying you can’t be trusted.
Judging yourself from the lessons learned in the past is not being kind to you. When we continue to carry hurt with us, everywhere we go, we are blocking ourselves. It can deprive ourselves from feeling loved and having emotional wellness. Relationships are our biggest teachers. Trust yourself enough to open up to love. It might be your game-changer.
