Hello Spiritual Warrior!!!! And welcome to another edition of The Source. This week, we explore the Sacred Power of TRUST.
You are already connected to everything you could ever desire or need right now – but you must trust to receive them. What’s trust? The breath you’re taking right now, the next thought that drifts into your awareness, your body’s constant questing for balance, the trillions of vibrations rippling through every aspect of your being, listening to the tender feelings in your heart, the sensations in your flesh, energy flowing through your mind & heart, the digestion of your physical & emotional experiences, & your ability to transform this moment into the next.
Trust is a Sacred Power; it requires no convincing. [tweet_dis]Trust is a firm belief that whatever is flowing through you, flows through everything[/tweet_dis]… that you are indeed the same stardust that has rippled through the cosmos for billions of years… that you are this magnificent expression of the divine. Trust is embedded. You can’t think your way into trust… you can’t intellectualize it… trust ripens at your very core.
Trust Is an Invitation
In every moment that you trust, you are inviting the magnificence of the Universe into your life with unwavering confidence. And when you waver… when you lose faith in that invitation… you suddenly lose confidence in your decision. You mistakenly believe that you know better than the universe, and you begin distancing yourself from your understanding of the Divine Principle of Infinite Flow. You selectively turn your back on the laws of the universe… on everything you know to be true. It’s like suddenly being skeptical that gravity will hold you down or that electricity will work when you flick on the light.
Trust is when you are fully aligned with the Universe in thought, breath, word, and deed. When you are in that alignment, you allow the magnificence inside of you to shine and you effortlessly step out of the way. It’s as if the Universe is guiding you… holding your hand and walking right beside you.
Those are the moments of spontaneous right speech, where every word you say fits perfectly into the moment and accomplishes your short term, long term and other peoples goals simultaneously. Clarity unfolds perfectly. Sometimes we call this “being in the zone” or having a “win-win” experience. In this moment of pure present moment awareness, every intention you have, every choice you make, every action you take… fits into the situation perfectly. It feels really good AND it serves the Universe.
As long as we stay open & trusting, everything that’s meant to move through us, comes in effortlessly – nourishes us, and we let go of what doesn’t serve us. Open-ness is the key. And as long as the conduit is wide open, the whole process is effortless & fluid.
Fear or Trust
So what gets in the way? What creates the constriction? The culprit is Fear – the emotion we feel when we sense a threat. When we sense a physical threat, fear usually expresses itself through a primitive biological response mechanism known as fight-flight, which helps us fight or run from a situation to protect ourselves.
When our life is not in danger, but we sense a threat to our beliefs, opinions, or expectations, the exact same biological response mechanism inspires us to emotionally fight or flee using words or body language. We forget the Divine Principle of Infinite Flow. We stop trusting that every moment is perfect and that all is progressing as it is divinely intended. We begin to micro-manage the Universe and express ourselves by constricting, defending, or resisting.
Fear obscures the opportunity that sits right before us. Fear colors every thought that has the potential to sprout into magnificence. As the Buddha said, “All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we create our world.” And when we convince ourselves that what we want to happen won’t and what we don’t want to happen will, then we become a victim of our dumbed-down, sad, conditioned versions of ourselves.
But we are better than that. We are stronger than that. We are more capable and blessed than we often give ourselves credit for. When we are trusting, we can make choices from an abundance mentality rather than a poverty consciousness.
Desperation drifts away; and we can then direct our thoughts to the land of pure potentiality instead of to the place of limiting beliefs. And if we make more conscious choices, there is a higher probability that our dreams & desires will come to fruition. So today… let’s just trust… that the Universe has delivered us to exactly where we need to be.
Keep meditating! And in the meantime, I’ll see you in the gap!
