Do you trust yourself? Do you trust yourself in your business? Do you trust yourself raising your children? Do you trust yourself in romantic relationships? It's a question that is essential because, for me, I'm learning where and why I have anxiety. I went to a 3-day workshop in Costa Rica on finding inner peace. I had a big realization that my anxiety stems from not trusting myself, not trusting others or deep down not trusting the universe, which surprised me.
I talk about in my book, Intuitive Business Connections, the importance of trust, being a trustworthy person and being trusted. Now I want to take it another step deeper towards ourselves. Do you trust your own judgment? There have been entrepreneurs that have tried and failed, and now they no longer trust their intuition. They no longer trust their creative ideas. They no longer trust other people's suggestions or partners who want to collaborate with them because of an error they made in the past. I feel like that's so unfortunate.
What could you manifest if you really trusted yourself? I mean, wholeheartedly, when you receive your intuition, you trust it is clear. Then how can you have the stress and anxiety. I am a work in progress as I often talk about my own pitfalls and the times when I didn't follow my intuition. I believe there's no judgement to either, but simply a choice if you want an easier path or do you want a more complicated and difficult path? Do you want peace of mind and ease in your life, or do you want a little bit more drama? It's just a choice and we all, as humans, have free will and choices of what direction we want to go. Sometimes I choose an easy path and sometimes I choose the more complicated. I guess in order to experience and to learn to trust my intuition more.
I feel like the more I trust the little things such as contact this person now, do this, try that, my confidence grows for the bigger things. Then when I'm really confronted with a huge life decision, I don't have to be so anxious or scared about it. I know that I can trust myself. I know what is a strong yes for me and what is a strong no for me. In the authentic relating world, there's these games which is called Yes, and No. By practicing in front of another person, saying yes, yes, yes, then no, no, no when they ask you questions. Practicing feeling what it feels like in the body to say “Yes” and “No” and knowing internally what is right for you.
I encourage you to sit in silence. Stop in a day, listen to yourself. When you have these intuitive hits, take the inspired action. If you don't take inspired action, you'll never know if that will benefit you in your life. This may help you to be able to trust others and trust the universe. I think there's a huge ripple effect and trust is so essential in all aspects of your life. If I can't trust a friend, then they won't be my friend. If I can't trust my partner, then I won't be in a relationship with him. For me trust is a foundation. I can't trust one of my employees, they won't be an employee for long. I value trust a lot in my company.
I invite you to share examples, so the others can learn from you. We're all teachers and can learn from one another. This is simply a question to spark conversation. I'm learning with you and sharing my own personal experiences, but I want to hear from you. Your message could have the power to help someone else to trust themselves more. Thanks again for watching.
