Trust is very much a part of spirituality. I am fortunate to be blessed with intuition, and have long since learnt to trust it. Over the years, my intuition has become more tuned as I have gained respect and trust for it. It is more of a powerful defensive mechanism than a producer, but it does alert me very strongly to people who will damage my life and of those who are close to me. If the alarm bells are strong, I know for sure that is a person to avoid.
In the article below, Paul Bauer writes about trust and spirituality.
The Trust We Must Have to Manifest What We Truly Desire
Some of my greatest teachers have taught me that faith and trust are two of our most powerful allies. True belief in your ability to create results in your life is based upon this trust. We know that the first step of manifesting what you desire is to breathe deeply and get centered - therefore quieting the mind. Allowing this calmness to flow through you...
As the book Conversations with God (a deeply spiritual, non-religious book) teaches us, Our thoughts are expressions of the Divine - of God - that we are at the same time the Source and the receiver. Now, this may seem a bit too powerful for some to either understand or admit.
But think just for a moment, if we are given the free will as we have been given - would it make any sense that our thoughts (prayers) would be separate from the Creator? How are we any different?
We carry the seeds of Creation inside of us - we are Spirit embodied. Breathe deeply and ask yourSelf:
"How does this feel when I hear it?" "How can I Create?"
Living from Trust means to remind ourselves that we have this creative Force within us, and trusting that our thoughts turned into action with purpose will manifest what we desire.
Trust allows our original intuitive thought be like a seed that takes hold in the fertile soil of our imagination and is given nurturing by our actions and successive thoughts (more water and sunshine). As this seedling grows, we notice how Trust allows this seedling to reach its true potential. The only things that stop this seedling from reaching its True heights are fear and doubt.
When fear and doubt begin to creep into your garden, let this be a reminder to breathe deeply,counting from 1 to 8 as you breathe in... hold for a count of four, release on the out breath for a count of 8, hold for a count of four and repeat.
You might find it interesting to know that the word "Breath" and the word "Spirit" have the same meaning in many of the oldest languages in the world. In our culture, we have been taught to separate Spirit from Self, when the truth is we are embodied Spirit.
All we really need to remember this truth is to quiet our minds and let go of the constant chatter of the ego.
Calming your mind and knowing that You are the thinker of your thoughts, not the thoughts themselves is the key to understanding your True nature. With each breath, you breathe life into your Dreams and desires. As you breathe deeply and allow the Life Force to flow through you, your seeds of greatness will take hold in your imagination and become real.
Allowing yourself the ability to imagine different ways of manifesting your desire, Trust in your ability to Create. Trust in your ability to re-connect with your Source. Trust that, as the famous guided imagery expert Bellaruth Naperstek says "something wonderful is about to happen." Give yourself the "Space" to breathe, imagine and create.
You already have the seeds of your greatness inside you. All you need to do is to water them (Trust) and allow the Sun (Source, connecting with others who you trust) to shine upon them. You will feel a renewed sense of Energy as it flows through you.
As you sense this Energy, be grateful - for gratitude begets more of what you are thankful for. I like to put it this way, "Thank and Grow Rich."
