I recently interviewed Dr. Marissa Pei (also known as “The Chinese Oprah”) for the upcoming WORLD MANIFESTATION SUMMIT launching later this year. When I asked her what her definition of “manifestation” was, she replied with, “Trusting the friendly Universe knows what’s better for me than I do…because a year knows better than a day does.” Isn’t that brilliant?
It got me thinking about the word, “Trust.” After years of not being able to trust myself, yet looking to blame the other person, I realized that the only person I needed to trust…was me.
The behavior of other people didn’t matter. I learned to trust MYSELF and my higher instincts, believe in myself and in my truth, create healthy boundaries, and honor me first. By doing that, I become a magnetic attractor to other honest, trustworthy people. So now, I trust myself implicitly. If it feels right, it is. If it doesn’t, it isn’t.
What about you? Do you trust yourself? Here are three ways to gage your level of self-trust:
Where in your body are you getting the “message?”
I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating…I believe you have three minds…your head, your heart, and your gut. When something feels good and right, I feel it in my heart. It feels like my heart is almost lifting out of my chest and causing me to rise. That is definitely a “hell, yes!” When something doesn’t feel right, it feels “icky” in my gut. Do you know that feeling? That is definitely a “no way.”
Your body and soul know all the answers. You are always, always, always being guided. Therefore, you must TRUST yourself to listen to the clues and pay attention to the signs that your physical body is giving to you all the time. Tune in to this and let me know what transpires for you just by doing this one new practice.
Don’t ignore that little voice
If you hear something in your head, pay attention to it. It’s your guidance in another format. Just like you receive answers in your body based on good feelings and bad feelings, you also receive them in what’s known as “that little voice” in your head.
We are ALL intuitive and psychic. Yes, every one of us has that gift. However, some are more in touch with and tuned into it. That doesn’t mean that you can’t heighten your awareness of it and become more intuitive. You can, and you will be glad you did because one of the quickest ways to trust yourself is to LISTEN TO YOURSELF!
You can’t get it wrong
There are no mistakes. None. Everything is a “lesson along the way.” Like Maya Angelou used to say, “When you know better, you do better.” All you need to do is TRUST that everything is working out for you. The universe has your back. The only emotion the universe has is love, and all the focus and attention is on you. Like Dr. Marissa said above, the universe knows more about what’s ahead for you than you do. All you have to do is trust in yourself and know that everything is always working out for you…even if you can’t see it or feel it yet. Just trust it.

THANK IT!: I AM GRATEFUL I TRUST MYSELF FIRST IN ALL MY DECISIONS!
