Trusting oneself might be the most underrated spiritual practice, but the most significant.
As a society, we have become disconnected with ourselves and have hidden our senses like instinct and intuition. We are more connected to technology than we are to ourselves these days. Trusting yourself as a spiritual practice, starts by creating space to check in with yourself. Taking moments of mindfulness to make sure you are living in alignment with our intentions, life purpose and plan.
Not trusting ourselves can lead to confusion, out of character actions and speech and sometimes troubled about what direction you should move. If you feel these feelings arise inside of you, sit down quietly and ask yourself what you need in this moment. Listen with your instincts and with you heart. Allow the embedded wisdom we all have to rise to the surface of your mind and spirit–to lead you to the answer. Searching yourself for the answers.
This can even work for the little things, like the simple practice of intuition about what you want to eat for breakfast, checking the weather before you go out for a run, calling your sister or your friend, taking a different route home from work. Our gut, our intuition, and our instincts are speaking to us gently all day long and mostly we do not listen. The distraction and inundation of our modern society keeps pulling us away from ourselves. Breaking us into many pieces of indecision and disconnection.
This will never fail you.
Practicing listening to ourselves, aligning with our instincts and intuition help strengthen our ability to discern, decide and create inner dependence and trust within ourselves. Our unseen senses are like muscles, they must be used in order to become sharp and strong.
Trust when something feels out of sorts or out of alignment of your life. It is your best instincts and intuition raising all the right flags so you can move in the right direction. Listen to what it is trying to tell you.
Trust Your Gut.
Trust yourself above all else, that you know what is the right thing to do.
