I would love to share with you the key 7 Steps to How Self Trust Can Help You Trust Others. I think we have all experienced something in our lives that has made us question if we can ever trust anyone else again. I know I have. It always seems to come from those closest to us, a friend, a family member or a life partner.
There is a wonderful discovery to be made in the realisation that when you trust yourself, you have nothing to fear in giving another person your trust. Your instincts, feelings and inner voice are there to guide you when you give yourself the permission to be open, to listen and acknowledge the messages from within.
They say that trust has to be earned, I’m not so sure that that is true. Who wants to live a life as a daily test?! It is not a very healthy state for the beginning of a new friendship or intimate relationship and definitely not an act of self-love and nurturing. It is a state of judgement and doubt, where we are constantly seeking evidence of the failure to live up to our expectations. I believe that over time our trust grows as we experience that someone is reliable, responsible and acts with integrity and honours and respects us. If we receive evidence to the contrary, and we listen, we then have choices. We must also turn the same lens within and show the very same qualities to ourselves.
Trust Your Instincts
When you trust yourself you know what is best for you. You have the confidence to trust your decisions and always work towards your Highest Good. You have the faith in yourself to take risks in life because they are all a part of your growth and development. You have the confidence to trust your instincts and can use them as a compass in your life, guiding you to create a life that is congruent to who you really are. The only way you are going to be able to know yourself better is to trust yourself. Only then will you discover what makes you happy and feel at peace within.
Learning, Wisdom & Self-trust
How many times have you heard, thought or felt a message from within that what you are doing or who you are with is just not right for you? I call them a big flashing red light! Alarm Bells! And yet we can still ignore them. We abandon ourselves when we don’t listen. We literally betray ourselves. We act in self-sabotage. This is not something to be afraid of, only aware of. I have abandoned myself before as I have tried (like many of us) to avoid the imagined pain and discomfort ahead of me and I ignored the truth that spoke within me. My journey took a different direction and I had new experiences that have taught me well and made me the person I am today. It is all learning, it is what we are here for. Your learning leads to wisdom and wisdom will teach you self-trust.
7 Steps to How Self Trust Can Help You Trust Others
- Create the time and space in your life to listen within to your instincts, feelings and inner voice.
Explore yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices.
- Demonstrate the qualities of reliability and responsibility in your day-to-day life.
Turn up and show up for yourself. Keep your promises to yourself.
- Be truthful with yourself
Become more mindful of your motives and intentions. Act with integrity and honour your values. Build an authentic relationship with yourself so that you know what you stand for, what makes you happy and what gives you peace within.
- Respect yourself and create healthy boundaries.
Don’t say maybe if you mean No.
- Know you always have a choice.
If you feel confused, stuck, lost or in self-doubt know that you can make another choice. Sit quietly and ask the questions you need answered and listen within for direction.
- Remember everything is there to teach us, we are here to learn.
Through self-trust you are learning to have faith in yourself and to rely on your inner resources, emotional, mental and physical to guide you on your path.
- What you have experienced thus far has made you who you are today.
There is no greater security than that which lies within as you grow in confidence and trust.
You miss 100% of the opportunities you don’t take.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to ones courage.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller
“Trust creates the flow and gentles the mind-body-spirit. When I trust myself I am able to enter fully into the process of discovering and creating who I am. When I trust my own inner process I am able to become what I am meant to become.” – Jack R. Gibb
