I don’t know if I’ve shared this with you, but for many years I had this inner knowing that I was going to write a book. I had no idea how I was going to go about it, who was going to publish it and how it would all unfold, but what I did know for sure was that I was going to write a book.
And with that inner knowing, I started writing. I knew the specifics hadn’t been worked out. I wasn’t going to worry about the how. I was going to let the universe provide the answers.
The book has taken three years to write and many a time I became impatient. I want it done already! My impatience felt as if I was pushing a string. In my meditations, I began to ask questions about my book and what was given to me was a request to add more spirituality and more of me into the book. I became very aware that the book has its own rhythm and pace and I was not honoring it. So, I shifted my energy and trusted that the book would birth when it was ready. I decided to walk by faith, not by sight -2 Corinthians 5:7.
Anytime I got impatient or anxious about the book I would ask myself these questions:
- Are my actions guided by love, or by fear?
- What do I want?
- What does the book want?
- Do I have faith that the book will be published?
I began to live my days remembering the truth of who I am and living my life from this sacred and empowering place. I got this!
Self-trust is an invitation to develop a relationship with your inner self.
There is amazing power in questions!
When you encounter a situation where you feel you’re pushing a string, are anxious or nervous, ask yourself these questions and journal the answers.
Are my actions guided by love, or by fear?
What do I want?
What do I really want?
What is required of me in this situation?
I got this!
The more you learn to trust yourself and your inner knowing, the easier it becomes for you to relax into your life and allow it to unfold with ease and grace. You can handle any situation. The universe doesn’t give you an experience you can’t handle.
Self-trust is muscle. Muscle up!
