Jennifer Urezzio and I explored the topic of trusting one’s self. Trusting the self takes practice. We certainly came into the world trusting ourselves, but, life happens and we start to lose ground.
I’ve got a gabillion experiences around Not trusting myself and all the trouble I got into because of it. The inner voice is the Truth, but, sometimes it just does not make sense. OR, in my case when I was younger, I simply did not care about the consequences and moved forward anyway.
I have definitely explored the dark side of life to see what it held, even though my inner voice or my Self, was screaming NO!! Seriously, sometimes my life played out like a scary movie, sans the monsters. Although, I did meet some humans along the way that could have doubled for monsters. And it was those experiences that left me wondering how I could ever make a sane choice and trust it again.
The key is sane. Most of the time that I was meeting and having uncomfortable experiences, I was wasn’t grounded. I wasn’t caring for myself in a healthy way emotionally or physically. So, when the voice came in to move me in a different direction, I was too fuzzy to truly hear it. Now, on a few occasions, that voice Screamed at me to wake me up, which is how I met my husband, Jeff (hooray Voice!).
Regardless of where you are in your process, Know that your inner self wants your highest good. You are not being “tested” (a term that I despise) by some outside force! You are here to thrive, so take a deep breath. Get a meditation practice underway, and learn to pick up the signals that are all around you to guide you into well being and love. Unless of course, you still want to wander around in the murkiness of uncertainty and fear. Want is the operative word here.
Jennifer has created a language of the soul to help you know who you are at your core which helps you maneuver in this world a lot more easily! Who doesn’t want more ease? I pick up every tool available to me and try it on for a while to see if it helps me be in the world in a more profound way. I have found Jennifer’s tool to a worthwhile investment!
