"Trust is an all-in, two feet off the ground leap into the abyss." --The Akashic Records
I had a realization about trust the other day, that what I have been experiencing as trust is not trust at all, but merely confidence. Confidence in life's propensity and probability to continue along as it has for the past forty-five years, bringing me mostly good, mostly ease, mostly luck.
I realized, standing at my kitchen sink washing dishes, that this isn't trust at all and I decided to investigate the notion of trust a little further. So I asked my Guides, through the Akashic Records, about Trust. Here is what they had to say:
Trust is believing in the power for good despite what you see before you. It is believing in hope when all is despair, it is believing in love when surrounded by hate, it is believing in the positive when all that is presenting itself is the opposite.
You have all been in this place - some in the extreme, others to less of an extreme - where everything looks bleak and seems hopeless. When the test comes back positive, when what is hoped for is not realized, when love is lost, when tempers flare, when hearts sink and stomachs roil. It can be overwhelming to be on this earth and in these bodies and it is at these times that trust shows itself, or not.
Trust is believing that God is good - that life is good - when your child is sick, when your home is being mortgaged, when your heart feels heavy, when your love has left you. It is believing that God is working through this situation when all evidence is to the contrary. When there does not appear to be enough money, or enough time, or enough help, you know without a doubt that God is reliable and that money will be sent, time will expand and help will show up.
Trust is an all-in, two feet off the ground leap into the abyss.
Trust. Trust. Trust. Trust is putting one foot in front of the other when you do not know where you are going. It is moving forward when all you want to do it step back, or stepping out when all you want to do is curl up into a ball, sink into the couch or pull the covers over your head. Trust is believing in the power for good when all you can see is dark and no light. When God's plan is in direct opposition to your plan.
It is taking a leap without a net or a hand to hold or a back-up plan.
When you place your trust in God it does not absolve you of all responsibility. You are still in the driver's seat of your own life, but it means using God as your navigation system instead of the world.
Where are you being led? What is sparking your interest today? Trust that God has a plan for you and for your life. Trusting is giving over, it is taking your hands off the wheel and screaming "Woo Hoo!" while the wind blows through your hair on the highway of life.
Trust is believing in the messages you are receiving about your life and next steps. It is following the signs even when they don't make any sense. It is not recklessness, or mindlessness, but following that inner compass and not the outer ones. Trust flows from a grounded and centered place, not one without a foundation.
Trust is certain and sure, not confusion and uncertainty. It is centered in the heart and grounded into the earth and connected to source. It does not waiver or falter based on external conditions, but finds its strength inside the body, in the heart center.
