Why Is It So Hard To Trust Myself?

  • 2 of 3

Your truth lives and thrives within you, even if you’ve forgotten to listen or turned away from the whispers for months or years. It lives within you, even if you don’t believe you’ve ever met it. You cannot outrun your truth, even if you try. She, who is you, will never give up on you.

It takes only setting your intention to return to her, to your true self, for your world to begin to shift in that direction.

What interferes is the past. Because you didn’t have the resources to heal them properly, the old wounds have built up between your heart and your mind. The baggage occupying space between your thinking self and your feeling self, interferes with the communication, creating doubt and confusion.

You may have leaned too heavily on your heart, searching for your truth in relationships that did not serve you. Or you may have turned away from your heart, looking for answers in the mind, searching so logically and reasonably for that which could make you make sense. Alone, neither the heart or the mind are enough to sustain you.

Fear not, this is not broken, or lost, forever. You will release that which no longer serves you, and in time the gap between the two will be less and less. Answers will come with ease, for clarity is your nature. You are journeying back to the truth of who you are.

How do I find my way back to her, to the one who knows?

Ask questions, even simple ones that you already know the answer to, and notice how it feels to ask and receive messages. Notice your breath, your heart, the feeling in your stomach. What does your mind do with the information once it bubbles up? How does the truth feel in your body?

Then, ask questions that are less obvious but for which the outcome holds modest consequences. Do I want pizza or pasta for dinner? Should I call this friend or that one? Is it better to schedule this appointment for this week or next? Again, notice your body. Notice how it feels to make decisions for yourself, and to follow through. Watch what consequences arise from your decisions.

Many have been abused and have little self esteem and let others dominate them.
Well Jane B., yes there is a long way women still have to go for full equality but I would rather be a women now than 200 years ago when women were still property, could not vote or do much without the approval of a male.

Of course, never trust your instincts if one is a sociopath-they never have any doubt about what they end up doing to others but for the rest of us we must learn to be gentle with ourselves, be fair and give ourselves allowances that we give to our own family and friends.

Most people have forgotten what they truely believe so when it materializes inside as an inner critic, or outside themselves as critical people, we get confused. I have found that if you will boldly accept that, in either case, it's coming from some conclusion you made, who knows when, as you observed and decided, whether it was based on false premises or somebody elses experience.The key is to accept responsibilty for cleaning it up so you don't keep 'stepping' in it.Never mind who made the mess originality, you can start saying, 'I believed this once and I've lived it too many times, and now, I'm done with it." Then use your imagination to put yourself on a better feeling path.
Redoing the same old rant just keeps you a victom and an energy vampire, always drawing attention to yourself and your personal vendetta.
