Forgiveness leads to trust


What if you decide to forgive and let go? What if others do the same?

Simply by forgiving each other and especially our own selves, we go a long way to creating more trust in the world. Forgiveness is a big part of learning to trust.

If you forgive yourself, another person, or a group that hurt you, you free up your own energy and reclaim your power. This helps you regain trust for yourself, your choices, and life in general.

Perhaps you lost trust in yourself because you made a choice that wasn’t the best for you. Maybe you stopped trusting your body because you got sick. You may have become angry at your body and blamed it for being weak, thereby cutting off communication with your body. Having good communication with your body helps you to heal, and you'll miss some important information that only your body can give to you, if you cut off that communication.

Perhaps you put your trust in someone who betrayed you, or let you down. As a result, you decide that you can’t trust yourself, and are angry for having made a mistake.

Be where you are now.

If you’ve been unkind to yourself because you’re not where you think you should be, and you're constantly comparing yourself to others around you, it’s going to be difficult for you to create what you want. You might think you need to be like others instead of like you. If you’re in a world of judgment about what you’ve created in your life, you will miss the point of being yourself, and believe that you are constantly wrong.

You might know better than to throw this type of abuse at another person and expect good results back again. By learning who you are, and loving who you are, you have more permission to be where you are. This will make it a whole lot easier to manifest what you want.

Lead yourself into trust.

If you learned to distrust yourself by watching others around you do this while you were growing up, you can change this bad habit anytime you want. You might have been taught that you can’t possibly know what to do to take care of your body, that you can’t trust your own instincts and knowing.

As a result, you never learned to trust in your ability to listen to yourself and to create healing within yourself. You may believe others outside of you have that power, not you. You might feel like a victim, or helpless about creating your life your way.

If you don’t trust yourself, you may create situations that challenge you to learn how to trust. You may set yourself up for betrayal over and over, still trusting something outside of you.

If this is you, you’re certainly not alone. Many of us were taught to obey authorities outside of ourselves and listen to their wisdom before our own. This isn’t always a bad thing to do – there’s usually just one director on a film, for good reason. One coach for a team, one teacher leading a class, and so on.

There’s only one of you too.

If you allow others to tell you what it means to be you, and how that should look, sound, and act, then you’ll never get to find your own truth. This is you listening to your own spirit. When you do this, you become that unique special blend of energy that only you can be. Nobody else on earth can replace you, when you are being who you truly are.

When you choose to forgive yourself for the errors you made, for not knowing then what you know now, you begin to trust who you are, and where you’re at. Now you can create something you really want.
