When I worked as an alcohol and drug therapist years ago, I had a quote on my desk that read, “When you learn how to trust yourself, you will learn how to live.” It has taken me many years to learn how to trust myself, my intuition, and listen to the voice of God within.
I often looked outside of myself for answers, thinking someone else knew better than I did for my life. If I had a decision to make, I would say to a friend or loved one, “What would you do if it were you?” I would also ask, “Would you feel this way if it happened to you?” Clearly, I didn’t trust my feelings or myself. To be clear, there is nothing wrong with asking for advice and then making your own decision from your own knowing and heart.
Developing and mastering self-trust is deep soul work. When I trust in a power greater than myself, whether I call it Higher Power, Source, Universe, God, Holy Spirit, Higher Self, or Infinite Intelligence, I can let go and RELAX knowing everything is orchestrated by God for my highest good. I can surrender the outcome, knowing it will be perfect for everyone involved, even those I cannot see.
The more I trust myself, the more I am able to trust God and will hear the voice of God, as God and I are ONE. There is a peace that comes over me when I hear the voice of God within. Trust is a state of being, a way of thinking, and a level of knowing. When I trust, faith supports me.
When I trust Spirit and am patient and willing to wait, I am always provided for and EVERYTHING I need will come in the perfect and right timing. I don’t know HOW or WHEN, but there is a KNOWINGNESS and trust deep within my soul. Here is how Spirit provided for us this week.
Larry has had sinus problems for the last 2 years that appear to be getting worse. Sometimes he cannot sleep at night because he can’t breathe. He has tried several different treatments that work for a while and then stops working.
I called our neighbor and asked him if he wanted to share some produce that we had just bought from Costco. He said, “Thank you, I will come over now to pick it up.”
While we stood outside chatting, out of the clear blue, our neighbor shared he bought a Nebulizer in case he got Covid. Neither Larry nor I had ever heard of a Nebulizer and were now curious and wondered if this would help with his sinus problem.
Our neighbor said, “I haven’t opened the box yet, would you like me to bring it over to see if you like it?” We both said, “Yes.”
The very next day, Larry was talking with a friend who was having some health challenges. She had no idea that Larry was struggling with his sinuses. As she shared what was going on with her health issues she said, “I bought a Nebulizer and it’s really helping me.” Spirit was getting our attention and perhaps providing a solution to Larry’s sinus problems.
The next day, I was sharing with my son, Tim, about the neighbor and friend telling us about the Nebulizer and he said, “Mom, I have one too and I just got it out of my storage unit to use it again. It really works and has helped me.”
I wondered WHY we had never heard about the Nebulizer until now? I don’t know the answer and I’m letting go of the WHY. What is important is that it has come to our attention now and I trust it will work for Larry as it has for his friend and my son.
