Trust can seem so difficult to embrace, but your soul is asking you to choose it. Your soul wants you to trust because this is what allows you to experience spiritual love. But in order to trust, you have to stop resisting what you want deep inside. You have to heed what calls you the most.
Your soul created a plan for your life before you ever got here, and your job as a human is to trust that plan instead of denying it. You must give yourself all the experiences of love you long to have and all the growth you want to know.
Thankfully, your life plan is constantly making itself obvious, as is the voice of your soul. All you have to do is notice and listen, and do what you really feel called to do – not what feels safe and manageable. Otherwise, you are letting fear take over your life.
If you trust with all your heart, your fears will be released, and love will flood in, unencumbered. You will finally let yourself live out loud! And this is when you truly come alive. This is when the world gets to see just how amazing you really are.
Now I know that it can be hard to trust after the way this human experience has treated you. I know that your mind might hum with practical details that sabotage love. It is so easy to resist what you really want and to rationalize why you shouldn’t have it. It is so tempting to settle for convention that confines your perfect soul. All too often, you might let your ego tell you what you want, or you might judge your most precious dreams to be too dreamy for this world. But your heart knows that dreamy really means magic, and to leap for magic is what you want more than anything on this earth! It is one of the fundamental reasons why you came here. So no matter how much your mind resists, trust what you know in your heart – that enacting your dreams is more important than anything else in your life.
In my own life, the most important skill my spiritual journey has taught me is the ability to hear my soul at any moment of the day and to heed its call above all else. This heeding is the ultimate trust because it is faith – that spiritual trust that underlies all life. So have faith, brave friend, and let your life open so that it completely and fully blooms! Let it become a sacred garden that mirrors the boldness and the breathtaking beauty of you.
