Trust. This word means different things to different people, yet it's one of the most important words in existence. Typically trust is something we have in other people or situations, but trust like that is as fragile as the next unexpected event that could change everything.
At some point in our lives most of us have been betrayed, hurt or rejected, making it difficult to trust other people and many times it's not the fact that we can't trust other people, it's that we really can't trust ourselves. Best selling author and Spiritual Teacher Iyanla Vanzant says:
"There's no greater battle than the battle between the parts of you that want to be healed, and the parts of you that are comfortable and content in remaining broken."
This implies that instead of being in an external fight against this mistrusting world, you're actually in an internal fight with the part of you that says "You're not good enough," "You can't do that."
Those are the battles of the ego and they must be put aside if you wish to become your greatest version. You see, there's an unchanging and stable presence of awareness within, which is your true self, and once again the answers lie inside, not outside of us.
The key to trust is going within, trusting your intuition (Soul) and facing the unknown. Even though you can't control the unknown, you can control what you believe, and your beliefs are what determine what you manifest in your life. And when you allow yourself to be vulnerable, you can trust that no matter what happens, greater and grander Infinite Possibilities will rise up in your life.
