trusting yourself

Spiritually Speaking…

IMG_3964This blog post isn’t anything at all to do with anyone’s Spirituality, the spiritually speaking I’m talking about today has to do with your own communication with Spirit.

I know many out there struggle with trusting when their messages come from Spirit or is it what they wish it to be. They are afraid of making the wrong choices, they allow their fears to get in the way… blocking the communication between themselves and Spirit.

So how do you know when the thoughts that pop into your head or those feelings that come over are from Spirit or just your imagination?

I’m not quite sure how to answer this, all I can do is tell you what I do. When feelings or messages come to me I deliver them. I send them out into the world to land where they are needed. It took me years to trust myself enough to do this. It started with baby steps. I would only send out what I felt were smaller messages and messages that could very well be for anyone. As I started this journey and began actually voicing these messages I found that more and more messages came. I found myself delivering more and more of these messages. I found myself also receiving more personal messages for me alone. The more I did  and the more I trusted the more came to me and still today I sometimes struggle with “Oh no what if I’m wrong” but most of the time I suck it up, take a deep breath and let the message be heard. I am always amazed when the message is spot on… and once it’s delivered and I get feedback with a “thank you” or “I really needed that” or “that helped me so much” … this encourages me and fills me with the trust I need to continue delivering messages to those that need it.

Take baby steps and trust that feeling inside you.

Many Blessings,

So many Questions

Where am I going ? Where am I suppose to be? What’s happening next? What do I do now? How will I know?

Open your eyes….. Look around….. You are where you need to be. You are who you are suppose to be… You already have the gifts you so desperately seek.

It is up to you to do the work. What are you waiting for ? It’s as if you think some giant sign will appear from the heavens that says … “You have made it…. You are here.” That’s not going to happen so stop waiting and stop asking.

There are no instructions…. There are no promises… Take the wheel and stop being a passenger in your own life. You are so afraid of taking a step forward that you don’t move at all. You just stand there asking all these questions…. Waiting for a big billboard to drop down in front of you with instructions for every move you should make.

Be you… Take control. Your instinct is there for a reason. Use it! Trust it!

When you begin asking the advise of others for every little thing that comes up in your life … you will start getting false answers. This is because Spirit is teaching you to trust YOUR OWN answers.

It is o to ask someone else from time to time.. after all.. if we look back and think about it.. we already knew the answers before we asked our questions.. we are just needing validation. Well there comes a point that you have to stop asking for validation so much and start trusting yourself.

I don’t post this because I want you all to stop asking me questions.. I’m posting this because I want you to have the tools and understanding to start trusting yourself and start believing in yourself. Before you ask advice … think about how you truly feel about the questions and what you feel about your own answers. Go ahead and ask…. but if validation does come through to you .. then TRUST yourself. Allow your own intuition to do it’s job. Stop second guessing yourself and everyone else.

I know many that will seek advice from me and then another and another and another. Some times we all give the same answers and yet they still question. Some times we all give different answers … and still they are not satisfied.

The correct answer is inside yourself.

Ace of Air – Inspiration  – Insight – Mental Clarity

The answers are clear….. follow that hunch – that inner knowing. You know what to do so why question what you already know and feel? An inner balance will help you find the trust that is needed. Practice meditations and begin following your hunches… the more you follow the more you will begin trusting yourself fully.

Nine of Fire – Inner Strength – Break Through – Growth – Courage – Resolve

You know the gifts and the strengths that exist inside you… and you must begin now to trust that they will sprout fourth when the time is right. This does not mean that your actions stop.. it means you continue your work to progress but have patience in yourself and allow the gifts to fully develop in their own time. It is hard to see our own growth.. but take a journey back and look at where you were 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 3 years ago and even just 1 year ago.. you are growing .. and you must truth that you will continue this path of growth.

Balance – Looking Within – Change – Transformation

It is easy to become overwhelmed in today’s life .. take some time to step back and reflect within. Sometimes we must withdraw to regroup and gain our balance. Let  go of “doing” and just let go for a while. Listen to your inner knowing and when the time is right to begin “doing” again.. you’ll know.

Letting go is the key to wisdom…  clarity is revealed when one lets go.  Easier said then done… I know.. but practice makes perfect .. so pend some time teaching yourself the act of letting go.. even if for small moments at a time. You will benefit greatly from this practice, and the more you do it the more you benefit.

Daily Insight – Trusting Yourself

Trusting Yourself…. yeah … ok … this one is a HARD one!

I’m not sure about everyone else… but I was taught to question everything and that included myself. No one ever said to me that I shouldn’t trust myself but no one ever said I should either.

Looking back at my life so far.. I wish that I had someone to teach me to trust myself and my innermost feelings. Soooooooooooooo many things could have been avoided, had I gone with my instincts instead of questioning what I already knew and felt.

I cannot tell you exactly how to begin finding your own self trust… all I can say is that once you start believing in your own abilities and trusting your inner knowing.. life will start to come together as it has never done before. We all must find our own way down our individual path in life… my goal here is to be a flashlight in the night to help you see what is in front of you when all seems to be cloaked in the darkness of getting by.

I am here to tell you that it is well worth the efforts to stop doubting yourself, your abilities and your own knowing. I can tell you that when I have followed my instincts, I have found a much happier, healthy and enlightening trail along my path. The rewards are far more than just being right… the rewards go much deeper. Choosing to trust your intuition and following that knowledge, fills you with something that I cannot describe.. I only wish that you too will be able to experience the same.

Start out with small steps and pay attention to that stirring inside you that whispers.. turn this way … follow this road… stop… do this.. do that… or that whisper that tells you .. run … go the other way…. don’t travel that particular path. Whatever that whisper is inside you .. listen to it and trust it. The more you begin doing this.. the more you will start trusting and understanding who you are and where you belong and where you are going.

Many Blessings,

Finding Trust

Finding Trust in yourself…. finding it in others is a whole other topic!

The question of the day is: How do you know when you can trust that little voice in your head?

This is a hard one to answer, but I will do my best to help you along.

I can only speak from personal experiences, so please keep this in mind as you continue to read.

For years I would push that little voice of knowing in my head away  for fear of “what if I’m wrong”. Time and time again I would ignore the voice and go another way with whatever it was before me. Time and time again I realized that I should have listened to that little voice.  I’m sure many of you are nodding your head and can relate. If only we could go back and actually go with that first thought.. that gut instinct. If only we could have trusted what we already seemed to know.

I’m not sure when I finally started trusting that voice. I just know that once I did .. everything started to fall into place a lot more often. As I continued trusting that inner knowing, my trust for following that voice grew and grew. It wasn’t something that just happened over night and from time to time I still find myself thinking “what if I’m wrong”, but that is far less these days then in times past.

I remember distinctly a particular time in my life when chaos was all around me. I was having a migraine that had at that point lasted for more than 3 days.  I was desperate for relief. I remember sitting at my desk at home, with my head in my hands asking for help from the universe. Suddenly I had this urge to take a piece of amethyst I had laying on the book shelf behind me … go up to bed and go to sleep. The likely hood of me falling to sleep with this headache wasn’t very good, but I did it anyway. I thought to myself, what do I have to lose. I actually fell asleep and fell asleep quickly. I woke up with the amethyst still in my hand and no headache at all. I was a bit startled by it all and in disbelief. I ran straight down to my computer to look up the properties of amethyst. The first thing listed on the site I first clicked was headache relief. OMG! How did I know to do that? It was the craziest thing ever that I knew without knowing I knew.

When situations came up after that one that were similar.. I would just go with that instinct and do what I was being urged to do. I would always look up the info after the fact and find that I was right in doing whatever it was at that time. This is when I started trusting myself more and more. The more things that came into my life and the more that I went with my instinct … the more that I trusted my own inner knowledge.

I won’t say that the struggle was suddenly gone… but having the courage to just take that leap of faith in yourself was the key.

If anyone is worth taking a leap of faith for.. let that someone be you. Trust yourself. You are worth it!

Many Blessing,

Change, Trust and Fear

Change, Trust & Fear

Change is something that must happen all the time. Change doesn’t have to be scary and it doesn’t have to be drastic. Small changes are occuring within and around us every day.

Changing your surroundings for instance, doesn’t always mean a change in location. There are many things in your life you could change if you think about it. Maybe it’s the way you interact with people or a certain person. Maybe it’s routine things you do that can or need to be changed. It really could be anything in your life, it doesn’t mean you have to physically move or change locations.

Maybe there are things you would like to do or say but those things are outside your
comfort zone. Keep in mind the golden rule “harm none” including yourself and then give some of these things outside your comfort zone a try. By doing that,  you will definately shake things up a bit … even if it is just within yourself.

Another rule to keep in mind “Don’t bite off more than you can chew”.

Trust is a hard one. I for one, know how hard it is to trust not only others but most importantly… yourself. The question comes to mind of how do you know the difference between instinct/gut feelings and fear? For instance.. say a choice in your life appears… how does one know if you are leaning toward or away from that choice because of instinct or because of your own fears?

From my own experiences, I have found that my true gut feelings/inner knowing doesn’t cause fear. They don’t make me nervous or hesitate. Instead I am filled more with a knowing, a confidence and a positive outlook. Only when my fears come into play do I begin to second guess myself and question my true inner guidance.

Examine how you feel about all the many things in your life as you plan ahead.  When that little voice whispers in your ear… “Oh no you can’t do that” but everything inside you feels so right and it feels as though you were going against your inner knowing  by not doing it ….. then I’d say that “Oh you can’t do that” voice came from your fears.

If the voice says “Don’t do that” and with that voice you feel a sense of knowing it was indeed the wrong thing to do… then thats the voice you should be listening to.

See the difference?

Many Blessings,
