“Trust Who? ME!?” Being born in this world with a heart that needed two surgeries (within my first 5 years of taking my first breath) definitely influenced how I learned to trust my body. This questioning of my power became interwoven with my ability to ask myself hard questions since a very young age. It brought me to a place of courage that was NECESSARY for me. I had to have the courage to trust: that my body could heal and grow AND THRIVE amidst the challenges presented to me. I owe it to my family and community coming together to show me both spiritual and social practices to help make a clear pathway for that! There are so many things money can’t buy.
A part of being human is knowing how life can get intense really quickly and there’s a continual ebb and flow between challenging times and times of triumph. In my lineage, self trust as a woman has been something that I feel is extra imperative to embrace and reclaim with all of the opportunities that are available to me.
We live in a busy world filled with influencers and social media where we are surrounded by people with “best” advice. While suggestions abound and we rely on those in positions of power to authoritatively know what’s best for us, the universe also seems to simultaneously be testing where we put our attention. Our intuition plays a key role to tell us if our choices are in fact in line with our values and beliefs. This is where self trust plays such a crucial role in guiding us as we continuously adventure in life.
People who trust themselves are more easily able to overcome obstacles and survive difficulties. The resilience that comes with trusting yourself means that you are confident in your ambitions and dreams and ride the waves of challenge and you don’t give up or lose hope during the stormy times.
In psychology, self-trust is proven to be both a gate keeper AND motivator for both personal autonomy and self esteem.
