Yes, we need to trust our internal (emotional) guidance system, but we can only trust it to the degree that we are aware of ourselves.
Which aspect of you is reacting to this?
The one that’s been shattered, where trust was destroyed, where things are numb and disconnected?
Is it the one you inherited from a parent, who taught you to believe this is a good or bad thing?
Is it the one that’s making you feel guilty moving toward something that feels good?
Is it the one that’s ashamed of your appearance, your bank account, your crappy car, your sensitive nature, your bold and brutally honest way of expressing yourself?
We are many pieces, and we are one. A book has many chapters, far beyond the back-cover copy or the blurb just inside… Get to know your myriad aspects so to integrate and elevate self-awareness. It’s key to authentic connection and communication — within, and without.
Further to that, our thoughts and feelings don’t necessarily belong to us, yet we certainly can get into the habit of attaching our state of being to them, and jumping on the energetic rollercoaster that entails.
These elements are affected by inner and outer influences: those around us, our environment, noises; our health, our diet, our frequency of exercise and movement, our breathing; our routines.
Trust, in ourselves and others, takes time and practice. Be easier on yourself.
