5 Top Ways on How to Find Inner Peace through Trust…

You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you do not trust enough.

Dear Friend,

… When our plans fail and we make mistakes, we also feel we can’t trust ourselves anymore and want to give up on life, plans and happiness. The part of us, which invites us to give up on life and everything, is mind or our lower self. It is not who you really are.

It is good to remember that your higher self is always patient, forgiving, full of joy and life. So how can we get back to trusting ourselves again and join the beautiful flow of life? Self-trust is huge, not only for our health and well being, but also in every area of our life.

Let’s look at 5 Top Ways to have Trust today…

#1 Look within.

What happens is, that when we experience setbacks, we tend to look outside of ourselves for answers, but the answers never come. The key is to look within. You know that there is a place within you, which is always at peace, content and full of joy. Whenever you feel that you cannot trust yourself, look for that place, connect with it and ask for guidance from it. One of the most effective ways to connect to it is with the help of meditation. The more you will be able to cultivate the connection with your higher self, the easier it will be to develop the ability to trust yourself. There is that inner being that is always standing by you and it is vital for you to trust in it.

The affirmation:

All the answers are within and as I trust myself they are revealed to me.

#2 Find proof that you can trust yourself.

We all like a proof, especially our mind. So let’s go into the past and see if you can find a time when you felt helpless and lost. Remember how did you get out of that situation. Remember also you’ve survived and it was not the end. So this is proof that you can trust yourself whatever the situation may be. So in other words whatever adversity you are faced with currently, will not last forever and there will be an end to it.

The affirmation:

I know: Everything will pass and I can trust myself that all is well.

#3 Love yourself unconditionally.

Change your inner dialog and love yourself unconditionally. When you love yourself and also treat yourself kindly, you will find trust in yourself. We can be unforgiving for our own mistakes. It is sometimes even easier to forgive others than ourselves. We can support ourselves through our kind, loving and supportive words. Unconditional love is the answer to unconditional trust my friend.

The affirmation:

I love and trust myself unconditionally.

#4 Trust and believe that the Universe is friendly.

This is very important. When you trust and believe that the Universe is friendly, you will also trust there will be help and salvation to your problems. God is keener than you for you to succeed and fulfill your destiny. Without your self-trust it would be impossible to do it. When we trust the Universe is friendly and believe it is there for us to support us, we ultimately trust our inner self. In return this will help and guide us in the right direction.

The affirmation:

The Universe is friendly and supports me.

#5 Trust others.

Be willing to take risks and trust others. It is not easy when we get hurt in life. You may have had many painful situations with trusting. I know I have. However when we stop trusting and being open we also stop being cooperative with God, Universe or Source. If we want to get back in the flow and joy, we have to get back to trusting others and not only ourselves. Without trust there cannot be success in relationships. The ability to trust and be open puts you in a place where many opportunities will flow to you from different sources. When you have a strong connection to your higher self, you will feel what and whom to trust, as your instinct or gut feeling will be much better developed. What I want to say is, that we can learn from many experiences in our lives and so become wiser, however we cannot loose the ability to trust. The trust has healing qualities and we must do what ever it takes to trust others.

The affirmation:

When I trust others, others trust me too.

… The most successful people have learned to trust not only themselves, but also others. Without trust it is hard to achieve success, as people feel and sense it. Next week see how you can develop more trust in yourself my friend and in others.

Let’s do this together.

Now is your turn, please share your thoughts, concerns or stories in the section below. I’d love to hear from you. :)

Love, love, love this! Since relationships are a place to go to give and share, in order to be able to give trust to anyone else, we must first have trust in ourselves. You have showed wonderful ways to do so. I love the affirmations that you shared. You have such a beautiful and calming voice…so peaceful. Thank you, for sharing your brilliance and wisdom! xo

McKenna Gordon January 23, 2012

This has always been an issue for me… trusting others. And when I refuse to trust others, my ability to trust myself is slightly hampered. I don’t know that I”d FULLY trust others, but allowing some trust allows me to grow.

Reply

Solvita Bennett January 24, 2012

I can hear you McKenna, it requires a courage to be able to trust others, and as you say it allows you to grow. It is the same as when you say to the Universe I trust you, so the Universe will prove that it is worth trusting and also you will find many trustworthy people appear in your life. It is not easy, however we have to do it and as I mentioned in the article, the more you will grow spiritually, the better your intuition or gut feeling will become and you will be skilled to feel what and whom you can trust… but first start with yourself. :) Thank you!

I love #2 Find proof that you can trust yourself.
One way that I prove myself trustworthy is to write a daily success journal around the topic. For example, at night I will write down 3 ways I played in my business, 3 ways I helped others, 3 ways I kept my word, 3 ways I managed my money! Building a success journal keeps the “mind frick” at bay! :)

Sure Molly, our mind can be really unreasonable and also unforgiving. The mind loves proof and relays on proof more than anything, so this method you used is great to trick your mind! Thank you for sharing it! :)

Trust is such a key to how we move through the world and it needs a fine balance. Excellent post, Solvita…my favorite part is “Trust and believe that the Universe is friendly”.

Lauryn Doll January 26, 2012

Funny enough I’m editing a book for a client who had to realize that to trust oneself would reflect on trusting others in all of her relationships. She said mates are mirrors… and if you’re having trouble trusting others in your relationships… it’s a direct reflection of you not trusting yourself. If you can’t trust yourself, you’ll never trust anyone else… a direct reason why we have so many problems in our relationships .

It took me a long time to trust ME. With mounds of evidence saying I was untrustworthy – that my feelings were not safe with me, my dreams and my needs were suspect – I had no balanced perspective. But as I kept growing, I slowly put together the “proof” I needed that I could trust ME. Everything followed from there. Great points here, thank you!

I always possessed a decided confidence in my ability to succeed, be happy, achieve my goals. Then, about age 40, my world was shattered with one key decision in a business venture. Since then self trust/confidence has been a big issue. And so the theme recurs in this post, encouraging a new sense of self trust as I continue on in my journey of healing and restoration. Thank Solvita!

Reply

Solvita Bennett January 28, 2012

This is actually one of the reasons I did the audio and article. I times of respire, setbacks and failure we find that it is very hard to trust our ability to be OK again. Trust brings as you say healing and restoration, step by step we have to get to love ourselves unconditionally, and so also increase our self-trust. Thank you Carl for your comment ~ appreciate it!

Hello Solvita,

I’ve been following you on Twitter for some time now, but this is my first visit to your site; it won’t be my last either. I loved your content, and what you shared in this post in particular.

You’ve shared some wonderful tips here. Trust is certainly something hard for some to do, but it is definitely required in order to access that peace that abides within each of us.

I also agree with you that it’s important for us to have trust for ourselves, because when we do this, what happens then is that we become better able to trust other’s by having faith in ourselves that we are certain and secure in who we are.

I loved the beginning quote as well, “You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you do not trust enough.” That was very powerful! :)

Hi Rob, so appreciate your comment… well my aim is not to preach or teach religions :) However I loved when I studied the Bible this part in regards to what you said: “Once Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, and he answered, ‘The kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed; nor will they say, “Look, here it is!” or “There it is!” For, in fact, the kingdom of God is WITHIN you.’ also this is an amazing quote by Buddha on the same subject: “Peace comes from within. Do not seek without.” … Amazing comment Rob and very thought provoking, thank you so much for stopping by and see you soon again! :)
