Whatever type of self-healing practice you choose, there is one essential ingredient that it must contain:
You need to trust yourself. I know it sounds scary but it’s crucial to healing. If you don’t trust yourself, you will get in the way of healing by undermining your own decisions or even self-sabotaging your healing efforts.
You need to trust in your body and its miraculous ability to self-heal. Whatever you are experiencing, trust that your body is doing its best and give it the support it needs to self-heal.
For example: If you are craving certain foods or don’t feel drawn to a situation or activity, listen to those messages and trust your body’s wisdom. It is working with you.
Trusting your intuition will be key to your healing journey. Your intuition is continuously working alongside you, serving you by providing clues and messages to guide your healing. Trust that you are correctly receiving and interpreting this intuitive information, and let go of the belief that your intuition can’t be trusted.
This takes practice and may not happen overnight. Many of us feel we are not trustworthy and it will take time to earn our own trust. Have patience with yourself and take it one day at a time.
In addition to trusting yourself, it’s absolutely essential that you trust in the universe/spirit/creator/god to provide for and support you on your healing journey.
If you trust that the universe is conspiring in your favour – if you trust in spirit to guide you each step of the way – all you have to do is show up. You don’t have to figure anything out. Just trust and you will be guided.
By learning to trust ourselves we acknowledge our true power and deep healing occurs. We no longer seek as much from others because we trust in what we have within ourselves. We begin to live from the heart because we trust what we feel. We show up bigger and brighter because we trust that we can.
By learning to trust spirit to always guide and provide for us, we invite Divine intervention and miracles unfold before us. Our entire lives change because we trust in the process (even when we don’t understand) and we trust in the bigger picture (that we can’t always see).
That is the key element to all successful healing practices:
It might feel scary, you may not know how to do it, and maybe you want to trust everyone but yourself. This is your chance to change your life by committing to trusting yourself and spirit. It is as it needs to be and you will be guided every step of the way.
Trust. You’ve got this.
