Following the blog post on Trust, Faith & Surrender I thought it would be a good idea to share a few of the tools I have used throughout the years to strengthen my relationship with trust and faith. In strengthening our ability to do so can only help us to allow ourselves to go with the flow, surrender to what is unknown and uncertain. I do have to make a disclaimer that I am no expert in this area and as you know this is work in progress for me but here are some of the things that have helped me along the way …remember it always starts with us.
Take 10 minutes each day just to sit and listen to yourself, focus on your breath and listen in to how you feel, how do you feel physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually?
Do a short exercise, make a list, journal, make a mental note of your thoughts, belief, emotions and values? Are you living and breathing these on a daily basis or are you constantly swayed or over powered on them daily? Are there ways in which you can correct this?
Accept, know and love yourself for all that you are, make sure you root out any negative and unhelpful beliefs along the way.
Be honest with yourself
Get to know and understand yourself a little better, what inspires you, what makes you sad, how do difficult situations affect you and how do you react
If you know you need something or want to do something, do not deny yourself, make sure you find away of giving it to yourself. Always honour yourself.
We are complex, messy, unique and perfect individuals, it’s all part of our humanness. So forgive yourself, be compassionate with yourself and forgive others along the way
Trust your intuition.
These are the ones that resonate with me the most but I would love to hear if you have any ideas too. Let me know
All my love
