Trust in Self

“Trust in yourself. Your perceptions are often far more accurate than you are willing to believe.”
—Claudia Black

Most of us could not count on our fingers the number of times our instincts told us that something was one way, yet we tried to believe and twist it otherwise. We knew that a particular person was not right for us in friendship or romance. We perceived that our next action in some life changing event was wrong, but we did it anyway. We quit something before we were finished.  Basically we knew something but doubted our self.

It’s important to find that place within us that we can trust. When we really know something and we try to shift reality it will not work. It’s important to stay positive in life, but to claim that we can do something impossible does not make it so. To pretend that someone who has always been unloving to us and others is suddenly going to change is not reality.

We know ourselves better than anyone else can know us, but so often we look outside of us to find our answers and make decisions. We can trust our gut instincts; that’s our wisdom. It may have failed us in the past, but we have grown to a new level and we can trust our perceptions to be just and true.
Once we determine to trust our instincts we begin to see that we really can believe in our own knowledge and wisdom. Our lives are made easier when we don’t try to force something to work which is not meant to work.

Our instincts are there for a reason.

    It’s knowing what is not meant to work – and what is – that would be nice to have an instinct for, so loudly than any questions or doubts about the first maybe being the direction to go in would be droned out. Hindsight helps.
