Do you really trust the universe?

 

I like to think that I do.

 
But I don’t 100% of the time. When something doesn’t go the way I want it to, when I am disappointed or frustrated – I can stop trusting.
 
I know that things always work out for the better. I completely believe that and I have countless examples of that in my own life. So why I still feel frustrated when things aren’t going as planned?  

First of all, it’s natural to experience feelings of disappointment and frustration.
 
It’s also completely natural to not trust 100% of the time, or to not be happy 100% of the time – being human means experiencing a whole range of emotions. It’s perfectly normal to feel sad, angry, down, to lose our “faith”, at any given moment.
 
It’s not the feelings themselves (we need to feel them and then move on so they don’t get stuck in our body), it’s how long we hang out in those feelings that affects our energy, health, thoughts and results.
 

So how do you move from frustration back into trust?

 
For me, one of the best way is to have a running list every week of “Good Things That Happened” (one of my friends calls it her “Magical Things That Happened”). I do this in the evening – similar to a gratitude practice.

When I do this consistently, I can more quickly pop back into trust – b/c I’ve been writing down at least 1 thing every* day that has worked out beautifully – either right away, or over time.
 

I’m focused on seeing the good, the magical, the synchronistic.

 
 

Whatever we focus on, expands – so when we train ourselves to remember the good in the past, we’re more likely to trust that it will also work out in the present.
 
Just like exercise, eating healthily, having honest conversations** are lifetime practices, trusting the universe is the same – it requires engagement and action.
 
*I’m a 5 Days a week girl. Anything I say I do “every day”, I do 5 times a week. Sundays off and one other free day in the week to allow for when I’m busier than normal. Balance, not Perfection.
 

**Moving your body, eating well and having honest conversations all contribute to having a stronger faith in the universe b/c you’ve minimized emotional and physical blocks to feeling good, clear and trusting.
 
It’s okay to feel frustrated when things aren’t going as planned. Feel…and then remember the magical. Remind yourself of synchronicities.
 
Then you can return to trust – that all is working out And almost always, in a way that is even better than you could have planned.
 

Over to you:

 

  • Do you believe the universe has your back?
  •  

  • Do you have examples in your life and business to support that?
  •  

  • Do you have a “Good Things That Happened” type of list and/or does it resonate with you?
  •  

  • What else helps you trust in life?
