A very healing video. So many suffer from this for no good reason. Feeling this way most of my life. I know it stemmed from childhood. Over the last few years I've began my journey of changing this emotional state. I have found that "energy flows where attention goes." I've tried this visualization exercise & the results are amazing. If we can do this by focusing on something, then we can create our lives for the better by focusing on that. Altho' you may still struggle with feelings of disappointment learning that our thoughts create our lives is key to getting past disappointment. Don't allow your thoughts or fears of disappointment to direct how you should feel. Practice the art of non-attachment. While we still desire things, whilst not becoming attached to the outcome. Change your thoughts... change your life. While its always a work in progress, its all about how we perceive things & letting go of things that no longer serve us. Enjoy the day.
Iyanla VanSant defines this perfectly when she wrote the following in her book: Until Today! She states: "Trust is based on your ability to stand your ground and rely on your own abilities, knowing that no matter what happens, you will be better off than you were at the beginning. Anything less than this is not trust." Just think about that for a moment. That is a perfect definition of trust. So what about that saying; "trust is not a given, trust is earned." Some would declare that statement as the holy grail saying for trust. It is very accurate, no doubt. When we meet a person we tend not to trust them for fear of being lied to, let down or hurt by them. We automatically grab hold of that holy grail saying in order to shield ourselves. Our apprehension to trust is rooted on feelings of insecurity and ego. While our ability to trust is founded in feelings of safety and acceptance. So when those lines are crossed we are left with emotional wounds that scar over to create a tuff emotional shield which we rely on to protect us over and over again. What happens when we rely on this shield is it tends to also create a distrust within ourselves. The soul essence that we call trust resides within us. We decide to trust and what we have decided to believe is reflected.
