“Listen to your gut. The pull. Don’t be afraid. If you can’t stop thinking about it then you want it, have wanted it, and will continue to want it. Dive straight in and ride it out. The wave will carry you. Simply trust the water.” —Victoria Erickson
We begin life having to trust others. If all goes well they take care of our primal needs, and we learn, unconsciously, that there are other humans to help us, that someday we will learn to help ourselves, and that we are deserving. That’s a lot of powerful messaging that gets absorbed by our little, sponge-like minds.
Then, along the way, we take our knocks. And trust wavers. A return to trusting ourselves means that possibilities are experienced as boundless, fear takes a holiday, and we are part of the big, supportive, loving picture of good things coming our way. Just listen to yourself.
