When you want to manifest something using the Law of Attraction, it is important that you trust the universe to partner with you to make your dreams come true.
This morning I was watching a video that is talking about how a lack of trust can be holding your manifestations back. Saying affirmations and visualizing isn't enough. You have to trust in the universe to supply what you need when you need it.
Sometimes, if we have trauma in the past, or if we have trouble trusting in others or ourselves, then we have trouble aligning ourselves with the energy that we want to have in our lives.
We all want to have control over our lives, but control is really an illusion. No matter what kind of plans we make or what steps we take to achieve them, there are always situations that come along in life that can be challenging.
Here are some tips from Chopra to help you to learn to trust the universe:
1. Embrace Helplessness
2. Tune Into Love
3. Release What You Cannot Hold
4. Observe Nature
5. Show Gratitude
6. Increase Self-Awareness
7. Listen to Your Intuition
8. Acknowledge Life’s Grace
9. Seek Oneness
The more you can be aligned to the flow of the universe, the easier it becomes to trust that good things are going to happen to you. Changing your mindset allows you to focus on all the good that is already in your life using gratitude. When we show gratitude for the blessings already in our lives, it helps to create an abundance mindset instead of a lack mindset.
When you seek love and oneness daily in your life using practices like mindfulness, meditation and yoga, it allows you to be more calm and centered within yourself. The healing power of these practices allows you to find more love, peace and oneness in your life. This helps us to remember the true nature of yourself as a soul.
Remember, you are a beautiful and bright part of the universe, and the universe wants you to succeed. Your true nature is boundless love. Aligning yourself with the flow of that love helps you to trust in something bigger than yourself.
Trust is difficult, because in many cases we are quite fearful in our lives. Sometimes we have experiences that cause us to doubt the goodness of people and the world. Beginning to trust means we have to let go of past hurts, and to realize that not everyone is going to hurt us. There are plenty of good people in the world.
The more we believe in the goodness of others, the more we will start to notice small acts of kindness all around us. Shifting our focus from the negative to the positive allows us to trust that there is so much goodness in the world, despite all of the suffering that exists.
We need to open our minds and our hearts and see past the suffering to the things that are going right. It's not possible that everything is going wrong all the time. Something has to be going right. As we focus on what is going right, it allows us to further shift into a more positive mindset.
Remember, when you ask for something in a manifestation, trust that what you are asking for is for your highest good. Your highest good is in alignment with the highest good of the universe, and the highest good of everyone else. Focusing more and more on your highest good aligns you more with the flow of the universe where blessings are bound to come from.
According to MBG Mindfulness,
To sum it all up: The best way to trust the universe is to learn to trust yourself. Rather than just indiscriminately repeating the mantra "let go," get curious about what specifically is preventing you from stepping up. And then let go of that specific thought, belief, assumption or whatever it is. Know that the universe is loving you by serving you, even if that doesn’t please you. Sometimes, not getting what we want is even better.
The more you step into a loving mindset, the more love will overflow into your life. Love always expands itself exponentially. The more we love, the more we give. Love makes us more kind, more helpful, happier and more grateful. As we learn to tap into the universal flow of boundless love, we love ourselves and others more. This love, in turn, strengthens us spiritually.
As we become spiritually strong people, it becomes easier to trust that things will work out for the best. We start to see the glass half full instead of half empty. Then, all of a sudden when we aren't looking, the glass isn't just half full, it is overflowing. Good has a way of multiplying within our lives.
It all starts with your heart and your intentions. If it is your intention to be in tune with the universe, to love, and to live towards your highest good, then that is the highest possible intention that you can have. Aiming to be your best and to be of service to others puts you into a space where you are creating goodness all around you.
