challenges as teachers

Are you trusting yourself? Radical Self-Trust Part 2

“This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meaness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain all!  Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.  Be grateful for whomever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.” ~Rumi

Last week I wrote about radical self-trust in terms of learning to trust the voice and the guidance within. Trusting yourself really is an essential part of radical responsibility.  

The other important aspect of radical self-trust is trusting that everything that shows up in our lives is there to inform us, to teach us, and to help move us toward more of who we really are. 

How different would our lives be if we would just embrace our worries, doubts, fears and frustrations as teachers there to inform us of what our next step is?  If we listen to what they are saying to us rather than trying to banish them, we can then learn from them, thank them and release them, and move into the next best version of ourselves.  This is so much easier than fighting with them and trying to exile them.  

When we radically trust ourselves, we see every experience in our lives an important part of the natural unfolding of ourselves toward our highest good.  The truth is that our most painful experiences are often the most necessary in terms of our learning and growing toward the ultimate fulfillment of who we really are.

Take the time to look to any worries, fears, or doubts and any painful experience as messengers with important information.   Sit with them in meditation, ask your higher self for guidance and allow yourself to receive what you need from whatever you’re going through.  Any psychological state that we don’t want to be in has its gift if we simply befriend it rather than pushing it away.  Staying receptive and befriending whatever we’re feeling, will allow us to hear what it has to say.  Only then can we release it and move forward with the insight we have gained.

Why not take a vow of radical self-trust right now?  Decide to have faith in all of your experiences and trust even the painful states of mind you may find yourself in.  Befriend all that comes your way as a beloved teacher.  From this place of radical self-trust, you will find that you can move through anything more quickly, easily and gracefully.  And we gain so much more from accepting rather than fighting whatever it is that shows up in our lives.
