Can you learn to trust yourself?
Self-Trust is fundamental to self-worth.
Do you trust yourself to do what is best for yourself?
Do you trust yourself to be compassionate towards yourself instead of beating yourself up when you make a mistake?
Do you understand yourself well enough to trust your decision-making skills?
Being able to trust yourself is a struggle for all of us. Most of the time, we are taught to do the opposite of our first reaction – waiting three extra days to text that person you actually kind of like, or second-guessing your career choice, or putting your passions away for something more practical.
But self-trust has huge benefits – when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable enough to actually trust ourselves, the more we can learn about our Higher Selves and what we truly love. It can allow us to hear our intuition, loudly and clearly. Sometimes, this can even bring us closer to fulfilling our Personal Journey (the Alchemist, anyone?).
I created six affirmations below to help you cultivate self-trust.
You can repeat these along with other affirmations, you can write them over and over in your morning pages, you can even write them on post-its and put them in your bedroom.
Generally, repeating affirmations, especially aloud, is one of the best ways to really reprogram your subconscious. Even if you need to work yourself up to it, it is the best way to really believe these messages.
- I trust the Universe and the Universe trusts me.
- I love and trust myself unconditionally.
- I can rely on myself.
- I am trustworthy.
- I deserve to be trusted.
- I am capable of making decisions that serve my Higher Self.
