Are you floating in trust, or drowning in angst?

Trust

How easy (or not!) do you find it to drop into trust? 

Recently I said to a client who is going through an incredibly difficult time, and sitting with a lot of angst, ⠀

‘If you don’t want to sit in angst, you’ve got to learn to trust’. ⠀

Because, this is what I deeply believe:

When we are sitting in angst about whatever is going on for us (as opposed to trust), we block all of the good stuff.

We literally BLOCK solutions. Grace. Better outcomes. ⠀

Angst is a yucky feeling.

It feels like hopelessness. And despair.

It keeps us completely stuck in our head.
Worrying. Stressing. Fretting.
Projecting our emotional state onto others and the world at large.
Feeling like a victim. ⠀

It’s hard to attract better outcomes from that place, really.


If you are having trouble sitting with what’s going on for you right now … see how often you can shift yourself out of angst … and into trust. 

I know, it’s not easy.

When all evidence on the PHYSICAL plane appears to the contrary, it’s hard to believe that everything ‘is unfolding as it should’.

Really, it can be so infuriating whenever we read or hear those words (even though, I personally believe them).

BUT, you don’t know what is happening on a NON-physical plane.
You don’t know what might be manifesting for you – in your favour – right now.

You don’t know why this had to happen … yet.
You might never know.
But it is usually only with the blessing of hindsight, that things make ‘sense’. That we can realise, it wasn’t as bad as we thought it was.

In my experience, it is often when it seems like EVRYTHING is falling apart, that the biggest breakthroughs truly happen. ⠀

Can you relate?


At the very least, choosing to TRUST, will clear your mind space. ⠀

It will get you out of your reptilian brain (the part of your brain that is literally wired for survival – your hindbrain). And back into your forebrain – the place of logic and reasoning.

It will provide mental energy for focussing on divine guidance and solutions instead.

When I’m needing to switch back into trust, I find the following really work for me:

A walk in nature
A yin yoga class
A float tank session
A guided meditation (I love the Insight Timer app)
A hilarious romantic comedy

All of these things get me out of my head, and back into my heart. 


Amazing Woman, I know life is not easy.

Really, I know. Every week in my work I hear women’s stories. I have my own stories. The women of my friend and family circles have their own stories.

I deeply empathise with whatever is happening for you – even if I don’t know you or your story. 

We all have our fair share of struggle and hardship, and we can honour this.

But, I also know with certainty that dwelling in angst for too long, wears down a spirit very, very, quickly.

And that it is a choice to think and believe differently about a situation.
To believe in HOPE.

So, if sitting in angst about whatever is going on for you is REALLY exhausting you right now?

I invite you to choose trust.

Do it for your own energy, your own well-being, your own sanity.

Life is too precious to sit in constant angst!


This topic – the idea of choosing trust, faith and surrender as guiding qualities in the way you live your life, is something I cover in great detail in the final module of my upcoming 8-week eCourse, 

Reset, Restore, Rebalance: Recovery For People Pleasing Women

It is a topic that is so very, very close to my heart, because I know with utmost certainty, that I would not have created this life that I love so much, if I hadn’t constantly chosen to have trust, to have faith, and to surrender to the higher plan of my life.

Human beings find it so very hard to surrender. We love to be in control. We think that we can force and manipulate life (and often, other people). But, we can’t.

The very best that we can do is to learn to connect back into our SOUL – and live from there.

Allowing our heart and our intuition to guide our choices.
Trusting that the inner guidance we receive is right for us.
Having faith that even when we cannot see it yet, things are working out for our highest good.
Surrendering to the divine plan.

If you know these qualities are ones that you would like to strengthen and cultivate within yourself, considering joining me for my eCourse – beginning on the 17th October.
