The Power of Radical Trust

When we place our trust in the universe, we are letting go, releasing the doubts and stressors that we once claimed ownership of.

When we believe that things will work out in our favor, then they do, and so be it.

we can live in fear, or we can live in love, which one will we choose?

A Dance of “Give and Receive”

When we place our trust in the universe, this does not mean that we are relinquishing all of our free will. This life is a dance of give and receive, of putting out and letting in. This is not about giving all of our responsibility to the universe, and waiting for all of the answers to drop on our head as we wait in limbo. This is about setting clear and solid intentions, sending them out into the universe, and trusting that the universe is always conspiring in our favor, and will bring us exactly what we need at exactly the right time, based on the energy that we send out.

Now, whether we send this energy out unconsciously or with conscious awareness and intention is up to us…

Releasing the Outcome

If we trace whatever it is that we are working towards back to the original source, to the original intention, we will begin to realize that it is not the actual outcome of the thing, person, circumstance, or whatever it may be that is hard to “let go” of; It is the thought of it.

There is always something that triggers us to think about the outcome of what we are working towards. Whether it be checking our bank account, seeing something that reminds us of what we desire, contemplating how little time we have, whatever it may be.

When we keep our focus on the outcomes that are outside of our control, we are then transferring the “I want” energy to an “I lack” energy, pushing our goals further and further away from where we actually are, which is all there ever is.

When we place and maintain our attention on our present situation, shifting our perspective to see that where we actually are is completely fine, we can then set conscious intentions and take grounded actions that matter towards our goals, leaving the rest in the hands of the Universe, with radical and unwavering trust, whom will always work with us to achieve our goals in the most unique and mysterious of ways.

For some, there is a reactive and defensive belief that follows this approach, which consists of, “But if I stop thinking about it, even for a second, then I will lose sight of it, and it will never come.” This notion is false though, and it is once again the work of our little trickster friend, the EGO.

“No ego, once again, that is a fearful reaction…”

If the ego happens to have convinced us that the constant thinking and attachment is required in order for us to achieve our goals, this is a belief that is rooted in fear, a seed that was planted from thoughts about the future and the past, which do not exist in the present.

The ego does not do this to attack us, it is doing it because it believes that it will protect us, not realizing that it is the very thing that is doing us harm. The mere awareness of this, and of the fearful state in and of itself, will dissolve the illusion that the present is something that we must run from in order to survive. That is what the ego does, it’s main goal is to survive, regardless of whether it limits us or not, because it is running off of its own programming, not common sense.

Living in the Middle

The middle is a pretty comfortable place to be. What is it to live a balanced life, a life of “in between”?

The Importance of Being Balanced

To be in balance is to be at ease. There is no “other“, there is no opposition. When we are in balance there is no chasing one side, nor running from the other. There is no push, there is no pull. There is simply peace with all that is, with all that is not, and with everything in between.

3 Tips for “Middle Living”

Here are some reminders that help myself to be centered and balanced in life, with the aims that it may help you as well.

1. BE WARY OF “EXTREMES”

Perceiving the world through a filter of extremes is a major limitation. The truth is that this reality is a spectrum. Our minds often like to fit things into categories. We tend to label things as “this” or “thatfrom a dichotomous point of view.

(It also helps to avoid talking in extremes, with the two main words to avoid being “always” and “never“.)

Overall, a mindset of extremes is detrimental. Life is so complicated and that’s honestly the beauty of it. There is no concrete “thing” and there is no concrete “other”.

Balance is embracing fluidity. To realize that there never was one or the other, but both. One and the other. Which encompasses it all. One, which is also both simultaneously.

Therefore, by being in the “middle“, you encompass both things, one thing, and neither thing, all at the same time. What a concept, right?

2. use YOUR BODY as YOUR COMPASS

There are many metaphors that can be used with the physical body. One that I like to use in this case is thinking of the body as a compass, and a controller for our energy.

The body, mind, and spirit are all intertwined and interconnected. Therefore, they all influence each other. Thinking of it in this way, we can literally use our physical bodies to adjust our balance on an energetic level.

I will now share how I do this. I use these techniques on my own to calibrate my energy on a daily basis:

  1. First, it always helps me to do a quick energy cleanse. What this mainly does is clear any limiting energies that I may be holding onto unconsciously. I do this by:
  • Closing my eyes.
  • Visualizing a clear field encasing my body.
  • (In mind.) Focusing on the intention to cleanse my entire energetic field within that moment.
  • After that point, so be it, and it is done.

2. The next step I take to balance my energy is to close my eyes, and bring all of my attention on my spine. For me, my spine basically represents my body’s antenna, and it’s a great tool for balancing. To do this:

  • I set the intention to accumulate and gather all of my energy into my spine, visualizing it as a magnetic force.
  • I imagine each inhale guiding my energy down my spine to the bottom, and each exhale guiding my energy up my spine to the top.
  • I visualize this energetic breathing pattern as a continuous and cyclical motion.
  • When all of my energy is rooted in my spine, I then move on to the next step.

3. Lastly, I move into my heart center by:

  • Closing my eyes.
  • Bringing all of my awareness to my heart.
  • Visualizing a green field of energy surrounding it, feeling both the front of my body and the back of my body.
  • (In mind.) Setting the intention to be centered in this space, opening myself up to giving and receiving love. So be it. ❤

Once I conclude rooting myself in my heart and along my spine, I like to finish off by visualizing energy flowing out of my heart center and into both of my palms, down my spine all the way to the bottoms of my feet, and up my spine meeting the crown of my head.

This process leaves my physical and energetic bodies balanced, aligned, and rejuvenated.

3. notice where your boundaries lie

On a closing note, I will finish on the subject of boundaries. The importance of boundaries can often be overlooked. I know it seems contrary to what I touched upon earlier on the topic of reality being a spectrum, although I did also included that there was no “one” and no “other“, having it therefore be “both“.

Using discernment can help us to determine whether boundaries serve us or limit us by being there. Boundaries can change, and sometimes they’re nonexistent when they should be present. We all create our own boundaries, and we all have them.

Sometimes we’re confused about where they lie because they were never fully established, and sometimes we let them rule our lives by seeing them as a barrier that will always be there. By having boundaries that are well-maintained and in between both of these, we find balance in setting clear boundaries of our own and respecting the boundaries of others.

A life in the middle is a never-ending dance. One of a constant flow and motion, twists and turns, rights and wrongs, and everything in between. So have fun, release rigidity, embrace your play, and be free in this wild complexity of what we call the universe. ❤
