Learning To Trust Yourself (Part 2 of 3)
When you don’t trust yourself, you will seek guidance from everyone else
Your life will be outer-focused, and people will make decisions about your life for you. Make your personal decisions based on what’s most important to you and what works best for you.
You can ask other people’s opinions as long as you are willing to pay most attention to your feelings. If you are unsure of yourself, take the time to really listen to your gut. If you have a relationship with a Higher Power, spend time in prayer and ask that the truth be revealed to you.
During my coaching training, we were taught to listen to our intuition
A lot of us questioned how we know if we’re right? In other words, how can we know for sure if we can trust ourselves? You don’t know for sure unless you test it out.
We were instructed as coaches to blurt out what our intuition was telling us, and then wait to see how the client responds. The more we test our intuition and discover that it’s telling the truth, the more we begin to trust ourselves.
Try some experiments
The next time you feel confused about a decision, pay attention to your gut-level reaction. Don’t rationalize or talk yourself out of your feelings. Go with it and see how it turns out.
You can even make a list of times you trust your intuition and things go well. The more you practice trusting yourself, the easier it will become.
If you trust yourself and find out later it was a mistake, learn from it and move on. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s better to trust yourself and be wrong than to not trust yourself at all.

A tough, rough road
Do you know the way that leads you to the road to genius? If you have interest in the theories of quantum physics you will know that the very observation of certain experiments has effects to their outcome.
Without going too deep, the implication is that the experimenters are somehow connects to the experiment itself and no matter what they do, they are unable to prevent their influence over it.
On the level of meta-physics this is evidence of our oneness with everything. Somehow we connect to everything outside of us and have access to all knowledge.
But at the same time are separates by the illusion of our apparent individuality. But what is it that makes us all appear to be different.
What makes a genius?
Have you ever wondered why certain people exhibit genius qualities? What is that makes a child a chess grand-master, a great mathematician or a virtuoso musician well before their time?
Is it in the power of their mind or is the secret in how they are wired?
For a moment imagine we are all connected to pure consciousness through a series of channels. These channels exist because of our idea of separation and where we feel our place is in the world.
Our minds have flourished on this idea of separation. All the ideas we hold about ourselves including our status, our background, our race etc have allowed the mind to take control of our lives.
This control has a direct bearing on the number and strength of channels open to us. They are what makes us different and why some people are excellent in given fields whilst other people struggle.
It seems that the mind is preventing the access to pure consciousness. The mind’s activity is blocking and forging the channels through its idea of separation.
