We all have had less than positive things happen to us and it can fuel worrying even further. How do we release worry and fear in our day to day to life so that we can enjoy more moments?
I can sure get myself worked up over nothing. What if he gets in a car accident on the way to work? What if she died? What if… I have to stop myself pretty quickly before a full blown, out of proportion, fearful scenario transpires in my mind. I simply whisper, “I trust you,” and oddly, I am calmed.
We were never meant to know the news of the world. Our minds and hearts are not prepared to handle so many things that we cannot control. We have nearly zero control over anything, if we must be honest. I have to believe that when we were placed on this earth we were not left alone to our own devices. Just looking at the millions of medicinal and food plants made synergistically to us. Miracles upon miracles (coincidences? I have had too many crazy things happen, several healings, unexplainable escapes from certain death…) and people showing up in our lives at the right time and for the right season with the right lessons and the doors opening for us at each turn. And sometimes the doors closing. Which we can only understand in hind sight. Because we have no power over much, I believe that is why we feel so much worry.
I look up and whisper, “I trust you.” Maybe that is to ancestors, friends that passed, my Creator, Mother Earth… I blend together plant extracts for ailments I have no power to heal myself and just whisper, “I trust you,” to the plants. The medicines always work to my great relief and joy. Things really do work out. We are given fight or flight to deal with stress and worry at that very moment, not light years before anything happens, if it ever even does.
We must learn to live happily, peacefully, and fully on our journey here, knowing there are plant and animals spirits, ancestors, loved ones here and passed, and of course, our Source looking out for us. Just relax and whisper, “I trust you.”
