So many people are living in fear currently.
FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real.
It is time we refocus ourselves, paying attention to trust. I have created an acronym for trust that I think will help.
TRUST = Totally Releasing Unnecessary Scary Thoughts.
In this moment, are you safe? If so, then that is where you focus, because all any of us have is this moment. Recall or imagine a safe place. Notice the colors, the textures, the designs of this place. Notice the temperature, the aromas and the sweet sounds of serenity and calm. Allow this place to become real. Notice how in this place, in this moment, you are safe and secure and serene.
Notice how the body feels when this is your truth. Allow your mind to wander to a concern and wonder how it might be if that concern were behind you. How would you feel if you were free of that worry, if you had a solution to that puzzle?
I wonder if the waiting for the other shoe to drop is more what creates discomfort within you than the reality of the situation. All too often, after a "crisis" is over we realize that fear was in our heads, not our circumstances.
Allow your mind to drift past the event you have been concerned about and notice the outcome. What steps might you have taken to get to the desired outcome? What are the keys to your success?
Perhaps it starts with T.R.U.S.T.
