Ascent 119 – Trusting the Process

I was reminded tonight of how important it is to trust what is going on and what is in motion. I inherently know this yet it’s powerful to be reminded of it.

I’m passionate about empowering others to own their journey and chart a course to that sublime, fulfilling life they desire. As soon as you make that decision and step out, you’re in uncharted territory, opening up to a new you, a new world and a future where the only certain thing is that it will be perfect.

It takes courage to take this step. To be willing to let go of everything that defined who you were and be open to replace it with that which is truly you. Some shifts are rapid and others take some time. Life may seem to get a little rockier initially, causing you to have some doubts about your path. This is where trust comes into play.

Trusting the process is the ability to be content with where you’re at, in this moment, regardless of where you’re at and whether you have clarity of your direction. It is a confidence in the choices you are making and that the right things will come in perfect timing. And, if something doesn’t come, or doesn’t turned out as you anticipated, that there is a reason for that too.

It’s not a form of procrastination. When you have the urge to act – act. If your guidance is leading you to be still – heed it. Any feelings of counter-intuitiveness are simply the gravitational pull of your old being, your prior knowing, striving to keep you rooted in that familiar old reality.

Like most activities in life, this gets better with practice. The more you do it, the more natural it feels, the better choices you make, the brighter life gets and the easier it is for you to trust the process.

You know that you are trusting when you feel peace. If you feel anything else, that is a sign that you’re not truly trusting the process, your journey, etc. And, that is okay. This is uncharted territory – a foreign land that you’re traversing to get to some other space that you’ve never experienced. It’s perfectly natural for some trepidation to pop up. Just don’t let it persist and know that you’re on the right path, you’ll know when to change course and when to rest, when to speed up and when to slow down. You’ll just know. And when you’re comfortable in that space and the overall not-knowing then you’re trusting the process and you’re free to enjoy the best part – now.
