Affirmations – Trust

On Fridays, I always post Affirmations. I like to reflect on the week I’ve had, and set my intentions for the week to come.

Lately, I’ve been experiencing a high rate of coincidence, double meaning, and unexpected connections. It’s hard to explain but I feel like this is related to my opening myself up to trusting the Universe and noticing what has been there all along.

I know. It sounds all airy-fairy and kumbaya. I get it.

But, the truth is that I had allowed my intuition to become dormant for quite a while. I’d always prided myself on being an intuitive person. And then, for a variety of reasons that can best be described as “giving up and letting others run my show,” I set it aside. I rarely saw things for anything other than what they appeared to be. I accepted whatever was presented. I failed to question or look beyond the proverbial surface.

Lately, however, that hasn’t been the case. I keep seeing the same images, hearing the same sounds, reading the same words, encountering the same people, all in different settings. Surely, it’s not just coincidence. As a writer, I might be cynical, but I’m not dumb.

The Universe is sending me a message. And I’ll be honest: I’m not completely certain as to what it is. But I’m listening and paying attention.

So, for this week, my affirmation is:

I trust the Universe to put me where I need to be. I trust that everything happening in my life is happening for a reason. I trust that good things are coming my way. I trust that I will succeed.

And now, back to paying attention to what life is giving me these days. Here’s to a good weekend and the upcoming week.

Do you use affirmations?
