I know a lot of people who worry. When I was a little girl, my kindergarten teacher used to call me the “Worry Wart.” I don’t know what I could have possibly been worried about at 5 years old, but apparently, I thought life was a little stressful.
Over the past two decades, as i have studied metaphysics, learned to meditate and the power of Spiritual Mind Treatment (affirmative prayer), I have, for the most part, given up worrying.
I say “for the most part,” because once in a while I forget. It’s easier now to get myself back on track. I do it by remembering and telling myself that the Universe can be trusted. There is a Power that works behind the scenes 24/7 that is guiding and guarding my life. It has brought that little 5-year-old girl to the here and now and It continues to keep her safe, prosperous and living a life of Love. It is Infinite Intelligence and It is right where I am always.
Why do we worry? I believe it is because we feel separate from Life. We feel that something outside of ourselves has taken things over and we do not trust it. We place our faith in other people. When events show up that are threatening, we continue to lose faith in Good and, instead, feel that the world is unstable and unpredictable. Our worry feeds up worry, creating more worry and more experiences to worry about.
The Spiritual Truth is that everything is always unfolding perfectly. These are not just words. If the Universe wasn’t perfect, how would we survive for even a moment? We trust the sun to rise in the morning? We trust our breathing process? We trust the things we consider automatic.
Ernest Holmes once wrote, “When we learn to trust the Universe, we shall be happy, prosperous and well.” Why is this? It is because our trust in the Universe is an affirmative prayer. It is telling the Law of our Being that we know we are always cared for, guarded and led by Infinite Intelligence. When things come up, and they do, we always know there is an answer, a solution. Life is unfolding for our highest good at all time.
For me, at times like these in the world, trust is of the utmost importance. If we take action with trust as our backing, we can work miracles. The Truth always rises and Love eventually wins out. If we believe that Good is all there is, we will continue to live and see that Good in all things. We will be guided to do what is ours to do. We will still have compassion, but we will have a strength and knowing behind that compassion that lifts those we assist.
I have come a long way since I was that little worry wart of the 1950’s. I know that trust has carried me through many storms in my life. All has always been well. It just needed me to let go and get in the flow of life. There are things that are the Universe’s to do. The Universe lives in me. It lives in you.
I invite us, in this moment, no matter what is occurring in our lives and in the world, to just take the opportunity to trust that the Universe has our back and that everything is unfolding as it should. I invite us all to keep affirming this and see the highest good unfolding. I invite us to be vigilant and unceasing in this knowing. I promise to do so.
