I have been teaching about self trust for over seven years now and for this episode, the self trust teaching wanted to come through a bit differently. No doubt, the reason is that trust is harder when tragedy and trauma are rampant because we get pulled into the WHY question? It doesn’t make sense. And it’s not supposed to.
And during these current times we’re living through there’s a lot of that.
So we question a lot of valid things but can get overly distracted by them. This is why we need to ‘”insource” more than we “outsource” and strengthen our direct connection to the Divine (God, Source, Universe, etc) –and that is the part of the teaching I had to integrate more deeply into today’s exploration of self trust
The only intermediary we need is our soul.
In today’s episode I cover:
- How we build trust within ourselves similarly to how we build trust with others.
- Why we need self trust if we hope to have self love
- The difference between judgment and discernment
- How to know which part of yourself to trust, and how to practice self trust when you feel conflicted
- Big questions people face around self trust like – how to know the difference between fear and intuition, how to know when it’s our ego talking, or our trauma or wounds
- Some universal truths you can choose to place faith in if you want that will help cultivate trust more easily
I get much deeper into the nuance of these things in the EMBODIED Self Love Mini Course – so if you are working on self trust and want the extra support – check it out here.

“We can’t control other people. We can’t change other people. We can’t grow on behalf of other people but we can absolutely resolve our own stuff.”
“Trust is harder when tragedy and trauma are rampant.”
“Where we get tripped up is when we get overly distracted by questions we don’t have answers to. This is why we need to insource and source from within rather than outsource.”
“Discernment is just your body saying ‘this is a yes for me, this is a no for me.’”
“Trust becomes deeper when assisted by trust in the divine.”
“Any given moment, can and will serve us eventually.”
“Everything is a growth opportunity, everything is a chance to open more into love and go deeper into the mystery.”
“My conditioning believes that I can weather things. Even the things that feel impossible, even the things that feel like they might break me.”
“If you can trust yourself, you know when to trust others.”

Since 2013 I’ve been developing a body of work that helps women embody self love, healing and wholeness. We do this by focusing on the four levels of consciousness – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
In practical terms this looks like exploring tools and practices to help you tune into the deep wisdom of the body and the knowing of the heart, which I believe are gateways to our souls. Then we cultivate a new relationship with our minds that allows the mind to serve this wisdom and knowing and soul connection, rather than override it, which is what many of us were taught.
The show runs in seasons now and this season we’re focusing on my EMBODIED Self Love Framework.
We’ll be looking at Self Awareness, Self Knowledge, Self Acceptance, Self Trust and Self Respect – with a bonus episode on Boundaries as well.
If you’ve been doing self help or spiritual development work for a while, these are the types of foundational things that often people overlook in pursuit of fancier concepts that often aren’t practical or sustainable. Here, we will focus on building these strong foundations so you can honestly and thoroughly embody self love.
