Many have a tendency to second guess themselves and to doubt themselves. When we doubt that we can succeed, our trust and faith is not in Spirit but in ourselves.
I used to doubt myself, so much. And now I know that self-doubt is insanity. It’s plain crazy! Self-doubt is when the ego mind says:
Spirit ALWAYS has what it takes to do whatever it would like to do.
When we’re aligned with ego we’ll be filled with doubt, BECAUSE the ego can only accomplish that which is not worth accomplishing. THEREFORE, it’s naturally filled with doubt.
What the ego can accomplish is only of this world and has no lasting value. What the ego can accomplish is only that which can lead to your suffering.
The value of suffering is that it PUSHES us to wake up and choose Spirit.
That’s about all the ego really has for us at this point. Motivation to stop suffering.
Where does that motivation really come from? Increased suffering!
Is that any way to live?
Unfortunately, yes, it is, and I have lived that way and it absolutely got me to the point where I said “I have had ENOUGH. I AM choosing LOVE!”
Who knew that in this world, one of the best things that could ever happen is that my suffering would become intolerable and I would totally give up and surrender my life to the Higher Holy Spirit Self and then be grateful for everything I’ve experienced? What a wild ride!
I’m so glad to learn that Spirit never fails!
I’ve learned to count on Spirit and to place my trust and faith in Spirit, and that’s the challenge. The challenge is learning to trust. Trust is a result of willingness.
I learned to focus on cultivating a TRUE and honest willingness to be loving, kind, generous and patient – as well as a willingness to take responsibility for my own feelings. In doing that, the doubt dissipated.
Professional Trainings for Teachers, Counselors & Ministers
If you think you might like to explore a spiritual career, then check out some of my programs like Finding Freedom From Fear and the trainings I offer. I am offering two trainings in October. They are each deeply healing, and they are both part of larger professional programs, but anyone can take them.
Right now there are SUPER Early Bird specials on my How to Lead & Create A Workshop training which includes certification to lead my Forgive & Be Free workshop, and then there’s my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive which is a great program for anyone interested in becoming a better listener, cultivating compassion or intuition.
