Trust and Faith

Faith & Trust–Two Energies To Carry You Through

Trust and FaithPerhaps you’ve been reading or hearing about some intense events that people are saying are going to take place this month….  Perhaps you’re feeling apprehensive about the shifting energies…  What do do?

Make a daily practice of focusing your intention on strengthening your intuitive powers + taking action based on inner guidance.  Our inner wisdom guides us and protects us in every way–but we must be ready to perceive it.  When our connection to our inner wisdom is strong, we’re also in an advantageous position to help others.

This is the month to step it up.  Whether you use the audio programs I sell or not, be disciplined about your spiritual practices.  Reap the benefits of Lena’s commentary below.   ****

The themes this month are FAITH and TRUST —they may be the only thing that keeps you sane this month.

We are truly expanding the boundaries of our creativity, perception, and understanding, and moving ourselves into the unknown. The container of our lives needs to be bigger to accommodate this evolution and we cannot hold ourselves back with our fears, limited thinking and need for control.

This month may at times feel out of control and you may witness others losing control of their rational thoughts and actions. The world may not make sense and chaos may set in. You may feel at a loss as to what to do and where to put your energy. The best-laid plans may go haywire as spirit shows you in no uncertain terms that there is another agenda for you to follow. The rational controlling mind will have trouble with this, but the higher mind of intuition and inspiration will be delighted by the opportunity to take charge.

At the end of the day, all you will have to really rely on is FAITH and TRUST.

This is the time where you take your skills at organizing your physical life and turn them towards organizing your spiritual life. This is a different type and level of organization and highly important this month. We are learning that the external physical structures of security and support we have been relying on are perhaps not really a reliable source of true support.

As we witness them dissolving and crumbling before our very eyes, we need to turn our focus towards structuring our inner spiritual life in a way that can support us no matter what happens. The stronger and more organized our inner container is, the better it can feed our outer container with the FAITH and TRUST we need to move into the future. This may be the only thing that keeps you sane this month.

Remember that this is an Artisan year and artisans are masters of chaos, destruction and high levels of creativity. It is useful to tap into the artisan within and to trust that you have what it takes to navigate chaos and destruction, and to turn your life into one beautiful outrageous and highly creative work of art. Just as any creative project begins with a blank, your life as a creative project will unfold in its right timing with power and purpose as long as you can practice Faith and Trust every step of the way.

Faith and Trust require flexibility. When one door closes, another opens. If you keep staring at the door that has just closed, you may not see the one that is opening. This month we need to look at our attachments to old dreams and the way we thought things should have been or ought to have worked out. Release what is still holding you back from the exquisite potential of the unknown. Let go of regrets and disappointments especially if they are in any way connected to your external expectations. Your inner life is the key here and at the end, it is all you really have.

How do you organize your spiritual life?

Start with anchoring a practice of some kind, something you can do every day at the same time that serves as a reminder and a reference point for your Faith and Trust in a larger Spiritual energy. It could be a meditation or saying prayers or doing a walking practice. Build a little altar in your home that can serve as an external anchor for your inner reference point. Spend some time every day strengthening the inner core of who you are and be very disciplined about not matching or sympathizing with fear patterns that you may witness happening around you. They will all be connected to some external drama that is not necessary for you to experience.

If external events are directly affecting you, stay neutral and see all change as a positive expression of necessary evolution. When the going gets tough, have a way to remind yourself of the larger picture and of the Faith and Trust that will carry you forward.

How the month shows up



This is an excellent month to discover your “higher mind” of expanded perceptions, new ideas and higher centered inspiration. The challenge will be to keep your basic ego driven intellectual center from arguing with you about what is not going to work and why. Faith and Trust are not rational and therefore not of the rational mind. Just thank your rational mind for sharing and then move on to what is more important.

What is more important is organizing your inner spiritual life. It is a powerful month to connect or reconnect with all of your unseen helpers and spirit guides and to establish a discipline of acknowledging the unseen world that you are building more faith and trust in. Remember that you have the opportunity to greatly expand your container of what is possible in your life.

Practice imagining what it would be like to be someone that can climb a mountain or run a marathon or paint a masterpiece or compose a symphony or live till 150 years old in a healthy body or build a house from scratch or make a billion dollars or write a novel or practice magic or anything else that seems completely out of reach for you. It is a great time to pose “what if” questions to the quantum field and release them with Faith and Trust.

You have the opportunity to strengthen your inner spiritual life and navigate through the chaos of destruction and creativity as long as you practice Faith and Trust.


The most important relationships this month are your relationship with yourself and your relationship with spirit. If you don’t get your relationship with yourself on line, your relationships with others will not evolve in a positive direction. How is your relationship with yourself? Where is it weak? Where is it strong?

As part of building a stronger inner container, the experience and higher “knowing” of being interconnected with all beings is a powerful force. It will fertilize and nurture your inner life giving it the strength, power and certainty that is needs to support Faith and Trust in the right unfolding of your path in life. This is good month to build trust in your intuition and to have faith that what you feel is right and what you sense is true will guide you in the direction you need to go.

In terms of other relationships in your life, use faith, trust and creativity to be discerning, welcoming, patient and accepting. Don’t get involved in other peoples insanity and drama and don’t take their reactions personally. It will appear at times as if everyone has lost their mind. It is perhaps a good thing in the long run, but navigating the immediate chaos with neutrality will help you keep your own sanity. You need to trust that everything will work out according to a larger plan of collective spiritual evolution.


The theme around the environment revolves around making space. We are expanding our container of how we define our environment and what and how we expect our environment to react, support, interfere with and influence what we do and how we do it. This pertains to all environment whether it is your personal one, the political one, your family one, your community one, your physical one, the natural one etc. The themes of last month of consolidation and priorities are still important and will continue to influence this area of our lives. The expanded container requires letting go of prior definitions and attachments and trusting that what is showing up to support you is the right thing.

In terms of weather, it is not a good idea to try and predict anything especially when you make plans you are attached to based on a random weather forecast. Be flexible and creative and honor the creativity of the weather as an expression of the whole environment.


This is the month to try new things and to have faith and trust that they will work. Whether it is a new dietary program, a new exercise discipline, a new health practitioner in your life or a new supplement or practice, the focus on your physical health and well being needs an infusion of responsibility and trust that your choices are the right ones. Faith and Trust follow commitment and a new commitment to focus on your health and physical well-being will bring the right support your way.

Physical challenges may include blood sugar issues and ups and downs in energy levels. Make sure you get enough rest and enough protein. The body is trying to adjust to a new frequency and vibration and will sometimes feel like it has too much energy and sometimes not enough. It is also easy to become irritable and touchy. It is as if we are in an energetically hormonal time. Keep yourself well rested and well fed, as any sense of deprivation will not go over well this month.


If you know you are on the right track and you have the right people and you have good ideas and you can feel that there is support for your project and most of all that you have inspiration and enthusiasm for it, then Faith and Trust are the missing ingredients to moving forward. Look for signs that you are on the right track and don’t be afraid to think out of the box. What things look like to be true on the physical as they are currently manifesting may not be true on the spiritual potential of where they are going. Growth and expansion always starts with a seed that you cannot see until the seedling breaks the surface of the soil. And the flowering comes much later.

So this is a good month to plant the seeds of what you wish to manifest and water them with faith and trust. If you keep fertilizing, feeding and watering with these two energies, they will eventually gather the support they need to come into full bloom.

On the more practical side, this is a good month for taking a risk and expanding your container in some way even if your attachment to security tells you otherwise. You don’t have to know how it will work, you just have to be committed to the discipline of working with faith and trust…
