Mindful Noting: Trust

Mindful Noting: Trust

  • February 26, 2014

When you cultivate the qualities for mindful self-esteem, you plant the seed of trust. Start by recognizing when doubt is occurring.  Pay attention to bodily tension or tightness; if you’re thinking comes more through concepts and constructs than by your direct experience and your own inner wisdom; and if there’s an emotional tow of confusion, uncertainty, and lack of self-confidence.

Notice when trust is occurring and get to know it through body sensations, thoughts, and emotions.  Pay attention to whether your posture is upright and relaxed; if your thinking is impersonal, and you recognize the natural unfolding of experience and your basic goodness; and if this leads to a feeling of confidence, self-appreciation, and self-reliance. Allow the wholesomeness of trust to infuse within you so you can remind yourself to keep coming back to it, moment by moment, breath by breath.
