To have faith, is to have deep sense of trust in what cannot be seen. Proof or evidence is not needed. Rather it is an inner sense of knowing that guides you.
To trust the process, wholly, completely, is to not need to know what is unfolding or why, but to simply be here in the present to experience it.
Recently, circumstances of my life have unfolded in such a way, that I have been left me with a newfound respect for the divine process of life.
Try as I might, I can no longer remain in what is known. And things can no longer go according to my plan.
To trust the process means to know and have faith that there is a divine plan moving through you and your life in any moment.
Even if you cannot understand what is unfolding right now, you have an unshakeable sense of trust that the reason that this is happening is because circumstances are rearranging for your higher good.
The Inner Shift
When dramatic external shifts unfold in our lives, they usually arise as a result of us making an inner shift or decision.
We may not even be aware that we have done it. But it has happened.
For me, I recently made a powerful inner choice to say yes to my inner guidance. For weeks I had the words “Next Level or Nothing “ringing in my ears on repeat. Initially, I had not known what it meant and I had tried hard to ignore it.
But the other day, something shifted inside of me. I felt myself drop in to a deep space within me and as I allowed myself to feel that feeling wholly and completely, I felt my whole being say a powerful and resounding “Yes”.
And ever since then, life has totally shifted.
The rug has been pulled out from under my feet now. And while it is scary, I have a profound sense of calmness as I know why this is happening.
All I can do is take life one moment at a time, placing a deep faith in my guidance, and a profound sense of trust in the unknown.
I feel I am really being called to live what I teach.
You see ‘trust the process’ is a beautiful phrase to say, but are you living it?
It is not until you are standing naked and vulnerable with all that you thought you knew stripped away, that you really are forced to practice, live and breathe that profound level of trust.
This is where you have your beautiful opportunity to implement, practise and embody everything you have come to know.
Place Faith In The Unknown
When we trust the process, we allow the realm of the intangible to guide our ship and lead us step by step on our journey.
Faith is a practice built upon a strong relationship with yourself. With your true self.
I have struggled with faith my entire life. Trusting the unknown. Trusting partners and friends. Trusting that if I let go of my white knuckled grip that I will be safe and my needs will be met.
I have progressed substantially on this journey over the past few years. And the strengthening in my faith has not come from trying to attain it. Nor by working to become more trusting or cultivate a greater sense of flow. Rather it has naturally arisen as a result of coming to know myself in a greater, deeper and much more profound way.
Because when you really know who you are, how can you not have faith?
Walk With Feeling
Having trust requires you to close your eyes, to take your attention off the world around you and to bring your awareness inwards. You do this as you know that what you can sense on feel on the inside is more real than anything you can touch, see or experience on the outside.
Faith is built on that knowing. A knowing of the truth.
It is to live with complete trust in the process is to feel your way through life. Moment by moment.
When you walk with faith you walk with feeling. You make decisions based on your delicate inner whispers, the energy that tugs at your heart and calls you towards what you love.
What others say is irrelevant. What your world shows you is possible ceases to impact. Nothing sways you.
You are guided by an inner force. This is the force that creates worlds, that is as infinite as the Universe and which has the power to paint whatever picture on the screen of your life that you wish to see.
What you see is irrelevant, as you know that you only see what you want to see.
What you see with your eyes is fragile, changeable and unstable. It is a mass of swirling energy constantly rearranging itself to reflect it’s creator – you.
To live with faith is to know who you are.
Let Yourself Be Guided
Seek to only find your answers within. As this is the only source of truth in this world.
So, close your eyes my loves. Feel in to your desires. Allow the energy of who you are to move through you and guide you on your path.
Release your need to know, to control or to see any further ahead than this moment, right now.
You don’t need to see it with your eyes. You don’t need to know what is going to happen.
Just let go and trust the process beautiful.
All is well.

A wonderful post that spoke straight to my core and where I’m at in my journey Connie. I’ve been challenging myself of late to let go. To be free of worry and control and to put faith in the universe. To trust that things will unfold exactly as they need to. Ever since then I’ve been constantly presented with beautiful words, such as yours, which have reinforced that this is exactly what I need to be doing. Thank you. X
Yes, this is exactly what I am experiencing too. The more and more I let go, the more I allow my guidance to step in and support me. It is scary initially to release our control and surrender to what is unfolding but we will be so powerfully supported when we do. Thank you for your comment beautiful x
Gosh its the hardest thing sometimes! Especially when you can feel where you need to go but don’t know how on earth the road is going to pave to get you there. Something that can never be doubted is that stress sure isnt going to get you there any faster!
Such lovely words, words I will continue to remind myself as everything unfolds. The world can pull my attention onto worldy things, its up to me to stay focused within.
Thank you for a lovely reminder 🙂
Ruth, this really is the ultimate practice in making feeling more real than what we can see. We are being called to trust in a more profound way than ever before. it feels like walking blind, but when you are guided by your heart you are always safe xx
Wow! I really needed this today. I, too, have had this need to control so much so that I have been having chest pain, i’m sure from the stress. Your post is the second I have read today about releasing control and I know it’s the Universe telling me to sloooow down and let go. Change is terrifying but it’s the only constant in our lives. Sending you love and gratitude for sharing your vulnerability with the world xoxo
How beautiful Amy that you have manifested the exact guidance you needed to hear. It is the resistance that takes the biggest toll on us, not the change itself. Keep opening up and flowing with the river of live xx
Wow. I really needed this article Connie. Thank You. while reading it, i felt like just letting go, and trusting the process itself. Im usually always trying to plan ahead and trying to control all aspects of my life, but i know i need to let go and trust and have faith in the moments itself and not let them pass. I always miss out on the best parts of my life because i have a need to try and fix it them and i know i need to trust myself and let go, thank you for your encourgaing words and i will defiantly practice to let go of my life and the situations and just let them be and flow freely.
“Because when you really know who you are, how can you not have faith?”
“To live with faith is to know who you are.”
Hello beautiful Connie. Have you written a posy about discovering/knowing who we really are? This is a topic that would be very helpful for me, as I’m having trouble with it.
I adore that quote Sharon!! I have written a little about discovering who you are and it is kind of weaved through my posts. But you have sparked a new idea and I will look into exploring this more deeply x
