Babies have huge issues of trust and control, as you may have noticed. People who totally trust the Universe, have the power. Do you let go and totally trust the Universe?
For most people, life it is about trust and control. Or more to the point it is about who controls who? Do you feel as though you have to be totally in control of everything and everyone, and all aspects of your life? Or do you feel that your life is always being controlled by others around you?
The truth is, there a fine balance between trust and control. We do not always have control over aspects of our lives, although we like to think that we do. The issue of trust and control is a big one. Most people are afraid of trusting and letting go of control. I am sure we all know people who are absolute “control freaks”!
Trust and Control and tight connective tissues
Annette Noontil in her book “The Body Is The Barometer Of The Soul”, states that when you are overly controlling, this manifests in the body as tight connective tissues. If you have major aspects out of balance around control, you most likely have tight ligaments, tendons and connective tissue. These may be very tight.
I have seen this in many clients over the years. People come in with all sorts of aches and pains. Then when we get down to what is beneath their pain, their ligaments and tendons show up as being very tight and painful. When we discuss what is going on in their lives, i comes down to trust and control.
Trust and control issues can show up in many different ways. They may show up as you constantly trying to control others in your life such as your boss at work, or manipulative work colleagues, because you don’t trust them. It may be that you feel that your partner is always attempting to control you, especially if there are issues around trust or lack of it. Even your children (babies are especially good at this) can be controlling.
It may be that you are not trusting enough, and are attempting to control situations in your life. Situations that you don’t actually have any control of, but feel that you must have control over everything because you cannot let go and trust. You may feel that your entire life is out of control, as you have forgotten to trust. Many of us don’t know how to let go of control, so that you can bring your life back into balance.
Trust and control in a nutshell:
* It can be you controlling others
* You may feel as though others are controlling you
* You may be attempting to control everything and everyone
* There could be issues in your life that you feel are completely out of control
* There may be aspects of your life that may be way beyond your control
* Or that you are feeling you are being totally controlled all of the time
When we boil all of this down, we come to realise that we don’t really have any control of anything or anyone. We do not actually have any control whatsoever. And that there are no circumstances in our lives that we can control.
The ONLY thing that we have control of, and can actually control, is our MIND!
Otherwise, all we can do is sit back and relax, relinquish of all aspects of control, and trust the Universe to have your back. And then there is trust.
