Last week I watched a DVD which was very inspiring, it was called, “The Intern.” It featured a wise old man in his seventies with life experience who becomes an intern to a young self-made woman. At the beginning of the film she sees her intern as an irritation, she feels she knows better in her ego driven, self-absorbed world of dramas and traumas. The old sage (i.e. Intern) who says almost nothing, just observes, stays in the background and quietly supports her. She finally realises instead of feeling threatened by him, she sees the value of his kind support. In life our eternal old soul is sitting in the background pumping out security. Always telling us if we listen, “all is ok, you are eternal, life is a gift, relax and enjoy the ride”. But if we do not connect to the eternal part within us, we are always in the foreground feeling we cannot trust because we have been let down by past relationships, family, friends, etc.
It is easy to trust when things are going well but very difficult when life dissolves into chaos. It can feel like everyone else is getting what they want,but why is that no happening to me? This means you really need to change your inner reality to create the change you want to see.
How do you trust? Trust is knowing you will be fine no matter what. But how do you get that feeling? Trust comes from connection to that quiet, inner sage who always loves you and it looking out for you. This love and commitment to yourself develops a deep inner knowing. Despite the external circumstances nothing can shake you. In those moments of foreground insecurity you have to find your key to connect to your eternal background security, which will allow you to travel from desperation to inspiration where everything becomes possible. Breath in Trust. Consciously breathing deeply through your nose can make you feel really secure and good. Conscious breathing tells our subconscious mind that all is well, I am alive. This gives us a feeling of trust and security. Also try this mantra meditation, it helps release fears and replace them with trust and commitment.

Meditation for Trust: Chant the Wahe Guru Mantra
Sit in Easy Pose with the hands in Gyan Mudra. Chant Wahe Guru (wah-hay goo-roo) for 11 minutes.
Chant along with the version of the Wahe Guru Mantra below.
Wahe is a statement of awe and ecstasy. Guru is that which brings us from darkness to light. Wahe Guru is an expression of complete ecstatic awe of the Divine. It expresses the indescribable experience of going from darkness to light (from ignorance to true understanding). It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. A trikutee mantra, it balances the energies of the generating, organizing, and transforming principles. It expresses ecstasy through knowledge and experience. It is the gurmantra, which triggers the destiny.
