As has been said here previously in these writings, manifestation depends on belief, faith, and trust. It needs to be stated, however, that the most critical and profound trust we need to have is in ourselves.
This trust in the self extends beyond simply believing we can accomplish what we have envisioned. It means having trust in our processes, our methods, our inklings and inspirations. Trusting in ourselves means listening to the inner voice that prompts and guides us to take certain paths or make certain decisions.
The mechanics and gear works within the process of manifestation are turned by our intuition. The driving force behind every action we take that moves us closer to our intended goals is based on the knowing that resides within our deepest selves. We can calculate the most effective approach in our actions, we can discern the clearest course to navigate toward our goals, but it is our intuition that knows the best way forward, better than any well laid plan.
Our inner knowing may guide us away from what we thought would be the best approach to take. It may prompt and lead us in a direction that has us feel like we have lost ground. It may even encourage us to take a course of action that results in an undesired outcome. However, our intuition has the ability to see through fog. It has the ability to see in total darkness. It knows where our future and our desired outcome intersect, and knows the best way there. It does not adhere to rules of reason or calculation; it simply knows.
It is trust in this true knowing that will, with all certainty, lead us to where we need to be most, to what will provide us with the greatest level of fulfillment in our lives.
