Episode 27: How to Regain Trust When Life Has Betrayed You

trans101

 

In this episode Gia begins by sharing Something Positive: a program in an elementary school in Baltimore that teaches children breath work and meditation instead of sending them to detention. They send a misbehaving child to a “Mindful Moment” room for reflection and some calming meditation. This program has yielded very positive results for the school – well done!

Next Gia and Karen talk about how to regain trust after you’ve been betrayed by another person or by life itself. It’s important to learn some recovery skills so that betrayals don’t cause us to spiral down into victimhood or fear. The conversation includes:

  • betrayal is a normal part of life – everyone is just human, trying to do the best they can
  • ultimately our trust should be in ourselves and our own Divinity rather than in people or things outside of ourselves
  • if we truly trust ourselves and our higher power then we don’t need anyone else in our lives to be totally trustworthy
  • betrayal can cause us to contract in fear and make ourselves small for self-protection if we don’t learn how to cope with it
  • even if we’ve healed the past we have to be open to betrayal happening again – have equanimity and compassion for others who are just being human
  • be able to take the Galaxy view and recognize that life has no guarantees and offers us many different opportunities to learn our lessons
  • betrayal is one of the biggest lessons we each must learn – so accept from the outset that life is going to bring this experience
  • we can allow others to be who they are when we place our trust within – we don’t require others to be perfect for us
  • we can become bitter if we expect our God to always prevent “bad” things from happening to us – this is a misunderstanding of what life is all about
  • Tips for regaining trust:
    • turn to prayer and meditation when you feel hurt or betrayed
    • accept your feelings rather than judging them
    • trace your own life journey and recognize all of the unexpected things that have happened, both surprises and disappointments; look for patterns in the ups and downs and recognize how life is teaching you certain lessons
    • consider that your current betrayals may be pointing you toward old wounds that still need to be healed
    • focus on loving yourself even more, especially when you feel fear
    • know that you have the power to take care of yourself and to make the highest choices for yourself
