Background: Your Higher Self is the most perfect form of "you" that exists in the universe. It is always gently guiding you on your journey through life. It's guidance manifests itself in your life in many ways: as a still small voice, as vivid images, as flashes of insight, and as intuition and knowingness. If your Higher Self has led you to these exercises and has gotten you to read this, then you are ready to do them.

Trust always contains an element of risk inside it. If the person keeps your trust, then all will be well. If the person fails to keep your trust, then you are risking all the consequences that flow from the breaking of that trust.

Goal: In past lives, people suffered and died when the trust they placed in others was broken. Often, such painful experiences leave an individual unable to trust others. If you find yourself unable to trust others, doing these exercises can help to open you up to trusting. You are here because lack of trust has/is ruining your life.

If there is one thing old souls have in common, it is that they find it hard to trust others and to trust life. Often the deepest mistrust issues are those which drive our behavior... for reasons that we are totally unaware of because we have forgotten the painful emotions causing them. We cannot heal what we do not know about. This series of Trust exercises are designed to bring the sources of hidden-unconscious mistrust issues directly to the surface of your conscious awareness.

Preparation:

1> When you are in a quiet place where you will be undisturbed for 30 minutes.

2> When you are with someone else who you trust deeply.
     The
participant is the one who experiences the exercise.
     The
partner is the one who assists in the participant in their experience.

These exercises are designed for pairs cannot be done alone. Each exercise is done twice so each has a turn at both roles. The point is to reach out to someone else and discover for yourself that it is safe to do so... this is the essence of trust. The more open you are, the greater the release of any painful mistrust inside.

3> Do just one exercise at a time. Do each exercise as often as it takes for you to feel comfortable with it. Mistrust that was built up over centuries in past lives will take time in the present to break down. Remember that trusting is essential to create vibrant health, abundant wealth, and happiness in relationships.

4> How ready you are to receive guidance from your Higher Self (assuming that your body is reasonably healthy and clear) is what will determine how long it will take you to connect with it. The more you open yourself to trust, the more easily you will feel your Higher Self's guidance flowing through you.

How to Do This Exercise:

"It is better to suffer wrong than to do it. It is happier to be cheated than never to trust." (Samuel Johnson)

Earth Cradle: Know more trust by deeper connection with Earth.

The Earth teaches us to trust. We just expect that the Earth will always be there under our feet, that there will always be air to breath, and that we can always co-create the food, shelter, and clothing we need.

We take the Earth for granted, trusting that it has-is-always-will-be there for us. The Earth holds all of our memories: those that we remember and those that we have forgotten… until we find that it is safe to remember them.

Although we might have forgotten things, the Earth never forgets and it helps us to release what no longer serves us when it is safe for us to do so. Connection with the Earth-nature helps to release these issues.


This Trust exercise is meant to be done outside in temperate weather.

- The participant lies with their back on the Earth, intentionally connecting their chakras to it.
- The partner beams unconditional love to the participant one Chakra at a time from the Root all the way to the Crown.
- This is a
silent exercise: allowing the participant to connect to the Earth and unleash their forgotten memories.

Trust Walking: Know more trust by taking a blind walk.

Part 1: Trust Walk - Very Easy

- The participant is blindfolded and stands behind their partner.
- The participant rests their hands on their partner's shoulder.
- The partner sets the direction by walking and
   talks describing the route taken.
Part 2: Trust Walk - Easy
- The participant is blindfolded and stands in front of their partner.
- The partner rests their hands on their participant's shoulder.
- The partner sets the direction by describing the route taken and
   follows the participant.
Part 3: Trust Walk - Moderate
- The participant is blindfolded and stands beside their partner.
- The participant rests one hand on their partner's shoulder.
- The partner sets the direction by describing the route taken and
   follows the participant.
Part 4: Trust Walk - Hard
- The participant is blindfolded and stands beside their partner.
- The participant rests one hand on their partner's hand.
- The partner sets the direction by describing the route taken and
   follows the participant.
Part 5: Trust Walk - Very Hard
- The participant is blindfolded and stands beside their partner.
- There is no physical contact between the participant and the partner.
- The partner sets the direction by describing the route taken and
   follows the participant.

Blind Trust: Know more trust by releasing fears of the dark.

Fears of the dark are the most deep seated fears caused by traumatic deaths in darkness during past lives. The most fearful things often are those which happen to us in the dark... when we cannot see what is around us.

For example, Space Mountain at Disneyworld is the most scary roller coaster ride even though it is a fairly simple series of twists and turns. What makes it scary is that those riding it cannot see what is coming at them seemingly out of nowhere. So they just cannot make any adjustments to make those twists and turns easier to bear.
The inability to see the future is the scariest aspect of living life on Earth… for anything can happen at any time… changing a person's life forever in the blink of an eye. In many past societies, life was a grim business and death was always lurking around the corner. If predatory humans or animals did not get you, there were always deadly diseases, permanent injuries, or natural disasters along the way.

Many times the terror of such events was magnified when they happened in the dark. This is why Blind Trust exercise is designed to help you release fears of the dark… that came from past life traumas.
In the "Blind Trust" exercise, the participant asks for fears of the dark to be released:
- The participant is blindfolded and lies on the Earth with their hands and feet connected to it.
- The partner performs random motions around the participant (walking around them and so on).
- The participant relates their thoughts/feelings about being blindfolded, about their partner's actions, etc.
- The partner should only question the participant if what they are relating is not clear.
- This exercise should last for at least 30 minutes (unless the participant gets unduly agitated).

The true importance of the partner is to assist the participant during the release process. A sympathetic ear, a warm hug, a shoulder to cry on… all these are invaluable when buried memories bubble up forcefully to the surface of the participant's conscious awareness.
This can be a very powerful exercise for those who are open to it. That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. This teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them. At the end of this process, the dark should be much less fearful.

Empathy Trust: Know more trust through a Buddhist initiation rite.

This exercise is part of the Buddhist initiation rites for new entrants into a monastery. The goal of this exercise is to promote understanding of what it is like to be a small person in a gigantic universe. For when we understand how truly small we are, we recognize how important the skills of trusting and having empathy are.

The power of this exercise comes from the partner towering over the prone participant. The participant will feel what it is like to be a small child again. Feelings of helplessness, powerlessness, or vulnerability that the participant has ever experienced during their life will surface.

Memories that are associated with those feelings will be reawakened. The sources of any mistrust of others, of nature, or of life in general are bound to come up as well. Allowing the participant to experience long buried emotions helps them to become free of them. It also helps them to become more open to trusting and feeling empathy for others.
When we fear trusting or showing empathy for others, we really fear that we are risk being vulnerable. In the "Empathy & Trust" exercise, the participant asks for these fears to be released:
- The participant poses as "hunk-on-the-beach" (lying on one side propping their head up with a hand).
- The partner performs random motions around the participant (walking around them and so on).
- The participant relates their thoughts/feelings about being on the ground, partner's actions, etc.
- The partner should only question the participant if what they are relating is not clear.
- This exercise should last for at least 15 minutes (unless the participant gets unduly agitated).

The true importance of the partner is to assist the participant during the release process. A sympathetic ear, a warm hug, a shoulder to cry on… all these are invaluable when buried memories bubble up forcefully to the surface of the participant's conscious awareness.
This can be a very powerful exercise for those who are open to it. That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. This teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them. At the end of this process, the participant should be much less fearful.

3-Positions Body: Know more trust via physical sense memory.

Trust in Three (3) Positions can help to jog sense memory in the body about why it is unsafe to trust. We experience life either standing up, sitting down, or lying down. When memories are recorded through our senses, the body also notes what position it was holding at the time (standing, sitting, lying down).

To unlock forgotten memories, the participant experiences each position to reconnect with issues ready for healing.

- The participant stands with their bare feet connected to the Earth.
- The partner gives the participant 4 commands, one at a time:
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were ANGRY.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were FEARFUL.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were HURT.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were FRUSTRATED.
- The participant sits with their bare legs connected to the Earth.
- The partner gives the participant 4 commands, one at a time:
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were ANGRY.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were FEARFUL.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were HURT.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were FRUSTRATED.
- The participant lies down with their body connected to the Earth.
- The partner gives the participant 4 commands, one at a time:
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were ANGRY.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were FEARFUL.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were HURT.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were FRUSTRATED.
This can be a very powerful exercise for those who are open to it. That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. This teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them. At the end of this process, the participant should be much less fearful.

1-Position Mind: Know more trust through a Japanese trust ritual.

Trust in 1 Position can help to jog sense memory in the mind about why it is unsafe to trust. Optimists believe that a stranger is just a friend you have not met yet. Pessimists believe that a stranger is a potential threat you have not discovered yet.

The truth is that people are both... friends and threats. One of the things we are here to learn is how to discern who is a friend and who is an enemy. If you believe that strangers are all threats to be avoided at all costs... then you are suffering from
"People Paranoia". This "People Paranoia" is the result of bad treatment by others in this life and in past lives -and- is the "reason" the mind has to mistrust others.

Overcoming the mind's resistance to trusting is a similar process to helping the body to overcome its resistance to trusting. This exercise was based on the belief, in traditional Japanese culture, that the highest mark of trust is to allow another person to access the back of one's neck. That is why the only part of a geisha that is unclothed is the back of the neck where it joins the shoulders and torso.

This is a crucial junction in the body which is very sensitive and vulnerable. In this neck area, the body can experience great pleasure or agonizing pain. To unlock forgotten memories, the participant experiences their vulnerable neck area to reconnect with issues ready for healing.

- The participant sits with their legs connected to the Earth.
- The partner sits or kneels behind the participant and places
their palms on the back of the neck.
- The partner gives the participant 4 commands, one at a time:
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were ANGRY.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were FEARFUL.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were HURT.
Remember what you have forgotten about learning to mistrust because you were FRUSTRATED.
This can be a very powerful exercise for those who are open to it. That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. This teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them. At the end of this process, the participant should be much less fearful.

Back-to-Back: Know more trust via alignment of "energy stars".

Our world view causes us to trust or mistrust others. Yet how often do we examine it to see if it is right? When it comes to trusting, we live inside our own world view. Over many past lives we have formed strong opinions about when it is and is not safe to trust people. For example, here is what excites my mistrust:

Those who are into substance abuse because those who trash the temple of body-mind are likely to harm others.
Those who lie routinely about everything: even when it would benefit them to tell the truth.
Those who say one thing but do another: this is the hallmark of con artists, scammers, and cheaters.
Those who choose not to remember significant details: resulting in them routinely breaking promises.
Those who have power: but choose to use it for their own selfish, controlling, and/or destructive ends.
Those who have money: but choose to be cheap with themselves and those they claim to love.
Those who "diss" subordinates and "suck up" to superiors: their treatment of others based on rank is rank.
This exercise challenges us to defend our world view - and in so doing - to decide what parts of it do/do not still serve us. For when we must defend it to others… we really are justifying it all over again to ourselves.
- The participant and the partner sit back-to-back with their legs connected to the Earth.
- The partner questions each item on the participant's list, challenging them to defend it.
- If the partner "feels" that the participant is not being truthful, they will need to challenge this.
- This works the best when the participant is open to what the partner may tell them.
When we sit back to back, the
"energy stars" on our backs align (energy stars are "fingerprints" on our backs and are the way people unconsciously recognize one another). This alignment helps us to connect with deeper truths so that we can become more comfortable in evaluating and reassessing our world view.

When we sit back to back with someone we trust, this can open us up very powerfully.
That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. The true importance of the partner is to assist the participant during the release process.

A sympathetic ear, a warm hug, a shoulder to cry on… all these are invaluable when buried memories bubble up forcefully to the surface of the participant's conscious awareness. This also teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them.

Front-to-Front: Know more trust through intensive touching.

Our mistrust issues can often be uncovered by unleashing our stream of consciousness through touch. If you think about how few people you actually allow touch you, (apart from handshakes and other social gestures requiring touch), you will realize that anyone's opportunities for being touched lovingly are very limited.

Yet your body and mind require the nourishment of touch, love, and joy as much as they require food and drink. Did you know that most people are touch deprived? It's true. That is why being touched is a powerful thing for anyone/everyone.

When individuals receive concentrated doses of touch directly from the Palm
Chakra, it can create miracles. The Palm Chakra is the most powerful Minor Chakra in the body. Working the Palm Chakra really opens up an individual's energy field and helps them to more easily access their issues (because the Palm Chakra is all about unconditional love).

The power of this exercise comes from doing it for 30 minutes without interruption.

- The participant and the partner sit front-to-front with their legs connected to the Earth (usually they sit in the Lotus position with their knees touching).
- The participant and the partner touch palms in a specific pattern:
Participant's dominant hand (what they write with) goes on top of the partner's hand.
Participant's other hand (the non-writing hand) goes under the participant's hand.
To make this comfortable, the hands rest on a pillow on their lap.
- The participant talks about whatever comes to mind on the topics of trust/mistrust.
The partner remains silent EXCEPT to clarify things and to keep the talk on topic.
When we sit front to front with someone we trust, this can open us up very powerfully. That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. The true importance of the partner is to assist the participant during the release process.

A sympathetic ear, a warm hug, a shoulder to cry on… all these are invaluable when buried memories bubble up forcefully to the surface of the participant's conscious awareness. This also teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them. It will also help the individuals involved to feel more comfortable with being touched.

Eye Contact: Know more trust through intensive eye contact.

Eye contact can be helpful in breaking down a person's resistance to becoming more open to trust. Before the development of language and civilization, people evaluated one another through smell and eye contact.

Even today, people take comfort is seeing photographs of others. By looking at their face and by looking into their eyes, people make judgments as to whether they can trust the one pictured. There is some truth to the old saying that "eyes are the windows of the Soul" because eyes can project love and kindness or hate and evil.

For example, when people look into the eyes of criminals, many claim they can see "the evil" lurking inside their eyes. Fortunately, most people have love and kindness in their eyes which invites trust… and can help to build it.

Eye contact is the first step in establishing trust with another person before we get a chance to speak or interact with them. Those who are open and trusting confidently look others in the eye. Those who are mistrustful avoid eye contact at all costs. The habit of looking (but not staring) at others in the eye helps build trust.

- The participant and the partner stand facing each other and looking into each other's eyes.
- They both start by consciously filling their eyes and their facial expressions with love.
- The space between them must be no more than from the elbow to the fingers of the largest person.
- There is no other contact between the pair except for REALLY looking into one another's eyes.
- Sunglasses must be removed... but eyeglasses must be worn - the pair must see one another.
- The participant relates their thoughts/feelings about this while the partner just listens.
- This is a progressive exercise: starting with 30 seconds and working up to 5 minutes.
This can be a very powerful exercise for those who are open to it. That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. The true importance of the partner is to assist the participant during the release process.

A sympathetic ear, a warm hug, a shoulder to cry on… all these are invaluable when buried memories bubble up forcefully to the surface of the participant's conscious awareness. This also teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them. It will also help the individuals involved to feel more comfortable with eye contact.

Hand Contact: Know more trust through the Palm Chakras.

Hand contact can be helpful in breaking down a person's resistance to becoming more open to trust. Hands contain the Palm Chakra which is the most powerful Minor Chakra and can draw universal energy very rapidly into the body.

By varying the touches memories are unleashed. This works on the basis of
"Sense Memory": our "memories" are always getting jogged by "sensory" triggers. A favorite song can remind us of a romantic date. A special scent can remind us of a happy time. A certain smile or laugh can remind us of someone we once loved.

When we are children, we explore and discover our world by touching things with our hands and feeling energy though our palms. When we are adults, we explore and discover our world with our minds and our hearts. Yet, long before we are adults, our hands are full of memories of different kinds of touches.
A certain touch can reminds us why we mistrust and where that originated in past lives.

To make this comfortable, the hands rest on a pillow on their lap.

- The participant and the partner with their legs connected to the Earth (usually they sit in the Lotus position with their knees touching).
- The participant is blind-folded with palms facing up.

- The partner does a series of moves on the palms of the participant. These include: shaking hands, clapping, finger/fingertip lines, etc.
- The participant talks about whatever comes to mind on the topics of trust/mistrust. Memories are bound to be unleashed by these touches.
- The partner remains silent EXCEPT to clarify things and to keep the discussion on the topics of trust/mistrust.
This can be a very powerful exercise for those who are open to it. That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. The true importance of the partner is to assist the participant during the release process.

A sympathetic ear, a warm hug, a shoulder to cry on… all these are invaluable when buried memories bubble up forcefully to the surface of the participant's conscious awareness. This also teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them. It will also help the individuals involved to feel more comfortable with hand contact.

Proximity Detector: Know more trust through physical closeness.

Look around a crowded airport when there are massive plane cancellations and you will see loving couples in close proximity to one another. People who have been up for many consecutive hours keep themselves awake by holding one another face to face while rocking back and forth. This is the ultimate form of physical trusting which is why people seek to be in romantic relationships.

This illustrates this important learning about trust: the closer we allow someone to come to us physically, the more we show that we trust them. Whether we are aware of it or not, we all have invisible circles around us.

We allow people into those circles based on their relationship to us. If someone steps out of their place in our circles and comes too close, we will instinctively draw back from them and create more space.

However, if we allow others to physically come closer to us, it will make them feel like we trust them more and vice versa. Personal space can be used in breaking down a person's resistance to becoming more open to trust.

- The participant and the partner stand facing each other at a comfortable distance apart.
- The participant describes their thoughts/feelings at this safe distance (the baseline).

- The partner then moves closer (no more than 3 steps at a time).
- The participant describes their thoughts/feelings at having their partner at this closer distance.

- This process is repeated until the participant and the partner are only a hand's length apart.
- If the pair really trusts one another, they might want to try touching one another with their whole body. [This should only be done if both parties are in full agreement with doing so.]
This can be a very powerful exercise for those who are open to it. That is why it should NEVER be attempted alone. The true importance of the partner is to assist the participant during the release process.

A sympathetic ear, a warm hug, a shoulder to cry on… all these are invaluable when buried memories bubble up forcefully to the surface of the participant's conscious awareness. This also teaches the participant that it is safe to trust because they can rely on their partner to nurture and support them. It will also help the individuals involved to feel more comfortable about personal space.

Fall Back: Know more trust through falling into another's arms.

Falling back is another classic and famous trust building exercise! You will never forget doing it! This goal of this "Fall Back" exercise is to learn to let go and trust another to keep you safe physically... when you cannot see it happening.

Quite simply, the essence of TRUST is to rely on another person to do what they have promised when there is a risk of harm if they fail to do so. In other words, an adverse consequence will result whenever trust is broken.

The participant stands in front of the partner and falls backward into the arms of their partner. This requires trust because, in falling backward, the participant has no way to keep themselves from being injured as would happen when falling forward.

Quite literally, the falling participant must rely on the partner catching them to keep them safe. What the participant risks by trusting the partner is physical injury.


Keep the following things in mind while doing this "Fall Back" exercise:

- Taking this leap of faith should be done with safety in mind. The falling participant should fall into an area covered with cushions, pillows, and blankets just in case the partner makes a mistake! There should be enough protective padding available to cushion the participant were they to fall backward without being caught.

- Falling Participant: The one who falls must be well enough to do so. A person with any back/neck problems or other health problems that would make falling inadvisable should never attempt to do this exercise! If the participant feels nervous or uncomfortable, they should not do this exercise.

- Catching Partner: The one who catches must be strong enough to do so. A short, petite woman is unlikely to catch a tall, burly man with any degree of success. So use some common sense! Remember that the partner's full attention ALWAYS should be focused on the participant's physical safety!

- If either person feels unsafe in doing this exercise, it should not be attempted. If the participant does not know the partner well, they may want to rethink doing this exercise. No one can learn to trust by doing a fearful exercise.

Examples: are included throughout the section on "How to Do This Exercise".
