Nature’s Wisdom: Trust

Trust-minThis week’s article is inspired by my participation in a hangout in which we will be discussing trust.

Nature teaches us that trust is intrinsic and fundamental to its identity. It is inherent within Mother Nature to trust herself and allow others to do the same and to know the difference between trusting, hoping and wishing.

file0001418679561Nature teaches us that trusting is about connecting to oneself. We have all heard or seen a mother bird push a baby bird out of the nest. When this baby is pushed out of the nest, it places its trust in its own capacity to fly. It doesn’t waste any energy wishing and hoping that its mother won’t push it out or believe that because its mother can fly, it will fly also. It turns its energy into trusting itself to KNOW that it has everything it needs to get through this situation.

The mother bird trusts herself to do what she is meant to do in her role as the parent. She might hope and wish for the baby bird to trust itself enough to fly but it’s up to the baby bird to fly.

As the mother bird puts one baby bird out of the nest, the others look on and trust that they can find it within themselves to be able to fly and become part of the whole. They do not put any energy in hoping and wishing that the other baby will fly. They concentrate on trusting themselves to have the ability to fly when their turn comes.

Once the baby bird has taken its first flight, the trust is established but it needs to be nourished. Nature teaches us that trust is a growing process, it’s like a muscle that is strengthened, through consistent training.

The baby bird learns to trust itself within its capacities, capabilities, strengths and limits. While facing different elements, storms, distances, predators, it acquires trust in itself. This trust allows for focus and clarity about who he is. The acquired trust helps him to become a better flyer, allowing him to be stronger and more agile. Trusting its own abilities to face what is coming.

Mother Nature teaches us that trust is a process that takes place over time, while facing the different situations, elements and storms. If that baby bird has to face a tornado on its first day of flying, its chances of survival are very slim because it has not acquired the clarity and focus required to trust its own capacity to face such a situation.  Trust is something that grows and adapts with the bird, it learns that about itself.

The next time you come across a situation, ask yourself if you trust yourself or if you are hoping and wishing that this situation will evolve as you would like.

    Thank you so much for your comment Debra, I’m glad you resonated with it. Trust is definitely a process from childhood into adulthood. And I think that the more we use it, the better we get at trusting ourselves.

  4. Nicole, this article is beautiful. It spoke to me today. Trusting our own capacity to fly comes in stages. It truly is a natural instinct that can shift as we grow from childhood into adults. The instructions to fly is within us, just like the baby birds are. When we take responsibility that we create it all, our wings expand in anticipation of flight.

  5. Hello, dear Nicole!
    The single biggest act of responsibility is clearly to trust ourselves. Energy is power and we have so much to expand!
    By amplifying our own power, we create an I believe capacity to adapt and change. I so love how nature offers everything we need. And I am always happy to be inspired by you!
