Our instincts can lead us well, if we can answer the call.

When I signed up to try zip lining on Kauai, I hadn’t given any thought to my fear of heights. I was with my husband and another couple, and we were on a carefree, getaway weekend. Zip lining? Sure, why not... It didn’t occur to me to feel terror, until I was standing upon on the platform like some crazy helmeted stork atop a nest, wearing a harness that seemed entirely too skimpy and trembling. I looked at the guide with uncertainty: I’m supposed to let go and sail across that ravine on this little string of metal? Yet somehow (well, with some coaxing) I released my toes’ death grip on the wooden platform and let gravity do its thing—I was flying. After a few more tries, I was zipping backward.

Life is full of ravines to sail across, if only we are brave enough to leave the platform. What might be awaiting you? A new job? A new relationship? Going into escrow on a home? Our instincts can lead us well, if we can answer the call. Here are 14 affirmations to build trust in oneself.

  • I know what I know.
  • I hold the wisdom I need.  
  • I am grounded and aware.
  • My intuition is here to guide me.
  • I trust I can deal with difficult things.
  • Happiness is my natural state.
  • Everything I want to be is already within me.
  • I am on the right path and my way is clear.
  • I believe in my strength, and in life’s generosity.
  • Today, all is well and I am safe.
  • I have faith in my own insights.
  • My inner voice is clear and strong.
  • Happiness, peace and love—they are all within me.
  • It takes courage to become who I really am.
