Is trust a matter of belief or emotion? Both, in complexly related ways. Trusting someone, one believes that she will keep her commitments, and at the same time one appraises those commitments as very important for one’s own flourishing. But that latter appraisal is a key constituent part of a number of emotions, including hope, fear, and, if things go wrong, deep grief and loss. Trust is probably not identical to those emotions, but under normal circumstances of life it often proves sufficient for them.

belief in yourself is one of the core tenants of witchcraft.
whenever you are alone and in a tough spot, believe in your inner power and you will be guided by your inner intuitional guide no matter what.
do not let fear, doubt, worry stand in your way on your path to self realization and achievement.
you can progress no matter what, but do remember that being independent doesn't mean to always be alone. it is fine to have outside help and guidance, but make sure it is not a type of co-dependent relationship that chokes out your own natural, spontaneous inner potential. sometimes we have to move away from toxic relationship where we are stifled and or unappreciated and abused in any shape, way, or form.
it takes inner strength to be alone and it can be extremely healthful to take time for ourselves from time to time, just make sure you are not creating a way to run from things and people in general since it also takes inner strength to be with people and take them as they come and as they are. find a balance that is unique to you as an individual. know when you need time alone and when you need the company of others. both are healthy and natural ways of being and expressing oneself and immersing ourselves into other people's company and state of being.

Having someone believe in you can make a world of difference! People believing in me allowed me to believe more in myself and do things I might not have had the confidence to otherwise. To anyone out there who needs an extra boost- this penguin is here to believe in you!

The truth does not require your belief. The truth is real. You can beat it on the ground, you can rip it apart, you can look inside it. Nobody needs to guard the truth from inspection. Nobody needs to tell you that, you know, you can’t look behind the stage.

...atheists and mystics both essentially believe in nothing. The only difference is that mystics spell it with a capital N.

Our God is the master of unanticipated mercies. He’s able to cause great good to spring up unexpectedly out of the hard gravel of life’s most unfavorable circumstances. Watch Him closely. He may do it again today.

And then, of course, you had your real newcomers like Aniger, Goddess of Squashed Animals. Who would have thought that better roads and faster carts would have led to that? But gods grew bigger when called upon at need, and enough minds had cried out, 'Oh god, what was that I hit?'

Spells are like cooking with spices and herbs...
Tumblr media
Cook with love, joy, happiness or any other positive emotion.
Cook with a passion and certainty.
Cook with keeping in mind the Golden Rule.
Cook with patience, understanding and kindness towards others.
Cook up a storm with simple ingredients, but make them stand out with your determination.
Cook with love towards yourself and compassion towards yourself.
Cook with intuition and with some knowledge.
Feel free to improvise.
Feel free to learn something new always.
Feel free to add your own touches.
Feel free to be yourself.
A novice or an experienced witch, it matters not, if your cook and spell with your own heart and let it blossom with belief in your spells.

It is worth speaking positively to yourself even if you have a hard time believing it at first. With enough practice, time, and patience, you’ll start to build up that self confidence and belief in yourself! 💛

When life falls apart, sometimes the most comforting thing we can do is to lie on the floor and watch the lightning—to be reminded that the God who created the world is big enough and loving enough to take care of us too. We may even start singing our favorite worship songs that tell of the might and greatness of our God.

"Look," said Susan, "I'd just like you to know that I don't believe any of this. I don't believe there's a Death of Rats in a cowl carrying a scythe."
"He's standing right in front of you."
"That's no reason to believe it."
"I can see you've certainly had a proper education," said the raven sourly.
Terry Pratchett, Soul Music
