How to build trust in seasons of change part two is a follow-up to last week’s blog discussion, “How to Use Personality Preferences to Build Trust.” As many of you know, I’m a personality-type enthusiast. I believe it to be a remarkable tool to find yourself with a modern-day necessity; a spiritual understanding, aka tapping into your spiritual senses.

Personality typing indicates specific personality characteristics, patterns, behaviors, and attributes of human aspects. In my ten years of studying personality typing, I never felt current resources on the topic that embraced the spiritual senses of SELF, the Divine elements of you; the unseen realms of intuition, gut instincts, serendipity, surprises, trust in Divine Intelligence… Simply put, I believe we have a human Self (mind, ego, fear) and a Divine Self (a spiritual mind, a higher self; our eternal soul) when working in unison creates the true SELF.

Trust In Seasons of Change

This post adds a spiritual component to trust, giving you a clearer picture of how trust works from the Divine SELF, the place of intuition, gut instincts, the realm of the unseen, your spiritual senses, the whispers from the Divine.

If you’re a dedicated psycho-spiritualist, who desires more, watch my 20-minute YouTube video as I explore this topic in great detail or if you prefer catch my reels on Instagram or stories on Pinterest.

If you’re in a season of change and want a guide to help you see beyond the murky waters of change, I’d love to learn more about you and reveal the liberating lessons I learned and now teach through personality typing with a spiritual understanding. Click here to schedule a guided soul session.

A mindshift on change. Let’s see change as nourishment. A refreshment for the soul to bring in new energy; love, abundance, health, wisdom…. Now that’s something we can all TRUST! ––Nina Zapala, Founder the Soul’s Role in Personality Typing.

One Thing You Can Be Sure of Are the Seasons of Change

Seasons, the songs of Mother Nature — spring begets summer, summer begets fall, and fall begets winter. These are nurturing songs flowing, full of color, texture, context, and blessings — forever changing. Trust in the knowledge that change is coming.

Just like nature, we all inevitably face seasons of change. Yet unlike Mother Nature, we grip tight, believing only in what we know, thinking its’ the only way. We fear the unknown until our grip get’s so tight, it cuts us off from the world. For some, the grip will remain. For others, the grip loosens, and we begin opening ourselves up to change.

Letting go of the grip that keeps you stuck starts by taking small steps to trust. Each step allows us to see new outcomes starting to take shape — bringing us a fresh start, a life beyond our imaginations.

Please know, change doesn’t have to be negative. We must shift our minds away from culture conditioning as these ideas go against the law of change. In fact, a joy-filled life is nourished by change. Now, this doesn’t mean you accept every change that comes your way. NO. You have discernment and rely on your personality indicators and messages from Divine consciousness, which you can always trust, to embrace new intentions, manifestations, and desires.

Trust in Divine Timing to Reap the Richest Rewards. –– Nina Zapala, Founder the Soul’s Role in Personality Typing.

Trust And Divine Timing is a Match Made In Heaven

A liberating lesson I learned going through my 7-year life tsunami is to trust in Divine timing, which I truly believe is a match made in heaven. I have countless experiences that tell me so.

We are taught to hurry up and get it done in the Western world; there’s no time like the present…do more, be more, have more, see more. Ok, point made. When we rush through life, we don’t trust what it could be because we’re too busy doing.

It’s like saying to a caterpillar; you’ve got 48 hours to go from a chrysalis (a cocoon) into a butterfly. If you’re not ready, I’m breaking open the cocoon. You can break open the chrysalis before it’s ready, but what you’ll find is an unrecognizable blob. You see, the caterpillar has to change all that it once was to become a beautiful butterfly. If you rush, you get nothing or lesser than outcomes.

Trust in Divine timing to reap the richest rewards. Embrace patience, and understand the best is yet to come. This may be harder for some personalities than others (me 🤪), but embracing a spiritual practice to minimize impatience is a beautiful gift to gift yourself if you know this about yourself.

I share a recent personal story on YouTube on trusting Divine timing.

Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement. — Alfred Adler, Individual Psychology

My Experience of Loss and How Trust Became Actionable

Finding my way through my 7-year life tsunami took me on a journey of trust. Trust became action steps, those I needed to take to move forward. Trust can’t be passive. It requires action, which brings energy to move you forward.

I began to “trust” the wisdom of my inner spark of Divine consciousness, the higher aspect of my being, which worked to guide me into my true SELF. Today, I defer to my inner spark before making decisions. As a human being, I am not without fault, but I’ve committed to making decisions always guided by the Divine spark of consciousness within.

The liberating lesson I learned is when I don’t trust this spark, all hell breaks loose, but it’s usually smooth sailing when I do.

Do you often hear, see, or feel something that is beyond the five senses? Are you likely to ignore it, or do you trust it? I ask you to start examining your spiritual senses, as they are the spark of Divine consciousness communicating with you. Trust them.

Trust is like a mirror, you can fix it if it’s broken, but you can still see the crack. — Lady Gaga, singer, songwriter and actress.

Your Response to Building Trust In Seasons of Change Determines Destiney

How I responded to the question of trust determined my destiny.

At first, I didn’t respond well at all. I lost hope, living in chaos and trying to break through the walls of discouragement. Change surrounded me, like a bank of fog, so thick I couldn’t see if I was coming or going. Loss and death were the headliners in my life during my time of awakening.

Everything I knew changed in an instant. I was in the chrysalis phase, where nothing made sense. I didn’t know who I was, where I was going, or how I would get there. The only thing I knew was despair, hopelessness, and the unknowingness of it all.

Yes, it was terrifying, and yes, it was uber challenging. Complaining, fault-finding, blaming, and playing the victim didn’t change a darn thing.

I decided to step off the hamster wheel of life, as I had nothing to lose. Quieting the mind became a time of reckoning and questioning. I began to see how much this 7-year life tsunami was a result of me not trusting myself.

For my sake and my son’s, I began to take action.

Taking small steps was the dawn of a new morning practice. A time I spent reading spiritual texts, saying gratitude prayers, and taking long peaceful meditative dog walks. I would pray, meditate and journal daily. If I didn’t get an answer, I’d stay put; if I did, I’d take action.

When I took action based on a Divine message, things miraculously began to happen. People would show up. I’d get cooperation from the most unlikely places, and the women in my neighborhood started to gather around me, supporting me in ways that were beyond what I even knew I needed.

Taking inspired actions led by the spark of Divine consciousness ignited my spiritual senses helping me to build trust, and it gave me confidence, courage, and clarity to keep on going to embrace this season of enormous change. I came to acknowledge that I’m held in the arms of Divine consciousness.

A great awakening unfolded right before my eyes. It can, for you too.

The career personality typing model of the 1950s is fine. Yet, as we awaken to our spiritual needs, we must use the gifts of a fearless, pure, and healthy childlike personality to support our spiritual Self.
