The Return of Trust

by Anne Vivian


“You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don’t trust enough.” -Dr. Frank Crane, Presbyterian minister

Trust is a mysterious thing, isn’t it? We can over-trust and under-trust. This month, an angel (Archangel Zadkiel to be exact) has been teaching me to understand the relationship between hope and trust. After a recent radio show in which I channeled his angelic message about this topic, I looked up the word hope in the dictionary,* and one of the archaic definitions is “a feeling of trust”. It seems one does connect with the other. If we can increase our trust, will we feel more hopeful and uplifted?

At first, when I thought about it, it seemed to me hope is more time-bound, and trust is more grounded in present moment. After I reflected more, however, I can see how they both have a certain connotation related to not knowing what will happen as time goes on. This involves very often having a certain faith, outlook, or expectation the future will unfold in such a way as to be in alignment with one’s desire. I think of the Fool card in the Tarot as an elaboration of this idea. A man stands poised to step off a cliff into the unknown. One must have a certain amount of courage to trust and to hope, because it involves putting ourselves in a vulnerable position. What if I’m wrong? What if I am betrayed? What if things don’t work out?

The key, in my opinion, is to put our trust and hope in the eternal dimension, and this helps us know how and whom to trust in the time-bound dimension. By placing your trust in that which transcends time - your Higher Self, that still small voice, your Higher Power, God/Goddess, Spirit – you will have the most stable guarantee all the resources, support, guidance and miracles needed to move those mountains will be provided. People, circumstances, and material objects may come and go, rise and fall, but the everlasting Spirit is behind all the cycles and changes.
