It’s such a wonderful feeling when we have trust in the Divine and hope for the future. It brings light into our lives and makes us feel secure and held by a higher power. It brightens our day, making us feel lighter, happier, and peaceful.
When you cultivate a sense of trust and hope for the future, you begin to realize how you’re a part of a greater universe. You come to know, truly know deep down inside, that you’re part of the Divine. You have faith.
In this state of faith, you know that you’re whole and that you’re love. You trust that you have everything you need to manifest your soul’s plan and to be an active part of creating good in the world. You know that there is good in the world.
"Trust that your soul has a plan, and even if you can't see it completely, know that everything will unfold as it is meant to." — Deepak Chopra
You may experience pain and challenge and you may see this in others who are suffering too. But you come to find the meaning in these difficulties, as you and others around you learn and transform this suffering. You gain wisdom.
You begin to have a greater sense of meaning and purpose in life and commit to moving forward on your path in life.

How do we cultivate trust in the Divine and hope for the future, especially in moments when it isn’t easy?
Here are 3 ways to cultivate a sense of hope and trust that builds a strong foundation to support you in darker moments.
1. Be Grateful - By focusing on what’s good in your life and being grateful for it every day, you send your energy there. You cultivate a sense of abundance and happiness and open a doorway to the Divine Source
2. Practice Positivity – Negativity is everywhere and can negatively affect you more than you may realize. Distance yourself from negativity. Take responsibility for your own thoughts and strive to see the good in a situation. When you have a positive outlook on life, you see obstacles as opportunities for growth and are able to experience joy for others’ good fortune.
3. Celebrate – Take time to celebrate a moment of accomplishment and meaning in your life. Even a small one. Maybe you finished that project that you have been working on for many weeks. Maybe a loved one was accepted into a desired course of study. Or a friend started that new business venture. Take a moment to honor and celebrate this moment of excitement and joy, bringing light into your life.
Take time to cultivate trust in the Divine and a sense of hope in your life today. Then in those inevitable times of darkness, you’ll be able to tap into this wellspring of strength.
“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
