Trust – a heart-based living approach

Trust is a word often used, and we thought we’d have a conversation around how we see it in terms of a heart based living approach. 
As trust often revolves around what we believe, it becomes clear how we can gain or lose trust, as our many life experiences has us all with varied beliefs in a broad range of areas
So what is trust? Nigel and Tricia have a natural flowing conversation around the topic and it is interesting where it ends up

Sapphire (poetic expression)

It was wonderful to find out more about sapphires. That’s the beauty of these sessions, it can path the way to learn things we may not otherwise have researched. Of course it also takes us somewhere, and even brings up things in our subconscious that say a little about us and the way we see the world. What do you know about ‘sapphires’? I learnt a lot about what they symbolise. I loved the discussion around how gems are extracted and the role they play in defining status in many instances.

William’s Wardrobe

Sometimes you come across people who are having a significant impact on those around them. Catherine and Hazel from William’s Wardrobe, are two such people. We were grateful to have spent a night with Catherine, who was looking for people to help. People who most of us choose to ignore, drive passed and do not want to see.‘Hi we’re from Williams wardrobe, have you eaten tonight, do you need any clothing or blankets,’ she would say.And that got things started…

Blind (poetic expression)

It was on ANZAC day that we came together with our expression about the word ‘blind’. Some would see the connection between the two, while it wasn’t intended. For our ANZAC soldiers landing at the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey, on that fateful day in 1915, in a way were ‘blind sided’ by the miscalculations in the planning, that lead many soldiers to their deaths.

Heart-based kindness versus niceness

In life, we are regularly caught up in systems that are meant to be helpful however often lack the flexibility and capability to accommodate unique and specific needs. 
Help is often provided with politeness, doing things with a smile, adhering to protocols however the systems themselves often lack a human approach. 
People are looking to be truly heard and understood,  as often life issues are more complex, not straight forward.
