In this abundance accelerator challenge, we are going to use the immense transformative power of the lens of love explored in The Abundance Game course and apply it to one of the core pillars of abundance — trust.
This challenge involves discernment as well as unblocked self-expression, making it a very powerful abundance accelerator.
Abundance Accelerator Challenge: Broken Trust & The Lens Of Love
- Think of a time when trust was betrayed. This can be an incident or relationship where your trust was betrayed, or someone betrayed your trust.
- Over the next two weeks, use the abundance-accelerating tool of detachment explored in The Abundance Game course to look at the event.
- On a piece of paper or in your Abundance Journal, create two columns: one for the person who broke trust, and one for the person whose trust was broken.
- Whichever column you fall into depending on the role you played in this event, write down how you felt before the trust was broken, during, and after trust was broken.
- In the same column, write down why the trust was broken.
- Below this, write down any judgements on yourself or the other person as a result of this broken trust.
- Look at the event from the perspective of your future self, 10 years from now. Apply the lens of love to understand, with an attitude of compassion, why the trust was really broken. It is likely to be an emotion like fear, anger, and so on — or a combination of emotions.
- Now, do the same for the other column, paying attention to how you think they contributed to the breaking of trust and why.
- For the next two weeks, practice discernment. Revisit this column every three days. You may find it helpful to practice contemplative mindfulness and listen to the ho’oponopono meditation as you work through this event.
- After the two weeks are up, write a letter (paper or digital) to the person involved, in which you will take ownership for your role in this event — whether you were the one who broke trust or not, acknowledge why the other person played the role they did in this incident, and lastly, you will offer and ask for forgiveness from yourself and the other person. If you have cut off ties from this person, you can keep this letter. Otherwise, send this letter to the person who was involved in this incident — whether you have previously reconciled or not.
Record your thoughts and feelings in your Abundance Journal as you work through this challenge.
