Unconditional Trust & Mother- Infant bond

Recently I thought: How easy would life be if we could always have unconditional trust in it. If we could just rely on our intuition & natural instinct to deal with the big issues in our lives and leave the mind to figure out our daily tasks. Being less concerned in trying to understand everything that happens and just trusting that everything will work out for the best.

I would love to live more with the believe that everything is taken care for. That I can trust in things to be exactly how they are. But I often notice how my analytical mind is trying to take control. I read about a recent neuroscience study about what happens in our bodies when we trust. The research found that we produce oxytocin any time that we have trust in life, ourselves or other people.  The same hormone which is released as a mum when we breastfeed our baby. If we trust, we can build a bond. 

It is oxytocin that triggers the bond between a mother and an infant, and it may also play a role in recognition, sexual arousal, trust and anxiety. Some research shows that the hormone may affect addiction and stress as well.

It is amazing. Lets practice being more trusting and build those bonds!

Love & Trust
