This is a series of lessons that is intended to cover many of the aspects of Ascension.  These lessons will be taught by female Ascended Masters of various Orders.  Although all of these Masters are balanced in the male and female aspects of their personalities, these individuals have chosen to manifest female bodies during this time in the continuum of All That Is. Please join us for our weekly lessons.

The following lesson was given on August 8, 2007 by Sehaji Master Lady Senna:
Greetings!  I am Senna and today I'd like to speak to you about trust.
Trust is something that many people think is earned.  I must beg to differ.  To me, trust is something that is given first and not something that is earned by another.
I realize that some of you might disagree, and that is okay.  That is your experience.  However, it seems to me that if you insist on someone being trustworthy first, that you are setting yourself up for a lot of heartache.  Only you would be determining their trustworthiness and that might be as changeable as the weather.  If you were in a good mood, perhaps you would be more "forgiving" if someone didn't quite match up to your expectations or qualifications for "trustworthy", while on another day...a "bad" day...you might be less tolerant.
Of course, your perception of their trustworthiness has nothing to do with their real or actual trustworthiness.
Let me give a further example.  Let's say that a loving father of two children has been out of work for a month or so and it's his first week back on the job.  A few hours into his fourth day he gets a phone call and finds out that his wife has taken their youngest child to the Emergency Room.  There was an accident with a bicycle but no clear information was given about any details.  Does the man stay on the job, waiting for another call from his wife or a family member or does he leave his new job and head for the Emergency Room just in case the accident was life threatening?
Now, depending upon which person is forming the opinion, the loving father probably can't win in at least somebody's eyes.  Even though she knows they need the money, his wife might think him a thoughtless man if he doesn't come to the Emergency Room, after all their child is injured and perhaps badly injured. 
On the other hand, the foreman or manager on his new job has a deadline and needs all of the help he can get.  That's why he was hired in the first place.  Who is this guy who goes running off just because his kid fell off a bike? 
Is the father trustworthy?
What I'm saying to you is that almost everyone that you will ever meet is trustworthy in some form or another.  Almost everyone can be trusted to do what they think is best in any given situation.  That makes them trustworthy.
Now perhaps they won't do what you want them to do...what you think they  "should" do, but that doesn't make a person untrustworthy.  Do you see what I mean?
Therefore, it is my opinion that we must give the benefit of a doubt as to whether or not a person deserves your trust.
What is the worst thing that can happen if you believe what someone says?  You could die or have a bad accident, lose all of your money and go homeless.  Let's say that everyone would consider those things among the "worst" that could happen if you took bad advice or depended upon someone who let you down.
Now, let's take that a step further.  What if you were to die?  Do you think that you will die before your time, before you are truly ready as Soul to take your next major step by leaving this world?  No!  Don't you remember the stories you've read about someone living a huge plane crash that killed everyone else or a child falling from an eight story window and not even getting a bruise?  And what about someone who dies from a scare that most people would call minor and laugh off?  Wouldn't you say that their time had come to leave?
Next let's take the "bad accident" scenario.  So, you've had a bad accident and you end up in a hospital.  Perhaps you had been working too hard, going nowhere and hadn't been taking enough time for yourself to work on your spiritual life.  Some of you, it seems, need to be knocked down before you will even take a deep breath.  Perhaps your life will be changed by the accident.  Maybe you won't be able to walk and will be forced to create a different life for yourself. 
Whatever the outcome is for every scenario, even if you lost all of your money and are forced to go homeless, you as Soul chose that scenario.  You can't blame anyone else.  All they were doing when they said or did what they did that might have appeared untrustworthy to you, is that which they agreed to do, for you, to help you take your next, important spiritual step.
Do you see?  We are ALL interconnected.  There are no mistakes.  We are, each and everyone of us, used by others to help us accomplish that which as Soul we have chosen to do, to learn.  So, relax.  Trust a little more.
This is a test:
Q:  Who is trustworthy?          A:  Everyone and everything!
Q:  Who is not trustworthy?    A:  No one!
It is all a dance.  For a moment you will go left and I will go right.  The next moment I will go left and you will go right.  It is all a choreographed dance.
To look at it another way, everyone is where they should be for their next important step...for EACH next step.  There are no mistakes.  There ARE choices though.  You can choose not to participate, to refuse a next step, but if the urges are strong you are probably blocking your next growth opportunity.  But then, eventually the opportunity will come around again.  Nothing is lost forever.
Follow your instincts.  If you have a gut feeling that someone is not telling you the truth and you don't want to gamble on their knowledge or honesty, ask someone else or just follow your own inner guidance.  I highly recommend the latter.
So, the next time you get to wondering if someone is trustworthy or not, I hope you will reconsider what I have spoken of today.
I thank you for sharing your time with me today.  I am Senna and I bid you a wonderful day.

This may be shared freely as long as it remains in its entirety
and proper credit is given.  Thank you.
