Trust and Gratitude transforms my life

The process of letting go and allowing the Divine to work in my life has been a difficult one.
I used to feel I had to be in control or things would not be done correctly.
I was constantly trying to 'figure out' how my life needed to be.  I was trying to control all the outcomes.

Of course, I often felt overwhelmed.  And why not?  Being in control is an overwhelming job.  For us humans anyway.

God has given us a great gift.  The gift of free will.  God will never force us to believe, think or act in a certain way.  We have the free will to choose what we think, what we believe, the action we will take.

Where we have the trouble is with the results of our thoughts, beliefs and actions.

I have learned when I let go of trying to be in control, I am in a state of trust.  I trust God loves me.
I trust God is love, forgiveness, compassion and light.  I trust this is what God wants for my life.

For a long time, I did not know how to let go and trust.  I did not know how to let go and allow God to work in my life.  And this is what I have learned.


Gratitude for no matter what happens in my life.  If it is wonderful or if it is not so wonderful.
If it is dream come true or a huge blockage.
I stay in gratitude.
Gratitude opens my heart.  Gratitude keeps me from complaining.  Gratitude keeps me in that place of trust…trust that God truly loves me.

Please allow me to share a practice I do to help develop my trust.

Sit up straight.  Close your eyes.  Place both hands over the lower abdomen. Visualize a light ball in your lower abdomen.  The light ball is radiating a beautiful light filled with love, forgiveness, compassion and light.
Connect with your heart.
Dear the soul of my heart,
I love you. Please help me to connect very deeply with you.  Help me to open my heart further.  Help me to understand deep gratitude and trust.

Dear Divine,
I love you. 
I am so grateful for every thing in my life.
I know you love me.  I know you want what is best for my soul's journey.
I trust you. I completely trust you.
My gratitude for you is beyond words.

Thank you for your great love.  Thank you for listening.  Thank you for helping me to transform my life.

Than chant:
I am so grateful to the Divine.  I completely trust the Divine.  

Chant for as long as you can.  Completely focus.  Feel the love and light, forgiveness and compassion filling every part of your being.

Remain in the trust.  Remain in the gratitude.
Watch you life transform.


  1. This is so beautiful Master Ellen, thank you so much. I will use this beautiful prayer to the Divine and the chant as I feel it is perfect for me. When we are going through purification it is sometimes hard to remember that the Divine wants only the best for us. Thank you. I also struggle with Trusting and letting go of control of my life.

  2. Thank you so much, Master Ellen for the teaching. I am so grateful and appreciative that I can chant Divine Gratitude and Divine Trust especially when I feel confused. I will include in my daily practice with Divine love, forgiveness, compassion and light. LY LY LY CB CB CB
