It usually takes me awhile to get to know someone and feel comfortable with them. When I get to the point where I trust them, I usually share thoughts and information with them that I'd ordinarily keep to myself. When I start doing that, people know I trust them because some of my thoughts are pretty unusual.
Usually when I trust someone, I let them come into my art studio. It is a very special and mostly private space for me, and I only allow positive energy to enter it.

When I trust someone, I'll let them help me if they offer assistance if I'm in trouble. I'm a pretty guarded person when it comes to trusting people, so letting them help me is a way of "letting them in" and showing trust.
I usually show trust by gifting someone something that has sentimental meaning to me. For example, a scarf from my deceased mother's scarf collection. I wear her scarves all the time. When I give one of her scarves to someone I trust, they understand that I know they will take good care of it. And hopefully wear it in good health and high spirits.

If I give someone my car keys, and let them borrow my car, that is the best way for me to show them that I trust them. I treat my car like a child. She even has a name. It is Alma, which is the Spanish word for soul.
