Once you’ve found a good fact, turn the recognition of it into an embodied experience. Know that the fact is really true; give yourself a sense of conviction about it and trust in it.
(Resilient; Rick Hanson)

I wonder whether it's possible to read it in either of the two following ways:

1) Know that the fact is really true; give yourself a sense of conviction about it and trust in it.

2) Know that the fact is really true; give yourself a sense of conviction about it and [a sense of] trust in it.

Thanks.

    It means the first. To give yourself a sense of conviction about something is just a less direct way of saying believe in it.
