How many times have you scratched your head wondering why you can’t seem to change your life?
Why is it that you continue the grind everyday without true inner peace, and happiness?
Ingredient 3: Faith
I never resonated with the word “faith” growing up. When something would trouble me in my youth the pastor would tell me to have faith, with no additional instruction, or inclination as to what faith was. My question was: “Well how can I have faith when I don’t know what it is.” Faith seemed like such a flowery illusive word to me. “To have” generally means to possess, again how can you posses something that you can’t hold, visualize, or imagine. So “faith” was a fluffy otherworldly word to me.
But I did not give up I kept asking what is faith and what does that look like. I never received a satisfactory answer. About the closest I ever heard was faith is the hope for things yet unseen. Hope, no surety, just hope. Well that did not really resonate for me either. It felt kinda painful – an unsure path ~ A may be it will and maybe it wont feeling. Ugh!
It was not until a few years ago when a trusted mentor finally gave me an answer that I could identify with: “Faith is Not Fear.” This made total and complete sense.
For when we are in fear, then nothing seems possible accept more fear. It feels unsure, unsteady, shifty. It blocks our Divine nature. Faith then is holding the vibration of our Divine nature. Knowing that we are a part of SPIRIT light and SPIRIT nature.
I asked SPIRIT about this and this is what was revealed to me. There are two dominate energies in this One Universe that govern all other emotion. One is fear, and the other is Love. So Faith is Not Fear. Faith is the Divine loving energy flowing at its highest vibration.
It is interesting to note what is written in the Canonized Version of the Bible as recounted in the book of Mathew, Jesus during his walk on this planet encounters many who are in dis ease, he is recorded as instructing people that by their faith they will be healed. That tells us the the vibration of fear lowers our ability to hold a state of wellness. In Mathew 15:28 Jesus is recorded as having said: ““O woman, your faith is great; it shall be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed at once.” What an amazing power.
As you learn and grow and seek the truth, ask yourself are you willing to change? How does that look in your day to day life? Return tomorrow for the ingredient of change.
