THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
"What Does Faith See in You?"
I was talking to an elder lady and I said, "I was worried," she cut me off quickly and said, "No baby we don't worry, we have faith." That moment changed my life forever...
Everything is energy and energy is true.
You cannot lie about it,
you cannot hide it,
because energy knows you.
I came up with this topic awhile back and I felt like today was most appropriate for writing about it. You can't see faith, but faith can surely see you. Faith sees you not having faith and it sees when you do. The crazy part about faith is that it will still come through with your manifestations even when you didn't have faith in faith. Faith knows if you have faith. Faith can see when your faith is weak.
I concentrate on faith because it is something that we have to practice like everything else in order to master it. Master your faith... hmmm. Have you mastered your faith?
I set my intentions to be aware of where my faith is. Is my faith soaring high, flying with the birds, going wherever I want to go? Or is my faith low and stuck in the mud, worried about where I might go? I aim to be aware of the strength of my faith. And as thoughts come through my mind, I recognized that some of the thoughts that try and squeeze through are based on fear instead of faith. Being aware is priceless because you catch toxic thoughts and feelings that try and control you. You know when you are stepping out of alignment with your true nature and that is a nature of love, especially love for one’s self. When thoughts of fear and lack try to infiltrate my mind, I say, "no, this is a trick, I am not falling for it." I begin self-talking and repeating uplifting affirmations. These low thoughts try to attack you when you're going to bed at night, just as you are falling asleep. I never want to waste the theta period that we have access to right before going to sleep, so if there are some doubtful and egotistical thoughts coming to me at that time, I kick them out and go straight into my visualizations of what I want to be and do.
"We think in secret and it comes to pass, our environment is but our a looking glass." James Allen, As a Man Thinketh.
It is said in scriptures that we only need the faith of a tiny mustard seed to move mountains in our life. Faith pays us according to our faith. When we have faith, faith makes the journey easier for us too. It takes too much energy to be afraid. It takes an enormous amount of energy to worry. The very thing that we place our attention on, grows, and we get more of it. If we place our attention on what we lack, we are sure to create more lack. When we place our faith in what we don't want, we are sure to receive more of what we don't want. We may not realize that it’s what we're doing, but we are creating our worlds with every single thought and feeling, nothing gets by.
When we are afraid, more things come to us to be afraid about. We start seeing more things showing up in our experiences that scare us. We start going down a scary path. And then we have these scary stories to tell to people, and the person is like, "wow, how'd that happen to you?"
If we feel that it won't happen for us, then it won't happen for us. If we don't take a step forward, take chances, we will remain in the same place. When we are afraid to move forward, stepping out on faith, faith can see that. Faith says, "well I know you're scared, so you're not ready for what the Universe has for you." Faith can see when you want it bad enough to believe it, even though you can't see it.
I would bet that every time you lie down to go to sleep at night, you have faith that you will wake up in the morning. And not only do you have the faith that you will wake up in the morning, but you have faith that other people that you know and love will wake up too. That's not something that someone has to convince you of. You believe that you will wake up because you speak in terms of tomorrow, you worry about what is going to happen in the future, because you have faith that you will be here to see it.
We have faith in things that we do repetitively. We even have faith in things that we could really have less faith in, like our jobs. We can use that faith somewhere else. Whenever we worry about something going wrong or about us not having enough, we are faithing backwards. We are using this golden Divine tool, and misusing it. I have done it before, I had faith that things were going to go down in my life and they did. I gave faith to worrying about what was going to happen to me and the most unfortunate things began to happen to me. I was using faith the wrong way. Oh and I was strong in my faith about what was going to go wrong, and about what I would lose, what would happen to me.
I told myself that if I could use faith upside down, then I could use faith right side up. Faith wants us to use it. Faith wants us to believe in it. Faith is rooting for us, wanting us to believe in faith, in our manifestations. Faith will wait on us, to believe in ourselves. Faith will show us signs that it is there for us, riding with us. The more faith we have, the stronger we become. Faith shows us that when we believe, things just begin to fall into place in our lives. Faith wants us to know that it has us covered. Faith wants us to realize that it was sent by God for us, to aid us, and assist us in our journey.
Because what can you do without faith? You may not have faith in the right things, but you still have faith in something. Faith knows what you're facing and faith still wants you to have faith. Faith wants you to have faith in you. Faith wants you to have faith in the process. Faith will show up and show you every time. You can depend on faith if you use it. I have a simple use for faith that everything is going to work out for me. I believe that and I feel it with my entire being. It doesn't matter what you tell me, what an expert says, what a doctor says, I believe in faith. I don't care if my life looks to be falling apart, I have faith that everything works out for the good of them. I am one of the good of them. I know my heart, and many things can be said about me, but I will never believe that I don't have a good heart. I know my intentions and they are ALWAYS good.
I believe in the laws on the Universe. I believe that if you do something dirty to someone, it will come back to you triple fold. I have witnessed this happen in my life from people who have done deceitful things to me, and I did nothing. I let go and I let God handle it. I have faith in God. I have faith that God protects me, and has my back. I have faith that God can see when someone is trying to do something to bring harm into my life, and I have faith that God will take care of them. I don't have to quickly react or even respond, because I have a STRONG faith that God will handle all the responses for me. Everything comes full circle.
You will be moving along in life, not focused on what happened, you will have cut your energetic cords from it, and then here comes their karma. You did nothing, you just had faith that the Universe would take care of you. As our children come and go, we must have faith that they will be safe and protected. If we are constantly worrying that something unfortunate is going to happen to them, we are strongly manifesting it to happen. When we have faith that they are under Divine protection, we don't worry.
Worrying has got to be the worst habit that one could ever develop.
It takes practice to stop worrying, and start using faith. That is what faith is here for, to see if we believe in the Divine plan. I have come out of some sticky situations merely on using my faith. My faith got stronger as I could see that it worked. A turn of events can happen in the most dooming looking situations when we have faith. Even if the thing that you wanted to work out didn't go your way, let things play out, and wait, something better will come to you. It is impossible to please God without faith. For he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that the is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6.
Once you make the decision that you are going to act in faith, the Universe comes together with you to make magical things happen. Do you believe in you? Do you believe that you will be with the love of your life? Do you feel like you deserve a healthy loving relationship? Do you feel like you deserve to be wealthy? Do you feel like you deserve to be healthy? I ask myself these things, and I deeply listen to my soul to see if I really feel like I deserve all the wonderful things that this life experience has to offer me. What do I settle for? Whatever I settle for must be what I feel like I deserve. Do I settle for lowly things because I feel like I don't deserve higher? Do I settle for good enough because I don't feel like I deserve what I truly want?
All of these questions I write out and then answer them, making it more challenging because I ask myself why do I feel like I deserve these things. Whenever you do that, you are forced to say the most beautifulest things about yourself. You deserve the best that life has to give because it is your Divine birthright. You didn't come here for struggle and strife. You didn't come here to take less than what you deserve. You came here to thrive and enjoy an adventurous magical time. You came here to enjoy your life.
Faith can see what you're doing. I know that we cannot see faith, and that is the whole purpose of it. Can we let go and believe that the Universe is going to deliver for us? My grandmother used to have us sing a song at church as we stepped in unison, "One step, and he will do the rest, if I make, one step, I know that he will do the rest." My cousin Cookie led the vocals on that song. I always enjoyed that song, because it strengthened my faith every time I sung it. I felt it in my spirit that all I had to do was have the faith to take one step forward, and God would do the rest. God was testing my faith, do I really believe what I say I believe?
You never know how much faith you're truly capable of having, until you're faced with using it.
What does faith see when faith sees you?
