What is Faith?
What does it mean to have faith? This word is often associated with some type of religious belief and those of you who have chosen not to follow a particular religion may have also let go of connecting to any form of faith.
Faith is not about believing in the teachings of a particular religion.
Faith is about believing in the Truth, the real Truth; not what you have come to believe about Truth. You see, the real truth is found within you; in the depths of your heart and soul. It is not found outside of yourself where most of you look for it.
Perhaps you do not have faith that you will ever be fully happy or fulfilled. Perhaps you’ve lost faith in your ability to create the wealth you desire. Maybe you’ve lost faith in the possibility of being in love and finding your soul mate. If your health is failing, you may have lost faith in your body’s ability to heal itself. No matter what it is that you no longer feel is possible, we are here to tell you that ANYTHING is possible if you have faith and you believe this to be true.
Have faith in your Self; your Higher Self. Have faith that everything you seek is available to you. It is much easier to have faith when you have personal experiences that connect you to your true essence. If you have not yet had such an experience, we invite you to take time to look within you and ask your spiritual guides to help you increase your faith in whatever area of your life this is lacking.
Ask for assistance from your Higher Power, God, the Universe, Source energy; it does not matter what you call it. What is important is for you to call upon it. For this energy of love is all around you at all times, waiting to be of service to you but you must ask. This is the law of free Will. This support cannot interfere with your free Will and unless you ask, you will not receive. Have faith that if you ask for help, you will receive it.
As you open up to the power of Faith, it will increase. The more you draw upon your faith, the stronger it will be.
I grew up within the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Having faith in God was something I was taught at a very early age and even though I didn’t always believe or accept all the teachings of the church, I always had a connection to who I called, “God.” Also, as a result of my upbringing, I felt a deep connection with Jesus. I often called upon God and Jesus to help me through difficult and challenging times and I did receive this help.
Of course, there were times in my life, as I struggled to make sense of what was going on around me, when I questioned the existence of God. I lost faith from time to time when things didn’t seem to be working out for me as I had hoped and yet, I always came back to my inner knowing that there really is a Higher Power that isn’t outside of me, but within me.
Even though I left the Catholic Church many years ago and I’m not part of any organized religion, my faith is stronger today than it ever has been, for I KNOW without doubt that God, Source, Universal Energy or Power, does exist and I also know that it doesn’t matter what we call it because it’s the same energy of Love. I also believe that we all have many angels, guides and other Spiritual Beings eager to assist us at any time and for any reason. I’ve had some profound experiences throughout my life that have shown me this Truth and for this, I am eternally grateful.
