Faith is the water and sunlight that transforms the seeds of intention into realized form.
Everything that exists was once but a thought. Laptops, smart phones, flat-panel TVs, you name it. They were once considered only science fiction or fantasy, and much of what was once thought of as impossible is indeed a reality today! Not long ago, I stumbled across a video featuring “The Human Spiderman,” a man who climbs mountain walls and skyscrapers using only his bare hands! Another gentleman set a new skydiving record by diving from space at 24.2 miles above ground and reaching speeds of 525 miles per hour! Morris Goodman, “The Miracle Man,” sustained such prolific injuries after a plane crash that he was told he would never be able to do more than blink his eyes. He now makes his living traveling the world (walking and talking) as a motivational speaker!
More and more stories like these are cropping up every year and with the (also once impossible dream) of the Internet, we now have access to volumes of stories of positive life transformations. The common denominator is this: Every invention, intention, life transformation, new record, great love story, miraculous healing experience, etc., was once only a thought that was simply nourished, nurtured, and brought to fruition by the awesome power of Faith.
Faith is the water and sunlight that transforms the seeds of intention into realized form. Faith brings thought to life!
Faith and the Ultimate Event Planner
Not long ago I was in the car and I heard the song “Faith” by the late George Michael. Granted, the context of the song differs from the big picture of Faith, but when I listened close, it dawned on me that this fun, bouncy tune actually contained a lot more wisdom than what I initially believed. Even though something may look inviting on the surface, it’s good to wait until it (or something else) feels right or is in alignment with what you truly want.
Take a moment right now to recall an experience when the ideal thing came into your life at the ideal time. When we remember just how well things can flow when we allow The Ultimate Event Planner (Source/God/The Universe) to handle the details, there’s just no reason to ever settle for anything less!
We’ve all had our moments when we think we need to micromanage, but have you noticed that this is the very thing that slows everything down and makes for anything but enjoying the journey? I can only speak for myself, but every time I follow the call of joy and inspired action, rather than forcing things into place to fit my timeline, I’m amazed by the “fabulousity” that transpires. I think it’s fair to say that the energy and intelligence that created everything that exists, along with an ever-expanding universe, knows a thing or two about manifestation.
Faith is a Habit
OK, so all manifestations were first only thoughts, lots of people have allowed amazing things to happen in their lives, and the Ultimate Event Planner is on the job. This is all well and good, but why does it seem like some people have an easier time working with this Faith thing than others? Is it because they’re lucky or simply a chosen one? I once wondered this very thing myself, but later discovered that just like anything else, having and maintaining Faith is cultivating a habit of thought and, with a little practice, every one of us can embody an attitude of Faith if we choose to do so!
Here are some Allowing Power Tools™ you can use to activate the awesome Power of Faith in your life:
Affirm Faith. Start with the big picture and remember your part in it! Start and end your day by affirming what you know in your heart. Read and let yourself “sit” with the feeling of these statements:
We live in an ABUNDANT and INFINITELY CREATIVE Universe where ALL things are possible. I am a part of this Universe, therefore I live in an ABUNDANT and INFINITELY CREATIVE Universe where ALL things are possible.
The more we focus on thoughts and ideas that empower us by remembering that there is a bigger picture of which we are also a part, the more we open ourselves up to the infinite possibilities that surround us!
Cultivate Faith: Replay the “Trust Tapes.” Fan the fires of Faith by revisiting your own evidence of success. On a daily basis, or as needed, revisit past experiences when you really wanted something and had no clue how it would all go down, but then it did go down just right!
The more you remind yourself that things can and do work out, even when they once seemed insurmountable or impossible, the more you increase your belief in what is possible—with the added benefit of getting to feel good now!
Feeling good consistently and believing that something can be true for you is the magic formula.
The Bottom Line on the Power of Faith
No matter where you may be in your journey, the fact that you are dedicating the time to read this means that you have already set very powerful wheels in motion. Love and guidance are all around you all the time. The Power of Faith simply gives you the eyes to see, the ears to hear, and the heart to feel the love and joy that has always been your birthright, for this is the very stuff that all fabulous intentions and solutions are made of! Joy to the world, baby!
Wishing you a magical holiday season.
