I was inspired to write this because of a comment that Eli, Coach Daddy, wrote to me about how crucial it is to have faith.
Just what is faith?
Faith is believing that even when life looks very bleak and hard, and it’s doing its best to squash me, things will work out.
Faith is believing that when things fall apart, it’s because something better wants to come into my life, and room has to be made for it.
Faith is believing that pain is temporary. It won’t last forever.
Faith is believing that emotions like anger, fear, and sadness are temporary. They too, shall pass.
Faith is believing that I can change my situation if I want to.
Faith is believing that I am not a victim of circumstances or of life.
Faith is believing that I can handle whatever comes along.
Faith is holding a vision with extreme conviction until it manifests.
Faith is believing that even in death, we continue on.
The difference between faith and what I call knowing, is having an experience that rings in all of my cells. I might believe something with all of my heart, but not know for certain that it’s true. But after having certain experiences, I know some things are true (for me).
I know that life is often a paradox.
I know that chronic, incurable disease can be healed.
I know that all physical pain can disappear in a moment.
I know what it’s like to connect with my higher self.
I know that I planned to experience certain challenges in my life.
I know that I’ve had several lives before this one (at least, to my brain they appear to be prior in time).
I know what it’s like to connect directly with God.
I know that my essence is the energy of light.
And I know that my essence is pure, unconditional, nonjudgmental, love.
In the absence of knowing, ya gotta have faith. It sure makes life easier to swallow sometimes.
