Have Faith

on October 31, 2012

FAITH is one of those clear cut things which is either turned on or not.  The more you use it the stronger it becomes.  It is sort of like a muscle in this respect.  You may have heard the cliché about Love and the heart being a muscle, the more you use it the stronger and better you become at Love.  Well Faith falls in the same category.

Like Love you cannot lose Faith, you simply fail to use it.  It comes with the package!  Whether you use it or not is up to you.  Take breathing for instance.  You breathe whether you think about it or not and even if you try to hold your breath eventually you will breath.  Faith is like this too.  When you least expect it, it shows up in your life!

So just what is Faith?  Dictionary.com describes it as “confidence or trust in a person or thing, belief that is not based on proof.”  Faith is metaphysical and exists like a piece of fabric interwoven throughout all existence.  The best way to prove it to yourself is through getting in touch with your feelings.  Have you ever just known something would happen and it did?  That feeling of knowing is Faith.  Have Faith in your knowing!

Faith can be as simple as knowing the sun will rise in the morning or as complex as knowing your sister will be there for you when you need her.  When others are mixed into the equation things get complicated, but this does not mean they are less clear.  Let’s just say there is more room for doubt.  So how does one practice Faith?

It is as simple as breathing.  Make the choice consciously to have Faith.  Ask the Great Spirit to help you in this quest and stay alert to the miracles which occur every day.  Faith is built by awareness.  You may have more Faith than you realize!

First and foremost have Faith that all is well.  Write down a list of things you have Faith in and focus on the Truth of it all.  The sun rose this morning, I am still breathing, I have clothes on my back and clean water to drink…build from there.  Faith is a gift you can give away!

Have Faith in your fellow man; trust them to keep their word, to be honest in their actions, and to be there for you when you need them.  Practicing this yourself will guarantee results because what you give, you receive.

Any Spiritual practice takes time and effort, and with some conscious work Faith will be as automatic as breathing!
