More than ever we need to have faith in something greater than what we can see with our own two eyes. It is so easy to get caught up in the pain of our illness or the fear of what is going on in the world and not be able to see the bigger picture.

Faith is built upon belief, love, acceptance and trust. Faith is the strongest belief that we can have and it is the energy and vibration that connects and brings us into oneness with ourselves, others and spirit. Faith can feel like it comes and goes at times in our life. The truth is that it is never really gone, it only needs to be rekindled with love, trust, patience, positive thought, prayer and meditation.

Think about the times in your life when you felt a strong faith, a strong knowing and trust in yourself, your life, your spiritual beliefs and your future. It is important to remember that it is always present, even when we cannot feel it. You can always tap into it by being still, staying centered and releasing old fears, doubts and limitations from your mind. Our thoughts are so powerful. Choose positive thoughts. Remember on a daily basis to tune into that deep spiritual, positive and loving connection that is within you and that is who you truly are!

What do we experience when we are not in touch with our faith? Those have been the times for me when I felt the most fearful, alone, depressed and disconnected from myself and from Spirit/God. Fear can feel all consuming and at times like we are paralyzed. It is important to remember that fear is only a thought in our minds and it is said to be "False Evidence Appearing Real".

Dr. Ernest Holmes says in the Science of Mind, "We become conscious of darkness only when we are without FAITH. For faith is ever the light of our day and the light on our way, making that way clearly visible to us, even when to all others it may be beset with obstacles and the ongoing rough". Faith takes awareness and a deep trust to keep us in touch with our higher self- connection and to keep growing spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. Having faith helps us to get though rough times, changes and to flow with life much easier.

"When you have come to the edge of all the light you know and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, Faith is knowing two things will happen. You will find something solid to stand on and you will learn how to fly"

Take time every day to be still and to just be with yourself without having to "DO" anything. In this stillness we can get more in touch with our authentic self and our faith. The more we can create peace inside, the more we can help others to do the same. Be the presence you want to see in the world.
