How much faith do we really have?
How does lack of faith affect us?
How do we restore it?
The Presence of Light talk that was not to be heard…
I Am going to post this as a written testimony to having Faith and not just giving lip service to it.
As I signed on to Facebook live and began my 30 minute weekly talk on Humanity Healing, I was without a clue that my microphone was not functioning although I did notice that the chat box on the right of my screen was not working, so that I could not receive any comments.
That never causes alarm for me as it happens regularly and so I dove into the Higher Dimension of myself and let it all roll with great faith that all was in order. Only to find out as I signed off that people were trying to tell me throughout the broadcast and I was completely oblivious to it all.
With that intro I will now share my notes for the show which I actually did write as reminders to keep me focused
I have to thank the Archangel Oracle.com for this topic and Dee for her posting of the card Faith, from the Return Of Spirit Oracle Card deck, by Cheryl Lee Harnish
As I read the post (hyperlink above) I copied several sentences which resonated with me.
…”It is easy to have faith when everything is running smoothly, but what about when it does not go as planned? It is hard to remain strong in faith when nothing seems to be going as you had hoped.
Faith is about trusting Spirit, especially in those times when everything seems as though it is going wrong.
Being human means our point of view is limited and our understanding is skewed and one sided.
From the view point of the Universe, everything is ins Divine and perfect order.
Everything is exactly how it should be and needs to be, to help you move to your rightful place on your path.
Do not pull back your energy and trust because things are not working out the way you thought they would.
Breathe, and trust what is. Allow yourself to let go, even if only a little at first, of any expectations you have.
This card is about restoring faith, but not just in Spirit. It is about restoring your faith in yourself, in your abilities, in your choices, and in your heart. It is about restoring your faith in your fellow and mankind as a whole. Some of the human experiences you have had have damaged your trust and faith. Spirit is holding out their hand to you, but it is up to you to find the faith within and to take hold of it, regardless of whether you do or not, Spirit is by your side every step of the way.”…

Thus began my own writing…
Our Faith is always being tested because it is based in belief.
Belief is the Acceptance that something is true or really exists.
Acceptance has several meanings…
An agreement to receive or agree to something
An exercise of power during an exchange
A surrender as a response rather than a resistance to what is occurring in our lives in any given moment.
Each of us are tested daily as to how we are interpreting our Faith yet we may not think of it in that manner.
Lately in the world around us there are many things which are constantly attacking our relationship to Faith and diminishing our abilities to think rationally or perform acts of compassion. Not only for others but ourselves.
It creates energies within us which sound like depression and sometimes feels like it but… it is not. It is only a small part of our adjusting to a deeper connection to the Truth within us.
Since my messages usually stem from my own experiences I will share that this past week was extremely challenging in regards to my sense of purpose, self-acceptance and how my journey has any valid meaning.
A recent situation triggered all of this self-reflection in which expectations of me were not manifested in another person, who desired to speak with me regarding their personal issues. The confusion in our texting became the triggering of an uncomfortable feeling as to my engaging in a phone conversation with this person.
I was left with this self-reflective feeling of “How did I create this?” and although I exchanged my phone number there was still some energetic resistance which I could not ignore and the phone call was never done.
Having faith and trusting our intuition that somehow there is a teaching for us to experience and as well for the other person is sometimes not a pleasant ordeal.
However the ability to say No and understand, that our speaking was not in the best interest for either of us, was led by Faith not judgment.
This is a great lesson for us all as we are each seeking to find out who we truly are in this world of increasing awareness of falsity.
If nothing else is occurring right now the lies and fake news of the past are literally forcing an awakening of many humans.
Before the talk show I pulled these 2 cards together from an old box of “A Course In Miracles” Cards which are always on my desk.
They came out together and as you can see the message of Faith comes through.
When you truly surrender to not trying to figure it all out but keep trusting that you are always connected to something much more powerful than yourself.
The Guidance always comes through.
As I wrap this up… I offer you all the energies of this amazing Herkimer Diamond Bridge Crystal to assist you in whatever way you feel called.
Here also are some affirmations from The Sacred Space Mediation Card Intuition
by Elinor Von Linden
I follow my intuition, knowing the insight I receive provides me with security and love.
Trust and follow my inner knowledge.
I recognize the loving guidance I hear within my heart, as it guides me in wonderful ways.
I am aware of my inner power and I intend to live with peace and love.
As I was told by the person who so wanted to speak to me that I’m no Guru I said thank you and know in my heart that each of us are merely a mirror for each other.
We are both teachers as well as students.
Please remember that Faith is strengthened by willingness and that each of us are here to lift and support each other by sharing Peace, Light and Love… it is really so simple when we let it all go and have Faith.
