Have you ever felt that is very hard to keep your faith? The faith that you will succeed, that everything is going to be better soon? It happens to me sometimes. I am only a human, and sometimes I want the “receive” part of the story to happen fast, right now and right tomorrow. And when things are delayed from some reasons, unknown for me, I became inpatient, and when many days goes by and nothing really happen, I have the strange feeling that I am losing my faith.
However, you know what? “Nothing really happens” is not quite exact. Because every day something happens. There is something good, there is something nice in every day. Sometimes I walk with my eyes closed…this are the days when I can’t see the beauty, when I can’t see the opportunity, when I feel lost and when I feel that I am losing my faith. But there are many other days, when I walk with an open heart and my eyes wide open, and these are the days, when I realize what I have lost when I walked around with closed eyes.
Strange enough this things: as I train my mind to think different, to see the world with a different eye, to be calm and avoid negativity, when meditation and the company of calm, relaxed people make me feel good, “losing my faith” days are more and more rare. They disappear slowly. However, sometimes I still have this kind of days. Or, nowadays, maybe just hours. But then I regain my balance. Regaining balance it comes much easier now than a while ago.
A while ago, I walked around faithless. I didn’t believed. I didn’t believed in myself, I didn’t believe in my intuition, I didn’t believe those who were already there. And then, slowly, as I have changed my way of thinking, this things seemed to change as well. I started to believe in myself. I started to have faith that something good will happen to me as well, I started to KNOW that I am worthy, I started to feel powerful. And when tiny miracles started to happen, my faith started to strengthen. Growing bigger and bigger. It is extraordinary.
The English dictionary defines faith as: “the complete trust or confidence in someone or something.” And gives synonyms such as: trust, belief and confidence.
For me “faith” is not related to a “religion”. My religion is in my heart and in my mind, I KNOW that there is “something” or “someone” bigger than I am, and my faith is stronger every day. And what is the result of having faith? An open heart, an open mind, a clear vision, a different view of the world and of myself.
One thing is for sure: after being many years “faithless” and walking around like a fool, now that I have find my own belief it will be hard for anyone to take it away from me. Is the faith in myself, in my inner power, in my intuition, the faith in the Universe, the faith in good and the faith in the peace of mind.
Try to find your “faith”, believe in yourself, walk in this world with an open eye and open heart, and you will see that miracles DO happen and dreams DO come true. And if you ever feel that you are losing your faith, like me sometimes, just remember how were those days when you have been “faithless”, I know you don’t want to be there again.
So, just keep the faith, go on walking on your path and follow your dream 🙂
