How to Boost Your Faith
Faith means complete trust or confidence in someone or something or strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual understanding rather than proof. In my line of work, it’s absolutely essential to have faith. I feel I live more in my imagination than I do in the world of form (what we can physically see and touch). I have learned through the years that faith alone makes all the difference in your ability to be happy and healthy in all areas of your life because we learn to live by divine guidance alone (which is always for our best possible good – so much more so than our meager egos will attempt to provide). If you have doubt in any area that things aren’t going well or good enough, you cause dis-ease emotionally first then physically. So, I wanted to give some ideas on how you can boost your faith in the unseen world and become a power house!
- Keep a list of your prayer requests in your iphone in your notes (or wherever you choose that’s convenient 24-7). List the request then write down the time, date, and way the request was fulfilled. There will be prayers that weren’t answered because you can’t go against other peoples free will, some prayers aren’t meant to be answered for your own good, and some get answered in strange ways that don’t look like what you were asking for but go you to the end result nontheless. Keeping this list will help boost your faith.
- Keep a journal of random surprises, miracles, and synchronicities. For the same reason, this will help you follow your divine guidance more clearly. You can even start to follow the synchronistic signs like you’re figuring out a mystery. Add your intuition to it and your life becomes magical. Instead of being steered by logic, you’ll stop and ask your higher self, “Should I?” or have epiphanies, “Oh! This is why I’ve been getting messages of changes to come. I know just what I need to do ’cause this other card (tarot or oracle cards are great) I’ve been pulling says to take action without delay.”
- Practice with energy and psychic work. Learn about energy and intuitive work and practice on others. There are tons of videos on Youtube. I highly recommend Teal Swan’s videos. She’s fantastic. Ask friends and relatives to let you practice “guessing” things about their lives. Practice answering yes or no intuitively instead of from logic. Practice all the time. At first you’ll get things wrong, but eventually you navigate and sense your way through to trusting the visions, feelings, urges, and answers that come to you. If you want, write those down to! If it’s profound enough, get a testimonial from them. Gathering testimonials helps boost your faith a lot.
- Read my article “Its All Just Energy” and do the “Thank you, God, for my Misery” exercise! After doing this exercise a few times and going back to it whenever you need it will boost your faith considerably in how supported and loved you are in everything that’s going on around you. Believe it or not, it’s all perfect! And it’s all bringing you to your highest and best life if you’ll just see it as so.
These will give you some ways to get started. If you have any other ideas, please list them in the comments below. We all have wonderful wisdom to share. I’m here to support you if needed as well. Please feel free to leave a comment below with any questions or feedback. Namaste.
