As I sat back, kicked off my shoes and allowed Spirit to connect with me and help write this article on Faith, I immediately had The Beatles song “Let it Be” with the following words come into my awareness:
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
Sir Paul McCartney received inspiration through a dream from his mother Mary, who died when he was 14, that brought him a sense of peace when he was experiencing challenges and needed support. Ironic that a passed loved one connected, provided inspiration to support him in leaving challenging times behind and to move forward in life….
There are times in life we all go through troubled times, it is part of life …. In times like these, you may experience a variety of emotions ranging from frustration, anxiety, confusion, anger, grief and guilt. You may also have limiting stories, around relationships, family, business, finances, health and well-being or spiritual path like ‘nothings working’, ‘it’s too hard’, ‘There is an always obstacles’, ‘I am not worthy of ____’ etc keeping you stuck in resistance or fear.
Faith is often connected to religion and explained as having trust, assurance and confidence in God and in times of difficult it is suggested we pray to God, to ask for his help and for him to draw close and increase our level of faith. God is simply an energy, I call upon Spirit, that is my loved one’s who have passed, Spirit Guides and the Universe, to provide guidance and support, to increase my level of faith as well as provide strategies to move through challenging times.
Here are 5 tips, to increase your level of faith in trouble times:
Forgive: Acknowledge where you are holding unforgiveness around past experiences, challenges or decisions you perceive as ‘wrong’ or where you failed
Ask: Ask Spirit: Is this true for me? Am I ready to let go of this story? Is it time for change? What am I being invited to allow in?
Integrate: Choose to integrate new experiences, tell yourself new stories, align your thoughts, emotions and actions with what you desire, look for evidence of the new
Take: Each day take steps that feel right, create momentum towards what you want and let the Universe know you have faith
Have fun: embracing joy – watch a movie, sleep, go to the beach, connect with nature - your relaxed energy makes it easier for the Universe to deliver what you desire
So, in times of trouble allow Spirit to whisper words of wisdom and Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be…..
