Faith can manifest in many ways. It can be a dedication to a belief, a hope, or a prayer. It can be a stubborn refusal to give up on ones dreams. Faith can be the ‘taken for granted,’ trust that such things as the sun rising, and the season’s changing, will occur, no matter what the personal challenges we are facing at any given time. Faith is a vital ingredient in all of our endeavors, to grow, to expand our consciousness, and ultimately, to manifest a reality on the planet that we feel proud of on a cosmic level. A reality that provides for generations of future children, animals, plant life, and pure water.
When I feel my Faith challenged, I like to go outside. To a place in nature that appeals in that particular moment in time, whether it be seascape, mountain, forest, river, lake, hillside, pasture or garden. Once I am standing or sitting on the earth, without the constraint of cement or floor beneath my feet, I am better able to regain the flutters of inspiration, comfort or peace, that are needed to again connect with Faith. As soon as we begin to focus our awareness in a manner that is seeking a connection with the Divine, our Higher Self, or our Soul purpose, we begin to send out etheric chords of light that vibrate at an extremely pure rate. The vibration begins to effect all of the thought patterns, emotional challenges, the physical health of our bodies, and the way we feel connected or disconnected to the planet.
A prayerful thought, a moment of meditation, effects each level of our personal and communal experience. The thoughts that become barriers, are those that diminish our self esteem, and our Faith, and are often a result of our Ego and fear. To overcome such thoughts, consider taking off ones shoes, curling toes and fingers into the ground, and noticing the way plants courageously grow, even if only for a single season, ever upwards, to share their intrinsic beauty, with the world. Watch the way animals move, the way they navigate a largely human landscape, seeking out the wild places, and in domestic cases, sharing unconditional love each and every day. On days where I feel tired or sad, I watch my dog leap through tall grass, or the way the tree branches seem to greet the wind with fondness. I listen to the natural world, and in this listening, I am able to reconnect with Faith for myself, the planet, and her people.
For a connection to the Divine feminine aspects, one of the ascended masters that offers constant companionship to anyone seeking to renew their Faith is White Buffalo Calf Woman. For a renewal of the Divine masculine, the ascended master Jesus offers assistance. Both carry gentle energy, of renewal and compassion, for a changeable earth, an evolving humanity, and a respect for all living beings, the earth included.
A mantra/prayer I have found useful in connecting with their particular light resonance is as follows:
“Dear God/dess of creation, please help me to feel the light within this earth, the light within myself, and the pathways on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual planes that I can travel to feel more grounded in my true self. Please send me assistance through the energy gifts of Jesus, to be patient with myself, as I learn each new tool for this growth. Please send me the energy assistance of White Buffalo Calf Woman, so that my relationship with myself, this earth, and all those I encounter, is based on respect and sacred awareness for the gifts of this life. Thank you. Amen, Aho, and OM.”
with light and respect,
May your Faith illuminate the path you have chosen,
