We have all heard about faith, and many immediately attribute it to following a religion or having a religious practice that you're keeping in place.
But the kind of faith I am talking about, and have been experiencing a tremendous amount of lately, is a kind of everyday, "create things as you want them to be" kind of faith.
It can involve tasks large or small, or what gets me really excited: dreams and goals and desires. I have to say I don't care for the word "goal" very much, though, because it's actually very restricting. What if God or the Universe has much more in store for you than you can imagine?
Are you going to limit what you want by deciding you want a certain goal?
How many of you have actually achieved a goal you set out for yourself? Many, I hope. But if goals sometimes elude you, or if your vision for yourself is beyond a specific goal, then opening yourself to receive a vision is a much stronger way to achieve a desire.
If you're someone who lives or likes to live a creative life, it very likely means that you have a highly creative mind. And a creative mind is receptive.
It's receptive of ideas—ideas that go beyond what you have thought of yourself. And I find that when a meditation practice is good and strong and regular, there is also a good and strong and regular reception of ideas.
I like to see goals as very specific accomplishments you'd like to achieve, like planting a garden, canning your vegetables, or building a website or podcast. But visioning and having faith in a larger vision for yourself is something much greater than specific tasks to achieve.
These visions are often solutions to problems you think you have, and your receptiveness to them in the beginning is directly related to how much faith you will have in their realization.
How receptive are you? Do you have faith that your visions will work out? That they will come true for you?
That all will be all right, and all you need to do now is have faith?
Ponder that for a bit: is your faith strong?
Is the outcome you seek in the form of an idea available to you, and do you believe in it?
What would you like to achieve?
What problem are you wanting to solve?
Your faith and clarity await you.
There's nothing that I'd like more than to help you envision what you'd like for yourself next year. If we spend a half hour together, you'll be so amazed at what we can dream up for you, and the success that comes with having the support, guidance, and a committed coach by your side.
I know, because having a coach is always what brought me to the next level as well. If any of this interests you, book a Clarity Call so we can set your path straight for the coming year.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful week ~
