You Gotta Have Faith

It’s easy to have faith when life is humming along smoothly. However, when faced with challenges and sudden shifts, we should tap into faith even more.

Just over nine years ago, perspiration and nausea were in command after I’d just experienced the most excruciating of my early psychic training sessions. Stumbling from the dark bedroom into the glaringly lit bathroom at 4 a.m., I was confused as to what was happening to me.

A dichotomy of emotions poured in: I was frightened because I didn’t have any answers as to what was occurring, while, at the same time, I was intrigued because I knew the dynamics had to be important.

We all have major life changes – careers, relationships, living arrangements, etc. – and they can be unsettling at times. Yet, these moments can also be revealing, leading a person to conquer fears, express gratitude and pursue one’s greater potential.

Nine years ago in that bathroom, I couldn’t escape my ordeal. I chose to work through it. While I didn’t immediately have all of the answers, I grasped onto something perhaps more valuable: faith, the kind of faith that I wouldn’t doubt. Faith, I determined, was all I needed to move forward with my life.

The first step, a big one, would be to find the courage to leave the surreal surroundings of that bathroom. Switching off the light, I inhaled deeply and walked with caution back into the cave-like bedroom, for I knew that there would be more unexplained things to come before sunrise.

Love and light,

    You always write a message that I need to hear and contemplate. I read your post after my morning meditation – when I give thanks for the abundance of all good things in my life. Some of the things that I consider “good things” include perfect health. Some people would remind me of the physical and mental pain I endure everyday due to osteoarthritis and spinal degeneration. However, I still have faith.

    Churchill once said, “When you’re going through hell, keep going.”
    Love, and light,
