Faith is a journey that comes with the journey of life.
With each lesson and experience we have a choice to deepen our faith or be bound by disempowerment or fear.
We give our experiences in life an emotional identity.
We can choose to embrace positive thinking in every situation.
It took me time to understand that.
That the events in our lives are truly neutral, that our thoughts are what give it the powerful emotion that we connect with the experience. The event or circumstance has no meaning until we give it meaning and every event and circumstance in our life you have the power to attach positive thinking and meaning to.
I know that some of you are thinking, that’s cr*p.
Not many people knew about my second child. Her life and death was really something I kept hidden. For years she was my silent secret child. It’s because I had attached strong negative emotions to her death. I remember saying, “how can this happen to me?”
I felt guilty that I hadn’t protected her “well enough.” I kept silently telling her over and over, “I’m sorry.”
There can be a destruction that loss can leave. Whether the loss is death, divorce, serious illness, loss of a job, or loss of innocence.
The destruction that loss can leave can be the catalyst that creates your life!
It was up to me to take the event and use it as a catalyst to learn and create the life I wanted. The truth is, I attached, guilt, victim and negative thoughts to her death.
It was up to me to, #1 want to change the emotions and then, #2 have the courage to change.
Lets face it anytime we get used to an idea, emotion, or experience we get comfortable and it takes courage to move out of the comfort zone no matter what we are holding on to.
A great example is when we hold onto relationships that aren’t good for us, but they become comfortable. I had a relationship with my daughter even though she was not here physically. It wasn’t a good one but I was comfortable with it.
It took work to let those feelings rise back up and to feel them. It hurt to bring emotions back to the surface, but here is where I could give them a new thought, create positive thinking and a new identity. Here is where I could let go of the grief, guilt, and victim feelings and bring in some gratitude.
This is where faith is part of our journey. It’s so much harder to forgive yourself and change your thoughts when there is no faith. Without faith you are left with the thought that life is full of random events.
Faith gives you a feeling that the events in your life have purpose. With faith it’s easier to take the experience and be grateful for lessons that the experience offers.
This is where we all have the choice do we take the “leap of faith,” or do we allow the circumstance, or events define us. We would love to help you explore your feelings and help you create positive thoughts from your past experiences.
