Have you ever heard that you are actually a spiritual being having a human experience? What do you think this means? I think that it means that there is a part of us, somewhere deep inside of us, which connects us to the divine. I believe that that we are eternal souls that incarnate and reincarnate into our third, physical dimension to have this earthly, human experience. I believe that this inner essence of the divine is ever present in our lives and physical bodies. I believe that it enables us to have thoughts, feelings, receive divine guidance while on earth as well as to remember our divine essence which I believe is unconditional love, abundance, and faith. You might call it your soul, spirit, intuition, or higher self. Whatever you call it, just know it is there with you, right this moment. This inner form of energy is part of you. Let’s have a look at how you can connect to this part of you.
There are many ways to connect to your own divine essence. One way is to know that you are faith. No, I don’t mean to have faith. Perhaps you are going through a rough patch of your life. Perhaps you have just lost your job, are worried about your finances, concerned about the future, praying for a loved one’s recovery, grieving someone, suffering from depression, or simply have the blues and are confused about what’s next in your life. If you asked someone for advice on what to do, perhaps that someone would tell you to have faith. I would like to tell you that you don’t have to have faith, but that you are faith. Undoubtedly, there is some sort of higher power/intelligence at work in our lives. I know that everything happens for a reason. As human beings we often don’t understand the meaning of an event or situation that has occurred in our lives. I believe that we don’t have to. But I know that we are faith.
As spiritual beings having a human existence, I believe that all we have to do is to remember where a part of us comes from. All we have to remember is that we are a part of the divine. Wherever you seek it – outside of yourself such as in an omniscient God, or inside of you, such as in your inner self – just know it is there and you are a part of it. Whatever you might be going through right now, know that you have that inner light within you. Know that you are light and love. Know that you have the abundance, wisdom, and power to change your life. Know that you have the strength to get through whatever you are going through right now or whatever might come. You know that because you not only have these qualities in you but you are these qualities, right in this moment as a spiritual being having a human experience. The feelings you are feeling might not feel good. It is easy to lose hope and want to give up. However, do know that you don’t have to. Your feelings are just telling you that you are human. If your feelings are not good, you know that you can turn to your divine essence for the comfort and faith that you are seeking.
This post is dedicated to all my friends, who are going through a rough patch in their lives. Know that I am always here for you. Know that you don’t have to have faith that everything is going to be all right. Know that you are faith. You are a spiritual being having an earthly existence. The divine is faith. And so are you.
Love and faith,
