This week's topic is Faith.
I was extremely blessed to be given an amazing name at birth. I know my father fought for my name, Faith. My love for my father is as significant and powerful now, as it was back then. My best memories as a little girl were with my dad at the beach, in the ocean, riding bicycles on the boardwalk, and singing songs with him.
Since my dad’s passing, I have had many health issues, and the road to optimal health has been a hard one. The medical community does not really know much about grief and loss, and this is very unfortunate. They also do not know anything about a woman's intuition, and the role intuition can play in healing.
Whether one believes in God, or believes that our loved ones watch over us, is really not the point of this post. This post is for anyone reading this to get crystal clear on what they themselves believe. Everyone has a belief in something, and usually this is where they put their trust. Many place their trust in their doctors (to “cure” them), many place their trust in government (that government will solve all the world's problems), many place their trust in money (that money is the “answer” to everything), etc....
Part of my own wellness journey has been to deepen my faith and my trust in God, and to be true to my higher guidance, my own intuition, and my deep discernment. I know what I believe in my heart, about life, God, and love.
I am still here, by the grace of God, and Faith is indeed the perfect name for me. I believe now, more than ever, that there is a divine tapestry in each of our lives, and the key is to be present, and self aware enough to align with it.
