Faith: Know All Shall Be Well

Faith

Kathy Tyler and Joy Drake describe faith as “The unshakable knowing of the heart when nothing makes sense to the mind,” in The Original Angel Cards Book – Inspirational Messages and Meditations. Heart knowing transcends the mind. Dropping more deeply into yourself, you realize everything somehow resolves and you possess all the necessary internal and external resources to keep moving forward in life.

“Optimism is faith in action,” Tyler and Drake also say. Faith allows you to bounce back, to begin anew, to know you can take life as it comes. Life may challenge and humble you but every experience, especially the difficult ones, allow you to develop more love and compassion for yourself and others. Plus each challenge you overcome solidifies your resilience. Julian of Norwich reminds us, “All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.”

Faith builds your sense of safety and connection. “If we seek safety within ourselves and not in the manipulation of environment and circumstance, then our practice becomes a pilgrimage to uncover a deep and abiding faith in our own gifts, our own strengths, our own spirit,” writes Wayne Muller in Legacy of the Heart: The Spiritual Advantages of a Difficult Childhood. 

Fear undermines faith. Fear anticipates and sometimes even materializes negative outcomes and experiences. Consider, for example, how a fear of public speaking can impair your ability to communicate effectively even if you have expertise on the topic. According to Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure, all disharmony begins with fear. To harmonize fear via JSJ self-helps, hold Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 23, your index finger, and the Bladder and Kidney organ functions.

Do you find your faith wavers? What helps you restore your faith?

  1. Hi Christy, Whenever I’m in a crisis situation, I repeat the mantra “All Shall Be Well.” I also ask: Will this matter in ten years time? Thinking back, I can vaguely recall the details of the challenges I have faced in the past ten years. All I know is that I survived and moved on. Right now, I’m dealing with “pebbles” and while they are annoying, I know that I will transcend them. Thanks for another thought-provoking problem. Joanne 🙂
