Faith is the currency of blessings and hearts desires. You must exchange it with God to "cash out". Could it be that you are not where you want to be in life because you can't afford it?
You may be thinking, Affording my life? What do you mean? I'm glad to know that is what you were silently thinking.
Depending on the blessing you're asking for, the amount of faith required is different.
For example, the amount of faith required to start a business is far less than the amount needed to have a successful business.
I am a woman of faith, and I know many women of faith. You should be aware by now that worrying negates prayers. At the same time that we are aware this, many of us worry about finances and money in general. Could it be we are negating our desires by worrying and not believing we will have abundance?
Talk is cheap. Especially when it comes to manifesting things in our lives. As I stated in my first book, Turn on The Lights, you can not fool God. Talking about our goals and plans, making it look good to others in conversation, yet not truly believing in them only stagnates and shines a light on that situation.
Belief is in the results. Look around you. Whatever your circumstances, it's a result of what you believed you could achieve. We have to apply the knowledge we have from how God blessed us with things we truly believed we could have and WILL THE DESIRES INTO EXISTENCE. Desires, dreams, and hopes are all waiting for us. (Hebrews 11:1)
You may be thinking, How do you will things into existence? I'm glad you're thinking about that too!
Go within and give your Imagination permission. Now, picture yourself wherever you want to be and be there. Stay there. Construct the details, smell the smells, imagine the sequences of that moment, be happy in the moment of dreaming, feel the feelings, then ask for this to be so.
Refrain from imagining what it will take to get there. Refrain from imagining the details of the what if's. The devil is in the details.
Imagine your desires are a destination, only 8 hours away by plane. Where you're in a plane, the things that are going on on the ground are too far away for you to focus on. Your destination is the only focus. The pilot of the plane isn't concerned with any local traffic or accidents, stampedes, concerts, award shows, or anything distracting.
So, Just. Fly. You will reach your destination because that is how God has it set up.
In my experience, being the only self-made successful example in my family, I learned that it wasn't easy to imagine a life that you've never witnessed. Until I understood this one principle.
"Life isn't happening to me; it is responding to me." Responding. That was a light switch to add to the first eight light switches I talk about in my book that sent me off to the races! I was like, "Oh, ok! Respond then, Life! I am the author of my life story! Let's make it a great one!"
This is also called Universal law, something I talk about in my second book, What You Don't Know About Your Soul. This is something we do not know about our soul - Universal laws, is law people!
So, what am I saying? You finance your faith with unwavering faith that is true to the feeling language. Not your words. Believe that you are worth everything you desire and OWN that feeling.
What about disappointments and timing?
Yes, I'm glad you thought that as well.
Ego wants things now; Spirit knows when it is ready. Trusting Gods timing is a big part of the unwavering faith process. Simply putting our desires out doesn't mean instant gratification in all cases.
It comes when the time is right, and the faith has been exchanged - as currency.
The more your faith grows, the faster things manifest. I'll share a few of my most recent manifestations in the next posts.
In my book, What You Don't Know About Your Soul, I talk about Time and Ages, and give a spherical picture of time rather than the linear one that we are accustomed to. When talking about the ages, I wrote about the last 6 ages, (ones that we have record of), and each of their characteristics and contributions to the world at large. Ages represent a zodiac sign.
In the Age of Gemini, (6,000-3,800 BCE) the world experienced the development of the first written languages and establishment of villages and communities. The sign Gemini rules communication and speech. It is no coincidence that this age marked these milestones and developments. Gemini, being an "Air Sign", makes it natural to imagine communication spreading like the cool breeze over a mass of land.
Right now, the sun is exiting Taurus, and is almost in the sign of Gemini, my astrological sign, and I wanted to highlight some amazing little known facts about the Gemini person and their soul. I know first hand what happens to a Gemini, how they are filled with energy that needs to be channeled and have a duty to communicate, and teach.
One thing that is common and present in all Geminis: Energy. A natural nervous energy that needs to be harnessed because it can be extreme. It is infectious and powerful. Geminis thrive when they're able to express themselves uncensored, and have constant, meaningful, soul growing changes. They love challenges and accolades. Forward motion and activity are critical for the communicative and expressive Gemini.
Here are the names of some famous Gemini people that you may recognize:
Prince, Kendrick Lamar, Tupac, Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, John F Kennedy, Paul McCartney,Che Guevara, Joan Rivers, Lenny Kravitz, Lisa "LeftEye" Lopes.
When I read this list of names, I began to see the similarities between them all. First, I see very attractive people. I see people who have a unique God given beauty. With this beauty, they aren't arrogant or narcissistic, yet they are unapologetic.
I see a group of headstrong individuals who had purpose. A group of communicators who knew of a spiritual connection to our worlds. Most of the people named above were/are entertainers, yet there is a message given while they are entertaining.
The musicians speak in a rebellious way toward injustices, speaking life and hope in their songs while giving praise to God. Geminis are revolutionaries, military leaders, Presidents, Philanthropists, humanitarians, and extraordinarily talented. All at the same time! Gemini's are usually ahead of their time, and, as the first written language, takes years to discover ALL of the true magic in their masterpieces.
Now, were Prince and Tupac twins? Absolutely! They were true Geminis! Mutable, and flexible, clever and witty, interested and interesting, self expressive, and dual natured, passion and passionate. TWINS. The hallmark of a true Gemini.
Prince and Tupac were rare gifts to this earth. Prince had an understanding and faith beyond earthly comprehension, and while the world was caught up in how gorgeous he was, Prince was concerned about purpose work, and helping others.
Tupac was not your average "thug". He was a very smart and passionate man who was on the verge of blossoming into a true leader in the movement. At just 21, he had the people in his hand like Fred Hampton of the Black Panthers. In interviews he always was speaking and dropping jewels on social injustices and the system, poverty, and the black community in general.
Thank God for allowing their presence and continued essence. Thank God for Geminis!
Every sign has its markers and elements. If you're not sure about yours, look it up. You'll be surprised at how much makes sense for you and make sure to purchase my book, to learn more about the Ages and other things you may not know about your soul.
