Reflect: Faith

I had a very interesting conversation with one of my sisters about faith. She had a bump in the road regarding her business and said, “I don’t know I just can’t see the future. I don’t know if I can do this.”

I said, “Well, do you believe in your vision? “Yes of course,” she answered. I further questioned, “Well, do you believe in yourself?” She was quiet.

I shared some of the things I believe in… “If you can believe in all your ideas, all your projects, your visions that you want to execute-turn the view inwards and put the same faith into yourself to make it happen.” We talked about how when we don’t know how things are going to turn out- without tangible proof- the fear and self-doubt set in and take over.

“Yeah, but you don’t need to see it. You just need to believe you can. The mind needs to see evidence, the heart just knows. Faith is in the heart, not in the mind.” I replied. 

We ended the conversation rather abruptly as she had to go back to work. A few days later she messaged me saying, “I like how you brought up faith. Thanks for the talk.”

Sometimes I don’t even know I say until it’s said. x
