Why you need blind faith (and how to get it)

The definition of faith may not be very clear. Much has been said about what faith is but living it remains a challenge many people are yet to overcome. Faith is unlimited trust in someone or something. It is a strong belief that you are ready to defend and contribute your time and resources towards it.

Faith has no boundaries. It is as deep as the pacific and wide as the heavens. You can do unimaginable things for faith’s sake. It remains the best choice you make in your eyes even when everyone around you has their doubts. Does faith have eyes? Can it see the reality of the matter or how desperately you believe in a cause? Well, faith has eyes and ears. It is living if you practice it correctly (there are rules of practice). However, some limitations block the manifestation of faith in your life. Some of these limitations are:

      Your sight.

The gift of sight is a blessing but it is the greatest obstacle of faith. The eyes of faith do not require physical vision. They are within you and can see beyond physical things. Such is the weight of faith. It requires you to be ‘blind’. Who does not love sight? We use it to watch our favorite shows, play games, behold the beauty of the universe, visualize how things look like, and many more. By the same sight, we see obstacles in our way. This impossible mentality brought by sight is the number one enemy of faith. It is a great limitation of believing that things will work out fine because what we see at the moment is the difficulty ahead.

    Your mind.

Your mind conceives a lot of things. It may work for faith or against it. Sadly, it mostly works against it because of sight as seen earlier on. Your mind is an asset that continually thinks about what is possible as told by all body senses. It automatically rejects dreams that do not conform to the standards it has set (unless trained otherwise). No wonder, most people of faith are looked down upon by the ‘rational’ ones. Faith can never make sense where the mind does not embrace it. The two can never co-exist harmoniously if the mind is unprepared.

    Your doubts.

It is normal to doubt illogical theories and dreams. But when it goes overboard, faith stops working. It has eyes and ears to recognize your doubts. It will never work for you because you are constantly opposing that it will work. You do not have to agree right away but allow faith some benefit of the doubt that it can work. You can have your doubts but it gets worse when other people contribute to them. It is like they are outing a rubber stamp in your mind that what faith is trying to make happen shall not succeed.

Overcoming these limitations requires that you have blind faith. The kind of faith that will be adamant on the possibility that it will work. Here is how you can develop blind faith:

      Use vision instead of sight.

Vision is for the long term while sight is short term. The visually impaired may lack sight but they can have vision. Something is seriously wrong when you do not have a vision of where you are heading. Your vision is what a compass is to a sea sailor. It gives direction when they are in the middle of the ocean. A sharp vision will see the prize at the end of the race and not the obstacles on the way.

    Focus on the bigger picture.

Your mind will tell you about here and now because it is what you can see at the moment. To develop blind faith, you need to focus on the end product. Look at how beautiful the end will be and let this inspire you to outgrow the thoughts of your mind. Not all thoughts are bad. It is just that some may mislead you to think about the possibilities at the moment and not the wonders that blind faith can bring into your life. Your vision is uninterrupted when you focus on the bigger picture. It is what fertilizer is to crops on the farm – constantly providing nutrients for growth. Likewise, the bigger picture feeds your faith.

    Be encouraged.

You need to listen to the voice of reason when you are in despair. This will build your faith more. Do not listen to those who are out there to discourage you and show you that it is not possible. They will sink even the little hope that was turning to faith. Be careful with whom you give attention. They are the ultimate faith builders or breakers.

A lot of power lies in blind faith. It will help you overcome a million hurdles your way. These are some of its benefits:

You manifest the law of attraction.

The law of attraction works on the principle of faith. You only attract what you think, speak, or feel. They are major players in manifesting your faith. Blind faith is necessary because it helps you develop the right attitude in manifesting the law of attraction.

You rise above challenges.

Challenges are part of the growing process. It is difficult to grow through them without faith – blind faith to be specific. Your focus shifts from the prevailing challenges to the prize at the end of the race. It is a powerful driving force that is unstoppable by challenges of any nature.

It clears any doubt you may have.

Faith and doubts can never mix. When you finally develop blind faith, it means that you have overcome all forms of doubts. You are empowered to try new things that will contribute to the success of your vision.

It empowers you to see only the positive side.

Positivity is impossible without faith. The list of benefits of positivity is endless. The major one is that it is the best gift for yourself. When you bag faith in your bucket list, you have a lot more rewards too.

It is high time you appreciated blind faith more and follow this guide to work towards achieving it. It will unlock the full potential of your vision.

Nature’s Way of Healing your Hurt

Is your heart hurt?

The genesis of hurt is a lengthy story. Everyone has their own version. Some are more emotional than others and they have left the hurt very bitter. Blames are thrown right, left, and center with the promise of revisiting the hurt in the name of revenge.

Well, nature has different news for you. She will only ‘make you whole again’ if you abide by her rules. First, you have to understand the origin of your hurt. Was your heart truly hurt or did you hurt yourself? Most people will definitely be defensive and claim that it was not their fault. 

Emotionally detach yourself from your hurt. This is a big win. Thereafter, take a step back and evaluate what really hurt you.

Causes of hurt.

  1. Rejection.

Who would not be hurt by rejection? Almost everyone would, except the emotionally numb ones. Rejection could damage your self-esteem and you start questioning what it is that you lack.

Imagine your people refusing to be associated with you. They treat you as an outcast and even treat strangers better than you. Ouch! You may not recover from it soon. Except only if you allow nature to heal you completely.

Do not take rejection so personally. Other people’s opinions about you will remain just that – opinions. Let it not affect you because it is not the truth. You know better. Can you imagine arguing with someone else that what you are holding is a cup, yet they insist it is a spoon?

Their perception of what you are holding to be a spoon will not change the reality that it is a cup. This is how you should view rejection. It will completely ruin you if you take every opinion into mind.

  1. Unmet expectations.

Unmet expectations from people you thought highly of could hurt you. You had put your hopes on them yet they fail you miserably. That was a bad investment. Sadly, some of the people you trusted completely do not even bother to explain why they failed you.

It is normal to have expectations. The only point you faulted is looking entirely up to someone else to fulfill your expectations. That is what will hurt.

Whenever you expect something from someone, give room for failure. It is not entirely a bad idea to entertain that possibility.

You will appreciate your expectations being met and still understand when they are not. This will make it not hurt that much.

  1. Discouragement.

Discouragement too hurts. It hurts when you try something severally and still do not succeed. Maybe what hurts most is that you failed yourself and have no one to blame. You will be discouraged and it may put off your spirit. healing your hurt

The good news is that failure does not spell doom to you. It is just another chance for you to learn how not to do something. You will definitely not repeat it next time and this will boost your chances of success.

It is almost impossible not to get hurt from expectations. You just need to pat yourself on the shoulder and move on. Nature will heal you from all hurt if you let her.

  1. Disease.

Sickness causes both physical and emotional hurt. Your body stops functioning normally yet you cannot help it. You seek medical help and hope the medication will help you recover.

Diseases have been part of human life for the longest time. Some have succumbed to it but many more have recovered from it and become stronger.

Take comfort in nature’s healing ability to make it all go away.

How can nature heal all your hurt? Even when you solely hurt yourself, mother nature will swiftly come to your rescue.

Nature’s compensation.

  1. Unmerited favor to heal rejection.

Favor is good things being skewed in your direction even when you least deserve it. The universe can conspire to favor you in due time.

Initially closed doors will open for you. The same people who wanted to do nothing with you will look for you upon realizing your worth. They will apologize and make it up to you.

There is no explanation as to how the universe channels such high traffic of favor your way. Do not rely on your strength, trust nature to compensate for your hurt.

  1. A second chance to heal unmet expectations.

Unmet expectations are not the end of it all. Nature offers a second chance for you to try again. Although other people may fail you, in her wisdom, nature will allow you to do it yourself.

Do not be in a hurry for a second attempt. If you do not wait for the right time to be gifted by nature, you may hurt yourself more than how it was the first time.

A second chance is a golden opportunity to wipe your tears of hurt. This is because you have learned one more way of how not to do what it is you were doing.

  1. An environment for meditation to heal your discouragement.

Discouraged people often withdraw from people. They want to spend time alone and cry their hearts out. The thought of recovering from their hurt is never in their diary, at least not for the moment.

Nature’s calm environment can silently offer you a shoulder to lean on. It gives you the peace that is lacking elsewhere. You can meditate on the good things you are planning and reminiscence your past achievements.

Meditation will help you overcome your current hurt from discouragement.

  1. Medicine to heal your sickness.

The best medicine comes from nature. Even modern medicines are made from indigenous herbs that are a gift from mother nature.

Ever since long before civilizations until these modern times, nature has continued to be the source of many medicines. She is looking out for our health.

There are many ways of dealing with hurt but nature’s path is the surest one. You just need to be patient and pay attention to her. You will soon forget it ever happened.

The Self-Healing Benefits Of Manifestation

“Eliminate all forms of doubt and replace it with the full expectation that you’ll get what you’re looking for”

The first time I heard that quote, a light bulb lit up in my mind. 

For the first time in my life I began to grasp the basic principles of what manifestation is all about.

Over time, this has grown to be one of my favorites. Simply because the key to speeding up your health or getting rid of pain, trauma or illness lies in it.

In fact, I think everyone who’s aspiring to live in a healthier body would do well to read this quote, understand it, and start applying it to their manifestation practices.

Of course telling someone to erase their doubts for better health, and actually doing it are two different things.

And that’s why you’re about to learn exactly HOW to achieve a healthier body with the best manifestation practices.

Let’s jump in….

The Link Between Manifestation And Health

Like begets like. What you put in is what you get out. What goes on the inside shapes the outside.

Well, you get the point. Your health, and life in general is a reflection of your inner vibrations. Your vibrations are a reflection of your feelings. And your feelings are a byproduct of your thoughts.

Everything is linked. Connecting the dots backwards from your health problems will give you a profound understanding of your health.

Most people’s approach to manifestation is wrong. For example, people think their desire for something comes first, then they’ll feel better.

But that’s not how things work. Your desires stem from adopting the right feelings.

You see, you’re always manifesting. And the universe picks up on vibrations your body is giving off.

For a clearer picture let’s look at an analogy. A back pain could be the reflection of you feeling like you’re carrying the weight of the world.

See how that works? Simply process your feelings, and you can reduce pain in your life.

Stress, which is a major contributor to poor health, is born out of constant worrying. Worries suck the energy out of your life. And compounds negativity.

It’s tough to manifest anything good when you’re always in a mental loop of negativity.

Finding ways to lift your mood creates a positive connection with the universe.

Because the higher vibrations mean better results. And high vibrations result from positive emotions.

5 – Step Process To Manifest Better Health

Now, it’s time to get granular on the details.

This part will walk you through a proven plan to experience better health with lesser pain or stress.

Of course, you have to follow the order the steps appear. Because each stage requires you to be mentally prepared before you jump in.

Step 1: Let go of negative words.

You know the ones I’m talking about. “My life’s a mess”. “My day is terrible”

While you might think this is being honest, you’re conditioning your mind to accept this reality. It’s harder to shake it off once your brain sees life as terrible or out to get you.

Words are powerful. And they can make a huge impact on our lives.

Some words can even make you feel about your situation. You start talking down on yourself, making you feel like a victim.

When you’re much more than that. Your body is designed to experience good health. And negative statements about yourself just gets in the way.

Remember, it’s what you say about yourself that matters. So make it count.

Step 2: Believe 

Without belief, everything falls about. Even miracles require some sort of belief before they manifest.

Want to experience good health? Believe in your ability to manifest it.

The universe rewards your belief with the reality you seek. So if you want to get rid of pain or illness 

Step 3: Improve your feelings.

Your emotions are a guiding force in your spiritual journey. Find ways to lift your mood and feel better despite your situation.

Listen to your favorite song or watch an inspiring movie. Heck, you can even pull out a bag of your favorite quotes – then go through them every morning or before you sleep.

Fact is, the better your feelings, the better your results. There are endless ways that allow us to experience a rush of positive emotions.

Find the ones that apply to you, then  integrate them into your daily habits. It can really be anything. Whether that’s taking up your favorite hobbies. Or having a drink with positive people.

Health affirmations are also brilliant ways to boost your feelings.

Here are just a few of my favorites:

“I deserve good health. I am worthy of experiencing happiness”

“I release pain and sickness out of my body”

You want to always keep your vibrational frequency high enough. And affirmations are great ways to do that.

Take note, positive emotions leads to high vibrations

Step 4: Express Gratitude.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but being grateful for the things in our life has a huge impact on our mood.

If you’re feeling sick be grateful for the tiniest things. Say thank you to the nurse or doctor taking care of you.

Appreciate the cleaners and managers keeping the hospitals running. Say thank you to anyone holding it out for you. Not once a week but every day you see them.

Tell your friends you’re grateful for having them in your life

Fun fact: this is also an exciting way to feel better. You become aware of the blessings in your life.

Then the universe picks up on the positive vibrations your body gives off.

Step 5: Visualize what you want.

Now, that you’ve gotten rid of all the negative stuff, there’s so much space left.

It’s time to start filling it up with the reality you seek.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath and visualize the body you want to live in.

You’re moving freely. There’s no pain. And you’ve got the strength to carry out tasks

To increase your power of visualizations, you can use a vision board.

In my opinion, vision boards are one of the best ways to paint your desired picture.

Find images that inspire how you want your future health to be. Then look at it every morning.

For example, if you struggle with joint pain, you can collect images of people running or dancing. That’s how you create a vision board for your health goals

Then use it to visualize yourself in a healthier, stronger body.

Wrapping Things Up

As they say, health is wealth. The good thing is you’re in greater control of your health than you think.

You’re the source of your reality. And most of what occurs in our lives is a reflection of our inner thoughts, feelings or beliefs.

That’s we can set ourselves on the right path with positive ones.

As always, happy manifesting!
