Faith is the strange place between knowing and believing. The book h Think and Grow Rich states; “Faith is the eternal elixir which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought”. The book continues to explain: Every person is what he or she is because of the dominating thoughts that one permits to occupy their mind. Thoughts, which a person deliberately places in his or her own mind, and encourages with sympathy and with which he or she mixes only one or more of the emotions constitute the motivating forces, which direct and control their every movement, act and deed.
Thought which when mixed with any of the feelings of emotions, constitute a magnetic force, which attracts from the vibrations of the ether other similar or related thoughts. This is the basis for faith, for if you have faith then you can be or do anything. There are many religious organizations that tell you to have faith, yet none of them teaches you how to develop and use faith. The book Think and Grow Rich does, it tells you both how to develop faith, and how to use it for your enrichment, and is the basis of this little article.
An interesting fact that you may already know is that if something is repeated enough people begin to believe it as the truth. You can use that same principle to develop your faith. In past articles, you have been asked to write down your goals and dreams, and if you have done so, you have taken the largest step to their accomplishment and realization. To have faith is to read them aloud every day, in so doing so become to vibrate what you read and convince your subconscious that what you have read is the truth, and so it makes that your reality.
Now you must understand that the universe is a great warehouse that holds the ether, this in turn is what is made into your reality by your thoughts. The universe holds destructive vibrations just as well as creative ones, what you bring to yourself is what you allow your dominating thoughts to be. Here is where faith comes in, this is the part where you can use faith to control your thoughts and therefore your destiny and your fortune. Now pay close attention to the next paragraphs as they describe how to get faith and how to use it for your own advantage.
As you know, when developing a skill you get better with repetition and practice, you cannot start out as an expert, you may only ever start at the beginning and work your way to expert. To have faith is to have your conscious mind convince your subconscious that what you are saying is the truth and that in turn causes the subconscious to connect to the higher power, and this in turn causes your thought to become reality. A simple system yet so misunderstood underused and misused. Faith is where you have to take an action without any proof, where you start and continue to do something, without any visible evidence or support. As stated before faith is that place between knowing and believing, and you must be persistent in its use to be successful. Here then is how you use faith: You have a piece of paper that you have written your goals and dreams on; you must use that to “fool” yourself into believing it is the truth. You do that by constantly reading that list, by constantly saying it, by constantly thinking of it. Through this repetition, your subconscious will begin to accept it as truth and so in turn will cause it to become your reality.
This little “trick” is called faith, for when you believe something no proof is needed to accept it as truth, and when you know something, it is because you can prove it. Faith cannot be proven, and has no proof, for it is a technique, a technique that you can use to create belief and knowledge, it is the stepping-stone to go from nothing to something. As you become proficient at using faith you will see more rapid results, after all it is a measure of your faith that produces success. You must now use your new knowledge, apply this faith to your life, and you will see miracles.
