For over 15 years, I’ve coached and mentored conscious creators on four continents around the world. Here you won’t find a bunch of hype for super inflated rah-rah motivation because this podcast is a combination of brain science, universal spiritual laws and ancient wisdom and spiritual teachings. All rolled into one to take your life to levels you’ve never dared to imagine were possible. If you’re wanting more from life to feel better to heal to have a peaceful mind to feel empowered and alive and to bring more abundance and prosperity into your life, then this podcast is for you.
Because you’re going to start learning how to master your mind, expand and grow your consciousness and when you do that, you can create the place to be free and anything you want, then becomes possible for you. I’m so glad you’re here. What does faith have to do with creating healing or transformation in your body or your life? That is the topic of this episode and I’m sharing some teachings with you that I have used time and time again not only with myself but with my clients and they are so critical to understanding the mechanism of how we work with the universal laws and with God source spirit, whatever you call that infinite intelligence and power in your life and your world.
If you have a problem with the word God, just we’re not splitting hairs about terminology here. It is about the essence and the energy of this omnipotent good presence and power in the world and the universe in our life and in our bodies. So please interchange. I’m going to use the word source if you’re someone who’s very religious, you might want to use the word God. If you’re someone who is more spiritual, you might want to use the word spirit. I personally am using source. So I want you to understand from this episode and these teachings, what faith is first of all, really, truly what faith is because most people do not understand. I certainly didn’t. And I didn’t understand the power that it has in transforming our lives in creating what it is that we desire. So I’m digging into that today. Space is something that we are actually, it is inherent and inborn in us. We lose it based on our parents or schools or churches or teachings or programming, in our stories that we create from our wounds. What makes faith so difficult sometimes to understand is that it is principles and concepts of the unseen, right? It’s the unseen, when you learn these tools and this concept, it is an active practice, you’ve heard me say numerous times would become what we practice. It is an active, practice.
That you can actually feel, it has a palpable energy to it, and you can feel it in your body. Now that is not what most people, that’s kind of not what we have really been trained, like I used to think, oh, if I think real hard, if I focus your heart and say, I have faith, I have faith, I have faith, I have faith. In so many times, if we’re raised in that religious environment, we’re having faith in praying to God, which is something outside of ourselves. This imaginary, you know, man on a cloud with a big gold G, right? Him. We’ve identified him, God and him. As this entity that is outside of us versus a presence that is in and through everything in the universe, every animal ever creature, every human, every plant, and any flower that accents and intelligent substance, it is our heart beating without us thinking about it.
Our breath moving without us having to think about it. That is the essence in the energy of source God intelligent substance. So faith in that, so many of us are raised and taught that it is faith in God and something outside ourself versus an active presence in cultivating an active presence inside ourselves within our energy within our being in our body. And I’m going to dig a little deeper into how you do that, how we do that. But faith makes us whole because in reality, we already are whole. So a lot of people who are trying to create healing in their physical bodies or their minds are, again, seeking something outside themselves, but you already are whole.
And so faith is the act of using our mind and our thoughts and our feelings and emotions and energy to make that our truth and reality. That we already are whole because we are of the one mind. That one presence. So your faith, when you practice it simply acts to reveal that which already is. So Robert Russell, I’m going to do some reading here from it’s a book called God works through faith. You’ve heard me talk about it before. It’s by Robert a Russell.
He says we do not see the law of faith, but we know its power by what it does. Our task is fourfold to become aware of that which eternally is the omnipresence. Of source, God and spirit, to become aware of that which is eternally omnipresent. That’s the first thing. Number two is to claim the good we desire through faith, recognition, and realization. Number three is to accept the desire as fulfilled. And number four is to realize our oneness with source until the feeling of fulfillment comes to us. What does he mean by this? Number one, become aware. Become aware that your energy, everything is energy of the one mind, the one heart of source of intelligent substance.
That’s the first step, become aware. Most of you listening to the podcast have an intellectual understanding of that. We’re talking about going deeper and actually feeling it in your body. In order to do that, what I teach people is the stillness practice. It never fails. I’m going to do a podcast on that probably next. The difference between stillness and meditation because they are profoundly different and stillness will lead you to this. Number two, claim the good that we desire through faith recognition and realization. So the faith part is first, and that is an unwavering, unshakable belief that this is real and true. And then number three to accept the desire as fulfilled. So here’s what typically happens. Why faith is so important in healing and transformation? People will come to me. I mean, 99% of the time, they’re at their wits end for wanting to create change in their life. Whether it’s physical, mental, emotional healing, or relationships, careers, whatever it is. They’re at their wits end. They’re stuck in a recurring pattern. Well, what happens is number one, we share with people closest to us about how it, you know, first of all, we’ll share what it is we want to change.
We have a dream and a desire when it change. And of course, we want our loved ones and people and friends that are close to us to believe in us and buy into it and support us. What happens when they don’t? We, they’ve planted a seed of doubt. We start to doubt that the healing of the transformation is possible for us. That’s not faith. That is letting somebody else into the mix. To create insecurity and fear. So you start to doubt yourself and that’s not accepting that the desire is fulfilled.
Now you’re saying to yourself, well, am I crazy? Could this happen? Or could this not happen? Do I really believe that I can heal this ailment? That I can heal this ailment that I personally have the ability to heal this ailment. And again, 99% of the time, we don’t believe it. So until you can have an exercise that phase, source in the universe can not line it up for you now remember, there is nothing we already said, faith simply acts to reveal that which is already there.
That which is already there. So everybody is trying to heal and create transformation and change and they’re looking outside themselves. Then they start sharing it with people. People put the seed of doubt and fear and insecurity into them and they are now the frequency of doubt insecurity and fear. That’s what’s in the way. It’s not that you have to get healing or get a transformation, get something that is outside of you. What’s happening is that your thoughts, your beliefs, your programming and your energy is keeping you from what is already there. Does that make sense to you? I hope it does. The act of practicing faith comes to pouring all of your energy and your thoughts into a commitment that you accept the desire is already fulfilled.
You accept the healing is already fulfilled. Now I am not a religious person. I am a spiritualist, but there is countless references to in the Bible, I guess. I want to say there are countless references to saying that those who came in faith to Jesus, right? If they came and faith that it was already done, the healing would happen. And those that did not have faith that were doubtful, they went back and left Jesus without being healed. It is the faith that is the active mechanism. You can’t be half in half out. And this is primarily what happens, especially people come to me, they are on their last ditch effort, and they don’t really believe it because they’ve had so many experiences of it not healing. Of things not changing of them not transforming of them not building whatever it is that they’re trying to build in their life. The effort at that point needs to be restoring the energetic mechanism and you can feel it in your heart when you’re there.
This is why visualization and feeling combined practiced consistently. I still do. Three times a day, my practices. They don’t take very long. But I still do my scripting. I still do my visualization and I put myself now, I also make choices from it already being here. It already being done. So you ask yourself in this process, let’s say you want you have digestive issues. You have irritable bowel. And you’ve been over and over and over again. Now, the faith part, right? Most people say Martha, that’s crazy. I’ll say, well, see it as if it’s not here.
Act as if it’s not here. What thoughts would you have if you didn’t have IBS? Who would you be? What would you do, where would you go with foods would you eat? How would you behave? You have to start practicing the faith of it already being done in what most people are doing is they are continuing to go to naturopaths and doctors and have this rigid control over their bodies on their diet and gluten free in this free and that free, that’s not seeing it done. That’s not seeing it whole. That’s not seeing yourself in your divine state. Of complete health and well-being, that is continuing to put band aids on the symptoms and the solution. Now, I don’t say that you don’t have to manage your physical body. But you do have to make an effort to practice what it would be like without having those symptoms. You have to see and have faith in the fact that your body can be completely whole and healed and you have to start seeing that and it’s not what most people are doing.
They think it’s all is one of my friends says rainbows and unicorns, right? This is all just wiki whoo, airy fairy, you can’t get there from here. They couldn’t be more wrong. So that third step is a task is in the process is to accept the desire as fulfilled, except that your body is healed and whole. For it is to realize our oneness with source until the feeling of fulfillment comes to us. Again, like I said, I do this in my visualizations and in my stillness practices. And that’s what I teach people to do. And it works.
I can’t tell you how many times people who have really been desperate within a couple of weeks. They’re on their path. Just for making that one change. When we realize when we really focus and put our heart in energy and feelings and emotions into the idea that we are sovereign beings and our birthright is that there is divine order in our bodies and in our bodies know how to be well. Evidenced by the fact that there is order in the universe, we think we are living in chaos, but we are not. The big dipper, the north star, they are in the same place in the sky every single night. Your heart beats, your breath moves. There is order. And you have to learn to tap into that belief system. And that energy within inside yourself and that is what brings you to this sense of your oneness with your sovereign body and healing and health and well-being. And you get the feeling that it is true and real.
That is the feeling of fulfillment. And it is an actual palatable feeling. If you practice us. So we’re also goes on to say faith is the realization that all good is in instant manifestation. If our prayers were not answered, if our needs were not met before we prayed, there would be no point in praying. So he mentions that Jesus said, again, you know, don’t get hung up on the religion. Before you call, I will answer and while you are speaking, I will hear whatever needs to be done is already done, whatever is needed is already supplied. Now let me ask you a question. How often do you feel that? How often do you believe that? How often do you invest all of your energy in that?
And what most people are doing is they’re focused on the symptoms. And even outside of healing, this applies very much to prosperity and abundance. During the times, when I was really struggling and I was in lack and scarcity mindset, I’d go focus on my bank account, but I was focusing on what it is I didn’t want. Instead of seeing and visualizing and having gratitude and saying thank you it is done. Thank you it is done. Thank you. And that is exactly what I did to get out of that state in that place. I had to defy all logical, rational things that I was looking at, like I had to abandon. We have to abandon what seems to be evidence what seems to be logical rational.
No, I’m not saying you sit and you say I’m a millionaire. I’m a millionaire. And then you have no money in the bank. You can not just visualize you do have to take action. Faith is active. So you bring in these four processes. Did you start to take action from that faith? There’s that saying God can only do for you what he can do through you. You don’t get to just sit back and, you know, it’s like the man of our dreams is not going to just knock on the front door. You have to take action. The job isn’t just going to build itself. The meal. I always like to say the meal isn’t going to cook itself. You can sit and visualize this 7 course Gourmet meal.
You either know how to cook and you go to the store and you buy the things and you make it, or you order it, or you get someone to take you out. But there is action involved. But you have to have faith before you take the action, otherwise you’re just taking action from fear. So Russell goes on to say there’s no life apart from source. There is no power apart from source. There’s no substance apart from source. There is no health apart from source. There is no being apart from source. There is only one mind life power substance in love in which we live and move and have our being. When we get the realization of this truth, the whole outer world changes
This is what faith is. That we are a part of and it is in us and moving as us and through us. We are source. We are intelligent substance. What we want is already here. We would not have the desire, whether it’s business or relationships, the well-being, it’s already here. But what most of us do is we focus on it not being here, the lack of it being here. So we are putting our faith in circumstances instead of truth. Which is why people aren’t healing, and they aren’t creating the transformation that they want. They’re focused on the opposite. They’re putting their faith in circumstances. They’re putting their faith in on my bank account only has $10 in it. Instead of no, it’s actually already here. How would I be being and what would I be doing and behaving and thinking? If the $10,000 I wanted was already here.
If I was in faith and I knew that it was already here, would I be staring checking in panic and fear at my bank account? Would I be waking up every day having thoughts if my body and my house was already here and I was unshakable in its ability to be healthy, would I be focused on fearful lack of health? Discordant factors are harmonized problems are solved difficult tasks are made easier, diseases are healed. The tenor of our lives becomes harmonious. Faith acts on the level of our consciousness. Consciousness, our life is a state of consciousness. And there’s a state of awareness. So he goes on to say nothing can come to us except as consciousness, consciousness is all that we are, all that we are aware of and all that we believe.
Think about that. All that we are aware of all that we believe and all that we are, so what’s required to make this faith active is to change what we believe about illness because we have been programmed to believe that our bodies are going to break down and turn against us. We have been programmed to believe in illness by the pharmaceutical companies and the AMA. Our consciousness is what will drive our belief and faith in we are a part of this source consciousness, the one mind life power substance and love that first of all, this is what we are, we have to become aware of it, which many are not. We’re not raised to believe that. So to make faith active, are you willing to open up two different belief because if you are struggling right now to make a change, the only thing that is missing is a shift in your awareness and your beliefs. And being open to something new, we add to that consciousness or we take from consciousness with every experience.
And Russell says the level of our consciousness determines our faith, and that level of faith is of our own making. Is our level of making so I can’t tell you how many times someone has said to me like that’s crazy. You can’t believe that way. You can’t think that way. When I had cancer, right? That’s crazy. You can’t, you know, nobody in their right mind would turn down a doctor’s care if they had cancer. Nobody in their right mind would go against anything that a doctor might say. Okay, I’ll tell you how many times I’ve heard that we’re programmed. That is a level of consciousness that that doctor knows more than you do.
Which, let’s face it, they call it a medical practice because they are practicing too. So do you want to believe that you are a part of a higher sovereign framework and network of energy and love in light that your body is already healed or do you want to continue to stay at the level of this is caused by something else outside of me and the answers outside of me or can you are you willing to shift your awareness in your consciousness to there’s this there might be something to this. I could change my consciousness in my beliefs about what’s possible and what my body really is and what it’s made of and how illness is created. And I could have faith that it actually is possible for me and I know how to do it. Or I can learn how to do it.
The level of our consciousness determines our faith and that level of faith is of our own making faith is the starting point of every affirmation prayer and treatment, but without recognition of it as evidence of source within without awareness of the closeness of our relationships to source without acceptance of this promise without realization of the omnipresent intelligent substance that’s in and through everything in the universe, it’s likely to end as wishful thinking, daydreaming, or mere desire. Which is where most people are at in their trying to create and manifest. They do not have unwavering faith. They have not learned how to practice actively faith and to actually feel it in their being in their body. What is so important in this process of faith is that there is no room and no place for negation, and so you have to catch yourself when you have the fearful negative thoughts, which that’s what a negation is.
That’s your entering your adding in something that is disbelief into your field, your energy, your spirit, and your being. Really, this is the work of healing and transformation, is to remove those programs remove those thoughts and to be focused consistently, not on the negation of what it is that you want, but on the actual success and attainment that you are restored to your natural state. So we’re not trying to get something it’s already here. Your house, your well-being, your desire, your relationships, whether it’s physical, mental, emotional, a house, a car, well-being, whatever it is that you want to manifest, the fact that you have a desire for it, it is already here. In the spiritual plane. It is faith, actively, that will bring it to you.
The faith is what will remove the obstacles, blocks, and barriers that is in the way. So what you will practice is allowing source and as energy to become a living pulsating presence within you. It becomes as real to you as your best friend or a member of your family. When you realize that this essence that source is not in one place, like it’s over there and you’re here, that’s not what it is. As I said, it’s in and through every living thing. So people are trying to get to something, source is not in one place and then you’re in another. You are it. It’s already in you. You just have to stop the resistance and then negation and the programming that has you believing that it’s not here. When you believe that your desire is already fulfilled, believe that what you are asking for is already yours and you have put your faith to work, you will see it manifested in your experience. There is nothing on earth that you can not heal.
