If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
I would like to share The Five Steps of Faith, which have helped me live life as an awakened, powerful woman.
For 25 years I suffered from low self-esteem, addiction to alcohol and failed relationships. I was so tied to painful and embarrassing moments that suffering became part of my identity. Every day I woke up consumed with fear, guilt and anxiety over how I would face the future. I had no idea that there was a choice available to me about how I could feel. I was living in a dark hole and I did not know how to get out.
One day I realized that I could not pick up another drink or I would probably die in the near future. After a few months of sobriety, I started regularly praying or meditating. Before long, I was writing. After each period of silence and prayer, the most amazing messages came to me! The first one I received told me that I would be fine and have an amazing life. I had lessons to learn and when I mastered my lessons, I would need to go and teach others what I had learned.
Now, 23 years later, I am still meditating and writing down the messages I get. I have since called them “Soul Notes”. They are definitely a communication from a higher consciousness. These beautiful messages have instructed me to teach The Five Steps of Faith to women in need. I know that this is the greatest lesson I have learned in my life, which I now share with you. This remarkable formula is the foundation for personal transformation.
- Focus: Go within yourself daily and tap into the divine consciousness that you have through prayer or meditation.
- Acceptance: If you can accept what has happened in your life, you free yourself from the past which no longer serves you. You are then able to develop a new attitude that will empower you in the present.
- Intentions: When you set an intention, it has soul behind it rather than “wishing” for something to happen. You must identify what those intentions are.
- Thoughts: It has been discussed in detail in many works, the power of your thoughts. Since you can only hold one thought at a time, why not make it a good one?
- Healing and Helping: Once you begin to heal, to hold on to that power you must now turn and give it away to others. Teach them what you have learned.
Having studied these steps for some time now, I realize that no matter whom you look to as a luminary in the self-help arena, their work is somehow reflected in these steps. They are so simple and easy to do as well as tremendously effective.
If you commit to doing this simple but powerful process, you can transform your life, become the deliberate creator of everything you want. Suddenly, you have a vision and a passion for what you want to do. The fear that held you back dissolves and a new self -knowingness emerges. Faith has given you an affirmative mental approach to create your reality. You are able to become an awakened human being.
