What Is Faith?

Faith is a belief in things unseen. All things are possible if one has faith. Jesus said that if we had faith the size of a mustard seed, we could move mountains. I do not believe that he meant that statement to be a metaphor, and its sentiment applies regardless of your particular brand of spirituality.

To illustrate this, three particular stories come to mind. First, I remember hearing about a French journalist who witnessed a demonstration in Tibet during the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. He watched as lines of Buddhist priests formed, playing horns and beating drums. Many were chanting, all were pointed at a specific place at the foot of a mountain, clearly anticipating something. As the journalist looked on, huge boulders began to rise off the ground and moved, and an apparition manifested.

I also recall a passage from the Bible when Jesus healed somebody. In response to that person’s gratitude, Jesus said simply, “Your faith has saved you.”

Finally, there is an anecdotal story that circulates throughout the hypnosis community about a terminal cancer patient who was given an experimental drug which was touted as a miracle cure for cancer. He was one of the test subjects. He responded immediately and went into remission. But, before he even left the hospital, he stumbled into a newspaper article that suggested that the drug was not as effective as previously hoped. His cancer began to grow again. The doctor picked up immediately on his patient’s suggestibility, and one day in desperation, he entered the man’s room with a syringe of a newer experimental cancer cure. He created for the patient a whole explanation of the drug’s benefits and research results. He injected the drug and within days his patient’s cancer went into complete remission. This time he actually left the hospital, apparently cured. The drug was saline. The patient eventually did die of cancer, but that occurred much later.

Today, the American Medical Association admits that 50% of all allopathic treatments, medications, even surgeries, involve the placebo effect. It all comes down to the power of the mind. Doubt and faith are mutually exclusive. One is either pregnant or not pregnant. One has faith or one does not have faith. Every psychic on this board has faith in their skills or they would be rendered ineffective.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So here is the image. I gave this picture once to a close friend, as a goodbye gift. The picture was of a woman doing a swan dive off the edge of a mountain top. In the picture she was already airborne, committed. Below her one could see only clouds. The script below the scene was FAITH. Dive deep!

How has your faith served you? Do you have doubts? Talk about it and see what the psychics have to say!
