The technology of Faith

Exercise your faith
I mean it literally now. Faith as an exercise can be applied by a series of truth statements. Faith is the practice of standing in a pure conviction and firm belief even in the face of contrary evidence, or circumstances that say other from what you want to experience.
The sage said “faith without works is dead,” because your works prove your faith. Or in other words, you don’t have to say what you believe or ‘believe in.’ Your life is a walking, talking, living, breathing demonstration of your faith. Your life experience shows what you believe is true and possible. Faith is an advanced and complex technology for manifesting or ‘making-real’ the dreams of your heart.

Faith is the science of spirit and as such is technology that can be applied to your life to make something better happen or bring something useful into being.
I went to http://www.dictionary.com for a definition on technology and could see that faith is indeed technology. Let’s look at the definition for technology below:

“1. the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science. … a scientific or industrial process, invention, method, or the like.
2. the application of this knowledge for practical ends”
Based on this definition I can clearly say that if faith is not a powerful technology then I don’t know what is. In fact it is so powerful a technology that even those who have created the most powerful science based technologies on earth had to use the technology of faith to achieve or accomplish it.

Why then are many so skeptical about Faith? In some quarters it falls under the umbrella of discipline and perseverance and scientific/academic rigor. And yet, without that simple ability to perceive and believe in something being possible and holding to it with conviction, nothing is created. Nothing is possible. A rose by any other name is still a rose. No? It is the technology of faith that makes all things possible. It is the technology of faith that brings things into existence.
So let me rewrite that definition of technology to define the technology of faith.

FAITH IS:
1. the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of spiritual-mental-emotional means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as the art of visualisation, emotional engineering, applied mental science, and pure spirit. … a creative, scientific process, invention, method, or the like.
2. the application of this knowledge for practical ends”
So here’s to Applying the technology of FAITH, by using a simple technique of statements and questions. They are Reminders that help you shut down the so called logical brain by exposing how illogical it is. Anything that has ever been done by anyone can be done by everyone. Or as Marcus Garvey put it: ‘Whatsoever things common to man, that man has done, man can do.’

When you need to activate or exercise your faith dig up some questions about your beliefs and question your disbelief. Use statements that help you clarify how ridiculous it is to doubt, when life has show how seemingly impossible things are being accomplished everyday. Why not for You? Here are some of the statements I use to help me stay in the ENERGY OF FAITH:

Statements.
1. There is always a way.
2. There is always an easier, better way.
3. I have access to the way ( even though/if I don’t exactly know what it is now).
4. I don’t have to know the way for it to be real.
5. I don’t have to know the way it works for it to work.
6. Something like this has been done before or I would never even have got a vision of this possibility.

Questions
1. Why not me?
2. Who are the people doing impossible things along this line and what are their obstacles?
3. What would __________ do?

Those statements and questions are therefore part of my faith practice. Create your own. Exercise your faith today. Everyday. MW AH Michael Holgate
