In my new book I have an exercise where we create a faith statement. Perhaps you’ve already done this while reading The Universe Has Your Back — but if you haven’t, then I want to share this opportunity with you right now.
I believe that creating a faith statement is imperative to trusting that we’re being guided. This statement is about what our spiritual relationship means to us on a gut level.
The practice of creating a faith statement goes like this. If we want to co-create with the Universe, we need a great amount of faith in our connection to it. So the exercise begins with a question:
What would your life be like if you knew you were being guided?
Take a moment to write down the answer. There is no right or wrong answer — write down whatever comes to mind. You can pause the video and free-write right now.
Next, answer this question: What would you do differently if you knew the Universe had your back? Again, press pause, free write, and come back.
Then answer this: Do you have spiritual proof that the Universe is in fact guiding you?
For instance, throughout the book I share people’s stories of when they noticed or realized that the Universe was supporting them.
If nothing springs to mind, that’s totally fine! (If you’re new to this whole co-creating thing, you likely have never even thought to pay attention.) If that’s the case, just use a story from the book that resonated with you — like when I kept getting my sign during my house hunt, for example. Or maybe you have a friend who’s shared stories of synchronicity that are proof to you that the Universe guides us.
Even if it’s not directly related to you today, you can lean on the guidance other people have received and strengthen your faith.
Feel the faithful energy that the story, whatever one you thought about/wrote down, ignites. Take a few moments to tap into the feeling of that faith. Then answer: How does it feel to be in faith? What does faith give you the freedom to do and be?
Again, press pause and make a list. Get honest! Don’t hold back. Let it flow.
Now you’re ready to create your faith statement. We want to make a faith statement that ignites love and joy and enthusiasm and excitement when we read it.
Here’s mine, which I also include in the book:
I know that the Universe is an ever-present energy field of love. I know that when I align with the energy of love through thoughts, actions and beliefs, I am given infinite support and guidance. I know that I can co-create my reality with this loving presence so that I can live in joy and spread light.
Now it’s your turn!
Revisit all the answers that you wrote down and free-write your faith statement. Start with “I know” or “I believe.” Let it move through you. Trust it. Don’t edit a word.
When you’re done writing, read what you’ve written. Take out the 3 or 4 sentences that move you to tears — that is your faith statement.
I hope that once you’ve written your faith statement, you come back here and share it in the comments. I would love to read what you create. And it’s so powerful to read other people’s faith statements! When you’re ready, come back and share yours with everyone here.
I hope this serves you, and I cannot wait to see your faith on the page.
