There was a time in my life that I had such disdain for religion that I could not see spirituality because of my association with it in the context of religion. The words faith, hope and trust were meaningless to me. They were words that were given lip service as a child but held no real value and slipped from my vocabulary as an adult. I associated them only with the God of men that I had been raised with. I wanted nothing to do with that God and the rules I had been taught He expected me to live by. The only faith and trust I had was in myself and eventually my husband.
It was not until I reconnected with myself a few years ago that my eyes began to open to a much greater awareness of the universe and the intelligent energy that I now see as Divine. As I explored my inner truth and recognize the source of inspiration I began to see the magic in the energies of faith, hope and trust. These are not just words uttered from memorized biblical quotes, but they are magic words. Those three seemingly valueless words are the energetic action between ask and receive. The energy created with those words open up the abundance of the universe and feed our intentions. They not limited to religion but align with the magic of creation, spirit and universal intelligence.
