Today’s card is “Faith in the Process” from the Sacred Rebels Oracle by Alana Fairchild. My first thought was about how we have to have faith in ourselves when we want to bring about change; change in ourselves or in our circumstances. It often depends on how much confidence we have and how much willpower and inner strength we can muster if we are going to be able to fight our battles and be victorious in the end.
But then I realized the woman was sitting on her knees in that little cart: hands folded, head bowed and praying. This card is not about our ego’s managing it all by itself . No, it is about when we are at our wits end how hard we try, nothing is changing at all. This card is about believing in something more than our ego. It is about trusting that all things can work together for the good of us. This can be very difficult to grasp, especially when when we seem to be stuck in some downward spiral or when we find ourselves lost in the desert of our souls. There and then is when we learn about Faith. In those desperate times we bend our head and we find relieve in knowing we don’t have to go through all of this on our own. It can be God/dess, it can be Spirit or your Higher self, or any other force who can lift you up, set you on your feet again and encourages you to move own. Yes sometimes we just need Someone to pull our cart a little further, just over that bump in the road. Maybe the best part of this experience is that we might remember to have faith also during the good times.
“Faith is seeing light with your heart when all you eyes can see it darkness.”
