Why I Still Believe in Santa Claus: Part 5Finally, I offer this bit of evidence, the video story of a woman whose faith brought snow on Christmas to a Tex Mex border town where it hadn't snowed at all in 109 years, and never on Christmas, and who healed her husband's heart just by the power of her belief.
Watch this video (it's right on top of the page, but you have to get through a movie trailer first) and then meet me back here and we'll talk.
When I shared this story on my Facebook Page, one person commented that she didn't believe God would make it snow for one person, and asked what about all the other prayers that are not answered.
What she wasn't seeing is the deeper truth here. The woman's faith was what made it snow, and what healed her husband. Her belief that it could and would happen for her is what created it. Yes, God did it; because we, each and every one of us, are God. And when any one of us has an unwavering belief that something must happen, then it can't fail to happen for us.
God is not a separate being who grants some wishes and denies others. God is the creative force from which we all sprang, of which we are all a part. We humans are the eyes, ears, voices and hands of God. Our prayers are answered according to how strongly we believe that, how clearly aware of it we are, how in tune, how connected, how doubtless. Not only does every mystic tradition teach this, but even Jesus said, "Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
Faith. Belief. Expectation. Focus. These are what determine our experiences in life. If we can believe in anything strongly enough for long enough, it has to become our reality. And if we cross over (croak) before some of our stuff arrives, that's okay. We create it instantaneously on the other side.
So in my reality, in my world, in my experience, Santa is real because I am creating my reality and I say so. :)
