17 Quotes That Teach Us to Believe in the Unseen

For many people, the trickiest part of the Law of Attraction is learning how to believe in the unseen.  As you probably already know, to manifest something you want, you must first believe that you will have it!  With our smaller goals, finding belief is often very simple simple, but for the big desires it doesn’t always come as easily.  Sometimes our big dreams just seem too inconceivable to have faith in them! 

So, in my work with clients and the Law of Attraction, I have found that many times people want to see before they believe.  In other words, they want proof that the Law of Attraction works before they truly allow themselves to believe in what they really want and let go.  I believe this is fairly common because most of us have been taught to look for evidence and check our facts.  “I’ll believe it when I see it” has become a prevailing mantra in modern society.

So, to help you and my other readers believe in the unseen, I have compiled a series of quotes on belief and faith to reinforce the importance of this concept.  I hope these words give you motivation to establish and maintain confidence in your ability to create whatever you’d like, regardless of what you “see.”

1. “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” –Martin Luther King, Jr.

2. “I had therefore to remove knowledge, in order to make room for belief.” –Immanuel Kant

3. “You need a stubborn belief in an idea in order to see it realised.” –James Dyson

4. “All money is a matter of belief.” –Adam Smith

5. “Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.” –J. R. R. Tolkien

6. “Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.” –William James

7. “It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” –Muhammad Ali

8. “In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t.” –Blaise Pascal

9. “One person with a belief is equal to ninety-nine who have only interests.” –John Stuart Mill

10. “A man of courage is also full of faith.” –Marcus Tullius Cicero

11. “Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.” –Rabindranath Tagore

12. “If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won’t, you most assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.” –Denis Waitley

13. “Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.” –Helen Keller

14. “If fear is cultivated it will become stronger, if faith is cultivated it will achieve mastery.” –John Paul Jones

15. “Belief creates the actual fact.” –William James

16. “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t-you’re right”  –Henry Ford

17. “Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.” –Saint Augustine

    My husband says I’ll believe it when I see it. But he’s got it backward doesn’t he? It’s a hard concept to grasp at first. I’m happy that I keep working on the faith part, the more faith I have the better I can get things going in the right direction.

    Hi Colleen! Yes, so many people say that, don’t they? I’ll admit-I used to be one of them, so I get it. The good news is that believing first gets easier with time 🙂

    I have also heard the phrase “I’ll believe it when I see it” so many times. There are so many countless things that are around even if we can’t hear or see them we know they’re there. You turn on the radio and know you can tune into a variety of stations. You can’t see the radio waves as they are invisible. It’s the same with the law of vibration. You can’t see energy but it’s there. Having absolute faith that you can achieve goals you set your mind to knowing it’s possible will attract positive energy towards you.
