There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.
What is a Miracle?
The dictionary defines a miracle as an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs. A miracle is some outstanding or unusual event, thing or accomplishment that the laws of nature cannot explain and is assumed to be an act of God or supernatural in origin. People see miracles in the survival of an incurable illness or an escape from some life-threatening situation, yet they don’t .attend to the miracles that are all around them.
The ‘new reality’ is that we—all of us—have the ability to create miracles and that their occurrence in our lives happens and can happen more frequently than we think. They happen through both natural and normal circumstances and can begin to take place more easily as we learn how to expect and anticipate them. We can encourage the arrival of miracles and recognize them daily.
Blind to Miracles:
Why is it we have difficulty recognizing the existence of miracles in our life? It’s more about perception than vision. Your mind filters your reality which is necessary so you won’t be so bombarded by information that your mind can’t use or fathom. Our preconceived ideas of reality and hence the unlikely occurrence of miracles are what our minds accept. So if you don’t expect to see a miracle, it’s likely that you won’t. It’s as if your mind and your reality are cooperating together to bring to you what you believe and anticipate.
Quantum Physics & Miracles:
Quantum Physics has astonished many non-believers with its findings about our reality and about matter. Once we thought that matter had some kind of permanency to it, but that’s been proven false. Instead, matter responds to our minds and our thoughts. The observer—you— has the ability to affect matter and change it.
Open to Miracles:
How do you gain the necessary control to begin to create and witness the increasing number of miracles in your life? If you can learn to shift your focus to believe and be open to the occurrence of miracles, you’ll bring them into your realm. First, let’s recognize the miracles that we often tend to overlook that already exist: the amazing ability that your mind has to expand and be creative, your breath, birth, the miracle of your beating heart, and your miraculous body with its ability to heal, the profound miracle of love that can transform us and life. No longer is it acceptable to view yourself through the eyes of a victim. You have the ability to shift that belief and recognize your own measure of influence that’s very powerful and grows as you believe it to be so.
Are You Ready? Are you ready to embrace miracles? Begin by appreciating and treasuring the miracles that are already present that you easily dismissed. Decide now to live as though everything about you and life is a miracle.
Be as a child taking in each new experience or mundane experience with new eyes— new perception. When you do, you open to appreciation for all of you and all that you behold. Today you have a choice to view everything as a miracle and bask in the gratitude of it all.
