Are you ready for a miracle in your life?
Ready as you can be?
I was introduced to Patti LaBelle’s rendition of the song Are You Ready for a Miracle? when it was included in the soundtrack for the movie Leap of Faith (an oldie but a goodie starring Steven Martin.).
Yes, Patti – I believe in miracles, and I’m ALWAYS ready for one!
I also believe that anyone reading this post either believes in miracles or hopes they exist.
One recent study showed that nearly 80% of Americans believe in miracles.
When we bring up the subject of miracles in the B&C Facebook community, the number of believers in miracles is always high (I’m talking 99% or more believe), and we always hear from many people who say, “I need a miracle now.”
When life gets tough … tough beyond what we think we can handle on our own … we reach out for miracles. We plead …
- Let this illness pass over me or my loved one
- Give me a way to provide for myself and my family
- Bring me someone to love
- Help me get out of this situation that’s causing such intense pain
- Protect my loved ones from the harm they’re subjecting themselves to
We may each have a different view of what constitutes a miracle. To me, a miracle requires Divine intervention to bring about something I feel unable to manifest without help.
I know I’ve received miracles in my life that I recognized, and I suspect others occurred that I didn’t notice yet from which I still benefited.
I did some pretty stupid stuff when I was younger, and somehow I escaped harm. I’ve also been pretty low … desperately sad, broke, and lonely low … and somehow, the pain always lifted, even when I didn’t see a way up and out of it.
I’ve come to understand that I can participate in miracles … for myself and others. I can expect miracles, but I realize I can’t lay hands and cure someone. I can’t walk on water. And I can’t turn water into wine … though I’d be the most popular person at the party if I could. No, that’s not what I mean by miracle.
I can participate in bringing into existence something that did not seem even remotely possible, and so can you.
If You Want a Miracle in Your Life, Be Prepared to Participate in Its Unfolding
So, if we can participate in the unfolding of miracles, what’s the catch? What do we have to do? What’s it going to cost us?
I’ve come up with a list of five things that I’ve seen do the trick, and the cost is simply some positive action on your part. It takes discipline and mindfulness to put these into practice in your life, but there’s nothing on the list that you can’t do.
1. Be Grateful for Everything
Gratitude deserves all the positive buzz it gets. It’s a life-changer, but can gratitude produce miracles? Uh-huh, yup, it can.
Here’s why: when you’re grateful for what’s coming your way, your entire energy changes. You become a light in the darkness. You shift your perspective from scarcity to abundance. You bring forth more Divine blessings because you’re tuned into the giving nature of The Creator of everything.
Now here’s the catch: How much can you be grateful for? Can you be grateful for the big stuff and all the details that make your life better? Unexpressed gratitude = absence of true gratitude, so commit right now to starting a radical gratitude practice.
Start expressing gratitude for the people who grew the food on your plate. Be grateful for the fact that there IS. food on your plate.
Express thanks for the power that keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Be thankful for clean water, soft breezes, songbirds, and winter’s transition into spring.
Give thanks for your capacity to think and love and solve problems.
Be thankful for your fingers and elbows and that nose that you’d always wished was a different shape.
Be grateful for not getting that dream job (that you desperately wanted) because you understand that another door that’s even better for you will open.
Be grateful for the wonderful parents or other friends and other relatives you were given, even if some weren’t so wonderful. Be grateful for what you learned.
Can you still be grateful for the time you had with a loved one even if that time was cut short because they were called to transition to the next life? Yes, I know you prayed for a miracle that they would live, and yet they died … can you still hold gratitude in your heart anyway?
The more gratitude you feel and express … the more things you find to be grateful for … the more you’ll receive to be grateful for. When you live in a state of gratitude, people, opportunities, and blessings miraculously show up in your life.
2. Stop Using “I Don’t Know What to Do” As an Excuse to Do Nothing
Man, oh man, do I wish I’d have understood this lesson earlier in life. Just because you don’t know exactly what to do does not mean you should sit around and do nothing.
When you take a positive step in your life … ANY positive step … a way forward will appear. Don’t be surprised if the positive step you take leads to something that’s completely unrelated to the action you took.
For example, clear out the clutter in your house, and you may find something that was once unclear about what to do in your career is now crystal clear. Take a course to build a new skill, and you may end up meeting someone who becomes a dear friend for the rest of your life. Begin a new exercise habit; get healthier, and you will find that your confidence soars in other areas of your life.
According to Barton Goldsmith, Ph.D., “taking positive actions changes your life.”
Positive action nets positive rewards. The more positive action you take, the more you are rewarded. I assure you, being proactive is a miracle-producing move you want to take now!
3. Step Out of Your Routine
You may have heard the expression, “if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” There’s a lot of truth to that saying.
We all have to be willing to step out of our routines … broaden our horizons … bust through comfort zones. Sure, you might experience some bumps and bruises along the way, but ultimately bravery is rewarded.
Miracles are not beyond your grasp, but you may need to extend your reach to receive the miracles you’ve been longing for.
4. Help Others Receive the Miracles TThey’rePraying For
Those clothes you’re longer wearing or that extra bed you’re not using could be a miracle to someone else. Your kind words and encouragement could give someone the confidence they need to go after and get a job they really need. That effort you took to help an underprivileged child get an education could transform a life forever. You get the idea.
It’s a scientific fact that helping others has transformative power for both the giver and receiver.
As an added bonus, when you do things to help others receive their miracles, you get to experience the pure bliss of being a giver. That’s pretty miraculous gift to give yourself!
5. Trust in Your Higher GPS
Imagine that you’re in Pensacola, Florida and you’re trying to get San Diego, California. You set your car’s GPS to map out the destination, and then you question its advice every step of the way. Instead of going left, you go right. Instead of going west, you go north. After a little while, you mute the GPS because you’re tired of hearing it bark, “re-calculating.”
In a few days time, you expected to be in San Diego, and instead, you’re in Washington state near the Canadian border.
We all have an inner knowing in us … a Divine GPS, if you will … that can help us get where we want to go. When we listen to our intellectual mind instead of that inner guidance system, we get turned around and off course.
It may seem confusing and unfair that the intellect that helped us navigate our lives thus far appears to betray us at some point in our life. Yet Divine wisdom trumps our human minds every single time … in that there are no exceptions.
Your Higher GPS is not in your mind … it’s in your heart … it’s your soul. When you tune into it and trust what it tells you, you invite miracles into your life.
So What Will You Do Differently Now that You Understand You Can Manifest Miracles Through Your Thoughts and Actions?
Now that you know five ways to actively participate in manifesting miracles, what will you do differently?
It’s of little use to have this knowledge if you don’t put the ideas into practice.
Chances are, you probably already knew that everything on this list was a good idea anyway.
Hopefully, you have an even greater appreciation of what adopting these new thoughts and actions can do for you. This is your reminder to make different decisions now.
