Traditionally, miracles have been thought of as extraordinary events, happenings and healings that produce a sense of awe and wonder. They seem beyond human abilities. In this age of New Thought, miracles can realistically be understood as natural expressions of Unconditional Love. And, the best part is, everyone is capable of being a miracle worker. But, in order to do so, you have to change your mind about what constitutes a miracle.
I’ve always liked the line from A Course in Miracles which says, “The use of miracles as spectacles to induce belief is a misunderstanding of their purpose.”
A miracle is actually Loving Light traveling outside of time. What the miracle appears like inside of the space-time continuum is not up to you a course in miracles. The form of the miracle will suit the highest good for all–and that may look very different than we might expect.
Your sincere intention to recognize your true purpose leads to your miracle-readiness a course in miracles online. When you connect this intention with your Inner Teacher, or Higher Power, you become a conduit for Loving Light and its resultant Peace of Mind. This describes what a miracle is, truly.
To produce miracles, we have to get out of our own way. You might think of this as “letting go and letting God.” The idea is that you surrender to a Higher Power. The word “surrender” is used to mean “open.” If you open your mind, you will find you can do everything Jesus did-and more. The form of how miracles move through you will be unique to you. It is not necessary to walk on water, make the blind see, or raise the dead.
In fact, it is unrealistic to expect miracles to pass through you if you think you can dictate what the miracle will be. Let’s say you want to heal yourself of a disease. Or maybe you’re out of work and need employment. Perhaps a loved one is heart-broken over the death of a spouse or a child. Maybe you just drove by a dead animal on the road. It’s possible you’re terribly concerned about the world’s issues: environmental, economic, and political. If you want to work miracles, it is not up to you to predetermine the solutions which may seem obvious to you. That is an unrealistic approach to miracle work.
The realistic way to deal with all of the above problems is to connect your mind with God’s Mind. One way to approach this is to imagine plugging yourself in to God, just as you would plug an appliance into the wall for its energy source. When you “plug in,” you are demonstrating that you are available as a receiver for Unconditional Love to be transmitted through you.
The way to solve worldly problems is by allowing Universal Intelligence to guide you and flow through you. God works in mysterious ways only because we have a limited view. Expand out to God’s perspective and you will see things very differently. If you really want to be a conduit for miracles, don’t tell God what to do. Be realistic and have the grace and humility to accept His help. Only when you connect with Divine Intelligence can there be Divine Intervention.
What have you experienced in your life that has no logical explanation for how it could be? Perhaps you never thought of them as miracles… maybe you explained them as luck or coincidence. They were miracles since coincidence just doesn’t happen. And all miracles are divinely orchestrated. Perhaps it was as simple as a change of plans that felt like an inconvenience yet allowed you to meet someone new who becomes a friend or client. Or maybe you expected several clients that day and all canceled their appointment for various reasons, which gave you an unexpected day to accomplish something else that made you feel really good. Or one time you were driving on the expressway and completely missed your exit. You were fuming because it was making you backtrack, yet while backtracking, you found a wonderful store or restaurant you didn’t know existed but were glad to find.
Pay attention! Miracles abound around you every day if you simply open your eyes to them. The happenings that may seem as if they are messing things up for you often become gifts in seeing something new, most likely miracles. Ask the angels to help you see the miracles in your life clearly. It will make each day exciting as you anticipate the gifts, blessings and miracles that will abound. And don’t forget to say “Thank you” for every one you receive.
Dear friends, believe in miracles because, like GK Chesterton says, “The most astonishing thing about miracles is that they happen.” My wish is that you experience multitudes of miracles every day of your life beginning right now!
