A dear friend/colleague recently asked me to be her miracle making partner. I’m like what is that? I believe and understand that miracles are all around us and all we have to do is look for them, be ethical, think positively about life and things and there they will be, made for us. The universe, when it likes your energy and knows when you are up to good stuff, will gift you miracles but you must be aware and listen for them. Since I like and respect this person, I decided to go for it and see what I might be missing or better yet see what I might be able to create or should I say co-create . I then immediately purchased the book and began following it as precisely as I understood how.
According to Melody, right out of the book, “a miracle is when something happens that we couldn’t control, create, conceive, or do on our own, whether by using willpower, strength, spirituality, skills money or any and all resources. Miracles are not supernatural. They’re how life naturally responds when we practice universal laws, the unwritten rules governing nature, the human psyche, people,spirituality and the world. NO LIMITS EXIST AS TO HOW MANY OR WHAT SIZE MIRACLES, no age limitations exist. The only qualifications for it to be a miracle is that the problem or situation we want changed is beyond our ability to control or fix on our own.’
Are you ready for some changes and to see how really powerful you are? Creating miracles is proactive not reactive. You play a great role n their creation After reading the book I was intrigued. I will tell you that it is simple, and funny how simple it is so don’t read more into it and just let it flow.
It only takes 10 minutes a day if that much.
Please read the book anyway but I will give you the premise and the jist. Remember we are in this together so you are not alone Feel free to connect anytime to firstname.lastname@example.org for support and to share your miracle story. I am happy to share mine as well. I’m an open book.
Here it is, are you ready?
You can do this with a miracle buddy like I am or by yourself. It’s your choice. I like doing it with someone.
Every day for 40 days, and I don’t see myself ever stopping, you write a list of everything you are grateful for or grateful that. That’s it. the list includes everything, all the marvelous things you have but really it also includes, the hurts, the confusions, the frustrations, anger etc. Please listen don’t leave and think this is silly or ridiculous, it’s not. When you apply gratitude to something you are honoring yourself fully, the pain, the hurts, the confusion, the whatever comes up. You honor that part of yourself that you tend to not want to look at for long or that you look at too long.
When you honor your pain or whatever it is you don’t resist it, it does not linger around, you don’t carry it like a dead weight or anchor. The molecules of the thing changes when you apply gratitude to it. Doesn’t that make perfect sense? I promise something bigger starts to happen and facing the pain is loved. That’s when things change. What do you call a miracle? I call it a miracle when I stop a behavior, a habit that was hard to break, when I start doing something different and my results are something I have been waiting for. I call it a miracle when something I thought was so far far away gets closer and closer.
As I took this on I realized how much judgment I had about certain things and as I became grateful that I was feeling this or that I began to be able to deal with it and not suppress it. Now I am onto procrastination and that’s why I am writing this blog. My first blog in months because I have been putting it off and off since having a new website I did not want to deal with it. Now I am and wow this feels like a miracle that I am sitting here today doing this. I also made a lot of calls today to people I love but for some reason was avoiding. When I find out why I will let you know. Maybe I won’t know why I’ll just stop. That too will be a miracle. What I think I am resisting is not as much of an issue as the actual resistance.
When I let go of the judgments I felt this enormous amount of freedom. I am all about freedom so this was another level for me and I am amazed. It’s so simple this project that I can’t believe it works as it does but it does. I think it is from heaven and I am just one of those that listened to the opening, tried it and I am still surprised and in awe at how much a part of the power we are.
What’s logical about it? When you release you create, get things done and that my friends makes perfect sense.
