Miracles and the Soul

Sit quietly for just a moment. Focus on your heart center. Fill it with all the love you can possibly feel. Continue to fill that space with all of the expressions of love – forgiveness, gratitude, compassion, joy, peace, prosperity, vibrant health. You have just experienced a miracle!

According to A Course In Miracles, “miracles occur naturally as expressions of love”. Miracles are happening all the time, everywhere to everyone, but our perception of daily life blocks the idea of a miracle occurring. It is only when someone is rescued from death, instantly healed, or receives unexpected abundance that we declare a miracle. In awe, we speak of the event, as though it is an unnatural or abnormal occurrence. In those times when we forget our humanness and allow the Spirit of God to take control, miracles happen. In truth, miracles are not meant to bring awe, but to inspire gratitude and healing to areas of your life where you feel lack and fear.

All of us have the ability to provide miracles, through our forgiveness of others and ourselves. When we fill a need in the life of another, pour love out to the world without condition, or finally accept our own holiness, we have been a co-creator in a miracle.

We are all expressions of the miracle of life. Those who have children, feel the miracle at the birth of their children. At birth, we are still able to feel and know the soul of this new physical body. Life has not erased their memory. The love and trust that emanates from this little being, allows our soul to connect to theirs and unconditional love forms an eternal bond.

Each of us, created as miracle, cannot lose that essence, even with age. As we grow older and begin to see, feel and hear the beliefs and paradigms of our care-givers, we lose touch with the inner guidance and knowing. We are told what is right and wrong. We are told what to do "for our own good". We are disciplined for certain behaviors, and congratulated for others. Most of these decisions are based on the beliefs of our parents and grandparents.

When we see our angels and guides and tell the adults in our life, they are called imaginary friends. We lose faith in what we see and faith in ourselves for believing that these loving beings exist. It is here we begin to lose our faith in love, in our creator, in ourselves. The miracles are gone.

Yet where do we get the strength to rescue someone from a burning building, pull a child out of the way of a moving vehicle, carry someone for miles to safety? What is this voice that comes in the instant of danger and seemingly changes a traffic pattern, so we avoid an accident? How do we know not to take a specific route, a particular flight? How do we know that today is not a good day to go work and later find their has been a threat to life during the time we would have been on the subway, at the bank or in our office building? How do healing miracles occur?

We need only look to our soul, and believe once again in "imaginary friends" to find the answer.

Sit quietly for just a moment. Focus on your heart center. Fill it with all the love you can possibly feel. This itself is a miracle and a way to return to the innocence and trust of a child. With that unconditional love miracles are an everyday, normal occurence. Life becomes a new adventure, filled with endless possibility?

What miracle will you be today?
