Manifesting Miracles

Manifest a miracle. Remove your doubt and judgment smeared specs and replace them with clean and clear visual enhancing glasses.  When you change how you see things, everything you see changes. Live in miracle mindedness.

At the moment, I am looking at a bumper sticker perched on top of my bedroom mirror to remind me of what it is that we are capable of. It was given to me by a friend named Rod who is indeed a Miracle Maven. He knows that miracles are everywhere and not dependent on external circumstances. Various faith traditions have their own perspective on this phenomenon. says:  “A miracle, derived from the old Latin word miraculum meaning “something wonderful”, is a striking interposition of divine intervention by a supernatural being in the universe by which the ordinary course and operation of Nature is overruled, suspended, or modified.”


Baker’s Dictionary of the Bible defines a miracle as “an event in the external world brought about by the immediate agency or the simple volition of God.” has this to offer:
an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.
such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God
a wonder; marvel.
a wonderful or surpassing example of some quality: a miracle of modern acoustics.
A Course In Miracles refers to a miracle as a ‘shift in perception’.  I like to view it as a re-framing.  Call to mind a favorite painting, drawing or photograph in your home. Then imagine the frame that is holding it in place.  Is it simple or ornate? Does it enhance or detract from the image it surrounds? How do you feel when you look at it?
Now vizualize a different frame.  What color, texture, substance?  How does the image now appear to you?  Same picture, different context.
Think about the miracles you have already experienced in your life and those you wish to witness. My sense about it is that a miracle need not be dramatic, bringing with it bells and whistles and lightning flashes across the sky. It is as simple as feeling your own heart beat, looking into the eyes of a loved one, healing a relationship, taking a leap into the unknown or watching the flickering light of a candle that illuminates darkness.
Although people consider this a season of miracles, I ask…. relegate it to only one time a year?  What if we are called on to recognize miracles as our Divine inheretance and give thanks for them even before we see them unfold?

    Life is a miracle isn’t it? I sometimes look at my hand with awe, that an infinite creative could imagine such intricacy. There is so much we take for granted that is awe inspiring. From the place of awe, like gratitude, I move with light in the world, expecting the miraculous, looking for it. And what we seek we find!
