Measure It In Miracles

Abracadabra ....writing a Beliefnet Bliss Blog article connected with this picture.

I was inspired by two Facebook postings today and both were so good that I wanted to combine them in one Bliss Blog. The first came from Arielle Ford and the second  from Katrina Mayer. Both are inspiristas  who have a broader view of how life can be and each one encourages readers to live from the heart, dream big, daring to ask for what they desire and are willing to support people in seeing their vision through. Kind of like someone else I know intimately.

Arielle had a lovely magic wand image in hers and invited friends to ask for a wish to be granted with her charged up instrument and Katrina offered: “Don’t measure the day in minutes. Measure it in miracles.” Both are unbeatable and yet, how often are we willing to boldly request what we desire without the monkey mind squawking at us about unworthiness to receive or unlikelihood of our wishes becoming physical reality? I know I face that gremlin every day and still I cast more intentions out there than just about anyone I know. It’s kind of like when you are planting a garden. You never know which seeds will take root and grow in the fertile soil, so you plant a bunch rather than a few.  Mine take the form of creating a loving, sustainable, healthy, fun, safe, growing relationship with a Life Partner who will do the transformational work with me that I so adore doing and for which I welcome wonderful compensation.

When I contemplate the concept of miracles, I am brought back to what A Course in Miracles defines as a ‘shift in perception’.  Whenever I change my thoughts, I am literally changing my mind (altering the way it operates) and sometimes it really IS like changing a poopy diaper. The first miracle of the day arrived when my eyes beheld the sun streaming in through my curtains, and my mind was actually working well enough to write something articulate pre-6 a.m. Another showed up in the form of a healthy, strong body that had a blast doing my ‘playout’ at the Planet Fitness, yet another when an opportunity arose to write for another venue and still another when I contemplate my radio show tonight. Now, in the grand scheme of things, those don’t sound like over the top razzle dazzle activities. For me, a miracle is anything for which I am grateful, before, during and after which means that I am experiencing them 24/7.

The photo above includes a magic wand that my friend Peggy gave me when I left my full time job a year ago at an inpatient psychiatric hospital. As I thanked her, I asked playfully if she couldn’t have given it to me while I was still working there, since it would have come in handy. These days, I take it with me as a prop for workshops I teach. Feel free to use it to make your wishes come true…abracadabra! Wishing you miracles ordinary and extraordinary <3
