the priceless journey home to the heart (part #21 – miracles)
MIRACLES BY DESIGN
We are living in dynamic times of change. We are seeing our thoughts made manifest more rapidly now than ever in the history of man. The question is, what old thoughts are continuing to hold us in “lack, unworthiness and distrust”?
How do we make this SHIFT in thinking to discover our True Purpose here and claim the abundant life we know to be ours? How do we connect to Joy for more than fleeting moments? How did we get so far away from our center? How do we reclaim our balance? How do Miracles Occur? These are just a few of the questions we will explore and share insights into to help you “cross the desert, part the waters and find your promised land.”
What is a miracle and how can we allow it back into our life?
A Miracle is merely a shift in perception from fear to love. And that shift will change your entire life. It is the letting go of your known perceptions and beliefs. It is opening yourself up to a reality that you were not ready to see before.
It is a change in thought and beliefs that hold you in SAMENESS.
I am inspired by the courage of anyone who allows the shattering of their old belief system to enable themselves to walk into new paradigms which appear to be miracles.
What they experience is not miracles but just all of the previously ignored concepts, visions and ideas that were not invited into their awareness at the time. It was always sitting there waiting for you to open up to a new perception and create a new reality.
Spiritual transformation begins with shifting your physical perceptions of what’s real. If you think what you see and hear is all that’s real, you’ll be dictated by the limits of your senses.
Extend your perception beyond what your senses register…to what your heart knows to be true. Be willing to have your eyes opened to the love in any situation, even when with your physical eyes you cannot see it.
That is the miracle beginning. Is there a recipe for a Miracle? It will be executed differently by everyone, but at its core it has to do with several factors. Identifying stuck beliefs that can be released that no longer serve you. Identify your heart’s desire and holding it there lovingly with an all-knowing that it is not only possible, but now probable. It is giving gratitude for your many gifts. It is total surrender to the Universe with a patient application of faith and a belief bigger than any problem your mind can prevent you from realizing…Don’t ask HOW or WHEN. Stay in a state of constant appreciation. Request helpful and consistent doses of GRACE…
The Who – Is you and your Divine Creator working in co-creative partnership
The What – Is the idea carried in your state of constant gratitude, joy and appreciation.
The When, Where and How – Is the domain of the Universe to deliver your desires at its own perfect timing!
The Why – Is the beacon of your Heart and your Soul’s requested journey to “offer you life and to have life abundantly.”
The Miracle appears when you least expect it and need it most to confirm your FAITH. It all comes together in perfect timing!
THE DIVINE PROCESS
DESIRE: DO NOT BE ASHAMED TO SPEAK WHAT WILL YOU HAVE
Law of Supply – “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
Desire without expectation is idle wishing or dreaming. You simply waste much valuable mental energy in doing this. Desire will put you in touch with the inner world of causes and connect you by invisible means with the substance of the thing desired; then, continuous expectation is necessary to bring it into a reality in your life. Much like the pull of gravitation in the physical realm, “expectation” is a drawing force of the mind which acts in the invisible realm.
INTENT: WHAT WILL YOUR DESIRES DIRECT YOU TO CREATE?
“To desire is to expect, to expect is to achieve.”
Now is the time to look at your life one year from now seeing each of your highest choices. Use your Divine Imagination to see yourself already in the position of having, doing and being exactly what you knew you came here to enjoy knowing that failure and struggle do not exist. It is no use to desire a thing unless you expect to get it, either in part or in full.
CLARITY: WHAT ARE THE SPECIFICS?
Look at all of the areas of your life where you are not living up to your highest expectation and desires. Remember, anything less than your highest choice will contain elements of self sabotage.
Begin by looking back over your lifetime.
What are the things you will have wanted to accomplish or experience?
What is YOUR definition of a GREAT life?
What is it you want to be? do? have?
What kind of life do you dream about having?
What kind of life would give you ‘goose bumps’ whenever you think about it?
Write down with great clarity and specificity what you intend and expect to see made tangible in your life. THINK IT, SPEAK IT, COMMIT TO IT, ENVISION IT, BE IT, HAVE IT, ENJOY IT!
Write and create your new vision for yourself based on where you’ll be in one year.
IMAGING/MIND MAPPING: WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
What if you could picture yourself in a new future not based on your old beliefs that would continue to have you create a life that repeats your old patterns of unworthiness, lack, doubt and no trust.
What if you could step out into a future that fulfills your highest calling and allows you to uncover your soul-inspired map which will open the door to new thoughts, actions and choices? You will see what is important and what lights up your heart. You will find the key to that which will compel you to make choices based on who you can be… rather than who you know yourself to be currently, because today you are merely the by-product of all of your accumulated thoughts to date!
FOCUS: OUT-PICTURING WITH DEEP EMOTIONAL CONNECTING TO HAVING
Focus sharpens the intent and directs the magnetizing effect on your desires. The mind is a magnet and attracts whatever corresponds to its ruling state. Whatever we image in mind, whatever we expect and think about, will tend to bring into our lives the things and conditions that are in harmony
The most important thing for you to do is to put your vision in front of you each day to keep it in both your conscious and unconscious awareness.
The secret to Manifesting are these keys:
1. Speak it from your heart knowing that it is not only possible, but already here! (I AM thankful for my…)
2. Speak it Consciously and Creatively (I appreciate having my …)
3. Speak it in the First Person, Present Tense, Personally (I AM now enjoying…)
4. Speak it with Specificity. Invoke all of your SENSES
- Feel it and touch it
- See it and be joyful
- Taste it and hear it
- Smell it
EXAMPLE: (I AM smiling as I now enjoy riding in my bright new metallic blue car with chrome wheels, I hear the windshield wipers beating to the rhythm of my ITunes music in my surround sound speaker system and smell the plush leather interior as I ride comfortably to my new job where my talents are appreciated and respected, etc)
5. Speak it with Aligned Feeling (I AM joyous that I now enthusiastically hold my…)
Use your senses to see yourself in the not to distant NOW moment being, having, and enjoying your new life.
PLACE YOURSELF IN A CONSTANT STATE OF PRAYER:
“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.”
Every thought that we have is actually a prayer being called either consciously or subconsciously into matter. Placing ourselves in a state of constant appreciation, joy and anticipation based on our faith allows us to elevate our vibrational frequency to make our thoughts “more attractive and magnetic”.
Because today will be the first day of the rest of your life, why not begin designing the life of joy that you REALLY want – right here, right now!
All Manifestation begins with IMAGINATION, VISUALIZATION and THOUGHT
Invoking the Higher Chakras (vision, will and grace) will allow you to activate your Dreams and initiate your Imagination.
Invoking the Lower Chakras (need, power, and creativity) allows you to activate your strongest Desires and initiate your Truthful Passion in this lifetime.
Understand that the union point of our DREAMS and DESIRES is the fourth (or Middle Chakra) where our Heart invites our EMOTIONS and our THOUGHTS to unite.
The union of these powerful visions create FEELINGS.
The Heart gives wings to your PASSIONS and DESIRES and DREAMS through FEELING and sends an invisible signal out into the UNIVERSE asking that the PASSIONATE, HEART-FELT DESIRE be matched….hence, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” This is where the Law of Attraction takes over!
THOUGHT (dreams) + EMOTION (desires) + ENVISIONING and SPEAKING creates PASSION (heartfelt feeling)
Repetition and Emoting the feeling of already having your dream realized + Surrender to the Universe = MANIFESTATION
TAKE ACTION, RECORD SUCCESS, and REPEAT:
I’m encouraging you to lay the foundation for your new life. As you move through these exercises, let your passions be your guide! Look at what would be fulfilling to you; what would give you pleasure in life.
In a binder of ruled paper, write each goal, desire, or accomplishment you wish to see (what you choose to be, do or have) in your lifetime. Write each intent on a separate page. Write as quickly as the ideas come to you without analyzing, judging or censoring what’s coming to you. Fill up as many pages as possible. Include desires that may seem unattainable, silly, outrageous or impossible. The key here is NO CENSORING! You want to get outside your ‘box’ and expand your thinking.
Begin a journal of your daily accomplishments and each night before going to sleep, give thanks for the miracles that appeared in your life that day by writing down 5 things you are thankful for (mix this up each night with new things for which your are grateful).
Then shift your focus on those that are still arriving based on your intended vision!
GIVE UNTO OTHERS:
The Law of Receiving says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
It is important that we remember that there is a cause and effect relationship between giving and receiving! After we give, that is not all we must do. Our next step is to prepare to receive the response or results of our giving and to receive, as the Law states, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. This is the most interesting part, because our preparation shows our active faith. Instead of rocking and waiting, we are preparing and working. This, in turn, enlarges our view. It stimulates our interest; it disperses our doubt and fear, and energizes our power of reception.
HOPE, FAITH & BELIEF:
My unshakable belief that I can HAVE, DO AND BE anything my heart desires is the kind of faith that summons amazing miracles. Hope and faith are important, but the essential key to achieving my dreams is this:
BELIEVING it is possible,
BELIEVING it is possible for me,
BELIEVING I deserve it, and
BELIEVING it will happen!
THE MIRACLE PRAYER:
Heavenly Father, Divine Mother, Great and Giving Universal Creator,
All that I ask, and all I claim, is all in Your Honor, and all in Your Name.
Thank You for Your perfect guidance, your unconditional love, and your ongoing, instant support.
It is with profound gratitude for my many blessings that I mistakenly take for granted that I now humbly ask to experience Your Divine Grace.
I greatly anticipate your miraculous intervention and healing in ALL aspects of my being now and I focus my attention on the areas that I name before you now.
I envision myself as ALREADY whole, perfect, complete and satisfied, and I see every cell in my body as filled with your Divine Light, your Radiance and Dynamic Vitality.
Starting today, I choose to find magical and miraculous ways to consciously attract and create the reality I prefer. By rewording my script and rewriting “The Story of My Life,” I can creatively redesign my destiny.
Because I am a Divine Expression of You, I firmly believe that, with Your wise guidance, I can resolve any problem, rectify any situation, and remedy any undesirable state of being that has previously held me in a stuck position.…. and so it is!
