2014 - The Year of Miracles
Recently I was asked, “what is a miracle”? Take a minute to answer that for yourself.
I can’t even remember what I said because the definition they provided was so profound it has changed how I look at life.
A miracle is an event in which you had a low expectation of it becoming a reality.
Basically, your lack of belief in the event being possible is what caused you to define it as a miracle. WOW! How true is that? I have been manifesting (aka, using the law of attraction) in my life since 2006… 8 years now. During this time, I have gotten really good at manifesting. I have created many “miracles”in my life. Things that are definitely closer to the impossible than possible. I have been called lucky. Some people are just generally confused about how these things happen for me… but the truth is, that I believe if I really, really, really want it in my heart, that the “entire universe conspires to help me achieve it” (The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo). That is just a fancy way of saying, I believe in miracles.
Lately, manifesting has become almost instantaneous for me. All of the teachers I learned from talked about how this happens and I have waited patiently for the time when I could make a request of the Universe and see it instantly fulfilled. I have been
able to have that occur with little things, like parking spaces, but it has taken this long to have it work on the big, complicated things. And, I thought there was a process, like walking a road and eventually I would learn how to manifest bigger things. But, the truth is, like the definition of miracles, it is just as easy to instantly manifest big, hairy complicated things as it is to manifest a parking spot. It is the same process, same energy. But, one has an emotional component causing us to give it a lower expectation of becoming a reality… that is the only difference. And, this year, I have gotten to experience firsthand how easy it is to manifest anything – big or small… and create miracles.
This year, the Universe is set up to help each of us grow in leaps and bounds. We all have the universal energy there to support us. All we have to do is believe. Believe in yourself, trust your preferences and desires, and trust that the Universe is going to support you in getting them. What you want is an indicator of the direction you need to be traveling right now. Listen to your heart – it is guiding you. If your heart is asking for something, don’t brush it aside, but take a moment and ask for the “miracle”you need to make it happen. Do you want to quit your job and paint full time but can’t see how you could afford to live? Ask for a miracle… this is the year to get it! Are you looking for the love of your life, but have nearly given up? Ask for a miracle – ask that you connect with this person easily and effortlessly. Is there a big dream, so big you barely talk about it, that you are going to do “one day”? Ask for a miracle to attract the opportunity to fulfill that dream this year, easily and effortlessly.
This has been such an incredible year for me. I refer to the past six months as my time of cracking open. For someone who has always been so organized and had a back up plan for every plan, these past six months have been a whirlwind. My mind sees things in process flows and is always finding a better, more efficient way to get things done… I jokingly say I want to consult for God, I have some ideas on how things could flow better. So, that is why, this year, I was “selected” to learn to trust God, the Universe, and most importantly, myself. (Don’t joke about being a consultant to God…you get lessons that crack you open if you do). I have had to learn (at times very painfully) how to trust. A big part of trusting was to see how I really do not have to “do” much. But, that how I am (my being) is critical. I have spent a big part of my life scared of what may or may not happen, what I should or should not be doing, etc. And I have missed opportunities to grow and learn. If I simply “be” the person I want to be, with an open heart, the opportunities naturally occur and move me to my goal – this is what I call Manifesting. I have ended up accomplishing so much this year that I was planning to, without all the effort of planning, thinking, re-planning and “doing”. It just naturally flowed into my life, like the waves of an ocean.
My wish for you and I for 2014 is that we trust with an open heart and get moved along to our next life experience – easily and
effortlessly. I hope for many miracles for all of us.
