Are you Open to a Miracle?

In the recent past, I struggled with my beliefs due to circumstances involving health and relationships. I am aware of miracles because I have experienced these blessings numerous times throughout my life. I know you have too. Some of you right now may be hoping for your own miracle. Let me assure you, it is not only possible but also guaranteed under Divine grace for each one of us to receive miracles.

Are you Open to a Miracle_ (1)

I am happy to announce, I have a third story published in Chicken Soup for the Soul.  This book is called Believe in Miracles: 101 Stories of Hope, Answered Prayers and Divine InterventionThe Divine works in mysterious ways. I know without a doubt, this publication coming out now is confirmation another miracle is on its way.


Miracles are often unexpected surprises. For those who hold a strong faith, a miracle acts as a confirmation of their beliefs. Most of us fall into this next category. Being human, you have doubts and fear. You don’t expect a miracle can or will happen for you. When this happens, acknowledge and feel all of these emotional states. Once you feel them, they transition out of your consciousness, making room for your miracle. Resisting emotions, blocks the energy of miraculous solutions. This is what I write about in my story called A Found Friend, a journey of getting lost in the Canadian woods, with my husband, and finding not only our way out, but also a serendipitous friend.

How to Get Your Miracle:

1.) Be Aware of Ordinary Miracles

Miracles happen everyday, yet we are too busy or distracted to notice how blessed we are. Some miracles are routine, such as breathing, seeing and eating. These are all gifts keeping you alive to experience the wonder of life. Start keeping track of your these familiar miracles. You can do this through a gratitude journal. Being thankful for miracles, increases your positive energy and vibration. The more you notice miracles, the more you receive.

Here is a short list of everyday miracles;

Someone with anxiety or depression goes to therapy. This person allows themselves to sit with uncomfortable emotions and expresses them.

A lost wallet is returned, with all of its contents inside.

The fact we live on this beautiful planet, suspended in space.

Random acts of kindness.

A tiny seed grows into a large oak tree.

2.) Ask and You Shall Receive

Pray to the Divine and ask for a miracle. It is through your connection to the Divine, you experience miracles.

Make your intentions known. Write them down, talk about them with a trusted friend. This breathes inspiration and energy into your wishes.

3.) Allowing/Worthiness

In order to receive you need to be aware, but also be open to receive, without expectation. Surrender your way of doing for a larger plan. Recite the Serenity Prayer, as I did in my story.

Believe and know you are worthy of extraordinary experiences big and small. You do not have to do anything to have a miracle. It is about knowing you deserve simply because you exist.

4.) Connect with Other Miracles

When you hear or read about other people’s miracles, you gain hope. If it can happen to them, it could happen to you. Look for podcast episodes featuring miracles and read books. I have been reading this Believe in Miracles book to remind me of my own and other people’s miracles. It is boosting my faith, may it boost yours too.
