I’m grateful for miracles. Those who believe in miracles see them everywhere. Those who don’t believe see them nowhere. We are only ever able to see what we are open to see. If I’m aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, my energy is attracted to stories that are aligned with seeing them out in the world. I believe we all come here with a purpose and our life experiences guide us to allow it to reveal itself. When I get off-track or sink into an energy that pulls me from my purpose, I’ve often noticed miracles are what helps pull me back from going into the abyss. Those miracles were apart of my awakening. I don’t believe that these are the only times miracles are available to be seen, I see miracle everywhere, but when I think of truly appreciating miracles, I think of the ones that saved my life and awakened my soul to my purpose.
As I’ve said before, I believe that the Divine communicates with us in ways we are open to receive. The way I receive when I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace is MUCH different then when I’m aligned with the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I personally love viewing specific events through perspective of miracles. The way that makes me feel inside aligns me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, so I EMBRACE the experience of believing in miracles.
When I was seventeen, I attempted killing myself. This wasn’t my first time, but it was the time I thought it was going to work. I’ve heard many stories over the years of miraculous things that have happened to people in similar situations. Part of our journeys led us into the abyss of despair, but something outside of us said NO when it was us trying to take matters into our own hands. Though I still had many dark struggles ahead, I never tried to take my own life again. Somewhere inside of me, I knew I needed to go through that level of despair to know the AWE that comes from feeling absolute fulfillment. My being open to see the miracles that saved my life helped me have the perseverance, courage, and strength to take the journey to where I am today.
Miracles have opened me up to pay attention to how the Universe will break open to help individuals see a little clearer. I know I need that burst of AWE sometimes to break me out of thought and behavior patterns that are pulling me away from aligning with my higher purpose.
I’ve been given the opportunity to live. I know many who left this realm whether through violence, an accident, disease, or intentionally self-inflicted. They may not have survived, but what I’ve noticed is the awakening moments, the miracles, and people fulfilling their life purposes ignited from their deaths. I watch two of my friends who have lost their children to violence do amazing things to help others. Just watching my friend Erin, who I’ve written about before spread her amazing faith and shine her light in the world has opened me up to see the miracles that came from her experience of losing her son and his father in a murder-suicide. She forgave her son’s father for killing her son then killing himself. The freedom that she experiences from making the choices she does is AWE-inspiring. To me, her journey is like watching a walking miracle. She shows the people around her beautiful light, by sharing her journey of recovery, grief, and AMAZING FAITH, which helps so many to see the importance of feeling her way through it all. I love that she doesn’t skim over her pain, because she knows that people hiding from their pain leads to dark places. I will not be surprised to find out that her story helps to save someone’s or many people’s lives. Since I work on keeping my energy aligned with love, abundance, and peace, I see these kinds of stories all the time. It is sometimes in a person’s death, that they have the power to awaken the life in others. Their lives become miracles through the people who find purpose in having to experience their deaths.
As I’ve said before, these are my perspectives. These are the perspectives that help me stay aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace while trying to make sense of events that can easily pull me into the energy of fear, lack, and separation if I allow them to. When I find away to view something as painful as death through a lens of love, abundance, and peace, I celebrate the miracle. Nobody else has to agree with me or believe the way I do. I know it’s a perspective of truth. I’ve listened to many other perspectives of truth on the topic of death and survival that are beautiful, but they just didn’t feel right in my garden. I can stand back and appreciate how those seeds developed in someone else’s garden without having to plant them in my own. That is something that has helped me find so much peace in this life. I don’t have to attack people who see things differently than I do, because I know that the way someone else see things is their journey.
There are so many forms of miracles. I was led to write about this particular area of miracles today. I didn’t know this was what was going to come out. I’m grateful for the miracle of my life. I didn’t know it at the time, but all the despair passes when I allowed myself to feel through each feeling that brought me there. It took years of work, but every step opened me up to powerful realizations that help me help others today. Nobody’s life is better off without us in it. We are on each other’s journeys for a reason and we each make choices to align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation moment to moment. NOBODY can MAKE us align with one energy over the other. We have to do the work to stay aligned with either energy of our choosing. Our stories in our heads will take us in either direction. The miracle is in the awareness, acceptance, and action that we can write our own stories. We don’t need any circumstances outside of us to change to do this—Another miracle. The journey to aligning is ALWAYS inward.
When I’m aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, the miracles show up in the most beautiful ways. Sometimes it’s about what I see in the clouds. I see those signs from the Universe as miracles, because we not only have to look up in perfect timing, we have to have the image clear in our heads, and pay enough attention to see it. With how distracted I know I can get, I’m going to celebrate when I see a heart or angels in the the sky.
I love being open to see miracles. I’m so incredibly grateful to get to experience the state of AWE that comes with seeing and appreciating miracles. My life is definitely better for it
Today, I commit to acknowledging and appreciating miracles. We are shown only what we are open to see. I will start by setting my intention to stay open to see them. Next, I will say a prayer to help me align my energy with the feeling that comes from seeing and appreciating the experience of a miracle:
Divine Creator, thank you for showing me the wonder of miracles today. I’m so grateful for every miracle I’ve been open to see. I’m grateful to see other people’s experiences with miracles, as much as my own. When I am connected to the energy of miracles, I am connected to the energy that represents you-LOVE. I will allow my senses to experience miracles today. Please help me to remain open to connect with you here on a regular basis.
With love and so much gratitude,
Lastly, I will allow myself to experience miracles today. I may see them in what I read, listen to, or experience somewhere outside of myself. I also may experience them physically, emotionally, and spiritually myself. Experiencing a miracle either way aligns me with the energy of Divine love and connection. To me experiencing a miracle is one of the best natural highs. It’s one that I can lean on during the more challenging times.
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
