Many holidays are celebrations of past miracles; they also remind us that miracles are real and still occurring.
They can’t be proven by science, but because we have observed and/or experienced them, they live in our hearts, where Truth resides, and they forever change us.
Perhaps a loved one has experienced a highly improbable and extraordinary recovery from a terminal illness.
You may think they were touched by something mysterious, loving and divine.
You may even recognize that this event has opened your heart and enabled you to see life with new eyes which allows you to see previously unperceived possibilities.
Know that such events are life- changing, wakeup calls that fill us with peace and produce a deeper understanding of life and of ourselves.
You can create a miracle!
When dealing with a problematic person or difficult situation, think about her, him or it from a perspective other than your own; search for positives discoverable from that other viewpoint and you will notice differences in how you and the other person or stressor relate.
From this vantage point, consider if there is a kinder, more compassionate approach that makes the impossible possible.
You can also offer a prayer of petition with gratitude and appreciation.
You have just created an energetic shift based on the choice for love – i.e., a miracle!
It IS that simple!
This is an expression of energy attracting like energy; basically this is the way the universe works.
Choosing to see life differently – being kinder and more loving with no reservations – enables you to experience peace that will last throughout the holidays and the New Year.
