Ask and You Shall Receive Miracles

What is the first thing that comes to mind when saying the word “a course in miracles“? Is it the blind boy who wakes up one morning, suddenly able to see for the first time in his life? Or how about the person who’s been deaf since birth who is now hearing a bird chirp for the first time? Many people think miracles are like these type of farfetched events that happen only to others. They couldn’t be more wrong about that.

All it takes is the willingness to believe you deserve miracles by asking for them. And I don’t necessarily mean “those kind of miracles.” I’m talking about simple every day things like getting that job or house you want, the ideal partner or whatever it is you desire.

As the world continues to evolve through a spiritual transformation, more so-called coincidences are taking place as the number of people who raise their level of consciousness increase. This is because through self exploration, there is a growing recognition that in order to lay claim to what we want, a change of consciousness has to take place from within ourselves. This leads those on the self-awareness path to open themselves to the possibility of asking and then receiving miracles. All that needs is a shift in their own perception of the universe in which we operate in.

Like a computer that runs on a set of procedures that must be followed in order to operate the machine, the universe has its own set of laws that must be followed in order to recognize, receive and accept miracles.

I am not a scientist or anything but one thing I’ve noticed is that when we change our outlook in life, we release a certain form of energy that tends to attract what we put out. If we expect miracles, we will receive them. If we feel we don’t deserve them, they won’t come to us. It’s that simple.

Miracles are everyone’s divine birthright. If that’s the case, then how come some people seem to lead happy, successful lives while others seem to live in despair? Stop and think about this for a moment.

Have you found yourself wondering about so-called coincidences or miracles that have occasionally appeared in your life only to dismiss them as “lucky events”? Think as far back in your life as you can. Focus on the major events that have happened to you and look at how they unfolded at just the right time. Have you noticed that every single person (or event) appeared at just the right time at the right place? They were people or situations that you could not have possibly engineered entirely on your own.

For example, was there a favorite teacher like Mrs. Jordan (you can read this story entitled “The Power of Three Words – THAT’S RIGHT STEPHEN!” in the inspiration category) who took you under her wing and gave you encouragement when you needed it the most? Or how about when you went out on a limb in total faith to achieve something like applying for a job at Merrill Lynch (see this story by going to “Trust in Being Brave – The Merrill Lynch Story” listed under my name) and then it happened?

The first step is to open yourself to a power greater than yourself and allow the light of love, courage, strength and hope to pour through you. Be willing to listen to your heart for that’s where the soul speaks to you. God has a divine plan for each and every one of us. You have a blueprint that is yours and yours alone. It’s up to you to find out what it is.
