A couple times a week I get an email from someone who wants to know what they’re doing wrong.
They’ve been on a spiritual path for a little while (anywhere from 3 weeks to 30 years) and they’re reading books, taking classes, learning various healing modalities and esoteric arts and they are doing what they believe is RIGHT.
Still, things aren’t where they want them to be.
Maybe that means they’re still in a job they hate, or they’re dealing with family members that won’t stop nagging them. Maybe it’s a health issue or infertility or lack of love or lack of money.
Some days are better than others, and they are doing EVERYTHING they’re SUPPOSED to do to change things up and take responsibility and own it and be spiritual – but they are not seeing results.
To make it worse, they run into people throughout their travels who seem to say one prayer and voila! they get a really cool sign from the Universe that the prayer was heard and the tides are turning.
This makes my writers fume.
Sure, they feel guilty fuming, but still, the fume is there. With a little underlying “why me?” and a decent shake of “God doesn’t love me, or I haven’t apparently earned peace, yet.”
Is it true?
Are there people who just “get” miracles and instant manifestation because they’re better, while the rest of us have more hoops to jump through (because we were made fundamentally flawed in some way?)
Think about it for a minute.
Now FEEL about it.
Does your heart tell you that there are people who are more than and others who are less than?
Not your head – your heart.
While you might be able to wrap your head around the idea that “hard work” is necessary for success, or even the idea that some of us are just naturally born at the back of the pack, your heart can’t fathom it.
Your heart is right.
What is true is that if you’re feeling ‘left out’ of the MIRACLE happenings – your head is running the show. Your head has a list of what is an “acceptable” and an “Unacceptable” miracle. Your heart sees everything as miraculous.
What most of us miss (oh boy, I’m guilty of this) is that miracles are occurring even when you’re not seeing shooting stars, or finding feathers or coins or whatever else you presume to the “sign” of your miracle.
Some miracles are in the space you’ve been left to find your way. Sometimes not having something happen is the gift and manifestation. Nothing happens without Divine timing. Our timing is rarely Divine – and it’s almost always rushed and on a deadline.
The thing about miracles is that they are both everyday and Divine. Miracles happen in their own way and look the way they look (or sound the way they sound) without any direction from us. Over time you might get more and more specific about your signs, but your miracles occur when you RELEASE YOUR ATTACHMENT to how – how they look, how they show up; how they work.
Miracles are about LETTING GO.
The Miracle is your ability to let go.
Can you let go?
Can you find peace in the moment to lean into your heart’s desire?
I’m sure I’m not the only person to let you know that NOTHING outside of you will bring you peace or happiness. However, you already have every single thing you need for peace and happiness. It’s inside. That’s the miracle.
