So you want ACIM? You need a miracle. Perhaps this would be the perfect time for something miraculous to happen. Like a white bearded handsome God shining a light down on you, saying “Hello down there. I remember you. Here’s an olive branch with your lifeline. Hang on cause you are about to be rescued just as the crocodiles snap at your feet and the wolf is at your door.” Wouldn’t that be nice? A juicy ripe miracle every time we needed one. To be able to count on the dreams to be real, the fantasy a reality.
Before we get into the core of how to create miracles, I think it would be best to define the miracle itself and then go into ways to attract your miracles.
According to the dictionary, a miracle is a wonderful thing, a remarkable example or specimen. The Latin word, miraculum, means to wonder or marvel. Major miracles are accompanied by extraordinary elements. But in its very basic definition, that’s all a miracle is. Something amazing and possibly out of the ordinary. Last week I overheard a man In line at the post office discussing what a miracle it was that he received this letter in three days. We use the word miracle to describe both the mundane and ordinary world, and the miraculous one where dreams do come true. You could go back to basics. It is a miracle that you are you at this particular time. Think back to the life you have led. What extraordinary events occurred to lead you to this book, this guide to catching your miracle wave?
The word miracle has been applied to
o Saints, healings, statues, wells
o Cleaning fluids
o Synchronistic events.
o Parking spaces
o Avoiding a near fatal crash
o Sudden insights
o The discovery of fire
o Falling in love. Lasting true love.
o A helping hand
o Winning the Lottery
o Getting an Education
o Being surrounded by loving families
o Food when you are starving
o The internet
So what exactly is a miracle? Each of you has a different idea of what a miracle is. Miracles to you might be a random act of God that happens to the lucky. For others, a miracle is an unexplainable act that no human could possibly accomplish alone. Or maybe you simply define a miracle as, “something that can never happen to me.” To become a saint in the Catholic Church you must have two documented miracles, such as turning a gallon of water into 1000 bottles of wine. Research into Church history reveals many priests had those types of skills. In fact levitation was so common in the Middle Ages, that it was forbidden to consider this act as a miracle. If your definition falls into one of these categories, or something similar, I am challenging you to set aside everything you’ve been told and consider that there’s something more to miracles that you’ve yet to learn. Your life is your personal miracle.
