When I was growing up, I loved the idea of a miracle. My favorite saying was, “It’s a miracle!” I sought out opportunities to find a miracle big or small. Now I don’t subscribe to the idea very much. So what happened between then and now? I learned that those so-called miracles were actually created by us. A miracle used to be a magical idea because I believed that something outside of all of us created it – something God like. Well, I have no argument with God but I am fully aware that we have the free will to create or not create at our choosing.
When we have a strong vision, a sense of determination and the belief that it can happen it does. We call something a miracle when we don’t recognize our part in creating it. How can we become more capable creators when we don’t recognize our creations?
It is easy to take credit for creations that take sweat and tears, effort and exhaustion. We are less willing to recognize our creative role when we something manifests out of sheer vision and will without all the physical effort. That is a very limited perspective on our ability to create and our awareness of ourselves.
One of my clients called this morning to tell me how incredibly overjoyed she was at her success in creating exactly what she wanted professionally. She was fully aware that she was the creator of the miracle. It was a miracle to her because a few short months ago she could not imagine creating a career step from a well-paying high level corporate job that she hated to being a professor at the university of her choosing and in demand as a speaker that included her passion for travel. A few months ago she had more reasons for why it could not happen.
This woman decided to try the techniques I teach in this blog all the time. She created a vision of her success; decided it was happening now (not in the future) and took one step at a time toward her vision. It’s a miracle! Not that it happened but that she changed her thinking to realize she was the creator of her reality. When she decided that she changed her reality from creating out of fear to creating the reality, she truly wanted.
Here is the Intuitive Exercise she used: Find quiet time each day. Write your vision of your success. Notice your limits and fears but disregard them. Pay attention and focus on your vision every day. Every day let go of whatever competing concepts that you have. Be determined. Take steps.
Meditation is a good technique for visualizing your success. I invite you to join an online meditation each Monday.
