“Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is
written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.”
– C.S. Lewis

Miracles occur everyday.  Big ones.  Little ones.  Some noticed.  Most not.

How is it that we are daily surrounded by miracles yet few of us are transported by them?

Largely because miracles are incorrectly understood. Seen only as huge, burning bush occurences.  Those compelling changes and events that happen to others.  The blind seeing.  The lame walking.  The mute speaking.  These are the miracles we are mostly attuned to.

Which means we miss those of the endless and touching variety that occur daily for each of us.

Today we can begin to redefine miracles.  Find them accessible.  Happening in our own lives. We begin by noticing small but wonderful things. Coincidences.  The tiny enrichments that come from an unexpected greeting or word of praise.  A feeling – even if momentary – of being heard or appreciated.  Unexpected opportunity, connection or income. All new possibilities – big or small – that occur to us as we open ourselves to this new way of thinking.

We will sense and be filled with awakening. Wonder.  Curiosity.  Energy. All the result of relentlessly and fervently focusing on the belief that miracles are occurring all around us.  Even if we don’t yet see them. We firmly believe that are there.  Every single  second.  In myriad and unrecognized ways.

By simply focusing on belief, being on the lookout for miracles,  opening ourselves to them appearing unexpectedly and in sometimes ordinary ways, we will begin to feel uplifted. No matter what we see or don’t see.  Because we have begun the  journey of viewing life as miraculous. Which it most certainly is.

Simply being open to the idea of miracles will create an air of expectancy. Excitement  Optimism. We will feel uplifted every time we see the unusual, even the smallest thing because this may just be a miracle in the making.

Our cooperation will complete the act.
