Stop and think for a moment about the miracles that have happened for you today. We don't do this often enough and yet it is only in being aware of the miracles that we open ourselves to more.
The world has recently witnessed 33 men rescued from a mine in Chile. Out of the darkness into the light – who would have thought that would happen? They faced enormous fears; the worst kind possible and yet, they are alive today to tell their story. This is a miracle and we are all a witness to it.
In a previous post I wrote that a miracle is a 'shift in perception.' A simple definition but think about it – how much did those men need to shift their perception to retain their sanity and optimism that they would be safe? They emerged from this ordeal not haggard, not miserable, not angry - in fact, the opposite; prayerful, thankful, feeling blessed and smiling with joy. That didn't just happen because they were released from their prison. They were released, I would suggest, because they were able to shift their perception of the situation to one of acceptance beforehand.
I may be wrong about this but I think that before we get released from the prison we place ourselves in; we need to shift our perception and accept where we are and notice that our life is already blessed.
Now can you see the miracles?
