Never before have I experienced a time in my life when my cultivation of gratitude for the present moment and belief in the extraordinary had ever been more applicable.
Last week, we experienced a major upheaval in my family (by the way, thank you all so much for the emails and prayers–I know they are working) in the form of a very serious medical emergency. My life is now changed forever. As are the lives of my close family members.
Let me tell you, amidst this devastating change, it is SO easy to go into negative, downward spiral thinking. Into panic. Into self-pity. Into extreme anxiety.
But that doesn’t help anyone, does it? Instead, I’m learning to dig my heels into the Earth deeper than ever before. How you do anything is how you do everything, thus, I know that by embracing the miracle of believing in a full return to “normalcy,” I am strengthening my miracle muscles to believe that it is possible to beat all the odds in every area of my life.
I went for a run this morning to take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and get some fresh air when I realized that something about the look and feel of the experience reminded me of a Harry Potter movie— the wind howling, the red leaves swirling, the dark colors, the weird lighting. Although Harry Potter is just a story, it represents a common experience to which we all can relate. Even with the ultimate fear, the threat of death, Harry stood his ground and courageously faced the present moment. And each time, miracles occurred.
On behalf of my family, as well as myself, it is vital that I believe with every cell in my body that miracles are possible. As I deepen my practice of faith, courage, and gratitude in my own life, I invite you to come along with me on the journey.
The next time you experience yourself thinking “I could never do that,” or “This could never happen,” or “There’s no way…” see if you can alter your thinking–“I believe I can do x because I believe in miracles,” or “This will happen because miracles are possible,” or “There IS a way since miracles happen every day.”
Whether you are experiencing doubts in your health, relationships, career, spirituality, or family life, I invite you to cultivate a new approach–the “I believe” approach. Flex YOUR miracle muscle and let’s find out what miracles we can cultivate. Please comment below with your thoughts and experiences.
Have a beautiful day, and Namasté.
