Be the Miracle for Others
I watched Bruce Almighty over the weekend. It’s nothing new, I’ve watched it several times. It’s one of those “soul films”, the kind of film from which you learn a little something, a new insight, a new lesson from the universe, each time you watch it.
I could write a book about the lessons from Bruce Almighty.
But here’s one for today.
“A single mom who’s working two jobs and still finds time to take her son to soccer practice, that’s a miracle. A teenager who says “No” to drugs and “Yes” to an education, that’s a miracle. People want me to do everything for them. What they don’t realize is THEY have the power. You want to see a miracle? BE the miracle.” – God
I am a prayerful person. I love prayer and I always have. And I pray to God for everything. Sometimes, I ask for things. Other times, I thank God for things. Sometimes, I’m just checking in for a chat, a little self-reaffirmation, touching base, getting grounded and keeping the channel open.
But I do ask for a lot. I asked, “God, why me?” at least once a day for as long as I can remember. I have externalised everything and sought approval from external sources, asked advice externally rather than trusting my own intuition and leaned upon the arm of God for help more times than I have trusted my own inner strength.
But here’s the kicker: God made us in His image. He made us powerful and he empowered us, giving us the ability to be able to use our minds and our bodies and our spirits to do great, powerful, terrible and wonderful things. God gave us the power to be miracle workers. He gave us the opportunity to share our light and experiences and he gave us empathy and compassion to do His work in the world.
We have the power to change our circumstances, our mindset, our reality, just about anything, because God gave us the beautiful power of free will. We have the power to infuse a little love, kindness, and peace into the lives of others because God gave us the qualities of compassion, empathy and kindness.
Before you look up, look in. Before you ask others, ask yourself. Trust your inner voice, your inner wisdom. This is the heart of miracles and the heart of manifestation. If your challenges surround your health, do things for your body that are healthy and nourishing and good. If your challenges surround a feeling of lack in your life, give so that others might have more, for as you give to others to increase your abundance, you are the hand of God giving abundance to others and you make the world a little bit more abundant. In doing so, you show that there is abundance to yourself, you change your vibration and your reality changes accordingly.
If you lament the grey unkindness of the world, before you pray for more kindness, be the hand of God that brings kindness to others – share your food with the hungry, share your smile with the sad and share your compassion with the downtrodden.
If you lament the lack of love in your life, reach out with love to others – to family, to friends, to others. Give love so generously and openly without expectation of return and you will envelop yourself in it and your cup of love will overflow.
And most of all, trust that little voice inside you who knows the way. If you want to manifest more something, you have that power within you and do not need God to drop it in your lap. Instead of asking God for something, ask God to give you the clarity to open yourself up to opportunities and seize them, actively. Ask, trust and let go of the outcome, knowing that the way it will come to you is perfect and seize on whatever opportunity presents itself – and it will – if you stay open, trust and meet God halfway.
I have simplified my prayer process and it is only this (I learned it from A Course in Miracles). “What would you have me do? Where would you have me go? What would you have me say and to whom? What miracles would you perform through me today? Thank you for today. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Look for ways to reshape and redefine your reality and share your triumphs with God who gave you your power, talents, and opportunities.
Look for ways to let the hand and the light of God work through you.
BE the miracle.
