From “What is” to “What if?”
“Magic is becoming the new norm.”—Bentinho Massaro
At the Omega Institute where I was scheduled to present this week, there are always several workshops going on.
I’ve been there when Marianne Williamson was teaching, Paul Selig and even Eckhart Tolle. It’s pretty tony company.
Everybody eats in the same dining room and people from the other workshops would often quizzically approach our group and ask, “What are you guys doing in there? What ARE you smoking?” They could feel our joyful, gleeful vibe. It was palpable.
That’s what all of us have been doing this week. Creating a resonant field of excitement and energy. From the many comments on the blog, it appears that our team of miracle P.I’s has successfully contributed to the upliftment of planetary consciousness. That sounds all woo-woo, I suppose, but it’s no small thing. To me, it’s one of the best ways to serve mankind.
I like to think of myself as a computer programmer (even though I don’t know the first thing about coding) who goes in and changes the code on this three-dimensional video game called life. Most of us were programmed to believe in lack and limitation, to believe that miracles are impossible or at least not everyday occurrences.
By changing the code (which is what we’ve done this week), we discover a more magical way of existing in the world. Instead of looking at “what is” we open ourselves to a resonant field of glorious possibilities, we start asking “What if?”
I trust all of you will continue on in your consciousness-changing work as miracle spotters. The more we call out miracles, the more normal, natural and easy they become. Which creates even more miracles. The toggle switch in our field of awareness has been changed to a whole new setting.
So today, in conclusion of this online mini-workshop, I’d like to share a couple thoughts on how to keep the high frequency going. Just remember:
1. Miracles are natural. The Course says if we’re not experiencing them on the daily, something has gone wrong.
2. A miracle can be accessed at any time. It doesn’t take seven or nine or whatever steps. The Course calls this toggle switch the holy instant. It can happen that quickly.
I got an amazing email last week from a woman who attended a workshop I once gave in Austin. Because she walked in late, she had no time to get into her “story.” Right away, it was her turn to share, and before the old familiar “poor me” narrative could fall into place, a completely different thought popped into her head. “My entire life has been a miracle.” Before that holy instant, she had always focused on her struggles. She grew up poor, her parents died when she was young, she got into drugs, yada yada.
But because she had no time to call up her normal script, this other story came pouring out. She described one miracle after another. And the most amazing thing, she said, is it felt more REAL and more TRUE than any other story she’d ever told.
Since that time (and this is my favorite part), the old story never returned. The switch became permanent. She now sees miracles instead of sadness, accomplishments instead of struggle.
This switch in attention can be made that fast. It can be made at any moment you decide to switch it.
3. Help is available 24/7. The Course asks us to relinquish all that clutters up our minds. Anytime we get off track, we’re encouraged to simply ask for help from what the Course calls the Holy Spirit. In my new book, I compare this always-available resource to the character Hobson, the hilarious butler who took care of Dudley Moore in the 1981 movie, Arthur. Hobson loved his irresponsible charge with an open heart, no matter what ridiculous, immature thing he did. All Arthur had to do was ring a little silver bell.
So whenever I notice my mind settling into problem state or forgetting to be grateful or worrying about anything at all, I just stop, think of Hobson and ring the silver bell.
Thank you all SO MUCH for joining the Miracle P.I. team. Don’t forget to leave today’s miracle in the comments section below. And remember none of our lives will ever be the same.
With so much gratitude, Signing off from Lincoln Street. 222 Forever!!!
