Monday’s Miracle Manifesto

“Give of yourself as freely as you possibly can to eliminate the darkness.”—Tituss Burgess

Good morning, merry miracle makers.  Thought I’d take a moment to share a miracle story that recently came my way.

It’s from Tituss Burgess, the Emmy-nominated singer/actor who plays Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s gay, out-of-work roommate.  I became interested in him because of his close relationship with his grandmother who passed to the nonphysical many years ago. He still talks to her, feels her presence and seeks her advice. When she visits, he says things get really still and he just knows she’s broached the veil.

“It’s as real,” he says, “as if she were…you know, here in person.”

His grandma also continues to orchestrate miracles.

After four episodes of playing hairdresser D’Fwan on 30 Rock who, among other scene-stealing moments, urged Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy to “come out of the closet,” Burgess says, “I finally felt I’d found my purpose.”

It’s not that he didn’t enjoy his Broadway roles (in Guys and Dolls, The Wiz and Sebastian in The Little Mermaid, to name a few), but he was fervently praying for a bigger dream, a higher purpose. He got goosebumps when Alec Baldwin, after the conclusion of his four-episode run, told him he deserved a spin-off series.

At that point, he went home to his studio apartment in Hell’s Kitchen, got down on his knees and implored the Dude, the Universe, his grandma to bless him with another series-regular role.

“I said, ‘Goddess, I want another regular role with the same caliber of talent, the same level of energy, the same wonderful writing.”

He got evicted shortly thereafter.

Rather than despair, he knew it was time to employ his highest beliefs.

“I prayed for those things that I now knew were my purpose, I meditated on those things, I astral projected myself into these things. I saw myself there.”

Five years later, he landed the part of Titus Andromedon, Kimmy’s flamboyant, self-delusional roommate.

On his first day of filming, he got a clear wink from the universe.

“I was told to report to 48nd Street between Eighth and Ninth. My hand to God, the door of my trailer opened right in front of the very place where I had fallen to my knees and prayed. I get teary just thinking about it. It was a very clear sign of my bond with my grandma, with goddess, with the universe. It was like they said, “I see you and I’m going to give you beyond what you just asked for.”

So I ask you, my friends, what are you going to ask for today from the universe?

  1. I LOVE Tituss Burgess! I briefly met him in Marie’s Crisis in the West Village of NYC. It was 2am and the crowd was singing show tunes when he walked in. Tituss not only agreed to take a picture with me, he sang a quick line from his role as Sebastian in The Little Mermaid when I asked. (Which had to be pretty annoying) Amazing man! ❤️

    • He’s truly a remarkable human being. As he says, we have to put the same faith in our orders from the universe as we do our orders from GrubHub.

  2. I was just thinking today about all the “everyday miracles” that have happened in my life – and some pretty big ones too!!! When I met my now-non-physical hubs in 1989, I had been affirming meeting a soulmate with certain attributes for about 9 months – the proper gestation period for humans. One night I walked into a bar, and there he was playing the piano. It was love at first sight – or hearing for him as he was totally blind. Didn’t quite come in the package I had imagined, but he checked off all the boxes and more. Mike was certainly a miracle man, and he still takes care of me with even more miracles. I am so blessed to have met this person who truly knew the meaning of unconditional love for me – temper tantrums and all!! Thank you, MIke!!

    So today, what I’m am asking from the Universe is that everyone have a chance to have that experience – what I’m asking from everyone else is to be open to it.

  3. When I read the name Alec Baldwin I almost shut down this email. That man is not the kind of person I ever want to hear of again in my entire life.

  4. Hi Pam,
    Even though you may have meant it as a rhetorical question, today I’m asking that the money to pay my mortgage in full and make home repairs comes to me, quickly and in peace. I’m giving thanks for it already. Will report in as soon as the money shows up!
    Sending you love and blessings.

    • Hi Marianne. I’m just wondering which part of Toronto you’re in that had a power failure this afternoon. I was in the backyard most of the day but when I came in there was no indication of a power failure.

  7. Today I ask for success on my raw food and health journey.
    Or better yet, today I am so grateful for the success in my raw food and health journey!!! I am super happy and super easy with my food. I deeply enjoy it . I can easily afford it. In fact it just comes pouring in all by itself. It offeres itself to my health and my happiness.

    I know it’s my birthright and my dharma to feel my very best each and every day. It is a simple truth of life. I feel radiant and completely alive. It’s such a joy to be alive!!!

  8. Today I am asking the universe for one year paid long service leave. I’m not entitled to it in my current job but I reckon the universe can get around that somehow!! 😁

    Thanks for sharing this inspiring story with us. And for calling us “Merry Miracle Makers” ! I love that title. 😁
    May many merry miracles manifest for you this marvellous Monday dear Pam! (Although it’s probably now Tuesday for you seeing it’s Tuesday night as I write this from Melbourne Australia ⭐️) Blessings galore whatever the day my friend! 🌷🦋

  9. Wow. So great – I’m really loving this. And I’m reading your book Thank and Grow Rich right now Pam. I started writing a list of 101 things I’m grateful for 2 days in a row now. It takes about an hour! But I’m so lifted at the end. Blessings to you!

  10. Love this! I’m reading your book Thank and Grow Rich right now Pam and love the prompts. I started writing 101 things I’m grateful for over the last 2 mornings and feel so elevated at the end. It takes me about an hour but I’m going to keep going for at least 7 days. Blessings to you!

  11. I want you to know that I listen to your Course in Miracles book on Audible and (not surprisingly) it has the power to totally change my head. I have experienced many miracles as a result of your teaching. The fact that you did your own recording makes the book SO MUCH BETTER. I love when you say douche and asshole. About two weeks ago, I decided I needed some extra money for a few things. Last Thursday, I received an urgent appeal from my employer with a special project they needed to staff immediately. That project was a total bitch, but there will be about 35 hours of OT on my next check.

    Now, I am declaring to you. I am grappling with the fact that a friend borrowed $500 a couple of months ago and hasn’t mentioned it since. Most of the time, I don’t give a rat’s behind if he pays me back or not. I don’t even believe in “borrowing.” I thought Jesus mentioned “give everything you have.” But every once in a while, it stabs me and I get very annoyed which ruins the present moment and isn’t too good for the relationship either. I had to change my thoughts. No one is trying to screw me. We are all in it together. The birds are cheering me up. It’s summer and I get to work from home because of a pandemic that has permitted many souls to transition and given the earth time to heal. There are so many wonderful things to celebrate, both joyful and painful. I hereby resolve that this $500 thing will be cleared up momentarily. I don’t want to be paid back but do want an acknowledgement of some kind. As soon as I get it I will let you know. Thank God, thank Taz and thank you Pam. xoxoxox
