A mini lesson in miracle-mindedness

“Miracles are like pimples. Once you start looking for them you find more than you ever dreamed.”–Lemony Snicket 1pa

In the Cook Islands, a bare-chested medicine man with waist-length dreads plucked a black rock out of the river, handed it to me and said, “put this in the north corner of your living room and you’ll become a millionaire.” Turns out curing cancer with his encyclopedic knowledge of jungle botany isn’t all Pa (that’s him in the picture) knows.

Summer before last, I was unloading my dishwasher when my editor at People magazine called and asked, “Would you want to go to a party and interview Blake Shelton?”

Last November, an agent from Creative Artists Agency, the Hollywood agency that represents Viola Davis, Jennifer Aniston, James Cameron, Nicole Kidman, emailed me in Kansas to ask if she could represent me as a speaker.

I hadn’t made an intention to manifest any of those things. What I had done–and what I still do every day —is make the intention to erase all beliefs, thoughts and emotions that block the energy of God.

ACIM Lesson 26 basically says that any thought that’s not of love is an attack upon myself. And not only is it an attack upon my invulnerability (yes, the Course is teaching me that, in truth, nothing can hurt me), but it’s a solid energetic wall that keeps cool things like abundance and partying with rock stars (OK, so Blake sings country) at bay.

Did you get that? The universe WANTS all of us to have abundant lives and party, not only with rock stars, but with EVERYONE!!
