Gratitude Can Move Mountains

 

 

 

 

 

“This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love; the more they give, the more they possess.” Rainer Maria Rilke

Gratitude is the first step to making magic, manifesting miracles and moving mountains. Well maybe not quite moving mountains, but almost.

Over the years I have worked with a great many people in very different stages of life. Some were at a cross road and did not know which way to turn. Others were painfully emerging from a long relationship and in the process had forgotten who they really are. Others bore the grief of losing a child, a job, their youth or a dream and could not find a way to step forward.

Notwithstanding the journey each one chose to make in their own healing, all these people had one thing in common. By paying attention to the areas in their life that warranted gratitude, their lives began to change. Though the areas that called them to give thanks were not connected to the issues that caused them pain, once they began to count their blessings miraculously everything in their lives gradually began to improve.

Why?

Because of one simple Universal Law. “That which is like unto itself is drawn”. Basically, we attract what we think about. If we focus on the good things in our life we draw more good things into our life. We have the power to attract both good and bad into our lives as a result of what we are thinking, feeling and calling towards us, whether these intentions are conscious or not. And when we change our thoughts, we change what we attract into our life. It’s all up to us.

In her book Simple Abundance, Sarah Ban Breathnach’s says that relief and comfort are inevitable when we write 5 things that we are grateful for every day. Gratitude is Grace. It connects us to the heart and when our heart is open we become a magnet to everyday miracles.

The Effortless Ease of Everyday Miracles

“Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.” 
― C.S. Lewis

 

 

 

 

 


There are moments in life when everything becomes effortless and naturally falls into place. Like waking up after a deep and restful sleep and finding yourself floating in an ocean of inner peace. Or letting go of an old and obsolete belief and sinking into  soft, warm sand of unrestricted freedom. Or burying a love one, knowing everything between you was complete and grieving is but a passing cloud in a sea of gratitude and love. Those are precious moments not to be taken for granted.

I love it when I know I have taken the wrong turn and drive around lost for a while when suddenly I am at the right place, as if by magic. I love it when I have just made a cup of tea and realise there is no milk in the fridge when my husband arrives home with the milk at that exact moment. I love it when I think about an old friend who I haven’t seen for years and I receive an email from her out of the blue. You know what I mean?

Here’s to the effortless ease of everyday miracles.

 

The Little Book of Everyday Miracles

Hello and Welcome,                                                                                                                

Welcome to my blog about miracles. Everyday miracles to be exact. This is a place to put to share, explore and create the magical, miraculous, the marvellous and the magnificent. Can you imagine what our world would be like if we expected miracles everyday?

The book, The Little book of Everyday Miracles can be purchased by simply clicking the link below.


 There’s something about miracles that’s utterly enticing. Just to hear about a miracle makes you feel more hopeful.

It doesn’t matter whether this miracle happened to you or to a complete stranger—it can still delight you. It’s a delight that lingers, that leaves you with a spring in your step. Suddenly life doesn’t seem so difficult. But where are miracles to be found, and how do they come about?

Maybe you don’t believe in everyday miracles. Maybe there was a time you really needed a miracle and it didn’t come in time.

Maybe the most amazing miracle turned your life around.

Maybe, like me, your days have many everyday miracles.  I was born believing in miracles. Don’t ask me how I knew miracles happened, I just did. I also knew life wasn’t restricted to mundane things. I simply knew that there was more to life than I could see or hear or feel. That’s what miracles do to us. They stretch our vision, nudging us beyond all the everyday things which weigh us down. Of course we don’t have to believe in miracles. It’s our choice.

I hope that as we share our beliefs and experiences together you may be reminded of some magical moments and synchronicities in your own life.  I know you have them, because we all do. Everyday miracles however, are like dreams, easily forgotten unless we write them down or talk about them.

I want to hear about your everyday miracle. It cannot be too small. In fact the smallest ones make us smile as much as the big ones.  Only today I was looking out of my window and instead of noticing the clear blue sky I noticed streaks of dust, cobwebs and a few suspicious splotches on the window pane. I was trying to remember the lovely young man who climbed the 4 metre high ladder some time ago, when I received an sms on my phone asking me whether it was time to clean my windows. Don’t you love it when that happens?

Have you had any everyday miracles while travelling, or bringing up children, or finding love, or losing love? Have you experienced a crisis that became a miracle?

Don’t forget to include your name and contact details so that I can contact in the future.

We may just be creating another book, together.

Here’s  to all the everyday miracles you’ve had and are about to have.

Much Love,

Sharon
