Expect A Miracle

by limitlesslaura

A very curious thing happened this week. You know what it’s like when you feel pulled toward a book, a song, a place or something that your spirit needs?  Since my mother passed away in December, I would not put it past her to be hanging around me and pointing the way to the lesson of the week!

Let me back up. When I think of the personal development foundation and legacy I was born into, I get goosebumps!! I feel a true responsibility to carry on the new thought my parents held so dear. In 1958, they were married by Dr Ernest Holmes, the founder of The Church of Religious Science or as it is now referred to Science of Mind.  I was very blessed to be part of a progressive home of thinkers and dreamers, who studied everything from Transcendental Meditation and astrology to The Course in Miracles. Certain concepts stuck with me more than others, and one in particular, the thought that you can change your life by changing your thoughts. More specifically, I was absolutely touched at an early age by something that felt like MAGIC to me. Once I knew I could change my life by changing my thoughts, I started to feel a knowing deep inside me, that we all had more power inside us than we could ever imagine, and it was all about thoughts, feelings, and seeing miracles manifest our lives.

I remember bumping into a strange little book of my mom’s entitled: I Desire and Image-The Expect A Miracle Book by Janet Levy and starting to read it. The book has a connection to a miracle I witnessed just prior to reading it.  I was about 16 at the time, and had just returned from a visit to Santa Fe New Mexico to my sister’s. We had gone to a famous little church (pictured above) where the legend was that the a miracle was performed there centuries before, and people came from all around to visit this little church. In the back of the church is a little room with a dirt hole in the ground, about a foot deep. As the miracle legend goes, a miracle occured at this hole in the ground. People would put some of dirt on their sick and injured family members, and they would be healed. It’s curious to everyone that the hole has NEVER grown in size, though THOUSANDS, perhaps, millions have gone through this church and taken some of the sacred miraculous earth.Why do I mention this peculiar hole in the ground? I mention it in the context of miracles. [click to continue…]


Did you know that’s there’s actually a very simple formula you can follow to manifest ANYTHING you want? It’s true! A dear friend and mentor of mine taught me this at least 13 years ago and it has worked to manifest health, happiness, money, better relationships, houses, cars, and all kinds of great things…even an all expense paid Cruise to Belize with and upgrade to the balcony suite !

Here’s how it works

1. DECIDE – Make a concrete decision that this thing is 100% what you WANT. Declare it to The Universe! Get out a piece of paper and write “I now decide to manifest our dream home on the ocean in California by December 2013″  (as an example) Sign it, and date it. Make copies of it. Shrink a couple down and have them laminated, so you can carry them in your purse or pocket to read 3 times a day. Once you make a decision, it is set in motion, and the die is cast. Decisions drive some of the most pivotal events in our lives, and when you think about it, nothing you have ever done, had or received in your life happened without a decision being made.

2. BELIEVE –See yourself with your manifestation in your minds eye, and believe it with all your emotional strength. Attaching STRONG EMOTION to the decision and the picture in your mind’s eye makes it 10 times more likely for you to manifest it. The reason for this is that the attraction vibration is being sent out as if it is already happening! Your belief is so strong that it’s as if your decision is already REAL. FEEL it down to your toes, like a real experience. Paint a picture, and make it as vivid as possible. Get detailed, and add more details every time you sit down to visualize it. Athletes do this. Olympic swimmers like Michael Phelps swim the meets in their minds over and over before they ever get to the events. Apollo Anton Ono, Jack Nicklaus, Michael Jordan and others practiced in their minds as much as on the court or fields.

3. CLEAR NEGATIVES! Negatives are fear and doubt based. Negative thoughts, words and feelings push away your miracle . Whatever you think, you are right. If you need to sit down and pour them out, get it over with. Write down all the reasons why you don’t think you deserve it, why you think it won’t happen etc. All of these things stand in your way. Get it ALL out. Then get a metal trash can or go to your fireplace and set a match to this paper and burn it!! Watch it burn away!! Those are the insignificant fears and doubts than stood in your way..that are now gone. They were only words in the first place. Just thoughts.


You may have no idea how any of this is going to happen! All you know is that you DECIDED and declared that you wanted this miracle, and you wanted it more than anything else. Get out another sheet of paper and draw a circle with the word “HOW” in the middle. Now draw a big, fat line through the middle on the diagonal. You are cancelling the HOW. Don’t worry about how you’re going to manifest it!! Just GET BUSY and do your part! Work, help others, BE MAGNIFICENT YOU!! The rest takes care of itself. The minute you go into fear and doubt…this manifestation stops. Just stay in the FLOW of not knowing how it will happen and trust that it will. BELIEVE and keep SEEING it with emotion. Your miracle will manifest on its time, not yours. This is simply how The Law of Attraction works.

Always STAY IN GRATITUDE and LOVE. Constantly feel and focus on the blessings you HAVE received because its that loving feeling, that happiness that attracts more of the same goodness to you!  Keep love and gratitude in your heart – praise God and the universe for your successes and allow Him to guide you to more. Listen to the quiet voice within and be at peace. The laws of The Universe are mysterious and wonderous, and they work!
