Increase Your Miracle Awareness
One day sitting in the leasing office where I've worked part-time (it's a bridge job) with C, my coworker, she laughed and tells me about this email she got expressing interest in interviewing her for some industry publication. She saw it and said something like, "Oh, boy. I don't even know why they'd want to talk to me..." She was dismissing an opportunity before investigating it.
"What if this is God turning the light on your next step?" I asked her.
She laughed. "You know, you're right! I'll take a look at this later," she said.
Six months ago, I would have NEVER used 'God' but I have been cultivating my miracle awareness for a long time.
Miracle awareness refers to your ability to perceive acts of love.
I have a question for you:
How often do you see love as the motive for someone else's actions toward you?
True, sometimes another person is motivated by fear instead of love when they "come atchu." Do you then respond through fear?
That's the thing... Sometimes people will outright ATTACK you. Other times, they're clearly acting from LOVE. And then there are the actions of others that could fall in either category depending on your perceptual frame.
If your perceptual frame is love, you'll be more likely to read an email offering you an interview for an industry magazine as an exciting thing, a gift. If your perceptual frame is fear, you'll be mighty skeptical of such a surprise.
I'm no damn saint. There are plenty of times I respond through fear to another person's attack. One such time I responded with fear happened shortly after C and I laughed about her response to an opportunity.
A few days after C got the magazine editor's email, I got a phone call from someone at the local classic rock radio station telling me about how I can win big by listening to the station later that afternoon. I was riled up by phone calls I'd gotten earlier and a personal email about our car insurance payment that was about 10x what it should be... So I was seeing through FEAR. I got the call and told the guy, "Nah, I'm good." I hung up and spun to tell C about it.
"What if that was God paying you back?" she asked.
I felt my face contort, responding on its own to her query. What if she was right?!?!
"C'mon," she said. "I usually rely on you to see things that way!"
I clapped my hands together, looked to the ceiling and only half-jokingly told God to send me whatever I was supposed to receive that day: miracles, money, wisdom, whatever.
See? Sometimes I, too, need to be reminded to return to miracle awareness.
A Course In Miracles indicates that a miracle is an expression of love. So miracle awareness is about seeing the miracle in the seemingly mundane.
How To Cultivate Miracle Awareness
Begin by observing your thought patterns as you engage with the world. What makes you feel happy and what makes you feel anxious?
Examine your reactions and the original incidences periodically. Why did you have the specific reaction you did? What if you'd chosen to see things differently?
Do this over time, and eventually your immediate reactions to MOST things will be based on your perception of love.
Truly, it's a habit, and like any habit, you must make regular, repeated efforts toward your desired end. Choose miracle awareness as your dominant way of looking at the world.
It's looking at the world through rose-colored glasses.
