Do You Act Upon Your Miracles?

Miracle & Light“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”~Albert Einstein

Does a miracle change things by the notion that it appears and “poof” everything changes or is it a matter of acting on the miracle that presented itself? Is it “enough” that you recognized the miracle or will you take action with the knowledge that an amazing opportunity just opened a door for you and all you need do is act upon it by simply taking a step forward to walk through the door?

There’s no better time to reflect upon miracles, spirit and freedom than this holy week of Passover and Easter. From the miracle of the parting of the Red Sea to the miracle of spirit appearing after death, this is a week to reflect upon what we actually DO with the miracles that occur in each of our lives.

It might be a thought, an opportunity or you just might have an epiphany which in an instant helps you change direction. After all aren’t those the miracles you pray for? An answer is just as much of a miracle as anything else if you’ve asked a question (or prayed for it) long enough. What you do with your miracle is up to you but first you must start to see those miracles and find freedom by making the impossible, possible with your choices.

Back in 1980 I was living in Israel on Kibbutz Ha’Ogen. During the time I was there I had the opportunity to part take of a Passover Seder on the Kibbutz. The Seder was very different from the one I experienced growing up. At the time I spoke semi-fluent hebrew and was struck at the core of my being when the words (loosely translated here) were “It is what we did for ourselves with the help of God’s miracles that brought us out of Egypt.” Wait a second! It wasn’t all about what “God did for us (‘us’ meaning the Jewish people) that brought us out of Egypt.”

It made so much sense to me. If the Red Sea parted but the people were too afraid to step forward and actually walk the path that was miraculously created  the story of Exodus would be very different. In fact the story of Exodus might not exist at all. Can you imagine if the people said “ok God, you parted the sea, cool trick. Now what? Can you tele-port me to the other side.” I realized back then that if you don’t act on miracles or opportunities or the answers to your prayers you will still be in a place of waiting for miracles, opportunities or your prayers to be answered. You need to act upon the miracles presented to you at any given moment and in many ways, acting upon your miracles is another miracle!

The definition of a miracle is that which cannot be scientifically explained or otherwise attributable to the “laws of nature” but who of us has not experienced or seen some sort of miracle? The birth of a baby, the seeds sprouting in spring, or waking up in the morning after a devastating storm when you thought you would surely parish. The fact that you are a divine spirit and that you made the choice to live in a human body is a miracle. The sun rising and setting is a miracle.

So as in the opening Einstein quote; “There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.” Each day presents you with miracles and perhaps the real miracle is the choice you have to act upon those miracles. It is YOU and what you choose to do for yourself when you are given a miracle that makes all the difference!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Asking for a Sign: Message Received on 37th Street.

Empire State Building NYC
Empire State Building

Everything is energy and all things that will come to pass do so in the spiritual realm before they manifest in the physical. So how do we know the spiritual inner work we are doing is in motion? How do we know if it’s working? ASK FOR A SIGN!

Whether it’s finding your space, creating something new or you simply have a question you want answered, before doing major healing work ask for a message to manifest in the physical.

My personal request usually goes something like “Dear Universe, Please give me a clear message that what I’m doing is working and please make it SO obvious I won’t miss it!” In this case, I asked and received more than I could have imagined!

Message Received on 37th Street! 

I was recently extended an invitation to teach a meditation workshop to top-level executive business women in New York City as a part of an innovative business leadership initiative called Breaking Glass. (Remember the name because it directly relates to the “sign” I received.)

My offering for the Breaking Glass Series was Creative Solutions for Clearing Limits. I’d never been to New York so this was truly an exciting opportunity. A new business leadership workshop in the Big Apple! What more could I ask for?

Since the workshop was about clearing limits I definitely had to clear a few limits of my own to teach it. The business aspect alone was daunting. How do you bring meditation to already successful women business leaders? After my first “deer in the headlights, can I do this?” feeling, I grounded and set to work putting together a program.

As with all my energy work, prior to the event, I asked for a sign to show me that it not only was working for the attendees but for myself as well.

The Answer to “Was the Workshop Effective?”

The last night in New York the organizer of the event and I were on our way back to the hotel after dinner and instead of heading to the room we decided to go for a celebratory nightcap. We walked into the bar next to our hotel only to be told they just requested “last call” but the rooftop bar was open. Truth be told if we’d know there was a rooftop bar we would have gone there in the first place so up we went.

The bar had a very cool atrium type (glass) ceiling. Other than what was blocked by the ceiling support beams you could see the New York city skyline through the glass. As we were relaxing and celebrating the success of our combined and individual New York events over a glass of Prosecco the organizer, who also participated in the workshop, told me she had received a letter that day hiring her as an independent consultant to analyze and oversee a large upcoming conference. In many ways this was a dream come true for her. Her emotions ran free and tears started to flow as she (and I) embraced what happened within 24 hours of the workshop.

With tears of joy (for her) in my eyes,  I looked up and saw they were opening the ceiling of the atrium to the night sky. THEY LITERALLY MOVED THE GLASS CEILING! Right in front of us was the lit up Empire State Building against a night sky filled with stars! It was one of the most breathtaking sites I’ve ever seen. The moment was more powerful than I could have imagined. There I was, in New York with the amazing woman who  brought me there, celebrating clearing limits under a limitless night sky with the Empire State Building’s antennae spires pointing to the cosmos. I will also add, the picture I took doesn’t do it justice.

Coincidence? I don’t think so. Too many things had to happen to get us to that very place at that very moment. Every decision we made that night lead us to see what we needed to see to acknowledge our journey. It showed us there are no limits because we can simply clear them. Move them aside. Release them.

The message was loud and clear, acknowledged and received. Although the results of the workshop are still unfolding, the sign I asked for showed itself in grand fashion. I call this, for lack of a better word, a miracle but perhaps the miracle on 37th street was no miracle at all. Perhaps it was simply showing us there are no limits except for the ones we hold on to.

Keep doing the inner work you’re doing. Ask for a sign that it’s working even if the true results take time to manifest. Everything is energy. There are limitless possibilities and yes, there are signs that will show you in bright lights there are miracles yet to unfold.~Shine Your Light Debbie
