Do You Believe in Miracles?

Do You Believe in Miracles?

“Miracles happen, not in opposition to nature,
but in opposition to what we know of nature.”
– St. Augustine

I was reading a wonderful article the other day (from which I copied this quote) that got me thinking–yet more–about quantum physics and the nature of reality. Do you believe in miracles? I’ve always wondered if it mattered whether or not we had a logical explanation for what we call a miracle; would the miraculous event not still be just as wonderful if we did?

I’ve been obsessed with healing, illness and a proactive approach to health and vitality for as long as I can remember, not because I struggled with physical conditions, but because my mother did. My desire to help her was what started me on a path that took me from natural remedies to essential oils to quantum touch and reiki healing work to quantum physics itself. It’s a wild, exciting ride!

What makes us sick, what makes us better, what keeps us from getting sick (not drugs) in the first place? So many questions to ponder. And the big question; what constitutes a miracle?

Is not the human body a miracle in itself?

I do believe in the power of our thoughts. And I believe we will not experience a thing unless we believe it is possible to see it. If we don’t believe miracles are possible will we experience them, will we see them?

Since my son passed over I have asked him, many times, for signs. You can call them miracles or just an ability to communicate with people on the other side, but they come when I ask for them. Often I will ask for a message and before I have completed the thought-request I will notice a song in my head that is a perfect message in response to my present circumstances.

This happens in my healing work where spiritual support always comes to assist my clients. It’s not the exception: it’s the rule. Always in the room are close family members who have passed on before the client, but I don’t see them unless I look.

What if all of life is like that? What if miracles are all around us and we’re missing them? What if all the support and love and healing were there for the asking but we are not asking? We live in a miraculous world and we are miraculous beings with only an inkling of how miraculous we are and what possibilities exist for us.

Do you believe in miracles? Have you ever experienced something that felt like a miracle?
