"Positive thinking by itself does not work. Your embodied vision, partnered with vibrant thinking, harmonized with active listening, and supported with your conscious action - will clear the path for your Miracles."

The last few weeks have been filled with ‘miracles’ for me. Many things that I have prayed for, visualized, and worked towards for years have been manifesting right before my eyes. When I go through these stretches of abundance and fullness, there is a little part of me that really clings to how good it feels when things go my way. But mostly I am filled with gratitude and awe. And for me that is a missing element in the quote above. Gratitude is the key to the Universe.
Active listening and observing are really important too. I think way too often we get too fixed on how we think things ought to be and fail to be open enough to allow things to flow into our lives that might if we would expand our options beyond what we are used to. And we simply miss out on golden opportunities for joy, wisdom, and abundance. So in order to manifest miracles, we must be open and flexible. We must be attentive. We must be living in the moment. And, above all, we must be grateful.
When I first learned about having the power to manifest my own reality I thought, oh wow, this will be great. I thought it was a really easy way to “get what I wanted”. That I could simply just put out the thoughts and they would magically and quickly come to me. It took me several years to even begin to understand just how much intention and effort goes into creating my own reality.
I have learned that I need to take the time to sit with my intentions until they seem very clear to me. Then I hold those intentions with me each and every day, believing in myself the whole way. I think each intention I have should be for the highest good of my self, others, and the environment and if it doesn’t fit into that theme, I most likely don’t really need it in my life.
Life is not always easy, however, I can change the way I think something needs to seem in order to deem it as easy, good, or bad. When I take away my judgment about how a situation feels to me, it just is another lesson or opportunity to grow, which is always a blessing. Through writing, planning, and taking action on this path of miracles, while upholding my intentions, my manifestations and life wishes seem to come into view much quicker. For the abundance of learning of who I am, I am eternally grateful. For the more grateful I am, the more it circles back around to me.
