Once upon a time, only saints could perform miracles. But in the 21st century, more and more sincere and dedicated spiritual practitioners are learning how to lead truly miraculous lives. What is their secret? There is no secret to living miraculously. It’s all quite logical and even scientific, once you learn a few basic spiritual and energetic practices.
You just need to keep raising your consciousness and gently opening your heart until you begin to live miraculously. Living miraculously is not about modifying your behaviour. It is about rising above the part of your mind that is just fearfully dreaming your life away.
Some of you may well have had glimpses of your eternal soul, but you now urgently need to keep raising your consciousness until you are connected to your soul, or core being, all of the time. The key to living miraculously in this world is to raise our consciousness up to a higher level and to open up our closed, wounded hearts. Then we just have to keep our hearts open by releasing our fearful thoughts, and attack thoughts, that constantly appear in our lower mind like uninvited guests at a house party.
We all harbour at least some dark thoughts of fear, hatred and revenge and this negative energy does us all a lot of harm. Unfortunately, most of us have absolutely no idea that we are poisoning our own selves with such thinking.
Every time you entertain any fearful or doubtful thoughts, you lose vibrant energy and contaminate your inner space. All human beings cling fearfully to life and this anxious clinging brings them so much unnecessary suffering. But what if your whole being was to be so brightly illuminated that there was no room within you for even a twinge of fear?
Rescuing yourself from being imprisoned in endless fear and darkness is a highly skilled task. There are so many beautiful souls drowning in the fear and darkness of lower human consciousness. Please do not go on doing this to yourself. Keep raising your consciousness on a daily basis through your daily meditation practice and through practising tai chi, chi kung or yoga on a very regular basis.
Keep practising until you notice that you have become heart-centred rather than head-centred. Westerners are brought up to believe that thinking can solve all of their problems, but this is simply not true. Because all your thinking about the future is tinged with fear, your excessive thinking actually weakens your whole system.
Your heart is much more connected to your soul than your thinking mind, and so once you raise your consciousness and connect to your heart, you are definitely on the right path. However, you do have to keep going on this path day in and day out, or your consciousness will slide back down into fear and darkness once again. Never take even one day off from your spiritual practices because you have so little precious time left to liberate your soul this lifetime. It really is tragic to see genuine practitioners going backwards on the path simply because they stopped practising for a while.
To begin to live miraculously, you need to make one crucial choice day by day. You need to choose to open your heart and keep it open at all times so that you can begin to transcend your physical body and your lower, fearful mind. Once you have opened your heart, you can then begin to utilise your heart’s higher intelligence to serve your spirit and to guide you back home to wholeness and lasting happiness.
Once your heart is open, it can connect to, and then reflect back to you, a universal love and wisdom that is out of this world. So, the more you open your heart and fill it with love and light, the more you can just know beyond all thinking and all perception. Then, you will no longer need to struggle to decide which path to take in life. All will be revealed to you by a higher wisdom that absolutely knows what is in your highest interest.
Moreover, once your heart is fully open to receive infinite, divine love, you will no longer be in thrall to the ego’s hopeless search for external love. You will no longer give your power away to another human being, or insist that your happiness depends on their continuing love for you.
All human beings are longing for love but then most of us make such a mess of our loving relationships. Why? Because we insist that someone on the outside of us has to belong to us before we can live in love. But trying to own another soul is not true love. It is egoic neediness at its worst.
Someone who ‘loves’ you so much that they threaten to kill themselves if you leave them, does not love you, they are emotionally blackmailing you and trying to imprison you for their own selfish ends. What on earth is loving about that?
In fact, real, eternal love is not personal at all. It is just an incredibly high and blissful energy that holds everything together in ultimate reality. However, before you return to this heavenly state of mind and heart, you first have to learn to use your mind to serve your heart’s highest intention. You have to learn to still your mind, raise your vibration and then connect to a higher light that will illuminate your heart. Then, you just keep dipping into love and light over and over again until you are living miraculously for your highest good and for the highest good with everyone you meet.
I sometimes joke with my students that living miraculously like this is ‘Mission Impossible’. It is not! It just takes an awful lot of dedication and determination to keep our hearts wide-open when faced with all the fearful events of our troubled world. But, as I also keep telling my students, making a real effort every day of our lives to still our lower minds, open our hearts and connect to Spirit is so worth it!
Once you connect to Spirit, a divine love and power will guide you every step of the way back home to infinite love and infinite possibilities. Spirit will overlook all of your errors –all of your aggressiveness and all of your fears. Spirit knows only your eternally beautiful, grace-filled essence, and through communicating ceaselessly with your essence, Spirit will guide your whole life miraculously. But only if you take that crucial choice and listen to it constantly, rather than continuing to be in thrall to the raucous shrieks of your ever-fearful egoic-self!
