It surely was an emotional mind-boggling roller coaster ride during those 8 long years I’d spent in prison, often thinking that, I need a miracle from God right now. It was a tough, horrendous ordeal in all sense of the statement.
I’d really reached within and set forth on my writing from that very first day when the heavy steel prison doors slammed shut and locked behind me, which is why you are reading this right now.
I still see that my arduous effort, and succeeding at contracting with a mainstream publisher for my book series while in my eighth year, of the volatile and often violent din of the cell block, is what convinced a higher court to look deeper into at my case.
Yes, that accomplishment convinced a Judge to grant me a release 2 years early from my 10 year sentence over a foolish securities violation.
It was during a time of panic and abuses in the investment industry, and it was plain to see by everyone that the sentence handed me by an example setter Judge was overtly political.
But it did take time, a much longer time than I’d like, for the higher court to bring light to my pain.
When we think and wonder, “How to turn my life around:”
When there’s nowhere else to turn, I’ve learned I can always go deep within myself and create and chart out objectives and goals for whatever the journey might be.
(A quick note… when you’re finished here you may want to check out this related article about the exact same mindfulness techniques I use for searching within yourself that can be a nice and relaxing way to inner peace and success.)
I’ll be honest, it seems all my life since childhood when faced with life challenges, I’ve mumbled under my breath that, I need a miracle from God right now.
You are a human being? You likewise believe you are either man or woman?
You also have other roles you play in your life, like mom, daddy, brother, sister, staff member, company, manager, manager, in-law–and the list goes on.
Have you ever thought of yourself as a miracle worker, even when you’re thinking, I need a miracle from God right now?
I’m not meaning in the sense of your birth. Of course, that is a miracle.
I mean in the sense of your everyday life. Do you walk around all day and see yourself as a miracle worker, or do you continue to lowly state, I need a miracle from God right now?
If you did, just envision what does it cost when you’re thinking and muttering things like, “I need to change my life?”
Surely, greater you’d stand, less hurried you would be, and just how much worry you would live without.
(Here’s more on why changing core beliefs may turn your life around for a better life.)
Of the Ways to Change your Life:
You are a miracle worker, because you are the miracle, if you choose to be, and you don’t have to ask or state, I need a miracle from God right now.
You have been given that power in your oneness with your Creator.
A few years back and prior to his passing, I had the satisfaction of visiting with Wayne W. Dyer, live, at a conference in Florida.
He tossed back and forth the attributes of a miracle and all the other angles.
Although it was just one of many interesting discussions I’ve heard him speak on in the past, but this one instantly changed my life. He was crystal clear on what to do when we say to ourselves, I need a miracle from God right now.
While sitting there in the conference center, in big vibrant letters without thinking or without any effort I simply jotted down, “This world is mine because what I see I created within myself.”
The words just appeared on my notepad I always carry with me and have handy in my hip pocket. I’d started that hip pocket routine while in prison since we had no computer usage whatsoever.
The message that came from within me was so powerful it turned into a few tears down my cheek.
I had a warm secure feeling while sitting there, alone, with no one I knew there to witness and share what I was feeling.
The conference had ended and my inner Self was satisfied.
Back at the hotel I immediately picked up my copy of A Course in Miracles, opened it and landed on page 222 without a bookmark, Lesson 124 of ACIM workbook. My eyes looked down at the title of the lesson that said, “Let me remember I am one with God.”
Think Miracle when you say, “I Need to Change my Life:
The Course in Miracles teaches that, “The power of joined right-minded thoughts is the miracle.”
The power of our thoughts is a wonder waiting on the power of decision to take place. The power is within you and you never need to state, I need a miracle from God right now.
The miracle, and not magic, is always at your disposal.
It starts with our decision. We have the power of wonders.
Wonders of the world and for a better life, requires taking action.
It takes only an instant, perhaps a short minute, or a few more, to begin creating what you want and then reflecting it into your external world. It’s how you may easily live your life.
That’s all it takes to use the power of choice for ways to change your life, or to turn your life around completely.
A Course in Miracles further states, “It is your voice to which you listen as He speaks to you.”
The bottom line is:
If you want to have a better life in a better world, be that better world through the miracle by using the power of reflection within you.
