How to Perform Miracles in Your Everyday Life

Who can perform miracles?

Is it just super-talented people? Like Evel Knievel, riding his motorcycle over buses and sharks. Or Jesus and his light-footed aquatic antics.

Or can anyone perform miracles?

As you can tell by the title of this post, my answer to this question is a big, fat YES! We can all perform miracles. Regular folks like you and me!

And I’m gonna tell you how.

The coolest thing about performing miracles is that it’s super easy. Indeed, there’s only one thing you need to know:

Get aligned.

What do I mean by aligned?

I mean tapping into Source. Obi-Wan Kenobi called it the Force. I call it the Divine. Quantum physicists call it the Quantum Field.

It’s the energy that creates everything: rivers and stars and comets – and you. Because this energy created you, you have access to it. And, with it, you can perform miracles.

But you can’t perform miracles if you don’t remember what you’re made of. And you can’t perform miracles if you think miracles aren’t possible.

Some people get into metaphysical thinking so they can manifest lots of stuff. They do affirmations about having a fat bank account and then become disappointed when the affirmations don’t work.

But that’s because they didn’t get aligned first.

When you get aligned first, you let Source direct the process. Manifesting money may end up being part of the process, but it’s certainly not the only thing.

And if you put material success as your only goal, you’re never going to be happy.

In my personal experience, being aligned with Source is the best thing in the world. And, paradoxically, when I’m aligned with Source, I’m more likely to attract all kinds of material goodies to myself, including money.

And sometimes it’s not about money at all.

My dad is a great example of someone who has demonstrated the power of alignment.

He’s is a scientist, so his skills have been evident in the field of biology, which he taught for years. He’s into trees and plants and the world of nature.

Where he really busts out his super-powered mojo, however, is with animals.

Years ago, my dad came to visit. At the time, my partner and I had a bird. The bird’s name was Joe and he was a cockatiel.

Joe had a mind of his own. My partner’s kids tried to teach him to talk. They tried to teach him tricks. Joe wasn’t having it.

Joe liked to sleep and eat and clean his feathers. As far as he was concerned, that was as good as it got.

And then he met my dad.

One day during his visit, my dad sat down next to Joe’s cage. He held out his hand like this:

Joe perked up.

We were amazed. Joe had never cared what we had done with our hands. What was so special about my dad’s hand?

I’ll tell you what was special. My dad is an animal whisperer. He’s aligned with the same Energy the animals are. I know he doesn’t see himself as doing anything special. He’s just being himself.

But the animals respond to it.

My dad then proceeded to tip his hand like this:

As he did, Joe moved with him.

We’d never seen anything like it. Joe was not a trained bird. Joe had refused all our ideas about the tricks he should perform.

But there he was, moving in sync with my dad’s hand. Up and down, following everything my dad did.

This episode became legend in our house. After my dad left, we all attempted to get Joe to follow our hands.

Nothing.

But we didn’t have the special alignment mojo-thingie that my dad did. We weren’t biologists who had an affinity for the natural world like my dad does.

A major trick to this whole alignment gig is to figure out your area of alignment.

Maybe it’s writing. Maybe it’s dance. Maybe it’s nature. Maybe it’s sports.

What’s the area in life that makes you come alive? Because that’s where the mojo is. The energy you feel in response to that area is the energy that creates worlds.

And it’s the energy that makes miracles happen.

Just ask Joe.

    That’s so cool how Joe responded to your dad! We have a kitty-cat who could use some of that about right now. Lil Orphan Annie stays in hiding, only making occasional forays to devour Paul Newman’s Organics. Oh well, all things in due time.

    Yes, it’s so about alignment, which is about feeling happy and thus lining up with our joyful Inner Source Energy. Everything in our experience, including traffic, the boss, our partner, the check-out clerk, and our pets are responding to our degree of feeling good. When we feel good, we bring out the best in our environment and manifest our desires, tangible and intangible. It is so worth it to practice good-feeling thoughts.

    Thanks for another terrific post. Yes, we can perform miracles when we’re aligned, but they really won’t seem so miraculous. They’ll just seem like the normal, delightful course of things because they happen again and again.

      Hi Karen,

      Yeah, maybe I should send my dad down over to your house, to coax Lil Orphan Annie out of hiding. Though I suspect she’s probably feeling like she’s doing exactly what she wants and doesn’t need any help from anyone!

      Nothing better than being aligned, that’s for sure for true! :)

    That’s so cool! My dad is an animal whisperer himself. He grew up on a sugar plantation riding and sharing his sugar cane with his horse. He always talked about how in tune he was his horses and dogs, and you can tell it’s from a deep live and respect.

      Hi Kyla!!

      So awesome to see you here! So sorry it took me so long to respond to this. I was down in LA and away from the blog for about three weeks and I just got back. So great to see your comment here. I love that your dad is an animal whisperer too. The world needs more of them! :)

      Stop by again any time!
