It’s a Miracle

A few years ago I gave my family a bird feeder for Christmas. We hung it outside in early January and waited and waited. Two weeks went by without any birds.

One morning after those two long weeks had passed I found myself at odds with my partner Scott. He’s a wonderful guy but I have a special knack of not noticing this at times.

As a feeling of separateness was beginning to consume me, there was a movement outside and when I looked out of my kitchen window, I saw not one but two beautiful cardinals.

Mr and Mrs Cardinal were at our feeder and they looked so content there together, sharing a meal.

I called out to Scott to come quick. I wanted him to witness the arrival of the birds. In that moment my excitement dissolved the separateness and I felt connected to Scott again just like that.

It felt like a miracle!

Miracles surround us everyday and it’s up to us to notice them.

A few weeks ago I was sitting at my kitchen table thinking a series of bewildering thoughts. I can be very good at that at times.

I wondered how I would get out of the emotional abyss I was falling in when I looked up and noticed the flowers in the vase on my table.
Tulips so exquisite tears came to my eyes.

I was falling, and yet I let those beautiful flowers catch me and my mood shifted, bringing a feeling of deep appreciation into my heart.

Another miracle!

There is nothing accidental or incidental about the miracles that occur during a ceremony. I tell my clients to look for the unexpected gems and because they believe in and are anticipating miracles, they are always revealed.

Within a ceremony a miracle might appear as the sudden ‘ah ha’ of truly knowing your next step, the deeply moving words of love and support offered by a friend, or the excitement of the shared experience of a warm rain shower.

Ceremonies are miracles we purposefully create. When our intentions are strong, ceremonies call in clarity, connection and celebration.

Are you willing to notice the miracles in your life?
