Miracles happen, whether you believe it or not. Just the simple fact that you and I are here and alive, is in itself a miracle, isn’t it?
I’ve had a miraculous experience myself. I wonder if I’ve ever mentioned this, but I survived a major road accident two years back. I’ll come to that a little later.
I can’t help calling it a miracle, and agree with its dictionary meaning that it is really an event manifesting a supernatural act of a divine agent because it was against all odds that I survived!
Or, should I just treat it as an event that was really a coincidence that beats all probabilities.
Maybe I should term the word miracle as a rarest of rare happening, but those who believe in miracles think otherwise.
“Miracles only happen if you believe in miracles.” ~ Paulo Coelho
Are Miracles Divine
Don’t get me wrong – this post is not about magic or superstition.
However, good events that happen without any convincing explanation, or with unbelievable results, often force people to think of miracles in divine terms.
Someone is diagnosed with cancer, and the doctor gives them one month to live, but they live for more than five years. I’d say a miracle happened. Wouldn’t you feel the same way?
Somebody might have a tumor that needs to be removed surgically, but with prayers, that mass is gone!
What would you call it – a wrong diagnosis or perhaps a bad x-ray? I’d call it a miracle or a miraculous healing. Wouldn’t you too?
A man speaks a language he’s never ever learned. How does he do it? Miracle again!
Recently it was in the news that a man, who had drowned in a ship, was found alive and rescued after three days.
There are also cases of people coming out alive from the rumbles of buildings after many days of their collapse due to an earthquake in which hundreds die.
Even news of people surviving air crashes, or remaining alive and unhurt even after falling from great heights are incidents no less than a miracle.
You see so many cases, where perhaps the person who goes through such a lot was meant to die, but they survive. What would you call that? I’d say it was a miraculous escape.
“The most incredible thing about miracles is that they happen.” ~ G.K. Chesterton
A Miracle Happened in My Life Too
As I mentioned earlier – I survived a life threatening road accident when I was just a short distance away from home, while returning from a local tour.
We were traveling by car, with my husband driving and kids behind. I was sitting in front and it was a very normal journey, with lots of happy moments that we gathered from a week’s trip to a nearby city.
My husband didn’t notice that there was a patch of road under repairs, and before he could slow down, a sharp stone burst one of the tires of the car.
Because of the speed, the car got out of control and somersaulted a few times. The car landed a little distance off the road, on the driver’s side.
Fortunately, my kids and hubby were unhurt and intact in the car, but I had flown off and landed a few meters away and suffered a major head injury.
As luck would have it, my husband was safe and I received immediate help. I was transported to a nearby small country hospital in time.
I did get a few stitches to stop the bleeding, and I was unconscious for a long period of time before I was taken to the proper city hospital.
It took me about 2-3 months to fully recover. In the following months, I read of many similar road accidents, and in ALL such cases, people didn’t survive. Why me? Why did I survive? I still wonder!
I didn’t want to write about myself or all that I went through, but in my heart of hearts, I just know that a miracle happened that evening, which saved me to tell you the story.
My husband says that perhaps there was a guardian angel who wanted me to live – who pushed me safely to the side, because my work wasn’t complete in this world.
Or shall I say it was the power of my subconscious willpower to fight it all out and come back to life. Or maybe it was the prayers of my loved ones that brought me back.
I was gone – but I was pulled back because it was not my time to go perhaps, and here I am 🙂
What would you call it? Miracles happen, and this is my part of a real incident. What’s your miracle healing incident?
“I have found in life that if you want a miracle you first need to do whatever it is you can do – if that’s to plant, then plant; if it is to read, then read; if it is to change, then change; if it is to study, then study; if it is to work, then work; whatever you have to do. And then you will be well on your way of doing the labor that works miracles.” ~ Jim Rohn
How Miracles Happen in Real Life
Because you don’t have any control over the above-mentioned events, there’s nothing you can do about them except be grateful to life or some greater power.
However, there are miracles that you can create for yourself, in your life, by being in total control. You do that on a continual basis, in every phase of your life, in ways that seem normal to you.
Sometimes you feel lost, confused, and frustrated with life, and then something happens that changes your life. Well, that something happens because of your efforts as you actually do that yourself.
As the power to change your life also lies in your hand, that too is a miracle when you work towards making it happen.
Getting what you want is actually not an accident. Like it’s said that if you wish for something with all your heart and mind, even the Universe starts working that in your favor.
Things happen without and beyond your expectations, and you end up accomplishing the toughest tasks that you thought were impossible.
”Miracles happen every day. Not just in remote country villages or at holy sites halfway across the globe, but here, in our own lives.” ~ Deepak Chopra
Notice the Miracles Happening in Your Life
Every moment of your life is actually a miracle. Right from the time you are born, to the time you live your life, isn’t each passing moment a miracle? How do you notice such miracles?
Try out these ways to see miracles occur in your life –
• Try to remember incidents that dramatically changed your life. It could be things like an accident, important meeting, some medical crisis, or even an adventure. Perhaps you survived such incidents or went through miracle healing.
• Recollect any weird but true experience you’ve gone through. Perhaps a book, song, or a stranger answered an important question that was on your mind. Or perhaps you had a dream one night that came true the next day.
• Look back at the time when you got married, or when you became a parent, or perhaps important events of your career. Perhaps help arrived suddenly just when you needed it.
• You were broke or lost, and suddenly you got financial help or found your way when you least expected it. What would you call all such sudden happenings that were beyond mere coincidence? I would just call them miracles!
You hear of miracles, but those are the ones in the form of physical healing, something that science cannot explain. However, each one of you can take control and make miracles happen in your life.
“Miracles don’t happen. You make them happen. They’re not wishes or dreams or candles on a cake. They’re not impossible. Reality is real. It’s totally and completely under my control.” ~ Julie Anne Peters
Making Miracles Happen
Here are a few steps to help you create your own miracle.
1. Be clear about the miracle you want
You need to clearly imagine or visualize the miracle you desire. You need to concentrate on the end result of what you desire, not how you will achieve that or the means to it.
2. Expect the best
You attract that which you fear, expect, or love. So, always expect the best, and the best will happen to you. Even when there are negative circumstances, keep thinking positive.
Remember, if you expect less than what you want, you will get less.
You need to expect that everything is working in your favor and highest good. That’s exactly how the law of attraction will work in your favor too.
3. Release your fears
Watch what you think. You need to let go of your fears and negative thoughts. When you think negatively, your mind will attract all negative energies, which will block your miracle.
Of course, being human, you cannot stop negative thoughts from entering your mind. But you need to start believing and thinking positively. This will make you feel empowered.
You also need to open your mind to all possibilities, without wishing for things as you want it.
4. Visualize yourself
You need to see yourself as how you’d like to be. If you wish to be wealthy, you need to see yourself as being a wealthy person and enjoying a wonderful lifestyle.
Be clear about your present situation, but think about what you want and desire. Leave aside what you don’t want or where you are presently.
Think ahead, and remain positive to make miracles happen in your life.
5. Keep your miracle a secret
You don’t have to talk about your miracle or share it with others. That’s because you never know how an envious or negative person might contribute negative energy to what you are thinking.
Share as little as possible, if at all, with just a handful of people if you want.
Check out this video about how miracles occur in your life by Carrie Green, as she’s explained the various ways beautifully.

“There are two ways to live: You can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.” ~ Albert Einstein
Life is all about the choices you make. Once you are clear about what you need or want, your mind becomes calmer and is focused.
Thus, you can take the right direction for your choices and a clear channel for your decisions about what to do, whether finding your soul mate, choosing the right doctor, or any other task.
And don’t forget to pray, whether for yourself or for others or being prayed for by others. They always help 🙂
Perhaps if you all look for a miracle to occur every day instead of listening to all the negativity around, you might find the miracle of faith, joy, and tranquility in your life.
“Don’t give up before the miracle happens.” ~ Fannie Flagg
So, what are you waiting for – go and make miracles happen in your life 🙂
