Hard times test us. They challenge our beliefs that The Universe is just a beautiful place, that we are supported in what we are trying to accomplish within our lives, and they especially challenge our belief in ourselves.
I know. I’ve been there, and sometimes still return to that particular Doubting Door, poking my head in to the Room of Despair.
I truly don’t enjoy being in that room, so I work tremendously hard to help keep my entire life, and my inner reality, out of this dark room.
But sometimes, and I’m sure you’ve experienced this is likely to life, sometimes it gets really, very difficult to keep awake and alert to the miracles within our lives. Today I was talking with a few I’m coaching, and that’s precisely what we wound up speaking about a course in miracles apple podcast How hard it is to keep awake of despairing habits and patterns that sap our energy, make us not want to carry on to try, and get us to believe that we’ll never have our dreams come true.
Where would be the miracles then, Oh Miracles Coach?!!
Believe it or not, that answer to that particular question rests within what of the question itself. All we have to do, and I understand it’s difficult to do sometimes, but all we have to do is change the spirit of this question.
So rather than asking this question as if we’ve been cheated or tricked about miracles being all around us, we simply shift the spirit of the question to one of wonder and curiosity.
So we ask, “Yeah, where ARE those miracles hiding in my entire life today? I’d like to see if I could see them!” And we pursue that search.
Here’s a listing of miracles I made recently, when I was feeling challenged to keep’up’about my coaching business:
