Name 10 miracles

If you were asked to name 10 miracles around you right now, could you do it? Go ahead and try. Name 10 miracles that surround you at this very moment in time. If you were able to list all 10, assuming that they all qualify as miracles, then you are one of a few.

Most people would find this task a lot more difficult than one would think but the truth is that miracles are around us all the time. So then why is it so difficult to name 10? Well, one answer is that we are so consumed by our individual problems and our daily lives that we don’t leave room in ours minds for miracles to occur.

Many of us could say that our minds are constantly racing but by learning to quite your mind you can then allow yourself to see the miracles that lie right in front of you.

What is a miracle?

A miracle is described by the dictionary as “a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.” That definition is quite lengthy and can be simplified to a concept much easier to grasp.

Zeenat defines a miracle as “a positive shift or change in perception.” The word “miracle” comes from the Latin word meaning “something wonderful” and that is exactly what a miracle is. According to “A Course in Miracles” by Helen Schucman, a miracle should have the following three characteristics: they are natural, they inspire gratitude, and they are not “harder” or “bigger” than one another.

How you can begin to see miracles

You can train yourself to see miracles just as you would train yourself to become good at an activity – with time and repetition. Every night, write down 10 miracles that you noticed that day. Do that every night and you will begin to notice them more frequently.

Being able to notice the miracles around you is simply another way of saying that you see life in a positive light. You will begin to notice the wonderful things in your everyday life and, therefore, see life in a more positive view and begin to enjoy it.
