3 Simple Steps That Can Transform Your Life

3 Simple Steps That Can Transform Your Life
“I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.” ~ Hermann Hesse I remember when my life was a complete mess. I felt so utterly lost and didn’t even know where to start in my healing process. Because my life was in such chaos, I assumed that only something big could help transform my life. Maybe a long and tedious self-help program or years of counseling were the only options. And then things changed. Day by day, I discovered a profound truth that still accompanies me today: Oftentimes, the solution for complex problems can be found in the simplest practices. In the two years since the start of my inner journey, I can report that the most impactful changes in my life have come from very simple practices like breathing, sitting in silence, contemplating nature, being still. These practices are all part of my “toolbox of inner transformation”. But if I had to pick my favorite of the pack, it would be the practice I call “Priming for Miracles”. Here’s how it goes. But first a disclaimer: you may not be able to handle all the intense, amazing things that come your way once you start using this practice. Ha! Step-by-step guide to Priming for Miracles  Step 1. Every morning, when I open my eyes, I smile and say out loud to the universe: “Good morning life! What miracles await me today?” Then I get out of bed, make some coffee, and go about my day. I remain intensely present, even through the most mundane tasks. I’m eagerly anticipating miracles to occur every minute of the day. The reason I’m anticipating them is because I planted the question in my brain as soon as I opened my eyes. I essentially primed my brain for miracles right out of bed. By planting that question, I directed my awareness toward the observation of miracles in everyday life. Here’s an example of how this works. Suppose you’re standing next to someone in a packed parking lot. Now let’s say I whisper in your ear “find the blue cars” but I don’t say anything to the person next to you. At the end of this exercise, who will see more blue cars? You or the person standing next to you? Because you were “primed”, you’ll see so many more blue cars than the person who was not directed. The same applies to miracles. As I go about my day, I see so many of them pop up. And the more miracles I witness, the more excited and grateful I feel. Witnessing miracles ascends my energy. I can live in awe, wonder and joy, even amidst my daily routine. And because “like attracts like”, the energy of awe and wonder also attracts to me more miracles. The more excited I get at witnessing a miracle, the more they flow in my direction. Not only that, but the more I can witness little miracles, the bigger they get. Step 2. At the end of the day, as I’m going to sleep, I again speak out loud to the universe: “Thank you for all the miracles today!” And then I specifically enumerate them. “Thank you for the butterfly that flew by my face as I was running in the forest!” “Thank you for the flowers that are blossoming in my garden!” “Thank you for the person who was rude to me at the grocery store!” “Thank you for the warm, nutritious meals I ate!” “Thank you for the traffic jam, as I was running late to an appointment!” “Thank you for the bird that sang at my window, as I prepared lunch!” Now, you may be wondering why I included “bad” things like rude people and traffic jams in my list of miracles. There’s a reason for that. The person who was rude to me at the grocery store gave me the opportunity to practice patience and loving-kindness. The traffic jam allowed me to pause, take a deep breath, and flow more with life. Being stuck gave me perspective. The world wasn’t ending just because I was late. At the end of the day, the rude person and the traffic jam made me more patient, kind, and gave me greater perspective on life. Isn’t that a miracle? Step 3. As I’m drifting off to sleep, I make sure to smile. In that smile is a silent but powerful realization, which I say out loud too: “I’m so eager and excited for tomorrow! There are so many miracles to witness!” And that’s it. I do this every single day. Try it and let me know how you do! I can honestly say that this simple practice has completely changed my life in ways that I cannot even articulate. Or maybe I can: “It’s all a miracle. ”This article was written by Christina Lopes.
