Miracles always tickle me. They so often come in the form of pleasant surprises and the common denominator for most miracles, I find, appears to be the powerful, healing force of Love. But, Love is usually accompanied by its partner, Intuition. They work together perfectly. When you fill up with feelings of genuine Love, you are at your intuitive best– a winning combination for creating large and small miracles. Here is one such miracle involving intuition that took me by surprise.
Early one very warm, fall morning, I was contemplating how I could best help a young patient, Elisa,* who was grieving a grandparent she deeply loved. I quieted myself and asked my source of intuition, my Higher Wisdom, what might best work to help her in the healing process. I addressed my request to my Higher Self, including my angels, as well as to the specific energy of her grandmother, Anne*, who had been tragically killed in a car accident. I trusted and intuitively knew that the power of Love trumps death, enabling me to receive the best possible help from the one being who loved Elisa so unconditionally.
What intuitively came to me, quite clearly, was a picture of a book and the idea of asking Elisa to consider writing about precious times spent with her grandmother– including holidays, vacations, visits to the library, bookstore or market. The idea of creating a lovely book, including her own illustrations for each story or adventure that she would write about, felt so right to me. It seemed such a perfect way to celebrate the relationship she had with her grandmother, while, at the same time, adding to her grandmother’s legacy. I had even envisioned the cover she might create, along with several possible titles.
Within a few hours, after arriving at Elisa’s home and going for a walk around the grounds (filled with memories of times spent gardening with her grandmother,) Elisa and I sat down to talk outside on the patio overlooking .the garden.
I recall proposing the idea to Elisa and was delighted that she seemed comfortable with the concept of writing a book of her own about her grandmother and herself. We talked of the kinds of stories she could write that might include precious memories of times shared with her grandmother. A short time later, Elisa’s mom joined us and we shared with her the idea of the book project. Imagine the surprise I experienced when I learned from her mother that Elisa’s grandmother and Elisa had been actively and enthusiastically planning to write their own book, filled with their special moments and adventures
It was just after I had explained that the idea for the creation of the book came to me as soon as I had asked Elisa’s grandmother for assistance in helping her grand-daughter, that Elisa’s mom’s eyes and mine met. In that moment, we both felt that my receiving my vision of a book was more than a coincidence, given that this had been something both grandmother and grand-daughter had wanted to do and had discussed so many times.
Both Elisa’s mom and I were aware of the power of love, that love does not die and that Elisa’s grandmother’s love for her grand-daughter was so strong that she wished to be involved in the healing of her grand-daughter. Knowing that we were all on the same page felt wonderful. This reinforced my awareness that when I ask for intuitive guidance for my healing work, I am given what is particularly meaningful and helpful. What needs to be emphasized here is that I had not known that I had received what I needed until I was given information from Elisa’s mom that validated this.
Life is so delicious when we journey with the awareness that we are not alone, that all we need to do is to quiet ourselves and ask for guidance and wisdom, and then trust that. By carefully listening to our intuition, we receive what we need.
As a human being, you arrive into this lifetime with exquisite gifts of unconditional love, impeccable intuition and awareness of your connection with your divine nature and your soul. These gifts with which you were born enable you to see, hear and sense the presence of universal, divine energy which, regrettably, within just a few years seems to disappear.
Your life’s journey, then, is to do what you need to do to remember the divine, unconditionally loving being that you are and that you are never, ever alone. Whenever I remember and experience the awareness of who I really am (that I Am a part of the Universe or All There Is -often referred to as God), via my intuitive knowing, I know I am fully in the moment, fully conscious and fully experiencing joy. These are the times I may especially smile quite broadly, am truly at peace and wish to lovingly celebrate life and myself.
Miracles are a function of you filling with love for yourself, first, and, then, for others. Remembering is reclaiming the power with which you were born, a power which allows you to blossom into a remarkable, loving, intuitive soul. When you Know that you Know and that this Knowing is yours for the asking, you possess wealth that money cannot buy.
As you consciously feel, honor and breathe into your cells the very energy that created the world, be aware that you breathe in your connection to the Divine – to All There Is – and that you and this divine energy are One. You are as you choose to see, feel and imagine your Self being. This is your Power. Celebrate, honor and respect it – and treasure it with all the Love that you are. It is you; It is your Divinity.
May your journey bring you smiles, comfort, large and small miracles, inspiration and the ability to fully love who you truly are.

There are only two ways to live your life – one is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle. I choose the latter.
