Reflecting on the Miracle of Life

    The world is an amazing place. I am in awe of all the miracles every day. On a special day like today, it’s important to just take a moment and reflect on all the amazing things that have happened in your life so far.

    To give you a starting point, just think about this:

    The exact person you are, born to your parents, on the date and time you were born, with the DNA structure you have has about a 1:400,000,000,000 (that’s one in 400 trillion!) chance of existing.

    If you don’t call that miraculous, then I don’t know what is!

    One of my favorite quotes is from Albert Einstein, and I find it interesting that a genius with such a scientific mind would be talking about life in this way:

    “There are two ways to live: You can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”

    Life…unfolding

    There is so much that can unfold in your life. You are exactly where you need to be right now and all the things that you’ve experienced have led you to this place. But the future is a blank canvas, waiting for you to choose the outcome you desire. Once you understand how you truly are a creator in your life, and take responsibility for all that you have experienced, you become liberated to dream your biggest dreams. You become empowered to know that the world is ever-expanding and your dreams can come true.

    Taking responsibility for your actions in your life means understanding that you have created a lot of your experiences by default. When your worst fears become your reality, it’s because you’ve spend so much time focusing with fear, worry, anger, hurt, shame or any other emotion that is rooted in fear. Most of us do create our lives by default…until we learn that it can be another way.

    The emotions based in love include:

    • Contentment
    • Optimism
    • Excitement
    • Passion
    • Joy
    • Love (of course)

    When we are feeling those positive emotions, we are in a vibrational level or frequency to attract our dreams and goals.

    I have a tool that I’ve developed called the Joyometer, which is a simple scale to check in on your emotions. (You can download one at  ) It’s what I call a mood management system. When you fall into that downward spiral of negative emotions—those based in fear—you are taking a back seat and allowing your life to happen on a reactive basis. When you are in a positive frame of mind—in the emotions coming from love—you are the master of your universe. You make a conscious choice on how to react to situations. You are proactive and aware of your canvas and what you are putting there.

    Life…unfolded

    Just as a boat without a rudder will be tossed and turned in the ocean by the waves, living in fear has the same effect. But when you put that rudder down into the water, you can suddenly steer the boat and choose what direction you want to sail. Love is that rudder.

    One of the definitions of a rudder is “something that guides or directs”. When you choose to live your life coming from a place of love, miracles can become common in your life. It’s time to understand just how powerful we are as individuals and harness that power to create our dream lives.

    Just remember: You are a walking miracle.

    Take some time today to reflect and be truly grateful for this wonderful life you have.
