Recipe for a MiracleJune 18, 2012
Several years back, while I was taking some classes at Unity Village in Missouri, I performed an instant healing. I went there to take some Spiritual Enrichment Education courses and one of the classes I took wash called Jesus’ Teachings. I took 4 classes, each class lasted two hours a day for five days and the healing happened on day three. During class on the third day, we were learning about the miracles Jesus performed. We studied the miracles and noticed there was a pattern to all of them.
Each time he performed a miracle, there was a formula he followed.
- First he first meditated on it to see if it was his to do
- When he got an answer of yes or no, he would know whether it was his to do or not
- If the answer was yes, he had a fervent knowing that it was his to do and he could perform the miracle
- To make it more believable to his audience, he would often create some theatrics around the miracle like poking fingers in ears or spitting on tongues.
- The theatrics were not what caused the miracle to happen, it was always the knowing (not believing)
Jesus constantly said that we could do the same things as he but we did not believe and that was what kept us from doing the same things. I knew after this intense study and experience at Unity Village that anything Jesus could do, we could all do too, we just had to get out of our own way.
The teacher for the class had her hand in a splint that day. On Monday she wasn’t wearing it but on Tuesday and Wednesday she was. On Wednesday, the day we were studying miracles, someone asked her about the splint and she told us that she had gotten into a car accident several years before and periodically her hand would hurt so she would wear a splint. When we went on break after the first hour of class that day, I found a quiet place, did as Jesus and meditated on the question as to whether healing her hand was mine to do. The answer I got was “Yes.” Then I asked “What should I do?” the answer I got was “Just Know.” I responded with another question and asked, “Just know, I don’t need to do anything?” and again I got the answer, “Just Know.”
I went back to the classroom, held her hand, looked into her eyes and said, “I don’t know how but I know your hand will be healed.” Someone came in, 2 seconds later and said, “Hey! Your hand is healed already!”
The next day, we arrived in class and she wasn’t wearing her splint. Someone asked her what happened to the splint and she said, “It was really strange, my hand feels better than it has since before the accident. I had absolutely no pain in it this morning and that hasn’t happened in years.” The rest of the week, she didn’t have her hand in the splint anymore.
I had to send her a written essay via email within a month of the end of the class to get credit for it. For the next year or so, we would periodically correspond. Then one day, about a year or two later, I asked her how her hand was and if that healing was permanent. She said “You know, I had totally forgotten about it. My hand is fine and I no longer need to wear the splint.”
A course in Miracles states that there is no order of difficulty in miracles. When Jesus said, “I Am the Way and the truth and the Light” he meant the still small voice that guides us through our lives, the knowing that we are one with our source. The whisper that guides you is your divine connection. Jesus had it, you have it, I have it, it is our universal connection to source. The connection is the same, regardless of your religion, upbringing or beliefs. Atheists have it, Mystics have it and people from all religious backgrounds have it. The difference between most of us and Jesus is our ability to truly believe, trust and KNOW that the still small voice is God guiding us. This knowing marks the difference between Jesus’ ability to perform miracles and our inability to perform them. We allow doubt fear and insecutity to cloud our connection and therefore since we doubt, we do not succeed.
To perform miracles in our lives and the lives of others, we must release our doubt and simply trust that still small voice that guides our moves. You can call it God, you can call it Jesus, you can call it Buddha, you can call it your Self. The voice does not care what you call it, as long as you call it. When we have mastered our trust and faith in its authority, we become miracle workers and we realize our unity with the guiding consciousness of the universe.
