How to Live a Miraculous Life

The topic of how to live a miraculous life is one that comes through in many of my lectures, books, and video blogs. As a student and teacher of metaphysics and the text A Course in Miracles, I’ve always subscribed to the belief system that a miracle is simply a shift in perception.

When we choose to align our thoughts with the thoughts of love, peace, grace and compassion, that’s when we begin to experience miraculous changes in our life. The simplicity is that we just have to begin to pay attention to our thoughts. We have to become more mindful and conscious of the thoughts that we’re choosing, the words that we’re using, and the actions that we’re taking.

When we start to become responsible for the thoughts we think, we have a greater awareness of how we want to change and what we want to shift. Once you have become willing to look at your crazy and call it out, you can offer it up and ask spirit to change it.

From the perspective of A Course in Miracles, spirit is like a wise, kind teacher or best friend who is there to be almost an intermediary between your low-level ego thoughts and your high-minded spiritual thoughts. When you ask spirit for help, whatever you believe spirit may be, you’re asking an internal teacher to take that low-vibe way of thinking and, as Marianne Williamson says, return your thoughts to love.

Whenever we’re not in loving, compassionate, kind, generous, graceful ways of thinking, we’re out of alignment with the source of who we are. All you have to do is pay attention to the low-vibe, negative ways of thinking — the attack, the judgment, the separation — and ask spirit to help reorganize it. You can say, “Thank you, spirit, for taking this from me. Thank you for making me see this differently.” You can call it whatever you want, whether spirit or inner guide or inner teacher, whatever resonates with you. Whatever name you use, you’re inviting in an invisible force to remind you of who you are.

The guidance you receive can come in various forms. You may sense a presence come over you, or you may have a spiritual assignment come your way to remind you who you are. Or maybe a beautiful experience happens where you see a message scrawled on a wall or hear a song playing in a store, and you’re reminded of your love nature.

All these experiences we have are just lessons in the classroom we’re living in. The world is a classroom. Each discomfort, each grievance, each moment we choose to attack, is an opportunity to get back in school and get back into the practice of changing our minds.

And we don’t have to do it for ourselves — we can ask spirit to build that bridge for us, to help us return to love. Getting into the practice of witnessing the negativity, asking for help, paying attention to all the beautiful and magnificent lessons around us, and listening to that guidance, is the pathway to living a miraculous life.

Let me know how you’ve been using these tools and what you’ve witnessed about your own behavior or thoughts. And let me know what kind of guidance you’ve received!

These tools are incredibly simple and powerful and we can use them anytime, anywhere. Get into the habit and I know they will serve you.

  1. I have just started listening to Gabby’s audio book The universe has your back and am do the 40 day “may cause miracles” . I had to move from a well paying job in NY due to my husbands job relocation to Florida. I am having a difficult time trying to find a job in Florida and it consumes my every thought 24/7. I keep second guessing why I ever moved. I know I have so much fear and Gabby says to offer it up and give love but I just can’t seem to get past the fear and its eating up my gut . Is there a specific video of Gabby’s I should watch to help me get through this very fearful time . I feel having such negative thoughts and all this fear is definitely a cause of nothing good coming my way because I am surrounding my thoughts in such fear. I guess what I am saying is I keep witnessing my fear and say I give love but I feel its just talk and that I just don’t feel it in my gut. Thank you for your time.

    1. Hi Janet,

      I can totally relate to moving to a new area for your partners job. I did this for my fiancées dream job & I am a 50 yr old female who had a job, was gearing up to leave my job and follow my dream of opening my side-practice to a full time practice. A big career move. The
      Move has been harder than it was when I relocated in my 20’s & 30’s. I do know and believe that Connection is Key, however I don’t know anyone here to call & hangout with like I used to… Sound familiar? I am also adjusting to a different culture here. It’s the dead of winter and often many days are grey & cold. Regardless of how much I have on my plate, it’s work and not a lot of play. I don’t believe my partner can or should be my prime source to have fun & connect with as it creates too much pressure/strain on the relationship. Anyway, I thought I’d reach out and offer to connect. I started using google circle, FaceTime to connect with friends back home- it helps. If interested in connecting let me know : ) maybe there’s a way to exchange info privately- not sure?

    2. I am in a very similar situation that you are in, Janet. I left my job to have our second child. During my year of leave, we moved over an hour away from my office. Therefore I had to resign from my high paying job in search of something closer to home. Being home with my daughters is what I wish I could do but we have a mortgage and bills so that’s just not feasible. I feel as if job searching is taking over my happiness and quality time spent with my daughters. I need to turn my fears into love and stop doubting my qualifications and commitment to a balanced life so that I can feel as if the weight of the world isn’t on my shoulders. I need to trust that the Universe has my back and what is meant to be, will be. Sending love your way! xo

  2. Gabby. You always so right, and at the same time so happy and wonderful! Thanks for your teachings and the path you have pursued. You are a master of light in my way and I appreciate it. Blessings to you always! Laura

  3. I’ve really done my homework. I pray, I meditate, i hold intentions. And I manifest many things into form, but not my dearest wish, to meet my husband and start a family.
    I cant get myself to believe he’s on his way. I dont believe it’s coming. I realise thats where I fail.
    I’m so sick and tired of constantly being hang up on this. I dont want to live my life like this. Please help me.

    1. I have felt similarly and am using these prayers and mantras: Inner guide help me to believe. I am willing to believe. Inner guide help me to allow. I am willing to allow. I also remember that Gabby has taught me about surrendering and getting on your knees to pray. There is something about the physicality of it that helps me truly surrender. Sending you so much love and support!

      1. Wow, hank you Kim! I’m so very excited to use your mantras in my meditation tonight. I also just joined the miracle membership to hopefully improve my practice. Love and light <3

  4. Let’s keep it simple and enjoy the path… awww thank You Gabby!
    Yes I am willing to change my thoughts and i ask for guidance and help! You reminded me that then things will fall into place naturally and that my life will be a natural reflection (and not forced by myself) 🙂
    God bless you! Namaste, Nathalie

  5. You always hit the nail right on the head – exactly what I need to hear the “universe” sends you as the messenger! Thank you so much – I need to listen to this every morning! <3<3<3

  6. thanks Gabby – every day is work but with your guidance and listening to the audiobook Miracles Now – some are uncanny when they come up and it’s the one I’ve needed to hear that day! So much gratitude to you! big love, xx

  7. I have to say and ask what about more serious things like life threatening illness or unsolvable medical issues? Where is the help then? Not everyone gets guidance or help…wish the problem was as small as needing a date or bigger house, but what about more serious things and when you ask nothing happens…you believe for years…things get worse…ask and receive but again nothing….it is hard to hear a message do it and have hope shattered over and over. More medical mistakes, more health declines, more trys at this or that and nothing but a drained bank account…gotta say maybe it is not as simple as you state

  8. Definitely, positive thoughts and actions leads towards a higher self. Thank you for the divine guidance in the miracles of life.

  9. Hi Gabby,

    Loved this, and perfect timing. Quick Q, in regards to your sugar detox….Did you find when you went off sugar, you had less cravings?


    1. So often I think “I got this” and get into manifestation mode, thinking I am in control, and wonder why my life isn’t shifting exactly how I want it to. I forget to ASK and ALLOW! DER. Much thanks for the reminder!

  10. I have been listening to your book, The Universe Has Your Back, while I run and every time I turn it on I get hit with Ahha moments! So grateful you had the courage to write and put your ideas out there. I am feeling so supported.

  11. I’m so grateful for this message today! The “ask for help” step is the one I’ve been missing. Thanks for all you do! 🙂

  12. I am catching up on my Gabby <3 emails! I can not wait for the How to Live a Miraculous Life workshop! I wish I could see you in NYC, but I will be there in spirit and I will see you in LA! Can not wait, it's my birthday weekend! I am on March 4th! xoxoxoxox

  13. Hi Gabby,

    I love you work and it has inspired me through some of my life trials. If you are embarking on motherhood journey read the book spiritual midwifery by Ina May Gaskin. Thanks for all you do.

  14. Hi Gabby,
    I am a Miracle Member and I haven’t received the link to todays seminar. I have checked my junk, nothing there… is it possible to send it to me? I really want to join in!


  15. Hi Gabrielle,

    Thank you Angel. Love you.

    I am so in stuck 10 years already up and down in my finances. My fear of loosing is driving me crazy. I am so confused with truth: I have nice business I am in my dream house for 6 months and I have a fear I will loose it in 30 days. I am in fear because I cannot pay bills , I have all the tools I need to create my perfect life. What is with me ???? Please I am crying for help.
    Thank you.

  16. THANK YOU!! So many “Aha” moments – I am truly overwhelmed. I am now offering prayers to the universe and asking for guidance (a very big deal for a control-freak in denial) and can already feel the shift in me. Asking for help has always been very hard for me. Looking at situations as a way to learn a lesson through love has been truly eye – and heart – opening. I am just getting started with you on this life-long journey and I am loving every moment.
