Whenever I’m asked about the greatest lesson I’ve learned, my response is this: Happiness is a choice I make. It’s very easy to look for happiness outside ourselves — in a relationship, a dream job, the perfect body weight. When we chase happiness externally, we’re simply looking for God in all the wrong places.
The outside search is based on false projections we place on the world. These projections build up a wall against true happiness, which lies within us. I have come to learn that nothing “out there” can save you from the conflict that resides within. You must develop a rich inner life to enjoy every other aspect of life.
Each time we make this shift and choose happiness, we experience a miracle. Our mind shifts from fearful delusions and reconnects to our truth, which is love. Creating these shifts requires a dedicated commitment to choosing love.
To begin your commitment to new perceptions, start by paying attention to attack thoughts toward yourself and others. These negative thoughts are particularly dangerous because they can be so subtle and insidious that we might not even realize how much they’ve taken over our minds and stressed us out. But as fiendish as they are, they’re surprisingly easy to let go of. All it takes is a shift in perception.
You might be thinking, “That sounds groovy, but how do I make this shift?” The answer is simple: Pick a card! I’ve found that it’s much easier to stay committed to my miracle mindset when I have simple daily reminders to keep me on track. That’s why I created the new 62-card deck based on my New York Times best-selling book Miracles Now. This fully illustrated deck serves as a spiritual guide to expanding your miracle mindset. When in doubt, put your hand on the deck and say, “Thank you, divine guidance. I need a Miracle Now. Show me what you’ve got!” Trust the guidance you receive and let it inform your next right action.
The small shifts you’ll make with guidance from the deck are powerfully transformational. Check out this clip from my Miracles Now launch lecture, where I share just how awesome these shifts can be. One really cool thing about this video is that it was shot a year ago, and on stage I was manifesting the deck I’m launching today!
Since publishing my book Miracles Now I’ve received countless emails from readers that their daily Miracle Messages helped them change old patterns, ramp up their happiness and commit to their spiritual path. And I paid attention! Thanks to all this awesome feedback, I decided to create the Miracles Now card deck. This fully illustrated 62-card deck is based on my New York Times best-selling book. Use this deck daily as a spiritual guide to expanding your miracle mindset. When in doubt, put your hand on the deck and say, “Thank you, divine guidance. I need a Miracle Now. Show me what you’ve got!” Trust the guidance you receive and let it inform your next right action.
My hope and my intention for creating this card deck is to set you off on a lifelong journey of miracles. As you begin to live with a miracle mindset, you’ll be called to spread the love. The greatest way to gain serenity and happiness is through the service of others.
Your energy has far more power than you can even imagine. There is energy in your spoken words, in your emails and in your physical presence. When we function from a fearful, low-level energetic state, our thoughts and energy can literally pollute the world. But when we function from a place of positive energy, the world around us becomes more positive. The truth is that fear cannot coexist with love. Therefore, we must learn how to dissolve all boundaries with love by taking responsibility for our own energy. In doing so, we’ll raise the energy around us. Let’s make this commitment today and start creating Miracles Now.
