Welcome Miracles in 2009

We’ve all had the experience. You think how much you love someone and want to connect. The phone rings. You hear your loved one’s voice and smile with delight.

How does it work? What gets in the way when it does not work?

I’ve rummaged around with those questions for over 30 years with lots of bright, curious, open minded, generous spirited people.

Here is some of what we learned.

The bad news is that you are not in charge of the whole universe, your vote about how things should go is not the only one that counts. If you think about it though, it’s not really bad news. How would you like it if someone else could determine the outcome in your life?

Desire is the rocket fuel of manifestation. It propels thoughts, action and creativity. I’m pretty sure it works in a cosmic way too, pushing and pulling things around in ways we are just beginning to grasp.

Happy desire brings happiness. Unhappy desire brings unhappiness.

Desire comes from the Latin desiderare, to await from the stars.

It works like an inner compass – an awareness of what we want to move toward or attract to us.

Self-defeating beliefs get in the way. They block amazing experiences. Call them miracles, blessings, whatever you want; we deflect and reject them every day. Because these experiences seem like miracles to us, they do not, by definition, fit into our limiting belief-systems about what we can be, what we can have and what we deserve. We rule them out like a foul-happy umpire in the game of life.

When we uncover those beliefs and reveal them as the misperceptions that they are, we can accept the wonders all around us. You may want to read (or re-read!) “Emotional Options” and “Travelling Free” to help you to do that. You can order them at”

On the first day of each New Year, I gather with a small group of friends to become more aware of “What I Welcome Into My Life.”

We’ll reflect on the miracles and wonders we’d like to show up in 2009, write them down and share the ones we want to divulge. I’ll share some of mine here.

There is power in shared consciousness. Letting people know what you would like to connect with improves the chances that it will happen, especially if lots of us celebrate and support each other’s heart’s desire.

I hope you’ll welcome miracles and blessings in 2009.

One desire leaps to mind right now: for each of you to be happier than ever before, more prosperous, healthier, more filled with love and receiving it back from all around you.

Please share this with anyone you’d like to extend a welcome to.

Happy New Year!


  1. Hi there, my name is Viviana. I am a chilean girl who is new at this whole way of thinking and living and it's almost unbelievable how many changes I've already seen in just a few days... Thank you so much to all the people who is sharing this information and changing lives... Best wishes to all of you and happy 2009!!

  2. Here's a good example of not seeing the miracles:

    As my kids have grown, they, as part of growing and becoming independent, do not spend as much time with me. The other day I found myself thinking that if they loved me back as much as I loved them, then they would certainly be around more. Well, as you can expect, my mood spiraled down until I stopped myself and then started thinking about the reason I loved them, and explored some beliefs about "getting something back" for the love.

    Well, I discovered that I was missing the miracle of having the opportunity to love and bring into the world two wonderful people. It was the gift of being able to love that I was missing, not the payback. Love, in its purest form, without strings attached or tally sheets, if you will, is the gift. I no longer feel shorted, but blessed to have had the opportunity to truly love.

    Never stop working through your beliefs - you may miss all the wonderful parts of life you already have and will have.

    Thank you Mandy. It is because of your books and blogs that I was able to work through my beliefs quickly, instead of stewing on it for days. Thank you, thank you! You have made quite a difference in my life.


  3. Recently, several financial blows laid me low. Some of the people around me were very negative, at a time when I was particularly vulnerable. However, summoning my deep conviction in the Miracle of Source Energy available to us all, I persisted in seeking a new way of living. A long-time colleague offered me a job. I love it. There's an opportunity to make "real" money in future, too, not just a wage. Then, I looked for an apartment. The affordable ones were depressingly dirty and even unsafe. I looked higher, and found one I really like. I explained to the manager a bit of my situation, and she decided to offer me an apartment at a reduced rent "because you would be a perfect fit for our place", and to spread the deposit over several months. Well, I was elated, but I still didn't have quite enough money to swing it. Yesterday, I received a message that a huge check had been mailed to me, and it's more than enough to get me moved in. This is my miracle. I am renewed in my faith that all I need is right here. I now allow abundance to flow to me and through me. Happy New Year and Love and Abundance to All!

  4. Hello Mandy, hello fellow travellers,
