“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.” —Buddha
Day 1 Miraculous Journey
Miracles happen every day, and not just in remote villages or holy sites across the globe, but right here, in our own lives. If our minds are preoccupied or we’re too busy or rushed, we may not notice the miracles coming into our life, yet they are always there,like gifts waiting to be opened. Over the course of this meditation challenge,we will learn how to live each day connected to the peace of present-moment awareness. In this expanded state of awareness, we will be able to tune into the presence of miracles and see with the eyes of love.
Our centering thought for today is:
“Today I am open to the presence of miracles.”
Our Sanskrit mantra for today is:
Om is known as the centering sound. Repeating “Om” honors our connection to the universe.
Set one intention for your journey toward miraculous relationships. As if carefully cultivating aseed to sprout, take time each day to remember and connect with this special intention. Visualize it as a precious jewel resting in your heart. Gently shower it with love and light and, with your mind’s eye, watch it open and expand. As you travel through these next 21 days, give yourself permission to open your mind, and your heart, to all possibilities. Embrace the vision of your true self in supportive, meaningful relationships of all kinds.

Today starts my 21-Day Challenge.
I hope to share with you a little of my experiences, and hopefully you will be inspired to sign-up.
The next 3 weeks is all about the fusion of heart and spirit and connecting with the miracles they are forever trying to acheive. We will be learning to be aware and mindful of the everyday miracles that surround us, which include the many relationships we could and already have.
Today’s meditation was actually very moving, literally.
Every so often gooseflesh and adrenaline filled my body. I became very aware of my posture, my breath, the movements inside of me.
Outside, cars honked, birds churped, and roommates took showers. But my focus was still held, and even though my mind did wonder, I was able to let those things fade away and returned back to Om.
Today, I will definitely be more aware of the presence of miracles.
