Celebrate the Miracle – YOU!



Life is full of ups and downs, joys and sorrows. It is but natural for us to feel happy when things are bright and cheerful and sad when things look bleak. It is also true that when we are happy the world smiles with us and when we are sad, we cry alone. So, how do we lift ourselves out of doom and despair? Be BRAVE …

(B) Be Our Own Cheer leader

The first thing we need to do is to be our own cheerleader. We can’t expect others to cheer and encourage us all the time. So let us do it for ourselves. We owe it to us. Keep smiling. Forget the past. Don’t worry about the future. Forget about personalizing things and issues. Filter criticism. Look at the world with a sense of wonder. Be genuine and authentic.

(R) Read something Positive & Uplifting

Research has always proved the impact of reading something uplifting. It helps one to be cheerful and happy. Books like The Alchemist and The Secret actually burst with optimism. "When you really want something to happen, the whole universe conspires so that your wish comes true." These words echo throughout the novel The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho. So what is it we want to welcome into our life? Whatever we want is possible, provided we pursue our dreams, work towards it and inspire ourselves.

(A) Affirm, Affirm, Affirm!!!

When we cultivate a positive mindset and supplement them with affirmations, the positive vibes tend to naturally attract not only positive people but also positive situations. Affirmations help in creating a positive thinking pattern and mindset in us. The 19th century self-help author Émile Coué has contributed the famous affirmation "Every day in every way, I am getting better and better." Use positive affirmations. Write them, believe in and repeat them. Set apart a specific time for them.

(V) Visualize, meditate

Creative visualization is the art of seeking to alter our outer world through changing one’s thoughts and to realize one’s goals.  A book of the same name by Shakti Gawain contains meditations and exercises that are aimed at helping the practitioner channel energies in good directions, strengthen self-esteem, improve overall health, and experience deep relaxation. According to her, creative visualization is such an innately powerful process that even five minutes of conscious, positive meditation can balance out hours, days, even years of negative patterns.

(E) Enthuse

The word enthusiasm is from the Greek entheos and means God in us. Enthusiasm is contagious and creative. It infuses passion into whatever we are doing. It turns a ho-hum life into a rip-roaring adventure. It fuels life and success and is most powerful. If  we embrace it it is ours. And who does not like being a midst enthusiastic people? How can we enthuse? By being grateful, proactive, responsible, evolving, and by having fun.

“Daring enthusiasm and abiding cheerfulness
Can accomplish everything on earth
Without fail.” ~ Sri Chinmoy ~

To be BRAVE in this way, we need to realize our self worth, our uniqueness. Let each one of us celebrate the miracle that is us! This transcript from a  wonderful CD titled Love Now,   by Kute Blackson, the transformational  life coach, captures this exclusivity in a matchless way.(www.kuteblackson.com)

"When you were first conceived, you were a double strand of DNA in a fertilized ovum. Dividing 50 times, and you had over 100 trillion cells. More than all the stars in the Milky Way. Then, you were born into existence.

Each of your cells do over six trillion things per second. Just think how a human body knows how to kill germs, digest, make babies, and talk, all at the same time.

The miracle is you.
The miracle is you.
Your heart beats 101,000 times per day.
During your life it will beat 300 million times.
Each day you take 23,000 breaths.
Your blood travels 60,000 miles each day on its journey through the body.
25 million cells are being produced in your body each second.
You blink at least 15,000 times per day.
Your brain has about 100 billion nerve cells.
If all your DNA was stretched out it would reach the moon 6000 times.
You shed 600,000 particles of skin every hour.
Your bones are four times stronger than concrete.
Your eyes can distinguish up to one million colour surfaces, and take in more information than the largest telescope in the world.
Your lungs inhale over two million litres of air daily.
When you touch anything, a message is sent to your brain at 124 mph.
Your skin consists of 280,000 heat receptors.
The length of your blood vessels would circle the globe 2½ times.
You have the ability to distinguish up to 10,000 different smells.
Your tongue has over 10,000 taste buds.

The miracle is you.
The miracle is you.

Listen to the music.
Listen to the music.
Deep inside.

Listen to the music.
Listen to the music.
Deep inside.

There are universes dancing inside your body.
There are sunsets shining in your heart.
There are symphonies playing in your toes.
Rivers of blood effortlessly flows.
There is a full moon beaming in your belly button.
There is a cool breeze blowing in your lungs.
There is a gentle rain that falls from your eyes.
There is an army of love in every step.
There is love making in your every motion.

A body of devotion.

The miracle is you.
The miracle is you.

So realize.
It’s all inside.

A galaxy of amazement.

Should you ever forget.
Just close your eyes.

Listen to the music.
Listen to the music.
Deep inside.

Listen to the music.
Listen to the music.
Deep inside.

The miracle is you.
The miracle is you."

Aren’t you a Miracle? :-)))
