I have seen miracles happen to thousands of people around the world. Miracles will happen to you also when you discover the Healing Power that is within and you have the willingness to listen in quiet and identify your own personal blocks and obstacles – the barriers and patterns in your thinking that block the light (fear, worry, doubt, anxiety, people-pleasing, comparing, complaining to name a few) and then do something about them.
I teach A Course in Miracles. My life was completely transformed when I began to live the ideas in A Course in Miracles and so I created a free online program called the 40-Day Program where I invite people to LOOK at their thoughts, feelings, beliefs and the words they use (in their mind privately and when talking with others) and to make a commitment to live in a new way. Miracles occur when you do this. I have seen thousands of people have eye-opening realizations within the first few days of beginning the 40-Day just from this one little instruction to pay attention.
I call it “Watch yourself like a hawk”
This past Sunday afternoon I came across a bible quote from Jesus from 2000 years ago. He said this to his disciples:
“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” -Jesus (Matthew 18:19)
Normally we think of sentences like “if two of you shall agree” and “where two or three are gathered” as talking about people.
But what if it’s not two people that Jesus is talking about, but the “two” is two thoughts in your own mind.
Now it makes perfect sense. I have “agreed” many times in Jesus’ name with another person about something and nothing happened at all. I have gathered in groups in “two or three” and Jesus is there in the midst and still nothing spectacular occurred. So what the heck?
He’s not talking about people. He’s talking about thoughts. If two of your thoughts should agree on anything they ask, it would be done.
Let’s look at this and see what actually goes on in your mind. The two thoughts are fighting constantly. Especially if you are a spiritual person with a lot of spiritual “knowledge” and concepts. There is a war within and it’s non-stop.
Let’s look at a few examples:
You have an idea to start eating healthier and almost instantly there is another thought that resists it. If you are a spiritual person the thought might be “I’m not a body. I need do nothing.”
Boom. There is fighting and resistance. It’s so subtle that we often don’t see it.
“I really want to ___________” (fill in the blank). “But I can’t because I have no money.”
Two thoughts in disagreement. Nothing happens.
I should go outside because it’s so nice out and fresh air would feel great to move. I’m too tired.
Two in disagreement.
This is amazing, right?
I don’t feel like doing this. But I have to or I’ll get fired and won’t be able to pay my bills.
I want to eat this. I can’t because it’s not good for me.”
I know that healing is possible because in God all things are possible. It will never happen for me.
I want to dance on a stage. I can’t because I’m too old and that’s just dumb anyways.
I’ll give you a personal example from my life. For months (years?) I think “I going to write a blog post” and “I’m going to get my website Lisa Natoli back up and running again” and “I’m going to write on a weekly regular basis”. And every time I have these thoughts (which is daily, truth to be told) there are 10 other things that need to get done first. I post on Facebook, because that’s easier and requires less effort.
Today I thought about this idea of the two thoughts in agreement and I said: that’s it. I’m getting the “two or more” thoughts into agreement and the thing I’m asking for, it shall be done.
And voila! Here is a blog post, completed. I hope you enjoy it. I have loved writing it. Is it a miracle? Not really. I just made the two thoughts stop fighting with other (finally!) and suddenly I felt super focused and inspired.
If you pay close attention, you will notice there is always a fight within. You have one thought that makes you feel excited and inspired and within seconds there is a crowd of other thoughts talking you out of it.
The second (and third and fourth) thought creeps in quietly as doubt, fear, anxiety, worry, rationalization, being logical, sticking to the facts.
“But if two of you were to agree on earth as touching anything that they ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in Heaven.”
Do you see this? It’s exciting. He’s talking about the thoughts – getting the conscious thought in agreement with the subconscious thought.
All Power is in your hands now.
Your job is to get the two thoughts to agree and stop the war within. Stop the internal battle.
Do this and you’ll be living a miraculous life.
The only reason miracles do not seem to occur for the mass majority of people is because of opposition from the two thoughts fighting each other.
If you look at Jesus, there was no opposition whatsoever. Zero. There was not a doubt in his mind. His thoughts “two or three” were all in harmony with each other. There was only the truth there with no thought opposing. This is how he healed the sick, raised the dead and multiplied the fishes and loaves of bread.
I invite you to experiment with this idea in your life.
Think of something you really want – it could involve a healing, it could be something material that you want to own or experience, it could be something you want to create. It can be anything at all. The sky is the limit.
Now watch the other thoughts that come up. Be utterly amazed by this fight! It’s there all the time. The only difference now is that you are aware of it, so now you can do something about it.
When you have a thought (for example to do something) and you get every other thought into alignment with it, you will be utterly amazed by how fast the picture of your life changes.
So an example would be that you want to do something that is currently out of your financial range. It costs more money than you have in your bank account. It costs more money than you will ever make at your job or that comes in through retirement. But you are experimenting now with this idea of “two or more gathered in my name in agreement” and so instead of listening to the excuses that come in, you find a thought that really makes you know that you’re doing it. There is no stopping you. You don’t know how it will be done, but you will figure it out. You can feel yourself doing the thing you want to do. There is no doubt. You’re doing it!
And then you watch when the doubt thoughts creep in (because they will) and now you are thrilled and excited because these are just old thoughts from old patterning and past conditioning that have no power to stop you. They are just thoughts!
They are blocks and obstacles to you seeing miracles in your life.
The first thought is often coming from your Christ Mind (the Mind of God) and this thought shows up in the form of intuition, an idea, a flash of insight, something exciting or fun to do, a voice you hear in your mind, a prompt, a vision. It often seems to come from out of nowhere.
Then comes “the voice of reason” that reminds you of all the reasons it can’t be done. You’re too old. Too sick. No money. There’s no time. It’s already been done. Don’t bother.
Miracles do not occur between the “two” are not in agreement, so nothing happens.
But when you KNOW that whatever the voice is telling you CAN be done, then it is done for you of our Father which is in Heaven.
Try it. Know something with absolute certainty and watch how fast it appears in your life.
A Course in Miracles is a mind-training program to emerge from fear and get rid of doubt. When doubt is gone, you will be doing greater works than Jesus did because he’s gone to the Father and so he’s here helping us.
When the two are in agreement, it is done for you by our Father.
Have fun with this idea. Wipe out fear and doubt and experience wealth, health, joy and freedom.
What miracles will you accomplish today?
I would love for you to experiment with this idea and then come back here leave a comment to share your miracle story.
All my love,
