How to Create Miracles

Creating miracles

What are you asking the universe for?

Are you asking to thrive or are you asking to survive?

Are you asking life for pennies or for millions?

Life will give you what you ask for and in his book "Think and Grow Rich" Napolean Hill quotes the following poem by Jessie B. Rittehouse:

“I bargained with Life for a penny

And Life would pay no more

However I begged at evening

When I counted my scanty store.

For Life is a just employer

He gives you what you ask

But once you have set the wages

Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial hire

Only to learn, dismayed

That any wage I had asked of Life

Life would have willingly paid.”


Life will always give you what you ask for so start asking life for bigger things


We draft our budgets and then we ask for just enough to just get by and are always shocked when we get just that.

There's a difference between thriving and just surviving.

If you bargain with life to survive, that's what you will get.

So if you want rent money: you ask for money to pay for rent for this month but what about the other 11 months in a year?


The best way to be open to miracles is to see how abundant the universe is


Life can only give you what you ask for and your subconscious mind can only find the solution to a problem you present it with.

We always assume that something is too big for the universe but I remember learning in a course in miracles that no miracle is too big or too small, they're all the same.

The solution you seek has to be bigger than the problem you’re facing.

Ask yourself: what will it take for me to get the whole year’s rent right now?

Ask yourself this question every day.

Write it on post it notes and post it all over your house - on the fridge and the wall and look at it every day. Wait for your inner wisdom to give you the answer and trust that answer.
