Looking for Miracles
By Ann Bolinger-
In his book 'MIRACLES' C.S Lewis suggests that miracles do not break the laws of nature, they are the law of nature.
Have you ever been driving in traffic and sensed that the driver next to you was going to change lanes, just before they did in fact change lanes? Or answered the telephone and heard the voice of the person you were just thinking about? These personal oracles are everyday miracles of intuition that often go unnoticed as they illuminate the interconnections that link everything in our universe. These interconnections exist within the quantum field of our universe.
My desk dictionary defines a miracle as an extraordinary or unusual event that is considered to be a manifestation of divine or supernatural powers, something that excites admiration, awe, or wonder.
As we explore the miracles of personal oracles we begin to experience the supernatural as natural.
Some evenings Lynn and her young daughters add their own unique twist to the routine reading of bedtime stories. Lynn, Ellie and Hannah go looking for miracles. One selects a book. Another opens the book to a random page. And then as Lynn reads from that particular page they all wait in eager anticipation for a miracle: a message with timely and significant meaning for any one of them. If you haven’t tried it you may be amazed. Chances are you will discover the miracle of your own personal oracle message hiding in plain sight in any book you choose from the dictionary to the Bible and almost every book in between.
I wasn’t looking for a miracle the day the London sidewalk heart caught my attention. My husband Kenneth and I were heading off from our favorite hotel toward the train station when something on the sidewalk drew my attention to it like a magnet. As rain evaporated from the surrounding sidewalk the elements of nature combined to form a perfectly defined heart. I interpreted it as a symbol of the love that was in the air following the marriage a few days earlier of our nephew Stephen and his bride Louise.
Over the years the London sidewalk heart has served as a personal oracle to many different people. For one client who was going through a difficult time, it served as a symbol of strength and support. She placed the image in a frame and set it on her bedside table. She gazed at it each night before she went to sleep and imagined herself as the image in the center, a strong woman with her arms outstretched accepting the universal love that surrounds and supports us all.

An ancient Hasidic saying suggests: “When you walk across the fields with your mind pure and holy then from all the stones and all growing things, and all animals the sparks of their soul come out and cling to you and they become a holy fire in you.”
In fact, no matter where we are or what we are doing, when our hearts are open and
we are totally present in the moment a dimension of our world opens to us. We tune-
