A mantra is defined by Wikipedia as “a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of “creating transformation.” Before I share the Miracle Worker Mantra, you should understand what a “Miracle Worker” is and what they do in the real world.
When I refer to “miracles,” I do not mean a religious or supernatural kind of event. Walking on water and healing the sick will remain sacred Miracles that demonstrate Divine Intervention. Wonderfully inspiring, faith producing Miracles are best left to those capable of creating such majestic events.
For me, a “miracle” is much more mundane and personal. In the context of this article, it simply means a shift or change in perspective. Nothing magical or other worldly, just an alteration in your thoughts about a past event or person that opens your heart to love.
Think of it as a gift to yourself. The gift remains inside the box, wrapped in paper of your own choosing. When you respond with anger or resentment, the wrapping paper is dark and dense. When you react with acceptance and love, the paper becomes transparent and it is much easier for you to be aware of the gift, glowing eternally and waiting to be remembered.
Just what is the “gift”? It is the one immutable truth that remains real throughout the Ages. It is true for all people born in flesh. It remains part of your DNA and it can never be lost, stolen or changed, no matter how much you have messed up or how much pain you have caused someone else.
Think of the gift as your Divine Nature Aligned (DNA). You could no more change the molecular structure of your DNA than you could alter the gift. Both come from the same source and both are immutable, unalterable and real. Accept that fact and your perspective will shift from fear to love. The gift is simply stated and easily remembered:
You were created in love by God.
The logic is simple. If you were created in love by God, then so was everyone else. Every person who has ever walked the planet has DNA as part of their physical body. No one can change their own DNA (Divine Nature Aligned) and they certainly cannot change another person’s DNA. Therefore, the person you are so angry with or fearful of has the same Divine Nature that you do. They just don’t remember it. A Miracle Worker does remember it, in every situation.
A Miracle Worker sees beyond the surface of things and remains open to the possibility that she cannot know, really know, the motivation or reasons that prompt a person to behave badly. A Miracle Worker allows the other person to misbehave, without reacting or criticizing. She understands that forgiveness in the moment is the best response and the least likely to enrage or engage the other person.
This technique may sound difficult until you begin using the Miracle Worker Mantra. Simple to remember, easy to employ, when you train yourself to think of the mantra in any uncomfortable situation, you will begin to think like a Miracle Worker.
The mantra does not give away your power, nor does it demand recompense for a perceived wrong. Instead, the Miracle Worker Mantra reminds you that you always have a choice about how you react to any situation. It does not matter how awful the other person is to you; it is your choice on how you respond – with anger (which only increases the potential volatility) or with love (which expands both participants).
Without further ado, here is mantra: when you are faced with a situation that causes your heart to race, or your breathing to become short and shallow, tell yourself the following:
“I can see this differently.”
The mantra works best when it is said with love and openness. Step out of the situation for a brief moment, take a deep breath and gently remind yourself that you have a choice in how you react or behave. Assure yourself that you are loved and in loving yourself, you love the other person. In that frame of mind, you then step back into the scene and “see this differently.”
The marvelous part of this entire process is that when you become a Miracle Worker, your life is forever changed. Instead of frustration or anger, you feel only peace and love. From that standpoint you react differently, which sends out ripples of change to those you encounter. They respond differently to your shifted response, and the cycle of love continues.
Come to think of it, maybe my mundane definition of miracles should include transformation after all!
