Today’s Miracle Moment is about how to be resilient in uncertain times…
We’re living in some of the most uncertain times in our lifetime. We can look around the world and see how people are experiencing extreme difficulties, traumatic events and adversities. This is a time where it’s incredibly important to find your inner resilience.
Nature is an incredible example to us of how to be resilient. Nature has the ability to bounce back constantly and to create new life. We can see this in all of the seasons, in weather patterns, and in the cycle of life.
One great example of resilience in nature is the emperor penguins. You might have seen the documentary about them years ago, March of the Penguins.
Year after year, adult emperor penguins walk over 60 miles in the icy, cold conditions of the arctic to breed. The female lays one egg and rolls it towards the male penguin, who then has the job of keeping the egg warm for the next four months until the egg hatches. The female penguins then leave the colony, and go out searching for food, and the males fast for four months as they keep the egg warm. By the time the female returns, the male has lost nearly half their body mass.
Between the 60-mile trek in the drastic conditions of the Arctic and the four months of fasting, emperor penguins are facing extreme conditions, year after year, to keep their species going!
Even though it requires so much resilience for them to do so, the emperor penguins continue to make this trek. Why? Because their true nature calls them to do so.
Maybe we don’t have to lose half of our body weight or walk 60 miles in the Arctic to follow our true path, but we do have to face challenges and cultural pressures. We have to find a deeper reservoir of resilience within ourselves to keep moving toward our true path and our goals.
If we can find a sense of passion and purpose underneath our goals, we can tap into reservoirs of resilience.
With the male penguin, breeding is so important to the perpetuation of the species. What if, like the male penguin, there was a feeling inside of you that was so important to nurture and cultivate in the same way?
This could be a feeling of an open heart, joy, adventure, or curiosity. As long as you keep that feeling alive and nurture it like the penguin nurtures the egg, then everything that comes your way will be worth it.
Through connecting with the feeling state that’s most important to you to cultivate, you can find resilience and a strengthened ability to keep showing up to life.
You can also remember that there are infinite possibilities in each moment. If one door closes, there are an infinite number of options and possibilities available in this now. Continue to build your inner resilience that isn’t dependent on outside circumstances, and you will be able to create new possibilities and opportunities in your life.
“Like tiny seeds with potent power to push through tough ground and become mighty trees, we hold innate reserves of unimaginable strength. We are resilient.” – Catherine DeVrye
Well said and explained in simple words but deep thought . ! Thank you
I needed to hear that video which was great. I believe we should always have a goal even if we retired but some people think differently after they retired. Also thanks Marci and Sue with love.
I am retired from my job ! But not from life. I feel there is more to be accomplished. Thankyou
I love you girls so much you are such a joy and inspiration. I have been watching you for years! I am on my yoga mat and I am the most positive upbeat girl but like most of the world there is doubt and concern and I have never let this ruin my life so thank you for putting me back on the right track as I do my abundance pose that you taught me! ❤️❤️❤️
So great to see and hear you 2 beautiful ladies again.
I’m partner and carer for someone who has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He can be very unpredictable with his comments and behaviour. My resilience is when this happens I visualise a silver ladder and step up a rung or two heading toward the joy , peace and happiness
Yes yes yes ladies you are amazing very well explained thank you both much love to all..
Infinite possibilities, the feeling that each moment I show up I invest in my life. Thank you for this discussion
Great words of wisdom
Thank you for reminding me of the emperor penguins’ amazing life and for the Catherine DeVrye quote. Both remind me of the amazing inner strength that is available to me if I acknowledge it, attend to it, and move into it.
Thank you for what you do. It makes a difference.
If you have resilience you will always come back stronger from set backs, problems and challenges in your life! Genetically we all have an inbuilt resilience which we use in everyday life situations that can throw us off kilter, but we all know that in any set back or adversity you can cope if you apply the best control possible to rise to the challenges!!!
Very nice reminders
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
Robert Louis Stevenson
So needed this reminder today! “Passion and purpose to move through and to.” We have the innate reserves. Thank you!
Such a great message at this time.
On Monday October 25,2021 I took the Free Video Master Class on the 5 healer type because jesus want’s me to worl on that area. My soul want’s me to have arts so I trace some drawings. I guess that make’s me resilient.
Thank you for sharing your encouragement! By staying optimistic and embracing some positive, healthy approaches to healing, we can emerge from adversity stronger than ever. Little by little, every day… one step at a time! Don’t let the situation to define you, don’t bring baggage into your next step or chapter in life… Focus on daily positive affirmations with strong conviction that it is done! Giving thanks, and so it is!!!! 🙏🏼💖🙏🏼

Yoga with Sue restores the body deeply.WE are lucky to have this time.
Don Pet, M.D.: Tx for the miracle moment. One magical sentence could change everything: “What works for my tribe and your tribe for now and the future?” It eliminates blaming, shaming, or complaining. Us or them become “we.”. Right/wrong disappear. It simply asks that we synergize our creative energy to teach 4 essential HELP qualities: Happiness, Enough, Love, and Peace.
Marci and Sue, greetings. I’ve had a rough year this year and I am trying with everything within me to be resilient pushing back into life. My mother passed the Monday after Mother’s Day and my son passed the Monday after Father’s Day this year 2021, both suddenly and Covid related. I graduated with an associates degree in Funeral Service and mortuary science May 1. The graduation was a great accomplishment for me however I was knocked down with the death of the two people that I love the most. I have a daughter and five grandchildren. I am trying to get back in the groove of things however I’m just numb right now and going through counseling. Pray that I will continue to be resilient as I move through this journey of my life with the strength of God to lead and guide me. I really enjoyed this segment and thank you for the drops of nugget that you both provided very uplifting and comforting.
Over the course of more than six years I have faced some difficult challenges in my life, and I have learned that resilience, seen as a state and as a path, is one of the most powerful tools. I also wrote a book talking about my experience and it was very liberating.
Great video! I love these! The feelings I need most right now are Calmness and Security…..
I am nurturing and cultivating calmness in my life……♥️♥️♥️
Tks, Marci and Dr. Sue!!!:)
Resilience is a King, I say these …unique times we live in!!!I believe, the PHD of life made most of us resilient, me included…All the challenges we went thru and that are put in front of us(now incl.) are to strengthen us! If we just look at life that way- we’ll realize how strong we are! And be more empowered!:)
