Today’s Miracle Moment is about the miraculous power of trust.
Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a place of complete surrender, a place where you profoundly trust that you’re being taken care of by a Universal power at every moment? To live with certainty that the Universe is really out to support you…That it’s on your side and has your back…
We know that that seems like a big stretch to believe 24/7/365…but let’s lean into it just for the moment.
We often try so hard to control everything in our lives that we forget the power of putting our faith in the universe, and in letting go. But once you get into the habit of doing all that you can from your humanness, and trusting when you get that intuitive message “it’s time to let go and surrender to a Higher Power” and you you actually do it, you’ll begin experiencing a deep sense of peace and of well-being.
Throughout history, the wisest men and women have known that their highest good came from surrender.
Not the kind of surrender as in losing a battle surrender, but as in letting go of their personal limitations and aligning totally with an intelligence and an energy that’s greater than themselves. The energy of: “Let Thy Will Be Done.”
If you can do this, it creates something that we call a “yes mind.”
Now what’s a “yes mind?” Basically, instead of saying no and resisting everything that’s happening, simply say “yes.”
I (Marci) had my first experience of a “yes mind” when I took an improvisational acting class many many years ago, and they had this practice that at first was really hard for me…
One of the rules of improv is to respond instantly and enthusiastically with a yes to whatever another actor throws at you. So during my first class, my improv partner told me that I was an elderly rock star. Instead of saying, “No no no, I can’t do that,” I immediately started playing the part. I started strumming an air guitar, and clutching my lower back, and belting out lyrics as I gyrated like a ninety five-year old. When suddenly the scene switched. And I was an alien coming to earth to rob a bank, I just had to go with it.
This exercise broke my boundaries and freed up my energy, and I found that it was a great practice for living life. When you say yes, it’s like being a trapeze artist – you’re able to let go of the trapeze you’re holding on to, and sail through the air towards the next one. Without letting go and trusting the next one is there, forward motion just isn’t impossible. So it’s surrender and trust that creates a feeling of flow in every moment.
Now, we acknowledge that sometimes things happen that are not the way we want them, like we let go a bit before the hands of the other trapeze artist are there to catch us, but we also know that there’s an intelligence in the universe that’s bigger than us…an intelligence that can see things in ways that we can’t…an intelligence that just wants you to hear it when it’s telling you, “Don’t worry, I’ve got this one.”
Here’s an exercise that we invite you to try.
It’s an exercise of acting from from saying yes to what the universe brings you and being led by your soul surrendering throughout the day. This is an exercise that was adapted from A Course in Miracles, and here’s what you do…
At the beginning of your day, close your eyes for just a moment, and take a few deep breaths, and offer these three questions to the Universe: What would spirit have me do today? Where would spirit have me go today? What would spirit have me say and to whom? And then, as you move through your day, use the answers that come to you as your inspiration from spirit, and simply say yes to whatever those answers are, trusting life’s unfolding. And if you get stuck, ask the questions again.
When you act on the intuitive answers that show up and follow them trusting that spirit is guiding you and has your back, you’ll find yourself living more and more in the miracle zone.
Debra and I wish you many moments of trusting, surrendering, and living in in the Miracle Zone until we’re together again.
Thank you ! I’m going through a challenging time with employment and your message really helps!
Thank you so much
Thank you. This helps as I go through several major losses in my life!
We so agree. This is always a work in progress and we have to remind each other to trust in the Universe all the time.
Me too! Bless you!
Blessings to you too, Barb. =)
We follow our guidance on the messages we share and so glad this one spoke to you, Dylan. We love hearing from you and look forward to continuing to see you in our community.

How do you tell someone who has suffered a traumatic loss that the universe is benevolent? For example, how would you propose that someone who had a loved killed in the Pittsburgh or Kentucky attacks say yes to that??
Hello, Davvid. That is always so hard. We find in times of trauma, listening first is the greatest gift and then sharing words of comfort about trust without being attached to how that person receives or reacts to it is a good way to go. Let us know if that helps.
Honestly speaking after reading your article I felt differently!
My greatest challenge: I am humble by nature and as a result (many of those who seems to be friends to me) turn to take advantage of my meekness hurt me. I lost my job in 2011 but that does not stress me because God has blessed me with loving and caring wife.
I am inspired by your article and indeed I now believe that I quote: ” The winds of grace always blowing, but you have to raise your sail.”
So you see I am so grateful to the Universe and people like, thanks hey!!
I hav lost my eork since 2015. And facing financial problem . I am trying your suggestions and hopefully get the results. Thank you
Grateful for you being here, Bina. Trust is not always easy but we find it always leads to something wonderful.
You are a gift to the world, Jospeh! Thank you for sharing who you are with us. We are so grateful.
Thank you, Marci and Debra. I am dealing with 2 houses that got destroyed by mold/chemicals and gave my husband and I MCS and Mast Cell Activation. One house just went on the market and has had great press as it is a lovely stone Victorian, but the other one has new problems and we are still in a hotel and both dealing with these health issues. I am trying to TRUST and Let Go and Let God and count our many blessings. Bless you both for your inspiration today.
Glad our message inspired you, Gail. Sorry to hear about your health and your situation. Hard to trust when life takes such unexpected turns! Keep us updated on how you and your husband are doing.
I tried your system, but nothing as yet. But i trust in the lord to see me through difficult period in my life at this time. Thank you very much my friend, God guidance always.
Blessings to you, Alvin. Sending you love and joy.
I do not ask those questions, but Ido look for answers that I cannot find myself. Recently, after taking a year off of “being there” I decided it was time to get out and start a new life. I am 89, in good health and ready for the next step. Been looking for part time work, could not find anything right for me, when i heard “volunteer” Not in MY thinking, but decided maybe that is what is next. Right after that I read where volunteers were needed in my area. Got in touch, and now am working with them helping the disabled. This is getting me back into the swing of life, and also giving me a social life, as some of it is fun, dinner/play, dinner/dance etc also. I do not even have to pay for those. I a doing a weekly Creative Corner, will do a ceramics class, etc. so I am learning how to help a group of people I had no relationship to. Everytime the universe intervenes in my life, it is to help a goup somewhere that I would never have considered. Wrote an ebook about some of this several years ago.
Thank you for making the time to watch, read and comment, Joyce!
Wow, Jane! That’s definitely what we call living in the Miracle Zone! Thank you for sharing your story. Beautiful and inspiring.
Bless you both for sharing!
I love your Miracle Moments. For 20 years I have worked as a healer and wrote a book about my experiences, hence I know the truth of what you teach.
May the love that shines through your eyes, both of you, Marci and Debra, be returned to you a thousand fold.
From a rainy, Autumnal England, I send smiles and gratitude.
We’re feeling your love, Naomi! Much love and light to you right back to you.
Thanks so much for your words of encouragement sir, God bless you , how does this thing works without any support from your end sir, pls help me practically , l am jobless l have nothing with me , pls just tell me what to do , l need your support sir God bless you.
Hello, Alo. Surrendering to trust is a wonderful place to start. Listen to the stillness inside you and trust where you are guided to go.
Thanks so much! I’ve been depressed and kinda stuck.
I hope doing what you’ve suggested will help.
Let us know if this works for you, Darlene. And remember, we get to start anew each and every day.
I read a post which said” GOD is in Perfect and Complete Control, another saying is trouble don’t last always and change do come, weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning. So we hold our heads up, we squeeze God hand until we feel God squeezing back, which is our sign of reassurance that God has not left nor forsaken Us, is closer to us than our hands, is the breath we breathe, the spirit that dwells in us…..
That’s beautiful, Fhoenis. Thank you for sharing such inspiring words. God is indeed the breath we breathe…
As soon as I wake up I say: I feel good, I am happy, I am fulfilled. That sets my mind to accept what the day may bring.
Yes! That’s a surefire way to get in the Miracle Zone!
