5 Ways to Live With a Sense of the Miraculous in Everyday Life

Joseph Campbell said in his book, The Power of Myth, “We have forgotten the age-old fact that God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. It’s as simple as that.”

For many people, the idea of the miraculous is something that happens outside of their everyday lives. They see it as reserved for special occasions or lucky breaks. But what if we could learn to see the miraculous in our daily lives?

Campbell believed living with a sense of the miraculous in everyday life was possible. He thought that we are all connected to something larger than ourselves and that by tapping into this connection, we can access a sense of wonder and awe.

Looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

Albert Einstein

A sense of the miraculous can be found by looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary. It is a state of mind that allows us to see the beauty and wonder in everyday moments. 

This sense of awe and reverence can be cultivated by paying attention to the simple things in life and being open to new experiences. By enabling a sense of the miraculous, we can bring more joy and meaning into our lives.

We can find a sense of the miraculous in some very ordinary things, such as:

  • Working with our hands
  • Playing with children or pets
  • Talking with friends or a loved one
  • Walking through the woods or along the beach
  • Listening to music

Why bother living with a sense of the miraculous? (The benefits of a magical mindset)

“You can hope for a miracle in your life, or you realize that your life is the miracle.”

Robert Breault

When you live with a sense of the miraculous, you see the world differently. Everything becomes more magical, and you start noticing the little things that make life special. Here are three benefits of living with a sense of the miraculous:

You appreciate life more.

When you have a sense of the miraculous, you realize that every moment is precious. You savor the good moments and learn from the bad ones. You also become more grateful for everything you have in life.

You attract positive energy.

People are drawn to your positive energy when you live with a sense of wonder and joy. This can create opportunities for new relationships and experiences. Additionally, positivity attracts more positivity, which means you’ll start to see even more miracles in your life.

You live in the present moment.

When you appreciate the present moment, you’re able to see the beauty in small things. This helps you avoid worrying about what happened in the past or what may happen in the future.

You explore your spirituality more deeply.

5 ways to bring more magic into your life

In our fast-paced, modern lives, it’s easy to forget that magic exists. We get caught up in the mundane everyday life, and we can forget to look for the extraordinary. If you’re yearning for a bit more magic in your life, here are five ways to bring it back:

1. Spend time in nature.

There’s something about being surrounded by trees, flowers, and fresh air that can help us feel connected to something larger than ourselves. Take a nature walk, go camping, or simply sit outside and soak up a little Vitamin D. 

2. Be open to new experiences. 

We, too often, get stuck in our comfort zones because we’re afraid of the unknown. But if we never step outside of our comfort zones, we’ll never know what amazing things life has to offer.

3. Meditate.

We tend to feel anxious and stressed when our minds race from one thought to another. Meditation helps us regain control of our thoughts and clear our minds, making us more grounded as we face life’s challenges.

4. Surround yourself with positive people. 

Always try to surround yourself with positive people who inspire and uplift you

It’s easy to be happy when you’re around positive, upbeat, and inspiring people. Take the time to invest in friendships with others who see the world as a beautiful place and enjoy life’s experiences.

5. Embrace your imperfections. 

Practice unconditional self-acceptance and stop comparing yourself to others. It’s easy to feel happy when we accept ourselves for who we are and stop trying to be someone we’re not.

Conclusion: Embrace the miraculous in everyday life

The miraculous is all around us if we only take the time to look. It’s in the sunrise and the sunset, in a mother’s love for her child, and in the bonds of friendship. It’s in a kind word from a stranger and in the smile of a baby.

When we take the time to notice the miraculous in everyday life, it helps us to appreciate all the good that surrounds us. It also reminds us that we are never alone, no matter the challenges we face. We can always find strength and hope in the miraculous moments that happen every day.
