We can’t create miracles, but we can create the conditions to invite them into our lives this year. The biggest thing that each of us can do to create a better world is for each of us to live a better, happier life. Marci Schimoff talks about her Year of Miracles program and how you can learn to become open to receiving more miracles in your life, how to focus your energy and attention on love and gratitude, and why the path to peace is finding happiness that doesn’t depend on your circumstances.

  • [0:30] 2021 was a year of challenge and growth for many people, Marci included. Pivoting into her opportunities has been a real blessing.
  • [2:20] The past year has also introduced a lot of additional stress into people’s lives. Having a supportive community around you can be crucial to growth and wellbeing, and can help you avoid becoming depressed and isolated.
  • [5:10] We can’t do everything alone. We are social creatures and we get energy from connection with other people. Marci helps organize groups of women to connect with each other which has created miraculous changes in their lives.
  • [7:30] A miracle is a surprise and welcomed event that can’t be explained by science and often attributed to divine grace. We can’t create miracles, but we can create the conditions for miracles to show up in our lives.
  • [9:00] The first step to formulate for miracles is to remove the blocks that we have that prevent miracles from flowing into our lives. Miracles are everywhere, we just aren’t necessarily open to them. One of the biggest blocks is not feeling worthy of them. We unconsciously block good from coming our way because we feel unworthy of it.
  • [10:15] Somebody can only give you something to the degree you are open to receiving it. The same is true with the universe.
  • [10:30] Ask yourself the following five questions to assess how well you receive in your life: Do you do a good job taking in compliments? Do you receive gifts easily? Are you able to ask people for help? Do you share in your wins and successes, or do you downplay everything? Do you feel okay receiving if it comes easily, or does it feel like cheating if you don’t struggle or work hard?
  • [15:05] Notice the ways you are unconsciously pushing away the good in your life. The more you can practice this, the more open to receiving you will become and more miracles will show up in your life. Focus on the energy of love and gratitude instead of brushing it off.
  • [17:00] What we put our attention on grows, so choose where you put your energy and attention and focus on what makes you feel good. The better you feel, the more you will attract like energy.
  • [17:50] Most people set New Year’s resolutions, but only 8% of people realize their intentions by the end of the year. The difference is in setting soul-based intentions rather than ego-based intentions. When you set a resolution, notice whether you feel expanded or contracted.
  • [21:30] Marci tells the stories of a few of the people that have gone through the Year of Miracles program.
  • [23:45] Marci has everyone set an overarching theme for the year. This year Marci’s theme is to trust in the flow and the universe. People who are happiest believe that the universe is on their side and fundamentally benevolent. Look for ways to find joy in the moment, even when things are tough.
  • [26:45] We are all works in progress and it comes down to habits. If you can look at negative things and see what could be better instead of how bad things are, you are on the right path.
  • [27:50] The five foundations of the Year of Miracles program spell USHER: Universe, Soul, Heart, Energy, Responsibility.
