I never really knew what a miracle was.

I was interviewing my friend Gabrielle Bernstein for the Hay House New Year New You Summit and she kept talking about prayer and miracles, like she tends to do.

Now, I’m a spiritual gal. I always have been. But I kept getting stuck on the world miracle.

Up until that moment my idea of a miracle was Jesus walking on water or someone suddenly being able to run after years of being bound to a wheel chair. I could sense by the way Gabby was talking that this wasn’t necessarily the kind of grandiose miracle she was referring to.

So I asked her: “Gab, when you say miracle, what exactly do you mean?”

Her reply was fabulously simple: “A shift in perception.”

Oh! That’s a miracle?! Well geez. I have those all the time. And those are WAY more available to all of us than the over the top anomalies I had imagined.

Gabby’s definition of a miracle is downright freeing. Just a few weeks ago I was sitting at a conference listening to a speaker who I’d seen before who I hadn’t particularly resonated with. But something shifted as I sat and listened because I opened my heart and mind to him. Suddenly, I couldn’t take enough notes and a few hours flew by like it had been a few minutes. I left the lecture feeling more inspired and more clarity than I can remember feeling in a long time. It was a miracle.

This week Gabby’s new book, Miracles Now: 108 Life-Changing Tools for Less Stress, More Flow, and Finding Your True Purpose is out.

I’ve been using the book like a divination tool. When I’m feeling a little stuck or I’m looking for a shift in perception, I open it up and I read whatever message is on the page. I trust that it is exactly the right message I need to create a miracle in that moment.

The book is chock full of simple practices to help you ramp up your abundance, too. Gabby shared one with me called “Pray Before You Pay”  in the video below. An abundance practice/tool of mine is also featured in the book. It’s practice #53 and it’s called “Value Yourself And The World Will Value You.”

Check out the 2 minute video of Gabby and me below for a quick wisdom nugget that will help you feel less stressed out about your money right away.
