A Miracle with 8% Interest

by Rev. Dan Strodl, O.M.C.

What is a miracle? A miracle is a shift in perception from fear to love. Instead of seeing the world through fear, anxiety, stress, judgments and grievances, we see through the eyes of love, peace and happiness. While miracles are a healing of our mind, they can manifest in our outer world ... as healing of an illness, money issues, relationship struggles etc.

To choose a miracle is to invite Holy Spirit to guide us. To hold a grievance is to forget who we are. When Holy Spirit replaces a grievance with a miracle, we re-awakened to the truth of who we truly are. The result is happiness. The opportunity for everyday miracles is there for all of us, we just need willingness and mind training. True forgiveness (letting go of judgments) is the key to bringing miracles into our lives. As we notice our upsets, grievances, judgments, and hand them over to the Holy Spirit, they dissolve into nothingness, and in their place comes peace. When practiced regularly it becomes a habit, and in time our world shifts from anxiety to peace, from judgments to acceptance, from fear to happiness.

I have been practicing this for many years, and my world has changed beyond recognition. I rarely get trapped by fear, and if I do I quickly hand it over to the Holy Spirit for healing. I feel a happiness and joy that has nothing to do with what’s going on outside. I am so grateful for the gifts of God. So many things of the world that had to be a certain way have disappeared, like needing to be right, worrying about what others think of me, getting my way, and on and on. 

But there was one area I struggled to let go of ... money. Money has always been an idol. I was trained in the ego thought system to believe that money was necessary for happiness. And although intellectually I knew this wasn’t true, I couldn’t let it go.

Then last year I got snagged by a big internet scam. Online thieves wrangled their way into my bank and stole £11,000. I went to my bank and told them what happened. They listened intently to the story and concluded that I allowed them into my account and there was nothing they could do, it was my fault. End of story. I was devastated. I was trapped in fear of lack.

So I did the only thing I knew, I saw it as a forgiveness opportunity and took it to the Holy Spirit. I asked “How would you have me see this?” What I received was “All is well. You will always have enough”. That helped me to calm down for a short period, but the fear returned. So I kept handing it over to Spirit … and kept receiving reassurance that all is well. I decided not to talk about it to anyone because that was giving energy to the story and feeding the fear. In time I was able to let it go and I returned to peace.

“What could you not accept, if you but knew that everything that happens, all events, past, present and to come, are gently planned by One Whose only purpose is your good?” (W-pI.135.18.1)

I realised I had experienced a miracle. I had let go of the money that was stolen ... it meant nothing to me. The miracle showed me that happiness and peace have nothing to do with money, possessions, cars, holidays, or stuff. I am so grateful for this. I felt such a wonderful sense of freedom from the money prison I had been trapped in all my life.

“The world that seems to hold you prisoner can be escaped by anyone who does not hold it dear. Withdraw all value you have placed upon its meagre offerings and senseless gifts, and let the gift of God replace them all.” (W-pI.127.3)

Then last week I received an email from my bank. They had decided to give me the money back, with 8% interest.

A miracle with 8% interest!!
