According to the Oxford Dictionary – A Miracle is….
An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.
Everyday we hear people referring to miracles. People being healed at Lourdes, historical stories from the bible about Jesus healing the blind and resurrecting the dead. But do miracles actually happen? Or are they simply coincidence?
In Buddhism we believe everything has a root cause, in order for it to exist. For example; nothing whether material, phenomena or living, can happen independently of other factors. So looking at miracles from this viewpoint, just because the occurrence isn’t explicable at this moment through natural or scientific law, doesn’t mean it’s a miracle and there’s no logical explanation discoverable through further research. If miracles do exist on the other hand, why don’t they exist in the form of everyone having enough to eat, or being given clean disease free water? Just a thought.
so…. What’s your take on Miracles? Can the dead be raised or the power of prayer heal all sickness?
As we enter day 8 of our amazing journey of 17 Days IN COLOUR, we enter the mystical world of the colour WHITE.
White is the perfect colour for absolute balance and harmony. It is the color of the awakened Spirit; the light of perfection; the light of the Cosmic Consciousness,the Divine Light. We often speak about protecting ourselves with a veil of white light, or surrounding others with white light. This is because the colour White symbolises purity, raising the consciousness in all of us.
If we or others are sick, directing white into to a part of the body that needs healing is one of the fastest ways to bring about restoration of health. The magickal benefits of White: Purification and cleaning on all levels, contact with higher self and spiritual helpers, (inner) peace, aura-healing, truth seeking, consecration, spiritual enlightenment, protection against negativity by raising your vibration, breaking curses, exorcism, meditation, divination, inspiration, clairvoyance, invoking spirits White can be a replacement for any other color your magick requires. If white is your favourite colour, you are most definitely the person to come to in a crisis but you’re probably less likely to see out help. You are so in tune with nature, you have a beautiful way of recharging your own batteries in a spiritual way.
People who prefer the colour white, also have the wonderful quality of childlike playfulness and innocence but at the same time need to be cautious of being taken for granted. People who prefer the colour white, tend to be quite happy living in their own little healing space. The crown chakra is most commonly represented with the color white, although it can also be depicted as deep purple. The auric color of crown chakra energy can also be seen as gold, white, or clear light.
