I am a Miracle Choice Facilitator and Trainer and what has thrilled me most in facilitating this game is to realize that when people are faced with their choices they realize that they can always choose again!
This is liberating. If we can, in a moment of anger or annoyance, stop and think about it, we will realize that choosing again is easier than we imagine. We have the power to do this at all times. The power to choose new attitudes, new thoughts, new words to say, new people to share our lives, a new life to live.
It’s so beautiful to realize that this playful and simple game can allow us to begin to get in touch with this incredible ability to live in the present and make new choices.
The game also encourages us to celebrate miracles. Often when we think of miracles, we associate them with religion, but this game (and A Course in Miracles which inspired the game) has nothing to do with religion. The miracle is a change of perception. It helps us perceive the world in a different way, to return and understand who we are and get in touch with what Is. This wisdom is in us, because we are united with the unique mind that created us. This perception opens new fields, new thoughts and new events begin to emerge in our lives.
To experience the power of choice, stop and watch your thinking. What is thinking? Is it bad? Is it good? Whatever it is, it’s just a thought and you can choose another.
Observe your behavior in a business meeting or even in a conversation with a close friend. What do you say? Is it connected to your heart? If it isn’t then stop and feel. You can choose again.
Look at the situations that are upsetting you, such as heavy traffic on your way home. What is your reaction? Are you angry? Complaining about the car in front of you? Become aware of your emotion state and choose again.
Always, in any situation, it is possible to experience the incredible power of choice. And with that simple choice, we change the world we are creating.
This power is available to you in the present moment. It is here and now that you choose a new perception, a new way to thinking, a different feeling. Then you will change what you do next, and so you are able to greatly transform your life.

I’m working with translators on both the Dutch and Spanish translations of the Miracle Choice Pocket Game. I need to give attention to details and communication. What I notice is that, I can take time to connect to all the help that is available to me on all levels, or just get on with the work “by myself”. Claudia reminds us in her blog post that there is ease and grace in one choice compared to another. When I look back at an email I sent to one translator that resulted in confusion and mistakes, I realise now I wasn’t connected or centred when I sent it. It’s not about getting the job done efficiently, but the relationships both inner and outer that happen during the work.
Much love James for the Miracle Choice Team.
