In the first half, author and expert on the paranormal, Rosemary Ellen Guiley, talked about miracles and the conditions in which they occur, as well as how to develop 'miracle mind consciousness.' People are tired of being buffeted by circumstances beyond their control, but we can affect positive change in our lives by educating ourselves about miracles, she argued. Miracles aren't "things that happen every now and then, at the grace of God-- divine power is very much part of it, but we are participants in this ability, and we can do a lot on our end to change forces in motion," she continued.
When we send an intention of our emotion, or heart's desire out into the cosmos and ask for a response from the divine-- that's a key part of the manifestation of miracles, she explained. The combination of intense emotion, focused thought, and being able to project that in alignment with cosmic forces-- that's when miracles occur, she added. Miracles are defined differently by people, but are often thought of as something to marvel at, or an occurrence that is beyond natural explanation. Sometimes miracles are generated in a crisis, or as a kind of divine rescue, she reported.
The Bible has many examples of miracles, such as accounts of Jesus' healing people and walking on water. "His message was that you can do this too, if you have the right faith...but for reasons that we may never understand...it didn't take hold in the mass consciousness," Guiley noted. A miracle mind set is aided by a daily practice of meditation or prayer, she advised, as well as contemplation of what one would like to accomplish, and a conscious awareness of thoughts that go through one's head so that negative thinking can be turned around.
In the latter half, the inventor of the VegeBurger, Greg Sams, spoke about his new book The State is Out of Date, which critiques government as a self-sustaining power that seeks to keep itself running, through increasing controls on the populace. Government focuses on corporations, and pays more attention to lobbyists than it does to its citizens, he asserted. Sams also touched on his notion as the Sun as a living conscious being, and that we are made from recycled stardust, and powered by starlight – that we are children of the stars.
