Miracle Impulses

I suspect that miracle impulses are not mere “urges” or “compulsions” to love, but rather I suspect they are actual “pulses” of an energetic expression, like a ball of light or a little spark of life force which a person transmits. And I think these pulses can be expressed/created by loving minds and transfer to others, causing instant healing.

I had one experience of this. My wife was very angry about something and yet, the night before I had been sending her a lot of love. So I was in a very open loving space. And as I looked at her and loved her, I felt a little pulse of concentrated energy shoot out of me and go into her. Instantaneously she went into laughter, the angry mood was immediately gone, and she said “don’t make me laugh!”. I hadn’t done anything but shine love and it seemed the “impulse” that shot out of me had a miraculous healing effect on her mind.

ACIM says:

”Miracles are a spark of life.”

”Miracles are energizers.”

”Miracles mean life and God is the giver of life.”

”Miracles are *expressions* of love.”

”Miracles are thought creations.”

”Miracles are thoughts.”

”The Holy Spirit is the mechanism of miracles.”

”Miracles arise from a miraculous state of mind.”

These to me suggest that “a miracle”, an impulse, is a kind of created ”spark of life”, like a ball of energy or life force, which is created by a loving mind and transfers to others. Upon receipt, this acts like a drop of detergent. As Jesus says it “breaks up erroneous thought”. This “miracle” pulse is like a droplet of healing.

”Miracles fall like drops of healing rain“ is, I think, NOT metaphoric. They are actual droplets of healing power. Drops of life, which supply the lack of life and thus produce resurrection and reversal of sickness and all symptoms of love’s absence.

As expressions of love, it is not enough to say a person is simply radiating love. Rather, that the love literally generates a force that “travels” in the “form” of a love spark, which induces instant healing upon receipt. The eyes of Christ give birth to them. They are many in number and unlimited in supply. They are a power surge.

I have only experienced this impulse once. One time that I was loving enough - really pushing the envelope. I imagine that these impulses just naturally erupt like extraneous sparks from a light-filled person. I could be wrong but I have no other explanation.

As ACIM says, miracles cause healing, they are not the healing itself. They are a remedy. Meaning they are applied to something to cause effects. They entail a GIVER and a RECEIVER, which means something goes out of you into another. They happen naturally when you are loving. You emit them, like little thought creations, little ideas of love and healing. They are transmitted and render a service to another upon receipt.
