Miracles Made Easy –

The Four Types of Miracles and How To Create them in

Your Life

By Joan Hangarter, D.C., M.S.

DR JOAN’S STORY: Dr. Joan is currently a radio talk show host, and author of

The Miracle Makers Club – Live Your Prosperous and Soul-Filled … …

[So you need a miracle. But what exactly is a miracle and how do you attract

them into your life? Each of you has a different idea of what a miracle is. For

some, it is an unexplainable act that no human could possibly accomplish alone.

Or maybe you simply define a miracle as,” something that can never happen to

me.” The word miracle has been applied to saints, intuition, magic, hope, a helping

hand, finding a parking space, winning the lottery, getting an education, and

even receiving your mail. In its basic definition, a miracle is something that is

simply amazing.

I have broken it down to four basic types of miracles.

Miracle A: Mini Miracle There are four types of miracles. You probably

experience the first type frequently, without realizing it. This is the

mini-miracle or the baby step miracle. These are daily events, such as

finding a parking space right in front of Costco on Christmas Eve, for

example. In another case, maybe you think about whom you need to speak with

and they call — out of the blue. Last week I was wandering down the bread aisle

at the supermarket, wondering when my son Anton’s basketball game was and I

ran into another mom on the team who knew the answer right then.

Author Jean Shonoda Bolen says, “Synchronicity can pave the way for people

coming together. By unraveling the circumstances through which two people

meet to enter a significant relationship, the delicate, unseen hand of fate, destiny,

synchronicity or underlying Tao can be discerned.” Simply put, she’s referring to

this type of miracle.

Perhaps you find the right book at the right time, as says mythologist

William Irwin Thompson, “A university can provide you with a library, but what

makes the book you are not looking for fall off the shelf and into your hands?”

When I was destitute, my miracles were simple, such as finding spare

change hidden in my pockets when I had just run out of money for food. A miracle

was getting a ride to and from school for my kids during the rainy season

when we did not own umbrellas, raincoats or hats. I walked two to three miles a

day in the chilly San Francisco rain. My close friend Lalo couldn’t bear to see me

so beaten down, and he bought me a beat up, salvaged 1981 Volvo that spit

fumes. The car became my Golden Red Chariot– my miracle car. It didn’t matter

that the roof leaked and the car had no heat. It ran. We had transportation!

Thanksgiving and Christmas were celebrated, when we miraculously received

gifts of turkey and trimmings. A neighbor knocked on my door with a made up

story about winning an extra turkey at work. Right. A mother from the school

handed me a gift certificate for a ready-made dinner, complete with stuffing. Believe

me, you could never convince me that miracles don’t exist, because I experienced

them even during the bleakest of moments.

What constitutes a miracle to one person may go unnoticed by another. A few

cents for food and a beat up Volvo might be a curse to an affluent family, but to

me, they were blessings in disguise. At the time, a simple turkey meant the world

to me. So everyone will have a slightly different definition of what a miracle

means to them personally..

It is easy to overlook or discount the little events as they occur. That’s

why I call everything that is positive that comes my way a miracle. I

never leave anything out, because I want a steady stream of wonderfully nice

things happening to me 24/7.

Miracle B: The “Lucky” Miracle The second type of miracle is what some consider

luck, good fortune or sheer

coincidence. For instance, you may say that Sam Walton was lucky to have succeeded

in creating Wal-Mart and Sam’s. I mean, several others had tried to do it

and failed. It must have been luck or fate or an accident that he did it where others

did not.

To become lucky, in the real sense, is to become purposeful, mindful,

intuitive, listening to your answers and going with your own sense of

rhythm towards a destination. I classify it as a miracle, because as you

create this aura of winning, sometimes it appears as though the good luck occurs

at just the right time. It might feel like divine intervention that saved your life. Was

that luck or a miracle? Did God do it or did you?

Individuals who are consistently lucky are manifesting outwardly a

disciplined and focused approach on the inside. They are usually following a

quest, a voice, an intuitive gut feeling, and they are focused on seeing it through.

They have created the mindset, the brew, and the soil for their miracle. Remember,

the universe will send you precisely what you ask for.

Two days ago, I stood behind a handsome younger man outside the bathroomon

a Southwest Commuter Flight. Just that morning I had expressed a need to find

raw foods. Three hours later I meet a man who runs a company that imports raw

foods from third world countries and markets them to major

natural food stores. Synchronicity of events occurs all the time, when you say to

our friends, ‘I was just thinking of you, and here you are at

Safeway at the exact precise moment I am.’

That we survived is a major miracle indeed. 2001 was the bleakest year in my

entire life. The kids and I decided to not celebrate Christmas. We had no stomach

for additional disappointments. My attorney asked me how I coped with losing

everything and being reduced to food stamps and poverty.

I had to tell him. I wrote him a letter. The letter became a three page

double spaced 1000 word article. With a tremendous sense of freedom, I emailed

the piece to six newspapers, three in California, and three in New York

City, my birthplace.

Imagine my surprise when I returned home to a voicemail from David Burgin, editor

of the San Francisco Examiner. He informed me my writing was excellent,

boosting my ego a thousand fold and actually published the piece on the front

page on December 19, 2001. The response was truly miraculous. Fifty people

responded with letters of encouragement and donations of food, presents, slippers,

bathrobes, groceries and cash. We suddenly felt rich beyond belief.

These acts of kindness were not coincidence. It wasn’t just accidental,

and it certainly wasn’t random. These were the miracles I was creating, without

even realizing it. I now know these principles work if applied with 100 percent intention

and commitment. Anything less than 100 percent will not succeed. The

exercises in my latest book, The Miracle Makers Club – Live the Prosperous and

Soul Filled Life that You Deserve Today, show you how to activate your miracles

and make your own dreams come true.

One of my radio show guests calls himself Dr. Luck. Randall Fitzgerald has devoted

a lifetime to researching the qualities that lucky people have in common.

He says, in his book, Lucky You, “If we recognize and appreciate the appearance

of serendipity and synchronicity in our lives we seem to enhance our chances of

being blessed with good fortune,” he writes. “To some extent, there seems to be

a law of attraction at work here – the more we notice something, the more we attract

it into our lives.” He believes that if you accept “the miraculous” you will

have “the blessings of good fortune.” In other words, luck is an attitude.

This is important because winners who consistently win, tell us that they get into

a flow during which everything comes to them. Success isn’t just by accident;

lucky people create it from their mindset of prosperity. You have heard the saying,

‘success breeds success.’ Spend time with positive, prosperous friends and

you will walk away feeling naturally good.

Miracle C: Life Changing, Transformational Miracle

The third type of miracle is the life changing, transformational miracles

that have lead you to completely change your focus and life direction.

Accidents, illnesses, divorce, job losses force you to reconsider your

options. This transformational miracle is an unwelcome friend pushing you along

to discover your true life’s purpose.

This miracle, born from crisis, is a potent force for change. My

commitment to transform my life obsessed me. I learned that harnessing my life’s

purpose would activate my miracles and create the life I dreamed about. This

was easier said than done. I had allowed myself to fall into disarray. I lived in fear

24 hours a day. Since I was desperate and knew there had to be a better way, I

committed myself to making necessary changes. There was no choice. Hard

work was required. It was not enough to intellectually know what needed to be

done. I had to change myself. Other people have had similar miracles. Like Mike

McGauley who lost the use of both his legs when his car was struck by a drunk

driver. His doctors insisted on amputating his legs, but he refused. He was

determined to walk. Mike now claims “the accident that almost killed me turned

out to save my life.” Twelve years later he ran his first triathlon and has

gone on to become a professional speaker, coach, and founder of the Dream


Last summer I heard Wesla Whitfield, a renowned jazz singer perform at a fundraiser

sponsoring horse training for disable children. I was surprised when she

rolled onto the stage in her wheelchair. An automobile accident when she was

younger had paralyzed her legs. She didn’t let that stop her. Her performance

was passionate, riveting, and held me spell bound. At the end of the show, another

woman in a wheelchair rolled in and handed Welsa a bouquet of flowers

and brought the audience to tears. When she had been in the hospital, having

also had a severe accident paralyzing her, Wesla had spent hours at her side

encouraging her to go on. Her story, while miraculous and fascinating, is not entirely

unique. Simple people do amazing things everyday. Erik Weihenmayer was

born with retinoscheses, a degenerative eye disorder that left him blind at 13.

Erik was determined to rise above his disabilities. In his book, “Touch The Top of

The World,” he shares his struggles to stretch beyond his boundaries to overcome

the restrictions placed upon him. His dream was to climb the world’s biggest

peaks, an extraordinary achievement for those even with sight. Erik has now

climbed the tallest peaks in the world, and my last e-mail from him indicated he

was going back with a group of blind climbers.

My mother experienced a miracle as well. She lived with me for the last eight

months of her life, and her lung cancer spread rapidly. One weekend, I brought

mom to the emergency room. Her oncologist advised me to call my family to her

side, because her death was near. I called my friend Dr. Awender, an old school

chiropractor. Dr. Awender adjusted one bone in mom’s neck and told her that he

had turned on her body’s healing power. My husband and I went for Sunday

brunch, down the street to the Santa Fe Bar and Grill close to my Berkeley practice.

When we returned to the hospital, my mother was sitting up in bed, demanding

to be released.

And this wasn’t her only miracle. One day she told me she almost died. “I went

through a rather immense glowing tunnel towards a blinding light. There were

magnificent radiant beings on both sides who asked me if I was ready to come

home. I told them no, because I still needed to reconcile with my sister, Pearl,

and my daughter, Hildy.” According to my mother, her body became as light as a

feather. The pain disappeared, and she experienced an extraordinary sense of

love and well-being. She was granted permission to return in order to mend her

relationships before she passed on. Mom finally died when she was ready to go.

She held my hand in my home while we listened to her favorite music.

Like these fascinating examples, your obstacles and challenges can become the

fuel for your life transformational miracles. Step away from your problems, and

reconsider them from the higher perspective. What life lessons are you learning

from this? What do your challenges represent? What is the message in this challenge

for you to overcome? This becomes the fertilizer to grow your miracle.

Grab hold of the opportunity to make change before life forces it on you.

Miracle D: Unexplainable Events

I call the last type, miracles of the fifth dimensional kind. They are the result of

extraordinary, unexplainable events that normal science and rational explanations

cannot answer. Some of these miracles are sanctioned by the church. The

Vatican requires candidates for sainthood to have performed documented miracles,

at least two of them. For example, both Jesus and Muhammed fed masses

of people with only a small amount of food.

Even in the Jewish collection of laws, there are descriptions of miracles in the

Talmud. An old Jewish proverb says: “He who does not believe in miracles is not

a realist.” These books discuss the miracles that we can control and create. They

are designed for people who want to learn how to harness and create their miracles.

You must want your transformation so badly you experience pain in the pit

of your belly.

I will show you how to develop your life purpose and create your own miracle

team. My vision is to bring together others who share your determination and

commitment to success. The energy from the group consciousness enhances

your power and raises your vibration to the point where you will catch your miracle

wave. Together, we will mix the miracle brew and activate the nutrients to get

it going. What could be simpler? Join our team of Miracle Makers. We will be

your miracle buddies and cheer you on to success as you overcome obstacles

and habits that sabotage your progress and formulate action plans to achieve

your greatest dreams.

Don’t be surprised if you awaken in the mornings ready to leap from a deep

sleep, filled with passion and excitement. Finally, you are living the life you

yearned for, the one you prayed that you could create and have. If you only had

that miracle you’ve dreamed about. What major and minor miracles have happened

to you already? Try to think of a time when you experienced a Mini Miracle.

Have you experienced coincidences that seem too good to be true or a front

parking spot that just appeared What life changing miracles have happened to

you? What other random miracles have you experienced? If you could make just

one miracle happen in your life, what would it be? Now that you’re in the mood

for making miracles, it’s time you learn how to do it. You can create major life

transformations in just four steps. The first step, essential to creating a healthy

lifestyle, is that you must have a strong desire to change. You must be ready to

confront your life, assess your life and take responsibility for it. Are you ready to

get started?
