Oh milagros milagros come into my life...

So how can we bring milagros into our life?  What I love to do is cut a pice of card stock into small postcards or ATC cards.  I keep a stack and when I need a miracle I draw it out.  Let us say for instance you need direction in your life.  Think about what symbols represent direction to you? Go to a dream dictionary and look up directional dream sysmbols. Do any resonate? Now draw, collage, or color the picture or symbol for direction on the card. Then you can hang it up, post it on, or put it under your pillow.  Look at it whenever you need a reminder, then hang it back up or put it back under your pillow. The amazing thing is....Is when they materialize...try it out for yourself. See some other postcards at

What are Milagros?

Milagros are small charms often made from pot metal to signify miracles, healings, luck, and love that have been recieved by the person praying for them. They are small x-votos or offereings made to the saints and God for miracles granted.  There are stomach milagros for stomach ailments, healings, heart milagros for healing the heart both physically and emotionally, hand milagros for creativity, and for physical ailments....there is a mialgros for everyhting.
There are also milagros craftsman and woman who make these small charms, from embossed metal to the small cast pot metal charms.  You can see how to make the embossed metal milagros in my book to be released March 2011, "Inspiritu; Jewelry for the Mind Body and Soul"in the section on Milagros.  But for now ....sketch out the wish dream or miracle that you are hoping for and I will discuss what to do with it in the next post.   For now...dream, sketch, or collage your dreams, wishes, healings wished for.....
