5. What is a “Mystery”?  And what is a “Miss-Story”?



According to the dictionary, a mystery is:

  • Anything that is kept secret or remains unexplained or unknown
  • Any truth that is unknowable except by divine revelation

According to the Thesaurus, the synonyms for “mystery” include:

  • conundrum
  • enigma
  • puzzle
  • riddle
  • secret

And why do I prefer the alternative spelling “Miss-Story” or “Miss-Stories”?

Language describes reality and language has been mostly man-made for the last few thousand years so, whenever I can, I make up new words that reveal the presence of the Divine Feminine.

The Feminine is typically mysterious, in touch with the worlds within and knows things intuitively without physical evidence. Have you ever caught yourself saying:  “I don’t know how I know that.  I just know that!”?

Furthermore, “Miss-Stories” sounds like my book title “The Miss-Adventures of an Irreverent Reverend” and there will certainly be stories in this blog from my life that have a mysterious, mystical and even miss-tickle element.

Definition of  “miss-tickle”

In the Word according to Rev. Steph, “miss-tickle” means

  • humorous
  • mystical and
  • authored by a woman.

Goddess knows, maybe “Miss-Stories” will be a book title of its own someday…?

Looking forward to going deeper into the meanings of these words and how they apply to our lives in terms of the changes we want to order up from the Universe.

4. What is a miracle?

Miracles, Miss-Stories and Metaphysical Musings

“The miracles of Earth are the laws of Heaven.”  Johann Paul Richter

What is a miracle?

Firstly, I will give you the traditional definitions.

According to the dictionary, a miracle is:

  • An extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.
  • An event considered as a work of God.

According to the Thesaurus, synonyms for “miracle” include:

  • marvel
  • phenomenon
  • wonder

Origin of the word “miracle”

Middle English: via Old French from Latin miraculum ‘object of wonder’, from mirari ‘to wonder’, from mirus ‘wonderful’.

From this word root, we get our current words “mirror”, “admire” and “mirage”.

My understanding of a miracle

For me, a miracle has nothing to do with a supernatural cause or an external divine agency.  That traditional definition indicates separatist thinking i.e. God is outside me and can cause things to happen in my life which I have no part in.  In the Science of Mind, we teach that God is Who and What I AM. I AM an emanation of God, a hologram of the Divine.

Therefore, according to my metaphysical understanding, a miracle is the earthly manifestation of an internal shift in consciousness.  When you and I change our minds and shift our attention in a heavenly direction, all things become possible and miracles abound.

3. My Spiritual “Big Five”

Miracles,  Miss-Stories and Metaphysical Musings

“The miracles of Earth are the laws of Heaven” Johann Paul Richter 

My Spiritual “Big Five”

One night I had a revelation….

I had been wracking my brains about how to do this blog and write about all the things that inspire and delight me in a way that would be inspiring and helpful to you.

I was getting completely stalled by my old addiction to perfection and afraid to start, in case I made a mistake and lost you. (The fact that we had not even found each other at this point is completely irrelevant!)

Without realising it, I asked for help from Upstairs and suddenly, miraculously, I got my answer:

This entire blog is about revealing the Presence of Heaven on Earth and it is the broad umbrella under which all the modes of expression and service that I love are included.

So, my spiritual “Big Five” are:

  1. Writing and Speaking
  2. Travelling and leading Pilgrimages
  3. Law of Attraction Coaching
  4. Teaching Metaphysics
  5. Facilitating Sacred Ceremonies

And I have experienced miracles in all of these areas which I look forward to sharing with you in upcoming blog posts.

2. The Power of a Miracle Blog

Miracles, Miss-Stories and Metaphysical Musings

“The miracles of Earth are the laws of Heaven.”Johann Paul Richter, novelist

The Power of a Miracle Blog

In the words of Jesus the Christ: “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” (Ref.: John 12:32.)

To me this means, the higher I go spiritually, the more everybody benefits because there is only One Mind.

So if you and I are connected in consciousness because you are open and willing to receiving new ideas and insights that expand your life, then you automatically get the blessing of the upliftment when I shift.

It works the other way too:  if you shift, I receive the blessing of a faster, finer frequency of energy from your consciousness.  So growth and movement happen automatically in a vertical sense in terms of upliftment.

But consider this too:   as I now open myself up to consciously sharing the miracles and insights that I experience, using the written word in the form of this blog, the message of hope, upliftment and the divine awareness of this magical miraculous universe we live in, can be spread further abroad – in other words, Life is expanding horizontally too.

What is so inspiring and exciting for me is that in the very act of me writing, and then you reading, these words, already more of that elevated consciousness of Heaven is breaking through into our human experience.  We are becoming transformed right now!  That is the miracle of Oneness and the spiritual connection which transcends time and space.

I trust and know that this blog will touch people in various ways as and when they are ready to receive.   There are no accidents in this universe and there is no time in the Spirit, so someone might read this blog 100 years from now on earth and it will be exactly when they are ready for it.

So I offer these blog posts to you, beloved Reader.  May they find you at the perfect time in your evolutionary journey. May they uplift your life and cause untold blessings and miracles throughout all eternity.

1. Introduction

Miracles, Miss-Stories and Metaphysical Musings

“The miracles of Earth are the laws of Heaven” Johann Paul Richter,  novelist



I have been longing to write this blog forever.  Miracles, Miss-Stories and Metaphysical Musings occur just about every day of my life and it is my greatest joy to have this online forum for sharing them with the world.

Purpose of this blog

My purpose is to raise our collective awareness about the Invisible Power and Intelligence, which is orchestrating our lives behind the scenes for the highest good of each of us and the Whole Universe.

Rev. Steph – late-blooming blogger

My name is Stephanie Clarke, affectionately known as “Rev. Steph”  to my friends, students and congregants. This is a divine hangover from the days when I was a (hyper)-active metaphysical minister.

Starting a successful spiritual community was a miracle of note. It is the crux of my autobiography: The Miss-Adventures of an Irreverent Reverend: a spirited guide for rebels and renegades.

However, there have been many more miracles, both before and since I founded Soul Home. These are what I intend to share with you in this blog as well as some funny Miss-Stories (arguably Miss-Demeanours) and my Metaphysical Musings.

The stories you will read here are about how the laws of Heaven are revealed on Earth in the form of miracles.
