A Course In Miracles: 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.

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!
