No need for 'miracles', just show a way for me (one) to prove to oneself that a thought / willing is generated by one's own subjective consciousness with clear independence from antecedent vents and circumstances. I can't think of any way to do that. Call it a miracle if you like. But if you can't do that how can you defend free will or immaterial mind?

Of course your philosophy denies the possibility of jamest as a free will agent. The only agency that could pertain there is in the supposed creative OneMind which is self-blind and divorces creative agency from experience. So you have no possibility of meeting the challenge and holding to your idealism. Your conscious thoughts are not your own creations
