The Blessing Way

The potential for delivering blessings is everywhere. This practice is easy when we’re happy, but not so easy when we are not. If we are not blessing most likely we are cursing.

Even when the situations in our lives create discomfort and pain we can still ask, “What are the blessings I still have in my life?” Remember that in true generosity there is a return that comes to us. It’s when we give more than we think we have to spare that a door opens for more blessings to come in.

Blessing Principle
Money, time, energy, possessions. When we give away our blessings, they are not gone. They may become something more or something else. When we give all that we have something comes to fill that empty place.

The Blessing Way. “I am wishing and knowing good things for you today.” This statement arises from compassion.  It leads us into grace.

We cannot bless another until we fill ourselves so we have something to share – this could be grace, joy, abundance, or almost anything. We move our consciousness to the place where we know gratitude. The authenticity of our knowing amounts to the power of our blessing. Otherwise it is just a wish or a fantasy.

Try this practice for a little each day. Write a word that describes your gratitude/blessing energy, on a  post-it-note. Place it where you will always see it, know it. Maybe you will write GRATITUDE – or any word that describes how you are blessed. Be with that energy. Pay special attention to how you feel. Know it then send it to another. Of course there will be days we call a bad day- on those days especially- it is important to-

  1. Remember possibilities
  2. Find your blessings
  3. Feel them strongly and share them enthusiastically


Practice the Blessing Way
Remember to bless and be bold. Maybe your Unkind inner voices say mean things. Bless your unkind voices…say “Bless you” like when someone sneezes. Do what you can. Blessings everywhere you go. Give away in kindness. See what you can do today.  I think you will enjoy it.
