The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles.  ——William Penn

This morning when I woke up and checked my email there was a gentle blessing waiting for me. This was sent to me by a friend. As I watched the video, I felt immensely grateful and happy. It made me feel charged to move along my entire day. And since I have committed to writing on my blog daily, I immediately knew that “Blessing’ would be my topic for the day.

Let’s explore a few meanings of this magical word,”Blessing”. Here are some of them that I found which I would like to share, they are as follows:

Blessing means to wish unconditionally from the deepest chambers of our heart infinite goodness for others.

Blessing also means to acknowledge the omnipresent, universal beauty hidden from material eyes.

Blessing is the gift of connection.

Blessing is a thought focused on the divine oneness of all people, animals,nature, creation.

Blessing is an intentional moment taken out in time to be aware of unison to create a symbol in art word, prayer or thought , representing that unison with another.

Blessing is to offer another the opening or opportunity to experience Oneness.

Blessing is unconditional , often a random act of kindness inspired by an impulse from within.

Blessing can be an artwork, blessing poem or simply a thought , a silent moment of reverence, a phone call spoken with intention to bless, seeing what is usually unseen, taking a moment out of time to focus on divine connection with another being.

Blessing is simply flowing love and appreciation to another. Any “magic” in a blessing comes purely from the love energy which is our Source, and which we call forth whenever we desire, love, or appreciate. A blessing from another may let us become more open to allowing our own connection to Source.When you’re in a place of connection and you flow love to someone, you bless them. A blessing is “a way of returning [someone] to love.”

According to Wikipedia, a blessing is the infusion of something with holiness, divine will, or one’s hopes.

So let us all intend to become aware of the meanings of the word blessing as when something is offered with conscious awareness and intention then the intensity of that manifestation becomes amplified.

We can choose to practice blessing on a daily basis.I share an article that I came across on positive psychology:

As the day comes to a close, allow yourself to think about three things that happened during the day that you are most happy about, and why you believe they happened.

The simple elegance of this exercise is part of the appeal, and in some ways the stumbling block people may find difficulty overcoming. Could it really be that something so easy could have such profound results? The unequivocal answer is yes!

The outcome from doing this exercise is astonishing. Participants doing this exercise for one week increased happiness and decreased depressive symptoms for six months. This is not a misprint. One week of doing this had a lasting effect for six months. While newer research suggests that this technique may actually be more effective if done less frequently rather than more frequently, the basics of the technique have value, a very positive one. The information is pouring in from all corners of the globe, and it is becoming clear that positive psychology is free, easy, effective, and worth the try.

Personally I choose to acknowledge  three blessings in my life per day. I write these down and I am in deep gratitude for them. This helps me bring in the vibrational frequency of the source into my beingness on a daily basis. I also make a conscious choice to offer three blessings a day to the world. I choose to give back what I receive. This keeps the continnum flow of blessings to circle my life and the life of the planet that I live in.

As Charles Dickens says: “Reflect on your present blessings, on which every man has many, not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”

“Focussing on a solution brings about a resolution that leads to evolution.” I invite you to focus on Blessings as being the solution to all.

May all beings be blessed infinitely now and forever.

An Irish Blessing for you,

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May sun shine warm upon your face,
the rain fall soft upon your fields,
and until we meet again
may God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
