What is a Blessing?

Every time a child smiles at you, it is a blessing.  Every time a child takes your hand, they are extending to you their blessing.  Blessings are all over the place, and we don’t always see them.  When you are out shopping do you smile at people?  Do you say thank you?  Every time you extend a heartfelt gesture of any kind towards anyone, you are extending your blessing.  Blessings can only come from the heart.  Kind gestures that are void and empty of feeling are not blessings, they are only gestures.  Are you open to receiving all the blessings that come your way?  Or do you close them off from your heart, and refuse to actually feel them?

Source energy, which is really what love is, downloads into us and emanates from our hearts.  When we connect to this Source energy by feeling it (and it can only feel loving) we can then extend our blessings to the world.  Get in touch with your heart.  Put your hand on your heart.  Think of something, anything, that you are grateful for.  It might be simple things like a warm bed to sleep in, or a good meal to eat.  But feel the gratitude for it in your body.  Get into that warm fuzzy feeling.  Only from this feeling can you extend blessings.  From this space, go out into your world and allow this Source energy to shine forth from you to everyone you meet.  It is really easy to do.  We just forget to do it!  A little nod, with the right feeling, really effects the person you direct it to.  It can’t not affect them.

Do you have a pet?  Ever notice how when you feel warm fuzzy feelings they want to be beside you?  Many cats love to be right beside their owners when they are meditating, because the love the peaceful feelings that are beaming out from their owner.   If you are really angry you do not even have to say a word.  Just the feeling will cause your dog to want to sit across the room for you, or even leave the room.  Do you believe in this energy of Source?  It is real, and even more real than anything else in your world.  In fact it is all that there is really.

Do you want to accept blessings?  Do you want to extend them?  Why bother?  Simply put, your feelings, the actual feelings in your body, affect everybody and everything around you.  Do you want to help others?  Feeling love when you are with someone is the greatest blessing you can give them.  It’s really why we came here. 

Many Blessings,
