How to Invite Blessings into your  Life

 

A blessing in today’s terms can be perceived as a gift, just at the right time. Others perceptions may see a blessing as a gift from God, a favor from heaven. Of course, the greatest blessing is life itself!  Therefore you are a walking, talking blessing upon this earth filled with light and energy. Now before I get super woo-woo, hear me out… you see blessings are not one sided, it’s a two way street in the world of blessings.  I invite you to step into the blessing you are, the blessing you can become or the blessing you will receive.

 

Anytime you hear from a special person stating I love you, I am proud of you, you are wonderful, the Universe/God, releases strength in you. These are not just words that you say; these are blessings that propel others toward their destiny.  Blessings that a Mother gives her child or children, a teacher shares to her students, a friend says to a friend, a wife and husband exchange are all blessings to reaching your true potential. That’s how powerful the energy of blessings can be.

 

Even a stranger can be a blessing, in disguise.  A blessing is a difference maker, the strategic piece to the puzzle that becomes the healing balm of what you may pray for or need, just in time, which pivots you to a place of belonging. What may seem minor to you can change the world with how you made that person feel. For example, I had a mailbox at a local spot in town where I picked up my packages and mail. I befriended the owner and got a chance to learn about her life and what a hard worker she was with running her service impeccably, as well as the sacrifices she made to please her customers. One day, I stepped into her office and sat down to say hi and catch up. Susan was dismayed and shared that her business was being sued from an unhappy bride and customer whose wedding dress was ruined upon shipping. Susan told her it was important for her to sign for extra insurance, in case anything happened in the delivery process, the new bride, against Susan’s advice, chose not to pay for the extra insurance. Long story short, the dress sent by Fedex endured a storm and the dress was ruined. The bride blamed the mail delivery service and was suing Susan for $5k.  As I listened to her story, I simply said, I would not lose sleep over this; it’s not your fault. A couple of weeks later I popped in to get my mail and Susan stopped me and said, “you have no idea how much your words meant to me, that was the first time I was able to sleep through the night.” It looked as if the world was lifted off of her shoulders. Apparently, the case was settled and even though she did not have to pay for the damage, she offered the bride half the monies, for peace of mind. So, a double blessing, Susan was relieved and the bride was given compensation for her entire dress between Fedex and Susan’s goodness from her heart. Who knew a simple statement, was a blessing to Susan’s ears that day.

Blessings come in ways you don’t expect that offer an approval when at a point of no return. Even the small blessings that come along add up. Like when you are in traffic and late for work and the guy waves you ahead in line, or you are short changed at the store and the person at the cashier says’ don’t worry about it or the time you lost your keys and go back to where you thought they were and a stranger looks at you and says, hey are these your keys?  The panic and near surrender to doom and gloom and then voila completely reversed, the skies open up and placed you in a spot of relief where all is well in the world. And you may think whew! Count your blessings, right?

 

Blessings are the gift that keeps giving; yet the problem lies with allowing the blessings to come in. You see, life is an enormous feast and most of us are only eating half of it. Think of all the good that has come to you where you shrugged it off, turned away or simply took it for granted. When life offers you a penny, you want a dime. When life offers you love, you reject it out of fear. When life offers you an opportunity, it’s shunned. This is the ego’s playground, the resistance that lies within of “ not good enough.” When you deny your goodness, you are denying others and by doing so you are saying no to life and blocking blessings from coming in.

 

We all want to live blessed lives free from health issues, or financial struggle, where our relationships are harmonious and we are thriving. Perhaps you are awaiting a blessing right now?

 

Here are a few tips to invite a blessing into your life:

Allow blessings to come in, you must say YES to life and live fully.

  1. Delight in the Universe and presence of your life force; engage in the power of you and childlike wonder.
  2. Be in the moment of life and life rewards you back with blessings.

3. Realize that you are already blessed, cause you are here on this earth as a spiritual being having a human experience. Shine your light.

4. Know that you are loved for who you are and we are blessed to have you. You are a blessing.

5. Blessings are happening frequently. From the time you wake up to the time you go to bed, all day everyday, blessings are taking shape in and around us. Believe it.

 

I leave you with one of my favorite quotes: “ I thank God for protecting me from what I thought I wanted and blessing me with what I didn’t know I needed.” – unknown
