“To bless is to acknowledge the omnipresent, universal beauty hidden to material eyes.” ~ The Gentle Art of Blessing
There are many reasons to bless. We bless to help heal society. We bless to get out of the shell or cave of our little egos and open up to the world. We bless as a wonderful way of practicing mindfulness and staying present to the present – anywhere. We bless because it is a highly efficient way of solving relationship problems and personal challenges Blessing isn’t associated with any religious denominations.
I do not believe there is any “right” way of blessing. The intention and sincerity of the heart are infinitely more important than any so-called correct way of giving a blessing, and any formulas or rigid forms in this field are a direct route to failure. A blessing that is just on the level of the mind has no healing power whatsoever. One can never stress too much that blessing is one hundred percent heart energy. To heal, I believe it has to be felt in the heart.
Ultimately, however, I personally see blessing as an expression of growing in love, which I believe is our ultimate reason for being here.
Blessing is a way of sending unconditional love, peace, healing, goodness to a person or a situation, or simply seeing them bathed in that love.
It is becoming more and more apparent to a growing number of us on this planet that the material world we live in is, in some manner, a total dream (even though it can often be a nightmare!) and that we are here on earth to learn much-needed lessons (that we ourselves possibly chose before coming on earth).
Many research studies have shown (Larry Dossey, MD, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dean Radin at the Institute Noetic Sciences, Dr. Masaru Emoto, Dr. Bruce Lipton, and others) that loving, healing thoughts, and that includes blessing, have an immense healing potential, not only on the individual level, but also for the world, hence the title of my book. I believe with many others that the number one issue, challenge and need in the world today is raising world consciousness, because the solution of every single problem ultimately depends on that. And here our collective blessings have an immense and perhaps decisive role to play.
