Blessing Ourselves

20 02 2008

When I think of blessings I tend to think that they are something we do over those we love. Without even thinking I realize that we many times forget that one of those people should be us. In the crazy daily routine of our life we tend to forget that we are many times the ones who need those blessings the most. Life is not an easy, ecstatic entity which we can deal with once and move on. Life evolves in time and transforms our existence according to our experiences and how we respond to them. Each experience is intended to help us move along a path, help us grow, and help us live the life we were meant to live. Circumstances are the catalyst that ignites our awareness to an immediate situation that needs attention.

The last day of our life could be any day, so it makes perfect sense to begin each day with a blessing to help us in our journey. In the Hispanic culture it is custom to ask for a blessing every time you meet any elder from the family. When my son began to drive on his own I began to bless him every time before he left the house in his car. Today he is far away so I pray and ask for blessings at a distance. For the ones still with me I constantly bestow blessings and pray for particular intentions to help them in their life.

Blessings are a way to confer spiritual power to be applied in the physical realm. It’s a way to connect our inner nature to our external. It’s a necessary ingredient to balance our being. I don’t believe we have to be a holy person to bestow a blessing since we are a mere channel of the blessing. The blessing doesn’t come from us but from God, we only open ourselves to his unending goodness and allow him to use us as we transmit it unto others. When we bless ourselves we do exactly the same thing for ourselves and God knows how undeserving we are of those blessings but if we ask it is given to us out of love.

As I move along my life I ask for special blessings on my journey, that I might move along the path I was meant to walk on and to make of my life what he intended all along. It takes time to learn what that is but we get to know it when we feel at peace with our actions and decisions in life, when we learn to love ourselves before we love someone else and most of all when you show others to do the same.

The power of blessing makes human journey easier and make his path smooth. Blessing can be invoked by our lifestyle and the way we individually conducts our lives ,more importantly a higher spiritual being- in form of a creator- can make a greater difference. The creator’s blessing makes human looks like super man
