Being a Blessing

I was thinking the other day about living my life with purpose, and what the most important considerations are for me in choosing who I want to be in my life right now.  It's interesting how the answer to that changes over time, as my priorities change with increasing experience.

My perspective as a middle-aged woman is certainly different from when I was younger, raising kids and working hard to make ends meet.  All of those experiences helped shape my ideas of the world and my place in it; now it feels like I have time to really hear the quiet voice of spirit within me, and design the remaining days of my life from my own deep purpose.

I recognize that the priorities I feel now will change in time, too, as I've had a chance to experience and assimilate the lessons I'm learning in present time.  But I've noticed that the older I get the more important it becomes for my life to follow guideposts of my own conscious choosing.

One of my present-time guideposts is simply to be a blessing.  In choosing to be a blessing, we automatically make our decisions from the part of ourselves that is connected with truth, and we are able to transcend judgement, resentment, or any other things that can come up when we're acting from a more fearful place.  We are able to do, and be, our best.

By making a conscious decision to be a blessing, we affirm our good, and let our awareness of God expressing through us shine through.  We validate what is true of us.  And when we raise our own vibration to awareness of God at work within ourselves and in all things, we raise the vibration of the entire world and everyone in it.

Being a blessing is like a prayer.  When we choose this day to be a blessing, as we ask, we are answered.  We give our best to the world, and are provided for in kind.  And as we live in the truth of our own divine nature, our own voice is God's voice in the world.

May this tool be a blessing. . .

  1. I like this idea of consciously being a blessing. I'm only in my early 30s but my son has grown up and started a family of his own so I am in the fortunate position of being able to consider these things at a relatively young age.

    I am grateful to have found a site like yours that helps turn my mind to the important lessons that might help me grow.

    Thank you.
