Blessings do not have to be expensive gifts, something shiny and new and different, or related to your financial well-being, something out of the ordinary, or from the jewelry store.

Think of these as blessings:

The clean pure air you breathe every moment of your life, the amazing workings of your body, the beat of your heart, the flow of blood within you, your awareness making itself known through your senses,

the sight of the sky at sunrise and sunset, the sounds of birdsong, the fragrances of flowers, the sparkle of fresh snow, the colors and movements of a butterfly, your warm and comfortable home,

the creative spark within you, manifesting in your creating art, or designing your living space, devising a garden, creating a new process to make life easier, the relating to your children in loving and effective ways each day.

What can you add to this list of blessings?

Use your creative power and imagination to discern acknowledge and enjoy the amazing blessings in your life.

Tap into your light, power, and oneness

When it is dark, do you remember that you yourself are a source of light?

When you feel powerless, do you remember that your power lies within?

When you feel alone, do you remember that you are one with all of life?

When you are aligned with source, your light can bring you peace, show you the best way forward, help you define your life’s purpose, show you what is most important for you to focus on during your sojourn here with your precious limited time.

Knowing that you are a source of light will help you let go of the fluff, the trivia in your life and do what you came here to do.

When you call back and tap into your inner power, you will begin to move through fears that limit and stifle you. Your power will help you move forward in life with clarity, take action in the physical world that will bless you and others

Knowing your oneness and connection with all of life means you have constant guidance and spirit at your side. You will know your integral part in the web of life and that you belong here, you are needed wanted, and desired here!

You will no longer question your existence or if you have a right to take up space, breathe the air and use the water. You know will know in your heart that you’re not alone.

Bless yourself by tapping into your light, power and oneness and you bless yourself and all the earth.

Abundance is a state of mind

Abundance is not just money, coins and dollar bills, It is the world around you – the beauty around you, the people in your life, the land that supports you, the air you breathe, the water that gives you sustenance, the flow of energy through your life.

Abundance is in nature that surrounds and supports you and gives so freely and generously of her harvests and resources. It is the human made world of clothing and shelter, streets and roads, libraries, hospitals, places of safety and community. Abundance is the inspired offerings of art, music dance, theater, books, movies, writings, design and building, comedy and laughter – all manner of human creations.

Abundance is in the priceless laughter that bubbles up inside you and feeds your spirit! It is the sunlight bringing life to all things. Abundance is the tools, materials, and ideas to create and bring your inspirations to life.

Abundance is the freedom and time to enjoy the changing of the seasons, the gorgeous colors of fall – to take a few moments to watch the golden leaves float and spin and dance as they fall to Earth so they will feed the soil that supports your life.

Abundance is the food and drink on your table, day after day, year after year, nourishing and sustaining your body and soul. It is the loving friends, the helpful strangers, the kind neighbors that touch your heart and help you. It is the purring cats and snuggling dogs that share your life and bring your joy and companionship. Abundance is warm socks and boots on a cold day.

Most of all, abundance is in the feelings that flow through you – joy, inspiration, inner calm, soul satisfaction, contentment, happiness…  Even feelings of anger and fear are there for your information and learning, to help you know yourself and learn from life.

Abundance is the feeling of being blessed to overflowing! It is the ability to share the overflow of your blessings with others.

With appreciation, name your blessings and feel the feelings they awaken in you .  Make this your daily practice.

When you feel confident and secure enough to be generous with your blessings, no matter how much money you do or do not have, you are truly living a life of abundance and plenty!

The sunlight that makes all life possible. The earth under your feet supporting and feeding your life…

The starry night sky, the moonlit snowy landscape showing you the immensity of all that is, that there is more than this earth. Life is larger than any living thing can comprehend, yet you are here now. And you are blessed beyond measure…

The purring, happy, funny, friendly, joyful dancing, loving pets of your home, the patient potted plants that share and clean the air you breathe, and provide green in the dead of winter…

The inspiration that powers your life, the passion for creating that is inseparable from you. The music that moves you to your feet, that touches your heart, the infinite world of color that delights the eyes, the art that touches your emotions…

All living things, from butterfly to elephant, ant to honeybee, garter snake to eagle, grasses, moss, trees, all flowering, seeding, fruiting things rooted in the earth…

Your amazing body that serves you for a lifetime, allowing your spirit to have a physical experience on this earth.  The muscles and bones and sinew that form your framework, the heart that beats without exception your life long…

The warm touch of a loved one’s hand, their kind and loving words, the feel of their energy, the sound of their familiar voice, laughter from the heart….

The ability to see and taste and touch and know all the blessings that are yours every day of your life on earth – and to know they are good.
