The Gift of the Three Blessings
by Rev. Lisa Giroux
Pathways to Peace, Purpose and Prosperity
What a blessing it is to live in the mountains of Colorado. Our Summer Season is short, stunningly beautiful, with bright blue skies and green mountain meadows. The days are warm and the nights chilly. Every Summer Solstice I have mixed emotions as I enjoy the frequency of dynamic sunlight. I dance with delight in the Dandelions, and silently mourn as they turn their puffy white knowing the light is fading.
This Solstice I chose to do a meditation and Labyrinth walk with another Spiritual Teacher. It was a bright, beautiful sunny morning as we meditated on our own compassion and mindfully walked the labyrinth. Afterward I stopped for a mint chocolate chip ice cream cone that I thoroughly enjoyed while sitting under the beauty of a Lilac bush that was in full purple display and appreciated all the sights, scents and sounds of summer feeling fully connected and very blessed.
Summer is a great time to reconnect to the earth and prepare for the coming harvest. In spring we plant our seeds of intention and watch with wonder as they come to fruition, as “trees bend with ripening fruit” We are that ripening fruit, when we connect to all the frequencies and vibrations of the Divine. To perceive this connection is too a blessing.
Without connection we are flaky, flighty, fearful and unable to reach toward our potential. We move without confidence or purpose. Across the globe we are sorely lacking this connection, and this lack is seen in the “pockets” of chaos that are now exploding and expanding in all directions as the reset continues.
One way we can move toward connection and regain our confidence and balance is to perform ritual, or righting of the energy. One of my regular rituals to use “The Ancient Gift of the Blessings” It is a teaching that originated from the wisdom of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The Gift of the Blessings is a way to clear our frequency of the negative energies that have become trapped within each of us and cause chaos in our mind and body. Learning to use it regularly will melt away these negative frequencies and restore our balance and our connection to all that IS.
Use it anytime. The more we use it the clearer we become. It is simple, powerful and effective.
The first blessing is for all who suffer. Those who have been devastated by earthly disasters, manmade horror, political confusion, or their own warped mind. We bless them for their suffering.
The second blessing is for those energies and entities that cause the suffering. They are the perpetrators. They are those who have not come to this planet to weave light or have been damaged by others. They continue to vibrate in dark places and spaces. They who have chosen pain and suffering for themselves and inflict it upon others. They are corrupt and we bless them. Maybe we bless them most for their suffering and the suffering they cause. We are not excusing bad behavior we are transmuting it for the benefit of all.
The third blessing is for our self . It is for those of us who are sensitive in nature and need to unload the frequency of the horror we witness. Whether it is on the news, in our home, in our schools, or in our own minds. We Bless our self profoundly and repeatedly for what we have witnessed and let it go. We will know we have released this suffering when we feel the shift in our own vibration.
Before I gave up TV I would bless those images on the screen of people in the throes of chaos and crisis, blessing them, the perpetrators or causes of the crisis and myself for witnessing. It gave me the power to detach, strengthen my own frequency and restore my peace of mind.
Without peace of mind we cannot witness peace on earth. Please try this powerful tool to help you rebalance your sensitivities toward the love and light and minimize the damage caused by the images and experiences we are exposed to everyday.
Life is a beautiful walk!
With this practice we become strengthened because of our empathy for all beings. Our compassion expands for others AND our self. As the Buddha said: “If our compassion does not include our self it is incomplete.”
Part of our journey is to be complete and connect each day. Not a fractured frequency contaminating the collective with our own dysfunction. We are here to heal and be healed and thru our daily Simple Practice we do.
Thank you so much for your time. I am wishing you love and light throughout your journey. Continue to be Divinely Guided, Directed, Protected and Effective in all you choose to do as we continue to bring about the shift toward the Light. Namaste, Lisa
