May: A Billion Blessings
Join us this month as we revel in the billion blessings we are granted each day—no, each moment! Spirit infuses everything and every instant with love, kindness, abundance, health and prosperity. Since we are individualized emanations of this Spirit we realize that we are all that as well. And to be bathed in all those blessings all we have to do is say, “Yes!” Yes, Spirit, I open to receive and respond to all that I already am.
The poet Aberjhani says, “Shine your soul with the same humility as the rainbow, and no matter where you go in this world or the next, love will find you, attend you, and bless you.” Indeed, it is by “shining our soul,” being all that we are called to be, that allows us to experience both the giving and receiving of Spirit’s billion blessings.
I receive Spirit’s blessing when I look around and acknowledge all that God does and is to support me. It provides me with everything I need to live the life of my dreams. And I give a blessing when I look around and think that whatever I sense is God incarnate, and I say thank you. Thank you, Spirit. It’s as simple as that.
