Stress Positive. Eliminate Negativity.

To bless something or someone means to give recognition or emphasis to apositive quality, characteristic or condition, with the intention that what you recognize or emphasize will increase, continue or come into being. As you know, blessing may be done with imagery or touch. Perhaps the most common and easy way to do it is with words.

ADMIRATION ~ this is the offering of compliments or praise to somethinggood that you notice, like, "What a beautiful sunset; I like that dress; you're so much fun."

AFFIRMATION ~ this is a specific statement of blessing for increase orendurance, like, "I bless the beauty of this tree; blessed be the healthof your body; I am grateful to share small acts of kindness today."APPRECIATION ~ this is an _expression of gratitude that something goodexists or has happened, like, "Thank you, Great Spirit for hearing me; give thanks to the rain for nourishing the land."

ANTICIPATION ~ this is blessing for the future, like, "We're going to havea great picnic; I bless your increased crop and income; Thank you forintroducing my perfect mate; I wish you a happy journey; May the wind bealways at your back." In order to gain the most benefit from blessing, you will have to give up or cut way down on the thing that negates it: CURSING. This doesn’t mean swearing or saying bad words. It refers to the opposite of blessing, namely criticizing instead of admiring; doubting instead of affirming; blaming instead of appreciating and worrying instead of anticipating with trust." Whenever any of these negative things are done they cancel out some of the effects of your blessing. So the more you curse the harder it will be and the longer it will take to get the good from blessing. On the other hand, the more you bless the less harm any cursing will do.Examples for blessing various common needs, desires or choices:

HEALTH ~ Bless healthy people, animals and even plants; everything that iswell constructed; everything that expresses abundant energy.HAPPINESS ~ Bless all that is good, or the good in all people and all things; all the signs of happiness that you see, hear or feel in people or animals.
