Most of the time I have received this message with more irritation than gratitude. Usually this card comes at a time when something I consider disturbing has occurred.
I wish I could say that I welcome this message then gracefully begin to the bless the situation around me that caused my upheaval. Instead, I seem to need to grumble a bit, even though the mere reading of the card has already caused me to roll my eyes as I begin to shift from my position. I cannot argue with the premise that certain situations — usually the most disturbing ones — act as a wake-up call to spur me back into alignment with my most divine self.
There is a certain element of freedom for me when I remember that my blessing the situation will cause it to vibrate at a higher frequency. To bless means to confer energy upon. When we bless something, it brings the energy of Divine Intelligence and Love into the circumstances. It also gives us the opportunity to ask for a Creative Solution when we are so confused we can’t see our way through to a happy ending. The Divine always offers a solution inherent within every difficult situation, as long as we raise our vibrations to match our desired outcome. As Einstein said, we can’t solve a problem from the place it was created, so we have to raise our energy frequencies in order to experience the solutions we prefer.
Our prayers act as a beacon to call to us the energy that we want to experience in life. Those who have had near-death experiences report seeing brilliant streamers of light shooting off the earth as people pray. They were even shown the angels waiting to fulfill those prayers. It has been said that there are many angels just waiting for us to ask for their assistance. It is their job to help us out, but since we live on a free-will planet, we have to be the ones to ask first. I find this promise of support very reassuring.
So when discordant situations arise in my life, I am committing to start praying for assistance and remember to bless the situation. This blessing, as soon as I become conscious that I need balance, starts the process of bringing some beautiful light into whatever is going on. I also choose to be grateful for the clarity that comes to me when I am shown what I do not want in my life. Even though it feels like a disturbance in the Force, it serves as a catalyst to make me abundantly clear about what I would prefer to experience. That is a gift.
My next step will be to write down intentions for what I do want to experience and send blessing energy to this clear awareness. I might even say:
Divine Presence, thank you for the clarity inherent in this situation that has felt so disturbing. I ask for your blessing in and through all involved so that what I need to know is available to me in graceful ways. I ask to come back into alignment with my Source energy and be receptive to the guidance I need to move from this place into more trust, wisdom and divine right action. Thank you God, and so it is.
I want also to remember that I need to give thanks in advance, knowing that all my needs are being met as long as I am a vibrational match for what I truly desire in my life. It is getting easier to trust this process because I have seen it work so often. Only now it is even more exciting, because the change that comes when I bless the uncomfortable situation is often amazingly quick.
There must have been angels just waiting for me to ask for help…
