This easy, but powerful practice from energy healer, Benson Simmonds, is launching us into the New Year with a sense of abundance, grounding and joy.
We met Benson through the holistic pros at Beverly Hills’ Skin Worship and were blown away by his humble generosity and unique intuitive energy. We asked Benson to share a series of meaningful rituals with us to start the New Year. This gratitude slash manifestation ritual will have you looking outward in a new way that we hope you’ll carry through the whole year…
As we embrace the new year, we are all searching for that magic elixir, that sure-fire technique, meditation or action that will guarantee our success in 2018. In my book Soular Power I refer to these tools as richuals: rituals to make you rich, materially, emotionally and spiritually.
A true ritual will not only ensure your success, but it will also change your mood or state at the same time. As we know, joy is the secret to success in all areas. Anything that can shift you out of a darker state into joy will help you attract more joy, love and abundance.
The ritual I’m suggesting you use to change your destiny in the new year is to start blessing people daily. Blessing others is so deceptively simple that most people tend to discount how miraculous the process of blessing people daily can be.
My challenge for you is simple. Take ten people you know or work with. Or you can include on your blessing list someone you don’t know but pass in the street every day, or someone you’ve read about who is having some health or financial or “love” issue…
The Blessing Ritual.
Think of and/or visualize the person you plan to bless. Say,
“Blessings for joy, love, good health, abundance and success.”
Or you can become more specific,
“Blessings that you love and believe in yourself again and that you believe in your dreams again and manifest your dreams or healing with miraculous speed.”
The goal is to make them fun and have fun when you are sending the person their blessing!
+ Go through a daily ritual of sending a specific blessing or a general blessing to ten people on your blessing list. Send the blessings to your ten people, twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening, after dinner or before you go to bed. Do this for a series of ten days straight.
Call it your “10 for 10 challenge” where you bless 10 people twice daily for 10 days. Make a note of the day you start your bless-for-success campaign and see what powerful changes the divine brings, both to you and to the person you bless. In my experience, you will witness many miracles, small or large. And either way, you will start to feel great!
Why does sending blessings work? Because when you bless someone, for that moment you come out of yourself and share positive energy with someone else. Because blessing someone takes you out of your own fear, worry, doubt, etc. and it immediately shifts your mood and you feel better. You daily blessings don’t need to take much time, but if your 10 blessings take 60 seconds or more, even better.
You want to have a better business meeting? Job interview? Date? Simply bless (silently) the person or people you are meeting with and then notice how much more fun you have.
