According to the ancient Polynesian wisdom of Ka Huna, we should bless that which we want.
The shamans of Hawaii use the power of words and mind to heal the self, others and situations. They believe:
- If we resent people who have what we want, our resentment keeps what we desire away. (Don’t you want to avoid resentful people?)
- If we believe ourselves unworthy of receiving, that drives away the object of our desire. (Wouldn’t you rather hang around with confident friends?)
Resentment and feelings of unworthiness are both negative emotions. When we bless, there’s no room for negativity. Blessing nuzzles it out of the way.
Blessing has no space for thoughts like:
- “Oh sure, why does he get to live in a big house when I’m stuck in a tiny apartment.”
- “Those shoes would look so much better on me.”
- “I don’t want to be a multi-millionaire. I don’t want to have to worry about handling all that money.”
When we bless others, their day gets a little brighter, and we feel better too. The positives grow in an ever-expanding ripple.
What do you want to bless today?
