Self-blessing has been in personal and ceremonial use for many years by people around the world for divine protection and favor.
In this blog I'll share how you can incorporate this beautiful practice into you self-care routine, and why it beneficial.
Self-blessing is for anyone and everyone who can use a little extra dose of self-love!
What is a Self-Blessing?
A self-blessing is an invocation of Love (Grace, Universal Life Force, Chi, Prana, God's presence, Higher Self) for the purpose of surrounding yourself with protection and favor.
It's a method of grounding, honoring your being (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual), and anchoring your thoughts in Love.
Benefits of Self-Blessing
Adding this beautiful practice to your daily self-care routine will help you to cultivate self-love and raise your vibration.
Self-blessing is a powerful way to move from a place of emotional pain to one of purpose.
This is for you if you struggle with any of the following:
Feelings of brokenness, abandonment issues, unworthiness (low self-worth, low self-esteem, self-loathing), bitterness, feeling like a victim, self-criticism, a lack of compassion, people-pleasing behavior, ruminating on negative experiences, self-defeating thoughts, negative beliefs about yourself and other, difficulty with empathy, feelings of disconnection, and emptiness.
Simply begin and end each day with a 5-7 minute self-blessing to raise your vibration.
Don't worry about what you life looks like right now, because every situation is temporary.
Don't concern yourself with how things will get better. Just assume they are already better and keep you eye on he prize—I'm talkin' about lazer-like focus on being whole.
Over time, you'll start shifting your mindset to one that is in alignment with your highest good. You are powerful beyond measure. You've got this!
How To Do A Self-Blessing
There is no right or wrong way to do a self-blessing.
Simply use your favorite oil (i.e. our Self-Blessing Oil) to anoint any body part that you wish to bless.
As you anoint each area, speak words of affirmation to declare the blessing. 5-7 minutes at the beginning and end of each day goes a long way.
