talk about your blessings

Good Morning! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!  As I have not been feeling well lately, there will be no angel/spirit messages this week. I don’t like to leave you guys hanging though. So I leave you with this exercise for this week.  Let me know how it works out for you. Have a blessed week!

Consider the exercise called Three Blessings. It is already one of the classics in the field. This amazingly simple technique has been shown to have a powerful, positive effect on reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety, while simultaneously increasing a sense of joy and well-being.

The task is simple enough. As your day comes to a close, allow yourself to think about three things that happened during the day that you are most happy about, and why you believe they happened.

The simple elegance of this exercise is part of the appeal, and in some ways the stumbling block people may find difficulty overcoming. Could it really be that something so easy could have such profound results? The unequivocal answer is yes!

I encourage you to reflect this evening on the three blessings in your day. You may want to write these down and think about why they may have come into your life. Try this twice more during the week and note how you feel. If you need more encouragement to try this, consider these words from Charles Dickens: “Reflect on your present blessings, on which every man has many, not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
