WHAT WOULD YOU NAME TODAY - THE 10 BLESSINGS GAME
OCTOBER 7, 2009: We start with a sweet exercise called “The 10 Blessings” by Dr William Holden. It goes like this, look over the last week of your life and write down 10 blessings you experienced in the last seven days. It’s not much to ask because all we need to do is find one blessing per 16.8 hours of life. And if you think about 10 ways you blessed others lives that’s consciously thinking of goodness every 8.4 hours. Now do the math and consider if you could somehow multiply that by 2 so you think of 40 things every week: 20 blessings received and 20 blessings offered that’s something every 2.1 hours.
This helps us keep the focus on the important questions like: How can you enjoy the miracle of existence today? How can I enjoy this moment more?
The more you are willing to enjoy the moment the more beautiful each moment of your life will be. Essentially it means you are choosing life. And life only happens one moment at a time. The more you give yourself to each moment, the more each moment gives something back to you! Please starting now don’t miss a thing! Think about waking up to your life and start naming your day something beautiful! Love and light, Silvia
“Awaken to the mystery of being here
And eneter the quiet immensity of your own presence.
Have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
Receive encouragement when new frontiers beckon.
Respond to the call of your gift and the courage to
follow it’s path.
May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame.
May anxiety never linger about you.
May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of
Take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven
Around the heart of wonder.”
Navajo prayer to enjoy
“Happily may I walk.
May it be beautiful before me.
May it be beautiful behind me.
May it be beautiful below me.
May it be beautiful above me.
May it be beautiful all around me.
It beauty, it is finished.”
