Blessings are intended to do people good and uplift their spirit. It feels nice to have someone’s good wishes. It spreads confidence and well being. Priests, Nuns and Monks use blessings to greet people as well as saying goodbye.

Blessings are used in the mass to introduce and read the postulate to the people and most often people stand up for this reading. This is to get us to be closer and to show a highest respect for the reading.

The Blessing is therefore creating an atmosphere for people to be closer to the unknown holy world. Whether this holy world is real or not is not the important thing. Whether God exists or not is a moot point. It is feeding the good spirit and well being that is so important because then it can be replicated in every situation, good or bad, wherever you are or whatever troubles you are facing.

Even houses, buildings, ships and other transport constructions are often blessed. We see priests and politicians alike standing together in opening ceremonies of  new official construction af any kind.

Christmas cards are sent to carry wishful words on our behalf as well as other messages in the time when we finish the year and look forward to the new one.

The outcome is also favourable for the one that is giving the blessing or sending the well wishes because he/she feels good about doing good and it gives their life an added purpose. On top of that the receivers often send high spirited thanks and thoughts back to the blesser.  When giving a blessing it is important to accept that the feedback is not necessarily instantaneous.  We cannot say if, how and when we reap the rewards which makes the feedback unconditioned. That is what makes the outcome so favourable for both parties and even others as well.

That is why it is so important to incorporate blessings into your daily life. Workmates, family, spouse, children, friends or anyone who is near and matters to you needs these emotional boosts. Send them or say to them words of good fortune with your blessings. Boost them up. Look kindly upon their actions and encourage them to do well.

May you have the blessings of good will.
