How to Harvest Your Blessings

Posted By Cynthia James On October 15, 2009 @ 12:10 pm In Personal Growth | 1 Comment

The fall season is generally a time for harvesting crops. It is the time of year for seeing what has grown from the seeds that have been planted and then moving the harvest into storage for the winter. I was thinking about what I am harvesting at this time in my life, and what came is that I am harvesting a myriad of blessings.

This year has been amazing. I set an intention [1] to grow my business and to be in higher service to people. The universe responded in powerful ways. My writing this article is a part of the gifts I have received. I was honored to lead two groups of people to France to walk the labyrinth in the Chartres Cathedral and have profound breakthroughs. I launched the Cynthia James Support Network, which has garnered incredible feedback. I could go on, but I am sure you get the point.

I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love and love what I do. Every day, I wake up with a smile on my face and enthusiasm in my heart [2]. I have been writing down these blessings (for the storage of my heart) to keep me aware of the ways in which I am supported.

Reflect on your own blessings

What are the blessings that have come your way this year? What seeds have you planted that are now offering you opportunities to give thanks? We sometimes move so quickly in our lives that we forget to stop [3] and honor the blessings. I invite you to take a moment and look at your life, family, friends, children and grandchildren (just to name a few).

Please take some time this week to journal about your blessings, create a blessings box or just make a list that you can look at daily. They do not have to be BIG events. Sometimes, a baby’s smile is enough to move us through any time of challenge [4].

By the way, you are a blessing in this world and to the many lives that you touch every day.

Take a moment to remember this:

Today, I count my blessings and hold them in my heart as reminders of the seeds that I have sown.
