Blessings are probably the simplest form of active magickal ritual a person can perform. The very process is predicated upon the understanding, cultivation, and conveyance of good will. It is an exercise in active compassion, and that desire to see others do well becomes the basis of the Work. As I see it, there are two ways into this practice: 1) You can seek to bless yourself & see yourself thrive, or 2) you can seek to bless others. Both are entirely valid, and the irony is that either path will automatically involve you performing the opposite of what you've chosen.
When you bless yourself, you indirectly bless all who interact with you, scaling up the potency of your efforts & all those who interact with you. When you bless others, you beneficially impact those that you will be interacting with, thereby improving your day perpetually, provided you keep up with the process. In this way, it's a very cool win/win & it's a powerful practice with an incredibly small, easily accessible way in to practicing magick. This is a tool, and with it you can improve your life and the lives of others quite readily.
If you find yourself interested in being able to do this, I will walk you through how you might go about doing so in this article. It is not a difficult process to begin, but there is a core tenement that must be respected if this is to function correctly: you must genuinely care for the person & want to see them do well. There is no room for selfishness in this process, even when you're working on yourself. That might seem counterintuitive, but selfishness is counter to true desire for improvement. It is an negative current that runs counter to that of compassion. It must be put in its place for you to be truly successful in this venture.
If you can create within yourself that desire to see others succeed without concern for self, you can convey this to spells & rituals. This very expression of active compassion changes the way the brain works and brings the body and mind in alignment with soul. As you create this emotion within yourself, focus it upon the person you care for in this context & spark alight a single candle while visualizing and appreciating the creation of "better" in their lives. See them happy, see them successful. Watch how your spell burns, and see what this feels like to you both during & after. Endlessly contemplate these rituals each time you do them, and you'll start to see and feel how the framework of the universe fits together.
All it takes is a single step. A continual effort like this can become life-changing. It will become life-changing if you let it. If you've not already signed up for the giveaway mentioned above, I would recommend you do so. If you are already participating in this, try doing this ritual directly alongside my efforts this coming Friday & see how that feels. ;)
Blessings to each of you. Thanks for reading.
