Do You Block Daily Blessings Unknowingly?

Do You Block Daily Blessings Unknowingly? - PleaseNotes

It's a common feeling that the Universe is withholding blessings from you, but let me reassure you—the Universe wants to shower you with blessings every day. The only person who can block these blessings is you. Fear, doubt, and impatience act like an umbrella, preventing these blessings from reaching you. Let’s explore how we might be unknowingly blocking our daily blessings and practical steps to unblock them.

We all go through phases where we feel discontent, or hopeless. Sometimes, these feelings stem from blocking our own blessings. If you’re afraid to try something new, get a new job, or commit to a relationship, you might be preventing yourself from receiving wonderful opportunities. Complaining, feeling jaded, or constantly focusing on what you lack can also block blessings. Let’s delve into why this happens and how we can change it.

Signs You Might Be Blocking Your Blessings:

  1. Relying on Your Own Perspective: Often, we rely solely on our perspective, missing out on the blessings right in front of us. Every breath, meal, and act of kindness is a blessing. Recognizing these small miracles can shift our mindset and open us to more blessings.

  2. Discontent and Complaining: Being discontent with what we have or complaining a lot can block blessings. When we focus on negativity, we close ourselves off to the positive things life has to offer. Shifting to a mindset of gratitude can make a big difference.

  3. Lack of Gratitude: Not being thankful for what we already have can prevent new blessings from coming into our lives. Embracing gratitude daily reflections and practicing the power of gratitude can transform our outlook.

  4. Self-Centeredness: If we’re not being a blessing to others, we might find it harder to receive blessings ourselves. Helping others and being kind can create a flow of positivity and blessings.

  • Opening Up to More Blessings: By addressing these barriers, we open ourselves to receive more blessings.
  • Positive Mindset: Practicing gratitude and positivity can shift our entire outlook, making us happier and more content.
  • Improved Relationships: Being a blessing to others can strengthen our relationships and create a supportive community around us.

Example and Tips

A while ago, I was constantly complaining about my job and felt like nothing good was coming my way. One day, I decided to try something different and started a gratitude journal. I began writing down what I'm grateful for every day, even if it was just five minutes before bed. My gratitude journal prompts included simple things like "I'm thankful for the sunshine today" and "I'm grateful for my family's support."

At first, it felt a bit forced, but over time, I noticed a shift in my mindset. Focusing on the positive aspects of my life, no matter how small, helped me see the blessings that were always there but I had overlooked. I started to create an "I am thankful for" list, and it grew every day. This practice not only made me more aware of my blessings but also opened the door for new ones to come into my life.

Here are some practical steps to unblock your blessings:

  • Reflect and Acknowledge: Identify specific barriers hindering your blessings. Recognizing these is the first step toward change.
  • Prayer and Meditation: Seek guidance through prayer and meditation. This can provide clarity and direction.
  • Positive Affirmations: Replace negative thoughts with positive affirmations. This simple practice can shift your mindset.
  • Gratitude Journaling: Regularly record your blessings. This fosters a positive outlook and helps you focus on the good. Use gratitude journal prompts like “Today, I am thankful for…” and watch how it transforms your day.
  • Community Engagement: Connect with a supportive community. Sharing experiences and receiving encouragement can be incredibly uplifting.
  • Scripture and Faith: Draw strength from spiritual teachings. Trust in God’s promises and let your faith guide you.

Examples of written blessings in a gratitude journal could include:

  • "I am thankful for my family and friends who love and support me."
  • "I am grateful for my good health and the ability to wake up each morning."
  • "I am grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow each day."
  • "I am grateful for the beautiful world around me."

These are just a few examples to get you started. The beauty of gratitude journaling lies in its personal nature. Write down anything that brings you joy or makes you feel thankful.
