Blind to Blessings

I was just outside chasing my little boy and it occurred to me that if I didn’t have him in my life, I simply wouldn’t get as much exercise as I do.  I wouldn’t have as much joy and laughter as I do.  It would be so much easier for me to get sucked completely into work and my professional life and lose sight of fun and playfulness.

The fearful parts of the mind instinctively focus on potential dangers and problems.  It’s their job and it’s often a very good thing for us.  I, for one, am grateful that I’ve got something in my mind which pulls me up short and stops me from blindly walking into traffic or off the edge of a cliff!  I’m glad I’ve got fear, it is a blessing; but, it is a blessing that has a down side.  Fear can leave us so focused on dangers that we miss the blessings in our lives that are right in front of us.  (Including the blessing that is fear!  Have you ever gotten stuck in the nasty cycle of being afraid of your own fear?)

It is important to be aware of the fact that in no moment are you completely aware of all the possibilities.  You are never aware of all the options.  You are never aware of all the viewpoints and perspectives.  And, that’s a good thing to know.  Maybe even let yourself feel a little afraid of what you don’t know.  (Just a little though…)  Fear is great at focusing the mind and giving motivation and a sense of urgency to what you’re doing.  Or, even better, find a sense of playful curiosity within you.  Can you do that, now?  Can you remember what playful curiosity feels like?  Can you imagine that you’re starting to feel that now as you begin pondering the question of what blessings in your life you have been blind to?

And, as part of you is starting to consider that question, now, I wonder how much of this considering is happening consciously and how much is happening subconsciously?  As your mind is searching, now, for those things in your life that are blessings and that are worthy of your love and appreciation, how much are you aware of that searching, now?  How much more of that process of looking for those things in your life which are blessings is happening below the surface, now?  How much of this process of becoming aware, now, of those things in your life that are blessings that you hadn’t noticed were blessings, yet, is happening on a subconscious level, now?  What are you realizing, now, that you hadn’t thought of before?  What are you realizing throughout the day as your subconscious makes these thoughts, now, known to the conscious mind?

How much deeper is your appreciation of life growing, now, as it is becoming more and more easy to spot those things that you had taken for granted and those blessings that you had been blind to; but, that you are becoming more aware of, now?  How much more aware are you becoming, now, of the blessings in your life?  How much deeper is your awareness of the fact that you truly are blessed growing?  How good does it feel as you are remembering that truth, now?  How good do you feel in this moment as your subconscious mind is recalling and remembering just how blessed you really are?

And, how much more aware are you becoming by the day, now?  What fresh insights are popping into your mind in the days and weeks ahead as you are learning even more deeply that your life really is full of blessings?  How much easier is it to love and appreciate your life, now?  How much easier are you finding it by the day to let go of unnecessary fear?  How much happier, more peaceful and more calm are you becoming as you are letting go of your tendency to over focus on fearful thoughts and learning to focus instead on those blessings in your life?  How glad are you that this is happening, now?  How much deeper is your appreciation becoming, now?

And, I wonder, just how much are you going to be able to notice the changes that are happening, now?  How much of that process will you be consciously aware of and how much of this process of change aren’t you noticing as your mind is focused on other things?  How deeply aware are you of your growing tendency to focus on love and appreciation, now?  How much are you aware of how much happier you’re becoming, now?

What’s it like for you, now, as this process of integrating a deeper level of love and appreciation is unfolding for you?  Are you aware, in this moment, of any sensations in your body?  What is it that those sensations that you are aware of are able to let you know, now, about how deeply your subconscious mind is integrating the lessons that you are learning, now?  Can you get this sense within that you are easily, effortlessly and naturally learning to notice more of the blessings in your life; or, have you not yet noticed the way that this sense is growing, now?  When this sense that you are easily, effortlessly and naturally able to notice and appreciate the as yet unnoticed blessings in your life is, growing now, what’s that like for you?  How are the sensations in your body that you are able to notice shifting, now, as your ability to notice the blessings in your life is growing?

Do you know, yet, just how deeply your mind is transforming, now?  Just how much are you now able to easily, effortlessly and naturally find yourself noticing more and more of the blessings in your life that you had been unaware of consciously before?  How much is your subconscious awareness of the countless blessings in your life multiplying now?  How much stronger is your natural awareness of just how blessed you really are in life growing, now?  Have you noticed, yet, the way that this process of, naturally noticing blessings more, is growing stronger, now?

How strong has it grown, now?  And, have you yet noticed, the way that, this process is growing stronger, by the minute?  Are you aware of the way that, this process is intensifying, now, and how it is that, you’re unconscious, is able to easily, create these changes, for you, now?  How is it that, you’re unconscious, is able to so easily, effortlessly and naturally create these positive changes, now?  Do you know how it is that, this is happening now?  Do you really need to understand, consciously at least, how it is that, your subconscious is creating these, positive changes, now?

When do you think, it is that you will notice, that you are able, now, to become easily aware of more and more blessings in your life?  Is it, do you think, that you are simply, able to notice, more of the blessings that you already have; or, is it now, perhaps, that you have somehow started to, naturally attract more blessings, now, into your life?  Do you think that, now, in some way, you are able to attract more blessings, now?  Is it, perhaps, that your growing ability to appreciate the blessings that you do have is, naturally allowing you, now, to, somehow, attract more blessings into your life?

Have you noticed, yet, that there is some kind of, positive spiral, now, which makes it so the more of the blessings in your life you are, appreciating now, the more open, you are becoming, now, to allowing more blessings into your life?  Do you think that this natural process of, attracting more blessings, now, is just a normal consequence of noticing and being aware?  Is this process that, you are noticing, now, where you are attracting more blessings into your life through, more love and appreciation, now, just a result of physical cause and effect; or, is it, perhaps, that, there is some mystical force, now, which is attracting, more blessings, now, into your life the more, you are able to love and appreciate more, now?

What will it be like, now, in that moment when, you are becoming aware, of the way that you are both, naturally, now, effortlessly noticing more of the blessings that you have, now, and the way, you are naturally attracting, more blessings into your life, now, as if by magick?  What is it, do you think, that will be the first of these new blessings that, you are attracting, now, that you are able to become aware of?  What is it, precisely, that you are, attracting now, that is of the most benefit to you, now?  How grateful is it, do you think, that, you are feeling, when you are noticing this blessing which is, somehow, coming to you, now?

What is it, do you think, about your, growing sense of gratitude, now, which is allowing you to so much more, easily and effortlessly attract more blessings, now, into your life?  How do you think, it is, that this, growing gratitude, now, that you are feeling, is able to, bring even more blessings, into your life, now?  And, in the days and weeks ahead, just, precisely, how much do you think you will be able to notice the ways in which your, growing sense of gratitude, now, is allowing you to, naturally attract more blessings, now?  How much stronger, do you think, this effect is, growing now, by the day, as the more you notice that, this is happening, and that knowledge that, this is happening, reinforces the, positive changes, now, in such a way that the more you notice the positive changes, the stronger they are becoming, now?

Did you know when you started to read this article, today, that you would be, changing so profoundly, now?  Did you already know how powerful the, hypnotic effects, now, of my writing are becoming for you, now?  Did you know that you could so, naturally and easily change, now, and that you would find it so enjoyable to just, let these changes happen, now?
