Question: What is a blessing and what is it supposed to do?
Higgins: Two things to understand first:
1) You are beings of light energy. Energy emits a vibrational frequency. When you (the soul being) enter your body the body vibrates at the frequency that is specifically you. Your special energy tells everyone everywhere that you are you. In addition to emitting a special ‘me’ energy each of you also offers a continual vibration relative to everything going on around you. This vibration comes to you and through you from your broader, eternal Self.
This Eternal Self knows what your goals are and via these vibrations (experienced as emotions) guides you through life so you always know exactly what is right for you and what is not right for you.
Negative vibration (emotion) if maintained draws negative life experience. Positive emotion when maintained will draw positive life experience.
2) It is very easy in the Earth realm to shift the vibration of things around you. (Holding your own energetic Truth regardless of what is going on around you is one of the things you came here to perfect.) For example, speaking kindly to a plant will promote a positive vibration and the plant will thrive. Water can be altered, too. Speak kindly or speak harshly…the water molecules will shift accordingly.
To envision this imagine a person who has just been scolded: often their shoulders slump and the head drops forward. Water responds the same. All things respond this way to some degree.
A blessing is an invocation of positive energy. A blessing may be bestowed upon people or things.
The point of the blessing is to create a positive vibration within the blessed object that will then result in positive vibrational emissions from that object. Whether the blessed object is a person or a building the effect is the same: it creates a positive creative environment.
