May You Be Blessed

During savasana, I tend to share a reading that aligns with the theme of the class. At the start of the new year, I shared the following poem with my students. They all have such beautiful practices and my one wish is that they all are be blessed with love, laughter and light throughout the year. 

Carpinteria, California 

Here is my blessing for them (written so beautifully by Kate Nowak):

May You Be Blessed 

May you be blessed with all things good.
May your joys, like the stars at night, be too numerous to count.
May your victories be more abundant than all the grains of sand
on all the beaches on all the oceans in all the world.

May lack and struggle be always absent from your life
and may beauty order and abundance be your constant companions.
May every pathway you choose lead to
that which is pure and good and lovely.

May every doubt and fear be replaced by a deep abiding trust
as you behold evidence of a Higher Power all around you.
And when there is only darkness and the storms of life are closing in
May the light at the core of your being illuminate the world.

May you always be aware you are loved beyond measure
and may you be willing to love unconditionally in return.
May you always feel protected and cradled in the arms of God,
like the cherished child you are.

And when you are tempted to judge may you be reminded
that we are all ONE and that every thought you think reverberates
across the universe, touching everyone and everything.

And when you are tempted to hold back,
may you remember that love flows best when it flows freely
and it is in giving that we receive the greatest gift.

May you always have music and laughter
and may a rainbow follow every storm.
May gladness wash away every disappointment.

May joy dissolve every sorrow and my love ease every pain.
May every wound bring wisdom and every trial bring triumph
and with each passing day may you live
more abundantly than the day before.

May you be blessed
And may others be blessed by you.
This is my heartfelt wish for you.

May you be blessed.
