Guest post: An open blessing

It's been many months that I say and promise to start writing again, but I wasn't able to keep my promise. It's not the lack of time nor the laziness; it's not the lack of ideas or subjects to discuss nor it is a loss of interest in writing. It's just that my efforts to concentrate have been vain, however I tried.

On one of the very bad days, my wonderful friend Megan author of the blog I stop for suffering sent me this beautiful message that I wanted to share with you.

It's been almost a year that I'm following her Blog. It's a page created to spread love. I have shared so many of the posts on my wall on Facebook, as it always brings me comfort and peace.

Thank you Meg!

An open blessing

If you are having a rough time lately, and you are ready to give up;
Or if your spirits are down, and you are having trouble going on….
Just know that there is someone out there who is thinking about you, and loves you and wants you to be okay.
If all you want to do is to give up, or crawl into bed and hide under the cover,
 remember that you are not alone.
If I could be there with you today I would be.
I would hug you and tell you that it is going to be okay.
I would whisper it over and over until you believe it.
Because no matter how dark it seems right now, know that you will be okay.
I will help you find the strength to get through the dark days.

My heart goes out to all the people today who are suffering, and feeling grief, loss and pain.
When things seem dark and hopeless, please know that there are people who care about you, and want you to be okay.
There are people like me who sit on our meditation cushions, and send love and healing out into the universe.  For people like you.  For people who need it more than they can express.
Honour yourself and your feelings. Those that love the most, also feel the most pain. 
When faced with challenges, treat yourself gently.  Take one day at a time.  One hour at a time if needed.
Give yourself breathing space.  Nurture yourself. 
Spend time with books, music, movies and places that uplift, comfort, inspire and restore you.
You will learn and grow from the experience.  And you will come out the other side a stronger person.  With a greater empathy and capacity to help others.
And when you are feeling alone and sad…
Close your eyes, and tap into the energies of love and support in the universe. 
Trust in the comfort that you receive.
Breathe in life.
And don’t ever give up.
You’re in my thoughts and prayers.  You’re in my daily meditations. From my heart to yours, I’m sending love.
Blesssings, Meg
