I have a minister friend who begins a lot of services with "Everything's a mess and all is well." These two realities are both true. On the human level, we can experience a lot of messiness. Look at what's happening in Ukraine. What a tragic mess! And yet, anyone who has touched their divine nature, knows that at the divine level, we experience wholeness. As embodied divine human beings, it's complicated because we experience both realities: the daily messes of human emotions, opinions, actions, and relationships and the inner knowing of total and perfect Love, Joy, and Peace. We exist on all levels at once and holding it all in our human awareness at once: the suffering and the joy, can be tricky. I've found I just have to open my heart wider and wider and breathe into and through it all.

Last night, I heard the word "blessiness" as I was somehow able to practice the talk I'm giving tomorrow at Unity of Bellevue, while I was lucid dreaming. I was practicing the part of the talk where I discuss human messiness alongside divine wholeness and the word "blessiness" popped in. We bless the mess in all of the learnings and opportunities it affords for more compassionate understanding of ourselves and others and acting from that place of heightened awareness. And we transmute the mess into divine blessing, knowing that our greater good is always unfolding. The universe has our back and ultimately all is well.

How does your spiritual or energy practice help you with blessiness?
