Blessing must arise from within your own mind. It is not something that comes from outside. When the positive qualities of your mind increase and the negativities decrease, that is what blessing means. The Tibetan word for blessing … means transforming into magnificent potential. Therefore, blessing refers to the development of virtuous qualities you did not previously have and the improvement of those good qualities you have already developed.

New Moon in Libra – The Spirit of the Sacred Warrior
with our truest expression. At an energetic level, we have been offered a clear invitation (often, through emotional
triggers) not only to confront our inner shadow but to embrace it, to invite our deepest pain to surface and allow its darkness to teach and guide us in order that we may learn to respond to life from a new integrative perspective. One step at a time, one experience at a time, we are being invited to let down our arms and allow our shadows to guide us toward the love and wholeness that lives within ourselves.
Continuing this theme, today’s New Moon in Libra offers us a powerful opportunity to further liberate ourselves from our shadows and our past. Energetically we are being invited to be guided by the natural flow of the universe in each moment, and to embody the spirit of the Sacred Warrior within — that unshakable, eternal part of ourselves that empowers us to confront the very things in ourselves that we instinctively want to run from, so that we may heal and transcend the limitations they create in our lives.
