Thank you to all who joined me in an experiment: The Blesstival … sharing blessings into the collective via blog, website, Facebook … wherever you connect.
Together, we stirred the possibility of rippling out the energy and spirit of blessing from within us, to the field immediately around us, and beyond, then, into the wider shared energy and psychic field.
Here’s the roster of beautiful blessings to stir your inspiration or help you shift your energy and focus when you need to.

So you’re hosting a blog challenge? Tres cool! I want in, but will have to let you know about the actual date. I love the idea of sending out multiple blessings at this time out into the energetic web.
December 24, 2015 at 4:31 pm
Tres cool indeed, that you’re ‘in’ and will add your magic to build a Blessing Wave during that first potent month (and two new moons) of the new calendar year. The more the merrier, but as we know … where two or more are gathered. 🙂 Happy Christmas and Holy Days to you, Linda! xoxo Love, Jamie
December 24, 2015 at 4:33 pm
Same to you dear <3
December 23, 2015 at 9:43 pm

Such a lovely idea! I definitely want to participate, although I can’t wrap my head around a date right now….
December 24, 2015 at 4:29 pm
This is just the initial Blesstival post … to put it out there. I’ll be doing updates here and there along the way, so you can see which date or dates you’d like to include, Joanne.
Do feel free to spread the word through your blessing-inclined circle, too … the more, the merrier, and the greater the Blessing Wave!
Happy Christmas and Holy Days! Love, Jamie

Reblogged this on Well Wishers Group and commented:
Namaste Dear Well Wishers,
Here is a wonderful chance to share our natural inclination for wishing others well by joining Jamie, from her blog Sophia’s Children, in a Blog Blesstival – creating a blessing wave to start the New Year.
By choosing one of the dates from January 1st to February 22nd our wave of Blessings will be sent into the world.
Please read on for further details.
If this is the first time to visit Jamie’s blog, Sophia’s Children, your soul is in for a real blessing! Thanks Jamie!!!
Kind regards, and blessings always, all ways,
Sri Devi ॐ
December 29, 2015 at 4:13 pm
Thanks so much for rippling the Blesstival invitation into your circles, Sri Devi. Love, Jamie
January 1, 2016 at 12:46 am
Put me down for the 18th January, as that is when we are going to have a final farewell to my Mum and a really extended family reunion, even meeting family I’ve never met ever! As I’ll be dealing with nasty family members, it may be a good opportunity to find some resolve, put balm upon the family demons! Wish me luck and blessings!
January 2, 2016 at 4:29 pm
You’re on for January 18th, Bridget. And yes … much healing salve and juju, carried on a stream of grace, for healing and soothing the family demons! Lots of luck and blessing, grace and good-skill! xoxo and Happy 2016. Love, Jamie
January 1, 2016 at 5:14 pm
Let’s do it and see it.
January 4, 2016 at 7:57 pm
I would love to participate in the Blesstival! I will post as the spirit moves me.
January 5, 2016 at 2:59 pm
That sounds perfect … Spirit moves us just that way. 🙂 Just include a link back to the main Blesstivals page when you do ‘Blesstival’, and I’ll add it to the roster so others can enjoy it as well. xoxo and a Happy 2016! Jamie
January 5, 2016 at 7:48 pm
I’ll take january 7th if it is available. Just finished the draft.
Please advise 🙂
January 6, 2016 at 3:59 pm
Ever so fabulous, Linda. 🙂 Yes, I’ve got you on the Blesstival roster for January 7th. xoxo Love, Jamie
January 6, 2016 at 4:10 pm
yea! hope it does the job 🙂
January 6, 2016 at 4:23 pm
I’m sure it will! xoxo Love, Jamie
January 7, 2016 at 3:43 am
Great idea! May I have February 10?
January 7, 2016 at 4:36 pm
You may indeed — I’ve got you on the roster for February 10th, Joanna. 🙂 Happy 2016. xoxo Jamie
January 10, 2016 at 5:02 pm
I’d like to join in this blessing’s giving! #blessival. The date that I’m looking at posting on WP is January 14th. This has already been a wonderfully magical and sparkly New Year 2016 ~ I wanna share my delight through this constant inspiration and stupendous gratitude.
January 10, 2016 at 5:04 pm
Beautiful, Ka. I’ll add you to the Blesstival roster for January 14th. So glad to hear that the new calendar year is off to a wonderfully magical and sparkly start! May that magic+sparkle ripple out as a blessing to all who can be uplifted by a good dose of it. 🙂 xoxo Love, Jamie
January 12, 2016 at 2:12 am
Hi Jamie, I like the idea of sending waves of blessings around the world. I’ll create something to post on Jan 19th if possible, or the 20th or 26. Thanks, Brad
January 12, 2016 at 4:02 pm
Hey there, Brad! Happy 2016 to you. I’m delighted to have your blessing-magic added to the wave! And I’ve added you to the roster for January 19th (but feel free to take the 20th or 26th, too, if you’re feeling blessing-ful). xoxo Love, Jamie
January 12, 2016 at 4:12 pm
Thanks Jamie. I’ll go for the 19th. blessings!
January 12, 2016 at 4:30 pm
You’re on! I’ve added you for January 19th, Brad. xoxo Jamie
January 13, 2016 at 12:43 am
To spread blessings of love and kindness is a wonderful idea.
I am tempted to participate but time creates a obstacle for me.
The photo Love’s messenger would be appropriate for a Buddhist quote, “The Bird of Paradise lands on the hand that is not grasping.”
I like to participate in all good ideas but there is limit a limit to what I can fit in my day. _/\_
January 13, 2016 at 3:29 pm
Thank you, J. There are different ways people are participating … some behind the scenes (several readers have said they don’t have blogs or do FB, but are ‘rippling blessings’ intentionally behind the scenes). Others dive in when a space opens and just link to the Blesstival post. And a few opt onto the schedule.
Lovely Bird of Paradise quote. Perhaps I’ll share that with a photo I took at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens a few years back, and link back to your mention of it!
In the meanwhile, thanks for adding the blessing-frequency, however it moves through you!
January 13, 2016 at 8:38 pm
I came to your post Jamie via Sue Dreamwalker she has been spreading blessings selflessly. I participate in spreading blessings in a limited way as my personal computer can get a bit addictive.
That quote is one of my favourites. Be nice to see it used with your San Francisco photo. _/\_
January 14, 2016 at 5:05 pm
So lovely, Jack! I appreciate Sue’s blessings into the blog-o-sphere as well. And the Bird of Paradise is scheduled to post tomorrow, so you’ll see both quote and photo then. Blessings aplenty, Jamie
January 14, 2016 at 10:36 pm
This sounds great. I would like to participate. Could you put me down for the 20th, unless the 16th is still free by the time I write it?
January 15, 2016 at 4:11 pm
Greetings, Mary. Welcome to the Blesstival. The 16th is still available, though I’ll put you on the roster for the 20th, since the 16th is … tomorrow! When I see the ‘pingback’ from your post, I’ll link it from the original Blesstival page. xoxo and plentiful blessings to you and through you. Jamie
January 15, 2016 at 5:55 pm
I will have it by tomorrow if it is still open – Jan 16th. Thanks!
January 15, 2016 at 6:24 pm
You’re on for tomorrow the 16th then, Mary. Wonderful! Many thanks for adding your blessing mojo. xoxo Jamie
January 14, 2016 at 10:37 pm
Oh sorry – I didn’t say the month. January.
January 16, 2016 at 9:42 pm
I might have done this wrong. Do I need to put #Blesstival at the beginning of the title, or just in it? I was going by your Bird in Hand – #Blesstival. Did my pingback work? Just wanted to make sure. Thanks!
January 17, 2016 at 6:15 pm
Perfect, Mary (and I so appreciated the wonderful Nature photos and the Fox!). I saw the pingback and added you to the original blog roster, so others can find their way to your post via the Blesstival main page. xoxo Jamie
January 17, 2016 at 3:34 am
Hello, I found out about this Blessing blog wave via Mary’s site. here is my offereing http://spaceshipchina.com/2016/01/17/blessings-from-the-big-dipper/
but whoops – looks like I was suppossed to pick a date first!
January 17, 2016 at 6:09 pm
Welcome! It’s all good, Debbie – people can pick a date or just dive in as the Blessing Muse inspires them. Many thanks for adding your blessing-medicine to the Blessing Wave! I’ll add your Blesstival post to the Blesstival main page (you’ll see the ‘ping back’ in your own blog comment section). Feel free to add one whenever you feel the spirit move you (can’t have too many blessings, yes?).
xoxo Love, Jamie
January 18, 2016 at 12:28 pm
never can have enough blessings, i might just do more! 🙂
January 18, 2016 at 4:39 pm
I’m with you on that one, Debbie. An abundance of blessings can only help. 🙂 Do feel free to stir in a few more. xoxo Love, Jamie
January 17, 2016 at 6:22 pm
Reblogged this on Sophia's Children and commented:
Thanks to Sylvia (multiple times), Linda at LiteBeing, Sue Dreamwalker, Ka@FiestraEstrella, Jack@Jackspottings, Mary@Walking MyMyPath, Debbie@Spaceships China for adding #Blesstival blog posts so far to the Blessing Wave.
Thanks, too, those of you who are on the roster for upcoming Blessing Waves … Louellyn, Bridget, Brad, Maddie (times 2!), Sylvia (you go, Blesstival Queen!), Sri Devi, Joanna, and … you?
I’ll add your Blesstival post link to the Blesstival main page as I see the ‘ping back’.
And many thanks to those of you who have shared ‘behind the scenes’ blessings and Blesstival-wave support … it all ripples into the shared field.
You’ll find the recent additions so far on the Blesstivals main page … a growing sea of beautiful blessings in word, image, and spirit.
January 17, 2016 at 9:28 pm

January 20, 2016 at 5:04 pm
Greetings and welcome, Ann. You’re welcome, and I’m glad to meet you and very glad you’ll be adding your own magick to the Blessing Wave. I’ve added you to the Blesstival main page calendar for the 24th of January and the 17th of February. And really, really exciting that it’ll be your first blog post. I really appreciated the Ancient Conversations name and that exquisite starry sky photo you chose for the graphic header. I’ll look forward to reading your musings. Blessings, Jamie
January 19, 2016 at 1:26 pm
Thank you for setting this in motion! Here’s my first post as of today. I hope to do a few more before February 22nd. 🙂

January 20, 2016 at 7:01 pm
Such a beautiful invitation Jamie, and such a lovely intention to gather and spread blessings.
January 22, 2016 at 8:49 pm
HI, Jamie! I finally managed to get a draft of my post together. May I have Tuesday, January 26th?
January 23, 2016 at 5:31 pm
Hey there, Joanne! Delighted to put you on the Blesstival roster for January 26th. You’ll see the ‘add’ on the Blesstival main page here: http://sophias-children.com/2015/12/23/blog-blesstival-add-your-blessing-to-start-the-new-year/.

January 25, 2016 at 11:24 pm
Can you put me for Feb. 11th? That was my late Father Edward G. Palmer’s Birthday. Here is my entry: http://dancingpalmtrees.com/2016/01/24/blizzard-blessings/
January 26, 2016 at 6:24 pm
Welcome, Deborah. I’ve got you on the Blesstival main page roster in the February 11th slot (you’ll already see the ‘ping back’ from WordPress). A very lovely homage to your father to post it for his birthday. Blessings to you, Jamie
January 27, 2016 at 12:51 pm
A fellow blogger referred me to your site and I would love to take part in this. I love this idea. I can do any day that there is room, or a few days. Just let me know what the process is and how I can participate. Thanks
January 27, 2016 at 5:35 pm
Greetings, Sarah-Ann. And welcome. Yes, absolutely do jump in and add your blessing-mojo to the Blesstival wave.
Just have a look at the open dates from today onward, choose one or several as you wish, and let me know which dates you’d like (in a reply to this comment, for example. I’ll add you to the Blesstival roster for those dates.
Then when you do your blog articles with a link to the Blesstival page, I’ll get a WordPress ‘fyi’ and add a link for that day to your blog and Blesstival post. Make sense? 🙂
January 28, 2016 at 1:35 am
Thank you 🙂
Yes it does. How about Friday the 29th? I think it’s still open. Since it’s my birthday. And then I would like to do a couple in Feb the 14th & 18th.
January 28, 2016 at 7:07 pm
Yes, Sarah-Ann. I’ll put you on the roster for tomorrow, January 29th, and for February 14th and 18th. And a happy birthday (a day early) … we’re fellow Aquarians. 🙂 (I’m a February 2nd Aqua Sister). Wishing you a beautiful, joy-and-wellbeing-filled year ahead. xoxo Love, Jamie
January 29, 2016 at 11:17 pm

This is such a beautiful article, Mary Lou. Thanks so much for adding it to the Blesstival wave. The calligraphy artwork that you share and translate is very much in the blessing spirit, to be sure. Beautiful. xoxo Jamie
