Question: I’d like to work on creating blessings for specific people and situations. When you write your blessings, do you have a format or way to help you make them as clear and direct for the greatest benefit to the recipients?

Answer: Of all the 15 or so books I have published in a dozen languages, this one is the one that came most directly from the heart. Each blessing was written as the result of inspiration, coming from the heart and as a result of feeling deep compassion for the situation or person concerned and listening for the inspiration.  Compassion is the key word. All the rest I feel is secondary compared to that. Impossible for me to write a blessing just from the mind. It must flow from the heart.
