When you think of your business, what sort of thoughts are you thinking? Do you bless your business or do you curse it? “Of course I bless it,” I hear you thinking. But, do you? Do you consciously bless your business every day and whenever you think of it during the day?
Sometimes we get so bogged down in the daily operations of what we do that we don’t even realize we are not blessing our business. Worry does not bless. Being upset does not bless. Boredom does not bless. Unconscious busyness does not bless.
Take a few minutes at the beginning of your work day and consciously bless your business and every aspect of it. If you have a retail store, take a few moments to walk around, look at your stock, and send it blessings. If you are a counselor, healer, or bodyworker, take a few moments to look at the chair or table your clients use and bless them. Look at your own chair and desk and computer, phone, iPod – whatever items you use in your business, and bless them. If you advertise your business, take a few moments to bless your ads and ask that they attract the right people for you.
Ask that anyone who contacts your business be blessed, that happiness, joy, and prosperity flow to them and through them. Ask that you be led to provide the service you are here to give and that those who need what you have to offer will find you easily and effortlessly.
Taking a few moments to do this puts you in a balanced and receptive frame of mind and it shows your business that you are a willing partner in your own success.
If you’re in Seattle Wednesday, drop in and say hello when I’m at East West Bookshop – I’d love to see you!
Have a fabulous week!

Krysta Gibson is an author and speaker and the publisher and co-editor of New Spirit Journal. She has been on her spiritual path her entire life and brings an eclectic blend of experiences and ideas to her consulting work.
I am by profession, a Marketing Specialist and in particular a student of Enrollment. In other words I am a Watcher, who Listens, a Reader who takes notes and bookmarks notable websites and their authors. And I probably subscribe to far too many newsletters and feeds, but I do it, for it serves me, as it also impacts my productivity some days (grin…)…like today.
And the point is this research (I am always doing), allows me to serve my clients and colleagues, as I am on the look out for the trends that work, and the great wisdom circulating the ethers, the internet and the blogosphere.
Thanks to Facebook and a friendly common denominator I came to connect with Krysta Gibson and have the good fortune to commence a working relationship with the New Spirit Journal and The Washington Holistic Chamber of Commerce . Week after week Krysta Gibson offers thoughtful reflective and down right practical wisdom on business and the spiritual nature of business. I asked for permission to post her latest column, fresh in my Inbox and she graciously said yes, I’d be honored.
Why reinvent the wheel when making others aware that the wheel exists is a simple elegant solution? And being an advocate for great advice (for life at large and business) and sharing it with others is what I do as naturally as breathing. To pass along wisdom is fun and rewarding.
I took a moment to honor and bless my workspace and found a new energy to commence projects for the day. Thanks Krysta for the reminder of what is not always obvious and easily forgotten as it exists before your very eyes. I’ll take as many reminders as I am offered to reconnect with gratitude and presence while I am working in service to my clients.
