Reviewed by Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite Powerful, evocative, and permeated with spiritual energy, 365 Blessings to Heal Myself and the World: Really Living One's Spirituality in Everyday Life by Pierre Pradervand is a spiritual gem, a compendium of blessings for every single day of the year, each opening up a portal into the soul of humanity, a fresh view of divinity, each an immersion into the gentle love that creates, heals, nourishes, and empowers us and the world around us. This book is the perfect tool that helps readers create a new consciousness of wellness and it is incredible in that it reminds readers of their power to utter blessings upon themselves and upon the world. It opens with a powerful blessing, one that speaks to me in a special way: “I bless myself sincerely and joyfully for being the utterly beautiful divine creature I am, at one with the Source of infinite Love.” Here is a blessing that reminds us of the beauty of who we are. While the blessings in this book allow us to speak healing and love into our human experience, they remind us of the power to transform life by developing an attitude that is God-like. In a world broken by evil, hatred and negative energy, Pierre Pradervand's writing reminds us that we are bigger than our pain, that we can transcend the darkness of our human frailty and rediscover the light of hope, that we can change perspective by communicating something positive in every day we live.

It will uplift you for the day and inspire you to new heights. A wonderful book that I highly recommend. This body of work was done with love and attention to every blessing a reader may need. A very touching book . ~ Lori Reed, NetGalley
Possibly one of the most beautiful books to use to heal not only your life but others. This is the perfect way to start or end each day. My way is to pick up the book and simply let it fall open on any page, because in my opinion, what you find when the book falls open like this is what you need to enrich your life at that moment in time. Obviously, we each have our own methods to absorb books especially those we use to enrich our lives. Yours might be to start on Day 1 and work your way through each day until you reach Day 365. Pierre Pradervand has a fascinating story to tell of how this book came to be written. His story resonated with me and now, thanks to not only reading about his life but absorbing these blessing have helped me find peace within myself for past hurts and as I work through the days, it will become easier. What convinced me that the book could benefit me is that Pierre Pradervand has included blessings from all religions. For me, some of the most powerful come from the North American Indians and I offer a very special blessing that not all the knowledge of this very deeply spiritual nation was not wiped out when other humans moved to the continent. You will not regret owning a copy of this book. Hopefully, like me, you will find daily peace while working your way through the 365 blessings. ~ Imbali, Breakaway Reviewers
I love the idea of blessing everyday. This book is filled with blessings for everyday of the year. It is beautifully written.

Reading this book can change your perspective, and a change of perspective can change your life. After reading this book, you may think differently about nurses, about the people you work with, about people you disagree with, about religions—all in a good way. This book opens up thought and allows space for healing. And who doesn’t need more space and healing? I love this book and am so grateful to have found it. The message can change lives. And it is simple and doable—bless instead of curse. And by blessing others, we feel blessed. ~ Cliff Foerster, BibleWise: https://www.biblewise.com/living/books/365-blessings.php
Today I have found the inspiration I have needed to continue with my own life's desire and continual commitment to live and be love through finding this web site. I have been on my path 28 years or so, have sat in the company of many of the world's wonderful life changing teachers, I've read hundreds books, and I write my thoughts, experiences, and questions regularly. My meditation practice is called Open Heart-gentle recognition and smiling in the direction of the heart, in acknowledgement of the gift that it is. Thank you all so much for your work in bringing love to light. I saw The Blessing Of An Unending Love in the latest issue of Kindred Spirit Magazine-I am a Contributing Writer for them. I am deeply touched by what I have read and felt compelled to send a message of thanks directly to Pierre. In Deepest Gratitude ~ Ellie Blair, Contributing Writer, Kindred Spirit Magazine
I'm relishing your pages for so many reasons. Because you've included blessings for specific groups of people -nurses, homeless, politicians, etc. It stirs awareness and care. It draws us closer together and widens the circle of compassion. It includes not only blessings composed by you but also some that come from other individuals and cultural groups provides a variety of voices that enliven the book and encourage me with the idea that the practice of blessing is coming from many corners. That is mighty comforting. The intros you provide for each blessing orient and guide in ways that shed light on the blessings without thwarting a reader's own creative interpretation and application. The instances where you link the blessor to the blessee bring the practice full circle, reminding us how we are all inextricably intertwined, that we find our own in another's good, that "what blesses one blesses all." ~ Bunny McBride, author of By The Light of the Moon
An incredibly diverse and helpful compendium of blessings that lift up justice. To bless means to wish, unconditionally, total, unrestricted good for others and events from the deepest chamber of your heart; it means to hallow, to hold in reverence, to behold with utter awe that which is always a gift from the Creator," writes Pierre Pradervand, a writer, speaker and workshop facilitator, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The author believes blessings have great transformative and healing power that is set in motion by pure intention and sincerity of heart. Another quality is necessary, and that is perseverance — the ability to not give up when the blessing path seems crooked or headed to a dead end. The sun may shine through a dark time in our lives because a friend sends us a blessing just when we need it most. The blessings here, some original and others collected from a wide variety of sources, are listed chronologically. Most helpful is the Alphabetical Topics Index at the end. ~ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat - www.spirituality and practice.com, Review
“The universal spirituality and practical wisdom packed into this amazing volume makes it a great gift. There is a deep spirituality and love evoked by this wonderful collection of blessings which appear to come from a formless universal Source - a Source to be found within the consciousness of each individual and in all spiritual traditions. However, you do not need to be part of any religion or spiritual path to be inspired by these pages. In many of the blessings there is an underlying message of shifting from head to heart to awaken the deep feeling of empathy and compassion – and in other cases of encouragement to fully embrace an integrated sense of self that embodies both head and heart. “This book is part of the movement of spiritual activism surfacing around the world. This is summarized in two lines from the blessing from Andrew Harvey on page 310: “Oh Beloved, May I not pray for the poor without working tirelessly to end the systems that thrive on poverty” …and… ”May I be saved from the subtle and lethal hypocrisy that would make me believe I love you when I risk nothing to make this love real in your world!” As I read the book, I felt that Pierre Pradervand has tapped into the same source as Aldus Huxley who defined the Perennial Tradition of recognizing universal truth from many cultures and traditions to help us all live in greater unity and oneness on our little planet. This book is a real jewel!” Ronald Radford. St Louis, MO ~ Ronald Radford, email
his book adds an ounce of love to your day! This is the third book of Pierre Pradervand’s that I have read, and as with the others, they are a great recipe to add more love into your life! Each day you can read a blessing for the various issues, like blessing teachers, raising world consciousness, overcoming alcoholism, being grateful, all kinds of things. It was great because I could just open it up and read what spoke to me that day. I also love the Native American blessings. Thank you for once again giving us the recipe to increase the love in our lives! ~ customer, Amazon
Love this book! This is a way to bless our world in so many different ways. I have enjoyed using this book and the blessings contained within it. I have multiple bookmarks marking some of my favorite ones to use. I decided to start using blessings to try and help bring more peace and unity to our world ~ Evelyn Rossin, Amazon
“This beautiful book can help you to realize that blessings are all around you, and even more importantly, that you are a blessing. ~ Frederick Burks, Executive Director, Public Education and Empowerment Resource Service (PEERS)

It is full of surprises and original insights which have the effect of changing your perspective on life, spiritual reality, the transformation of the world and your own power to be an agent of blessing.

Blessing is an art and practice desperately needed in our time. Pierre Pradervand’s exploration of blessing—personal, interpersonal, and transpersonal—is a cooling balm for an age bleeding from hot bombs. If you dare to live this book you will be changed on the first and perhaps transformed by the last day. ~ Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of Perennial Wisdom for the Spiritually Independent and The World Wisdom Bible.
read the Foreword and the Introduction yesterday. Then proceded to the first Blessing. Cannot describe what a profound difference it made during my whole day. Thank you! ~ Mary Perrodin, email
I rate 365 Blessings to Heal Myself and the World by Pierre Pradervand 4 out of 4 stars. “I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to make a difference by blessing people all around them and to benefit from the blessings themselves. You will be inspired to think and speak differently about people and situations that often make you angry or judgmental. This book inspired me to bless people all around me every day and to make a difference in my life as well as the world.” Full review in link: https://forums.onlinebookclub.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=114021 ~ Online Bookclub, Online Bookclub
Anyone working to heal personal, societal, world situations, no matter what religious or spiritual path they follow, will benefit immensely from Pierre’s compilation of blessings. There is so much that needs healing in our world, and this is a book that will touch many because it speaks to the heart and gently reminds us of our oneness with the Divine. ~ Fr. Richard Rohr, author and Founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, NM
If we are on an evolving path to realize everything is Consciousness we may well be on an evolving path to also understand that nothing in the world of the Heart is really impossible. These 365 daily challenges remind us of the sheer breadth of the worlds that can be brought into Love by The Gentle Art of Blessing. ~ Kurt Johnson, co-author The Coming Interspiritual Age
How radically different our world would be if more people used the power they have to bless others rather than engage in the vitriol that has come to define so much of our social discourse. Let this beautiful book by Pierre Pradervand help you cultivate the healing, transformative practice of offering blessing. ~ Rev. Diane Berke, Founder & Spiritual Director, One Spirit Learning Alliance https://www.onespiritinterfaith.org/
I couldn't stop reading. From one page to the next, it filled me with such love! What a total blessing it is! On every page you will know what it is to feel deeply blessed and to experience the power and beauty of this to lift you into a great light of love! Pierre Pradervand is a master teacher of the spiritual art of blessing! Your heart will be full! You will feel it! If all those who long for love would learn the art of blessing, it would end loneliness, sadness, and depression forever. And hearts everywhere would feel comforted and connected, lit with love! ~ Shannon Peck, Spiritual Life Coach, Author, Love Heals: How to Heal Everything with Love
