Sunflower Power

Two Sunflowers Facing Each Other

Want to know something fascinating?

I don’t know if this is true or not, but I believe it is! I saw something on Facebook the other day talking about sunflowers. They were saying that the sunflowers reach for the sun but when it is cloudy often they will turn toward each other and this is how the ‘get their energy’…. from each other instead of the sun.

WOW! This made me think of us as human beings. When we are feeling good and empowered we are strong enough to stand on our own. But when we are struggling we need to reach out to others to help support us.

And we too get revived and healed from the sun’s beautiful healing energy.

I sure look at sunflowers differently now. I have a whole new respect for them. 🙂 EnJOY your Saturday everyone.

Peace, Peace of Mind, Wayne Dyer

A Peaceful Life….

Lately it has come to me that the greatest gift one can have in life, is peace of mind. I meet so many people throughout my life and work that share with me about their anxiety, their endless thoughts and worry.

To put your head down at night and feel content is the greatest feeling in the world.

And then waking up excited for a new day… glorious!

I believe Peace is something we all would like at our deepest core level. We come from Love ❤ and we return to Love, ❤ but sometimes unfortunately we get lost along the way. Life’s stressors, relationships, health challenges, addictions, and the way of the world, can all interfere with our peace of mind.

This morning I was reading from Wayne Dyer’s Book ” Secrets for Success and Inner Peace” and I found this:

Suppose you had a choice between two magic wands. With Wand A, you can have any physical thing you desire by simply waving it. With Wand B, you can have a sense of peace for the rest of your life regardless of what circumstances arise. Which would you pick? A guarantee of stuff, or inner peace for the remainder of your life? If you opt for peace, then you already have Wand B. Simply have a mind that is open to everything but attached to nothing. Let it all come and go as it will. EnJOY it all, but never make your happiness or success dependent on an attachment to any thing, any place, and particularly, any person.

Love & Manifesting

As an entrepreneur who works and plays from anywhere, I like to make my environment condusive to my work and that includes making me feel good wherever I am working.

Today while working at my city home, I thought I would light this candle and then I decided to put out this little love plaque. It is pretty to look at and gives me good vibes. ❤

I have personally tapped into the power of operating from the frequency of Love and using it to create worlds, to put it simply. LOL…. simply!

But seriously, we are created from Love and we return to Love, so yes worlds are created through the power of Love. It is the force behind everything and when it comes to manifesting, it is super powerful.

I ran across this quote from one of my most favorite authors Anita Moorjani. Anita had a near death experience and came back very enlightened. Here is the quote from her book that I refer to today:

“When I was in the other realm, where the layers upon layers of my values and beliefs were stripped away and I was left facing the truth of who I am at my core, I learned that two primary forces—ⱠØVɆ ₳₦Đ ₣Ɇ₳Ɽ—had been driving all my behaviors. One or the other of these two forces was behind every single action I ever took, and I could clearly see that I’d in fact spent most of my life being driven by fear, not love. I understood with a sudden stunning clarity that to transform my life, whatever I said or did from that point on would need to come from a place of [̲̅l̲̅][̲̅o̲̅][̲̅v̲̅][̲̅e̲̅] instead of fear.”
― Anita Moorjani, What If This Is Heaven?: How Our Cultural Myths Prevent Us from Experiencing Heaven on Earth

Now back to Love and Manifesting. When we are in the highest of high of vibes aka Love, it is very easy to manifest amazing things. I know this to be true. I witness it often in my own life. When I am in fear and strife, guess what I get more of? Fear, strife and icky things. But when I am in Love and I feel empowered, guess what I get more of? Amazing, rock star, holy hannah awesome stuff. It’s like the universal red carpet rolls out and produces magic!!!!

How do we get to this place of vibing in the Love frequency. We become Love. We show kindness to self and others. We help strangers. We smile at people and we smile more. We share inspiration with others. We offer hope.

There are countless ways to raise your vibe and I have written about them often. Her is a link to a prior blog post on shifting away from the worry train and fear and hopping aboard the Peace train. You may find it helpful. It helped me just to reread it again! If you want to know a secret, a lot of this stuff I write, I write for me too! I too struggle so my own writings and declarations help me too! I am so selfish aren’t I? Lol

Here is another one you might find useful:

I hope you find this post and links helpful to increase your JOY and Love frequencies. Remember it’s like a ladder… you climb the frequency ladder one rung at a time so be sure to do little things that make your soul happy and watch what happens…. very powerful!

Kindness Quotes Just Because

I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to my fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

Stephen Grellet

Men are only as great as they are kind

Elbert Hubbard

“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”

manifestation

Fall Focus For Manifesting

This afternoon I have been working on my September newsletter and I am in the vibe of focusing on new goals and starting new projects and such. This always leads me to the topic of manifesting and attracting what we want in life to us. I opened my email to the perfect quote about this….. it was perfectly attracted to me today 🙂 lol

Here it is from Esther Hicks:

If we were standing in your physical shoes we would not merely observe what others are doing and use that as a basis for our own attraction. We would focus deliberately on things that we want to attract into our experience. And then, we would sit on the front row of our own creation, witnessing the results of the climate that we have deliberately prepared.

Excerpted from North Los Angeles, CA on 2/22/14

Our Love,
Esther
(and Abraham and Jerry)

I thought this was a perfect reminder! We must always remember to focus on what we want and see and feel ourselves already having it or experiencing it. The more I practice and use the universal laws like The Law of Attraction, the easier and speedier the manifestation occurs in my life.

I am also of the mindset that the more we can be in a frequency of Love and empowerment rather than in a survival frequency, or just getting through, the easier manifestation and wonderful creations happen in our lives. Love is the sweet spot in the scale of frequency and is where the magic truly happens.

Love is free. Love is expansive. Love is abundant and always open to more.

I hope you too take a look at using this time of the year to reset your manifestation goals and to work on your dreams. They are hugely important and there is no better project to work on than your dreams.

compassion, kindness, self-love

Compassion For Self

A moment of self-compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life.

christopher k. germer

Yesterday, while thrift store shopping, I was lucky enough to pick up a copy of Brene Brown’s book “The Gifts of Imperfection” Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are.

Although I haven’t read it yet, I have been skimming some of the pages and it is definitely resonating with me. I am reminded once again that we are not in this alone. We all suffer from the same things, self-doubt, insecurities, fear, lack of self-confidence and more. We are NOT alone! You, me and the stranger across the road, we’ve all been here or are here right now.

I write about self-love and compassion often and it seems for good reason. We can be so hard on ourselves. As I write this, I am glancing over at my cat Bella, curled up in a chair and I realize that when I look at Bella so cute like that, I instantly feel this emotion that I would call compassion. Why? I am not sure. I don’t need to be compassionate to her or for her but for some reason that emotion comes to mind. It makes me think that we all have compassion in us but being compassionate to ourselves often seems so challenging.

In my quest of getting a better understanding of compassion I found these synonyms:

pity, sympathy, feeling, fellow feeling, empathy, understanding, care, concern, solicitude, solicitousness, sensitivity, tender-heartedness, soft-heartedness, warm-heartedness, warmth, love, brotherly love, tenderness, gentleness, mercy, mercifulness, leniency, lenience, tolerance,  consideration, kindness, humanity, humaneness, kind-heartedness, charity, benevolence

The two that jumped out at me the most, were soft-heartedness and warm-heartedness. Yes this is what I feel when I look at Bella all cuddled up over on that chair. My heart is warm and melting and I just want to go over there and kiss her or cuddle her.

What if we could look in the mirror and feel that way about ourselves? Would it have an impact? I think it would. And I think if we felt that way towards ourselves we would open up our capacity to feel these tender feelings toward others and then the whole world benefits just like the starfish story, one starfish at a time. 🙂

I hope you take the time to practice compassion and self-love for yourself today and always. I am going to start right away. Just writing this post has helped me to see the gift in compassion and to feel it’s power to shift and to heal. Will you join me? I would love to hear also what synonyms for compassion resonated with you or jumped out at you? 🙂

Wishing you a day full of JOY and Compassion……

With Love,

Maggie

compassion, Gentleness, kindness

Hard Times….

It has been awhile since I have made a blog post. I just haven’t been inspired but now I realize that it’s all ok and that blogging involves sharing through the highs and lows of life.

There seems to be so much sadness around lately and so many people going through extremely trying times… all the cycles of life and of life and death.

Yesterday we lost a very precious woman who was close to my heart, Pam Bowling, Pam was a mentor to me in business, a business partner and a friend. She was an amazing lady and I will honor her memory always. Pam was very much an entrepreneur like myself. Pam held me in the light always and encouraged me and my entire team onto success and I am forever grateful for that. In memory of Pam I will continue to forge ahead and to also help others on their journeys of creating and designing lives that bring them freedom….. to love, to grow, to inspire, to dream and to create lives that allow them to make the most of their time here on earth.

Pam was beautiful inside and out and if you knew her, you loved her!

While contemplating all of the heavy hearts and toil I see and feel going on around me, the only word that keeps coming to mind is “kindness”. Kindness, Kindness, Kindness. We need to be kind to each other, we need to be kind to ourselves and to be gentle with ourselves and others.

Kindness is that part of love that reaches out and offers support in times of need. Kindness is the thread of hope that bridges the gaps between pain and suffering. Kindness is the glue that helps to heal the holes created by loss. Kindness is a gift……

The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose.

If you are reading this and need support or comfort, please know that love and kindness are sent your way today.

And to Pam…. I know you are now an angel for many of us and I feel you as the wind beneath my wings…..

beauty, Star Gazing, Sunsets

Take Your Breath Away!

“All this knowledge of the objective world is of no value in comparison to having a little glimpse of the inner sky and its beauty — its sunrises and sunsets, its days and nights, its blue sky and its stars. The outer then looks only a pale reflection of the inner. The inner becomes more real and the outer becomes just a shadow.” -Osho

This summer I have had the pleasure of witnessing many beautiful sunrises, sunsets and stars that took my breath away.

For me, every time I gaze up at the starry sky I am reminded that this is where I come from. I feel a part of the entire universe in that moment.

I have a goal of learning night photography so I can capture the beauty of what my naked eyes sees and also what a camera is able to capture and my eye is not.

So often in life we search outside of ourselves for things to make us happy and then one day many of us realize that the things that were always there are the ones that make us most happy, like a sunrise, sunset or the stars.

What about you? What takes your breath away? What takes you to that place of feeling one with all that is?

I hope you find these beautiful moments in your life too. And the cool thing is that the more you find them, the more they appear, which is awesome!

Earth Family

Heart shaped tree before space background

We are family!

A reading from the book “Mary’s Messages to the World” by Annie Kirkwood.

“The family is a microcosm of the world. We are all one family. We each need to be treated with respect, love and honor. Begin to see the world as your family. Every soul on this planet is a creation of One Great Creator. Every culture is honorable, every race is to to be honored as God’s creation, every nation is a brother, every religion is a sister. Look to the sameness of life on this planet. See that the same love is expressed in every member of every nation.”

*************************************************************

I could not help but share this paragraph from the this book. I thought it was a great message.

“I love you and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”

dreams, Passion, self-love

YOUR Dreams & Desires Matter! YOU Matter!

The thing you have to be prepared for is that other people don’t always dream your dream.

linda ronstadt

I ran across this quote from Linda Ronstadt this morning and thought it had a lot of depth to it.

The most important part is to realize that we all have dreams of some sort. Some of us have bigger ones than others, but everybody in life has dreams, hopes and desires. It is what fuels our soul and propels us forward.

Happy are those with big dreams that make them jump out of bed in the morning. 🙂 This is akin to thriving and not just surviving.

It is also important to note that as the quote states “other people don’t always dream your dreams”. This means we are all different but more significant is that it is important for us to take our own dreams seriously, because they are OURS! If you don’t make your dreams a priority, who will?

As a Life Coach, I teach this often. YES, your dreams ARE important. YES you matter! YES it is important to go after what you want in life if you want to leave this earth fulfilled and feeling that it was a JOYous journey. YES. YES. YES to making your dreams come true or at least going for them. The JOY is in the journey but if we never take the first step, the journey never begins.

I hope you seriously take some time today to ponder on what is important to you. What are some of your dreams? And it does not matter how old you are or where you are at in life. You can ALWAYS have dreams and desires. I saw a positive article the other day about a paramedic crew that took a forester who was in palliative care on a 3 hour hike through the bush on a stretcher so he could be there one last time. It is NEVER too late to have wishes and desires.

Some of the best dreams fulfilled are simple ones like eating at a favorite restaurant, visiting with a friend, spending time in nature, taking time to get lost in a book or a movie. These all count but the most important thing is to decide and declare that your dreams need to be on your mind and your agenda.

Dream big or dream small, but do dream……
