Transforming ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ…ถ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ† to โ“โ“„โ“‹โ’บ

Yesterday I got really, really, angry and I couldn’t stop myself!!!

It really does not matter what I was angry about but I will tell you that this blood boiling anger I felt came about over a simple thing as a phone charger! I had an issue with my daughter taking my rapid phone charger once again after we had had discussions about this the previous day, and it triggered a lot of anger in me.

As I mentioned it really does not matter the reason why I was angry because that is not the point of my writing today. I am not trying to build a case or prove I was right or that she was wrong. None of that matters… what matters is that this anger did not feel good for either of us.

My daughter cried a lot, I cried and was pained about her crying and was angry about my anger… go figure. See how this stuff starts to spiral deeper and deeper?

Anyhow, this morning, when I awoke and had the feelings and thoughts around this rush back into my morning consciousness, I knew I had to make a decision or to continue to suffer with this newly created pain and anger, or to somehow use this opportunity to transform and heal it.

How would I do this? Well I am currently reading Matt Kahn’s book “Whatever Arises Love That”, and I thought yes Love is the answer. I have to love this situation and to love my anger. This is what will transform this frequency and even turn this situation into the gift that it is!

Love My Anger?

What an opportunity I have! I have the opportunity to:

  1. Identify that I am alive and aware of my anger and of this situation
  2. Choose to take the opportunity to shift it all to a place of Love and a higher frequency
  3. To see the gift of this situation and to relish in my humanness
  4. To maybe help others with anger and other painful emotions by openly sharing my story and how I am working at transforming this situation this morning….

Okay whew. I’ve been openly honest here with myself and those reading my words. And now I can love myself back to love. I will do this by choosing to shift this situation right in the here and now. I choose to send love to my heart and to my daughter’s heart.

I choose to not ‘resist’ or ‘deny’ that this is or has happened. I had A LOT of anger and I displayed it, but now I will send love to the situation and “love what arose”. When I love what is, I displace the anger because they cannot co-exist.

Wow. Feeling better already. I will now go forth with a lighter and happier heart and I will project love around this entire experience and move forward in my day with a loving heart once again.

I hope that you found this as helpful as I did in writing it. And please remember you can replace the emotion of anger with any painful emotion and send love to it to help shift you from that feeling of ‘frustration’, ‘judgement’, ‘hatred’ (fill in the blank) and love โ™ฅ what arises, send love to it, to you, and release the hold that it has on you and in turn you will project MORE love out to the world too. By doing this we all infuse more love and loving kindness out into the world.

So even in our darkest moments, we can turn them into conduits of love and healing.

Much love to you today….

Why Do I Let My Light Shine?

Why do I let my light shine? And why should you let your beautiful light shine?

During my morning feeding of my soul, I contemplated this very question and was inspired through some work of Matt Kahn. I will share my thoughts here today.

Matt talks about giving and receiving and that giving is receiving and receiving is giving. I really resonate with that and I know this to be true. When I give to others I receive that which I give. If I show love to someone, I feel more loved and loving. If I give kindness to others and they receive it, I receive it too!

And then I started thinking about loving ourselves and about letting our glorious and beautiful souls, spirits and personalities out to shine for all the world to see. Matt talks about when we let ourselves shine we allow others to shine too! It really is win-win.

But then I thought, I work at shining to help me too. I try to shine so that I bring light to my own darkness, my own doubts, my own fears, and my own insecurities and struggles. To put it another way, I shine light to dissipate my personal pain and suffering.

I am learning from Matt’s work that the fear and the pain are divine too and this has helped me to better love what is and to move through it easier.

To sum it up this whole thought process of mine it is this:

If we let our lights shine, we heal ourselves from pain and suffering and we fill in the dark spaces with light and then in turn we shine and lead the way for others to also do this. We become a beacon of light and one by one we awaken this truth in others and then our lights radiate farther and wider and that very love and light is infused into the hearts of many.

If you are reading this today, please know that these words are infused with much divine and immense LOVE & LIGHT for you!

So do your part and let your light shine okay? You’ve got this!

With Much Love

“A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval”. Mark Twain

WHO is your biggest obstacle in your life?

WHO stops YOU from being YOU?

Is it YOU?

I think we are all guilty of this sometimes. The greatest freedom in life is the freedom to be who we are.

I was thinking this morning a kind of crazy but fun thought. What if we saw ourselves as a slow cooker or crock pot. Just get up ‘set it and forget it’. Meaning get up, be who we are exactly as we are, and off we go to en๐‰๐Ž๐˜ our day.

I love to write about these things so I can remind myself about concepts like this. Maggie, just be YOU.

I have found that the more ME I am, the easier my life has gotten. I am a work in progress. I take baby steps and I keep going. I forgive, I forget, I love, and I learn compassion as I go. I learn to be compassionate with myself and with others.

A baby taking a step ‘baby steps’

The more insecurities I have the more I am learning about humankind. WE are human. We make mistakes. We learn. We keep going. There is nowhere to ‘get to’ and as Ram Dass so eloquently stated “We are just walking each other home”.

So my friends, whatever you need today, I am sending. I am sending strength to those who need that. I am sending Love to you and to me! I am sending thoughts of beauty and encouragement. I am sending you encouragement to be YOU and to LOVE YOU! You are enough and you are AMAZING just as you are. And by the way, you look so beautiful just being all human like like you are. ๐Ÿ™‚

Whatever it is you need right now to feel stronger, supported and loved, know that these very words are infused with all of that and more……

Free Spirit, free will

(ใฃโ—”โ—กโ—”)ใฃ โ™ฅ FREE Will โ™ฅ (ใฃโ—”โ—กโ—”)ใฃ

I Lโ™ฅOโ™ฅVโ™ฅE FREE Will! Love, Love, Love it!

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way”. This was one of my mother’s favorite sayings and for good reason. She very much believed in the opportunities that life had to offer and in going for them. She was an encourager and a believer in people.

I don’t know about you, but as I age, I seem to have more profound wisdom when it comes to thoughts around things or concepts. And lately it has been around the words ‘FREE Will’. You will note that I keep putting the word FREE in capital letters. This is because I do indeed want to emphasize the word FREE!!!!

FREE Will means that we are FREE to choose things and thoughts are things so we can even choose our thoughts about things, people, places, events, and the list is endless.

I was inspired by words from Anita Moorjani on the concept of forgiveness and it reminded me of the power of FREE Will.

From Anita:

“Also, my NDE (Near Death Experience) taught me a lot about forgiveness and relating to others. In my NDE state I knew the love for myself was unconditional and that I was one with everybody. I also realised that if people hurt me or are rude to me I do not need to forgive them. There is nothing to forgive because when people hurt others they do it out of their own pain. Or if we perceive hurt when there was no intention of hurting us then we are perceiving hurt out of our own pain. If, however, I love myself unconditionally and remember we are all part of the same whole, then it is so easy to love others unconditionally because they are all part of the same whole too, and forgiving others is the same as forgiving myself. So, to sum up: if we live our lives from a place of total acceptance for self and unconditional love of self, it is easier to live in a place of unconditional love and acceptance of others.”

โ™ฅjโ™ฅoโ™ฅy แธถแนแนผแธ• โ™ฅjโ™ฅoโ™ฅy แธถแนแนผแธ• โ™ฅjโ™ฅoโ™ฅy แธถแนแนผแธ• โ™ฅjโ™ฅoโ™ฅy แธถแนแนผแธ• โ™ฅjโ™ฅoโ™ฅy แธถแนแนผแธ•

When I read Anita’s words it made me think that this too is FREE Will. We can choose to be hurt or offended or we can simply choose to NOT be. We have that FREE Will that costs us nothing to use it… it’s FREE! Wow. Eureka. I can choose to be in pain and suffer or I can choose to use my FREE Will and NOT be in pain and suffering. Don’t you just love it?

Even when it comes to witnessing the pain of the world, we can choose to be pained or angered or we can use our FREE Will and NOT be. Wowsa. I’m in love this!

So I guess it comes down to what kind of ride you want around this circuit called life? Like the old saying goes do you want to be happy or to be right? Do you want to feel pain and feel that you have been wronged or do you want to use your FREE Will and FREE yourself because YOU have the power to do it! WE have the power to do this by choosing and using our FREE Will. ๐Ÿ™‚

Living Fearlessly, mistakes

#lifeonpurpose #liveonpurpose

This morning a friend of mine made an engaging post in her FB group that went something like this “Where would you like to spend more time this Sunday?” And I answered: “Exactly where I am. I’ve purposely set my life up this way.” ๐Ÿ™‚

This got me thinking about how I am so glad that in my lifetime I have gotten very clear on what I have wanted and what brings me JOY and to go for that!

As a Life Coach I encourage people to do this. Many times, fear is what stops people and the list of ‘what ifs’ gets them every time. I encourage them to not worry about the what ifs and to get clear on the why nots?

This brings me to another thought around the fear of going after what you want in life. I do not believe in mistakes. I see everything as choices and after choosing if I feel that choice is not bringing me JOY or meeting the need of my desire, I can then re-choose. No mistakes, just experiences to learn from and to launch me on to the next adventure ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a link to a past post that I wrote around the topic of mistakes:

What about YOU?

I hope you take some time today to reflect on where you are in your life and are you happy there? Is there a goal that you have that you have put on the back burner or maybe even shelved permanently?

Ask yourself without excuses or what ifs, if this is still important to you and if the answer is YES then declare your desire of it, smile with JOY, and let the universe start to give you the prompts and show you the way. It always does.

It is our job to get clear on what we want. We don’t have to worry about the what ifs or the hows, our job is to declare and get clear and then watch the magic happen. ๐Ÿ™‚
