We Are Strong & Adaptable

 â€œThe human capacity for burden is like bamboo- far more flexible than you’d ever believe at first glance.”
― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper

Let us always remember that we are stronger than we realize. Challenging times can also challenge us to rethink, to regroup and to adapt to what is currently happening and to the changes that we are experiencing.

We need to be like bamboo and be flexible in our thinking and in our resilience.

I have written about this in the past in my blog post titled “Be Like Bamboo”. Here is the link if you would like to enJOY that post. https://maggieholbik.blog/2017/06/14/be-like-bamboo/

I myself, just reread it, and it seems bang on for the times that we are in right now.

Take care everyone and stay strong but remember to be like bamboo. 🙂

Divine Signs, Don's Poems, love

♥ We Are One in All Of This â™¥

I am at the cottage or camp as we call it here in Northern Canada. Something happened to me twice today so I know that I was meant to share the message.

I ran across, in two different locations, something that resonated with me deeply

. 1) in my sock drawer and 2) in my camp journal, was this poem written by my Honey, Don in August of 2012. The words speak volumes to me at this time and I hope you enJOY them too!

Here it is:

Inspiration

When you are in spirit, you are in union with God.You become one with the forest as you sit on that log. Your mind transcends what you believe to be true. You see (っ◔◡◔)っonly ♥ Love ♥ in whatever you do. The sky becomes bluer and the stars more bright…❈❈❈ As you inhale nature in the middle of the night. All people become one as you Serve and you Trust…. There is no them because they all become US.

Don Perry August 25, 2012

𝘼 𝙂𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙬𝙖𝙮 𝙏𝙤 𝘼 𝙉𝙚𝙬 𝘿𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣 â˜…·.·´¯`·.·★

ɪɴ ᴏᴜʀ ʜᴏᴜꜱᴇ, ᴡᴇ ʜᴀᴅ ᴀ ᴘʀᴇᴛᴛʏ ɪɴᴛᴇʀᴇꜱᴛɪɴɢ ᴇxᴘᴇʀɪᴇɴᴄᴇ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ɪ ᴛᴀᴋᴇ ᴀꜱ ᴀ ꜱɪɢɴɪꜰɪᴄᴀɴᴛ ꜱɪɢɴ ᴡɪᴛʜ ᴀ ᴅᴇᴇᴘᴇʀ ᴍᴇᴀɴɪɴɢ.

In the middle of the night, a few days ago, we heard our daughter talking. She sleepwalks often, so we checked on her and she was standing on the bed in the middle of the bed pointing at the ceiling. She might have even been touching the ceiling. And she said “I see numbers on the ceiling 1 1 (pause) 11.”

She was asleep but her voice was very loud and she was touching the numbers 1, 1, .. 1, 1…

Now why I found this to be interesting is because it is said that 11:11 is a number that means
“𝐀 𝐆𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐰𝐚𝐲” to another dimension. Many people see this number often 11:11. I do believe at this critical time in history, we are indeed entering a new dimension.

During this COVID-19 pandemic, we are uniting together world wide like we have never done before. The earth is healing. We are reevaluating life as we know it. We are changing our entire view of everything and I truly believe we will emerge from this in a better place. I see it as a regrouping and an opening to a new way of being… a portal like 11:11 is referred to.

I also think that we are all opening our connection to a deeper dimension and to messages that have deep meaning for us, especially at this time. Like the one I posted about two days ago. If you have not read that one yet, here is the link:

Link to a Message That Stopped Me In My Tracks

https://maggieholbik.blog/2020/03/20/this-surprise-message-stopped-me-in-my-tracks/

I will close for now and I do hope you are all enJOYing this time of transition. There are so many people that I have spoken to or messaged recently that share with me that they are enjoying this time so much. Many are awakening passions and interests that have been laying dormant or put on the back burner. And they realize now that this is the time for them to let their creativity and their desires out to be actualized. So many people are getting clear on what is important to them and that is an awesome thing.

Take care everyone. Bye for now and there is much ♥ LOVE ♥ sent your way today!

This Surprise Message Stopped Me In My Tracks!

I am at the cottage and I went to my special box where I keep the ‘camp journal’ to make an entry.

We arrived here yesterday and are still trying to heat the place up. There is a lot of snow and this is the earliest we have ever come out here but this is a different time. Usually we don’t come out until sometime in May.

I knew that my camp journal entry today would be historic. Things are very different in the world right now.

♥ Back to the box. ♥ When I opened the box I found this, and it was like a special message from Anne Frank to us, right now when we need it most. I am tearing up writing this. Here was what I saw….

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy” Anne Frank

WOW. It literally took my breath away and I knew I had to share it with all of you.

I am so grateful for these words from Anne Frank. And if you know Anne Frank’s story you will know why these words are even more profound. If you do not, please take the time to Google her.

I hope you are grateful for these words from Anne, and that they bring you comfort and peace and this time.

Love to all!

Maggie

hope, Sweetness In Life

Bittersweet & Finding Sweetness at This Time in History…..

“I searched among her crayons for a color that represented autumn and pulled out an orange-toned crayon, never used. It read “Bittersweet,” and I wondered why that particular name. Autumn was my favorite time of year… I was always ready for the change. I guess some people didn’t see it that way. Some people wanted to cling to summer… I loved both seasons, but I thought no one would ever call spring bittersweet, even though it was just another change, another new cycle, an end to one season and a beginning for another in an endless, never-ending spiral.”
― Janet Rebhan,  

I ran across this quote today that reminded me of what we are going through in the world right now. It truly is Bittersweet. I know a lot of people are in fear right now but there is so much goodness happening too!

We are getting clearer on who we are and what is important. We are stepping up to the plate of humanity and serving others. We are learning to look through the eyes of Love for the entire world. We are all collectively thinking of new horizons that we will be so grateful for.

Just as the changes of the seasons throughout the year and the seasons of our life can be bittersweet, so is this time we are in.

I encourage you to look for the Sweet. As I typed this my daughter popped in to say hi to me and I looked at her sweet face and I knew what it all meant.

Sweet Sivanna Rose

Look for the sweetness. It is always there if you look.

I also this today in a Facebook Post that my friend Meredith Ann Deasley shared. Meredith is a Certified Life Coach, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Spiritual Vitality Expert!

This is what I saw and it Inspired me!

She shared her notes for the day and this is a snippet from them. I love it!

It says in regard to how she sees herself:

“The way I taught myself to turn every negative into a positive from a young age. (and people think I’m naive! hee hee) Meredith Ann Deasley

Well I have to say I loved that. I am seeing so much positive in all that is happening and I continue to do so. Of course I have compassion and empathy for others and I understand some people’s anxiety is running high, but I do think we can choose to see Goodness and Sweetness and I hope that you look for and enJOY the Sweetness too. It is even sweeter at times like this because we appreciate it more. 🙂

We Are Learning ♥ To Cherish Life ♥ And It’s a Good Thing

Things are certainly changing quickly, and life as we know it is regrouping right before our very eyes, and it is happening on a global scale.

It may sound strange to you, but the more that this is happening, the more I am getting feelings of well-being and knowing. I do feel there is a lot of good that will come out of these challenging times.

During this time of uncertainty, I think we are all starting to appreciate and see our lives differently. The word I have come up with is ♥ Cherish ♥ . We are starting to ♥ Cherish ♥ our lives in a whole new way.

I just got off the phone with someone near and dear to me, and she shared with me that while out walking yesterday, she looked up at the blue sky and just started to cry in appreciation of how beautiful the world really is. Her tears were not tears inspired by fear but rather from a place of appreciation and realization.

It seems that everything is becoming more cherished and that we are recognizing the gift in many things that we have taken for granted. For example, being able to access convenience products like toilet paper, being able to buy nourishing foods, being able to freely go where we want, to be able to travel anywhere in the world, being able to attend schooling, and many more. Sometimes we have to drag ourselves to the gym or to go for a walk and I am sure the day will soon come when we will be so grateful that we are once again able to go the gym without worry. I bet will run to get to the gym. 🙂

We will get through this and that day will come.

I for one, am cherishing the most simple things and appreciating them in a whole new way.

I really, really feel that there is a shift happening and what we are experiencing is all a part of regrouping or shifting of the planet to a place, that quite frankly, needs a good regrouping. A regrouping of the way that we are too dependent on consumerism, on how we treat out bodies and our planet, on how we treat each other, on how we waste so much, on how we take for granted so many things…….. and on and on.

I have been hearing and reading so many wonderful posts and comments from people who are taking this time to enJOY reconnecting with loved ones, reading books, reflecting on life and just making a challenging time better.

We always have a choice. I hope you choose to see the gifts that are now here and to uncover what it is that you cherish. I hope you will join me in holding the frequency of optimism. Together we create collective consciousness and consciousness creates…. let’s create HOPE, let’s see (っ◔◡◔) new and better HORIZONS, and let us all remember that the sun will rise again tomorrow and the next day and the next. We will get though this. Let us do so in LOVE.

Peace☮️ to all and Love to All! ◦•●◉✿ Ļᵒשє ✿◉●•◦

love, worry, Worry Less

Worry Less & 𝐿❤𝓋𝑒 ð‘€ðŸŒºð“‡ð‘’

“We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable.It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives”. ~Maya Angelou 

Anytime we are in fear we are not in the frequency of ‘Love’. Worry stems from fear. There are two emotions that all others emotions spring from and these are ‘Fear’ and ‘Love’.

Worry is from the side of FEAR and when we worry about others we project fear and worry onto them as well. Sometimes we worry about things that might happen and this also just causes unnecessary fearful thoughts.

Energy in Motion

The very BEST thing that we can do for ourselves or our loved ones, is to try our best to think thoughts of 𝐿💗𝓋𝑒 and well-being.🌞 And it is interesting to note that E-Motions are ˜”°•.˜”°• Energy In Motion. •°”˜.•°”˜ Energy in motion is a powerful force. We want that force to be positive and conducive.

Think about this for a minute and see if you agree with me. Was there a time or is there a time now when someone that cares about you has told you that they are or were worried about you? Or have they constantly nagged at you about something? How do you or did you feel?

Did you feel heavy, sad, or remorseful? I bet you felt some form of these fear based emotions.

The best thing we can do to support others is to do it through Love. It is okay to want the best for others but there are ways to support and offer to ‘hold space’ for someone that is better than worrying and thinking fearful thoughts.

I can remember the exact moments in my life when people have told me that they were worried about me and why. I loved these people dearly but at times these moments felt like sucker punches to my soul. I have also realized that I too have done this to others so even in writing this I am reminded to try harder to be more loving and supportive in my thinking and approaches when sharing concern.

Worry Breeds Worry

The very best thing we can do for anyone is to hold them in the light and to see them through the eyes of Love. Worry breeds worry and fear breeds fear. It is a fact. Let us choose Love and have Love attract more Love and Light and Healing.

I hope you have found this introspective or helpful and know that I send YOU, the reader, thoughts of 𝐿💙𝒱𝐸 and HOPE and Courage and whatever other positive thoughts that hold frequencies that stem from 𝐿💙𝒱𝐸 and are directed YOUR way. 🙂
