The Best Gift Ever

Well it has taken me nearly a year to write this blog post but here I am. Last year I was given the best Christmas gift ever from my daughter Sivanna Rose. She spent countless hours in her room every night working on a project that turned out to be one of the nicest gifts I  have ever received.

She made me this box that had four sides and each with a saying that would melt any mother’s heart. One for example is “Mom, I know you’ve loved me as  long as i lived, but I’ve loved you my whole life. I love you”….. melt….

I will share them here for you to en-JOY as well.  I love the idea of the box too. Years ago I made myself a manifesting box and it truly has had magical results. You take your desires and put them in the box as though it were a magic box of creation and then you let it sit to do its magic… the results are astounding!

We can do this in our own mind of course and it is also effective, but by using a physical box it really makes things more tangible and believable. I no longer question any of this as I have seen the magic of it work every day in my life and continue to do so. I too hope you find the magic and belief to manifest your greatest wishes into reality as well. 🙂

The other thing I love, love, love about this box of beautiful sayings that Sivanna wrote, is that I know that she will not mind me sharing them here for all the world to see. Sivanna is confident in herself and in how she feels about others, and more importantly is not afraid to show her Love. To me, that is another great gift.

I will keep this box always and cherish it for the rest of my life, as I will both cherish and treasure my beautiful daughter Sivanna Rose.

“Love at first sight because I’ve been loving my mother since I opened my eyes”.

“Mom, I know you’ve loved me as long as I’ve lived but I’ve loved you my whole life. I love you.”

Amazing, Loving, Strong, Happy, Selfless, Graceful.

“Out of all that life has to offer, a loving mother is the greatest of them all.”

Gratitude, Joy

True Joy!

joy cardThis year, my spouse Don and I, and our daughter Sivanna, got together with Don’s kids, grandkids and their spouses, great grandkids, and Joyce, the beautiful mother, grandmother, and great grandmother of all of these beautiful people, for an early Christmas celebration.

I feel very grateful to be a part of this extended family and thought I would take a minute to write about my JOY. This card from Don’s two sons and their families sums it up quite well. “Christmas is about believing in miracles and being a blessing, reviving our spirits and celebrating our JOY… Christmas is about remembering all the wonderful things in life, like the people who mean so much to us, people like you.”

 

I thought this was a beautiful card with a beautiful message and it will be treasured. I must mention that they also got us a great present that made me jump for JOY!

A kajak for our new place on the lake. I was so excited about this. 🙂 I can see so much JOY to be had by all as we use this and enjoy the beauty of nature and our beautiful surroundings.

I encourage  all of us to read the words from this greeting card and to believe in Miracles, to be a Blessing and revive our spirits now and always. How do we do this? We do this by celebrating our JOY and by counting our blessings and that includes the people in our lives that Love us and that we Love back. Thank you to our beautiful family for the blessing of being together and celebrating our JOY together this holiday season.

My Gratitude Prayer

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Megan Beattie

Thank you. Know matter how you say these two words or in what context, they truly are the most powerful energetically charged shifting words in the universe.

The art of being thankful and having gratitude can do more for the human spirit than any outside stimulus can provide. The people who have learned to leverage the power of gratitude know, that it is tremendously powerful for bringing peace and comfort to one’s soul.  Whether one is counting their blessings, thanking someone in their life, or simply being grateful for life itself, the benefits of gratitude are great!

Studies have shown that grateful  people experience improved immunity, better sleep, and lower blood pressure!  They are also better able to participate in relationships and are more compassionate for self as well.

One of my favorite prayers that I use myself and teach to my clients to help with difficult situations is this one:

“Thank you God/Universe/Whatever You Want to Call it… for already solving this problem for me.” And then you detach and let it go. This prayer is very powerful and I cannot remember the source or where I got it, but I am eternally grateful for it and it has been instrumental in my life.

I am grateful today for this moment, for the fact that I am inspired to write this blog post, and for all of you reading it. I hope you find peace in gratitude and that you practice it in your daily life.

What You Seeks Seeks YOU!

I was having a text messaging conversation with a coaching client this morning and the topic of being grateful came up. I thought voila, here is my blog post for today.

Many of us struggle with making the shift from ‘waiting for the axe to fall’, which tricks us into not being in a state of grace and gratitude, to fulling embracing the gift of having and being in gratitude and grace.

Gratitude is a state of being, an energetic force that has enormous potential. I thought I would share what my client said to me and what I shared back because I am sure that we can all relate to this, either now or at some point in our lives.

Client: “Yah it’s deeply tied into disappointment for me and not getting what I want. Don’t think about it, acknowledge it, or dream about it and then you’ll never get hurt”.

Me: “Ya, that’s one of the classic self-sabotages of all time, the old waiting for the axe to fall 😊

Our conversation went on and I shared about ways, like this, that we give our power away to outside sources and this is definitely one of them. I reminded my client that what we seek, seeks us and what we love, loves us. Gratitude is just like that. Being grateful puts that attracting/seeking/aligning energy out there so that we can attract more of what we desire. When we love our life it can truly loves us back and bring us more of that which we love! 😊 This is so exciting and the awesome thing is there is always, always, something to be grateful for. Gratitude is a like a muscle, the more we use it, the easier it gets and the bigger it gets. Bring on the GRATITUDE muscle!!

I am sitting here in Hawaii, typing this, the sun is shining on my face, the wind is gently blowing and toying with my hair, and as I look up I see Diamond Head. Diamond Head Crater is an absolutely beautiful site on the island of Oahu. It sits majestically above the shores of Waikiki, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and is a destination for many who visit the island and those who live there as well.

Now you might say that sure it’s easy for you Maggie you are in Hawaii and I am wherever you are today at work, I’m sick, I got a flat tire today, or what have you. Yes, I am in a beautiful spot right now making gratitude flow extra easy today, however, I am also finding gratitude in the simple things like the pillow I found to put under my laptop, the lemon I found at the ABC store around the corner, for my warm lemon water, the fact that there are ABC stores on every corner lol, that I am inspired to write this morning, and on and on it goes. There are so many things we can find to be grateful for and when we do, it shifts our frequency to a state of appreciation and love. With appreciation and love comes kindness to oneself and the world, so if nothing else do it for the team. 😊

“Love is the way I walk in gratitude”. A Course in Miracles
