As a teacher of JOY, I am often sharing ways with others on how to shift their frequency to a more JOYful place.
One of the ways, is by using memories. Memories, just like thoughts, can be tools. Tools can empower us or dis-empower us. An example that I often use is that a hammer can build a home or destroy a home.
It is the same thing with our thoughts and memories. We can use them as catalysts for JOY or we can reflect on the pain or loss and then we continue to suffer. And I am not talking about grieving here. Grieving is important and is personal and different for everyone.
I am talking about life and how it continues to change and evolve.
We can smile for the experiences we have had or for the memories and we can CHOOSE which ones we focus on and give our attention too. Why not consciously decide and choose that you will recall the ones that make you the happiest?
I know it is not always easy, but the more we can become an active participant in deciding what thoughts or memories we allow to run through our mind, the more control we have of our frequency.
And I don’t know about you, but I much prefer happy thoughts, memories and more JOY! And this is not to say that I have not had many, many painful experiences, I just choose which ones I give me energy and attention to. 🙂
I hope you too choose the ones that make you smile. 🙂
Just like the wind changes direction so can we. We can also learn to take direction…. from our SOUL! The soul knows. 🙂
If the lost traveler really needs only to slow down, pull out a map and take a moment to figure out where he is…. can those of us who’ve lost our direction in life do the same?”
The answer is Yes!
In our lives we all have mountains to climb, rivers to cross, and heavy weights to bear. And sometimes we fall back or slide backwards from where we want to be. And you know what? It’s okay. It’s normal in fact. It’s all good. So take a breath. Like the quote says “the lost traveler really needs only to slow down”….
And “pull out the map”….. Just get out your soul’s map and ask some questions of your higher self. But first relax and let yourself know that it is perfectly OK to be EXACTLY where you are. You are always loved because you are Love and you will return to Love.
As for the questions to help to get us back on our track? Here are a few examples to use after knowing it’s okay and it is just time to ask our soul for directions, just like we would if we were lost in a city. We would ask. Ask. Ask. Ask.
Is where I currently am JOYful to me or painful?
What baby steps can I take to change course?
What is one thing I can do to bring me a bit of JOY and move me away from this pain just for now, in this moment, in this day?
What baby steps can I take tomorrow to move me forward in a new direction?
What is one thing I can add into my life that would bring me closer to where I want to be? Is it a new friend? Is it more income? Is it a new pet? Is it a relationship I need to end? Is it an addiction I need help with? Is it a place I would like to travel to? Ask your Soul. It knows.
There are no limits to the questions you can ask your Soul. Start to learn to trust the answers. It’s simple really. Does the idea of the answer make you feel Good or Bad?Be sure to follow what feels good.
And don’t worry about the How’s of how it would come about, this exercise is about defining what you want and changing your course…..
Hey… why not even have fun with this? Why not? Life is way too serious. 🙂
We are amazing creators here on earth and we can design magical lives if we so choose. Yes we can!
In my coaching practice I am able to help people to identify what is important to them and to define and declare their hopes, dreams and their wants. And then we work with the tools in our tool kit to make this happen. Tools like working with our thoughts and our beliefs. Tools like putting our focus and attention on the things that we do want in our lives and taking the focus off of what we don’t want. And tools like telling new stories about what we believe, what we think, and about our life. All of these tools are super powerful and effective. And when we become personally empowered we feel soooooooooooooooooo gooooooooooooooooooood!
If you would like to have a complimentary conversation with me to see if Life Coaching might be something you would like to consider, feel free to reach out and we can set up a time to have a discovery chat. It would be my pleasure to serve you in this way.

I just love the shirts that my granddaughter (left) and my daughter (right) have on in this picture!
“CHOOSE and Be Happy!” Wow! I think these shirts are awesome. One of my favorite resources that I both go to often and recommend to people often, is from Bonnie Ware’s Book about the top five regrets of the dying. You can see an article with reference to the top 5 regrets here: Article on Bonnie’s Wares Top Five Regrets of the Dying
With a new year coming, why not decide that 2019 is going to be the year you opt in for choosing happiness? We make choices in every second, every minute and every hour of our day. Choose Happiness I say! Life is so much easier and much more fun this way. Imagine waiting until your death bed or last breath to realize it was a CHOICE. Choose NOW! 🙂 And remember Happiness is like a muscle, the more you use it, the bigger it gets! And that’s a good thing. 🙂

Mindfulness is a state of being that allows one to both connect with and be present with self and the environment around them. It is a way of being centered or grounded and connected.
Think of mindfulness as a moment by moment connection to thoughts, feelings, perceptions, senses, and outside stimuli. This concept may sound stimulating but it is actually the opposite. Mindfulness allows us to detach from judgement or conditional thinking. It is more like becoming an observer; an observer of self and the things and experiences around us.
Mindfulness can be experienced in many ways. One way is through meditation. Meditation allows the stream of consciousness to flow and float on by as the observer (You), silently watches or listens. This is a fine example of mindfulness.
Another easy way to practice mindfulness is when walking. Purposely experience and be aware of each step you take. A great place to practice this is in a park or in the wilderness. Observe yourself planting your foot down each time you take a step. Feel the earth beneath you, listen to the sound the step makes, feel your foot connect to the earth, observe how the ground feels beneath your foot, and observe the overall experience.
One of my favorite mindfulness exercises is with food. Take a piece of chocolate for example. Everybody loves chocolate. Take a bite of chocolate and truly experience it. Feel the texture of the chocolate as it melts in your mouth, delight in the taste, savour the flavour, and connect with the experience one bite at a time. Mindful eating is a very healthy addition to one’s lifestyle as it lets the body appreciate and be thankful for the food, especially when it involves nutritious and life enhancing foods full like fruits and vegetables. When one connects to the energy of ‘live foods’ they provide even more life-giving energy and their benefits are increased.
One way that I use mindfulness is by reminding myself to slow down, watch my steps, and to not rush when I am going somewhere, especially in increment weather. One wrong move can have long term complications, so I remind myself often to move mindfully.
There are countless ways to practice mindfulness, but I will leave you with the most important thought, which is to have fun with it and en-JOY the practice of mindfulness.

Tonight I had a digital conversation with a coaching client and it brought up a very important topic, one that I think is important for all of us when we need to heal and move forward in life.
I will call my client Rose. We were discussing some pain around Rose and her feelings towards her departed mother. When Rose described to me the way her mother was in her actions, the behaviour that Rose found hurtful and negative, I asked Rose if she herself had ever behaved this way or could be seen this way. She responded with a “Yes”.
I then asked Rose to imagine her own child or children saying this about her 20 years from now. I then told her that she might feel like saying something like this in response “but you don’t understand why I felt like this, please don’t judge me, I need love actually”…
Rose was moved by this and started to shift the way she saw her mother. I also suggested she have compassion for her mother and to energetically hold her mother in her arms and tell her that she did not understand why she did or said the things she did that caused Rose pain, but that she would try to have compassion and understanding for her mother.
I suggested that Rose turn her loathing into love so that she, Rose, could release her own pain.
I also suggested to Rose that she see her Mom as a baby, a young girl, a woman her own age feeling the very inadequacies and pain that Rose herself now feels, and to see her mom as a vulnerable person rather than the mean person Rose saw from her own personalization of her mother that caused HER pain.
I also suggested to Rose that it is way easier to opt for anger and resentment than to Rise Above to Love, but Love will be what sets her free. Anger, blame and resentment are easy opt-ins for most people. I suggested to Rose that she had both the capacity and the space to rise above to love and that if her mother had felt love, understanding and felt supported in life, she would not have acted in the manner she had. People full of love do not hurt others. Hurt people hurt others.
Rose asked me if by shifting the way she saw her Mom did this mean she was she agreeing with what her mother did to her or how horribly she had treated her. I told her No and that she was meeting the situation with understanding at a higher level, and that she was having compassion for her mother. I asked Rose directly, if she really thought her mother would have behaved like that if she had felt good about herself, if she had felt loved and personally empowered. Rose answered “I guess not. I never thought about it like that”.
We concluded our conversation with Rose’s homework of holding her mother in her arms,in her mind, so that Rose could expand her own heart and include her Mom and herself, because what we give out we get back. I also reminded Rose that love can heal even after death and that if Rose wanted to heal and be free from pain, this would be of great benefit to her.
What about you? Who do you need to need to Rise Above to Love for? Maybe it’s a person or a situation. When you can expand your heart to shift the way you see the person or situation, and have compassion you will gain compassion and love for yourself too. Everyone wins here. 🙂

“All human life has its seasons and cycles, and no one’s personal chaos can be permanent. Winter, after all, gives way to spring and summer, though sometimes when branches stay dark and the earth cracks with ice, one thinks they will never come, that spring, and that summer, but they do, and always.: — Truman Capote.
Is this a hard time of year for you? Maybe you’ve lost a loved one or multiple loved ones or maybe you are alone, or you have had health issues, or this year has been very challenging for you. Whatever the case may be, remember that the sun always sets and better yet, it always rises again. There is always the HOPE of a new day, a new season and a new reason to keep the faith that things will get better.
Here are some ideas to help you shift your sadness, loneliness or pain.
When you are thinking of your loved ones that you have lost, why not try focusing on the beautiful and happy memories and ALLOW yourself to smile about them? They would want that. They would be saying, “Please, please, enjoy yourself, it’s my greatest wish for you!” Sometimes we think we are supposed to feel bad about them not being there and although it’s okay to miss them and grieve, it’s okay to have JOY from the memories that make our heart smile, and to en-JOY where we are now and who is in our lives now.
I too have suffered loss. By the age of 29, I had lost both parents and a soulmate in a 3 year time frame. Do I miss them? Yes, but I am also over-JOYED at the people in my life today, and even more empowered to make sure I make the most of the time that I have left. I have no time to waste and am grateful to be alive.
One of the best ways to rise out of our pain, is to give what you are looking for. If you are lonely maybe reach out to someone else and send a kind word, or make a phone call, or send a lovely message on social media to tell them that they are thought of at this time. What we give out, we truly get back tenfold! Give Love and you will get Love back. Give Kindness and you will get Kindness back. Give a helping hand and you will get a full heart. Be the love you seek and it shall seek you!.
I want to personally wish everyone reading this a Happy Holiday, or just a Happy Day today, whenever you are reading this. I wish for you more JOY, more LOVE and more LIFE!

“Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live”. Dorothy Thompson
What if you decided that 2019 is going to be the year to Love yourself more? By letting go of fear, we open the path to Love and Living and yes with Capitals! They are that important! 🙂
Fear is what holds us back and constricts us. Love expands and fear contracts. The fastest and easiest way to move through fear is to shine the light of love and this starts with us!!!
We can start to love ourselves more by being our own Lover. This includes, but is not limited to, saying kind things to ourselves, being gentle with ourselves, allowing time for rest, feeding our bodies with nutritious food, forgiving ourselves, consoling ourselves, and one that I would like to add in that I feel is important, is by empowering ourselves. And we empower ourselves by doing all of those things just mentioned and more.
When we feel personally empowered we feel stronger and more capable of loving ourselves. True personal power comes from within. This means that WE have the capability to ramp up this personal power and that in itself is truly empowering!
I hope each and everyone of you reading this whether today, or in the future, claims and grasps your birthright, your entitlement which includes personal empowerment and self-love to ramp up your divine beauty so that 2019 and beyond can be the life that is better than your wildest and craziest dreams! Hold your own hand. Be your own Lover and a Lover of Life! It’s yours for the taking.

Yesterday I bought these organic grapes and by the looks of them, they need to be eaten soon. I love all the stages of ripeness to fruit, each one offering their different delights and benefits.
What really made me smile about these grapes, is the shining one. I thought it was so awesome and a great example of something we can apply to our own unique selves. This grape was lit up by the sun and I am so in love with the sun lately. The more I connect with that thought, the more I know at a deep level, how healing the sun is for us and how it can infuse healing properties into plants!
We too can be lit up and let our lights shine! We can too be our unique selves, in different stages of life and life’s challenges and glories. No matter where we are at it life, we have the opportunity to rise again and let our internal lights shine. Can you see how beautiful that shining grape is? That is you in all your glory, shining from within.
How do we do this? We do it through self-acceptance, self-forgiveness, self-love, intention, and by believing that we are truly capable of letting that inner light out for the world to see. If you need to forgive yourself for something, do it! If you need to treat yourself more kind, do it! Do whatever you need to do to transition to this ‘lighter’ place.
Today I encourage you to let the world see your light, even if it is one shining beam at a time until you can light up your entire being. Keep the vision of this grape in your mind and know that by allowing your inner light to shine, you too can light up your soul and shine on, allowing the entire world to see your divine essence and beauty!
Maggie Holbik.com is a Certified Life Coach and Board Certified Nutritionist who likes to let her light shine, but understands that true light can only come from the dark, so she believes all experiences offer the chance for inner growth and the opportunity to rise again in light and love. Compassion, Kindness and Forgiveness, are three Blessings we can offer ourselves and the world.
