To me JOY, which is said to be a vibration higher than even LOVE ❤ , is LOVE ❤ expressing itself. That is how I see JOY. It is also why I strive for more JOY in my life every day!
When I think of young children singing, dancing, giggling, and being silly, I think of JOY.
When I think of a proud parent, I think of JOY expressing itself.
When I think of a couple newly in LOVE, ❤ I think of JOY.
When I think of a couple anticipating the birth of their child, a new life, I think of JOY.
When I think of a hot cup of tea, I think of JOY.
When I think of FREEDOM, I think of JOY.
JOY is amazing. JOY has the power to open our hearts and expand our LOVE. ❤ And I LOVE ❤ that because we are LOVE. ❤ We were born in and from LOVE ❤ and we will return to LOVE. ❤
JOY also enhances our immune system, stimulates our creativity and has a positive impact on everyone around us and the world. JOY is an emotion that can transform fear also. JOY can free one from their own pain and suffering. JOY can help FREE oneself from limiting beliefs and ideals. When you strive for JOY you can never go wrong.
Find JOY in the simple things. Seek JOY and it will find you.
I have written many helpful posts about JOY and you can access them here:
I saw this quote and liked it. And I might add we could exchange the word ‘friends’ with ‘family’ or ‘pets’ or fill in the blank. Love is the glue that makes this quote sticky. 🙂
Love is what we all want. ❤ ❤ ❤ Love is who we are.
It’s so simple really. If we want more Love, give more Love.
I have a new saying now: “Love-Fest“. This weekend I got to meet for the first time my FB Paul Lufteneggar as well as several other people I had met through Paul, through FB, and it was awesome to meet these beautiful souls and have a big ol Love-Fest!
While in Toronto attending the event Paul put on, I also got to spend time with my sister Stephanie. My daughter, Sivanna and I spent quite a bit of time with Aunty Stephie just being and it too was a huge Love-Fest!
I am going to wrap up this blog post by planting the seed of opening up our hearts and minds to simply enJOYing the company of the beautiful people in our life and Lovin them all up! I wish for you many Love-Fests and much JOY today and always and in all ways! 🙂
This morning my 13 year old daughter came to lay with me in bed before she started getting ready for school. She said she was sleepy and just wanted to sleep more. I told her to rest and I cuddled her. I drank in the moment and I embraced her with my arms and my heart. ❤
I started thinking about how much I was enJOYing holding her and I started thinking, as a Mother does, that one day she will be too big to hold like this. And then I stopped myself and said “NO, she will never be too big or too old to hold in my arms!” My eyes are leaking as I type this.
I started thinking about the moments in life like this. My brother popped by our house briefly on Sunday and Sivanna, my daughter, and I, had a group hug with Uncle Ed. I call these ‘Love Fests’ now. Uncle Ed was only over for about 5 minutes to drop something off and I was rushing out to Sunday brunch but that ‘Love Fest’ made a difference in our day, in our life, and it will be a memory in the memory love bank.
I also thought about the older lady I heard speak at a fundraiser I attended last night. It was with the Comedian Medium. Jennie Ogilvie. Anyhow this lady talked about how she wished she had been able “to spoon” her husband when he was dying. This was not possible for many reasons such as the room being filled with children and people and that he was in too much pain to touch. This moved everyone in the audience I am sure. Later in the show Jennie, The Medium, beautifully made this lady see that she needed to see that she was there when he passed and to remember all of the kisses that they did have so to speak, and not to focus on the one they didn’t. 🙂 I loved that.
The sentiment of this lady wanting to spoon her husband, the man that was her partner before children, her LOVE, ❤ that was also a huge testament to the fact that we are never too old or too big to hold someone in our arms, or cuddle them, or hug them ….. or to simply LOVE them.
Today’s blog post is an excerpt from Dr. Bernie Siegel’s book “365 Prescriptions for the Soul”. He says it perfectly here:
THE GREATEST TRUTH I know about life is that love is the answer. If you ask me what the question is I will tell you it is every question you could ever ask. Love is always the answer to every question and problem. We are here to love and be loved and learn a few things in the process.
I can never be wrong when I choose to love. Love rewards me by bringing meaning to my life. I know when I choose to love I will always be in the right place at the right time. It provides my life with the order and hamony that bring me peace.
All I ask of life is to be given the chance to love, and I pray that I will be able to do that, despite my imperfections. My days are devoted to acting as if I am the lover I want to be, and I know someday I will become who I hope to be. Until that day, those around me remain grateful for my attempt.” End of Quote
I hope you enJOYed the excerpt from Bernie’s book today as much as I did. We can never be reminded enough that “Love is All There Is”.
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 a super powerful source.
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 and fear train and instead 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
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 then watch what happens…. very powerful!

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.”
F. Scott fitzgerald

Often I am commenting on posts that I really, really, like and I like put “Love, Love, Love!” in the comments to show how much I like it. 🙂
The interesting thing is that almost all the time, I misspell one of the Loves and it goes something like this. “Love, Live, Love”. And I say to myself something like “oh I made a mistake” but my heart always says “No, it’s perfect!” Love, Live, Love!!!
I got to thinking about this and it is so true! If we don’t have love in our lives, especially for ourselves, we cannot truly live! We are comprised of love. Every cell in our body is and came from love and will return to love. Today in my morning meditation I saw every cell in my body as littles tiny hearts. ❤ ❤ ❤ It was a great visual.
If we want to fast tract our lives to a JOYous journey here on earth or to a blissful state, then we need to fast track our love of self.
This morning when I opened FB I saw a this beautiful post from my friend Paul Luftenger. Paul is a Multi Award Winning Published Singer Songwriter In 120+ Countries
“Paul Writes, Sings, and Composes Conscious Music To Inspire Global Love & Kindness From Within – Powerful Conscious Music Always Supporting The Heart & Soul To Feel and Know Its Beauty and Divine Holy Worth From The Inside Out!”
Paul is one of my favorite people and in his FB post this morning he wrote this. I can’t help but share it here because it is on point:
From Paul’s FB Post:
“What I wish all human beings on earth knew today.
To be kind and gentle and loving to oneself.
To stop pointing fingers at others by embracing the light of love and kindness from within oneself.
I have learned that the real pain of the world comes from one place…the space within oneself projected out on others without regard or responsibility of one’s own energy or vibration. It is the biggest lie ever told.
Healthy people have healthy hearts and healthy souls; they don’t harm others – but rather embrace the self healing process from within oneself.
I have learned in my 42 years of being human that the one person that has to be loved and forgiven is the hardest person to fully embrace and love, and that is oneself.
I use to be so hard on him.
I use to tell him he couldn’t sing or dance or be free.
I use to scold him for being scared.
I use to belittle him for all the stupid choices he had made.
I use to tell him he was weak.
I use to feel he wasn’t smart enough…. or that he was too stupid or too pathetic or too gay or too ugly…..until one day I embraced him for all the things he was…it came to be known after I prayed to God for help on the day my father hung himself….I was shown by God to love the spark of God that he was…. for he was shown that he was a piece of God….. and I began to love the child he once was… the gift to the world he had forgotten he was and day by day his light began to be brighter….and brighter….and brighter.
That precious child within me healed all of my wounds with God’s pure loving grace through letting go and taking the knife away from his own throat.
Each time I cried to God in my darkness, I begged God to show me the way…and God did.
Each day God picked me up out of the mud and pain and shame of my life and showed me I could shine my light. Some people hated me for it… some told me I wasn’t good enough and tried to destroy me….some people discarded me for it… but each day God showed my that my soul was meant to shine and that those who were cruel to me, like me, had forgotten that they could shine from their heart and soul too.
I loved that precious little boy in me whole again with God’s pure love, and the stains of the self hatred started to disappear and vanish from within me…. I began to self illuminate my life from my heart and soul working together reminding others of the light within them.
That little boy is now a man…and one I am so proud to be. When I look at myself in the mirror now, I see all the love that my heart and soul was able to spread.
I have learned that love really is the superpower in the world and it begins with obeying God and trusting and having faith in his way…
Love your enemy, and obey God, by loving yourself again…. by being honest and responsible for the energy you create by being the heart and soul that is within you.
You are not what the world told you you are. You are free of all of that once you claim it.
This is what I know for sure.
Love… and be kind to the little boy or the little girl within you.”
Well that was a beautiful way to start my day. Reading Paul’s post and then I commented with my famous typo “Love, Live, Love”, which seemed perfect, of course, and led me to this blog post. Everything is divinely perfect when we open to the flow of universal LOVE.
Have an amazing day everyone. I send you nothing but LOVE and I hope you LIVE LOVE today.

His teachings contain the premise that our “thoughts become things,” an expression he made popular in Rhonda Byrne’s book and video documentary on the Law of Attraction, The Secret.
I swear I couldn’t love ❤ you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow.
I love when things flow. This morning I keep seeing messages about Love and I Love that! 🙂 pun intended! ❤ ❤ ❤
Here is one that I saw in a Daily Teachings from The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
“Our highest power is love, and it is one thing each of us has an unlimited amount of. How much love do you give to others in one day? Each day we have an opportunity to set out with this great, unlimited power in our possession, and pour it over every person and circumstance.
Love is appreciating, complimenting, feeling gratitude, and speaking good words to others.
We have so much love to give, and the more that we give, the more that we receive.”
The last line is of course my favorite “the more that we give, the more that we receive”. It is such a simple formula and I use it often. Whatever I want more of, I give more of….. Love, JOY, Kindness, Compassion, Inspiration…. etc. etc. etc. I wish you all nothing but JOY and LOVE today and always and in all ways.
Maggie Holbik.com is a passionate Lover of Life who delights in inspiring others to Love Life and to show the world more Love and Kindness by opening their hearts and minds up to the Infinite Possibilities that Love has to offer.
If we discovered that we had only five minutes left to say all that we wanted to say, every phone booth would be occupied by people calling other people to stammer that they loved them.
So true! And even though we don’t use phone booths much anymore, I can see people flocking to their cells phones to share this same message.
Why do we wait?
Let’s not, shall we? Why not tell people you love them everyday and often? It’s a beautiful thing and it is like a muscle, the more we use it, the bigger it gets.
I love you all!
