When I think about the most soothing moments in my life, they are the ones where I felt love and that I was also shown love.
I really do believe that we are here on this spiritual journey to express love and to expand our ability to love and to receive love, because we are love. That is who we are. We are love expressing itself. And along with that comes beauty and JOY and compassion…. so many wonderful things.
Lately my favorite words are “loving kindness.” Even if I book myself a medical appointment for a diagnostic or something, I put it in my calendar as my “Loving Kindness Scan” or whatever it is.
I am purposely seeing all people and situations around me as opportunities for me to receive love and well-being from others regardless of their physical role in my life.
When we do this, we can then expand our ability to take in and receive love and that is a good thing because then we have more to give too. 🙂 Awesome all around.
I am sending lots of LOVE your way today too! Can you feel it? 🙂
In recent blog posts around thoughts, thinking, and the power of affirmations, we talked about thinking good thoughts to attract more good thoughts and affirmations about embracing who we are which in turn helps us to love ourselves more. These are all important because they help us to love ourselves more!
When we love ourselves more we spread loving energy and shine our loving light onto others and it truly becomes a breeding ground of love and more love.
The more we soften and embrace the loving energies within our own hearts, the more we open the highway of love for everyone.
Love is the common thread of who we all are. We have come from love and we will return to love. And we can love ourselves and others all the way back to where we came from. And as I often quote my favorite quote from the late Ram Dass:
I have been so excited to write this blog post! I could hardly wait in fact! I have been sharing my new discovery with a few people and they were all WOWED by it so now I want to share it with everyone! How this came to be is that one day I was thinking… Continue reading Just One Letter Makes A Difference
It Is Our Nature We were born through creation and we are here to create, so it only makes sense that growth and expansion are natural to us and something that we inherently seeking. Everything is energy, even rocks! 🙂 Rocks are a denser energy than we are but they are still comprised of energy.… Continue reading Growth & Expansion Is Our Nature
I have a little saying on my fridge. It says, in my own handwriting. “What is the point of livin the life if we don’t live the life?” Now you might think that is silly but it works for me. When I see this and walk past it, it instantly reminds me to do the… Continue reading Be Determined to LIVE Your Life – TODAY!!!
“What happens when people open their hearts?”“They get better.” – Haruki Murakami Open Your Heart to Heal When we are facing an illness whether temporary, chronic, or terminal, there are always things that we can do that help us to heal, even if it is just healing our hearts and opening to more JOY along… Continue reading Healing With Intention
I have a good friend named Paul Luftenegger. We met through Facebook and I can’t say enough about Paul or his music. My life has changed for the better since meeting Paul and I am forever grateful to Facebook for this gift. And of course to the divine orchestration that occurred to make this happen. 🙂
This morning I took time to watch and listen to one of his music videos of a song he wrote called “Universal Love”.
I can’t watch and listen to this video without being moved to tears. It makes my inner being remember that nothing else matters, just Universal Love and Love Expanding Love.
When I listen to it, all of my cares and worries fall away and I remember ‘Who I Am”.
I am going to make it a goal to listen to this often if not daily to remind myself of who I really am.
As many of you know, I adore Facebook memories and go to them every morning. They are such a nice journal for life.
Anyhow, this morning before I checked my FB memores I was lying in bed with my Bella on top of me. I was lying on my side and she was sitting on my side with her head toward my head. I took this picture of it…
I was basking in our mutual love and loving the warmth of her tiny body on mine. It takes me back to the days of my tiny child on top of me and it warms my heart when those memories flood through.
There is nothing better than a tiny body snuggled in bed with you and then to top it off with an angelic voice from a tiny munchkin. Ahhh so sweet it is!
But in this case it is purrs and that is just as angelic.
When I opened my FB memories, I saw this.
I remember this day well 7 years ago. It was like having a new baby but the baby could walk. LOL
I reflected this morning on how much JOY Bella gives us and the LOVE she brings into our house.
When my daughter was a baby my friend Helen said to me something to the effect of “Every house should have a four legged friend” or something like that and I took her words to heart and made it happen, along with the Universe lining it up for me from a mutual friend on Facebook, Sandi Boucher.
Sandi had posted that Bella and her brothers had been rescued from the bush and needed homes. Sivanna, my daughter who was 7 at the time, and I went to pick out the kitten we wanted and well the rest is history. Bella came home that day and it has been wonderful and wonderfilled. 🙂
I am learning in life and through my studies, that LOVE is the universal pull that attracts to us all of the good and glory. The more we live in LOVE, the more beauty and awesomeness is attracted to us.
Pets help to be that conduit of LOVE so that the circuits of our life light up with LOVE and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
I know not everyone can have a pet for various reasons, but if you can it is so worthwhile. I really believe they are gifts from the Gods to bring us JOY an to fill and overflow our hearts with that unconditional love that we all seek.
“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 en𝐉𝐎𝐘 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.
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. 🙂
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……
Today my daughter Sivanna, who is now 14, shared with me a paragraph she wrote for one of her online class assignments.
Aria is 4 and is Sivanna’s great niece.
This is what Sivanna had to say to the question “What is something that always puts a file on your face?”
“Something that always puts a smile on my face is Aria. Aria is my 4 year old great niece. Every time I see her, her face lights up. Whenever she sees me she has a huge smile on her face and runs up to me and gives me a big hug. That always makes me smile. She is always so cute and whatever she does makes me smile. Whether the way she talks or when she dances, or how she is so sweet and shares with me. Everything she does makes me smile and I love her. But I can’t see her right now because of quarantine.”
♥ I thought this was so sweet. ♥
While I was looking for Aria’s picture for this blog post, I found one of when my Sivanna Rose was little. So cute too!
“Hugs can do great amounts of good, especially for children.”
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:
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.
“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. 🙂
