Anger, Anger Managment, self-love

Transforming 🅰🅽🅶🅴🆁 to â“â“„â“‹â’º

Yesterday I got really, really, angry and I couldn’t stop myself!!!

It really does not matter what I was angry about but I will tell you that this blood boiling anger I felt came about over a simple thing as a phone charger! I had an issue with my daughter taking my rapid phone charger once again after we had had discussions about this the previous day, and it triggered a lot of anger in me.

As I mentioned it really does not matter the reason why I was angry because that is not the point of my writing today. I am not trying to build a case or prove I was right or that she was wrong. None of that matters… what matters is that this anger did not feel good for either of us.

My daughter cried a lot, I cried and was pained about her crying and was angry about my anger… go figure. See how this stuff starts to spiral deeper and deeper?

Anyhow, this morning, when I awoke and had the feelings and thoughts around this rush back into my morning consciousness, I knew I had to make a decision or to continue to suffer with this newly created pain and anger, or to somehow use this opportunity to transform and heal it.

How would I do this? Well I am currently reading Matt Kahn’s book “Whatever Arises Love That”, and I thought yes Love is the answer. I have to love this situation and to love my anger. This is what will transform this frequency and even turn this situation into the gift that it is!

Love My Anger?

What an opportunity I have! I have the opportunity to:

  1. Identify that I am alive and aware of my anger and of this situation
  2. Choose to take the opportunity to shift it all to a place of Love and a higher frequency
  3. To see the gift of this situation and to relish in my humanness
  4. To maybe help others with anger and other painful emotions by openly sharing my story and how I am working at transforming this situation this morning….

Okay whew. I’ve been openly honest here with myself and those reading my words. And now I can love myself back to love. I will do this by choosing to shift this situation right in the here and now. I choose to send love to my heart and to my daughter’s heart.

I choose to not ‘resist’ or ‘deny’ that this is or has happened. I had A LOT of anger and I displayed it, but now I will send love to the situation and “love what arose”. When I love what is, I displace the anger because they cannot co-exist.

Wow. Feeling better already. I will now go forth with a lighter and happier heart and I will project love around this entire experience and move forward in my day with a loving heart once again.

I hope that you found this as helpful as I did in writing it. And please remember you can replace the emotion of anger with any painful emotion and send love to it to help shift you from that feeling of ‘frustration’, ‘judgement’, ‘hatred’ (fill in the blank) and love ♥ what arises, send love to it, to you, and release the hold that it has on you and in turn you will project MORE love out to the world too. By doing this we all infuse more love and loving kindness out into the world.

So even in our darkest moments, we can turn them into conduits of love and healing.

Much love to you today….

Why Do I Let My Light Shine?

Why do I let my light shine? And why should you let your beautiful light shine?

During my morning feeding of my soul, I contemplated this very question and was inspired through some work of Matt Kahn. I will share my thoughts here today.

Matt talks about giving and receiving and that giving is receiving and receiving is giving. I really resonate with that and I know this to be true. When I give to others I receive that which I give. If I show love to someone, I feel more loved and loving. If I give kindness to others and they receive it, I receive it too!

And then I started thinking about loving ourselves and about letting our glorious and beautiful souls, spirits and personalities out to shine for all the world to see. Matt talks about when we let ourselves shine we allow others to shine too! It really is win-win.

But then I thought, I work at shining to help me too. I try to shine so that I bring light to my own darkness, my own doubts, my own fears, and my own insecurities and struggles. To put it another way, I shine light to dissipate my personal pain and suffering.

I am learning from Matt’s work that the fear and the pain are divine too and this has helped me to better love what is and to move through it easier.

To sum it up this whole thought process of mine it is this:

If we let our lights shine, we heal ourselves from pain and suffering and we fill in the dark spaces with light and then in turn we shine and lead the way for others to also do this. We become a beacon of light and one by one we awaken this truth in others and then our lights radiate farther and wider and that very love and light is infused into the hearts of many.

If you are reading this today, please know that these words are infused with much divine and immense LOVE & LIGHT for you!

So do your part and let your light shine okay? You’ve got this!

With Much Love

“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.

A baby taking a step ‘baby steps’

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……

Don’t Give Your Personal Power Away

💥Personal Empowerment is

♥ Your Source of Energy ♥

The older I get, the more I tap into my own power and personal empowerment. We are energetic beings and bodies, and it is wise to understand this.

When we feel empowered, we feel charged and ‘full of life’. When we are experiencing disempowerment we feel void of life force and of energetic strength.

Ways We Might Disempower Ourselves

What are some things or ways that people disempower themselves?

There are many but a few that come to mind are:

Not Going Within For Answers

This is one of the most common ways. People do not listen to their inner guidance and to their intuition. When you are not tapped in and tuned in to your inner guidance system, it is easier to fall prey to the beliefs and conditioning of the masses, which are not always in alignment with your higher self or with what is true for YOU.

Putting Too Much Emphasis on The Opinions of Others

We all have talents, skills and ideas. As a Life Coach I always try to teach my coaching clients to go within and to find their answers, desires, wants, and to identify the needs that they need to have met. This is what coaching is all about, helping clients to come to their own conclusions and to guide them to use their personal power and wisdom to move forward in their life.

What I often see is that people lose their power by placing too much weight in and on the opinions of others.

For example, “My Doctor said” or “My Accountant said” or “My friend Mary said she heard on the news and blah blah blah”…. I am in no way knocking the wisdom and guidance of professionals or any person on this earth, however, I believe in order to be personally empowered, one must have balance.

For example, I take the guidance from my dentist, accountant, lawyer, medical professional, media, friends, etc. but I use my own discernment also and ultimately come up with my own plan of action based on their guidance and their wisdom and in combination with my wisdom as well.

I don’t blindly forge ahead without asking my questions, maybe even doing some research on my own or asking for second, third and even fourth opinions. And then I use all of the information that I have received and I go within to my higher self and make my formulations which is also based on my feelings. Those are important too. Does this feel right for me? Does the advice of this particular person feel right for me and this particular situation?

The minute I hear someone say “My So and So said… you Fill in The Blank..” the hairs on the back of my neck go up and I think “yes, but what do YOU think, feel and desire?” What feels right for you?

I am going to give you one of my real-life examples. I have shared this simple example with clients over the years, and it gets the point across. Here it is:

I have been going to the same dentist office for my whole life. When I was young and through most of my adult life, I just went to the office and had everything done that this particular office did when I went for a check-up. Speed ahead to now in my life…

I tell them what I want to be done. For example, at this point in my life, I do not choose to have fluoride treatments so I do not get them. I decide, along with their recommendations of course, if it is an appropriate time for me to have an x-ray or not. If I feel it is in the best interest for my oral health at this time, I may say yes but I also decline them more often than not.

The point is, is that I decide what way I want to go and I am the customer who is paying so I very much have a right to decide what is best for me. This my friends is an example of being personally empowered to make choices that you believe are in alignment with YOUR best interests based on a combination of guidance from others and your own input.

And as for people in roles of giving advice and counsel, I think the most beautiful of these people, best help their clients by ‘guiding them to decisions’ and helping their clients to feel empowered and informed.

Not Loving Yourself

This is one of the biggest ways that we disempower ourselves. We don’t show ourselves the love that we are and that we deserve. We need to love every part of ourselves. Our ego, intellect, body, spirit, and soul. If we are not our own best friends, then who are we? Take some time to think about this deeply. It is so important for us to love ourselves.

And it does not matter about where we came from or what was done to us. We can choose to love ourselves. Sometimes just being free to know that is is a choice, helps us to start us on the path to more self-love.

I have written several posts on self-love that you might find helpful. Here is the link

I am going to wrap up for today as I don’t like to make these posts too long but I will leave you with this thought:

It is interesting to note that the more we empower others, the more we empower ourselves. This is when we tap into the force and we understand that there is more power in numbers.

I love this! This is so true. There is true freedom in being able to be who you are and in full!

Last night I did a Zoom video training online for some entrepreneurs from all over North America and I really hit home on this!

Be as much ˜”°•.˜”°• YOU •°”˜.•°”˜ as you can be! The more we are being ourselves expressing our beautiful divinity and individual sacredness, the better.

I was saying that I actually made a point of being me on that call last night. I wore no makeup, I had a little hole that I discovered in my yoga top that I was wearing .. and I did not change it. I just went with it 🙂 And you know what? It felt great! GREAT I tell you.

I am learning that the more ME I can BE the easier this thing called Life gets.

So why not let yourself loose today and go all in just being YOU? You who has your own unique smile, way of chewing, nose, wit, passions, desires, JOYS, insecurities, cuteness, nastiness, ups, downs, and all-arounds. 🙂

May your unique dance of life be yours and only yours.

Namaste my friends.

Perfectly Imperfect

It will never be perfect, but perfect is overrated. Perfect is boring.”

Tina Fey

Perfect is indeed boring and what a relief! We need only be ourselves in our perfectly imperfect ways. I like it!

Just wake up everyday being all us just the way we are.

Woo hoo. Sounds good to me 🙂 What about you? Are you in and all in?

♥ Let’s do this imperfect thing. 🙂 ♥

The Power of Emotional Support

It has come to me lately, that there are 3 kinds of exhaustion we experience. One is physical, one is mental, and the third is emotional, which to me is the most draining of the three. Emotions can also be defined as energy-in-motion.

Sometimes we have all three of these types of exhaustion happening at once and that can be tough. But one of the most powerful ways to help any of these types of fatigue is by receiving emotional support.

I did a training for my fellow Infinite Possibilities Trainers the other day and it was about expanding your reach by building networks and using Facebook to do just that. During the training I shared with the students that building any kind of network is powerful. For example it takes a network to raise a child. We get support in doing this if we are lucky, from fellow family members, organizational leaders, teachers, counselors and more! It is not just us that raises our child. In fact, I came up with a new saying “It takes a family to raise a family”. 🙂

Can you see the power of a network of any kind? In particular when we get emotional support from others regardless of what we are going through in life, it is a HUGE deal and helps a lot. We are energetic beings who have energetic emotional batteries. These batteries can run low and need to be recharged regularly. The fastest way to recharging or quick charging is by getting emotional support.

There are other great ways to recharge like spending time in nature, using creativity to express your emotions and to release them into a manifested state, practicing self-care, eating well, exercising to release energetic burdens and to replenish positive energy stores, but the most powerful of all is when we feel emotionally supported.

And let’s not forget those pets! Pets are the best emotional supporters of all. 🙂

Sometimes in life, we are the supported ones and sometimes we are the supporters. Life is beautiful in this way that we can tag team support for each other on this journey here on earth.

And we must remember that it is always okay and it is in fact a very good thing to reach out and to let others know when you need some emotional support. Sometimes at these times, it is the hardest to do, but that is when we need it the most.

Anyone reading these words, please know that they are infused with both Love and Emotional Support for YOU! 🙂
