Use it!

Positive expectation is like a muscle. The more you use it, the bigger it gets. The same is true for the opposite. The more we worry and have fear, the more we attract the frequency of worry and fear.

I’m sure we have all heard of ‘The Snowball Effect’, which implies that as a snowball rolls down a hill it gets bigger and bigger and bigger, and it is very true. It’s also very exciting when we do realize how powerful this is. If we can expect good things to come into our life, good things do start to happen and then the snowball effect happens because it is the same as building a muscle, the more you use it the bigger it gets!!! 🙂

I encourage everyone today to have a good workout and build those muscles of positive expectation and awesome outcomes! 🙂

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.

BE-YOU-Tiful

Have you ever marvelled at the human spirit? I know I have. Life is filled with both glory and pain. We all go through things in our lives and through life’s experiences that can be tremendously challenging, painful and even heart breaking. 

Lately I have been reflecting on the human spirit and our will to go on. I have come to believe that our true beauty is in our humanness. What if we saw our so called shortcomings, our so called flaws and even our addictions, as the very things that make us beautiful and real? What if we realized that the very things we judge as ‘bad’  or ‘ugly’ are the things that in fact, make us beautiful? These are the things  that make us human and alive.  These are the raw truths that make us empathetic and compassionate toward others. What if we had more compassion for ourselves and actually saw the beauty in these ‘gifts’? 

The next time you jump on yourself and are ready to be critical of yourself for something you did, said, or did not do, etc., why not stop yourself and remind yourself that this is what makes  you beautiful?  Try turning your disdain of self into appreciation of self. With compassion for self, we can have compassion for others. 

A saying I use often is “Love is all there is.” If this is indeed true, we must all get better at loving ourselves.  It has been said that it starts at home 🙂 I have personally put a note on my fridge to remind myself that these human traits are what makes me beautiful, alongside all of my beautiful soul sisters and brothers travelling with me here on earth.

This concept may seem a little weird, but I can say it really has helped me to see things differently within myself and with my judgement of myself. It makes me have much more compassion towards me, and I truly am starting to feel like I am my own best friend and that’s a really awesome feeling, I must say.

I hope you decide to hold yourself within the palm of your own hand and to see the beauty that is YOU.

Sometimes You Gotta Jump!

beach-1850250_1920

“Man is born to live, not to prepare for life.” Boris Pasternak

I have fully come to believe that sometimes in life you just have to jump in and take a chance on things. Life passes us by faster than any of us want to admit and it is unfortunate that people leave this earth with regrets and dreams not acted upon.

How many times have you analysed something to death or got yourself so worked up about making a decision that you just shut down and did not do anything?

As the quote states, we are born to LIVE and living means grabbing onto the things we desire to do. When I look at my life and at some of the things that matter most to me, I can clearly see that those were the areas where I jumped! I jumped in with both feet and then trusted the way would be shown to make it happen for me and the way WAS shown and they DID happen! 🙂

On another note, I also believe that even if I ‘jump’ on something, it may not be the perfect thing for me, but here’s the catch… I trust that the way will once again be shown to me! Perhaps it’s to adjust my course or re-choose something, but it always works out. Why? Because I jump, I trust, and I know that I can adjust my sails and change my course if need be, but if I never jump I sail nowhere.

I leave you today with the idea of going for those things that matter most. Remember to LIVE and not to spend your life preparing to live.

Sun Angel Over The Sleeping Giant

sun angel 2

Yesterday I snapped this picture which I now call “Sun Angel Over The Sleeping Giant”. According to Wikipedia The Sleeping Giant is a formation of mesas and sills on Sibley Peninsula which resembles a giant lying on its back when viewed from the west to north-northwest section of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. For those of us who live in this area we are all very familiar with this legendary giant and we even have a slogan representing the city of Thunder Bay that states: “We Have a Giant Heart”!. I did capture this picture the other day and you can indeed see the giant heart, so I thought it was fitting as well. 🙂
heart lake superior

I really do believe this Great Lake, Lake Superior has magical and healing properties and to have both this heart and sun angel appear reaffirms to me that there truly is something mystical and magical about this lake and area of the world.

Lake Superior is the world’s largest fresh water lake by surface area, the largest of the Great Lakes of North America. The lake is shared by the Canadian province of Ontario to the north, the U.S. state of Minnesota to the west, and Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to the south.

I feel blessed to live in a part of the world where I can enjoy this lake and all its beauty.

This 12 Year Old Has it Right as a Life Path #2

love is all there is 2

Once again my favorite artist, my 12 year old daughter Sivanna, nails it through her art! “Love Is All There Is”. It is a saying her Dad and I use often and brings me great Joy to see her take this on as her own philosophy. And she truly is a kind and loving person who is very sensitive to the energies around her.

I am reminded of her Life Path Number in Numerology which is a Life Path #2. Life path 2’s are what I call “The Love Number”. They are all about Love and balance and cooperation. Life path number 2 is a vibration of duality and division, the number of truth and learning. They seek harmony and peace and are very considerate and thoughtful of other people and their feelings. People with a Life Path 2 are natural peacemakers and are great at mediation because they can see and hold the space for both sides of a viewpoint.

They are very loyal, and when they say that they love you, count on it!

I truly believe that at the end of our lives what will matter most will be who we loved and who loved us and that “Love is all There Is”. Way to go Sivanna. You already understand a great secret to life.

Maggie Holbik.com is Sivanna’s proud Momma and lover of the science of numbers. She has been using Numerology in her Life Coaching practice for many years. She finds it fascinating and extremely accurate. Maggie offers reports that she sends to people all over the world via email. There are 3 to choose from. 1) Life Path 2) Your Yearly Forecast and 3)Relationship Report

The Miracle of You

bald-eagle-1018732_1280

I had an AH-MAZING experience today. I was driving down a peaceful road by myself and listening to a song on Sound Cloud sung by my friend Paul Luftenegger called “The Miracle of You” The Miracle of You on Soundcloud

In the middle of the song a bald eagle swooped in front of my windshield and gracefully glided by and then swooped back up into the sky. It was incredible! I saw its entire wing span and all of the colors in it. It was like a intimate encounter with this beautiful bird. I have never been so close to a bald eagle ever like this, and the entire experience seemed divine. It was literally like it was in slow motion even though I was going about 80 km an hour.

I tried to find a picture to depict what it looked like, but I don’t think I would ever be able to find one that could capture what I saw in that divine moment.

First Time Seeing Snow!

l1

It seems as though winter is upon us early this year and lots of people are grumbling about that, but not my great niece Lindsay. This is the first time Lindsay has seen the snow and look at the JOY!

Lindsay’s Mom, Nathalia, married my nephew John Paul and they moved to the United States from Costa Rica so there are so many new and wonder-filled experiences happening like this one.

It brings tears to my eyes to see the Joy in these pictures and the Joy in this new family. I am so proud of my nephew and of his new wife. I had the pleasure of meeting Nathalia recently in person, after getting to know her through the gift of Facebook and it was confirmed how amazing this woman is. She is kind, strong, courageous and will soon be a mother again as she and John Paul are expecting. How joyous to watch the gift of family expanding in so many wonderful ways.

I feel blessed that I get to watch this love unfold and to see the joy in my nephew’s world. Here is his exact words about the joy of Lindsay in the snow:
“To be young again… She’s making me remember :-)”….. Ah and the circle of life continues….

And a family wouldn’t be complete without a pet right? Here is little Donny the Dog experiencing winter for the first time and the caption with this picture was “What is Winter?” How cute is that right?

I wish for all to see the gift of life itself in each and every day.
