Everything in Life is an Energy Exchange… Everything!

energy exchange picture

Do you ever have visions or get inspired just before you wake up or get out of bed? I do often and this morning was no different. This little drawing was the first thing I did after making my lemon water this morning.

There are two things I am learning and getting at a much deeper level. One is that everything is art because we are all creators, so everything is art to me now… the food I make, the drawing/chart/whatever you want to call it picture in this blog post, the words I am writing, and on and on. It’s all art becaues I am creating it!

The second thing I am really understanding is that I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt, that everything IS energy, but now I am getting deeply how everything is about energy exchange! As my picture shows, there is energy being exchanged in all directions all the time:

Between the sun and the earth

Between the sun and food and growing food

Between the sun and people

Between the sun and our pets

Between us and our pets

Between people and people

Between business owners and their clients

Between couples

Between words the reader of the words

Between sound and the listener of the sound

and on and on an on.

The key here is what kind of energy are you exchanging in any situation? Is it warming and soothing like the sun can be? Is it uplifting to your soul? Does it bring a smile to your face? Are your serving others with the energy you put out?

Why not ponder on this for a moment or as you go through your day?  Observe the energy exchanges that you have and see if they are serving you for your highest good or if they could use some enhancements.

I will close with a saying that I think ties in well here and will leave you with this thought that I hit home on time and time again. “What you seek, seeks YOU!” So, think of that when you are out there exchanging energy. Want more love? Give more love! Want more kindness in your life? Give more kindness! Want more compassion in your life? Be more compassionate….. and on and on and on…

Have an amazing day everyone and I am sending you so much juicy positive energy that I KNOW you can feel it right now! Lap it up K? 🙂

Rise Above to Love

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. 🙂

Don’t Beat Yourself Up!

This morning I found myself mentally beating myself up. You all know what I am talking about right? The old being disappointed in ourselves for something we did or did not do, said, did not say, etc.

Here’s what I did when I caught myself. I said to myself “Maggie this is what makes you human and that’s beautiful”. Once I remembered that I was human and beautiful, I instantly had compassion for myself and then I stopped the madness. It kind of stopped me in my tracks and reminded me that beating myself up does not serve me! 🙂

Okay that’s it for this blog post. Short and Sweet. Hope it helps you stop the madness if you tend to berate yourself or beat yourself up. Carry on fellow humans. 🙂

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.

Money is Energy

moneyroll.jpg

I have written before about the power of money in the sense that money is a tool.  Like a hammer that  can be used to build something or to destroy something, so can money do both of those things.

Today, however, I am going to share a whole new way of seeing money and its message. There is another power we sometimes fail to see. It is the energy that is used ALONG with money. In fact, money can be a messenger!

For example, I watched this video today. I will attach the link to this video at the end of the this post so you can watch and see what I mean.:-)

In the video a young man is given a $700 tip from a church and its members after delivering pizzas to them.  He is so moved by it that he makes a video and it goes viral. He couldn’t believe that while he is struggling to get his life on track, so many strangers could care about him.

Let this sink in.  The money is more than a monetary thing here. The money carries a message.  A message of love, kindness, support, and compassion. Sure the money will help this young man, but what is infused in the giving of the money is  even more so the gift.

How do you think about money? When you give it to someone or pay a bill, what do think? How do you feel? Do you give with gratitude? Do you give with loving intention? Or are do you give with mental brakes on?

For example, I am fortunate to have a personal assistant. Each week she makes my life easier and helps me for a couple of hours 2 to 3 times a week. I am in such gratitude for this woman and for her help. When I pay her through an e-transfer, nothing gives me more pleasure. I love sending her money. I love appreciating her! I love that we have a relationship in which we help and support each other.  And I hope that when she pays this same money forward she does so with love also.

You see, like energy, money is ever moving, no matter how much or how little the amount. It is constantly in a state of motion, going from one person to another, in some form.

It is my hope that this message opens us up to a new way of thinking when we are transferring money or services, or words, or anything. Think of the message you are sending with whatever it is you are giving or paying or transferring.

Okay here’s the link and enjoy!

I think I know you?

compassionheart

Today, during a trip to the grocery store, I stopped to give a homeless man some money. He looked me in the eye and said “Thank You”. I said “You’re Welcome” with a smile on my face. In that moment I thought to myself, this guy looks familiar. My rational mind then did its thing and told me I did not know him and why it was not possible.

In the next moment I had an AH HA moment. I truly got a deeper sense of the phrase ‘we are all one’. My spiritual self believes that we are all indeed one, but even with the removal of that belief, even for a brief moment, I had a new enlightenment about this.

Often when I travel and especially in airports, I think I see people I know. I then realize that oh yes I am in a different city, state, or country, and then I realize of course I do not know that person. But wait. Do I?

Yes, perhaps I do and we all do. Perhaps we have been the Mom juggling the child on her hip and pushing another in an umbrella stroller with bags to tow also. Perhaps we have been the lady or man in the chair crying because they have just lost a loved one and are travelling to attend their funeral. Perhaps we have been travelling for a special medical appointment because we have just gotten the scariest diagnosis ever. Perhaps we have been the excited bride on her way to a beachfront wedding. Perhaps? Perhaps?

I think I know you might be some very powerful words worth reflecting on. I think I know you may induce compassion, kindness, caring and love for our fellow man, woman, and children. I think I know you could change the world if we saw it this way.

I think I know you?

Blessings.
