Personal Peace

model-2373407

“Until you make peace with who you are, you’ll never be content with what you have”. Doris Mortman

The above is a very powerful quote and is one that is worth paying attention to. Sometimes it takes us an entire lifetime to realize that we came to earth to be exactly who we are. Let’s not wait that long!!!

It becomes very freeing when we realize that we are the ‘gift of who we are’. We are meant to BE ‘who we are’.

This is not to say that we cannot re-define and re-create ourselves anew in any given moment, but I believe, the journey begins where acceptance starts. When we fully embrace who we are and are at peace with who we are, the magic begins. 🙂
The rest of the journey becomes delightful play and co-creation, where we can manifest and delight in the playground of life.

I Can’t Stop Looking at this Picture!

yearin review

The other day I shared this blog post over on my other blog http://www.MaggiesVitmamins.Blog and had a lot of engagement when I shared it on FB so I thought it must be inspiring so I will share it on my main blog as well. So here it is 🙂

I love the FB memories thing, but today when it came up, I was in for a shocker!

Looking at this picture from one year ago today (picture on the left) prompted me to take the picture on the right (just today) to compare the two. This was really a vulnerable experience for me and I debated whether to share it or not, but here I am.

I am amazed at the difference I see. It made me reflect on the changes I have been making in my life. As many of you know, I made a decision to NOT buy into the “I’m getting older” model and to flip it around to “I’m getting younger all the time and it’s working” model. 🙂 🙂

I have also coined a phrase for myself and for my nutritional practice which is “Nutrition IS the Mission”, and I am feeling really, really, good about the results I am seeing not only in myself, but in my clients.

When I look at these two pictures I realize yes, I have lost a lot of weight, but what gets me excited the most is how nourished I look in the 2nd picture. The weight is secondary to me. My skin looks so much better and I can see and feel an entirely different energy in picture #2. The person in picture #2 is embracing her health and the ability to transform it, and it’s working and it’s showing.

For me though most important is the personal empowerment I feel from knowing that changes can and do make a difference and I know that if they work for me, they can work for others. This is exciting!!!!

I do not aspire to any trendy diet, but focus on more nutrition, Joy and just more… more of the good stuff… especially fruit. I am an advocate of more fruit in the diet and even potatoes. Potatoes were something I did not eat, but now that I ‘know’ how good they are for us, I enjoy them like crazy. I really enjoy the work of Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium, and have learned from him and his teachings and that has been hugely helpful.

Another thing I am focusing on is removing heavy metals from my body and helping others with this as well. By adding in more nutrients and removing pathogens and heavy metals, we can help to balance our bodies and they can run at a more optimal level. Our bodies are always trying to heal us and when we support them, well they love it and do a better job at it. 🙂

Anyhow thanks for reading along and I truly appreciate your support by being here.

I feel as though my entire life has prepared me for this time and I am looking forward to sharing all that I have learned through my own personal experience and my nutritional education. I am excited to continue improving my own life and in helping others on their journey to healthier lives using Nutrition as a catalyst to healing and to making positive change.

Fun Friday! Lighten up!

getyourhappyon

Whenever I look at this picture from years ago it makes me smile. Here is my kid wearing a lampshade. I don’t remember why it was in the vehicle but we were obviously transporting it somewhere and she put it on her head.

It is moments like these that remind me to ‘lighten up’ pun intended. 🙂 We take life way too seriously!!! Once of the best things we can do is to laugh more. In fact we should be laughing as much as we can. It’s good for the body, mind and soul.

Have you ever been around those kind of people who always have a smile on their face or the ones who laugh from their belly? Or better yet, the ones who jiggle all over when they laugh. They are the best! We as souls, crave laughter and joy. It’s our birth right in fact 🙂 and we need to be reminded of this and do more of it.

Today, being Friday, a day that people tend to view as one of the better days of the week for this vibe, I encourage each and every one of us to add a little more fun and lightheartedness into our day. It is so so so so therapeutic and it helps every single person around us too! So if we don’t do it for ourselves, let’s do it for the Team. 🙂

Laugh your whatever off… just DO IT! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Here is a picture my daughter made of me laughing… yep this is what I look like!

Two Easy Life Hacks!!!!!

bella love is in my home

When the opportunity arose the other day, I snapped this picture , which I consider adorable, to say the least. I was thinking I should use this in a blog post and then got to thinking…  every time I look at it my heart swells with gratitude so I will write about gratitude and share some easy hacks I have found to add more gratitude into our lives.

Hack #1

Pets! Pets are the easiest, fastest and #1 way to shift one into a frequency of gratitude. When they greet you with unbridled exuberance and are jumping for joy to see you, it’s pretty hard not to feel grateful for their presence. Wouldn’t you agree? 🙂

My little Bella, who is in this picture, patiently waits for me every morning to do yoga together. Seriously!  My yoga usually starts with a short conscious relaxation segment and Bella lies on top of me. When I get to the part that says “touch one hand to your solar plexus and one hand to your heart”, I usually change it to “Touch one hand to your cat and one hand to your heart”. It works for me ha ha. 🙂 Bella likes it too!

29717877_398443270566264_7007747504343089152_n

Pets are full of unconditional love and they display it often and well. Gratitude and Love are two matching frequencies and they are really one in the same so the more we can tap into the frequency of gratitude, the more love we let into our lives and the world. And let’s face it, that’s probably a darn good idea isn’t it?

Hack #2

Place things into your space that trigger feelings of well-being and gratitude. The pillow in the top picture says it all. “Love is in my home’. It reminds me every time I see it to remember what is really important to me. It also makes me think of the good friend who gave me this pillow for my 50th birthday. Thinking of her always puts a big smile on my face.

I also use pictures and artwork that make me happy and remind me of the beauty in life, like this one.

26867967_212031399357830_6198248118685794304_n.jpg

When I look at this throughout my day, I am reminded that life is good, that there is beauty when I look for it. Even looking at this picture of my picture brings me Joy! Especially when I see the sun dancing in it… extra Joy Pop!

Here is another example of how I incorporate messages and reminders for gratitude and beauty and joy into life. I have several cups that I like to use with beautiful sayings on them. 25009309_367512150377862_4686375542654500864_n

So not only is this cup reminding me to have a great day, but the green smoothie inside will bring joy and gratitude to every cell of my body, especially after it is charged with these empowering words.  How awesome is that?

It is important to remember, that EVERYTHING is energy and has a frequency to it.  Be sure to put into your environment, things that make you feel good and remind you of all that you have to be grateful for. There is always something to see if you will look. 🙂

More Joy!

I am sitting here once again at the cottage and I am working on my presentation entitled “More Joy”. This is a remake of one that I have been offering for years, called “Finding Joy in Your Life & Work”. I decided to change the name and revamp the presentation.

I find it truly fitting that I am working on this at my ‘happy place’ and in complete Joy.

I really believe the magic formula for life and work, is to be in Joy in whatever we do. Sometimes life gets into the rut of routine and we lose that joyful passion or we may even forget what truly makes us happy. Life is short and I think we should make it a priority to focus on and bring about the areas of our lives that make us the most happy. When we are in Joy and enjoying life, we are more balanced and more productive.

I would love to hear what brings you Joy? Feel free to comment and share your favorite things, people, events, food, experiences, way of being, places, etc. that bring a smile to your face, makes your heart sing, and fuels your passion for life.

Blessings to all!

On Laughter & Healing

Planets Row

September 26, 2016

Automatic dictation received by me today from my guides, source, or my higher self (you call it what you want) It is on laughter and healing.

Good morning my lovely guides. Good morning our lovely little one.  We are delighted as always.

Maggie says:  Please tell me about the frequency of laughter and joy.

YES the frequency of joy and laughter.  Laughter is to the soul as sun is to the Earth.  Laughter activates and engages the frequency of Joy.  It reaches through and pulses through to the cellular portion of your being. It radiates and manifests throughout the cells and it in fact lights up the hologram of your being.  It is the energy running through the track. It is the force behind the force so to speak. So laughter is good for the soul, for the physical body, for the mental and emotional body.  It would be wise to laugh often, to laugh whole heartily and to laugh with others as well.

It is a light frequency in both ways as in weight and in it being iridescent and indeed it has the ability to heal the body, mind and spirit in more ways than one. It has the ability to change and shift the frequency from density to light in both ways.  Laughter is a form of joy that is different than the joy of watching your child being born or looking at a baby in all its perfection.  Laughter is Engagement of the Soul. It creates an electric and electrifying pathway. The joy of looking at a baby is very, very powerful and it activates the core of pure, sweet, love and unconditional love and Godself and all of those amazing things.  It is just at a different frequency. That frequency is more intense and while anyone who has experienced looking at a newborn baby will know that intensity, laughter is lighter and freer and uplifting and it is the perfect frequency to shift energies when it comes to healing, especially the mind and body. The human body will embody and hold and make into a mass frequencies that are, what is the word we’re looking for?  That are convoluted or out of balance. Laughter can immediately shift and release and be energized and get those frequencies back on the path of circulatory movement as energy is always moving and constantly in motion. Do you see that this is the problem with density?  Energy circulating in this fashion it is in discord. Think of it as circulating in counter-clockwise pattern.

In answer to a thought I was having….

Yes you are correct in your thinking Maggie these are like packets of information if you will. They are packets of energetic frequency that vary from the natural and free-flowing circulatory energy. You do have a circulatory and immune system or lymphatic system and an energetic circulatory system.  You have heard of these energetic pathways referred to as the meridians as well as the nervous system, but we would like you to keep the concept simple in order to help others with this and just think of it like the third system. You have learned that there is the 3rd ventricle to the heart which is the connection to your higher self and Source. This system gives you insights into the higher realm and into your divinity and yes it is known as your third eye… the 3rd…. and you see the pattern of 3.  The third circulatory system is your energetic pathway. This is perhaps the most critical pathway when it comes to your health and well-being of Body Mind and Spirit. We will say it IS the most critical in the priority of balance in the body and in the mind. Spirit, however, is always in balance. It is in the flowing of spirit that becomes unbalanced. Everything is about the flow and the ebb and flow. It is the ebb that attracts the density.  The flow is always there. It is always running the show, so to speak, but you humans who are living in bodies tend to block the flow and you interfere with the ebb and flow. Going with the flow is very, very important but perhaps we should look at it as allowing the flow and encouraging the flow. Thus flowing your energy.  That is a beautiful concept.  Flowing the energy. One way to feel the energy is through intention and through visualization. This is why we shared with you the third circulatory pathway of energy.  Visualize this pathway running along the two other pathways.  See this energy flowing synergistically  with your circulatory your lymphatic and within itself. It becomes a circuit. When you combine these three you are super charged so to speak. Everything will flow better. Visualize this in  and through the power of 3 as all three system running concurrently together as one energetic force.

In Answer to a thought I was having:

Yes little one the word cyst is taken from the concept of system. Stem formation.  Formation is everything. Simply put this is in-formation.  Packets of energy that become form (in-form). When in form they become part of the system or systemic compilation of energies.  So a cyst or mass in the body,  would be akin to a mass in the dam in a river. It is a blockage in the flow of the energy in the energetic system just like a pile of logs and debris would be a blockage in the flow of a river with water. Sending energy and light and laughter to assist them would help you rearrange the information package that is to assist and to restructure or restructure and rearrange that information in a more conducive energetic frequency for balance in the body.

In summation, flowing the energy is important. Laughter and joy are expedited pathways of energetic flow.  Physical exertion is exercise for the physical body and laughter is exercise for the soul. Laugh often and laugh much!!!! 

Life is Like a Board Game

Life is like a board game. We play the game, we make different moves , we pick different colors, and when the game is over we put it back in the box (coffin).

And if you believe in reincarnation, we open the game again, make different moves, pick different colors and when the game is over we put it back in the box.

We open the game again and again, re-choosing and making different moves.

And it does not matter what moves we make. There is no right or wrong, at the end we close the box, put it away, and play again, if we so choose.

It matters not if we win or lose. There is nothing to lose or gain, it’s just a game. The game is infinite and has unlimited possibilities and choices. We base the game on our choices and our re-choosing. Sometimes we are the King and sometimes we are the Pawn.

They say children learn the best through play and it’s true because life IS play. We play Work, we Play House, we play Dreams.

The questions to ask are “did we have fun along the way?”, “did we play the game with passion?” “did we engage fully and embrace all that the game had to offer?”. Or did we play along as a pawn feeling that we were a victim to circumstances beyond our control?

Perhaps if we see this thing called Life as a game of creation, we would lighten up, laugh more and realize we take everything way too seriously.

What is the Secret Ingredient for Success in Life & Business???

Sharing a Secret ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

What is the difference between people who struggle in life and/or business, and those who accelerate and advance with gusto?  What stops people from fully enjoying and embracing what they do? What is that secret ingredient that makes a difference?

As a Life & Business Coach, I hear these very common questions a lot. What’s missing in my life or my work? Why am I not happy? What is this void I am feeling? Why are others successful at what they do and I am not? “Something is missing, they say”.

So what exactly is the fuel behind what we do, why we do it, and for what reason?

For many years as both a Life Coach and in leading entrepreneurs, I have seen this common thread often. Many people have the misconception that the importance is in what they do, verses why they are doing it.

So what is this secret fuel or ingredient? The answer is PASSION! Passion is the energy behind creation and doing. It is the fuel that propels us to greatness, or even to simplicity.  It is something we desire. Either way, passion is an integral component to why we do what we do, whether it’s personally, or in business.

Sometimes we need to be very honest and clear about digging deep to discover the passion that already exists in the things we do. For example, perhaps you have a home based business specializing in non-toxic products and believe you are truly passionate about your products and services? Is it really the products you are passionate about? Or is it that you love you non-toxic products because you have a passion for a greener earth? Is that what truly fuels your mission?

Many times what we are doing is simply using various vehicles to fuel our passions. Vehicles we use might be: types of businesses, being a part of an organization, being a group member, volunteering, creating, art, and the list is endless.

What if we did not focus on ‘The What’ but stayed clear on the ‘Why’? When we see clearly and align with our passions, the channels open up to us, like opening floodgates! This is when the magic happens. The Universe clearly hears our message and matches our frequency. Now we can soar to great heights faster and smoother.

What is passionate to you? Is it being the maker of your own destiny? World peace? Time freedom? Animals? Feeding the hungry? Natural foods? The list is endless.

My friend Helen recently opened a raw food café called Bliss Café. Helen is passionate about food as our medicine, and passionate about sharing both the food, and her message, with others. Anyone who knows her will agree. In fact, her passion is contagious!

Helenblissprofile

Would you agree that Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Bill Gates, Julia Child, all were or are passionate? Absolutely! Passions come in all forms.

When we wake up and embrace our Passion, the magic happens. It does not matter if we are the bread maker, service provider, concrete layer, or financial wizard, as long as we are fueled by our personal passions, we will have a winning formula.

I have heard people say they don’t understand why their business is not working, or why they feel stuck. I offer to them a challenge, to truly seek out and find their underlying passions.  They will then understand the ‘why’ behind what they are doing.

Perhaps you are in a transitory position, or job that is not ideal, but rather than looking at it as a chore, or a drain, see it as a very integral and important stepping stone on your journey to developing your passion. See it as leading you to the next phase of your journey which is fueled by your passion. When you see it as a stepping stone to your passion, rather than as a grind, it changes everything. It is moving you closer to your desires, not taking you away. Seeing it this way shifts everything.

The same is true in education. When we are truly interested and passionate about a subject the learning comes easy to us. There is a sweetness, and eagerness, and we want to eat it all up, just like a good book, or a great read.

Two of my passions are Nature and Beauty. So now I go out and take pictures in nature. I then share them with the world through Social Media. Am I a professional photographer? No, but I am riding on my passions and utilizing them to benefit others at the same time. Too often we get caught up in details that block our passion. As Nike says “Just Do It”.

So the next time you feel disconnected as to who you are, or why you are doing what you do, ask yourself what makes me happy? What do I love to do? What puts a spring in my step? What gets me out of bed in the morning? Then take those seeds of passion and plant them! There is no right or wrong way to do this, just get the ball rolling.

Have fun with it, listen to your heart, and enjoy!

passion

Anita Moorjani on Buddah at the Gas Pump

Anita Moorjani on Buddah at the Gas Pump

heartslisten

I spent some time today listening to an interview by Rick Archer from The Buddah at the Gas Pump. He was interviewing one of my most favorite authors, Anita Moorjani. I absolutely love Anita’s story about her near death experience and the wonderful insight she gleaned from that experience.

I was once again reminded of the importance of listening to the pull of our hearts when making decisions in life. I am an advocate of doing whatever I can to live more fearlessly and in joy so listening to my heart and it’s calling, resonates with me deeply.  When we listen with heads, we tend to lead with fear. The fear of what might happen, or not happen, what we have or do not have, consequences, and on it goes.

When we listen to the pull of our hearts we are dancing with our soul and our inner callings and we are listening with passion and with purpose. An easy way to do this is to use the ‘Lift or Drop’ question. When you ask your internal self a question, or you think about an idea, or of a potential course of action, does your heart lift and rise or does it drop? This is an amazingly easy way to check in with your soul.

When we listen to our heads and our egos become engaged, it really can become a battlefield that often leads nowhere or to more fear. By listening and making decisions from our heart space, our true essence leads the way and we can then become the grandest versions of our authentic selves!

My wish for everyone is that you listen to your hearts, lead with love, and live in joy.
