The Flow we Learn From Nature

waterfall-3730353_1920
The Chopra Centre talks about The Law of Least Effort which states “Nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease. When you become lighthearted and let go of struggling to force things to go your way, you’ll experience the spontaneous fulfillment of your desires and purpose.”

This is something that can be deeply contemplated but the irony is that it’s all about ease and grace and flow. Just like nature!!! Nature flows and is always beating to its own intuitive drum. Nature does not have to ‘figure anything out’. Nature just is. Nature is Nature being Nature.

What if we let go of some of our resistance that we ourselves create and be more nature like? What if we just put the paddle down and let our canoe turn around and go downstream smoothly and joyously rather than struggling to paddle upstream?

So often we are the ones who create the resistance, the turmoil, the fear.

Today I encourage you to let go, go with the flow, detach from outcome and from expectation. Maybe be like a tree. Hang out and dance to the beat of nature’s wind.

Universal Love

sivanna heart pic

This past weekend, my favorite artist, πŸ™‚ my daughter Sivanna who is 12, decided to do some art that entailed using all hearts. I loved the idea! We quickly started to co-create this piece together just as the universe co-creates with us and with our desires and intentions.

In this beautiful piece you can see that all things are connected… the flowers, clouds, sun, butterfly and even a pet! πŸ™‚ And these are all connected through a universal heart and they all are composed of their own hearts.

This beautiful hand-made picture has a profound depth to it. The more we realize that we are all connected, that we are all one, and that what we do affects the whole, the more we will consciously raise the frequency of the planet.

I truly believe that at the end of our lives we will come to understand that at the end of the day Love is all there is, and that the things we spent so much time worrying and fussing over never even mattered in the first place. Wouldn’t it be nice to get to that place now? It’s possible and it’s beautiful. I am personally grateful for this beautiful reminder and encourage all reading this to reflect on the idea of this connectedness and to share this blog post with others…. you will never know the impact it can have.

Easy Tip for Thought Management

stop thought
Thoughts are things and thoughts are what we use to create. We create art, we create tables, chairs, houses, cars, color patterns and schemes, poetry, music…. etc. etc. etc. All of these creations start with a THOUGHT.

The fastest path to having the life you want is to realize this ASAP, PRONTO…. aka RIGHT NOW! I am grateful to have tapped into this many years ago and it has been the most powerful catalyst for creating a life of Joy, Happiness and Love.

So here is a tip to help you with your run on negative thoughts. You may have been taught to say something like “Cancel” or “Stop”. However, there is a much better and more effective technique that I have used for years.

Here you go….. Just ‘replace the thought’. Yep, it’s that simple. If you start thinking something like “I’m no good or I’m no good at this”…. etc., just stop and switch your thought verses trying to cancel or stop your thought. Pop a new thought right in there. Think of something you are good at and start thinking that. Or, if you struggle with that, completely switch gears and change the whole thought theme. For example, just switch to thinking about something you are grateful for like your cat, dog, child, that you don’t have a serious illness, that you CAN go for a walk (some people cannot), whatever. There is always something to be grateful for!

Okay I hope this helps and remember even though it sounds simple enough, it is very, very, very powerful and it’s like a muscle the more you use it the more powerful it becomes. πŸ™‚

Dealing with Muddy Waters

muddy water

One of my favorite quotes is from Alan Watts “Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.”

How often do we tend to stir up situations when the water is muddy and make them worse by giving them attention and energy? Lest we forget another great quote: β€œWhere Attention goes Energy flows; Where Intention goes Energy flows!”
James Redfield

There are many reasons we do this but some that come to mind are:

1) We over-analyze and read more into situations than we need to. For example, maybe someone did not react in a way you expected or they said something you found to be off. Maybe they are having a bad day or they are sick or depressed or whatever, it matters not. We don’t have to react or stir up the waters unless we CHOOSE to. This is where the quote comes in… ‘Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone”. When we leave it alone it can give US peace and clear the waters perhaps.

2) Our egos jump in and we need to ‘be right’ or to feel we have control of a situation. πŸ™‚ What about that saying “Do I want to be ‘right’ or ‘HAPPY’? Choosing happy means you let the waters clear and do not give it enery or attention.

Take a look at the picture in this blog post and perhaps use it as a tangible reminder to consciously CHOOSE how you react to ‘muddy water’ situations. Do you take your stick and stir it up and make it worse? Or do you send the situation Love and let it rest? Choices, choices. We always have choices. πŸ™‚

I Woke Up With a Bursting Heart!

heart bursting

This morning I was inspired in my sleep to wake up, get up, and to write this blog post. I was so excited I was BURSTING!!! I am one of those people whose mind and heart never stops working. When I get excited about something I feel it bursting out through my heart center and when I feel this sensation I know I must share it.

I truly believe that life is about serving others and making a difference and that is why my dream inspired me to share why I personally love what some people call being in ‘Sales’. I like to call it SALES…. or Sharing Awesome LOVE Everyday with Someone! Call it what you will, it’s the best thing you could ever do or be in as far as I am concerned.

As my acronym states, everyday I get to share awesome love with someone somewhere. I get to offer benefit and improvement to someone’s life and that benefit or improvement may continue to work in that person’s life everyday moving forward.

Whether I am selling a nutritional product, a coaching package, or my recent offering of a hair mineral analysis which tests the hair for heavy metals and mineral imbalances in the body, I am helping to change people’s lives! What’s not to love? How LUCKY am I?

It truly perplexes me why anyone would see the sales with a negative connotation. I fully embrace and am honored that I can perform this role for my fellow teammates here on planet earth. πŸ™‚ I am pumped, over-joyed and thrilled about it!!!

If I can help to make a difference in someone’s life to feel better, be healthier, understand themselves more, have more Joy, worry less, improve their health, look better, feel better…… etc. etc. etc., of course I would help them. Why wouldn’t I? In fact, I am excited to help people. I want to do more and more and more of that! I get so excited about it, it wakes me up and brings me to the keyboard. πŸ™‚

I believe if we are alive and breathing here on earth we are in sales. It is our job to serve each other and to make a difference in the lives of others. Do it with Love, do it with Kindness and if you are in the field deemed ‘Sales’ do it with honesty and excitement, and with the intent to make a difference, and you WILL make a difference. Serving others is a gift that we are all born with and it is the gift of life. When we both share this gift and receive this gift we get to experience the magic of it.

Children are the best ‘sales people’ on earth. They are naturals. They get excited about things and they share it. Whether they just found the coolest rock or they want the candy they see on that low lying shelf at the grocery store, they are going to let you know loud and clear. They will show and tell you why they should have it or why that rock is the most exciting rock on planet earth. πŸ™‚ They naturally share their exuberance and delight.

If you are someone who is reading this and has an offering for the world that you share on a regular basis, I encourage you to get excited about it. Do it with LOVE and with an intent to make a difference and most of all own what you do and be proud of it. It is an HONOR to be able to make a difference in the live’s of others.

My Reflections on Life Coaching

I woke up today at 4 in the morning and had to write down these notes on coaching that came flooding through my soul and flowed onto the paper. I knew then that this was something I needed to share so here we go!

You know when you really get something at a deeper level? It’s like you are really getting it and embracing it like you have never done before? Well that is what is happening to me. I have been a Certified Life Coach for 11 years but recently I have truly been appreciating and embracing all of the gifts that coaching allows me to experience and most importantly to pass along to others.

jumping for joy

life purpose certificate

I cannot express how much joy comes from my chosen line of work! What are some of the things I get to do that fire me up?

Well I get to remind people of their dreams and help them remember what is important to them and for them. It’s so easy to get lost in the functionality of life that we forget or bury our soul’s calling and desires. I get to help people take back their soul’s callings and see clearly what it is that is important to them. WOW!!! How awesome is that?

I get to be the light if darkness is what they see. I can shine my light and bridge the way to more light and laughter and Love in their lives. I get to offer HOPE and shine the way for the path to brighter days. I get to help them cross the bridge to transformation and enlightenment. πŸ™‚

I get to help them remember their greatness and to never play small.

I get to help people be accountable so that they make sure to live their lives with passion and purpose so that they don’t forget ‘who they are’ or why they came here.Β  I help them to be the beautiful and authentic self that they came here to be. I help them strip away their fears and cast aside their doubts. I help them to become personally empowered and to live with zest and gusto, if that’s what they choose!

I get to help them stay healthy in body, mind and spirit, so that they can execute their earthly mission and be who they were meant to be!

I get to help them add in ‘more’. More of whatever it is they want. More Love, more laughter, more joy, more health, more exercise, more walks, more art, more abundance, more fun times, more success…. just more, more, more of whatever it is that will make their life the one that makes them leave this earth with no regrets!

 

Best of all, I get to be their personal cheer leader. I get to applaud them and celebrate their successes both big and small. In fact there are no small successes. To me as a coach, they are all GREAT successes and we celebrate and rejoice in all of them!

How lucky am I? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ There is nothing I would rather do! πŸ™‚

MaggieHolbik.com is a Life Coach & Board Certified Nutritionist who loves empowering others to have all of those things mentioned above. πŸ™‚ Maggie is always open to chat and offers complimentary 15 minute phone, Skype, or Zoom chats to help you to explore if coaching is a fit for you.

Leaks in Your Self-Talk

clear intentions

Watch for leaks in your self-talk. Take a listen and see if you hear yourself using words like “I think”, “Just”, “I’ll try” “Maybe”, or “I’m sorry” way too often. Although all words have places in our vocabulary and in our daily conversations, sometimes people develop a habit of over using self sabotaging words or statements.

This is especially important to be careful of when dealing with universal laws. When we are wish washy or we are not being clear or direct with our messages, we get results that are wishy-washy and unclear.

For example, if you start most sentences with “I think” as in “I think I am happy”, or “I think I like my job”, or “I think I might like to go on a vacation”, you are being very uncertain and that is what you put out there! One of the keys to manifesting and creating is to be clear and concise. Even if you are unsure of how something might happen, you need to be clear with your intent!

How about this instead? “I love my job!” verses “I think I like my job”. You may not entirely believe this but by declaring it, you will start to love it and be happier and have less stress and more satisfaction etc. This works for anything. What you say and declare you bring about. It’s that simple. Words are more powerful than people realize.

Recently I attended a writing workshop about the power of ‘one’ word. It WAS powerful to see this. One word can make a huge difference. Think of this an ’empty’ room or a ‘spacious’ room? Let that sink in. Huge difference. Now imagine statements and strings of words put together. They can have huge impact.

So in conclusion, I encourage you to choose your words wisely and choose words that are empowering to your self esteem and to your mission or goal. Own your words. My favorite new saying lately is “Not only have I found my voice, but I am owning it”. πŸ™‚ I think this is very applicable in this scenario of creating, manifesting and bringing more clarity into our lives.

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…Β  every time I look at it my heart swells with gratitude so I will write about gratitude and share some easy hacks I have foundΒ 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? πŸ™‚

My little Bella, who is in this picture, patiently waits for me every morning to do yoga together. Seriously!Β  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. πŸ™‚ 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.Β 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.Β  How awesome is that?

It is important to remember, that EVERYTHING is energy and has a frequency to it.Β  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. πŸ™‚

Own Your Magic Button!

pushoncered

When it comes to people affecting our moods, we have more control than we think. In fact, we’ve got the magic. We truly do. It’s all about learning how to harness the power also known as our personal power.

Here is a quote I like from Esther Hicks.

“When it feels to you as if someone is pushing your button, realize that you are the one with a great big button out there that is just begging to be pushed. If you don’t put it out there, no one will push it.”

Let that one sink in! Imagine you are walking around with this big button on your heart that is saying “Push me, push me, and I will react”. It is VERY empowering to know and own the fact that NO-ONE can push our buttons or offend us or anything else, unless we choose to be offended, hurt, etc. We have personal power and responsibility when it comes to these situations.

Sure it’s not easy at times and no-one deserves to be downright abused, but in life and in my coaching practice, I have seen a lot of people suffer needlessly because they have chosen to wear that button and wear it proudly :-). I personally choose to suffer the least amount possible in my life, so I actively keep that big ol push button tucked away and try not to display or use it. There is a saying I have liked for all of my adult life “What other people think of me, is none of my business”. This has helped me to better react in the challenging situations.

I really believe that the first step to change is to actively acknowledge and become consciously aware of how we react and respond to things and outside stimulus provided to us in the game of life. The better we master our reactions, the less we suffer. Sounds good to me. What about you? πŸ™‚
