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.

The Greatest Gift

own happiness

I saw this quote today and just loved, loved, loved it! It reminded me of a FB post I did yesterday about my daughter in reference to a trip that I on right now. I am in Hawaii for the first time on a bucket list trip. I have always wanted to come here and have finally done so!

Here was the post and picture:

I truly believe the greatest gift we can give one another is our own happiness and along with that, allowing others to have their happiness too!

I think this applies to death too. So often people are so sad for long after a loved one’s passing. I always imagine their loved one saying something like this, from the other side “Stop!!! What are you doing? Be happy. I’m gone but you’re still there….. don’t waste another second in sadness and pain. You still have time left 🙂 I only want for you to be happy!!!!”. Although never easy losing loved ones, I am sure we would all agree they would just want us to be happy.

I leave you with the thought of having an intention to make your happiness a priority so that you can give this gift to those you love and that love you and the world at large!

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.

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.

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.

Universal Love

sivanna heart pic

This past weekend, my favorite artist, 🙂 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! 🙂 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.

Beach Glass Heart Eyes :-)

beach glass face.PNG

Today I went for a walk along the beach at my place on Lake Superior. As per usual I picked up any beach glass that I saw as well as any interesting rocks. I often wonder how many rocks I will have 10 years from now? It is just beginning and I am like a kid in absolute joy. I have several collections already.

Today I found two more heart shaped beach glass ones that I used for the eyes in this picture. The thought of them made me reflect on how we see things in life.
Do you see with your eyes but through your heart?

Seeing with our heart involves actively looking for and seeing the beauty in life as well as seeing both the world and its inhabitants with Compassion, Love, and Kindness. And as I always swing back around to…. ourselves. Do you see through your heart and look at your own self with kindness? With Love? With Compassion?

Today and everyday as you go about your daily tasks, please remember to view both the world and yourself with more Love, Kindness and Compassion. When we all do this we raise the collective vibration of Love and Kindness on the planet and we make room for more Beauty and Joy to infiltrate into our experience.

Blessings to all…

The Flicker that Wanes

tea-candle-407144_1920

It has been awhile since I have written a blog post but as they say “such is life’. I no longer beat myself up for the ups and downs and on and offs. We all go through these and they are a normal part of life. A very normal part of life in fact.

I also reflected today on the ebb and flow of life and how as we go along, our light sometimes gets dimmer and at other times it gets brighter. The quote I ran across today inspired me to write about our lights. “At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person”. Albert Schweitzer

We have slips and falls and somehow we get back up and keep going. I try to look at the slips and falls as blessings to show me once again, what I do want. These breaks in momentum can really be catalysts for clarity and growth. Nothing has meaning until we give them meaning, slips and falls included. 🙂

The wonderful thing about life is that we can support each other in these times just as the quote states. And this includes ourselves!!! Instead of beating ourselves up for things we are not doing or that we feel we should or shouldn’t be doing, let it go. Be human. Be real. It’s all good. Be your own light and in turn be the light for someone else when they need it.

I hope this blog post is the spark that you need to carry on or to free yourself from any self judgement or whatever you need at this time. 🙂

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 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. 🙂 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. 🙂

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. 🙂 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.
