Personal Peace

“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.

Live Every Moment in the Present and with DELIGHT!

adventure
I think sometimes in life we tend to ‘begin with the end in mind’ and it stops us from having Joy in the moment or in the ‘Now’.

Whether someone is planning a trip, going on a date with a new person, taking a new course, or even starting a new job, they will often analyse the situation to death and try to foresee all potential outcomes of the experience. Their thinking becomes so clouded with variables, that they miss the gift of the experience and especially miss the opportunity to delight in a new experience.

By being open to adventure and to new opportunities without expectations or without seeing the potential of an end result, we are in a much better place to receive the Joy of the experience.

Moving forward, why not be more open to new experiences in and of themselves? Perhaps keep in mind that it is an experience and a mere moment in time. The only constant we have in life is change itself. So if the said experience is enjoyable and you want to continue with more experiences like that one, you can, and if you find that it was not as pleasant as you would have liked, you can chose to make changes and/or pursue other experiences. The most important point is to go into the experience without trying to figure everything out ahead of time, which clouds and negates the evolution of the experience.

One of my favorite examples is people when they are dating. They worry about all the details of thinking ahead to see if they are compatible with that person. Just go on the date and be open to delighting in the experience! Let the evolution of the experience lead the way for you to know more, knowing you are free to change course at any given time in your life.

Enjoy…. Be Open…. Delight in Them!…..

Reflections on My Life

bdayround.png

Today is my Birthday. Every year on my birthday, I find myself doing some self reflection and inner observation. I have a journal that I sometimes use on my birthday, to write myself a message. Today I thought I would read this over and reflect but I could not find it.

What would it say from past years? It would depend on how far I went back in the journal I suppose. The farther back I would go, there would be entries about trying not to worry about what others think, about feeling better about myself, perhaps some guilt and shame thrown in there to add to the recipe, and then things that I wanted to improve in my life.

In later years, it would probably say something more along the lines of reflecting on what I accomplished in the past year and the great strides I had taken.

This year? So many wonderful things. At 52 I feel more free than I have ever felt in my life. Free to be ME! Free to choose and create my ideal days that revolve around Love, Gratitude and JOY! Free to express, to create, and to make my days meaningful and to live my life with both zest and depth.

My soul feels very HAPPY!!! One of the choices I made this past year stemmed from a comment someone shared with me once. They said that they had noticed that when people are around 50, they seem to make a choice. They either buy into aging or they turn this age into a sort of a pivot point where they make changes. They seem to wake up to how valuable health is and how it affects the quality of their life and future life.

Needless to say, I picked choice 2 and have never looked back. I decided to believe that I am getting younger every day and it’s working!!!! This past year has been monumental for me in my life in regard to the improved health of my body, mind and spirit… quantum in fact.

I have never felt better and every day gets more and more exciting. I am so looking forward to the rest of my life. So much so, that I lose sleep! lol

One of the key things I have found to help with these changes and in embracing aging is to apply focus. I do this with any change I am trying to implement. I choose not to focus on what I am giving up, on what I did have, or on what yesterday was like. I keep my sites on the NOW and the future. I find the freedom in the ‘new’ not the past.

In future blog posts and in my new coaching series that I am working on “Your Path to Joy”, I will be sharing more on how to get excited about making positive changes in your life and how to let go of things that no longer serve us.

If you are reading this, thank you for being in my life. Today I am getting so many wonderful messages on Facebook, through text messaging and more and I feel so Blessed and grateful. I am grateful for every experience I have had the pleasure of experiencing in life and I am grateful for every interaction with every one who has touched my life in some way.

I send much LOVE to all today and my wish for you is to make the rest of your life the best ever!

Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me!

I love you Maggie. The best is yet to come 🙂

On Laughther, Life, and The Human Spirit’s Ability to Prevail

pinky promise

Today I went for lunch with a long time friend of mine, Marj, and although we don’t see each other often, it is always an instant and heartfelt connection when we do.

Today, was a delightful lunch and we laughed very hard throughout the lunch.  In fact, we laughed several times until the point of tears. We talked about funny memories that we had from a place we both worked at in the past, we talked about sickness, life, and even death.

After I left my lunch, I realized how good it was seeing my good friend and it was extra good because we laughed so hard. It was one of those lunches where you were really glad that you had the experience. When I got into my car, I thought to myself, that I was going to let my friend know how much I enjoyed it when it hit me…..

Wow, here was my friend who has just lost her husband a few short months ago and who also JUST found out that she has breast cancer and here we were laughing and laughing and I was leaving there feeling uplifted? How could this be? In was then that I realized how amazing my friend is and how resilient the human spirit is.

To my friend, you are amazing and you inspire me with your strength, kindness, compassion, joy for life, wisdom, and your amazing resilience to triumph and blaze through some of the most difficult challenges of life. I am sure we could all agree that in life, it’s not a matter of ‘if we will go through hardships’, but when and you my friend have risen to the occasion. I know that you have felt deep pain and loss, and that you are probably scared,  but to see you able to laugh and carry on is a gift to me and the world.

Keep being you. I love you my friend!

Why I Love to Take Pictures

20160822_195228

I love to take pictures and for various reasons. One of the reasons is I love to capture beauty. It’s like an art form for me. How many times have I taken a picture of a sunset in the same spot? Hundreds of times. It is the moment that is new and in each new moment in life there is beauty.

Another reason I love to take pictures is to capture the moments in life that bring me Joy. For example on FB this morning, I was viewing the My Memories feature, which I Love btw, and saw pictures from last Easter. BOOM!  Joy all over again.

My sister Stephanie and my daughter Sivanna spending time together and helping me to prepare our Easter feast was the photo presented to me this morning. I smiled and a tear came to my humble eye.

The next photo memory to grab my attention was Sivanna and Auntie relaxing after the egg hunt. 🙂 Priceless. That picture tells an entire story.

Many people I have heard from, tell me they prefer to be in the moment rather than taking pictures or filming. Ex. at a wedding or similar event. For me, I love to ‘capture’ the moment. I love to take a piece of  Bliss or Joy from a moment of time and then delight in it in the future. I love the opportunity the digital world offers us.

Many people use Instagram these days and my Instagram account is more so a collection of my beautiful moments in life. This collection includes my sunsets, my happy places, my creations, my favorite food, and more. I’d like to think that if I died and someone wanted to know what was important to me, my Instagram portfolio would tell a lot. I invite you to view my favorite pictures there. www.instagram.com/maggieholbik  I love to go and look at them now and then because it reminds me of what is most important to me. 🙂

And please if you enjoy these photos, give them a thumbs up. It is nice to know that others appreciate the beauty in life too and that the efforts of capturing them are appreciated. It’s encouraging 🙂

World Peace

worldpeacered

While organizing and purging in my office tonight, I found this piece written by my honey in July of 2014. I thought it was the perfect time to share it, so here it is…..

Some day we will see everyone on our planet as equals. When that day comes we will all see each other as one. Color, race, and religion will not be an issue. It will be impossible for anyone to go without the material things of life that we need to survive.

We will automatically know that when we are caring for our planet and everyone on it, that we are caring for ourselves because we are all one.

We are waiting for the world leaders to create peace in the world. To create peace in the world we must change our thinking. Peace can only be created through collective consciousness. When the majority of the world population consciously desires peace, then we will have world peace. God always gives to us whatever it is that we deeply desire. We create our own lives with our thoughts, words, and our actions. When enough of us create collectively and consciously, we can change the world.

The solution to peace in the world starts with each one of us. We must learn to love and not hate. We must teach our young that love is the answer to a peaceful, happy life.

Love All Ways,

Don Perry

Love is the Highest Vibration!

mama-courtney

I just had to share this post I saw today on Facebook by two people who are out there spreading Love & Kindness, Denny & Courtney McNamara. You can follow their FB Page at
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and that you share it far and wide. The message is beautiful and much needed right now… Maggie
Tuesday’s Intuitive Tip
Love is the highest Vibration

When we love ourselves we heal the world. Did you know that in every present moment we can heal the pain from our past and insure a loving positive future if we choose love above all else?

The vibration of love is so powerful that it can stop war in its tracks, heal relationships and bring lovers back in union all in a heartbeat. Love curls your toes and makes you weak in the knees. Love brings unity to the planet and harmony to our souls. There isn’t a more sought after vibration than love.

Yet we fear it with everything we are. Why? It’s my belief that love destroys Ego. Ego and love are on different frequencies and therefore can’t be experienced at the same time. Therefore our Egos are in fear of losing control over our lives.

The only way to experience unconditional love is to fall crazy, madly and unconditionally in love with ourselves. Loving yourself will heal the pain that resides in the Ego. Practice self care, meditation, journaling, setting goals and boundaries and make time to nurture the most important love there is. Self love

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!

Happy 90th Louise Hay

Louise Hay October 8, 1926 age 90 October 8, 2016

Happy Birthday to an amazing lady and leader of Love and Light. A few years ago I got to hang out with Louise for an entire weekend at the “Movers & Shakers”, workshop in Toronto, Ontario.  What a gift that was.

Louise Hay is known as one of the founders of the self-help movement. Her first book,  Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, and it launched her work connecting the mind and body.

Louise compiled a reference guide detailing the mental causes of physical ailments, and developed positive thought patterns for reversing illness and creating health. This compilation was the basis for Heal Your Body, also known affectionately as “the little blue book.” She has spent a lifetime lecturing and facilitating workshops on loving ourselves and healing our lives. I consider her to be the master teacher of self-love and I celebrate her and her work today, on her 90th birthday.

Louise is also the founder of Hay House Inc., a successful publishing company. What began as a small venture in the living room of her home has turned into a prosperous corporation that has sold millions of books and products worldwide. Hay House authors include many notables in the self-help movement, including Dr. Wayne Dyer,  Joan Borysenko, Dr. Christiane Northrup, and Doreen Virtue, among others.

To Louise Hay. Happy Birthday Louise! The world has more Love in in because of you and thank you for teaching us to Love ourselves! We celebrate  you today!

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!!!! 
