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!



My Brother’s Words

As a person who craves nature, I spend as much time at my cottage as possible. In fact, I am here now. The leaves have all turned color and some are falling from the trees as I type this.  I find being here cleanses my soul and reconnects me back to myself.

I love words and I love the power of words. I keep a journal at the camp, as we call them in Northwestern Ontario, and I was moved when I returned to the camp/cottage this week and read my brother’s entry. He did three actually. One to his son, who he was here with, one about the great time he had and such, and then a third one.  I loved the one to his son as I know it will hold even greater meaning as the years progress.  I too write messages to my daughter and visualize her reading them after I am gone in the hope she gets comfort from them and that a part of me stays on and I can continue to support her.

However, the third one really touched me personally and made me reflect on life, on family, and on being human.

Here are his words:

“This Sunday morning finds me here. How nice for us all. To celebrate, sharing, caring, failing, giving, disappointment, learning, growing each day along life’s path…. Peace Be with You”.

At my deepest core I was grateful that my brother used words such as disappointment, failing, and learning. Life is like this. It is not all flower gardens and butterfly happiness, especially as we go through a lifetime as a family. We have our ups and our downs. We have been both the judger and  the judged!  But we get over these things. We recognize our humanness in each other and we remember Love and that we are Love. We connect back to the thread that ties us all together. We are all human and trying to make our way through the process of living a lifetime on earth, learning as we go. The kindest thing we can do for ourselves and our fellow humans is to have empathy, compassion, understanding, forgiveness and Love, for ourselves and others.  You will notice I always put a capital letter on the word Love. It’s that important to me.

What a wonderful gift life is and it offers us opportunities to forgive, to encourage, to embrace, to hold space, to move through the darkest hours and to Love.  We go through life like mirrors reflecting back to each other our trials, our tribulations, our joys, our triumphs and we are never alone.

To my brother,  I love you with all my heart and I have gratitude for you and everything you teach me just by being you and sharing with me through your excitement for life, your interest in life, and your deep appreciation of family and its importance in our lives.

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!!!! 

Money is Energy


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!

Blessing be!

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.

I think I know you?


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?


Why I Have an Un-Bucket List

my un-bucket list red

For most of us, life gets so busy and we spend a lot of time doing things we don’t want to be doing, or not doing what we want to be doing.

For myself, I have an ongoing Un-Bucket list. Yep, these are things, places, experiences, etc. that I take OFF my list. This is the opposite of the ‘To-Do List’, it’s the ‘Not-To-Do List’.

For example, my spouse and I recently tried a new restaurant for a change from a regular favorite. This new restaurant is now on our Un-Bucket list. We tried it but we just did not get the same joy at this particular restaurant verses our favorite.

Both life itself and time are precious commodities. I personally never want to waste another minute doing anything that I have to trudge through.  I see any time that I give up to do something, as sacred. I like to think of an hour of my life being worth a million dollars, because to me it is. I love life and participating in it.

There are others ways that I have added to my Un-Bucket list as well. I always had a dream to play the piano and when I finally had a daughter I thought my dream was about to come true. She and I would take piano lessons. Marvelous Darling!  We did and I loved the music but practicing was something we had to force for both of us, and we decided to take this one off of our list. The joy factor was not great enough for either of us, but I am glad I experienced it.

It was the same for water color painting. I took an 8-evening class or so and created a nice piece, but I found myself forcing myself once again. I now know that when anything feels forced, it is not flowing for me.

Now writing I love! Social Media I love. Helping entrepreneurs and business owners with ideas to increase profits and get their messages out there, I absolutely love. It thrills me in fact. I can use my gift of creativity and expression to help others live their passions and do to good in the world. What’s not to love?

On a final note, the Life Coach in me, truly believes that it is important to try the things or experiences you wish to have. By trying them, it becomes a form of completion so that we do not get to the end of our lives and have regrets. Done that, did it, kind of thing.

My wish for all of you reading this, is that you make the time to do the things you love and that you love the things you do.

My Picture

Heart Verses Mind

Difficult choice. Businessman balance Heart And Mind. Isolated

Use your mind as a tool. Recognize that through the mind’s eye you can see and access the gate to hell or the gate to freedom. Hell, for lack of a better word, is simply being trapped in a mind that sees the pain and the negativity. Hell is comprised of focusing on the pain and the suffering and leads from a victim stand point. People can become prisoners of their own mind. It has been said that the greatest torture one can experience is to be locked away somewhere with only their own mind.

Being locked in one’s mind and trapped in negativity is like being in a cell with the bars of the cell comprised of fear and suffering.

Our mind is a tool just like money is a tool. They both can be used to build something or destroy something. We need to use our minds wisely.  The easiest way to do this, is to lead with the heart and use the mind for its capacity as an orchestrator of our thoughts. Our heart is truly the orchestrator but the mind can be used as a workshop for our thoughts, helping us to create our so called realities.

The heart cannot lie, only the mind can. Ego is famous for leading the mind astray, but the heart never lies.  To live in heaven or nirvana here on earth, we can ask over and over again “What would my heart say?” Does my heart lift or drop when I ask that question? This could be any question. Someone asks you to go for lunch with them? Lift or drop? Someone asks you to volunteer for something. Lift or drop?

The heart always knows. We need to listen to our hearts and use the mind to get things done. We need to be the master of our minds, leading from the heart and not the ego.

Love gives the heart a spritz of joy. When we see, focus, and bring into our site, beauty and joy, it charges our heart with more energy and expands our loving frequency. We literally become “larger than life”. So we need to get out of mind, into our heart and let the divine process flow freely.
