Life IS A Classroom BUT……………..

“Life IS a classroom and the lesson is LOVE” Maggie Holbik Quote

Is life indeed a classroom?

My entire life I have thought about this question and I never resonated with the thought of us being here to ‘learn lessons’. I had always believed that we were here to create and to have JOY!

However, I have come to a new understanding, at least for me…..

I feel that we are here to learn the ‘Art of Love’ also. The Art of Love helps us to learn kindness, compassion, empathy, understanding, and more. We learn about these through experience i.e. the days spent in the classroom of life. 🙂

When I was around 16 years old I was given an internal message that I never forgot. That message was that I was on earth to learn to “love and not judge”. I have never forgotten this and it is now even more meaningful for me.

As I travel through life, I continue to experience life’s teachings and they continue to teach me about the gift of the Art of Love. For example, as I walk through my journey with cancer, I am opening to a whole new form of Grace around this Love.

I am learning that every encounter can be an act of Love or an act of Grace, as I like to call it. I know that I learn from every encounter and experience that I have and I imagine that I also have something to offer in the encounter as well. We are all teachers and students in every encounter we have. The secret is to empower others in every experience and hopefully to be empowered also.

For example, I had a phone appointment with someone today who is helping me to set up a program that I may want to access in the future that will help me with my health choices and quality of life. I was so moved by this person and I know that I in turn moved her. I knew right after our phone conversation that what I shared with her by recognizing her role in her work and in the world, might impact her now and forever more. And you know what I also knew? I knew deep down that when we impact one person, it is not just one person, it is the whole. We are all one and when one person is impacted they impact all of those they come in contact with and on it goes.

I hope that you find JOY in the classroom of life and that you too let the Art of Love add richness and meaning to your life.

I encourage you to see every encounter as one where you can enrich someone else’s life and in turn your life may be enriched also.

I love you all!

Maggie

cancer, Joy, My Cancer Journey

Just One Letter Makes A Difference

I have been so excited to write this blog post! I could hardly wait in fact!

I have been sharing my new discovery with a few people and they were all WOWED by it so now I want to share it with everyone!

How this came to be is that one day I was thinking about my ‘full-time’ job of protocols that I am doing daily for my healing journey with my diagnosis of colon cancer. I thought to myself this is like a JOB. And then it hit me!…………..

I can’t think of this like a job and in that instant I had the vision of these two words: JOB and JOY!

And in that moment I knew that the only difference between the two was ONE LETTER!

It does not matter whether we are referring to a job, working at something, a project, a hobby, a healing protocol, or doing our taxes, it applies to all of it. We have to CHOOSE!

We have to CHOOSE! JOB or JOY?

One letter changes everything.

Not that there is anything wrong with the word job or in having a job, it is just that we often look at ‘jobs’ as work and something that is hard or tedious and that really puts the brakes on in our energetic field. And things just don’t flow like they should!

We must always have JOY in what we do and if we just can’t muster up the JOY to do our taxes because we see it like a JOB like I do lol, that is when we get someone else to do the things we don’t enJOY and we focus on the ones that we do enJOY. Personally I LOVE paying people for products and services that I need. It makes me HAPPY to do so. And if it is not in the budget to get people to do those ‘jobs’ that you don’t want to do, barter! Bartering is a great way to help others and yourself too! We can share our gifts and JOYs that way too!

But no matter what it is, when you shift from JOB to JOY the whole game changes. As for my healing protocol, I not only changed from JOB to JOY, I took it to the next level and turned it into EXCITEMENT! I am excited about my healing journey. I am embracing it and that makes is sooo much easier!

This shifting of one little letter was very refreshing for me to discover and I hope that you find this helpful too! 🙂

Growth & Expansion Is Our Nature

It Is Our Nature

We were born through creation and we are here to create, so it only makes sense that growth and expansion are natural to us and something that we inherently seeking.

Everything is energy, even rocks! 🙂 Rocks are a denser energy than we are but they are still comprised of energy. Everything is energy including our bodies and our thoughts! And with energy comes expansion. It goes hand and hand.

When we constrict our energy we may feel ‘depressed’, ‘compressed’ or ‘stifled’. When we expand our energy we feel amazing and this expansion causes growth to happen, both in our energy field and in our lives. Expansion is energy in motion just as an e-motion is energy in motion. Expression is the opposite of depression.

The Key To Expansion

If there was one key to expanding and growing 𝙞𝙩 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙗𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙜𝙚𝙩 𝙀𝙓𝘾𝙄𝙏𝙀𝘿! This is another form of energy in motion.

We need to get excited about life and living. In this way we are expressing our divine energy and creativity and this will always lead to a more enriched life.

Honor your soul and your soul’s desires and do so with excitement. Both you and your soul will love you for it. 🙂

Have a great day everyone!

cancer, Death & Dying, Happiness, happy, My Cancer Journey

On Happiness & The Regrets of The Dying & How I Have Learned To Choose Happy in Spite of It All…

Choosing thoughts has been something I have been teaching and practicing for many years. And now at this point in my life (my cancer journey), it has come into play even more so for me. If I don’t CHOOSE happy thoughts, I suffer A LOT! And I don’t like suffering!

One of my favorite books of all time and one that I refer to a lot is Bronnie Ware’s “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying”.

There are 5 top regrets people have at the end of their life in general and the number 5 regret she learned from people dying is “I wish I had chosen to be happy”! Wow! I think that is my favorite of the 5. You can read more about all five here:

Not Easy But Gets Easier!

Now, I am not going to tell you that this is easy to do, but I can promise you that the more you do it, the easier it gets. This is probably why I am finding it quite easy in a situation that many people would find it very challenging in and rightly so! I have been ‘practicing’ this for awhile so it is easier for me because of that, but one can start at any time which is the good news!

NOW is all we have..

Choosing Happy means we let go of as much stuff as we can in our mental mind. An old memory? Tell yourself that it is the past and no longer exists but only in your mind and let it go. You need space for HAPPINESS NOW! NOW is all we have. Don’t let the old crap take up space and take away from now. Remember life is short….

Someone says something to you that you feel is hurtful or offensive? CHOOSE not to personalize it and let it go as fast as you can and move on. The faster we can do this, the more content we are. The longer we hang on to it and dwell on it, the more it grows and the more pain we feel.

Get Inspired to CHOOSE HAPPY!

I hope that you get inspired to ‘choose happy’ today and as much as you can. I know that for me, it is GAME ON! I want to squeeze as much JOY as I can out of my time left here on earth… and I hope that you do too!

Have a great day everyone!
