self-love, thoughts are things

A Better YOU!

Picture of a woman with freckles and blue eyes and a quote “The best way to become a better you is to change the way you think and your attitude!

What About YOU?

How is your attitude toward yourself? Are you in alignment with who you want to be?

Once again, this is a lot about self-love. When we can have a positive attitude about ourselves and when we think positive thoughts about ourselves, we activate the frequency of love and acceptance which is a beautiful thing. 🙂

I hope you spend some time today appreciating and loving YOU!

Be A Thought Thinker

Maggie’s Quote: “BE a thought thinker and now YOU are in charge!”

Be The Boss of Your Thoughts!

Be a thought thinker and you will be in charge of your own life! Thoughts are tools for us to use as we will.

Thoughts are the magic wands of the creative workshop in our minds! Thoughts are to be honed and crafted for the task at hand.

If you find yourself thinking negative thoughts, change them!

Step 1 is to identify that the thoughts that you are thinking are not making you feel good.

Step 2 is to declare that you realize and recognize that this is so.

Step 3 is to declare that you wish to choose new thoughts and then do it.

For example, maybe you think that the people in your life are not supporting you and it makes you feel unloved and unworthy. Change your thoughts to supporting thoughts so that you start supporting yourself first! ie. “I am not sure that the people in my life are really intentionally trying not to support me, maybe they are preoccupied with their own battles, but either way I am going to support me right now and in this moment! And I will start by telling a new story about what I think is happening and my story or thoughts around this go like this….. and then tell a new and improved version that is positive and becomes an asset to you, not a detriment.

For example maybe something like this. “I understand that everyone in life is going through stuff right now. I am not the only one and I can’t control the actions of others but I can control my own. So with that said today I am going to support and love myself a little more. Hey, maybe I will go for a walk and show myself that I do care about my health and well-being. 🙂

The main point in all of this is that you consciously choose and craft your thoughts around those things that especially are causing you pain first and foremost. We want to move away from pain and fear so that we can start attracting positive thoughts and feelings about our life and in turn thrive rather than just survive.

Own Your Happiness!!!

“To live happily is an inward power of the soul”.

Marcus Aurelius

We have all heard it before… ‘happiness is an inside job’. 🙂 And we can never be reminded enough.

We are more powerful than we can even imagine. We just need to own it!

Gratitude, serving others, thoughts are things

A New Twist on Gratitude!

A comment I made on a Facebook Posts in regard to what I am grateful for: “When I learned that thoughts are things and I then became Empowered and FREE!”

I am sure we have all seen how people, myself included, have made posts on Facebook or on other social media platforms asking people to mention what they are grateful for that day.

Well this was the answer I gave today and I love it!

This is so true! When I learned that thoughts are things and I could use my thoughts in any way that I wanted, I was FREE! I was free to be me. I was free of the thoughts that cause me pain because I could let those ‘things’ go and choose new ones. I was free, free, free as a bird!

Happy man with his arms out and his back to us with lots of birds around him… he looks FREE

New Level!

I am also taking this whole gratitude thing to a new level. For example, instead of being grateful for the things and experiences in my life, which I am, I am also grateful for the things that I can do for other people!!!!

Just yesterday I posted in response to one of those types of posts that I was happy that I could bring JOY to other people. Now this way of thinking has taken my Gratitude Thinking to a whole new level!

What are you grateful for that you can do for others? What are you grateful for that you can do for the world?

🙂 I hope you take some time today to get into this next level of gratitude and may the force be with you.

Have a great day everyone!

Law of Attraction, Mindset, thoughts are things

Thoughts Are Tools & It’s Cool!

A smiling man holding hammers with more hammers in the background and the quote by Maggie Holbik “Thoughts are just tools for us to use to our advantage. Just like a hammer can build a house or destroy a house, use your thougths wisely”.

Thoughts Are Tools!

Thoughts are things and tools are things. Each of them can be used to build or to destroy.

When one understands this, it becomes apparent that it is best to CHOOSE thougths to help with the building of a better day or even a better moment. We can choose thoughts moment by moment and these thoughts build our life.

Thoughts are things and have a frequency. Like-minded thoughts will attract more like-minded thoughts and they will ‘build’, just like tools help to ‘build’ things like houses.

Do you want to know an easy example of like thoughts attracting more like thoughts? Okay. Think of a song you like in your head. Hear it, sing it in your mind and get in the groove…….

Now watch how that song is going to get stuck in your head!!!! You are going to keep attracting the frequency of that song because you put it in there and now it keeps attracting like-minded thoughts aka the song!

Now that is something to think about 😉 😉

I hope that you use your thoughts for your highest good and as always if you are struggling and need help, make sure you reach out. Sometimes we just can’t change our thoughts and we are in a dark place and that is okay. Know that help is out there. Talk to someone you trust, or your doctor or health professional.

Have an amazing day everyone and happy thought choosing. 🙂

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!

More About YOUR Power & Using Your Image*ination

Dreams

Yesterday afternoon my honey and I were chatting and I told him about this crazy dream I had. I shared the details with him and we both laughed.

He and I both knew the people in the dream so it was extra funny. We marveled at how detailed it was. I said to Don “Yes, you just can’t make this stuff up” and we chuckled.

But the reality is we do make this stuff up! If you are a person who remembers your dreams, are you not amazed at the stuff you come up with? And it all seems so real.

Cause guess what? It is real! This is the secret to creation my friends.

Now your dream may not be real in your life but it is the same process to create whatever you want in your life.

We must image it or imagine it which is bringing an image forth and on the forefront, and then with feeling we see ourselves participating as though that image or scene has already manifested.

If we can do this in a dream while unconscious, we certainly must be able to consciously create images in our mind and apply feeling to them. It is really not that hard. I call it my workshop.

First Thing in the Morning

The first thing I do in the morning is work in my workshop aka my mind. I know that I will get more accomplished in that workshop to start my day than in any physical space!

The real ‘work’ is in the imagination. If can see see it, I can create it. If I can see it I can believe it.

And I cannot stress enough, you must use the power of Love. Love is the secret sauce. When you love what you are seeking, or where you are working, or what you are planning, or what you are creating, or the thought of your future, you attract all of the good things around that topic to you!

Love is the glue of attraction. It makes everything stick!

So I hope you keep your images clear and crisp, your feelings around them clear and crisp and strong, and that you get excited and feel love around it all, and then watch the magic happen!

Passion is the force of love exuding itself towards your desired outcome, so get really passionate okay? 🙂

YOU Are The Power!

“You are the most powerful magnet in the Universe! You contain a magnetic power within you that is more powerful than anything in this world, and this unfathomable power is emitted through your thoughts.” Bob Doyle

Do you really realize how powerful you are? I know it and I know how powerful I am also.  In fact, I own this power. I like it. I use it and I work with it every day!

It really is soooo simple. Use your thoughts as the tools they are and make sure when you are working in your workshop aka ‘your mind’ you are using the proper tools.

And that would be the thoughts that you use and choose that are for your highest good and are for your best.

Also, very important, when it comes to the law of attraction, love is what attracts so you must LOVE what you are doing. Just like a bear loves honey and a bee a flower… it is that loving of it that pulls it to it or draws it forth.

I hope that you found this helpful and be sure to have an amazing day!

faith, thoughts are things, trust, worry, Worry Less

The Power of Faith & Trust… Oh So Good!

“God hasn’t called me to be successful. He’s called me to be faithful.” – Mother Teresa

Faithful & Committed

As many of you know, I continually study topics around manifesting, creating, and on designing one’s ideal life.

No matter what I study, there is always an element of faith and trust that is necessary in the magical formulas available to us for creating what we want in our lives.

When we have faith or when we trust, it produces the energy of positive expectation and a belief or knowing that what we want to manifest into our lives, is indeed on its way.

I have learned to lead with trust and faith. For example, as a landlord I trust that I will find the perfect tenants for my units. As a business owner, I trust that I will help the people who most need what I have to offer.

Most of all though, I decided a long time ago to just trust that all things work out for me for my highest good and it works! The more I trust, the more everything flows!

Worry

When we worry, we attract more things to cause us worry. Worry is fear expressing itself and is not a pleasant emotion or energy.

Trust and Faith on the other hand, have energies of love and expansion and they feel GREAT!

Worry uses up our precious time and the sweetness of life.

Even anazlyzing the past is a form of worry and attracts more things to worry about now, in the present. We don’t need to figure out why things were the way they were, or why someone told us that when we were 7, or whatever. We can choose to use our free-will and not analyze or try to figure out what caused us pain and then in turn let it cause us more pain again today! Choose to let it go.

I see the time I have left on earth as a window and we know the window of time moves quickly. I personally want to have as much sweetness and as much JOY as I can in the time I have left. Therefore, I trust that things work out for me and I do my absolute best to banish fear and worry out of my life.

I consciously and with purpose use and manage my thoughts and come up with thoughts that are helping me, serving me, making me happy, etc. Thoughts are things and we can create any ones we want! We pick thoughts. Now how cool is that?

I hope you can let more trust and faith into your life and that YOU take charge of YOUR thoughts. You are the boss of YOU so make sure you are a good one. 🙂

And as always, if you are struggling with anxiety or fear, make sure you reach out for help if you feel you need some. Reaching out for help when you need it is actually a sign of strength and it too has the frequency of faith and trust because you are sending out a message of positive expectation about getting the help that you need to feel better and that is a very good thing, so never be afraid to ask for help!

Have a great day everyone!

Don’t Invite The Nasties To Dinner!!!

“Know that you can always choose the thoughts you allow in your mind, so make the effort to replace disempowering, weakening thoughts with those of a higher spiritual frequency. It is your choice!”

– Dr. Wayne Dyer

You know I write a lot about this and I will continue to do so. Thoughts are things and we can CHOOSE which ones we want to focus on.

Yes, I know thoughts just randomly pop into our minds and that is okay. It is the ones we entertain that matter.

Think of it this way, if you had a dinner party and some of the guests that you invited were not suited to your way of being, or they were rude or nasty or anything that was negative. Would you keep inviting these people to your table?

A woman with a knife and fork in her hands with an angry look on her face.

NO! So why would we do it with our thoughts?

There is a magical combo that works well but it means that you have to practice self-care as well.

When you have a thought or multiple thoughts that are not serving you, recognize it, and then CHOOSE a new thought. However, with that said it is much easier to do when you are in a place of ‘feeling good’.

Do Things That Make YOU Feel Good

Therefore, do things every day that make you feel good and that show nurturing and caring for your body, mind and spirit. For example, I started my morning by reading more on the power of gratitude in my life. I am sipping on warm lemon water now and I have some peaceful and Zen type of music on.

It doesn’t matter ‘what’ you do, just do things that show you that you are sacred and loved!!!!!

When you feel better about yourself it is much easier to pivot your thoughts when those nasties arise.

So I leave you with the goal of two things today:

  1. Do MORE things for YOU today that nurture you and make you FEEL GOOD
  2. Consciously be AWARE of your thoughts and start replacing the nasties with BETTER thoughts.

Okay, I hope you found this helpful and have a great day everyone!

And please remember that if you are really struggling, it is always OK to reach out for help. That my friends is nurturing yourself too!

Big Hugs to All!

Dealing With Anxious Thoughts

“You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you”. Dan Millman

You might be thinking the above statement is an impossible feat, but I encourage you to think of thoughts in another way and it might be helpful for you.

Thoughts Are Things

We often say that “thoughts are things” and it is true. So if this is indeed true and thoughts are just things just like a coffee cup is a thing, a laptop is a thing, a t-shirt is a thing, etc. etc.

So with that said, if things are things, we may have things in our lives, but we don’t become our things.

Instead we USE our things. We use the coffee cup to drink coffee, or water, or tea, or to drink whatever we decide from it.

We wear the t-shirt but we don’t become obsessed with the t-shirt. We use it for a purpose and we take it off when we want to or when we are done using it for the day.

Therefore, if we looked at thoughts more as things that we can use for what we choose, just like the coffee cup, or the t-shirt we can take them off when we don’t want to think them anymore, just like the t-shirt.

Or in kind, like the laptop we can use our thoughts to formulate sentences, paragraphs, or even entire stories just like a laptop and its programs have the power to do!!

You get the idea here. USE your thoughts (the things) for your highest good and stop using them when they are no longer serving your or causing you pain.

CHOOSE New Thoughts!

The easiest way to pivot your thoughts is to divert them to new ones…. just like things. If you were wearing a t-shirt and spilled something on it, you would go and change it!

So change your thoughts to new ones!

Here is a link to one of all-time favorite posts I did about changing your thoughts:

And more from my “Thougths are Things” Collection that you might enJOY and find helpful.

I hope that you found this helpful. I really enJOYed it myself and as always surprised myself while writing it. I really do believe we are just channels when we write, paint, do art, sing, or whatever form of creative art we choose. It’s fun stuff and I hope you do more of that too! 🙂

Have a great day everyone!
