Are You A Leader Who is Giving Wings To Others?

“Leaders instill in their people a hope for success and a belief in themselves. Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals.” Unknown

This video is taken from my FB Live Series at the start of COVID-19. It explores our part in nurturing the talent of the youth around us. Real leaders and visionaries recognize talent very quickly. The true authentic leader knows that they give wings to others and when they do that, their legacy will carry great and positive karma in the future.

What legacy do you want to leave behind as a leader?

Part 11 – What Living Half-Way Looks Like…

Sometimes, we get comfortable living a life which is unfulfilling. It is important to be aware of our emotions because we are the only ones who can take responsibility for fixing ourselves. We don’t necessarily have to leave our relationships… we can turn inward and take responsibility for our actions.

Here is our 7th podcast – Part 11 of What Living Half-Way Looks Like. This is the case of Ken, a 50 year old man who seemed to have lost his way. What advice would you give to Ken?

Sometimes, we get comfortable living a life which is unfulfilling. It is important to be aware of our emotions because we are the only ones who can take responsibility for fixing ourselves. We don’t necessarily have to leave our relationships… we can turn inward and take responsibility for our actions.

Being indifferent about our lives brings no joy.

I Choose Love

As hard as it may seem… choosing love over hate, frees your soul.

The thought that God loves me unconditionally gives me permission to the same for others. A wonderful friend of mine called a few days ago to ask me how I am able to always find good in people, without judging them and meeting them wherever they are in their lives. My personal philosophy is that we are all people in-progress…. moving towards the light. Our paths are different. A person’s bad behaviours doesn’t not define the whole person. The worst person you can find has good in them. I am so far from being perfect… but God’s love does not judge me based on my perfections. God’s love also embraces my imperfections. This love is so pure and is not dependent on anything I do or don’t do. That love sustains me and is constant in my life.
When I think of judging another harshly, I look inwards myself. Because what I see in myself, I see in others.
Our lives and journeys go beyond what we see in the physical world. In the spiritual world, only love exists. Hate carries too heavy a price for me to bear. I choose to send love back to everyone because I know for sure that in the grand scheme of life, all what I give to the universe comes back to me a hundred fold. I live love – it is that simple.

Free yourself from holding grudges against others.
It is not worth the precious time we have to enjoy this beautiful planet. Take ownership for your life. Make it a beautiful one.

Love,

Mags

An Invitation For Newness And Rejuvenation

An easy way to elevate your energy and vibration is to create a clean and inviting space where you love. It opens your heart and soul to receive. Any form of cleansing is an invitation for newness and rejuvenation.

Happy Sunday and wishing everyone a beautiful day. In my part of the world, it is raining. After a restful morning in bed, we had a lovely brunch and then I ventured to do some cleaning – putting away summer stuff and preparing to welcome another favourite season – Fall.

There is something profoundly beautiful about cutting flowers from my garden and bring them indoors. It lifts the space immediately. An easy way to elevate your energy and vibration is to create a clean and inviting space where you love. It opens your heart and soul to receive. Any form of cleansing is an invitation for newness and rejuvenation.

Have an awesome Sunday.

How do we forgive those who hurt us?

Forgiveness…. this can be a heavy word for some. We are all vulnerable to being hurt at some point in our lives. One thing I know for sure, based on my own life experiences, is that forgiving frees my soul. It creates space for me to attract more beautiful things in my life rather than to harbour hurts which drain my energy.

Here is a short video from Mags Morning Inspiration to inspire your thoughts on forgiveness.

#4 Soul Inspiring Places

I enjoy travelling. It is as simple as this.

At the start of COVID-19, I decided on one goal for myself – this is to develop my digital skills. This was in April 2020. Since then I have done several things including starting a Mags FB Live session at 9:00a.m. which I later branded as #magsmorninginspiration and then a new series #Soulinspiringplaces. Both of these have now been added to Mags Magazine.
Working through this process has been rewarding, educational, thought provoking and has made me become more aware of the story teller inside of me which is longing to be more visible to the world.
This project kept me motivated through COVID-19 and will continue to be a focus for me. It is not perfect yet but I learnt to let go of perfection a long time ago and embrace myself, my life and my experiences as a work in progress… always excited about my ‘what’s next?’
Did you set any goals during the COVID-19 period?

Here is my latest video: #4 Soul Inspiring Places – Britannia Park

Would You Give a Stranger Your Car?

I am grateful to meet earth angels like Ben and his family. It is admirable that a total stranger would hand over his car keys and trust that everything would be fine.

On the evening of May 29th, my daughter Dawn and I went to Canadian Tire to buy a bike for her. After a long and painful wait, we finally got the bike. However, when we got to our car, the bike would not fit in the car.

The gentleman in this picture was sitting in his car, watching us struggle with the bike. He came over and offered to help us but the bike was simply too long to fit into our car. Dawn suggested that she could ride home but it was too far and she was not familiar with that part of the city. We both felt frustrated. The man’s wife and sister-in-law came to help but to no avail!

Mentally, I started running a list of names of friends who had large vehicles but unfortunately not a single person I could think of had a large enough vehicle to accomodate the bike.

“How far do you live?” the gentleman asked.

“About 15 minutes away,” I responded.

“Here is the key to my car. My car can take the bike. Why don’t you use my car to take the bike home and come back here to meet me. My wife and sister-in-law will be shopping and I am sure that they will be in the shop for a long time!”

I was not sure what to make of the offer. Dawn and I looked at each other in confusion. Was this man for real? Was he really giving us the keys to his car when we had no idea who he was? What about Covid-19? So many thoughts run through my mind as I stared at the bike, my daughter, the man and his car. Realistically, what were our options? The bike would certainly have to get home… in someone else’s vehicle! After some persuasion, I nervously accepted the offer, took the keys and we transferred the bike to his car.

Dawn and I drove to our house nervously. I can’t remember when last I drove someone else’s car. You have no idea how much cortisol flowed through my body to the point where my mouth was completely dry! I prayed fervidly to God to help us get home safely. We were so grateful when we arrived home!

On the way back to drop off the car, Dawn stopped at the grocery story to pick up a hanging basket for the family. We got back to Canadian Tire safely. I have never been more relieved. She gave them the flowers which we had to insist that they had to accept. We chatted for a while and at the end, the man whose name is Ben, said: “We do this kind of thing all the time, helping others. Just pay it forward.”

I am grateful to meet earth angels like Ben and his family. It is admirable that a total stranger would hand over his car keys and trust that everything would be fine.

Would you give a stranger your car in a situation like this?

With all what is going on in the world right now, we need more people like Ben and his family. May the Creator of this amazing universe continue to bless them.

Mags Magical Wishing Path

My imagination gets activated during the hot summer months. Gardening is like meditation to my soul. If I have any problems at all, by the end of a day in the garden, my problems are less relevant and in some cases I’ve some solution or even forgotten about them! My charming little garden provide me with an unlimited canvas where I can add, subtract, multiply and divide plants based on colours, texture, blooming times – and even thinking ahead to how it will look like in the years to come. My imagination is so busy creating that as Micheangelo said: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

“The world is a canvas for your imagination. You are the painter. There are NO RULES. Get to work” Fearless Soul.

Last year I started working on a path in my garden which is now called Mags Magical Wishing Path! When I walk along the path, I feel so childlike! At nights the garden is magical and whimsical with little lamps that glow in the dark. As I step on each stone, I like to make wishes! If the fairies come to visit at night, I hope that they will catch all of my wishes and weave their magic spells to make them come true! Would that not be awesome?

Our imaginations are powerful! We can activate our imaginations by creating spaces and places where were can dream and allow our souls to flow without being interrupted!

If you had a Magical Wishing Path, what would you be wishing for?

Here are some of my favourite imagination quotes:

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” Albert Einstein

“Live out of your imagination, not your history.” Stephen Covey

“I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.” Dr. Seuss

What Will You Be Doing This Long Weekend?

One of my soul projects at the start of Covid-19 was to develop my digital skills and have the confidence to do some live shows and bring together like minded people over zoom to share views on various topics! This has kept me busier than I could have imagined but it is reinforcing for me that “when we are aligned with our soul mission, everything falls in place!”

We are at the end of another week and I want to wish everyone a Happy Victoria Day weekend! Victoria Day is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25 in every province and territory. It honours Queen Victoria’s birthday.

I will be missing the Tulip Festival very much this year but I am happy to have some tulips in my front garden! Here are some photos of my tulips.

Summer is my favourite season. No question about that! Yesterday I was bursting with happiness as I shopped for soil and compost and gleefully landed the bags on my lawn! The summer months feel like a huge open canvas which I can decorate and paint as my mind, soul and heart merge in a harmonious symphony with nature. I cannot wait to get my hands in the dirt, rearrange my plants, discover what is popping above ground from the many bulbs which I planted last summer. I have already identified the garlic plants! I am super excited that I will be harvesting garlic this summer! I have lots of seeds to plant – lettuce, onions, peppers, tomatoes…. and all this planting will start this weekend!

One of my soul projects at the start of Covid-19 was to develop my digital skills and have the confidence to do some live shows. I also wanted to facilitate some soul-discussions over zoom and were able to do a couple of great ones including ‘The Global Connect’ which brought a group of amazing artists together! We also did another one with Wilson Jn. Baptiste, exploring the Power of Language During Covid-19. There are more to come! This has kept me busier than I could have imagined but it is reinforcing for me that “when we are aligned with our soul mission, everything falls in place!”

Free your Soul

The soul knows why it came and when it has to leave.

When it leaves the body, it is free.

Don’t regret things in life after you have given your very best. Regrets only come when you know that you should have done something that you did not do.

If something which you needed to do was not done (because it was perhaps out of your control) please forgive yourself and let it go.

Avoid living your life with regrets by doing what you know you need to do. You know it. Do it. Live with a free heart and leave this world with a free soul.

Here is one of my latest videos – Life is Perfect.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Love,

Mags
