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,

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.

Replace Worry With Trust

We worry about what happened yesterday. We worry about today. We worry about tomorrow. Worrying is a habit which we learn and one which sucks our emotional wellbeing. We can slowly and surely replace worry with new habits like trusting that everything will be fine, even if we don’t understand how. The more we trust God, our Creator, the Universe, in meeting all of our needs, the lighter and happier we become. Trust that all of your needs will be met.

Kenny Rogers. I believe that our souls connect long before the physical manifestations

How I got to Kenny Rogers Farewell Tour is a little bit of a miracle, magic and manifestation – a series of events which the universe seem to conspire to make it all happen! Here is the story – more evidence of how we are all connected in ways that we perhaps cannot even begin to imagine. I believe that our souls make the connections long before the manifestations in our lives.

I woke up this morning saddened by the news of Kenny Roger’s passing. My sincere condolences to his family and all of his fans. As a fan of Kenny Rogers since my teenage years, I know that I will miss his physical presence here and I feel very fortunate that I was able to be a part of his live audience during his Farewell Tour in Ottawa in June 2017.

How I got to Kenny Rogers Farewell Tour is a little bit of a miracle, magic and manifestation – a series of events which the universe seem to conspire to make it all happen! Here is the story – more evidence of how we are all connected in ways that we perhaps cannot even begin to imagine. I believe that our souls make the connections long before the manifestations in our lives.

In 2017, Wilson Jn Baptiste and I were celebrating my birthday @ the Nordic Spa and we were listening to jazz music by a band with Jordan David. During the performance, Wilson asked them to do a special rendition for me. Jordan David, who I believe was promoting or managing the band or promoting the Jazz Festival in Ottawa (cannot remember) came to me to wish me happy birthday, gave us his card and asked us to call him if we wanted to go to any show during the jazz festival in Ottawa. I did not make much of it and completely forgot about the card. Later that summer, I found out that Kenny Rogers was playing during the jazz festival but the tickets were also expensive. I remember posting on FB asking if anyone had tickets to give away. I had no idea that my tickets were right in my bag!

The night before the concert, I suddenly remembered that Jordon had given me his business card with the promise of a pass to the Jazz festival. It was almost midnight. I sent Jordan an email – praying that he would see it in the morning. I knew that he was also busy with the jazz festival so the chances of seeing email would be almost impossible. But you know what – I got a response right away and he made arrangements for us to see the show! The show will remain etched in my memory forever! We sat under the stars that night with hundreds of others from Ottawa and enjoyed every moment with Kenny Rogers.

Here is a little recording which I did that night: Kenny Rogers Farewell Tour, Ottawa

You will be missed dear Kenny Rogers! Rest in peace and let your spirit continue to shine on us.

Thank you Jordan David and Wilson Jn Baptiste. This was one of the best birthday gifts ever. It was so strange how the series of somehow unconnected events all came together – but in our grand universe – all things are connected.

Embrace your longings. Trust that your soul has made the connections long before the manifestations.

Be well.

Love,

Magdalene

Angels and Miracles are all around you…

I know for sure that angels surround me, protect me and bless me. I know for sure that the universe bends its laws for me. I know for sure that miracles exist because the force of God lives through me, expands outside of me and touches heaven and earth, darkness and light, peace and chaos…all together for the Glory of God.

Last week I realized that I did not have my driver’s license which I needed for an important task. After a thorough search in jacket pockets, shelves, purses – everywhere I could look, I surrendered it to my angels to find it for me. The problem was not just not having the license but the timing of what I needed to do with it. That evening when I surrendered it, I received a message from my friend Christina Hearns who said that she found my license at her house, where I was a few weeks ago. I have no idea how I managed to leave it there. However, the timeliness of it could not be more perfect and I stand in deep gratitude for the presence of earth and heavenly angels in my life.
I know for sure that angels surround me, protect me and bless me. I know for sure that the universe bends its laws for me. I know for sure that miracles exist because the force of God lives through me, expands outside of me and touches heaven and earth, darkness and light, peace and chaos…all together for the Glory of God.
Surrender what is bothering you today. You are never alone and the one who created you out of nothing, made worlds out of nothing, knows YOU more than anyone will ever know. Find the miracles of life all around you and grow your faith beyond what your eyes can see and your ears can hear. Deep, deep within you, lies a force, a presence, a knowingness… and when you touch it, nothing will ever be the same again.

Anticipation is the fuel which unlocks amazing possibilities to create an exciting future!

Since I first saw the picture of an amazing caramel pecan cheesecake about six weeks ago, which my friend Janet shared on her Facebook timeline, I have been thinking of it relentlessly.  I got all the ingredients  but with so many other competing Christmas goodies, my caramel pecan cheesecake got put on hold although I kept on  anticipating what it would taste like when I finally bit into it!

The anticipated treat

Somehow, everything aligned perfectly well for me to bake this cheesecake this morning much to the delight of my kids who have waited in anticipation of this cheesecake too!  Cheesecake takes a few hours to settle in the refrigerator before it can be eaten… so the very first question they asked was, “What time will we be able to have it?”  It is both funny and delightful to have my three grown-up young adults sitting around the dinner table, wishing that 7 O’clock would come sooner.  As soon as the clock hit 7, they all jumped up, thrilled that we were finally going to have that cake!  When I presented it on the table, Jelan immediately said, “It looks like we are in a restaurant!”  He took a photo of it and twitted it (my cheesecake!).  We all devoured it slowly, savouring the taste and having seconds even though we were painfully aware of the loads of calories it contained.  It tasted so delicious…I even think that the anticipation added more pleasure to the experience.

It was Nicholas Sparks, in Three Weeks With my Brother, who said, “Never forget that anticipation is an important part of life.  Work’s important, family’s important, but without excitement, you have nothing.  You’re cheating yourself if you refuse to enjoy what’s coming.”  And I completely agree with him!

How do you build anticipation in your life? Heighten your anticipation  levels by thinking of something so enjoyable that you/your loved ones would completely enjoy by stretching the time out so that there is not immediate gratification.  Let yourself long for it some more and let those around you look forward to this anticipated treat. Place little clues around each day… have  conversations around that thing… show photographs…. In my case, with the caramel pecan cheesecake, I am sure that I spoke about that cake every single day for six weeks. There is no way that the kids could have missed it – eventually it became something that they started looking forward to.
The power to anticipate is key for our survival – not just for silly things like a caramel pecan cheesecake but for us to also move our lives in the direction we yearn for.  If we can develop the skills to look a bit into the future by taking stock of our current situation, we can solve potential problems and put ourselves at an advantageous position.

TuneIn to the amazing power within you to anticipate your soul’s desires.  StepUp and take some small action daily to help you move eagerly towards your anticipated desire.  It can be as simple as caramel pecan cheesecake, to getting the guy or girl or your dream, to owning our own company, to renewing your marriage bliss, to uniting your family,  to owning an empire!  In your mind’s eyes, can you see yourself getting that anticipated treat?  Can you taste it? Can you almost touch it? The more real it is to your mind, the greater the chances are for it to become a reality. Anticipation is the fuel which unlocks amazing possibilities to create an exciting future!

Have The Courage To Ask For What You Desire – Every Small Request Can Be Manifested

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Have you ever thought of something and it manifests right away – even when it was a fleeting wish and there was no real possibility for it to happen? I love those magic moments of divine synchronicity.

“I wish a taxi would come along” I thought wishfully. It was bitterly cold and I had underestimated the walking distance to get to my destination. At that very moment a taxi turned around the corner and stopped right at my feet. Someone got out of the taxi and I jumped in. A feeling of deep gratitude settled over me. I thanked God and the universe over and over and over for always taking such amazing care of me. It sounds too good to be true – but this type of situation is a common reality for me which is hard to explain.

It affirms the infinite possibilities that exist and the mystical realm of life that is unexplainable and in some cases completely illogical. My first real experience of manifesting something big in my life happened when I was thirteen. At that age, I started to test God’s power since “God knew all things and could do all things!” So, I gave God two challenges. One was to get a camera for me for my 13th birthday and the other was to travel to England before I was 18. Both looked impossible because we came from a poor family and I could not see any logical way that I would have those two things. I barely had books to go to school or shoes to walk with, so to think of a camera was like living in dreamland. And as for England – well, I did not have a faint idea of how that would be done.

Both of my requests were heard.

On the evening of my 13th birthday, as I walked along to road to buy bread from the local bakery – a usual routine, I met a doctor who volunteered in the local hospital. We had met each other a few times before. She stopped on her bicycle and we chatted. I told her that it was my birthday and right away she said “Why don’t you come up to the hospital? I have a gift for you!” Low and behold, she gave me a camera! I stood there shocked! (I can still remember the feeling!). God really heard me! No one else knew of my secret wish – it was only between God and I! For an entire year, I took photos in abundance. I loved my camera and best of all, after Dr. Michele completed her volunteering and went back to the USA, she developed all my films and posted the photos to me.

This event in my life was a MAJOR affirmation that I could ask for anything I wanted. God and the universe would hear me. Before my 18th birthday I continued to experience big and small miracles. The next challenge was met in another unexplainable way. At 17, I was attending Teacher’s Training College in St.Lucia. One day as I walked in the corridor, my English teacher, Mr. Allan Weeks, stopped me and asked, “How would you like to go to England?”
“What?” I asked, completely baffled. “Why would I go to England?” I asked.
“I am producing a play and you are the perfect match for the part. The play will be produced in England.”
Six months later, I was in England performing at the Commonwealth Institute with a great group of actors/actresses from St.Lucia. It was six months before my 18th birthday!

I have experienced so many, many manifestations of my thoughts and I like to call them “miracles”. They are all unexplainable and I am convinced that there is a formula unique to each of us that make things happen faster or slower. I believe that the formula is a combination of the mind and soul merging together. I have experienced manifestations / miracles at the speed of light – immediately from thought to manifestation. I have also experienced manifestations over a longer period and when I look back I can only thank the universe that what I asked for before did not happen earlier. When we trust in the great wisdom of the universe, we know that all things will happen as it should.

One thing I know without any uncertainty is that we need to ASK for what we want and don’t worry about when it will happen. Although we have to work towards what we want, I believe that if we are clear, then the universe arranges things in front of us to help our desires manifest. When we are not clear, it is hard to us to grab the opportunities, no matter how obvious they may be. Sometimes we ask for something and feel frustrated when it does not happen. It is not our job to worry about timing. The important thing is to ask and let it go. In time, all things work out for the best. The more we have that trust, more we invite miracles to happen in our lives.

TuneIn today to those things you secretly desire. Have the courage to ask for what you want, need or desire. Write them in a journal and keep checking with yourself now and then. As small miracles start manifesting in your life you will automatically StepUp to attract more and more of what you need to live an amazing life. Above all, keep on expressing gratitude each day, throughout the day, for all what you are blessed with. Abundance begins with a seed of gratitude.

Love,
