Going off routine may open new opportunities and new windows to your soul

Clustersyello flowersCluster of flowers

It is easy to fall into the same  routine day in and day out.  Wake up… coffee… gym… breakfast… work… colleagues… work…. colleagues…. drive home… dinner… bath…. bedtime…

Routines keep us safe and make our lives predictable. Getting off routine requires some level of effort.

Going off routines can bring a sudden burst of new energy and inspiration into our lives and it may even open new opportunities and windows to our soul.  I have learnt more about myself and the depth of my soul by going off routines and simply following an intuition to do something different.  Do I get into trouble?  A whole lot.  Is  it worth it?  Most definitely!

Today was a great example of going off routine. I held a workshop at the University of Ottawa in the morning.  Normally, I take a taxi back to my office but I decided to walk back – which took about an hour. On the way back, I discovered this great field of black eye Susan’s right next to my office, at the Museum of Nature.  I was pleasantly surprised because I love those flowers.  It also jerked my mind to think that although it is so close to me, I had not even noticed it because I have kept my usual work-home routine for the last few weeks.  I have even also spent my lunch hour indoors catching up on work or having lunch with my colleagues.

Summer is a great time to add a bit more to our usual routines and to get out and discover what is around us.

Try a walk at lunch time… take a route which  you have not taken before!

Go out for a day trip! Discover a city which you have not been to before.

Have an awesome day!

Cheers,

Magdalene

Thanks to everyone who made the Launch of Soulful Encounters Successful and Memorable!

 

There are moments in life which are captured in our memories forever.  As Rosa Parks said:  “Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others.”

Mags Birthday best

The launch of Soulful Encounters, on May 25th, along with my birthday celebration is a memory that will live in my mind forever because I know for sure, that I am contributing to the works of many great souls who have graced the surface of this earth, long before I was born.  I am equally certain, that the memories which are created in the souls who are being touched by our work, will in turn, continue to play their part in creating more soulful encounters in this lifetime, to grace the planet with more love and care, as we all thrive to live with both PASSION and PURPOSE.

I want to thank everyone for their wonderful contributions towards the launching of the Magazine – whether this came through sponsorship, purchasing a magazine, sending messages to wish us a successful launch, sharing or liking on social media, making a telephone call or turning up at the launch. I want to specially thank Wilson for uncovering the box of dreams and giving me the support which I needed to bring life to these long, buried dreams. Our contributors to the Magazine, our graphic designer Mila Gerstentien and photographers Nyamulola Kambanji and Kores Musuni were critical to the Magazine production.  Each adventure has forced us to step out of our comfort zones.  Some moments have not been easy but I would not exchange the experience for anything else.

20160525_183734

When we started on this journey Magsthree years ago, I had no idea where it would lead, who we would meet or what the results would be.  What I knew then, was that I was being placed in a soul space which needed expansion and the voice in my head kept on saying: “Don’t die with your passion inside of you.” Talking about the soul is not something which is an everyday conversation, yet, SOUL is my everyday experience with life and with people.  I have spent many sleepless nights wondering how I could create a simple way to help others understand the journey of the soul and to also make the connection between the every day ordinary, routines and the SOUL.  I have thought long and hard about how I can help others take meaning from their day to day encounters and to be more aware of the blessings that are exchanged – whether it is a positive or negative soul encounter. I believe that as we make these connections and see that our paths are connected to a force which is so much greater than ourselves, then our fears are also released and we are able to commit and embrace our unique path with greater grace, gratitude and acceptance.  As we receive more and more testimonials about Soulful Encounters and the events which we have held, I am convince that we are on the right path.

Each of our speakers  shared soulful encounters in their lives and I am truly grateful that they allowed us to have a glimpse of how their experiences have shaped their lives today.  It was inspiring to listen to how Laura is using her gifts as a psychic to help others; how Rima got fired from Willis College in one moment and the next moment, she was the owner of the College.

MengsWe were all deeply engaged with Mengis’s story as he walked us through his life journey and how he got freed from prison and walked through a jungle with a total stranger for eight hours. His journey to Canada is a true testimonial  of the journey of the soul across many continents.

Trevor speaking

We were inspired by Trevor’s deep love for Dale and how this translates into their everyday existence and shows up in their coaching others to live great lives.  He recited his poem, CLOUD 9, which is  featured in Soulful Encounters.

Emily speaking

Emily touched all of our hears as she spoke about her relationship with Roger, how they met and the small and big things which he does every day to make her feel loved and safe in their relationship. She surprised him by giving him an AWARD for being the  BEST HUSBAND.

Very moving and touching was the personal story of  Margeret from Uganda who spoke about putting back the pieces of her life post Idi Amin.  Her desire to LIVE and not be DEAD is a true testimonial to how she LIVES her life and encourages others to do the same.  Her shared experiences of UGANDA is on our list of travelling destinations!

Thanks to  my long standing friend Angela for speaking from her heart about our soulful relationship over the years.  Our encounter from 13 years ago, as two total strangers, have become a beautiful and soulful relationship.

13256334_1608419406153099_1025084674582389575_n[1]Thanks to my friend  Lisa Anna Palmer who never ceases to amaze me for her energy and support towards my work and who best to talk about helping us all to LIVE our PASSIONS! Her donation of a book ‘365 Ways to Connect to your Soul’ was won by the son of Ranjith Mathews who has been extremely supportive of my work and publishing in Social Media.

13244852_1608419599486413_1706270855095149472_n[1]

I discovered things about each person that I never knew before and it reaffirmed to me, the power of our stories beyond our everyday job titles and responsibilities.  There is something deeper: something is at the core of our being. I went home thinking, “This was such a powerful experience to connect so many experiences and countries in one evening, through stories and soul energy.”  Our voices and experiences matter. Our stories matter.  Understanding the part which we have to play in our life journey matters and being able to share these with the world matter.  I feel really honoured and blessed to have shared that experience with everyone.

I want to say a special thank you to my colleagues, Gemma, Fouzia, Chinelo, Peggy and Aparna, who are wonderful friends as well and who came out to support and volunteer their time at the event. Thanks to Ross and my children Jelan and Dawn for also volunteering.  Their support was priceless.  Thanks to Ranjith for his work in photographing and social media that evening as well as Zoran for his vidography.

NabilaA  special thank you to Nabila Islam who volunteered countless hours of work in pulling together the technical aspects of the production.  She did great a great job, especially with the introduction to each of our speakers.

Through this blog, I want to publicly thank everyone and acknowledge their support in helping me to live my life mission… and I hope that by doing so… I am also helping each one to live their life mission as well.

The Magazine is a new product and I also want to ask for your feedback on how we could improve for future events; on how we can continue to market the Magazine so that it reaches the right audiences and how we can continue to build on what we have started.  I am learning to ASK for what I need and this is for my personal growth as I step out to embrace both my soul work and being an entrepreneur at the same time.

The photo below was taken just a couple of minutes after they stopped the show half-way to sing the first round of Happy Birthday to me and Rima made it so special with this huge bouquet of flowers and a gift.  To simply have all three of those great speakers on the stage with me, was the a wonderful gift in itself.

Thanks to my friend Leonetta who travelled from New York to be there for the launch!  This was a very special treat.  with monica

My writing journey to making myself more visible, started in 2011 after my mom’s death.  My motivation for indulging as much as I did was to ensure that when I died, everyone who knew me, could say that I lived my passion to the fullest.  My top passion in life is writing and since I made that decision, many other pieces in my life has fallen in place.  Lao Tzu said that the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step and truly, that is a fundamental truth in life.  Since that decision, we have traveled many miles across countries and cities, written many articles, published two Magazines, held five inspirational events in Ottawa and met people whom I would not have otherwise met on this journey.

So… here’s wishing all of us ALL WONDERFUL BLESSINGS as we embrace our soul journey and LIVE OUR BEST LIVES.

Thanks to our wonderful SPONSORS and Mr. Felix Grande for featuring me on CHUO before the Launch of Soulful Encounters.

Is clutter drowning the voice of your soul?

imagesW95IVIH6“A simple life is not seeing how little we can get by with—that’s poverty—but how efficiently we can put first things first. . . . When you’re clear about your purpose and your priorities, you can painlessly discard whatever does not support these, whether it’s clutter in your cabinets or commitments on your calendar. (148)”
Victoria Moran, Lit From Within: Tending Your Soul For Lifelong Beauty    

Clutter makes me tired. It takes away my good energy and makes me feel overwhelmed. Simple things which should take minutes, can take hours because the clutter clouds both my mind and my soul.  Yet, having a busy life and having young adults in a house is difficult to keep the place as clutter free as I would like. One of my strategies is to do a fifteen minute de-cluttering in the morning and in the evening when I get home.  Tackling small pieces at a time makes me feel in control – that I can start and complete it.

Flowers-on-Table-OpenTable[1]Here are a few things I did this week which has taken only 15 minutes and I feel that some new energy breathing into me.

I deleted FB contacts – groups or otherwise who post things that drain my energy.  Those include highly political groups, people who post obscenity, violence, pornography, abuse or always complain about something.  I have also deleted people from my timeline who have never liked, shared, commented or sent me a message.  It takes too much energy going through posts which prevents me from getting to the ones I really want to see.  I added new inspirational groups to my FB page.

I cleaned the kitchen bookshelf. I gave away some books which have not been used in the last five years.

I sorted out a stack of bills from last year and cleared the mail holder.  I filed all the ones for taxes in a beautiful box.

I cleared out one closet and gave away two bags of items to the donation bin. 

I cleaned the glass windows, doors and mirrors in the house.  What a difference clean, clear glass makes!

We made the bed before we left the house. It is so nice to come home to a bed all ready for me!

I delegated some of the tasks to other members of the family.  I used to do “express clean-ups” with my kids when they were younger.  We would time the clock for 15 minutes and tidy up as quickly as possible.

The wonderful, beautiful thing that happens when you rid yourself of the things that don’t see your worth? You make space in your life for all the glorious things you deserve.” Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass 

My goal is to have inspired spaces around me which are simple, beautiful, breathes life into me and inspires my soul to sing and do my life work. It is all possible with a bit of effort.

What would your inspired space look like?

Where is your soul most at peace?

Do you have control over your environment? 

Don’t try to do it all at once.  A little each day will ignite your passion to create that inspired space just for you!

Would I need more money or less money to afford my inspired lifestyle?

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” ~ Confucius

 

IMAG1883_BURST001

As I immerse myself more and more into the simple pleasures of life, I am almost dumbfounded about why and how we ended up complicating our lives with so much stuff, so much work, so much busyness, so much debt, so much clutter, so many wants and needs that don’t necessarily add more joy to our lives.

I love nature abundantly. It is where I find complete soulful rest. Recently, my partner and I went on a little adventure to a small village called Wakefield in Quebec.  As we walked along the waterfront, where the old steam train run many years ago, we saw those “summer-house boats” beautifully hinged along the coastline.  My heart missed a beat because it responded to this great desire I have within me to live close to the water in the simplest house possible.  I don’t think it can get simpler than this!

IMAG1875 - Copy

Looking at the simplicity of the house on the water, make me think:

How much stuff do we really need?

Could I live with just a few kilograms of stuff?  Some clothes, some basic pans and pots?  Basic furniture?

How great it would be to have less space to clean and a grand ocean to look at and more time to read and write?

What a relief it would be not to have a mortgage to pay!

How wonderful it would be to change my site each day and simply drift along the shoreline?

What would I need to afford this lifestyle?

It is said that the best things in life are free.  Well, I don’t think that is true anymore.  The lands and oceans were all given to us by our creator.  I wonder whether it was ever meant for us to OWN it.  We have developed such complex and expensive systems to simply own a piece of land – waterfront is so expensive! We are caught up in a lifestyle of wanting more – funny enough, the list never ends.  We bleed our souls to death because we have no time to attend to its yearnings because we are so busy with staying afloat with our everyday lives.

This day spent in Wakefield breathed  life back in my soul.  It cost nothing to walk along the waterfront or to spend those long hours trailing along the water in the utmost gratitude for the sun that kissed my skin, the fresh air, the beautiful rustic fall colors, the sound of the waterfall and the wind that occasionally blew through my hair. At the end of it, I felt rejuvenated.

IMAG1895 IMAG1847 - Copy

IMAG1855 - Copy IMAG1860

IMAG1892 IMAG1893

What can you do to simplify your life?

Would you need less money or more money?

TuneIn today to what your spirit is longing for.  Don’t let it bleed to death.  StepUp and  give yourself permission to nurture that beautiful spirit in you because it is what you need to restore your balance.

Love,

Magdalene

Rest in peace Dave Antoine. You were an inspiration to me and many others.

dave

This is Dave who was my my student over 20 years  ago.  Dave recently crossed over and I wish to extend my sincere condolences to his family and friends, especially to him mom whom I have tremendous respect and admiration for because of her love and dedication to ensuring that Dave lived the best life he could have lived. I feel blessed that I met Dave and knew him well – not only as his teacher but he was also a soul companion who taught me more about Special Education than any class could have taught me. He was my first student after I graduated from the MICO University College in Jamaica and I spent five years with him in an integrated classroom with five other students with other disabilities. Dave kept us all amused with his smart responses, refusal to accept anything, determination to have his way but above all his loving nature will always remain close to my heart.  As I write these words, I can still feel his small gentle hands on my face and I can still hear his voice saying, “Mrs. Maxwell, this is your nose?” He would touch each part of my face almost daily to reinforce the names.

I met him when he was only 5 years and I believe that Dave and I  were destined to meet because he was truly one of my greatest teachers.   With him, I experienced the Ying and Yang of life and knew that his presence on this earth was just as perfect as anyone of us walking through life with perfect bodies and perfect minds.

On the first day of my job as a specialist teacher for the blind and visually impaired, the school principal introduced me to Dave.

She said, “This is Dave.  He is blind, he has problems walking, is mentally challenged, can be rude sometimes,…”,  and continued to explain to me the various challenges he faced.  At first, I thought I would not be able to do much with Dave because his disabilities almost overpowered his strengths. As a new Special Education teacher, I felt overwhelmed. However,  within 2 years of working intensely with him, his family and the community, we got this kid to walk independently, sing, identify colours,  carry out conversations and most importantly think through things.  He had a mind of his own and it was a beautiful thing to watch him push his boundaries and to have his voice heard and respected. Four years after working with Dave, he was integrated into the regular primary school on a part-time basis and became an inspiration to teachers, students and the community at large.

My experience with Dave and the many other persons with disabilities, has made me more appreciative of their presence in this world.  There are all kinds of myths around people with disabilities and often parents and families are put under severe pressures, navigating through the maze of health care, daily care, long-term care and generally the responsibilities that come with caring for people who are challenged in various ways.  I learnt to work with them using their strengths and must say that in some cases their strengths will never be able to provide work to help them sustain themselves, take care of themselves  or do anything ‘meaningful’ in the way which we define it.

However, what if their only purpose on this planet was to teach us kindness, respect, gratitude, compassion, forgiveness?  What if they came to teach us unconditional love?

Among the many lessons I learnt from Dave, was this experience in teaching a blind child to smile.

One day, I was photographing him and just as I was about to snap the photo, I asked him to smile but he showed no response. He stood there like a rock with his ears on the alert.  I said,  “Come on Dave, smile.”

After a pensive moment, he asked quietly, “What does smile mean? What do I have to do?” I was shocked for a moment. How could I explain what a smile is to a blind child?  It is something we learn automatically through observation.

I said very foolishly, “Smile, is like laughing.”

To that he responded curtly, “I don’t have anything to laugh about. What is “smile”?”

I put the camera away and told him I would try to explain it to him.  None of my education had taught me how to teach the concept of ‘smile’.

“Come here.” I said. “Let us play with the ball.” He enjoyed rolling the ball on the floor and finding it. His face beamed with a smile every time he found the ball and rolled it back to me.

“Dave you are smiling!” I said. “You smile when you roll the ball.”

“I don’t know what smile means.” he said. “What is it that I am doing that you call a smile?”

This was getting hard. I tried to explain to him how to move the muscles in his face and his mouth to create a smile but he could not get it. When he did it, he was just stiff without any emotion. We rolled the ball back and forth and he squealed in delight each time he found the ball.

I asked him, ” Dave, how do you feel when you find the ball?”

He said,  “Happy.”

“When you feel happy, how do you show it?” I asked.

He shrugged and said, “I don’t know.”

“The next time you find the ball  tell me what you feel in your face”. I said.

He found the ball and then said, “I feel happy when I get the ball and I think that my face smiles.” There was an “Aha” moment on his face!

“What part of your face smiles Dave?” I asked.

“I feel my mouth and my eyes smile.” he responded.

I never forgot this statement. Even though he was blind, I could see the sparkle in his eye and he was so right when he said “I feel that my mouth and my eyes smile.” His eyes were smiling. This was a profound teaching /learning moment for me – when a 5-year-old child, who is blind, could connect that his eyes and his mouth created a smile. How authentic and true is that!

Dave reinforced to me that we can’t smile if we don’t feel happy. We don’t really smile when we simply poise our mouth to show our teeth. Our smile is an automatic response to the happiness we feel.

After four years of working with him and teaching him how to use his residual vision, one day he said to me, “Ms. Maxwell, I can see you smiling at me.” He moved closer to me and let his hand touch my face and then my lips. I can only imagine with the little vision he had, how I must have looked to him.

Teachers and students from the Vieux-Fort Infant and Primary Schools as well as the Saltibus Combined School would remember him.  He loved singing and would often bless the schools with his voice.

After many years, I re-connected with Dave’s family through Facebook.  The family has moved to the USA and he graduated from High School and attended an adult day care.

I am grateful for the time we spent together.  I will never forget you Dave… may your soul rest in peace.

Tune in and pay attention to those who have disabilities.  Be grateful for all the gifts you have.  Step up to look at life through their souls – there may be some beautiful insights for our growth and learning.

Love,

Magdalene

If you believed in this one thing, you would likely live every moment fully…

DSC07717Death.  Do we choose it or does it choose us?  Some say that we CANNOT die before our time but we don’t know when that time will be.

My sister Anthia died when she was only 27. We can say that she was too young to die.  On the other hand, how can I say that, when I was given the premonition of her death and I had dreams of her death a full year before she died.  I was only 16 at the time and these dreams were quite confusing to me until she died and I was able to put it all  together and realized that life was preparing me for her death.

What I remember most clearly about her life, was that she lived it and enjoyed it.  She loved buying beautiful shoes and clothes. One day, I overheard my mom scolding her about buying too many shoes.  She said to her, “You must save your money.  Why do you keep on buying all these clothes are shoes?”  This did not bother Anthia – she continued shopping for beautiful things.  I can still see the happiness and glow on her when she dressed – she was exquisite.  I am so glad that she shopped for her heart’s desires.

We spent many, many evenings in my parent’s old kitchen talking about books, movies, boys and life.  Being several years older than me, I felt it special that my oldest sister and I could talk for such long hours.  Her best friends became my friends and I still love and adore them because of the gift that they too gave me by accepting me in their lives so completely.  Now, I know why God, in his wisdom, granted me so much time with her, in her short time.

Did her soul know that she had only a short earth life and she needed to make the most of it?

I also know, based on my dreams and connections with the spirit world, that there is also nothing to be afraid of death as the soul only transitions to the other life with a higher dimension. Anthia, my mom, dad and other loved ones continue to communicate with me. They are still very present in my life.

Anthia had high expectations for me and expected me to excel at school.  For every prize and award that I have received, I silently thank her for her confidence in me and always speaking to me in a way that made me think of  using my talent on this earth. She had an aspiration that I would be a writer one day because she loved reading the poems and silly things I wrote about.  Well, so many years later, here I am writing away on this blog.

TuneIn to  LIVE YOUR LIFE FULL. StepUp to listen to that inner voice within you and that calling within your heart even though it means that sometimes you have to take a risk.  Don’t be afraid to say what you need to say to someone or do what you need to do for them.  If you had only the next moment left to live, what would you do or not do?

If you have lost a dear one and you are reading this blog now, I am receiving a message now, to let you know that your loved one is perfectly fine.  They have entered into a spirit dimension which is all love and light.  It was their time to go and nothing could have stopped it – they chose to go back to the spirit world.  All they ask of us is to continue remembering them as loving us.  Don’t be sad for their crossing over – celebrate their life and their spirits.

Here is a video by Steve Jobs which takes the message closer home.
