Happy 11-11-11

Most Marvelous Morning to you all! 

Just wanted to give each of you a virtual hug and send my warmest blessing for the most perfect day.  It is said that today has a wonderfully high vibration for creating.  That may be so, but I believe EVERY day can have a wonderfully high vibration for creating...but why waste a day when so many people are putting their positive vibrations out in time and space as well!

So today, I have set my intention to be the best me that I can, to live with love and compassion in all I do and to be open to all of the wonderful things that the universe has in store for me!

My iPod is playing my positive playlist all day long and I am feeling the groove and the love!

Love to each and every one of you!  May you be blessed beyond belief today!

DID YOU KNOW: In South America hunters have a unique way of catching monkeys? They put nuts in narrow necked, heavy bottomed jars. The monkeys, loving the smell of the nuts, and knowing they are in for a yummy treat, will grab the nuts at the bottom of the jar. Due to the narrow neck of the jar, the hand that went in easily won't come out when holding the nuts in their fist.

The monkeys, not
wanting to lose the tasty treat, will not let go of the nut. They stay there at that jar that is too heavy to lift with their fist clenched around a nut that they will never get to eat. The hunters come around and simply pick up the monkeys that have been sitting there.

The monkeys could have easily escaped capture if only they had let go of that nut.

What are you holding onto in your life that isn't serving you, that isn't letting you move from where you are?

Letting go is one of the things that we learn about in classes and coaching at Practice Living Joy. Please get in touch if you want to learn more! Shellie.Couch@PracticeLivingJoy.com or 620-860-4811

One Way to Begin Practicing Joy

One way of practicing Joy -- letting go of judgement. It is often easier to let go of judgement of others than to let go of judging yourself, but with practice, you can stop judging yourself as well. There are no "good" feelings or "bad" feelings, only feelings. Allow yourself to feel whatever you feel, acknowledge it and then release it. You are on your way to practicing joy in your daily life.

What a Bright New Beginning!

Good day, all!!

I am so happy to be able to finally realize a dream of mine...sharing how I have been able to find joy and happiness in the present moment, without waiting for that ever elusive event or goal to be met before I can be happy.  I'm sure you have done that.  "I'll be happy when (I lose that weight) (I have that raise) (I get that house) (insert whatever it is that you are waiting to happen before you are happy)."

I will be conducting my classes "Practice Living Joy - Life in the Present Moment" at Healing Artz Studio (9 W Ave B, Hutchinson, KS) on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month at 6:00pm beginning on July 28th.  Topics that will be covered in the classes include (but are not limited to):

Changing your thoughts
Attitude
Gratitude
Acceptance (lack of resistance)
How words can change your life
Intention
Action

The classes will be $5/class and I am offering a punch card for ten classes for $45.

I am also happy to be offering individualized coaching in person locally or by email, phone or skype.  Coaching prices will vary depending on the method chosen.  Please contact me for more information.
