Juicy Joy

From the first word to the last, Juicy Joy: 7 Simple Steps to Your Glorious, Gustsy Self is a tropical fruit smoothie treat penned by Florida based colorfully creative author, Lisa McCourt. She invites the reader to travel along with her as she sets the ground work by declaring that she ‘wants more'; meaning peeling away, letting go of, releasing what no longer served in her life, to begin anew. Having done that, she now has the tools and life experience to teach readers with her grow-along exercises that she calls JuicyFeels. Each one beckons a diving deeper into the subtle and obvious things that may have kept us stuck in the muck and frees us to dance into, leap into, levitate into a life that is truly worthy of the beautiful beings that we are. I found myself laughing at the familiarity of Lisa’s words since they seemed as if they came from a “Vulcan Mind Meld”; so aligned they are with my own, even though our life experiences are different. That is one of the appeals of the book; readers from all walks of life will relate. Some are of the ‘hippy-dippy’ sort (I am proud to be one of ‘em:) and some more mainstream; but Lisa is adept at bridging those two seemingly disparate worlds.

The 7 steps she espouses are:

Emotion-Mixing

Filter-Fixing

Judgement-Flipping

Story-Stripping

Taco-Filling

Gut- Dripping

God-Dipping

 

I enjoyed the exercises; many of them what she calls NakedWriting. Yes, you can keep your clothes on, but imagine peeling off the layers of your psyche whilst buck nekkid in the privacy of wherever you might be! Meditation, movement, time in nature and with loved ones, as well as mirror exercises are doorways to the life altering world of Juicy Joy!

Slurp from the top to the bottom of this literary glass with a silly straw!  Yum!

Bucket List
I awoke in the wee hours this morning, from a dream about my parents. Both passed in the last few years; my dad in 2008 and my mom in 2010. They were the dearest people in my life; teachers, guides, providers, cheerleaders and guardians of my heart and soul. Although I know that they are safe and so
