The book is out!
Do you have fun with your own life? How often do you really pay attention and choose things to improve your day? In 365 Days of Happiness, author Jacqueline Pirtle has created daily inspirations that help you mindfully work towards living a more vivid experience of daily happiness. Showing that you can put in work to change your life while having fun, the practices are full of whimsy and delight. Through light, bubbly, cheerful passages, each day teaches you to find happiness, use those sour lemons, and shift yourself into a “high for life” frequency where you can reach happiness anywhere at any time.
Jacqueline Pirtle a.k.a FreakyHealer has been leading life-changing workshops, talks, and private sessions since 2006. Her passion for “sprinkling happiness” and being “high for life” shines through in all of her work as an energy healer and mindfulness teacher. She was born in Switzerland, but has lived everywhere. She now makes her home in the United States with her wonderful husband, amazing kids, and sweet cats, and can often be found having a little chat with a falling leaf, or indulging in a cupcake at her favorite bakery.
I am absolutely thrilled that you got your hands on this book and are entertaining the wish to learn how to BE happy and live happily ever after!
You might think it’s hard or even impossible to be happy every single day. Let me tell you this: It is not. No matter what is happening, you can always shift from being unhappy to BE and live your own happiness. Promise. I have tested this statement through all the ups and downs throughout my life as a woman, wife, mom, energy healer, mindfulness guide, and teacher of life.
But why even BE and live happy?
By BE, I mean your whole YOU (body, mind, soul, and consciousness) being happy. And by live, I mean you experiencing this physical life as happy.
1. For starters, a happy life is a fun and fulfilled experience. A happy being has a healthy physical body, a mind producing joyous thoughts, a soul easy to connect to, and a vivid consciousness to experience life through. When I am happy, my health picks up, I know exactly what I need and want, everything goes right for me, and I experience my life as magical. I call this state my “high for life” frequency.
2. No pressure, but I see it as everyone’s responsibility to BE their best happy them! I base this on the fact that nothing is ever separate, but everything IS always ONE. That we are all made of energy, we are all connected, and we share our energies with each other at all times. You make the world a better place when you are happy!
3. I BELIEVE our truth in this physical life is to BE and live happily, and I KNOW that everyone deserves to learn how to achieve that.
And what is it all about?
Unleash the power of your body, mind, soul, and consciousness to acknowledge all there IS for you. To get a deeper understanding of yourself, everything, and everyone beyond your physical limitations. Dive happily and vividly into the adventure of your life.
So how does it work?
Happiness is a live moment-to-moment kind of feeling. It is an exercise in mindfulness that shows up in many different ways. There is no right or wrong, no imperfect or perfect, and no good or bad time. Happiness is born when you choose it, commit to it, and when you want to learn how to BE it.
I decided to spend every day of 2017 devoted to my own happiness. I wrote every single day about the things I do to honor my own joy, and I used these writings to create this 365 day step-by-step guide, so I could teach you how to shift to BE and live in a “high for life” frequency of happiness too—no matter where you are at in your life right now. I started writing these for myself, but I have a little sneaky intent to touch your heart every day and initiate new learning, understanding, knowledge, and wisdom for you to get closer to your true, authentic self.
Some of the guidance you may choose to practice only on that given day, and others you will fall in love with and adopt to continue for the rest of your life. Either way, I hope they will all be rooted in your being, and that your created happiness stays with you for your whole life and beyond.
So place this book next to your bed and let it be the first inspiration nourishing your body, mind, soul, and consciousness in the morning. Drenching your new day in a “high for life” energy, which you then can feel, think, smell, taste, hear, and see all day long.
Yes, you read this right. I believe very strongly that until you taste your day, you are not living as vividly as you could be, so let me share with you.
Creating this book changed me immensely and I hope it does the same for you.
With the happiest wishes for you,
Imagine you have a planting tray. Each compartment has a different kind of seed planted inside, and every seed has its own space to grow and none get mixed up; and yet, they are all connected, because it is a tray.
Every day you check on all the seeds, water them, make sure they get sunlight, and are warm. You have absolute trust and belief in them that they have their own power and wisdom to grow. If they do well, you watch their growth with excitement. If they don’t do well, you adjust the water-giving, warmth and sun-intake. Never would you lose your trust in them, or get all tangled up in their business of growing. Rather, you keep faith in their own reason to BE.
The same goes for your loved ones… Think of every loved one as a seed living in a compartment of a planting tray. Every person gets their own space to grow without getting mixed up, yet everyone is connected. You check on everyone daily, nurture them with compassion, love, your light, well wishes, and your happiness. You have absolute trust and belief in every single one that they have their own power and wisdom to grow, be well, and live happy. If they do well, you watch their growth with excitement. If they don’t do well, you adjust your way of nurturing. Never will you lose your trust in them or get all tangled up in their business of living. You keep faith in their own reason to BE.
The best thing you can do for yourself, everyone, and everything is to not get tangled up in anyone’s life-business. Instead gift them with your unconditional trust and belief in them, then turn towards yourself and take care of your own life-business. Which is to be the happiest, healthiest, loving, and purest YOU, that you can be.
That IS happiness!
