As a part of your self-support plan include some fun. Taking the time to play and laugh opens you to possibilites that you might not have considered. Fun renews you and places you fully in the present moment. Playfulness and fun are trying to engage you. Notice them and let them in. If you get stuck think of the two in this photo for inspiration. Ready, set, go!!!

This is an invitation to join together as a global community to Lift Up Love. I am inviting you to join in Lifting Up Love on August 11, 2018 at 7:00 PDT. (I am in California. Here is a link to find out what time that is for you. http://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/) On that time wherever you are in the world pray, align, meditate, hold your focus, drum, do ritual, have ceremony, light a candle, however you offer your intentions do that. Imagine it as manifested as you focus on this intention:
“Love is the prevailing force in people’s hearts, mind and actions. All feel and think from love as they take actions that uplifts love for everyone, thereby creating more kindness, compassion, respect and honor for all of life. And so it is.”
This event came to be because I became overwhelmed with what is taking place in our world. At first this feeling paralyzed me because I felt the trauma and was not certain of what to do. Then this thought occurred to me, “I am not powerless.” None of us are powerless; in fact we are very powerful indeed. As I remembered this truth I began to think about what I could do.
My morning includes holding a positive intention within me and then sending it out into the world. Many of us do this individually and/or within our groups and communities already. My thought was that if we could all focus our intentions, prayers or vibrations on Lifting Up Love at the same time, we would amplify the energy of love, which is the most powerful transformative force in the Universe, to create a new day. A day and world that holds up love in people’s hearts, mind and actions for everything, thereby creating more; kindness, compassion, respect and honor for all of life.
I am inviting everyone that I know to join me in this intention. Actually, I am asking people whom I don’t know too. Some of those people I am listing here to show that we can connect with other communities who might join in this endeavor to usher in this vision. Those I’ve asked to join beyond people I know are: His Holiness the Dali Lama, Deepak Chopra, Oprah, Krishna Das, Deva Premal and Miten, Russill Paul, Native American Elders, Leaders in traditional religions and non-traditional religions, spiritual groups and individuals.
If you share this idea with everyone you know and with some whom you don’t, invite them to join us in Lifting Up Love. Ask them to share with others too. I believe if we all participate we can tip the scales to a more loving world.
With deepest gratitude, Shelly O’Connell

As you start and move about your day include some ways to show your appreciation for your self. Take some time to really treasure the uniqueness and wonder of the creation that is wholly, individually and intrinsically you and you alone. It’s a revelation and marvel when you do.
If you are like most of us this is a foreign concept. We are taught to care about others, the environment, our relation to the whole, our impact on the world, etc. Those things are key in being in harmony with life and I believe we need to learn to honor and appreciate ourselves too.
Stand boldly and vibrantly in the glorious expression of you! Don’t shrink, stand down or play small, instead revel in you. Find some ways to offer your gratitude to your self just for being you. Try it today and see what happens. Set a challenge to notice and appreciate at least ten wonders of the miracle of you. Bonus points if you find more than ten. Ready, set and go!
What possibilities can you imagine for your life? Coaching can help you bring them into reality. Let me know when you’re ready….
What is it that nurtures you? At first glance this question might seem frivolous or unrelated to your life. That’s understandable since we are conditioned to focus upon our work. If we live our life only concentrating on our career, burnout is sure to follow. Consider placing some attention on what nurtures you.
Start small. Begin with thinking about what uplifts you, notice what gives you energy, inspires you, makes you feel fit, centered or calm and happy during your day. These are the areas that support you in your life. They are a part of self-care and are what nurturing you is all about.
Acknowledge those things that drain you, tire you out, cause you stress and bring your energy down. Doing this is important because these are the opposite of self-care. Continuing to do too much of them destroys your well-being.
In order to nurture yourself commit to doing one small action today that lifts you. Also, let go of or modify one thing this week that drains you. If you add in nurturing things and release unsupportive ones you will begin to experience a lightness and appreciation for your life. This takes commitment and consistency. Nurture yourself each day and you begin to foster a life that cherishes you.
I offer Life Coaching services to assist you with: resilience, healthy relationships, boundaries, self-care, life design, awareness & use of personal wisdom, and goals specific to you.
Interested? The next step is to contact me to schedule a free Discovery Session. During the Discovery Session we will talk about your goals, dreams and ideas for your life. I will explain how the process of coaching works and my approach. Together we will determine our fit and go forward from there.
