18 things i’ve never mentioned about myself

  1. I think karma is malleable. You can change it. The universe is not tit for tat and God is not keeping score. At least not like that.
  2. I once believed that I was destined to marry Steve Winwood. I was wildly convinced that he was The One for me and shamelessly told everyone we were getting married.
  3. Speaking of hot men, I think Michael Franti’s Love Kamikaze – The lost singles & remix (only available on special import CD) is the sexiest sexy stuff ever laid down on disc.
  4. I’ve had angelic experiences.
  5. I don’t eat mushrooms, onions, or tofu. I’m allergic to lilies and codine. (That’s 5 things.)
  6. I’ve never had a cup of coffee. Not even a sip.
  7. I think too many people marry the wrong people. And…I think too many people get divorced too soon.
  8. I have extreme judgement for parents who put their kids on leashes (like you see at malls.) It’s lazy and it’s mean.
  9. Being called Missy, Girl, Maam, or M’Dear is very difficult for me.
  10. I don’t mind paying taxes.
  11. My favourite movie of all time is The Piano. BTW, what you don’t see at the end of this clip — is that she frees herself and lives.
  12. I think long marriage engagements are a cop out. Things do change when you make vows.
  13. I feel like I’m in a constant state of prayer.
  14. I am an obsessive recycler. If the hotel I’m staying in doesn’t recycle, I’ll bring the plastic bottles home with me in my suitcase.
  15. Last year, I burned all of my journals (starting from age 13), except my Moleskine notebooks from the last two years because they contain outlines for my next five books. However, I did go through those notebooks and tear out (and burn) all entries of painful happenings.
  16. I am perpetually torn about being nocturnal and wanting to convert into a morning person. I’m thinking of getting up at 4am. It’d be both super late, and super early.
  17. I want to learn a lot more about crystals, olives, sound recording, and mystic nuns.

[LIGHT WORK] An intimate Q&A episode. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

If God is in the details, then the Soul is in a good Q&A. And that’s the substance of Podcast #4: Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes. Your questions make it so easy for me to rant and offer some (hopefully) useful how-to’s and tricks of the trade. The “trade” being discernment and devotion. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

[LIGHT WORK] Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes

In a nutshell: I’m hot for hot man feminists who work (in their own way) to make the world a better place. Service is a huge turn on for me.

[LIGHT WORK] The service of joy, especially in these times

I’ve talked to rabbis, and priests, and monks, and people who I consider to be high esoteric practitioners. I’ve figured out a few things about joy… and I’ve woven them into this week’s episode of LIGHT WORK.

[LIGHT WORK] We can’t get to the light, until we understand the suffering.

I’ve struggled for a long time with wondering if pain and suffering were essential to growth. Are they essential to me being a more expanded, clear minded, loving, joyous, sexy human being? Do I have to hurt to get there? Well, I fucking hope not… but I haven’t figured out a way around suffering yet.

[LIGHT WORK] The upside of suffering… sort of.

You see, there is suffering in the sensitivity. It hurts to feel. And we’re raised to strive—to desensitize—and it’s killing us. I think the strength is in opening. That opening to feel is where resiliency is born.

[LIGHT WORK, Ep. #1] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy5

[LIGHT WORK] The union. The bliss. The bind…Friendship is EVERYthing.

I want to go deep into this conversation about creating Fulfilling Friendships. I’ve got lots to say about engaged listening, self respect, breaking up (when necessary), and celebrating our friend-loves. I’ve also got plenty of opinions and practices for self-compassion, deep spiritual devotion, healthier relationships with our damn phones, and better quality sleep.

[LIGHT WORK] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy

I asked about a zillion people what they wanted more of in their lives. The #1 craving, by far: more fulfilling FRIENDSHIPS. We’re connection starved, we know this. Let me give you a peek into my own circle. In this first episode of LIGHT WORK, I use my own friends as how-to examples for creating radical support and sweetness in your life.

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage. (inspired by recent events)

Popularity isn’t always true power. Money isn’t always success. Experience does not guarantee wisdom. Question it all. And do not doubt the wisdom of your rage.

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them-feature

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them.

There are still some basic good manners that should prevail no matter our generation, station, or affiliation. Here’s what it might mean to be classy, kind, and considerate whenever you are able (and we are almost always able).

Danielle-LaPorte-Lightwork-Podcast

I made something new for you. For US.

The LIGHT WORK series will unfold over six episodes. These are girlfriend-style sermons on serving the world while staying sane, cosmic connectedness over tech addiction, self compassion and more fulfilling friendships. Poetry. Hilarity. Peeks into the personal.
