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.

Pleasure-is-power

Your pleasure is your power… here’s how to get there, a few hours at a time.

When you’re in your pleasure you think more clearly, you’re more efficient, you’re most certainly more creative, and you’re more loving. Your pleasure states are good for your immune system. Mmmhmm.

As our American friends head to the polls today, I wanted to offer this to all of us: Look for Light with more intensity than ever… and vote for it.

Transformational Speaking

Want to be a powerful speaker? Meet the master…

Maybe you’re an introvert with a message. You’ve heard the call to speak, but playing the “extrovert” feels inauthentic. You may already be an active speaker, but your last few gigs or presentations could have used some oomph, that (sometimes) elusive fire.

CONSCIOUS gratitude is SMART gratitude—know exactly what you’re grateful for & why.

Conscious gratitude has been one of the most healing and creative practices in my life. It gets me out of my funk EVERY TIME. And it’s the source of a lot of my productivity. Conscious gratitude heals you, it’s generative, and it’s incredibly empowering.

The beautiful terror of going slowly

The beautiful terror of going slower. (I highly recommend it.)

It will not break your spirit, it will break down your addictions. Slower is not robbing you of having your deep desires being fulfilled, it’s helping you to be there—really be there—so you can see them right in front of you.

Stop Doing. (AKA detangling, liberating, and facing some gnarly terror.)

In terms of being successful (meaning YOUR definition of personal success), what you stop doing is just as important as what you start doing. Full stop. I know this to be true in my own life, over and over again.

Danielle LaPorte Near Blinding Radiance

When you get through the big pain, this is what happens: Near-blinding radiance.

You will have more to give—and you will LOVE giving it. You will seek to give. It will be the most incredible feeling. Someone is going to come to you with a broken wing, or low on reserves and you are going to have so much love and insight to offer them.

Hey Fire Starter People

Hey, Fire Starter! Is your time management system starving your Soul?

When you’re clear on what activates the joy within you, time management becomes a means to self-expression, not self-policing. And “making time” becomes an act of service so that you can be your best for those around you.

What needs to change? Look at what sucks without criticizing yourself.

You’re going to look at what needs to change WITHOUT laying a guilt trip on yourself (or anyone else). You’re observing, not criticizing. Criticism clouds your clarity, so resist that destructive impulse and simply name what you’d like to change.
