Passion is a laser beam (+ a freebie to help you harness that light)

September’s ‘round the bend, and after a couple months of sunny, watermelon days, I’m ready for fresh pencils and mugs of rose tea. The vibe: I’m hungry to get organized and envision the rest of the year! I’ve got PLANS. This creative phase will call for contemplation and risks. So before I cannonball in… I pause.

Stay in that eager place and just vibrate for a bit—then when you come out, you slingshot to the next level. I always make sure my next moves are rooted in how I really want to feel (aka, my “Core Desired Feelings” if you’re a Desire Mapper). Passion is a laser beam. If you can get a handle on that energy, you can use it to light the way forward and burn through obstacles. That’s the power of desire.

If you already have a Desire Map Planner, your time to check in with your CDFs and envision the month ahead is coming up soon. Set aside that time, make it sacred. Esoterically and culturally, September is a particularly potent month for fresh starts.

If you don’t have a Planner yet, I have something for you… printable September Planner to help you harness your “It’s a brand new season!” energy, and make some magical plans.

These aren’t just pretty calendar pages. The Desire Map Planner is a holistic approach to designing the life you desire. The September Planner contains:

  • A full month of DAILY OR WEEKLY planner pages—choose between the daily and weekly layouts, or try out both to figure out your planning style! They’re filled with soulful planning prompts, #Truthbombs, and journaling questions to help you stay connected to your true desires.
  • An astrology guide to help you add some star power to your intentions.
  • A monthly overview calendar so you can easily view your month at a glance.
  • A unique mantra chosen to give you comfort and guidance for the month.

Do what lights you up. Be in love with your plans. Here’s your free month of Desire Mapping to help you be all that and more.

Bright Love,

Danielle LaPorte






P.S. Forward this to a friend who’s eager to harness the new season.

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.

Wishes for our American friends

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.

Seekers + Conscious Creatives, make this your mantra

We want you to have this November Desire Map Planner. Planning from a heart place can help you choose freedom now + whenever you can, instead of waiting n’ hoping that you’ll feel free “when you get there.”


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.
