5 rules for life

The fine gentleman at Five Rules For Life asked me if I wanted to weigh in on…life. But of course! If you have your own nuggets of wisdom to share, head on over and let Jon know – he may post ‘em. The site is purely philanthropic and ad free. Thank you, Jon.

Danielle’s “Five Rules For Life”:


  • There are no rules.


Structures, how-to’s, dogma, principles…all disciplines and theories should be used to support your freedom and independent thinking. Curiosity is exponentially more powerful than playing by the rules.


  • Say thank you.


Gratitude is one of the most creative and noble forces of human nature. It makes everything – absolutely everything – better.


  • Let your feelings be your guide.


You feel, therefore you are. Your desired feelings should be the basis of your goals and strategic planning. Every dream is based on a desired feeling – focus on your inner state first and your outer reality has a better chance of lining up with your ideals.


  • Speak your truth.


Loud and proud or softly whispered – getting your truth out is the most healing and effectual thing you can do for your well being. Whether it’s between you and your god, at the dinner table, or in the boardroom – your authentic expression is essential to living in colour, whole and large.


  • Laughter is the honey of life.


Like gratitude, you can always find something to laugh at. No matter how pathetic or grand, screwed up or divine…a sense of humour can make the difference between running the rat race or easin’ down the road.

May the sweetness of this moment
radiate to all beings everywhere
that we may see the light and resilience we reflect back to one another.

New holiday traditions, to sweeten the chaos

There’s a lot about the holidays I look forward to. The beautiful rituals, and being with people I love, and Jesus (one of my true loves). But… there’s a lot about the holidays in North America that I could do without. So I try to keep this season as gentle as possible. Here’s my way of sweetening the chaos and creating beauty that doesn’t weigh heavy on Mother Earth…

Alleluia, What A F*cking Year (a prayer)

Alleluia, What A F*cking Year (a holiday or anytime prayer)

For the love of God,
The truth crusading! The justice making!
The fires, the floods, the impact.
And the undeniable RISING of… us.

Vancouver! Jan 12. Event!

We thought our Vancouver community might like to get in on the conversation. We’ll do a bit of mediation and prayer together, and we’ll all leave slightly more enlightened and open-hearted. Ideally. Hopefully. Highly likely. Who’s in?
