Light & Resilience (a holiday or anytime prayer)

Here’s a gentle, inclusive prayer for our gatherings. (If you want something a little edgier to recite, you can also print out: Alleluia, What A F*cking Year.)
If you’ve got a crew that sits down to eat and just dives in, maybe you could be the brave heart who says, “Hey… I thought we could start with a little blessing.” Breaking bread together is incredibly meaningful. And we need to come together more often to… just be together. And a little non-denominational prayer in advance not only raises the vibe, I’m positive that it’s good for digestion.
Amen and so be it.
LOVE,
Danielle . . . . .

Dear (you choose: Beloved God, Creation, The Divine Mother, Holy Father, Life Source, Universal Love…)

We give thanks for our togetherness, our sameness, our contrasts,
and the light and resilience we reflect back to one another.

We give thanks for the Holy that holds us
and the humanity that brings us back to the Holy
to see the light and resilience we reflect back to one another.

We ask that our self compassion becomes love and understanding for everyone around us,
that our personal happiness be woven to the heart of the world
and that our nourishment feed the collective.

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.

Amen. So be it. May all be so blessed.

 

PS. print out this mini poster (it’s free). Place it at your desk, on your nightstand, or fold it into your planner. And then… use it. Read it in the morning, say it out loud with your hands on your heart.

A (free) holiday survival kit for family (dys)functions

2018Holidays.RockSteady_Email.Header

For The Black Sheep and mystified, the wounded healers and middle children, for all the adult children who’d rather a root canal than go to Aunt Ellen’s for turkey dinner…

 

Dear fellow grown up,

You’re someone’s boss. Your friends think you’re wise and hilarious and together. You can dress yourself. And yet… at some point this season, you may find yourself ready to rage n’ crumble like it’s 1989. (No one can wipe out years of good therapy like kinfolk can, amiright?)

My friend, let’s get you centered in your truth and prepped for these choice gatherings… so you don’t end up in the bathroom drunk-dialing your therapist, or your high school sweetheart who’s now married with 3 kids.

Allow me to introduce to you…

ROCK STEADY!
A holistic survival kit for
family (dys)functions—
and whenever your “people”
don’t feel like your PEOPLE.

Just a few reminders of how to bring your adult-heartedness to the table, served with a side of comedy, a spoon of esoterica… Oh, and the most pump-you-uppiest playlist ever.

New holiday traditions, to sweeten the chaos

Holiday2018.HolidayTraditions_Email.Header

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…

THE best hot cocoa recipe—that’s NUTRITIOUS
Vancouver-based nutritionist, Desiree Nielson got me into this delicious Superfood Hot Cocoa that’s vegan and gluten free. The recipe is here!

Shower the people you love with… a few simple words
My friend Carrie M. inspired this years ago: Dinner place cards that really honour your guests. Simple words. Any positive word-concept-thought you have about them. This may be the sweetest gift they’ve received in a long time—some poetic acknowledgement. I guarantee they’ll leave with these tucked close to their heart.

Freedom… to not gift (‘tis a beautiful thing)
A few years ago I asked a bunch of my friends, “Hey, so, can our gift to each other this year be that we don’t exchange gifts?” The unanimous answer: “Oh my God! I would love that!

Friends don’t let friends stress out or overspend.

Gifting concert tickets
Concert tix are my favourite gift to give. Because MUSIC. Is everything. Because… date night!

Gifting The Desire Map Weekly Planner
I’m so proud of The Desire Map Planner Program this year. (Well, every year… but this year especially because it always gets better.) I love gifting Planners to any dreamer-doers on the list, and my old school types who still like paper ‘n pen planning.

Because this:

With an organic elegance The Desire Map couples our primal desire-energy with the inborn intelligence of our feelings. The result? Optimizing our time on Earth. LaPorte’s joie de vivre is contagious. Prepare to catch it.” – Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning

And this:

I literally get tears in my eyes when I think about how this program is shifting my perception and helping me to really go after what is truly important and to let go of the rest.”  – Catherine Just, Photographer

 

Spread the Light by keeping it lite,
