1. So, like, what do you most love about me?

Danielle: You laugh at all my jokes. Is that too self-centered? Let me think of something that’s about YOU. Oh I know . . . YOU get ME great gifts, and when I come over, you always get that cheese that I like.
Candis: You overlook my shortcomings and see the best parts of me; I love your deep desire to find the sweet spot in every person.
D: Well now I feel like I should have said something deeper about you. Let’s get deep now.

2. What was my worst fashion phase?

C: It’s a toss-up. Your early Vancouver days: Acrylic nails, yellow boots, that orange leather jacket with shoulder pads. Or the Seattle phase: Home highlighting kit–done in a chunking technique to create a bird-like effect.
D: You: The Ramones concert. Circa ‘95. You had a pixie cut died grey (how was that even chemically possible?) with a daisy-patterned short jumpsuit. And black, ripped stockings. It was even too much for Joey Ramone.


3. You don’t know . . .

C: How relieved I am that we have the same ruling planet! Being that in sync is so comforting.
D: How much I need you. “Desperately” would be accurate. Or, how much of a true beauty you are.


4. You’re the best in the world at . . .

D: Healing people by making things beautiful for them. You’re also incredibly optimistic–even tho’ I don’t think you see yourself as that way, but you are.
C: Creating a space & asking the right questions.


MUST USE 1433_0025. Best laugh . . .

C & D: The $1.99 face mask!!!!!
D: There are so many legendary laughs. No one will get them tho’, so let’s move on.


6. If it weren’t for you . . .

C: I would still be lying about my age, embellishing stories, and trying to be someone I am not.
D: I’d be on meds.


7. When you die . . .

C: We both have always known that I am going first. So come and find me. I will have the place ready for you. Pillows fluffed, tea on. I will show you around, and I will be so happy to be back together.
D: I’m going to make sure they burn incense and play some Melody Gardot at your funeral. And we’re taking you out in a pickup truck with a wreath of lavender on the grill. I’ve got the whole thing planned.


1433_0058. Do you remember the time . . .

D: We drove eight hours to Texas for pizza and then came straight back?
C: We decided to be vegetarians and went out for a farewell burger?
D: You washed my kitchen floors–on your knees–after the baby came?
C: We skipped work and got our first tattoos from the guy with the Chihuahua and the Harley?
D: You so would have gone home with him.
C: Damn straight.

 


1433_0049. What’s the best advice I ever gave you?

C: Never wear houndstooth. And – eat one more doughnut, then . . . go green! We don’t judge each other. We just roll with it. That’s why it’s so awesome.
D: You told me to stay, when it was good to stay. Go, when it was good to go. You always know what’s best for my heart–and that what’s best has cycles.
C: And you always tell me to BUY THE CASHMERE.
D: True. And use the whole tub of feta for the Greek salad. It’s all about the cheese.
C: Allll about the cheese.


10. The world needs to know that . . .

C: Your heart drives all that you do.
D: a) Your mother didn’t know how to spell “Candace” when you were born, so that’s why you’re “Candis.” Ten points for you-neek-ness! b) You’re deeply accepting of how things are. Which would make you pretty close to enlightened in my book.

Antidepressants, meditation, the Goddess, and antibiotics. Making up your healing path. There’s a time and place for everything. Knowing the right time and the right place is how you become your own healer.

How to be truly wise? Rock your paradoxes.

True wisdom usually holds and transcends opposing points of view. Wisdom knows that there is always an exception to the rule, that there is a time and place, and that a case-by-case approach is divine protocol.

When “sacred” sex goes south. Freeing our bodies…messing with our minds.

Groupthink is difficult to detect in the self-help space because it’s often spun as progressive and undogmatic. It shimmers with a counter-culture glow.

Danielle-LaPorte-The-Lie-Of-Affiliation

THE LIE OF AFFILIATION. Or…why group-think can really suck.

THE LIE OF AFFILIATION. The Lie of Affiliation says, “Groupthink is good think.” We could also call this The Lie of Being Cool. Join me for lunch on Facebook Live tomorrow [12pm PST/ 3pm EST] and we’ll bite into the dynamics of group-think (it can really suck) and I’ll do Q&A!

White-Hot-Truth

I want you to love and trust yourself more intensely.

So White Hot Truth is about questioning our quest. Not so that we can get all debaucherous (tho’ that might be exactly what your spiritual evolution requires at the moment. In which case, go for it.) so we can craft a spirituality for ourselves that feels inspired and liberating — instead of a checklist for getting holistic and moral approval ratings.

One of the truest conversations I’ve had - Danielle LaPorte-Audio.

Lies. Truth. Porn. Friendship. Sickness. Motherhood. And softness. One of the truest conversations I’ve had.

Like most humans, on the deepest level, I crave to be known. This conversation is a knowing — one of the truest recorded conversations that I’ve had. Being with my friend Jono Fisher, The Wakeup Project founder, is just…so…deeply comforting.

A few things I believe-laporte-danielle

I think we’re obsessed with protein, and sunscreen, and sameness. A few things I believe…

I think we’re obsessed with protein, and sunscreen, and sameness. And we forget, more tragically than most can understand, that consuming LIGHT is how we grow — in union, and with distinction.

Danielle-LaPorte-Divine-Feminine

Misunderstanding the “Divine Feminine.” And Masculine. And the love between them.

The “divine” in Divine Feminine is about wholeness. It’s where The Great Father and The Great Mother are unified. And that divinity then expresses itself through a feminine energy vehicle, upholding and emphasizing the key qualities and interests of the feminine.

Naïve vulnerability vs. Awake vulnerability

Naïve vulnerability vs. Awake vulnerability. Naïve vulnerability wants to be saved. Awake vulnerability is saving herself by respecting her Truth.

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos-Danielle-LaPorte

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos…and other things to weed out of your life.

Women and feminine-identified types specialize in beginnings, not endings. We prefer to nurture, not exclude. This of course is spectacular and divine and… challenging. Because destruction is essential to creation. Something has to die for your dream to be born. And by that I mean… you may need to cut off it’s life/lie supply and send it down the river to die.
