before you bust a move, pick up your psychic telephone

or: how to use your psychic powers on mice and men

I was working for an organization in New Mexico. Our office was an old compound of adobe buildings, off a bumpy side road, by a field. One summer, we were overrun with mice.

We couldn’t do traps. Cruel. Messy. Yuck. The humane traps (Mister Mouse crawls into a plastic house and a door shuts. He waits to be picked up. You then drive Mister Mouse forty nine miles away and set him free.) Not very practical when you’re dealing with an extended family reunion of mice.

So we did what any self-respecting cosmic team would do with a vermin problem: we meditated. Our plan: one fifteen minute meditation as a group at the end of a staff meeting, and anyone who wanted to keep sending out their own thought waves throughout the day, then, yeah! The meditation: “Dear Mice. We love and respect you. And, this is our space. Please leave within the next two weeks. If you choose not to leave within two weeks, we’ll set traps and kill you. Bless.”

I guess mice can tell time, because in two weeks, nary a mouse turd could be found. They va-moused out of our space.

The moral of the story, in three points:

USE YOUR PSYCHIC TELEPHONE. IT’S FREE!

1. Speak with your mind, grasshopper. Engage your inner resources first. Meditate before you activate. We exert so much physical energy and time trying to make things go our way. Memos, conversations, to-do lists and PLANS–all those damn plans. Try using a different channel to get your point across.

Another case in point: I needed to fire a staff member. It’s something everyone would prefer to avoid. So I sent her this psychic text, “This isn’t the right place for you. Find another job, or I’ll fire you in two weeks.” She quit, head held high. I didn’t need to say a word. Mind-email? We’ll never know, but it’s a lot more efficient than handing someone a box of tissue and their last cheque on a Friday.

2. Have a very clear intention. You can’t be all like, sorta kinda, maybe, possibly wishy washy. State your position and send a clear signal.

3. Intend for the highest and best outcome for all, and deeply accept that it is ultimately out of your hands. Speaking psychically to people (and animals) isn’t about manipulating them. That kind of mind screwing will give you much-deserved karmic migraines. The more win-win your wordless intentions are, the more you increase your chances of being heard.

Does this work for wooing men? “Call me by Friday or I’m dating Buddy.” Maybe. Does it work for getting your building superintendent to clean up the lobby? “Mr. Rogers, the foyer needs love so we’ll all feel better. PS, You’re awesome.” It might. Does it work for sending love, and light, and new possibilities in a potentially all-powerful instant? If you believe it, it does.

If you’d like to make a call…
please dial in to your solar plexus.
Speak clearly, kindly, truly.
Operators are standing by.

Collective-Pain-Danielle-Laporte

Are you feeling the “collective pain”? Here’s how to manage that…

A lot of us are experiencing our own personal pain AND tapping into global, collective pain at the same time. We’re marching, or emphatically not marching. We’re crying in the kitchen, out of the blue. We’re heavy with emotion by noon.

My loves, it’s critical that you let the pain move through you. You have to keep letting it go. And like, there’s no need to worry about being too detached from what’s going on. Because there’s new pain arriving daily. If you’re awake you will hurt. I’m with you…in profound agony over the state of the world. And, my faith and resolve are brighter than my doubt and stronger than my grief. It’s an hourly practice to find that balance.

How to be yourself…when you can’t really be yourself.

“Just be yourself.” Most common self-help sermon ever. I’ve been preaching it for years. Except…being yourself doesn’t always work. Sometimes it’s dangerous. Sometimes it’s not worth the frustration or the futility.

Danielle-LaPorte-Having-Faith-Audio

There is nothing passive about “having Faith.” (And how to deal with doubt).

Faith is the “work” in “Light work”. It scrubs and rinses and steadily erases doubt. Faith stays on doubt’s ass: I see you. I dissolve you. I replace you with Faith. And then doubt will pop up again. And Faith is right there: Yep, I heard you. I choose faith. Yep, I know the odds, I choose Faith. And because Faith knows the natural order of things, she says to doubt: You’ll probably be back later this week. And you might even distract me. But I’ll still choose Faith. No anger, just clarity. No complaints, just pure, fiery resolve.

All of my failures can be traced to my silence.

Truthing isn’t necessarily easier to do, but it brings incredible ease to your life. And the more you do it, the easier it becomes. The courage, the classy delivery, the compassionate humour, it all becomes more accessible when you’re using your voice everyday.

Will you do as much as it takes, as long as it takes? 2017 is asking.

Listen. It’s time. This is it. 2017. New. Year. Now. I for one am going deeper and higher. I’m reaching inward for my strength, facing my Soul, and I’m going to pour my devotion to the Light all over every word I speak, and every human I encounter and adore and hold, and every cause I’m working for.

How to wish someone well — in a way that will blow your life wide open.

We’ve all been hurt. Screwed over. Taken for granted. Unseen. And once we untangle our hearts and egos from those painful interactions, sometimes we can still manage to send someone positive vibes.Harm done, but okay. Everyone did their best. Onward. I wish them well. And even though you’d never commune or collaborate with that person ever again, you really mean it…
