current love list: tenderlogic, green love, Chopin
Time for my as-the-spirit-moves-me, random, non-affiliate commission, pure adoration list o’ what I’m loving lately. Dip in.
Navjit (Nav-geet) Kandola just launched TenderLogic.com. Nav is a soul sister. We’ve been on psychic speed dial for almost twenty years. Navjit is a spiritual technician. A guide. A star. I think her SOUL VIDEO CONSULTATIONS are going to rock the coaching scene. Go here to get some glow.
OneWord.com. This is so beautifully simple, and sweetly clever — I wished I’d thought of it. “You’ll see one word. You have sixty seconds to write about it. …”
Or…let someone else analyze and poetize for you…
GET A PERSONALIZED INSTA POEM. This is brill. Samantha Reynolds really launched her “poem a day” project: Bentlily.com (And this, Love Is Not Fragile, makes my heart melty-achey-happy.) But, THIS INSTA POEM generator is genius. Answer some questions and they’ll craft an on-the-soul-target poem for you. My poem stopped me in my tracks. It’s like The I Ching, slam poetry style.
Chopin Nocturnes. Sublime. Makes me feel grand and speck-like all at once.
UliMana Organic Raw Chocolate Truffles. Kris Carr sent me a crate of these and now they’re hidden in every cupboard, and my favorite thank you and hostess gift. (Best consumed while listening to Chopin’s Nocturnes.) Speaking of the Green Goddess herself…
Kris Carr and her Crazy Sexy Community bundled the best smoothie + juice recipes together. Delicious. Get JUICED.
The current issue of Shambhala Sun Magazine is particularly good. Courtney Martin’s article on Good Failure has us “reclaiming failure as the mark of a dream worth having.” And this piece called, The Wanderer, by Andrea Miller about the famed monk, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, who “left it all” to presumably become a wandering yogi, will have you see that there are many paths to enlightenment.
This quote from Pablo Neruda:
I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees
SarahSelecky.com. I read everything she writes about writing.
Dr. Sara Gottfried. I read everything she writes about girly parts and hormones.
Chocolat. I re-watched this movie with my 7 year old boy. I remembered how sensual kindness is; how hot Johnny is without eyeliner; how incredible Carrie-Ann Moss’s bone structure is; how sweet community can be.
7 business truths I wish I’d been brave enough to believe, 732 days ago. By Alexandra Franzen. Read it.
Citrine crystals. I’ve recently become obsessed with them. Citrine is a great stone for manifesting and radiating your creativity. Ommmm.
Mason Jennings. Perfect for making soup and magic. Especially on a rainy day.
