Desire brewing. My big announcement with Hiro Boga.

The details behind the launch of my brand new program “Desire,” finding flow in the creative process and a promise made that you will want to hear. Find it all in conversation with Hiro Boga– writer, teacher and creator of Become Your Own Business Adviser.

A highlight:

HB: Since you are working on this program on desire, would you tell me something about how that began? What calls to you, how do you respond to that call, how do you choose this project as opposed to all the other things that might be calling to you?

DL: Well, “Desire,” in particular, has been sitting there for about five years and I was actually writing this book before I was writing THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS. What I’m noticing now, far enough into my creative career, is that it almost feels like there’s a queue. There’s a line-up of projects. They have a line-up of babies waiting to come in.

I have learned to pay attention to the one who’s talking the most and the loudest.

Then another pattern of mine… I don’t think it works this way for everybody but once I’m a YES, I’m an immediate YES. Like when I got the idea for Fire Starter I walked downstairs into the kitchen and said to my husband, I’m launching something called the Fire Starter Sessions. It’s going to be an online program. I’m going to do it in three months. I’m done. And then I emailed my assistant at that time saying, so this is what we’re doing. This is all within an hour. The next morning, I announced it on all my social media and my website. I picked the Wednesday. There’s no turning back after that.

HB:
So you make a really public commitment to that.

DL:
Always. I’m about to– I mean today, actually. Here we go. Another surprise, something sacred with Hiro.

This is my most official, official announcement that we will be launching the “Desire” program. The current subtitle of the program is the Map to What You Truly Want and it will launch either late November or the first week in December of 2012. It will be unlike anything out there. It’s going to be gorgeous.

HB: Wow.

DL:
I just decided this yesterday. It’s been brewing.

HB: So for you, setting that intention in a really public way actually activates all the skills and resources and both internal energy and external energy to make it happen. Is that right?

DL: Yes, two things happen. One, I can’t wait to give it. I would say that to everybody. You’ve got to feel like this kind of urgency. It has got to have that- you know that feeling where you find just the right gift for somebody. It’s like that Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever you’re feeling and you can’t wait for them to open it. Oh my god, I can’t wait. Open it! I know we haven’t had dinner yet but open your gift!

I want to feel that way with every project. I really want to tell everybody. And magic things happen when you put a stake in the material world. This is my land and this is the date and watch what happens.

A note on CREATIVE FLOW…. I’m “working” today. Wasn’t planning on it. It’s a sunny, gorgeous Vancouver Sunday. But since my kid is running around the block with his neighbour buddies, I’m using this time to write, respond, vision.

456x456-Are you hanging by a thread?

Are you hanging by a thread?

It’s hard. It’s wrenching. It’s incredibly painful and it’s difficult to feel lightness. Or to see clearly. Hanging by a thread can be really disorienting. What you’re going through undeniably sucks. It may be hard to believe right now, but not only will it be okay, not only will you get through and over this, you will thrive again…

456x456-in praise of women- magnificent, spacious, fiery witnesses

in praise of women: magnificent, spacious, fiery witnesses

I often hear “women are our own worst enemies” in terms of our culture. I’m tired of that argument. I think everyone is their own worst enemy, and I don’t think it’s about something women have specifically against each other.

There’s a difference between the definition of happiness and the definition of joy. It’s valuable to be aware of this because when things get tough, logic might want you to default to despair, or utter sadness or worse, you might think you have to choose between hardship and joy, or support and separation, or light and dark…

Do you know the story of the man who was hitting himself over the head with a hammer? “Why do you keep hitting yourself with that hammer?” a shocked passerby asked him. “Because,” the man replied, “it’s going to feel so good when I stop.”

You will be called on to expand. And this is why we practice.

I travelled to Dharamshala, India with six friends to meet with The Dalai Lama. It was cell-altering and heart-expanding. The week before our arrival, there had been a horrible event in which some monks were murdered — most shockingly, by other monks. The story was on everyone’s mind and in our small, private meeting with His Holiness, the first thing we did was offer our condolences. His response captivated me…

You’re going to feel guilty

The guilty feeling associated with desire, with going after what you want, with transforming….you know that feeling? It’s like tar on your mojo. Maybe you were raised in an environment where desire was considered a negative thing. Or your social circle constantly reinforces the message that you shouldn’t dare to bust out. And maybe you frequently feel guilty for wanting what you want — and you know that it’s causing blocks in your life…

Love your sadness. It won’t last.

I was feeling it. Pure sadness — the inescapability of it plowing through the softest part of me. When you’re in that kind of painful place you’ll try to climb the walls to get away from it. You want it over with. “Love your sadness. It won’t last long.” A friend texted me late at night. I caught it just as I was turning off my bedroom light….
