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.

Comparison is a killer. Cut it out.

Bless the people you feel envious of. The rich, skinny, in-love, confident, powerful people. Quicker than you can say “I wish I had that…,” say to yourself, or even better, to them, “Way to go…you look great…I admire you.” With envy out of the way, you’ll have more space for your own greatness to step forward.

You are worthy of your desires

To say no.

To say yes.

To have your deepest needs met.

To be seen.

To be loved for what is seen.

Feminism is consciousness. Lessons for my imaginary daughter & women — including Kim Kardashian.

All communication begins with intention. A loving word, or flipping someone the bird. A treatise on feminism, or an ageist tweet out to your peers.

Use your wings

You’re cosmic. You are winged with light. And that means you have the power to get where you want to go, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to make excellent decisions.

Just don’t expect crazy people to be sane (cause that’s crazy).

There’s so much sanity to just flowing with someone’s predictability— their norm, their nature. Accept it. Forgive it. Just tolerate it; or peace out if you don’t want it in your life. But don’t waste too much time trying to change it.
