Dying To Be Me. One of the most powerful books I’ve read.

Some books are transmissions of energy. There’s something ineffable beyond the words themselves, and you know that you’re getting a download as you connect with the text. I felt this the first time I picked up The Course In Miracles when I was fifteen, and Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now in 2004, and with this very new book…

Dying To Be Me: My Journey From Cancer, To Near Death, To True Healing, by Anita Moorjani is a transmission of insight that puts the keys to liberation in your hands.

The back story: Anita in a hospital bed. Stage 4 cancer, open lesions, organs shut down, the doctors tell her family to say their goodbyes as she slips into a thirty-hour coma…from which…she emerges — with luminous understanding about the cosmology of life. Within weeks of re-awakening from her coma, there is not a trace of cancer in her body. Her lesions, that were so deep that the doctors were planning reconstructive surgery, heal fully. Apparently there is no documented case of such absolute recovery from such pervasive cancer. But this healing miracle is only part of the gift that Moorjani has become.

The knowledge that Anita Moorjani brought back with her is pure soul tonic. I felt relief on a cellular level reading this book. My spirit exhaled, “Yes.”

Anita says many times throughout the book that the boundlessness of her multidimensional download is incredibly difficult to put into words, “Imagine trying to describe a new color to someone that they’ve never seen.” But beautifully and plainly spoken, she brings you beyond the confines of ideologies and judgements that bind us to sickness, self hatred, and fear. The “magnificence” she speaks of pours out self love, knows of oneness, trusts in joy, and bends time with intention.

Anita and I both spoke at a Hay House conference recently and I was able to hear her Near Death Experience and revelations in person. She is as modest and radiant as you might hope.

When she experienced “heaven as a state and not a place,” she felt, “The universe finally makes sense!” After experiencing Dying To Be Me, you might feel the same way.

What’s underneath wishful thinking?

Wishful thinking is tangled up with craving. We want what we want. So we ignore the evidence that we’re very likely not going to get what we want out of a situation. Craving… wishing. Craving… denial. Craving… tolerating. It’s a wishous cycle.


Don’t worry about being invited back. My Manifesto for Creativity.

Meaningfulness. Reveal myself. Be compassionate. Don’t worry about being invited back. Go there. xo. I jotted this down when I began writing my book. I wanted a manifesto and it had to happen quickly because…I had a book to write.


Life is what happens on the way to the finish line.

If you’re not loving what it feels like between your various life destinations, then get off the ride. Burn the itinerary. Fuck “motivation” and be still long enough to find your inspiration.


Let the Love in. Because, “It’s an honour to help you.”

I was in a spiritual tizzy — that’s an esoteric term for 80% emotions-running-wild, and 20% having faith that everything will work out. I can’t remember what it was over (probably divorce papers, or a publishing contract, or buying a house. But it involved documents and beaucoup emotion.)


What to do after you have a breakthrough. (You’re going to shrink after you expand, so, listen closely.)

Threshold, crossed. You got there. After the grinding, the repetitive strain, the cord-cutting, the screams of release, the bliss of relief — the training paid off. Muscle burn got you across the finish line. Soul fire resurrected you. BREAKTHROUGH.


Why jerks show up in your life.

We attract jerks to burn karma — old agreements to be broken in current time, vows to be rescinded, slates to be wiped clean. We attract jerks for contrast — jerks show us what deception and manipulation feels like. They show us how we DON’T want to feel — which is excellent intel for knowing how we DO want to feel.

The epidemic of the brittle woman and the salvation of softness

You know her. Maybe you are her. Or you were. Sisters, please don’t become her. Sisters (and brothers), let’s heal her. She’s giving up on love and life. Sometime, as a result of having to try too hard to get her very essential Soul needs met she… just… got… worn…down. She had no choice but to stiffen. Then she realized that she had a choice.

5 pointers for developing freedom-based creativity & work habits. Which is to say, you’ve got to dissolve guilt and rock your own rhythm.

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.

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.
