Purification. Pain. Passion. And marrying your soul. Or…How to tap your deep creativity.

If you want to tap into your deep creativity — the profound, unbridled, genius, life-infusing, widely useful and healing kind of creativity, then purification is essential.

There’s the planned-for kind of purifying. Think: cleanses, information-fasting, silence, burning journals, a sabbatical, closing up shop, burning bridges, letting go of some beliefs. And then there’s the “surprise” kind of purification, which is especially effective (and intense). Think failure of most kinds: a business tanks, a relationship falls apart, a tumour needs to be removed, betrayal implosions.

Purification is gutting. Cleansing. Rectifying. Re-orientating. Divine. It can be wretched or graceful, intentional or shocking. Either way, once you’re hollowed out and detoxed you are going to be way.more.real. Which is to say, wildly more creative. Deeper. This is why I’m always so interested in someone’s personal story of suffering — it points to their greatest potential to create light — or more darkness, in the world. Creation.

So, if you want to tap into deeper creativity, you’ll need to get your purification on. We covered that. Now, to get through such purification, you’ll need passion. You already know what that is. Fire, heart, big vision.

And then — are you still with me? Because deep creativity isn’t for the faint of anything, then you’ll have to:

  • Do the fucking work. Like a grown up.
  • Risk being disliked (actually, it’s not a risk, it’s inevitable.)
  • Risk being very very misunderstood (and you don’t know how much that hurts until it happens.)
  • Say what you feel — in every possible way.
  • Burn the draft, the plan, the strategy that you thought was everything.
  • Pray. On your knees. (When’s the last time you did that?)
  • Cut people out of your life.
  • Humbly make amends.
  • Drop everything and call your energy worker.
  • Become your own Lover.
  • Eat your longing backwards.
  • Keep going, even when it feels like you’re being punished.
  • Become obsessive.
  • Move ON.
  • Be truly compassionate with yourself when it’s so hard to move on.
  • Be incredibly tender, and not just when you’re by yourself, but the exposed with others kind of tender.
  • Take a hit for the team. You don’t think you’re learning lessons just for your own good, do you? Nah.
    Healing for one is healing for all.
     Thank youuuuu.
  • Ask for help — the vulnerable kind of asking when you’re afraid the answer may be no.
  • Be profoundly lonely.
  • Use your own money.
  • Feel it all — in one day.
  • Say Thank You — for all of it. All of it.
  • Let yourself feel very small next to the size of your dream.
  • Get bigger than the size of your dream.
  • Keep doing the fucking work.

In summation:

Want to tap the depths of your creativity? Marry your soul.

See you at the wedding.

True Love,

How to be truly wise? Rock your paradoxes.

True wisdom usually holds and transcends opposing points of view. Wisdom knows that there is always an exception to the rule, that there is a time and place, and that a case-by-case approach is divine protocol.

When “sacred” sex goes south. Freeing our bodies…messing with our minds.

Groupthink is difficult to detect in the self-help space because it’s often spun as progressive and undogmatic. It shimmers with a counter-culture glow.

White-Hot-Truth

I want you to love and trust yourself more intensely.

So White Hot Truth is about questioning our quest. Not so that we can get all debaucherous (tho’ that might be exactly what your spiritual evolution requires at the moment. In which case, go for it.) so we can craft a spirituality for ourselves that feels inspired and liberating — instead of a checklist for getting holistic and moral approval ratings.

One of the truest conversations I’ve had - Danielle LaPorte-Audio.

Lies. Truth. Porn. Friendship. Sickness. Motherhood. And softness. One of the truest conversations I’ve had.

Like most humans, on the deepest level, I crave to be known. This conversation is a knowing — one of the truest recorded conversations that I’ve had. Being with my friend Jono Fisher, The Wakeup Project founder, is just…so…deeply comforting.

I think we’re obsessed with protein, and sunscreen, and sameness. And we forget, more tragically than most can understand, that consuming LIGHT is how we grow — in union, and with distinction.

Danielle-LaPorte-Divine-Feminine

Misunderstanding the “Divine Feminine.” And Masculine. And the love between them.

The “divine” in Divine Feminine is about wholeness. It’s where The Great Father and The Great Mother are unified. And that divinity then expresses itself through a feminine energy vehicle, upholding and emphasizing the key qualities and interests of the feminine.

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos-Danielle-LaPorte

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos…and other things to weed out of your life.

Women and feminine-identified types specialize in beginnings, not endings. We prefer to nurture, not exclude. This of course is spectacular and divine and… challenging. Because destruction is essential to creation. Something has to die for your dream to be born. And by that I mean… you may need to cut off it’s life/lie supply and send it down the river to die.
