I’m loving…Spark Seekers, The Good Life Project, and bliss.

Spark Seekers

The latest album from Matisyahu, Spark Seekers is high vibration groove-gasmic.

Matis recently took a turn from his Hasidic devotion and freed himself of his beard and forelocks, and black suit. He’s on the other side of his crossroads. I’m at the foot of some new choices for myself and this whole album is resonating in my bones.

Unleash it. Here’s the first release:

Magazine-files unite!

I just discovered CoverJunkie.com through Arem (the smokin’ hot Creative Director of The New York Times Magazine). “Coverjunkie is an addiction to magazine covers you wanna lick. A celebration of creative covers & their ace designers.” Lick ‘em here:

More Love Letters

The World Needs More Love Letters is a community of “love letter writers” who write and leave letters anywhere and everywhere… books, coffee shops, coat pockets, trains — in hopes that the right people will pick them up. Letter writers document the writing and dropping through photographs, blog posts, and social media. It’s started a movement. Love it HERE.

Swimming with wild dolphins.

Wow.

I heart dolphins. Like I never thought I would. This year I wrangled a group of old and new friends for a Dolphin experience in Kona, Hawaii, led by my favourite physicist-philosopher, Peter Russell.

We swam with pods of hundreds of wild spinner dolphins. It was the kind of magic that affects you on a cellular level. We meditated, cooked together, experienced awe together. If you want to plan your own group trip, Peter is offering private, very affordable excursions. Swim!

The Good Life Project

I’ll always love cruising for great TED Talks, but my new smart inspiration fix is Jonathan Field’s Good Life Project interviews — I’ve watched every one. He’s getting some fascinating people together, and he’s an excellent interviewer:

Katherine Preston On The Upside Stuttering, Charles Duhigg On The Power of Habit, Dan Ariely On Why We Lie And How We Decide, Coco and Breezy Light Up the Fashion World, Bart Potenza On Building the Vegan Candle Cafe …

Bliss. In a bite.

These chocolate macaroons from Vancouver’s Organic Lives are better for you than most vitamins. They are the “equivalent amount of antioxidants as two cups of blueberries.” Gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, vegan. Order online HERE.

Poetry from Heidi Rose Robbins

“What bounty is your whole body yearning to receive? Choose it.”

This poem by soulful astrologer, Heidi Rose Robbins, is breathtaking. It’s pure nourishment at the beginning of any project… every week. I close my eyes and just listen. “Water and listen…” :

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.

jerk-final

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.

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.

[VIDEO] Deep creativity and the jitters. Feel the doubt…and be of service anyway.

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…

The difference between happiness & joy. And why it helps to know.

When you’re done fighting for it. The upside of finally giving up.

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.”
