lady gaga and your dreams come true

About four years after Stefani Germanotta was performing unplugged at NYU, she picked up a Grammy and started a sold out world concert tour, as Lady Gaga. A lot can happen in a short time.

What does Lady Gaga have to do with your life intention? She’s the poster chicka for swift success. Not overnight success (she started playing piano at age four, she opened up for New Kids on the Block, she got dropped by her first record label.) But swift success. Swift, like momentum and velocity. Swift, like one US presidential term, the time until your baby starts pre-school, the time it takes for you to go through two cell-phones.

For anyone who is dreaming, striving, believing, aiming, add this to your arsenal of faith n’ sweat: you need to believe in speed.

When you believe that things can happen quickly for you, you’re adding another level of creative input into your life script.

This is a creative exercise (as in creating your reality,) suspend these notions: you’ve got to pay your dues, it’s all in the timing, one step at a time, don’t get ahead of yourself, good things come to those who wait.

Now, believe in speed. Imagine that within about four years you could have what you’re striving for, and much much more. Think about everything amazing that could be happening for you just one year from today … then quadruple the amazingness. Think bigger. Imagine huge. Ponder colossal. Feel the zoom in your cells. Meditate on the feeling of arriving.

What happens when certain, big, success feels nearer to you? Your projected amazing future begins to rub off on you. You exhibit successful tendencies, you make more confident choices, you stick your chin out, and you keep your stamina up. You get in front of time. You start thinking like a star. Rising. Faster.

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.

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.
