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

Heyyyy! This is a fresh, new post. I just finished my new book and I’m back here on the site with more Love than ever (and opinions) to give. Thanks for sticking around. xo

 

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.)

I sent a group text to my closest closies to the effect of: “Sisters (and you one mister). I’m on the verge of nuts but awesome. Can you, for real, send prayers up for me this weekend? A meditation. A candle lit on your altar. Whatever feels right. Anything.” I let them know what I was praying for, and then I sent a sweet but obnoxious chain of individual “Thank you” “Thank you” “Thank you” texts. One at a time. For affect.

With IMMEDIATE enthusiasm, every friend texted back to say, Done! Doing it! Holding you in the Light! I love you! You got this!

And one friend sent me a photo of the candle she lit and the sacred object she placed on her altar for me. And she said something that made me stop and inhale the heat of my soft tears:

It’s an honour to help you.

Stopped me.

It’s an honour to help you.

Melted me.

It’s an honour to help you.

Had never occurred to me.

This declaration made poetry out of what I knew to be true: that most people want to help out, but more than that, they cherish the opportunity.

We all have a deep need to be helpful, it’s how the Soul gets its exercise.

It strengthens your heart, and it can be incredibly intimate. And when you really really love someone for who they are, it’s an honour to help them.

So please remember this when YOU need help. When you need someone to babysit so you can sit in a cafe and plan for your wildness to return. When you want someone to talk it through with you (but they’re mostly listening). When you hope someone will be your sacred yes and the one degree of separation you need to opportunity.

When you need back-up on your divine petitions, give someone the honour of lending you their faith.


 

You probably know someone who needs your help, but is afraid to ask. Or maybe you’re the one who needs to do the asking. Either way, send this on. xo

Imagine being better than ever Danielle LaPorte

Imagine being better than ever. For reals.

A healer gave me this medicine when I was crawling back to health: You’ll forget it was this bad. I had to stretch to believe her, but I imagined the future that I most deeply and wildly desired. I dared myself to go beyond the baseline of “well” and “recovered” and into the quantum field of truly better than ever.

10 positive consequences of NOT improving yourself

When you get off of your own case, you tend to ease up on everyone else around you. Which makes you way more fun to be around. Way more. Only good can come of that.

You will probably be more accepting of the way people are.

I was down for the count. Making time to heal became my Soul focus. I had to make some changes. The end of your rope may be a beautiful turning point.
