Make space for your future to show up

1556W-Make space for your future to show up@2x

You want the dream job on the other side of the country? But they’re not hiring yet. Never mind that. Get your affairs in order so that you could move on short notice. Get into position to take your position.

You want to bring a committed, romantic love into your life? Then maybe you should break off the uncommitted stuff you’re doing “in the meantime”, (just a suggestion.)

Send a clear signal to Life that you’re ready — and available — for what you really desire.

You want to create more of your art (the book, the blog, the band, the products) — even tho’ you’re not sure what that is yet? Clear your calendar, your desk, your garage so that when inspiration strikes (and it will) you can act on it.

Sometimes when you fill up your day planner, your closets, your dance card, you’re telling the universe that you’re too busy to pick up the gift you ordered — your hands are full, you like being distracted, you’re okay with killing time.

Just because what you want isn’t here today, doesn’t mean you should fill the empty space while you wait for it to arrive.

In the meantime’ kind of living can be a toxic compromise.

The thing is, letting some of the spaces in your life be blank and open can be uncomfortable. Without stuffing your time and space, you’re going to feel how the wind moves through the holes in your life, and it might make you wince a bit. Clearing out the metaphorical living room in your psyche to make room for finer furniture can feel, well, empty.

Or… it can feel totally exhilarating. The rush of openness, the obviousness of possibility … the space to unfold into deeper truths … that attract brighter realities. Space.

Slow down so what you want can catch you.
Say no, thank you today so you can say yes tomorrow.
Make space for what you want to show up.

the euphoria of admitting when it sucks

I hear this time and again, “If I just hang in longer… Maybe she’ll come up to speed. It might sell in the summer. If I dig deeper, I’ll learn to love Excel.” Fess up – it ain’t workin’. You’re smart to see it. You’re brilliant if you move on…

Infidelity, sisterhood, and self-respect either way. #Lemonade and Love.

My feelings about infidelity, monogamy and commitment — and how they’ve evolved over time. How I define Divine Fidelity a la David Deida’s 3 stages of relationships. And my deep respect for Beyonce’s art and every woman’s choice of devotion.

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Comparison is a killer. Cut it out.

Bless the people you feel envious of. The rich, skinny, in-love, confident, powerful people. Quicker than you can say “I wish I had that…,” say to yourself, or even better, to them, “Way to go…you look great…I admire you.” With envy out of the way, you’ll have more space for your own greatness to step forward.

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.

Pressed against a star (a poem for longing to be home.)

You are worth waiting for,
tall beam of Light.
And I will open the door for you like our lives depend on it.

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.

Use your wings

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.

Recovering from self-help exhaustion? Join the club.

My friend Jess Ortner and I had a great conversation about the downer of always trying to be up. Perfect for her podcast called Adventures in Happiness. This is one of my favourite, truly useful conversations for being on the so-called “Path”.
