monthly round up: october was…gripping, generous + golden

: spiritual salve for worrywarts. There’s pain all around us. It’s tempting to fret, pace, yank your hair…and worry yourself into the ground. But it’s not pro-active. So refuse to do it. TRANSFORM ANXIETY INTO ACTION, and be helpful, instead of harrowed.

: transparency as a teaching tool. As Malcolm Gladwell says, “Authenticity is the new cool.” So give details. Name names. Spell it out. And share your Big Emotion Moments. Dig into my TRIED AND TRUE transparency techniques to rock your blog, your biz, and your authenticity barometer.

: self-flagellation, posing as purity. Minimalism is the go-to trend across the blogosphere. I’m all for white space, clarity and concision — but there’s a dark side to the de-cluttering movement. Fear, loathing and self-denial can masquerade as “right action.” And that ain’t right. AFFIRM YOUR GOODNESS, not your lack.

: deeply influential literary gems. I love books. Understatement of the eon. So I offered up a three-part catalogue of books you oughta absorb: 9 books that could deeply influence how you live, 9 books for deepening how you create + work, and 5 books for navigating the complexities of love. Your winter reading list = sorted. And you’re welcome.

interviews

: talkin’ aesthetics + functionality with Snoack Studios. Shannon of Snoack Studios interviewed me this month. And she got me to admit that I’m a “creative control freak.” Deal with it. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW.

: juggling + philosophizing with Wicked Whimsy. Michelle of Wicked Whimsy peppered me with questions about corporate ladders, spirituality and cashflow. Also — she has sapphire hair, like a peacock. Worth a peek, for that fact alone. READ THE FULL INTERVIEW.

Into November, onward + upward + forward, forever…

ARE YOU READY TO FORGIVE? The complicated, gritty path to grace. It’s complex. It’s confusing. It’s deeply particular. It’s the through-line of most mystical teachings: Forgiveness.

Deep-Positivity

Why positive thinking might be leading us in the wrong direction.

Deep positivity.
If there could be a slogan for manifestation theory, this would be it:
Energy follows thought. Energy follows thought. Energy follows thought. And by the way…energy follows thought.
Manifestation happens from the mind.
For it to work effectively, you must achieve clarity of desire, root into the depths of positivity, fend off doubts with Faith, and repeat. Every minute of every day, give or take.

Antidepressants, meditation, the Goddess, and antibiotics. Making up your healing path. There’s a time and place for everything. Knowing the right time and the right place is how you become your own healer.

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.

THE LIE OF AFFILIATION. Or…why group-think can really suck.

THE LIE OF AFFILIATION. The Lie of Affiliation says, “Groupthink is good think.” We could also call this The Lie of Being Cool. Join me for lunch on Facebook Live tomorrow [12pm PST/ 3pm EST] and we’ll bite into the dynamics of group-think (it can really suck) and I’ll do Q&A!

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.

A few things I believe-laporte-danielle

I think we’re obsessed with protein, and sunscreen, and sameness. A few things I believe…

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.
