Remember, you said Yes to this.

I’m climbing on my second airplane of the day to get to a gig. Flights… heels… luggin’ my stuff thru Chicago O’Hare, inwardly bitching about how bitchy the security people are. “Is my apple really a threat to national security?” “Are you really going to make that very tired lady holding the crying baby walk back through the X-ray cancer machine just to take off her belt?” I mean, really. Authority issues aside…

I realize that my mood is directly affected by my awareness of this fact: I said Yes to most everything that’s in my life. Yes — I want this. Yes — bring it on. Yes — I’m up for this.

I drill down the layers of my choices in that moment:
I chose to take this flight, in fact, I booked this flight myself.
I chose to do the speaking gig. In fact, I’m really honoured to get on that stage.
I chose this career — with intention and passion.
And this, this line up, this hassle, this, whatever it is at the moment, this is part of my choice.
And my core choice is rooted in a desire for joy, usefulness, creative expression, livelihood through service.
And so I remember, Hell ya! I LOVE what I do.
And the security line — it’s really not so bad. I’ve had some wicked laughs in security line-ups with cowboys and big mamas.
And hotel rooms with hard, high pillows that are clearly made for tired giants — well, I can manage.

If I’m a yes to my desire, I’m a yes for what it takes to fulfill that desire.

You’re choosing – all the time. If you’re slogging away at a job you don’t love, look at it this way: you’re choosing to make a living to pay your rent, support your kids, fuel your dreams. Be in the choice of it — that’s where your power is. You’re in a relationship that’s causing you pain — you’re choosing to be in it. Maybe staying will lead to essential growth, or a break through, or deeper love. Or not. But you’re choosing to be in or out. Be in the choice of it — that’s where your power is..

Lost the passion? Feeling the grind? Agitated on your way to achievement?

Take back your power, own your choices, make new ones if it’s time.

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.

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.

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos-Danielle-LaPorte

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos…and other things to weed out of your life.

Women and feminine-identified types specialize in beginnings, not endings. We prefer to nurture, not exclude. This of course is spectacular and divine and… challenging. Because destruction is essential to creation. Something has to die for your dream to be born. And by that I mean… you may need to cut off it’s life/lie supply and send it down the river to die.
