so 7 chicks get into a hot tub… why personal development is profitable

I was in Santa Fe New Mexico this month for the Transformational Speaking Intensive with master trainer, Gail Larsen. It was a mind-altering experience that will inform my self-expression for years. More on that later.

On the last night of the workshop Gail; maestro fresh master coach Susan Hyatt; champion of soulful service Jennifer Louden; unabashedly feminine coach, Julie Daley; clairvoyant (fer real) Naturopath Dr. Diane Chung; the Muse you dream of, Dyana Valentine; and yours truly were hot tubbing in the heavenly hills, talking about…Twitter, cash flow, and cosmic consciousness, of course.

THE A-HA CONVO:

Dyana: I got all these new Twitter followers this week and, like, I’ve barely been on-line. Don’t know where they’re coming from.

Me: thinking to myself…hmmm…I sold lotsa Fire Starters Sessions, and got all these requests this week for one-on-one clients, even tho’ I just doubled the fee and haven’t been on-line in a week.

Dr. Diane: Whenever I do a workshop or retreat, my receptionist calls me to say, “Um, what’s going on? Because the phone is ringing off the hook with new patients.”

It’s the inner work that’s doing the work.
ooooo…ahhhh…hmmm….ya.

the hot tub cosmic profitably theory:

work more on yourself, and the business will work more for you.

dissolve your misconceptions of deserving, and cash flows.

it’s all energy, baby.

We neglected our families and our businesses for six days.
We moved energy. We pursued answers, we asked ourselves new questions.
We cried hard and laughed harder. We spoke little of our actual careers until we came out of the zone of inquiry and training.

TRY THIS:
Move the energy before you make a move for the results.

Want to write a killer chapter? Take a bath.
Want the check to arrive? Give some money away.
Want the love to come? Dance it out in your living room.

Want to slam down your to do list? Take the day off.

It’s not always a doing.
It’s a new seeing.
And people see you back.

How you listen is how you live. (A poem for being of service.)

You may hear this as an order, an invitation, or as the opportunity of lifetimes.

How you listen is how you live.
Can you hear the women crying?
Can you hear the soil gasping for clean air?
And did you hear that? That’s the sound of a good man asking, How can I serve?

How do you serve?

Danielle-Laporte-Gift-Transaction

So, is this a gift, or a transaction? Because…your entire life is not a business deal.

I’ve been thinking a lot about transactional giving these days. I’ll tweet about you if you tweet about me. They owe me a favour. You listen for five minutes to them so they’ll listen when it’s your turn to talk. Even Stevens. Transactional giving can be a beautiful commerce of support, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with that interplay. But if all of our giving is to secure our getting…then, well, it’s gross.

Danielle-Laporte-Love-the-egg-you're in

Love the egg you’re in. (This is not a sermon on patience. But…)

Savour the simplicity of your pre-dreams-come-true time. Love the egg you’re in. Because not too long from now–and right on time, you’ll be spreading your wings and life will never be the same again.

Rock your emptiness

Rock your emptiness

But what if we rocked our emptiness? Felt the perimeter of ourselves. Relished the silence. Made friends with the peace that’s always waiting for us. What if we got off on the discomfort of our emptiness and let it be creative tension?

Whats-Underneath-Wishful-thinking

What’s underneath wishful thinking?

Wishful thinking is tangled up with craving. We want what we want. So we ignore the evidence that we’re very likely not going to get what we want out of a situation. Craving… wishing. Craving… denial. Craving… tolerating. It’s a wishous cycle.

Don’t worry about being invited back. My Manifesto for Creativity.

Meaningfulness. Reveal myself. Be compassionate. Don’t worry about being invited back. Go there. xo. I jotted this down when I began writing my book. I wanted a manifesto and it had to happen quickly because…I had a book to write.

Life is what happens on the way to the finish line.

If you’re not loving what it feels like between your various life destinations, then get off the ride. Burn the itinerary. Fuck “motivation” and be still long enough to find your inspiration.

Danielle-Laporte-Let-the-Love-in

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

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.)

what-to-do-after-the-breakthrough-danielle-laporte-social-2-2x

What to do after you have a breakthrough. (You’re going to shrink after you expand, so, listen closely.)

Threshold, crossed. You got there. After the grinding, the repetitive strain, the cord-cutting, the screams of release, the bliss of relief — the training paid off. Muscle burn got you across the finish line. Soul fire resurrected you. BREAKTHROUGH.

jerk-final

Why jerks show up in your life.

We attract jerks to burn karma — old agreements to be broken in current time, vows to be rescinded, slates to be wiped clean. We attract jerks for contrast — jerks show us what deception and manipulation feels like. They show us how we DON’T want to feel — which is excellent intel for knowing how we DO want to feel.
