My SuperSoul100 brunch with Oprah (yep!) and support notes for all of you Lightworkers and generally progressive humans…

Blog Header 1

So when Oprah invites you to brunch…you get there. I’m thrilled (an understatement) to announce that I’m alongside some really incredible change-makers on Oprah’s first ever SuperSoul100 List. My respect runs deep for some of these folks, like Lin Manuel-Miranda, Arianna Huffington, India Arie, Jesse Williams, Blake Mycoskie of Toms’ Shoes, Common, Brené Brown, Liz Gilbert, Ava DuVernay, Tony Robbins…and so many sweet friends.

When we met at the OWN Studios in LA (yes, brunch with O and Stedman and friends…it’s mind-blowing and elegant and all wow), Oprah took us back to the earlier days on her show, “You know, twenty years ago the networks didn’t want us to use the world ‘spiritual’ on air,” she said, “I had to sneak on people like Christiane Northrup, Gary Zukav, and Caroline Myss to talk about ‘wellness’.” And with really sincere warmth and kindness Oprah thanked us for being, “nodes of light”, and part of the work that needs to be done in the world. And then we all watched the latest Super Soul Sunday episode and ate our fruit and croissants. Holy Sunday.

All that is incredible, and a career high-light for sure, and…here’s the take-away for me:

 

NOTES ON BEING A LIGHTWORKER, CHANGE AGENT or GENERALLY PROGRESSIVE HUMAN

  1. Remember the mavericks. When you’re using your own platforms (and we all have platforms now) to talk about #blacklivesmatter or women’s rights, or how to be a more conscious partner or parent, or loving human being, remember that so much of what you’ve been taught came down from someone before you who did the work and was willing to put themselves out there. There is a spiral of evolution that we are all riding on, and we each of us fuels each other to move upward. Consciousness has a history.
  2. Change can happen from within the system or without — you have to choose where you will stand.
     
    Some of us break away from traditions and long-standing structures to invent something new on the outside. Some of us stay inside the game, the government, the jobs, the brokenness to be beacons of optimism or positive disruption for improvement. Neither place is better than the other, but it’s good to be clear on where you’re going to stand to do your work. And you have to stand where you feel strong and inspired. Do what works for you and you can do more work for the world.
  3. The work is never done, and you never arrive and it’s great relief to just face this fact. Accepting this gives you both patience and tenacity. And you will need heaps of both to create change.
  4. Find your tribe and love them hard. We need each other, we need each other, we need each other. We need to find the community that nourishes us for two reasons. Obviously, we are stronger in numbers when we gather with like-minded souls. But, often, mostly, in the “real world” we are not always with our spirit kin. We work and play and vote and shop and lobby amongst all kinds of opinions and beliefs. We need our tribe for love fuel. Get seen, be understood, have some laughs with your people, and then go out and do your work in the world. Love in, Love out.

 

To your Super Soul,

So…Let’s talk about your boundaries. For starters, do you have any?

I think at least half of every “problem-solving” conversations I have with my girlfriends is about boundaries. We give it to each other straight up: You need to re-work that contract. You need to just tell her no. You can’t let him do that anymore. Stop. We have ALL been on one side of that conversation.

The initiated woman

She has gone through the eye of a needle, stripped, shed, pared down to the pure pith of her power. The few people who have seen her so naked will never speak of that beauty to anyone else.

How to offer support for someone feeling suicidal (…and hope for anyone in that painful place)

May our suffering transform into liberating strength, and our despair into an incredible beauty that carries us to joy over and over again. And with deepest humility and respect for each person’s path I say: May these words save lives, and may those lives be well lived and wildly loved.

Comparing Your Pain to others Danielle LaPorte

Comparing your pain to others?

Sometimes pain comparison is an act of consciousness. It’s an empowering way to refine your thoughts and create your reality and practiced gratitude. And sometimes…pain comparison only numbs out our truth.And sometimes…pain comparison only numbs out our truth. And when we numb out, we dumb down. We become less conscious, and less useful to those around us. Denying your personal pain won’t lessen other people’s suffering…
