Our Team’s Core Desired Feelings

When you know how someone on your crew wants to feel, you can do something awesome: You can do what you can to help them feel that way. Like all teams of humans, we fumble and we soar, we create and we retreat. And we definitely fly higher when we steer toward our core desired feelings.


CDF-Danielle_CDF

What I’m doing in 2014 to feel that way:
Launching a magazine! Because that’s some crazy creation, it’s creative bliss, actually. I’m going to take more tango lessons, and when we have our staff retreat, we’re going to jam on how we will up our philanthropic game this coming year. Also: keep up with Sally Kempton’s goddess contemplations, and do some of my own audio-music-spoken word stuff that I can feeling swirling in my psyche. 2014 will be more…sonic for me. And, I’m not booking any more speaking gigs for the year — leaving space for the abundance of space.

What I’m doing this week:
Well the week that I’m writing this, is one of those week’s where I’m writing a LOT. So I’m to the brim with creation — a few new poems have even emerged. On the joy list is making some new music playlists for friends. For The Divine Feminine, I’m reading a great book curated by Sounds True Publishing, called Awakening Kundalini.

What I’m no longer doing:
Staying up too late. This was my thing, and a hard thing to break. But I shut it down earlier, get up earlier and it’s feeding my creativity and health in every way. Joy.

What tunes are revving up your core desired feelings these days?
A lot of Salt n’ Pepa has been happening in my studio this week. Along with: Active Child, Genesis, Townes Van Zandt, Hannah Georgas, and the new Amos Lee.

What are you feeling really grateful for?
Vancouver rain — it’s great for writing.


CDF-Angie-New_CDF

What I’m doing in 2014 to feel that way:
I will commune with nature more, to cultivate the stillness it gives me – back to daily hikes.
I will make more time for prayer – to unplug from pettiness, ego and internal demons, – get free.
I will share myself more with others. Step out. Talk to strangers. Do things that scare me.
I will drop the sugar, and the wheat and all the false comfort foods that keep me “small” & I celebrate the amazing woman I am.

What I’m doing this week:
Bundling myself and my dogs up for a hike.
Praying before I get out of bed in the morning, praying in the shower, praying before I close my eyes.
Cleaning out the kitchen cupboards – tossing the junk!

What I’m no longer doing:
Caring what you think about my life, my desires, or my body.

What tunes are revving up your core desired feelings these days?
Fleurie – Hymn
Beyonce – **Flawless
The Roots – The Fire


CDF-Alex_CDF

What I’m doing in 2014 to feel that way:
Yoga is my go-to alignment practice. Literal as it is, it also provides an opportunity for me to meditate in motion and helps me to put my perspective in proper alignment.

Potency is about creation for me. It means buying art supplies, carving out regular time to make things for fun or as gifts for friends, and investing in classes to learn new skills.

I create reverent celebration by hosting dinner parties, officiating weddings, and stopping to smell the roses (or often stopping to Instagram the roses). Taking time to celebrate the ordinary magic around me helps me to celebrate life with a reverent sense of awe.

What I’m doing this week:
Nightly journaling with a weekly review helps me learn where I’m out of alignment and at the same time helps me work through what I can do to realign.

A vist to the Brooklyn Museum (a 20 minute walk from my apartment) is a great way for me to fill up on inspiration and boost my potency.

My standing Sunday coffee date with a friend who always tells me the truth helps me remember what’s important in the big picture and not to get lost in the daily grind. This non-traditional form of “church” helps me remember to celebrate what’s beautiful in life now.

What I’m no longer doing:
Checking my phone at dinner.


CDF-Reema_CDF

What I’m doing in 2014 to feel that way:
I fulfilled a huge dream of mine recently and bought my first horse, Tex! Time with him makes me feel every single one of my CDFs, so I know 2014 is going to be a good one. :)

I also want to focus on getting my body CLEAN. I’ve always had ups and downs when it comes to my eating habits and weight, so I am vowing to myself that 2014 is going to be the year of clean eating and healthy living. More greens, movement, and meditation.

What I’m doing this week:
Allowing myself an extra hour of sleep if I need it. Making sure to get my water + lemon juice in the mornings. Carving out time to spend with my horse every day.

What I’m no longer doing:
I’m letting go of my tendency to over-think + over-plan, and instead am just going to DO.


CDF-Jenn_CDF

What I’m doing in 2014 to feel that way:
Growing in faith. Doing everything with love to allow amazing things to happen. Believing that all things, good or bad, work together for my good. Investing my energy, time, and money on significant things. Keeping emotions in check and controlling my reactions. Going out of town once a month and being with nature once a week. Attending my health needs.

What I’m doing this week:
Fixing my daily devotion schedule (I’ve been skipping days which is not good). Doing an hour of exercise per day. Go to the beach!

What I’m no longer doing:
Going back to my old life. Taking important people for granted. Being impulsive.

What tunes are revving up your core desired feelings these days?
(Never Gonna) Steal My Joy by Mandisa
Free To Be Me by Francesca Battistelli
Gold by Britt Nicole


CDF-Amanda_CDF

What I’m doing in 2014 to feel that way:
I’m embracing a new, less conventional career that allows more freedom and independence. Continuing on my unique spiritual journey through daily reading and reflection. Exploring more—in places, people, and myself. Also just having some FUN, dammit, and being 24.

What I’m doing this week:
Something creative every day, i.e.: writing, drawing, making music. Exploring or trying something new every week. Purposefully setting aside time every evening to unplug and turn inward.

What I’m no longer doing:
Feeling guilty for enjoying life’s many gifts.

What tunes are revving up your core desired feelings these days?
Mazzy Star
Zee Avi
Yuna
Passion Pit
Lorde

What’s a goal that you’re focusing on this year?
To make a geographic move somewhere that allows me to spend more time in nature, which lends to my CDFs.

What are you feeling really grateful for?
Freedom to change my mind and act on it.

The Principles of Active Waiting vs. feeling-like-a-loser, losing-your-mind kind of waiting…

I was at a friend’s cluttered apartment and he was saying how much he wanted to have a live-in girlfriend. And I was like, “Dude, where would she put her stuff?” He got his tidy on to make space for the live-in love he was waiting to find. That’s active waiting — happily preparing for what you trust is on its way to you.

this video has been getting a LOT of attention

What are you willing to do for your creative dream? Are you willing to transform? To give it up; be the fool; re-write your story; not recognize yourself; believe differently; be something, someone, you have not yet known? It does take a “miracle mindset”. And…

Some marketing know-how. Cosmic meets pragmatism.

You were born for this. See what I mean…

We believe in something bigger than ourselves. We understand that the cultural obsession with productivity is killing our joy & harming the planet. We KNOW the world needs leaders who uphold a triple bottom line—economic, social, environmental. So. This message is for you. (Especially if you’re a Creative, a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur—or want to be.)

How to be wildly successful

How to be wildly successful—on your terms

If you’ve been trying to turn your business or art into a profitable vehicle that makes a difference in the world, I’m all in to help make that happen. There is Soul work involved. There are no shortcuts. But, I’ve got some stories and ideas that could help with learning curves and obstacles…

Naked Prayer

Naked prayer.

I’ve always prayed. To heal. To have. I pray for people I love and people I have a hard time liking. I’ve sat in prayer circles petitioning rain and for someone’s cancer to dissolve. I know dozens of prayers from various faiths. I’ve published prayers. Danced them. Sang them. Sweat them. In reverence, in shock, in exquisite thanks.

I pray differently now.
