We partied. And we have the pictures to prove it.

Sold out. Full out. Hearts full. NYC + Toronto FIRE STARTER launch parties. Two of the best nights of my life.

Some kids dreamed of accepting The Academy Award. I dreamed of book launch parties.

I knew we had about 500 people coming in NYC. But I didn’t really get it until I peeked out of the club door and…there was a line up around the block. So I grabbed some drink tickets, got handy with the hugs, and we flowed on to the dance floor.

In both NYC and Toronto I could have cried 900 times…deep friends, first clients, old bosses, long-time readers, eager book buyers, gorgeous women, hot dudes. Kisses, Corona, candle light, and DJ June spinning tunes.

But mostly… the love. In Toronto the bartender said to me, “Your people are the best kind of people!” Well, YA! In NYC, people were so thrilled to meet each other. Things happened. Things I can’t write about. Things other people can write about if they dare.

Infinite thanks to my soul sisters: Gabrielle Bernstein, Marie Forleo and Kris Carr. Deepest deep love. NYC would not have happened without the radiantly responsible Rachael Maddox, Dave Ursillo, and Anne Moller. My Toronto angel was the one and only Tanya Geisler, with Annika Martins and the crew from Random House in the wings. It was all captured on film by Jen Lemen and Janine Therese.

And I could write a tome dedicated souly solely to Angie Wheeler. Nothing happens without her. Angie is my archangel of all. She orchestrates and improves my shizzle and buoys me at every turn with things like, “You get some sleep, I’ve got it handled.” Or “I did it yesterday.” And “We’re going to do it this way.” If I get a new tattoo, it might say Angie Forever.

There are more parties to come. For starters…

Danielle-LaPorte-its-not-always-self-sabotage

It’s not always self-sabotage. It’s just…what it takes.

Lightwork can be a fight. If you think being on the “spiritual” side of progress guarantees you harmony, then either you haven’t been at it long enough or you’ve been playing it safe. Harmonizing, healing, serving, shining…it’s messy work. Beautiful. Worth it. But messy.

Are-you-tired

Are you tired? Or just really (justifiably) angry?

Of course there are times — perhaps entire years, when we are bone-baked exhausted. But being fed up is not the same as being fatigued. In the seasons when we are vivacious and brimming with life, we can’t let ourselves slip into the reflex of heaviness.

A question for your growth

A question for your growth (that has nothing to do with quick, easy or “proven.”)

Here’s the most powerful question (that we too often forget) to ask ourselves when we’re on the hunt for solutions: “But… what suits me?”

Deep Positivity Danielle LaPorte

“Deep positivity” vs. “positive thinking”

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.

The Ultimate and Immediate Why

The Ultimate and Immediate Why

The Ultimate and Immediate Why:
Swallowing fresh water,
inhaling
clean air
through our mouths,
speaking
words of adoration, and
kissing.

The lie of inadequacy.

We’ve got to fall for some lies to get to our truth. The Lie of Inadequacy. It goes like this…“You were born defective, not good enough, flawed.” nooo! Erase erase. Blow it UP.

Loving yourself Danielle LaPorte

Loving yourself…when you hate yourself.

If “love” is confusing, then “SELF-love” can be mystifying. So I’m pressing pause on the self-love conversation to insert the word compassion… The feel of “compassion” is more direct and melting for most of us. So let’s start there. Because…

[VIDEO] You are the Guru

NOBODY knows better than you what’s right for you. NOBODY. Let me say what I really mean: NOBODY.
Advice? Get some. Oracles? Consult them. Friends? Worship them. Actual gurus? Honour them. Final say? YOU. All you. No matter what.

The best self help is self compassion danielle laporte.jpg

The best self-help is self-compassion.

The best self-help is self-compassion. When you give yourself credit for making it this far in life—and still being a Gentle Soul—then you’ll know the Truth of Love. When, in a courageously still moment you hear yourself say, “I have everything I need right now,” then you’ll know the Truth of Faith.

Courageous Minority-1

The Courageous Minority vs. the road to mediocrity (which is always really…safe.) Safe. The road to mediocre is always really…safe. And in terms of fulfillment, “safe” is really, really dangerous.
