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

What’s the best way to find my passion? What’s the quickest way to lose weight? What’s the sure way to get unstuck? What’s the #1 reason people don’t succeed?

Well…I don’t know. And neither does anyone else. (Except for…you. You know. But we’ll get to that in a minute.) Nobody else knows the answers for you because they don’t know your karma, your calling, your family of origin story, your Dosha, your deepest delight, your greatest pain, or your longest held desire.

We’ve got to dissolve our obsession with fast fixes, proven results, and enviable expertise.
Of course we want to know how others succeeded. I’m the first one to ask someone, How’d you pull it off? And from what I’ve gathered, their path was rarely a fast track, it was deeply personal, and their expertise came with some very unenviable suffering.

You are a gorgeous complexity.

You have noble preferences, and scars that are sensitive to the touch. You have Soul contracts. Your energy-bodies are encoded with potent formulas, and residues of illusions.  And you are changing — so today’s answer to your question may be too loose or too binding tomorrow.

Your situation deserves some deliberation … some customization.

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?”

That question smashes templates, and clocks, and methodologies that never took you into consideration in the first place. That question is smelling salt in a society that is zombified by consensus, and speed, and manipulated “data”.

But… what suits me?”

Finding the answer to that –– from your health advocacy to relationship pride, how you earn, dress, sing, love, give –– requires courage, the courage to experiment. It’s not as quick as a prescription, or as logical as a sales funnel, or ten commandments. And you may not win at the approval game — but the freedom and the power will suit you just fine.


 

Support your people to ask the question that could change so much. Press forward xo

But what’s the MOTIVE? (And BTW, pure motives RULE).

But what’s the MOTIVE? (And BTW, pure motives RULE). Same gesture. Same joke. Same service. Same policy. How can you spot the selfish intention when the branding is so glorious? Or how can you sense the true wisdom when the delivery is so 2000-and tacky? How can you really hear someone when your judgement is clouded by…judgement?

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.

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.
