Manifestation is a technology. And like all technologies, I pray we’ll use it appropriately: to generate more loving realities for ourselves and each other. All the material stuff can be fun, and we deserve comfort and ease—without question. But let’s get on with manifesting fresh air, and clean water, and relationships that nourish and heal. And on the way to doing that, self-worth will unfold. We will be manifesting love.
“Negative” feelings are part of the human experience. There’s no plainer or profound way to put that. To deny the negative feelings is to resist the power of our presence—we miss out on LIFE. Pushing away the darkness can be a precursor to numbing out and all kinds of addiction. We have to lean in, embrace it, even.

A choice you make that came with some struggle. To let go. To jump in. To shift your perspective. You did it. How do you know if you’re at peace with it?
May the sweetness of this moment
radiate to all beings everywhere
that we may see the light and resilience we reflect back to one another.
Show me how to love myself truly and entirely.
Show me how to eat, sleep and move my body
for nourishment, restoration, celebration.
Show me how to embody everything that is my joy.

Thirty days of wisdom + art, for more courage, conviction, and hopefulness. You received one letter a day from a different writer to help you keep going.
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...
A healer gave me this medicine when I was crawling back to health: You’ll forget it was this bad. I had to stretch to believe her, but I imagined the future that I most deeply and wildly desired. I dared myself to go beyond the baseline of “well” and “recovered” and into the quantum field of truly better than ever.
I adore this prayer. I think it sums up relentless compassion—it covers all the bases of service and protection.
You see, there is suffering in the sensitivity. It hurts to feel. And we’re raised to strive—to desensitize—and it's killing us. I think the strength is in opening. That opening to feel is where resiliency is born.
Wisdom is so underrated these days, but never mind that. Courage up. Wise people pause. Because they know that when you can be still, you become more real. Deeper. And that’s where the value is.
What becomes possible when you say No? What would open up? Shift. Lighten. Crumble. Dissolve. Melt.
