D Digest: Pain, Betrayal, Healers and Business. Just another month o’ intensity on my site. The June Roundup is here.
12 Things I know about real deal healers
Shamans, intuitives, channellers, mediums, clairvoyants, seers, priestesses, ministers, healers, crystal workers, alchemists, and energy workers. I know them. I started reading books of channelled material when I was thirteen. Went to my first psychic at fifteen. Currently, I have an energy worker on my business payroll. Really.
Love the necessary hard work. #Truthbomb elaborations
And by “necessary hard work” I do not mean: slogging on something you don’t really want to be doing in the first place. This is not about sucking it up or faking it. By “necessary hard work” I mean: FIRST you commit to something that lights you up, pulls you forward, truly inspires you — the career, a relationship, a project (and YOU can be that improvement project, by the way.)
Thrive While You Strive. (Or at least get there alive.) Q&A Spreecast with Danielle LaPorte & Gunnar Lovelace
There’s an Entrepreneur’s Code of Camaraderie that binds us to tell other entrepreneurs how to not screw up majorly. Of course, the first thing you learn is that you’re going to screw up. And then you’re going to get it right. Really right. Then once you pull off a few good things in your career, and if your heart is a gold one, then you become obsessively helpful to other creatives and hustlers.
Been burned? Betrayal, denial, and the bloody beauty of it all.
I’ve been betrayed — severely. Thank God. Betrayal is such a defining experience — it lays your heart bare, and that’s a bloody, good thing. Bloody good. Being betrayed by another person is often (not always,) a reflection of how you were betraying yourself. It’s a lie looking back at you.

You'll do it when you're ready. #Truthbomb elaborations
How many conversations have you had about quitting, moving, entering, leaping. Sometimes you’re that friend who gets listened to over and over. And one day…you’re ready. It usually happens when A) You’re in a sufficient amount of pain, or B) You have a religious moment of inspiration and you just can’t help but expand. And expand you will.
The risky business of being sincere in business
I just moved the closing date of a major business deal for astrological reasons. Our lawyers had already dealt with a lot of back n’ forthing and a last minute twist/untwist. The finish line was in sight, but I was about to yank it. People might be understandably flummoxed. I could have made an excuse for the switch that sounded more, you know, biz legit….
#TellThemNow. The intimacy of gratitude will blow your life wide open.
One of my least favourite behaviours of mine is withholding love. I’m hugely proud to say that it rarely happens. (If you’re going to boast about anything, let it be your capacity for loving.) But it still happens.
Current Pain or Departing Pain? How to assess your agony.
Current pain is the hurt you’re carrying with you today. It’s in the vicinity of your core. It doesn’t matter when the pain was inflicted — a few days ago in a meeting, or ongoingly in the way your partner withholds, or by a past childhood trauma. Lingering or acute, if it’s affecting you now — if you’re still healing, it’s real time pain.
Your Inner Child. (I know, I know. GROAN. But hear me out…)
Your actual childhood is only part of your Inner Child story. No one gets out of childhood unscathed because we are so vulnerable as children — even those of us who had pretty good childhoods, (“pretty good childhood” being a very relative term.) We are small and tender. We are stunningly impressionable. And vastly, we’re at the mercy of the grownups around us. Kids are easy to hurt.
