There is a Big Real behind everything we do. Sometimes it’s a negative Big Real. Sometimes it’s a positive Big Real.
For clarity of purpose
May your heart be sweet. May your mind be clear. May your opinions be strong.
The most powerful practice of all has nothing to do with motivation or endurance. The most powerful pain remedy, elixir, solution, galvanizer, waker-upper, injection of strength is…gentleness.
Deep living is dirty, sweaty, gorgeous work. We will accumulate things. But your Soul wants to be mobile, unencumbered — in touch with all the parts of your life.
We’re cozied in the corner booth of the pub with tacos and no one else around. It’s been a doozer of a business week and I have some Very Big Decisions to make. Wait. In case you’re not the story-type, I’ll give you the quick take-away: A short how-to on doing a yearly retrospective.
How do you know when your creation is finished? Like, you’re done working on it and it’s time to let it go.
Hey! AIM for perfection, but it’s out of reach. And hey! That’s okay, because you’ll probably land on something beautiful…maybe your work is really finished. It’s time.
D Digest: Prosperity, Pain & Conscious Optimism. Another month o’ blinding radiance on my site. The July Roundup is here.
A Course In Miracles defines a miracle as “a shift in perception.” I love that, because that definition covers a lot of bases. You can choose to believe in spontaneous healing and create a physiological miracle.
…and by that I mean: Even type-A personalities and wildly productive grown-ups put things off. But what we might critique as procrastination can be a misdiagnosis for instinct. One of the effects of living in a hyper-productive society is that intuitive resistance can get labeled as procrastination. But…
My favourite monks are the ones who sneak a smoke behind the commissary. “Don’t take it too seriously, Danielle.” I’m a vegetarian who LOVES bacon. Sometimes, some trash talk goes grrrreat with yoga. Lighten up. Live.
There’s a lot of pressure to be ready now, yesterday, ASAP. Grow achieve push plow crank rank. But you’re ready when you’re ready. Think of all the times you pushed your friends to dump the fool they were with…for years…
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….
What an Appy Birthday for me last month: Seeing the light choice as the right choice, unlocking the password for Beloved and an Appy #Truthbomb Breakthrough! May Roundup.
Appy Birthday to me! The #Truthbomb App launches today. Candles! Champagne! Truth! I know. #Truthbombs would make a great app. Easy breezy on your phone. Where dat app at? Finally! Here she is! The #Truthbomb App features: 1.300+ of my choicest #Truthbombs, 2. It’s an...
I’m hanging with my shrink and he brings up some inner child stuff. My general response: “Really? Come on. You’re gonna pull the Inner Child card on me? That is SO 1994.” And then we laugh, hard, like we do, and he gives his best exaggerated Jew-Bu shrug, “Well, that’s when the wound happens, so it’s like, hard to get around.”
Take what you want. Leave the rest. Stretch to believe if it feels good to do so. My true nature is luminous. I have everything that I need in this moment to move to the the next moment. Absolutely everything is progress. My time and energy are very valuable...
How to create a Declaration of Clarity for your business or career — and the heartbeat of my own lil’ empire.
At our most recent #TeamDanielle retreat we got clear on our core values. I was a smidge resistant. I’m usually focused on what I wanna make-create-and-by what date…
CREATIVITY. CADENCE. CORE DESIRED FEELINGS. What it takes to make good stuff in the world. Notice when your dream has come true. If you’re addicted to accomplishing things, you might miss the fact that you’ve actually accomplished something pretty awesome.
You probably have notebooks of ideas. You may have ideas you haven’t told anyone about. There are ideas that the cosmos is waiting to tell YOU about it. Stop. Shhh. Did you hear that? It’s your next big idea. Stay still long enough and you’ll hear how to make it happen.
You are capable of holding two states of consciousness at once: presence and longing, gratitude and desire, contentment and hunger. This is what it means to become whole.
“Successful” Female is at the podium. She’s giving a talk on how to be “successful” as a woman in business.
I’ve been to a goodly amount of women’s conferences. So much life and power at those events — and sometimes, unfortunately, a big dose of density. It goes like this…
You can work out your family of origin issues, and neuroses, and past life traumas with your shrink or your shaman. You can talk talk talk it out all day long (I know, I’ve done it.) You can trace the cause of your wounds and why you’re so stuck. But at some point, eventually, who cares WHY you’re stuck…
We visualize to manifest. Vision boards, motivational quotes on your desk. Ideas on sticky notes to inspire. At the root of desire mapping is this notion: Knowing how you want to feel is the most powerful form of clarity you can have. And…being reminded of your core desired feelings is part of the practice. Like so…
Here’s an uber practical how-to and pep talk about generating your core desired feelings.
Say hello to a reality with more possibility. Limber up your intentions with this extreme visualization exercise. You can do this in 5 or 10 minutes.
In celebration of the release of The Fire Starter Sessions paperback edition, here are some multimedia motivationals.
What I’m campaigning for is that you embrace the potential genius of the last minute knowings (because they’re natural).
The one part of the plan that isn’t changing? The plan to always give your very best.
“You know gentlemen,” Miten said as he strummed his guitar, “I think this lyric speaks to the masculine, to the heart of our sexuality. It’s what we’re here to give the world, you know. So it’s a bit radical, but would all the men in the audience please stand up.” Silence. All the men in the concert hall rise. The women started looking around, behind our seats, next to us, taking it in, softly smiling, nodding to each other, like, “Well THIS should be interesting.” …
Usually, I try to avoid watching/listening to my own interviews or speaking gigs. But he talked me into watching this. We cover a lot of ground — ambition, systems design, cowboys, and of course… love. Tune in.
Hey hustlers! I’m a hustler, too. Hustling my ideas. I like connections. I like ink. I like open doors. Networking? Loathe it. And unless there’s a dance floor, I always leave the party early. Consider this permission (not that you need it) to not network. We’re going to replace the concept of networking with trust and resonance…
July Roundup: Cosmic guidance, brittle women & a million dollars. Notes on my writing process. Stop giving 100%.
July 2013 roundup: Desire, orgasm and shakti power. Random notes on my writing. Guidance from the cosmos, plus a million dollars ain’t a million dollars.
The concept of ‘ease’ confounds most of us. Why? Because of thoughts like these: Pay your dues. Put in your time. Prove yourself. Meet expectations. Soldier on. Nothing worthwhile comes easy.
