There are times to go to the mat for what you believe in. In my experience, MOST of the time, disengaging from duking it out is a very very good idea. I invite you to consider not taking the bait to fight. This is episode #45 of WITH LOVE, DANIELLE and I’m seriously rooting for your peace of mind.
There’s so much that we want good n’ GONE. But here’s the thing: nothing is leaving your life or your thought patterns until you give it the light of your consciousness—your love.
Why do we do meditations on the Full Moon? What’s the “dark of the moon?” Does… it have anything to do with Pink Floyd? Is the moon “feminine” energy and the sun “masculine” energy? And why should we pay attention to this at all?
In the personal development realm, discussion around Forgiveness tends to focus on us Forgiving the other person for what they apparently did.
But what about asking for Forgiveness? And, if I may, I want to take that a step further and talk about asking for Forgiveness from the person you think owes YOU an apology.
There are times in our lives when we bust out of habits and we do something new. Sometimes it’s the ego pushing us to prove ourselves. And sometimes, it’s our Soul moving us toward real expansion.
In this episode, I’m talking about aversions + desire (they are mates.) And the drive to be a more conscious person by doing new things, versus, the ego’s compulsion to check off impressive sh*t on a bucket list.
It’s fairly easy to conceive of a collective consciousness that is loving. Essentially, people who are compassionate, kind, uplifting to the world. They’re everywhere. When we think of this light, we tend to see it as a collective phenomenon.
Let’s take a break from shadow work and relationship healing to tawk about tawkin’––in public…
Harmlessness as a virtue––as an embodied energy, may be one of our most demanding calls as a species. It’s a commitment to the Universal Truth that can be hard to uphold. Higher Love is a tall order in these days of division. Here’s a short podcast on why the high road is actually highly efficient––and makes miracles happen.
When we pray for the strength to protect others, I believe that we magnetize more Light into our lives. Because it’s universal law–to give is to receive. A very powerful prayer for these times is the Shantideva Prayer. It helps impress on our psyches that WE ARE TOGETHER in everything, in all life’s experiences.
What if we didn’t expend so much energy being in “protection mode”? What would that free up? Protection is often necessary. But there’s another posture that can be more energizing. What if we held the belief that love is our greatest protection?
Tell me everything. How’s your heart? What can I do to help? What’s good for us? These 4 VERY SIMPLE, VERY DIRECT QUESTIONS will nourish every kind of relationship. In the podcast I go deeper into the intention and gifts of each statement. Please listen in… to your hearts.
The practice of simplifying has consumed me in the best way possible. I’ve simplified every area of my life. It’s become a magnetic pull in my cells. The only other times I felt such a strong yearning were when I felt it was time to make a baby (let’s go!). And when I knew I wanted to commit to my current partner (all in, my Love!). Very. Deep. Callings. Biggest learning? Like birth and being in love…
Simplifying is the rapture that comes after the complexity you wish you’d avoided.
Keeping it “positive” does not preclude having strong opinions… Opinions used for uplifting humanity are sacred.
Real growth comes from internal inspiration, not external motivation.
I want to go deep into this conversation about creating Fulfilling Friendships. I’ve got lots to say about engaged listening, self respect, breaking up (when necessary), and celebrating our friend-loves. I’ve also got plenty of opinions and practices for self-compassion, deep spiritual devotion, healthier relationships with our damn phones, and better quality sleep.
Shadow work, Faith, rebirth, and shedding—#GraceforImpact is a plea to make 2020 change us for the better.
Why do some of us change as a result of suffering and some of us don’t? What creates revolutions?
Faith is believing that the Light exists, even when it’s dark.
Binding identities, grievances, expired dreams, regrets, possessions. Can you feel the pressure to let go?
60+ things to do when we’re in pain. Wise, devotional tools and practices I use to heal.
Our deepest pain is the entry point to our authentic power. That’s why we do shadow work.
If the majority of the world slowed down because of one unifying singular crisis event… would THAT be enough for you to give yourself a break?
Grace holds tension. Between joy and sorrow; sanity and falling apart; the past you’ve outgrown and your radiant future. Grace balances “bothness.” She is spiritually mature. She turns pain into power.
Grace for Impact is the best of my love, my training in scenario planning and future studies, and my Faith. I was intending to write a book next year called, Things I Do When I’m In Pain. Here it is. This poured out of me in a week. It’s not perfect, but it’s on time.
I’m back in podcast mode—and I brought a friend! Marie Forleo. Forleo and I have huddled many a time about creative conundrums and opportunities. I trust her smarts. Her book, Everything is Figureoutable, entered the NYT bestseller list at #1. Because that’s how Forleo does things—impeccably. And her yearly marketing and business development program, B-School is about to roll out.
Divorce? Balance and striving? Longing to help? Your questions are multi-layered and beautifully articulated.
I receive so many substantive, well-written, messy, articulate, deep, precise questions. Gives me hope in humanity, actually. In this eps: grief, enlightenment, whether or not we should indoctrinate our children, the meaning of life… you know. Regular stuff.
“I’ve gone through my entire life holding everyone at a safe distance… how do I make friends now?” Our fear of judgment prevents us from getting the love that we’re longing for. Twisted, no? But being a stranger to someone doesn’t have to be an impediment to intimacy. This is where courage comes in.
I think external psychic input can be extremely valuable for navigating. I’ve had seers on my payroll. And… We can often sense what’s coming ourselves—we just don’t recognize our own power. Free will, free will, free will. And PS: free will.
My fellow grown up, let’s get you centered in your truth and prepped for family gatherings… so you don’t end up in the bathroom drunk-dialing your therapist. I have some ideas for staying sane (and ideally: being your most loving self), even if you want to get the hell out of there.
