We all want to know our true power, to make clear decisions. You can’t over-think your way out of confusion and into clarity (that’s called spinning your wheels). You have to feel your way into it. Your intelligence is in your heart center.
What to do after you have a breakthrough. (You’re going to shrink after you expand, so, listen closely.)
Threshold, crossed. You got there. After the grinding, the repetitive strain, the cord-cutting, the release, the bliss of relief—the training paid off. Muscle burn got you across the finish line. Soul fire resurrected you. BREAKTHROUGH.
What “shadow work” really is. (Calling all wounded warriors.)
Your shadow is where your wounds hide, waiting for the light of your attention. It’s the stuff beneath the distractions of workaholism and comparison and bravado.
The problem with manifestation techniques and what that psychic told you. (Plus 9 principles for predicting and manifesting.)
The problem with a lot of prediction + manifestation techniques is that we tend to forget that other humans are involved in our manifesting. And we can’t control other humans — as much as we’d LOVVVE to.
To trust in your goodness is the ultimate success.
At the end of an interview, it’s common to be asked the big finale question: “Tell our listeners how to get unstuck. Give us three secrets to happiness. What’s THE most useful thing you’ve learned?” No pressure.
Build strength through: reflection.
Build strength through: joy.
Build strength through: stillness.
Build strength through: action.
I’ve always prayed. To heal. To have. I pray for people I love and people I have a hard time liking. I’ve sat in prayer circles petitioning rain and for someone’s cancer to dissolve. I know dozens of prayers from various faiths. I’ve published prayers. Danced them. Sang them. Sweat them. In reverence, in shock, in exquisite thanks.
I pray differently now.
Comparison. Resiliency. True Love.
Comparison. Resiliency. True Love. If you’re in WTF Bootcamp right now—you will get through it. You’re in it because your Soul is up for it.
Are you at peace with it?
A choice you make that came with some struggle. To let go. To jump in. To shift your perspective. You did it. You made the call.
How do you know if you’re at peace with it?
Thank you for your exquisite suffering (How to show gratitude for being saved by someone.)
How can you thank another human for that Holy showing?
Your life is beyond words.
But now that you are stronger, reach deep into the natural order of things
and with your hewn respect
thank them for their own exquisite suffering.
Show Me How to Love Myself—a Devotion
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.
The beautiful terror of going slower. (I highly recommend it.)
My nervous system has been jacked for years, so less than “go-more-now-now” has been slightly confusing to my system. And actual stillness… well that’s been just… disorienting.
Holding out. The most underrated spiritual act there is.
New and different are not the same as resonant and deeper. You have to hold out for that kind of realness.
Are you hanging by a thread?
It’s going to be okay. More than okay.
When you’re done fighting for it. The upside of finally giving up.
Do you know the story of the man who was hitting himself over the head with a hammer? “Why do you keep hitting yourself with that hammer?” a shocked passerby asked him. “Because,” the man replied, “it’s going to feel so good when I stop.”
How to Let Go of A Dream (and why I’m not starting a magazine)
What I’m campaigning for is that you embrace the potential genius of the last minute knowings (because they’re natural).
Consider that your last minute revelation of how it could be better might be higher guidance, and do what it takes to make it so.
The one part of the plan that isn’t changing? The plan to always give your very best.
