Ahhh, Danielle LaPorte...she's been a biggie my inspiration department since 2008. The first year of Snicks I had the privilege of working with her in Vancouver and have followed her work since. Style Statement, Firestarter, Spark, White Hot Truth, I am passionate about it all. In 2009 I hosted a Firestarter Session at my place even in Whistler. She has a beautiful power about her and speaks my language...her words resonate deeply within me.
Naming my Core Desire Feelings is what I want and need right now. Inside I know how they feel, I have felt them, they have moved me, but naming them is what I need to help manifest them. I am not able to do that alone, I have tried and tried. Goals, hopes and dreams float around and will pass you by unless you do the work.
Today I am so proud to introduce you to a writer and friend Alana, who finally took the leap and started her blog called My Lucid Life. For years we have talked about it and she expressed an interest and I saw a little spark every time. Over coffee a couple of weeks ago she made a commitment and I could feel her creative energy and excitement as we sat there and had the most amazing conversation.
Well the time was finally right and she has launched and lucky for me she agreed to work with Jodi Scott and write about one of my most beloved mentors. No one I have sent to Jodi has ever been disappointed and I was thrilled for Alana to have that gift. Sharing words from Alana and then Jodi now and I hope to see some of your shining faces at one of Jodi's upcoming Desire Map workshops.
LIFE COACH OR LIFE SAVER?
Like a good little yogi, I’ve worked hard to clean the cobwebs out of my psyche, to express the best possible version of myself, to be happy. Yet cobwebs remain in those hard-to-reach places—self-doubt, people-pleasing and a little bit of free-floating worry thrown in for good measure. I read my Pema Chodron, meditate, burn incense like it’s going out of style, and practise yoga every day, but few experiences have knocked me off my feet as swiftly and as profoundly as my recent coaching call with life coach extraordinaire, Jodi Scott.
