Let’s dive in.
I have something I want to talk to you about. Something I am passionate about, and fierce for.
I want to talk about your magic. Your creativity. Your mark. Your way.
About how to take a dream and set it on its feet.
About how sensual magic works.
Magic that every woman has.
Every person has it, actually.
Living magic. The magic of living your life as if you were a continually creating – and recreating – work of art. The magic of taking a stand to live your dreams and desires, on this earth, in your lifetime.
Which is not an easy row to hoe.
Because what is a desire, anyway?
Certainly, it is not something you crank up, willfully, out of your imagination.
The word Desire comes from the Latin word desiderare, to “long for, wish for,” and perhaps “await what the stars will bring,” from the phrase de sidere “from the stars”.
Desire is the interface between you, and that which is greater than you.
It’s the star that reached for you at the precise moment you looked up and noticed it.
Desire contains tension, hope, expectation, action.
Desire is a divine seed planted inside you, that you, only you, can create the growing conditions for.
You can kill a desire.
So many women, right now, run from their desires. Shy away from their desires. Bury them alive.
Buried magic is dangerous.
Without warm, human love and listening, without delicious welcome and careful attention, a desire will dim down, turn on you and extract its price.
It will eat away at your heart, body, mind, and soul. It will take away your life force. It will kill your enthusiasm. Zap your health. Dull your senses. Crucify your courage. Replace itself with anger, seething under the surface, evaporating your joy.
You see this every day. You walk down the street and see people who are alive but not living. Depression. Resignation. Substance abuse. Illness. Addictive behavior. Eating disorders.
And then, the opposite is true.
You can allow your desire to flourish within you, which will cause an extraordinary chemical chain of events, within and without you.
Living your desire is an adventure like no other.
Every day is a hairpin turn. A huge effort that leaves you winded and proud. Filled with chills and thrills at the mark you have made on the planet and its inhabitants. This world is forever changed because of your presence.
You stretch out in your bed at night, knowing you have given your all, played your hand; you have shown the f*ck up.
This world wants to be changed by you. By your desires. Your voice. Your impact. Your legend. And your current suffering can be traded in, any time, for a life of living your dreams and desires.
This is not easy.
It is a bitch, actually.
It requires courage beyond courage. It will press you and change you and force you to become your destiny. Which is never aligned with what you imagine your life will look like. It is always way better. But it might feel like shit. Yet, it is yours.
I want you to taste your destiny.
I want you to live your dreams.
I want the earth to feel the impact of you, the way your foot presses itself beautifully and perfectly into the sand, forcing the sand away, making room for the imprint of you.
Think of a desire you have. Could seem frivolous. Could seem deep.
For example, I know one desire making its way throughout this community these days, is to join me in Miami this November. (Haven’t received an invitation yet? If you desire to join us, click here and we’ll try to find you a seat.)
Hmmm. A weekend with me, and hundreds of Sister Goddesses, in Miami.
Could seem frivolous, could seem deep. It is all that and more.
For some of you, living this desire is as easy as pulling out your credit card and booking flights and hotels.
For some of you, it is tremendously more than that.
For some of you, living this desire seems impossible. It’s negotiating time off work, organizing childcare, taking the painful and essential step of asking for support. Finding a way to patch together the funds for the flight. Organizing hotel rooms to share. Trying something new. Pushing past your comfort zone.
Every woman must find her own way to say yes, when her stars light her pathway and beckon her forward into an adventure that incessantly whispers her name.
And the precise measure of the resistance is the precise measure of the gain. When we resist our desires, it’s a clear indication of the miraculous magic that awaits you on the other side of your ‘yes’.
Today, I want to invite you, implore you, and inspire you to live your desires in a very brave way. Push your edge, no matter what your desire is, to explore the many ways to say yes to something that seems impossible.
Let’s practice this in the comments below – here’s what I want you to do now:
- First, list at least 2 or 3 desires you have.
- Then – tell me all the reasons why they can’t happen.
- And then, as if you were made of magic (which you are), give me one step that you are going to take, today, to leave your mark on the world and set your dream on its feet.
p.s. If one of those desires of yours is to come join me in Miami this November, and you do not yet have an invitation to join us, your one next step is easy: Click here to let us know, and we’ll see if we can find you a seat.
