Come Sit By The Fire ~

Come, sit by the fire – Danielle LaPorte invites us in the introduction to her book The Firestarter Sessions. When being real is your priority, the various parts of your life start to groove. Being genuine is the foundation of integrity – often inconvenient and not always painless – but the only way to go if you’re here to really, truly. fully live.
I believe coincidences are subtle reminders from the Universe to pay attention to something. When I read this part of Danielle’s intro, it was the day after I gave a talk to a bunch of entrepreneurs. The title of the talk – If Your Life’s Not Working Your Business Won’t Either. The subjects of the talk – Tolerations, Integrity, and Authenticity. OK – I am listening….
When I say I am listening I don’t mean that only literally. When circumstances pop and and reinforce their ideals they don’t always chat with you face to face. Sometimes they are much more subtle (and other times they scream away). So I am paying attention to signs, symbols, people, conversations, opportunities, the whole shebang. When things like this happen, it tells me that I am supposed to pay attention.
Danielle also tells us that our Soul Fire is ancient and integral to each of us – inextinguishable, but susceptible to being dimmed to faintness. That Self-doubt is so insidious that it not only renders us stuck in our lives, but it also actually weakens our ability to dream about what living unleashed would look like.
Be strategic with your desires.
Leverage your contradictions.
Say no to resentment and yes to inspiration.
Make ease a metric of success.
These precepts are kindling for your soul fire, they are the pathways to what you truly want, and they are the reason this book exists.
So are your ready to take a look at your life and your dreams and see if they coincide? Or become aware that they have nothing whatsoever to do with each other? Are you living your life or the life someone else has told you that you should be living…. Are you ready to dig deep, self reflect, and own what is going on around you?
The soul fire way
Ablaze with passion.
Passion that can’t be faked.
Passion that the world cannot deny.
Your dreams are a refection of who you really are. If those dreams are hidden in the closet, well need I say more? Maybe it’s time for a closet cleaning… Sometimes it’s just that those dreams have gotten hidden behind that old coat you never wear. Sometimes we just think that those dreams won’t fit us anymore. And sometimes we think those dreams are out of date. Your dreams are never outdated. Your soul is always there waiting. It’s time to light the fire….
So my beloved Fire Starters, my freedom seekers and fear tamers, in the name of undiminished soul fire and good times, we are gathered her to get clear on what true success truly means to you.
