In this beautiful conversation with Danielle LaPorte, we talk about how to tune into the intelligence of your heart so that you can live a more conscious, heart-centered, resilient, spiritual life led with presence and lovingkindness. We cover many of the tenets in her new book, How to Be Loving, which highlights the power of self-compassion so that we can do our shadow work, be open to higher guidance and ultimately see through a lens of love. Danielle shares her journey of being a seeker of Truth and the various routes she has taken to live within the truth of her life, especially when managing emotional pain, hardship, and curveballs. We talk about how to be intentional in what you digest – everything from social media, energy, other people and even music – because the subconscious self is not a mature self, and we need to be wise of what we receive and believe. Among many other beautiful tips and practices, Danielle shares how to lean into discomfort without the need to quickly dismiss it, but to rather allow yourself to be in the impermanence of the discomfort, and then focus in on a loving thought. If you are someone who wants to lean into more spirituality, love, presence and healing, then this episode is for you.
