For insane, terrifyingly amazing results, make your wishes and set powerful intentions in the hours following 3AM Eastern tomorrow March 1, 2014. Read why here.
Everybody has a calling. To figure out what it is, we have to ask ourselves what ignites the light within us. That’s how we can illuminate the world.
This simple life lesson changed my life. I had to rethink everything.

When you see 11:11, check your thoughts. What are you thinking at this moment? Our thoughts are always manifesting into form on some level. Are you pleased with the thoughts the universe has captured? Each time you see 11:11, choose to realign your thinking with that which you want: peace, joy, love, and abundance.
I had a lunch meeting next to a couple in their 50s yesterday. They seemed so in love. I kept looking over at them because I love seeing people in love, and this man & woman weren’t just teenagers in the throes of puppy love. They looked at one another like each was the most fascinating, charming person in the world. It made me smile.
We started a conversation when I offered to take a picture of them after watching many failed selfies. They told me they’ve been together for 10 years. They said they believe the universe brought them together. I believe that, too. Their love was so strong.
Then the man leaned over and casually told me that I am a messenger, I have a calm soul, and my aura is blue. I don’t know what a blue aura means, but I felt naked… my aura was showing!
No point to this story other than to say that love is everywhere all the time. All you have to do is look out your window or log on the interwebz, or turn to the couple seated next to you at lunch, and say, “Hello love.”

Whether you’re single or attached, we can all have fun on Valentine’s Day. If you’re in New York tomorrow night, come to the #hellolove2014 party. We can hug it out. http://hellolove.eventbrite.com
Raise your standards of the behavior you’re willing to accept in your relationships, and the universe will present you with people who clear the bar.
Love is like a fart: if you have to force it, it’s probably shit. Let go of the idea that for romance to happen in your life you need to struggle. The miracle is knowing that the right relationship is being held in trust for you by the universe. Your only job is to create space in your heart and in your life to receive it.
If you knew that you would meet the man of your dreams in two months time, what would you do? You might clean up your diet, let go of some outworn relationships, and work on the most important intimate relationship of all: the one you have with yourself.
In expecting and preparing for a miracle, you accelerate it’s arrival.
This is what I’ve learned from almost 2 years as Elsa’s uncle JoJo (her birthday is Valentine’s Day): kids don’t really give a shit what you’re saying, how smart you are, who you know, what you’re wearing, where you went last night, or who you voted for last election. Kids care about who you are. They care about the energy that you bring into the room. Kids can lock into your vibes & figure you out 1000x faster than a therapist or life coach. (Though I’m still taking clients!)
I spend time with Elsa almost every single day, and she has been a master teacher to me, guiding me to be less concerned with externalities and more concerned with how I’m bringing my energy to bear on any given situation.
In every moment, we have a choice: we can be a channel of love & blessing or we can be a channel of fear & anxiety. It’s our choice alone, and by the effects of our choice we will live. Thank you Elsa, my dumpling arisen from the mists of time. IMMA GET CHU!!!!!!
And thanks to Juno for this beautiful watercolor. It was awesome to wake up & see on Instagram.
We ask the universe to send us someone who will love us, and run like hell when he arrives. We do the craziest things to secure other people’s approval, and yet can never really receive praise fully when we get it. (Maybe because we think if the person saw us the way we see ourselves, they wouldn’t like us either.)
The problem isn’t that the world lacks miracles. The problem is that we’ve closed our hearts off from receiving them. This world we’ve made is built upon defending against love. The Sufi mystic and poet Rumi wrote that we don’t need to go out and try to find love, but rather “seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
What have you been doing that closes your heart? Maybe stop doing that. What could you do to open it? Maybe do that. Don’t worry about getting opportunities. That’s the universe’s job. Worry about keeping an open heart. That’s yours.
