Redefining Self-Help with Danielle LaPorte’s White Hot Truth

Redefining Self-Help with Danielle LaPorte’s White Hot Truth

I recently was gifted with the experience of reading Danielle LaPorte‘s new book, White Hot Truth, before it’s release to the world and thought I am a bit biased about Danielle and her work, this book is a MUST READ for any Self-Help lovers. White Hot Truth is not only a charming memoir like expression of Danielle and what she has learned along her journey, it also offers some lessons about self-improvement and spirituality that we often do not recognize or forget to honor.

 

Redefining Self-Help with Danielle LaPorte's White Hot Truth

 

White Hot Truth: Clarity for Keeping It Real on Your Spiritual Path from One Seeker to Another is about devotion, honor, and the white hot truth of how messy our journey’s can be. “Has your self-help become self-criticism? A wise and often hilarious exploration of the conflicts between spiritual aspiration and the compulsion to improve, from Oprah Super Soul 100 member, Danielle LaPorte.

Like a wise girlfriend you can totally relate to, Danielle cheerleads you to own your wisdom and self-worth by having a good laugh (and maybe a good cry) at the ways you’ve been trying to improve on your self-improvement. Rooted in compassion, feminism, and spiritual activism White Hot Truth is an intimate and (hilariously) relatable account of self-help tales gone wrong, and very right.” Amazon.com writes.

There are 2 books right now that I would recommend for someone wanting to deepen their work, and learn how to honor the experience, White Hot Truth is one of those 2. This book has taught me so much about self-work and how to flow within that process. White Hot Truth teaches this and more along each beautiful page.

Danielle expresses the importance of honoring how messy self-improvement and the spiritual journey to enlightenment can be. She shares personal experiences of how she honored herself and her process in trusting her intuition, and clearing her house of all healing crystals and metaphysical tools she had, because she needed to purify and cleanse from some un-desirable energy. All along the way, Danielle shares hilariously personal stories and moments of personal heartbreak and turmoil in a stunningly open and wise way.

White Hot Truth is strung along with Danielle’s iconic Truth Bombs that carry you throughout the book like the breeze of a spring day. It’s refreshingly inspirational and empowering. Danielle writes about how openness, unconditional loving kindness, and boundaries go hand in hand. Personally, this was one of the biggest gems that I took from the book. The principle was something I was already aware of, but White Hot Truth and some personal experiences I went through after reading the book really engrained this lesson in my heart.

The truth of the matter is, we’re all on the same path to this space of betterment (and those of us working toward enlightenment). The only things that differ us are our experiences, but our pains and struggles along the way are all rooted in the same lessons. Danielle shares this in a beautifully personal way throughout White Hot Truth.

Danielle also teaches in this book that there are times to pull away from the self-work. We can get so wrapped up in bettering ourselves and our lives that we forget to see how much beauty and light is already present. There is a time and place to just be where we are, to have deep gratitude where we are. To honor ourselves and have pride in how far we’ve come. There is a time to take a break, inhale some gratitude, watch a sunset, and then maybe we can get back to work tomorrow. Or next week.

White Hot Truth has become a manifesto or mantra of sorts for me. What is the White Hot Truth of the situation? What is my White Hot Truth in how I am feeling toward _____? Am I coming from a place of White Hot Truth? All of these questions and more come up within my life all of the time now, and this intention has created such a beautiful energy around my life and how I am honoring and expressing myself. /i journal with the prompt of these questions to reconnect to and ground into my truths. It reminds me of the core of my work, my life, how I react and choose to be present, and what my intention is for the life I lead.

White Hot Truth has hands down redefined self-help for me, and I know it can for you too. If you are open to the lessons and stories you will find a new trust and truth in your journey and how divinely perfect and humanly messy it is and will be at times.

You can get Danielle LaPorte’s White Hot Truth here and here. Today (May 15th, 2017) is the last day to get the audio book for free, so if you want to dive into this book and the stunning audio from Danielle, you can find that here. Also, I highly highly recommend you join the White Hot Truth book club (you don’t even have to have the book!) here. You can also read more about how White Hot Truth changed my life here.

May your journey be yours.

White Hot Truth by Danielle LaPorte // Books That Changed My Life

White Hot Truth by Danielle LaPorte // Books That Changed My Life

As much as it is a little bittersweet to be ending the March theme of Books That Changed My Life, I am so f*cking excited to share this book with you. This beautiful work of magic and raw realness from Danielle LaPorte was not intended to be a part of this series, but I am incredibly happy + grateful the Universe aligned it.

White Hot Truth: Clarity for Keeping It Real on Your Spiritual Path from One Seeker to Another is an incredibly real and beautifully honest take on spirituality, life, and all things universally true. Amazon.com says, “Like a wise girlfriend you can totally relate to, Danielle cheerleads you to own your wisdom and self-worth by having a good laugh (and maybe a good cry) at the ways you’ve been trying to improve on your self-improvement. Rooted in compassion, feminism, and spiritual activism White Hot Truth is an intimate and (hilariously) relatable account of self-help tales gone wrong, and very right.”

Books That Changed My Life - White Hot Truth by Danielle Laporte from the Spirit & Soul blog

In my blog about The Desire Map, I raved about how much I ADORE Danielle and her presence and her work. My love for her only grew deeper and more true within every page of White Hot Truth. White Hot Truth is easily one of my favorite books of spiritual exploration, because of how honest and human Danielle shares her stories + experiences.

I think my biggest takeaway from WHT was that spirituality is equally as human as it is transcendent. It’s beautiful, soulful and enlightening and it is also messy and painful and chaotic sometimes. White Hot Truth is a really beautiful book about giving light and loving – but in a way that is not ‘more light, more love, output all of the goodness’, it’s also ‘bring light to the dark, love extra on the messes of life, if you’re going to love – love it all, if you’re going to feel and grow, feel it all’. Which is really profound and honest. It is soul wrenchingly needed for the ‘trend’ of spirituality today.

As many others in the White Hot Truth launch team have said, “This is a book that needs more than one read.” And while the book isn’t quite out yet, you can preorder it here and get the free audio download here. White Hot Truth has also become a manifesto of sorts for me, or even a mantra at times. I will ask myself, “What is the White Hot Truth?”, when I am experiencing something funky or energetically off.

Now that I have shared a few favorite lines before I tie off this blog, I want to extend my greatest gratitude to Danielle and Team D for being so incredible. I would like to offer my deepest love to all of the other girl’s in the launch team, as well as to anyone else diving into this book and shifting their practice + spiritual outlooks.
