Ever felt lack of clarity, or had difficulty making decisions? Ever tend to second-guess yourself? Yeah, join the club (me too). Then awhile ago I discovered a solid tool that really helped! A little book called The Desire Map.
The Desire Map guides you through a process of deep soul inquiry into 5 major areas of your life, and then helps you tease out 5 deeply meaningful words (or phrases)…your Core Desired Feelings (CDFs). These are words that describe how you really want to feel…. in every situation.
So how does the Desire Map help with all that indecision, fear, and lack of clarity?
Once you’ve figured how you actually want to FEEL in your work, your relationships, etc., then you can use those feelings as a trustworthy inner compass to guide you. Your CDFs can act as a filter through which you can run every potential decision, goal, and action step (large or small).
Even if we don’t know exactly what we want or how to get there, we CAN be clear on exactly how we want to FEEL. And from there, we can determine if what we think we want will in fact, actually will make us feel the way we want to.
When I committed to using this simple formula in my life, it really liberated me. It helped me to start saying “no” to anything that doesn’t light me up, and helped me say “yes” to things that feel connected to my best and most authentic self.
Here are my Core Desired Feelings that I use to filter every important decision:
If at every juncture, I just keep coming back to the simple question, “how do I want to FEEL” (in this situation), the answer is always surprisingly easy. My CDFs are perfect partners with my intuition, plus my most important values. And that’s a powerful combo!
Your Core Desired Feelings are a GPS for your soul.
When you intentionally design your life based on how you really want to feel, then you automatically gain more confidence, ease, freedom, clarity…and you feel GOOD.
And when we feel good, it’s not just about us. It affects everyone and everything around us too.
So of course, when the opportunity to become a Desire Map workshop facilitator came around, I got an intuitive “hit” that said YES! Several cherished friends came together to help creatively and intuitively design the event together. This felt so completely like the RIGHT kind of work; vibrantly inspired, fun, and sacred.
We had our very first workshop on April 25th in a beautiful tropical home in San Diego, and it was everything we imagined it could be; magical, soulful, connected, and completely heartfelt. We infused the day with a tea meditation, chakra sound healing, guided visualizations, sacred inner inquiry, nurturing sisterhood, and nourishing yummy food. Each and every person who showed up was inspiring and beautiful…inside and out.
Take a peek at this video to see what I mean:
I have a deep desire to help you live a fully expressed life, whatever that means for you. I envision a world where each and every one of us is truly living our potential, feeling alive and vibrant, and contributing our own gifts to the world. Can you imagine?
Since I know from personal experience that the Desire Map process can help with this, I’m inspired to share it with you! Offering this workshop is just one of the ways that I’m living my CDFs.
In September 2015 we’ll be gathering again for another Soul Alchemy Desire Map workshop. The day is designed to be a treat and a retreat, a rare opportunity to spend the whole day really diving in and connecting with your most important dreams and desires.
We want to help you create your own recipe for transformation in a way that is soulful, loving, EASIER, and more fun, so that you can create a life you love!
