Heyyyy. Freedom Fighters. Actually, I don’t love the term “Fighter”. Maybe “Crusaders” is better. Or “Lovers”. Let’s go With Freedom Lovers
Dear Freedom Lovers,
This week’s Free & Clear exercise could be a bit of a downer, especially on top of the news these days. But we need to see the muck we’re in so we can resolve to find a way out of it. Or through it.
WEEK 3: WANT TO CHANGE
You’re going to look at what you want to change in your life. That typically implies dissatisfaction. Sometimes, it’s been a long term, exhausting dissatisfaction. Serious fugh-ness. Or maybe it’s something that side-swept you and now you need to clean up the wreckage. Doing this kind of work is the difference between suffering and relief, mediocrity and real pleasure. Looking at this stuff directly is how you go from stuck and befughled (new word) to… Free & Clear.
There’s a layer of psychological refinement that we’re adding to this. You’re going to look at what needs to change WITHOUT laying a guilt trip on yourself (or anyone else). You’re observing, not criticizing. Criticism clouds your clarity, so resist that destructive impulse and simply name what you’d like to change. It’s incredibly empowering to come from that “observer” position.
One more layer to this: Don’t concern yourself with how you’re going to fix what’s bothering you. That kind of thinking can come later. FIRST: get clarity around what sucks and what you want to shift. Download your WANT TO CHANGE worksheet HERE.
Let’s jam on this together TOMORROW: Wednesday, October 24, on the @desiremap Instagram at 12pm PST | 3pm EST.

This innerwork could be how you go from stuck and suffering to… Free & Clear.
With this kind of gorgeous clarity, manifestation becomes a super-charged process. And you can really put your Soul into your goals.
Around the corner…
The theme for the next FREE & CLEAR exercise will be: STOP DOING. The STOP DOING LIST is one of my favourite things to do for myself every year. It’s a total rush. Prepare for liberation.
