Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

Love. Free. Inspiration. Connection. Strong.

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

By myself, at home and in life. I loved carrying the Desire Map with me- to bed, to the waiting room while my car was serviced, to pick up waiting, to cafes, in the car. I feel the timing and pace I worked through the Desire Map were exactly what were needed for each step. In 2014, I also led a Desire Map bookclub, bringing my back through the material and getting to guide others, which reinforced what I knew and honed my thoughts and feelings in a new time.

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

Just giving words to these core feelings that drive me has been enlightening, and each day I am present to them. I start my days with my Desire Map planner and write them. Some days I am just writing to do it and move forward with my day, but even when I'm not fully present, going through the process of declaring and writing my CDFs brings me back to ME. Does it seem like it will be a tough day ahead? Yes, some days. Can I still feel how I want to feel? YES. Maybe I am not feeling inspired by a situation, but can I find Inspiration? I can! Maybe I feel disconnected to Love, but will I be able to feel it? Absolutely.

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

Because everyone is special and deserves to have their soul expressed in life. Getting in touch with our core desired feelings, being present to them, and making choices from there is profound and aligned with all I know. I want others to experience the clarity and power that come from knowing and choosing what they are truly after for their life.

Unpacking the election and our desires: Free Desire Map Coaching

Led By: Stella Burchard
With the recent U.S. election and the outpouring of strong emotions, I am called to dig within myself, shine Light, and shine to others so they can best take care and move forward. I am diving back into the Desire Map, looking to connect with our deepest desires, and bring that forward in a time of divisiveness and uncertainty.

Coaching takes place in 30 minute phone call. We will center, unpack what you are feeling, and get in touch with how you want to feel. My intention is to listen to your true self and guide you to your desires as navigation.

Please email me with the following to arrange your call:

- Subject: Free Desire Map + election unpack

- If you have 1) worked through the Desire Map before, 2) are new to the Desire Map and have the book and/or workbook, 3) are new to the Desire Map and do not have the book and/or workbook.

- What concern, yearning, thought, desire you are bringing in signing up.

- If you prefer morning or afternoon call (all times are PST as I am conducting from Los Angeles).

- Anything else you want me to know.

Email stella@queenofbows.com with the above. I will respond to further arrange within 24 hours.

Call time slots are available Friday, November 11 through Friday, November 18 until capacity is reached. 

I look forward to meeting you. <3
