Hey hey, #DesireMap loves.
By now, you probably know that we have been test driving The Desire Map workshop material in several cities before the global Licensing launch in Jan 2015.
And at the Seattle Beta workshop (facilitated by L’Erin Alta), we saw something that we wanted to share with you. Here it is:
Some of you might be feeling the urge to desire map again, or to spend a few hours reviewing your workbook and re-grounding yourself in the process that lead you to your core desired feelings.
As you’re moving those plans forward, give yourself lots (and lots) of SPACE.
Some people breeze through the Desire Map process in a flash. A small and tight container helps them squeeze through to clarity in a heartbeat.
But for a lot of us, we need SPACE.
Here’s how we saw this in Seattle:
It could have been because of L’Erin’s background as a healer, or maybe it’s just because of the alchemy of the particular group of women that came together that weekend, but this workshop went deep.
Every single attendee cried at least once. Jobs were quit. Businesses started. Spouses separated. Marriages on the brink were renewed. Big things happened.
Your Desire Map process (whether it’s your first time going all the way through the workbook, or your third) might carry you into a similar place. You’ll experience powerful emotions as you fess up to what’s not working and begin to liberate your vision for your life. This is BIG stuff.
And big transformation needs space to unfold in. Give yourself that space.
Tell your loved ones you need a Saturday afternoon “off.”
Plan your first ever solo vacation.
It could be as simple as putting your phone on silent and locking the bedroom door.
As a Desire Map workshop facilitator, L’Erin created this space for attendees. She tweaked the schedule several times throughout the workshop, because significant emotional moments required more attention and time. She cancelled some activities and extended others, because what the group most needed at each of those moments, was SPACE.
If you need to cry, make space for the tears.
If you need to rage, make space for the anger.
If you need to dance, just do it.
This is your process. Your life. Take up space.
