What needs to change? Look at what sucks without criticizing yourself.

Free and Clear Week 3 Danielle LaPorte

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

Free and Clear 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.

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.

Pleasure-is-power

Your pleasure is your power… here’s how to get there, a few hours at a time.

When you’re in your pleasure you think more clearly, you’re more efficient, you’re most certainly more creative, and you’re more loving. Your pleasure states are good for your immune system. Mmmhmm.

Wishes for our American friends

As our American friends head to the polls today, I wanted to offer this to all of us: Look for Light with more intensity than ever… and vote for it.

Transformational Speaking

Want to be a powerful speaker? Meet the master…

Maybe you’re an introvert with a message. You’ve heard the call to speak, but playing the “extrovert” feels inauthentic. You may already be an active speaker, but your last few gigs or presentations could have used some oomph, that (sometimes) elusive fire.

CONSCIOUS gratitude is SMART gratitude—know exactly what you’re grateful for & why.

Conscious gratitude has been one of the most healing and creative practices in my life. It gets me out of my funk EVERY TIME. And it’s the source of a lot of my productivity. Conscious gratitude heals you, it’s generative, and it’s incredibly empowering.

The beautiful terror of going slowly

The beautiful terror of going slower. (I highly recommend it.)

It will not break your spirit, it will break down your addictions. Slower is not robbing you of having your deep desires being fulfilled, it’s helping you to be there—really be there—so you can see them right in front of you.

Seekers + Conscious Creatives, make this your mantra

We want you to have this November Desire Map Planner. Planning from a heart place can help you choose freedom now + whenever you can, instead of waiting n’ hoping that you’ll feel free “when you get there.”

Stop Doing. (AKA detangling, liberating, and facing some gnarly terror.)

In terms of being successful (meaning YOUR definition of personal success), what you stop doing is just as important as what you start doing. Full stop. I know this to be true in my own life, over and over again.

Danielle LaPorte Near Blinding Radiance

When you get through the big pain, this is what happens: Near-blinding radiance.

You will have more to give—and you will LOVE giving it. You will seek to give. It will be the most incredible feeling. Someone is going to come to you with a broken wing, or low on reserves and you are going to have so much love and insight to offer them.

Hey Fire Starter People

Hey, Fire Starter! Is your time management system starving your Soul?

When you’re clear on what activates the joy within you, time management becomes a means to self-expression, not self-policing. And “making time” becomes an act of service so that you can be your best for those around you.

Free and Clear Letting Go

Examine your expectations + what it means to deeply let go…

Sometimes the letting-go process feels really sexy and empowering. Burn it! Nix it! Bye! And sometimes, we want to hold on (grip, cuddle, cling) to things. What if I need it? If I polish it up, then can I keep it? But I worked so hard on this…
