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.

All Love,

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.

Before you go…
Spotify Playlist: RIVERS TO REVOLUTIONS

Tunes: Some music for your contemplations…
Ship to Wreck, Florence & the Machine
Iron Sky, Paolo Nutini
Speak Out, Marle Thomson (Live Acoustic)
Time After Time, Cyndi Lauper
Traces of You, Anoushka Shankar

Even more: In case you’re slipping into self-judgment, I hope this helps:
Make changes without criticizing the past—your future will thank you for it.

The Principles of Active Waiting vs. feeling-like-a-loser, losing-your-mind kind of waiting…

I was at a friend’s cluttered apartment and he was saying how much he wanted to have a live-in girlfriend. And I was like, “Dude, where would she put her stuff?” He got his tidy on to make space for the live-in love he was waiting to find. That’s active waiting — happily preparing for what you trust is on its way to you.

this video has been getting a LOT of attention

What are you willing to do for your creative dream? Are you willing to transform? To give it up; be the fool; re-write your story; not recognize yourself; believe differently; be something, someone, you have not yet known? It does take a “miracle mindset”. And…

Some marketing know-how. Cosmic meets pragmatism.

You were born for this. See what I mean…

We believe in something bigger than ourselves. We understand that the cultural obsession with productivity is killing our joy & harming the planet. We KNOW the world needs leaders who uphold a triple bottom line—economic, social, environmental. So. This message is for you. (Especially if you’re a Creative, a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur—or want to be.)

How to be wildly successful

How to be wildly successful—on your terms

If you’ve been trying to turn your business or art into a profitable vehicle that makes a difference in the world, I’m all in to help make that happen. There is Soul work involved. There are no shortcuts. But, I’ve got some stories and ideas that could help with learning curves and obstacles…

Naked Prayer

Naked prayer.

I’ve always prayed. To heal. To have. I pray for people I love and people I have a hard time liking. I’ve sat in prayer circles petitioning rain and for someone’s cancer to dissolve. I know dozens of prayers from various faiths. I’ve published prayers. Danced them. Sang them. Sweat them. In reverence, in shock, in exquisite thanks.

I pray differently now.
