RETROSPECTION: Clear space so you can move forward.

Danielle LaPorte Free and Clear 2018

Dear Seeker… of freedom and clarity.

Helloooo! It’s Danielle. I want to say straight up, guiding you through this process is one of my favourite events of the year. Anything about clarity… anything that I can get out online in a “lite” way… I just love this kind of making and relating.

Now let’s just jump in…

WEEK 1: RETROSPECTION

It’s amazing how easy it is to relinquish control of how we manage our time. It’s a deep issue. We’re going to start with looking back at the last few months or year of your life. Retrospection, so we can clear space to move forward. Okay…

My sweet and always-determined friend Steph Corker laid this methodology on me when I needed to make a big pivot in my career. I had to make a decision that was going to affect the next few years of my creative focus. It was early Fall in the Western hemisphere. We were in a pub in Southern California after a business meeting had gone south. I was slightly confused but brimming with ideas. There was nowhere to go except toward clarity. But first… we had to rewind. 

So it’s… deep-dive, rapid-fire retrospective time for you. It’s really easy, because this is quick (but you can make it longer if you want to.)

Retrospect. The idea here is to see what lights you up, so that you can plan to feel-have-do and experience more of that in your life. My main piece of guidance for this RETROSPECTIVE EXERCISE is don’t overthink it. Do it quickly for the first round (I suggest a time limit in the exercise). Write down whatever comes to mind, unimpeded, bam-bam-bam—you can always go back and refine your reflections if you want.

The truth surfaces faster without a filter.

We’re going to jam on this together TOMORROW: Wednesday, October 10, on the @desiremap Instagram at 12pm PST / 3pm EST.

I’ll tell you more about how I ended up in a pub confused but excited and how you, too, can go from “WTF?!” to “Ohhhh, I know what I should do…”

All Love,

Around the corner…
The theme for the next week’s FREE & CLEAR will be: Expectations & Letting Go. Whether you need to perform major surgery on your commitments, or you need to just blow some shit up and walk away, healthy letting go requires mindfulness. (We’ll get you there.)

Before you go…
Ommm: If you want to get in a more contemplative headspace for this, here’s a lovely little audio called “Light Scanning”. It’s me guiding you to bring more light into your consciousness. You can play the contemplation FROM HERE.

Tunes: If you just want to groove while you do this retrospective, may I suggest Marvin Gaye’s Deluxe Edition of What’s Going On?

Even more: If you want to go deeper after you do this worksheet, there’s this extended perspective, aptly called: Your Deeper Year-In-Review.


 

PS. Clarity is a gift. Send this to a friend who could use some.

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Goddess of Grief Danielle LaPorte

the goddess of grief: getting to the other side. (and there is always another side.)

Grief is one of the most powerful Goddesses. She swallows your agony and lets it tear her apart. Beautiful birds fly from her belly – each one an insight into life and your power. Grief brings the whole flock to your window and she waits and waits to reveal universal truths to you. She goes to the depths with you. She rises with you…

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.)
