The life-changing magic of the Desire Map April 10 2016, 0 Comments
For those of you who know me or have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I'm a HUGE fan of the Desire Map. If you're new to the Desire Map you can read more about it here.
There is so much power in declaring your desires and setting soul-inspired intentions and goals. Something magical happens when we get crystal clear on what we want and then take action. Do you know what I'm talking about?
That feeling of flow when you're attracting opportunities, perhaps the perfect job or the romantic partner, the pay rise, the holiday? Those moments when you sense the Universe/God/Spirit must be looking out for you. The thing is we are all being looked after but it's our beliefs and thoughts that shape and create our reality. If you have loads of limiting beliefs and your day is filled with negative thoughts then I'm going to guess you're not 100% happy with your current life. When we tap into transforming our beliefs, thoughts and feelings magic really does start to happen! The Desire Map is the perfect ingredient to make this magic potion!
Since I've aligned to my CDFs of Ease, Spacious and Connection my life has felt easier, I feel like I have more pockets of space in my busy week and my tribe of gorgeous souls is growing and my connection to my self and spirit is expanding. Now I'm feeling less overwhelmed and on top of my procrastination I'm considering adding two new CDFs.
Just last week I had a gorgeous email from Lauren, a Desire Mapper from my last workshop. I wanted to share what she has attracted into her life since the workshop. This is the vision board that she created of her CDFs of Nourishment, Devotion and Tranquil on day two of the workshop.
"Seriously Simone vision boards are magic! Like literally pieces of magic!!!!! Since attending your workshop and completing my board I have been contacted by a yoga teacher training studio who offered me a hugely discounted spot in there teacher training!!!! I am their karma yoga student because a lady pulled out last minute so I will be assisting them with there training and taking photos and completing the course myself! So excited and honestly the opportunity just fell in my lap and on my board I have my yoga and health!! Hehe!!!
Honestly the Desire Map workshop was incredible and I am ever so grateful for the opportunity - thank you thank you thank you!"
If you're tired of feeling like there must be more to life, if you're sick of seeing others around you shine and transform their lives, keep reading below to find out how you can create all you desire with the life-changing magic of the Desire Map.
There is no need to think or believe the grass is always greener.
The grass is actually green, you're just looking at the grass from the wrong angle.
Get clear on how you truly want to feel
This is a key component in the Desire Mapping process. It is essential to consider how you do and don't want to feel. In 1:1 coaching and Desire Map workshops we narrow this down to between one and five Core Desired Feelings (known as CDFs). These become the road map for creating the life you desire. Everything can be measured against this. Is doing XYZ going to bring about your CDFs? If not, then reassess doing it. Is X goal going to lead you to feeling this way? If not, cross it off your list.
Get crystal clear on what you want
This requires knowing exactly what it is you want in your life. What you desire, what needs to change, what is blocking your happiness, what you want more or less of. It helps to be in tune with our intuition as our intuition is always guiding us. It whispers the way of our soul everyday. If you don't know what you want, try doing what brings you joy, find out what lights you up. Reflect on what brings you down as well to help you highlight what you desire.
Have an attitude of gratitude
Having an attitude of gratitude aligns you to what you want and how you want to feel. It raises our vibration. You can't gain more abundance and what you desire if you fail to appreciate what you already have. There is always something to be grateful for and as soon as you find it your life will improve. Acting as though you already have what you desire is an important part of creating a life you love. Everyday write down or say out loud at the dinner table what you are grateful for that already exists in your life and watch the magic unfold.
Declare it, visualise it, believe it
Once you know what you want and how you want to feel, declare it! That's right, tell people, create a vision board, plaster your CDFs around the house, on your screen saver, as love notes on the mirror. Close your eyes and regularly visualise how it will feel, smell, taste, sound when you achieve your goal. Picture yourself as if what you desire is already in your life. Affirm it to rewire your beliefs in the positive with "I am" and "I can" statements.
Clear any road blocks along the way
If you hit a bump in the road and you've done all of the above, it's likely you've dug up some self-limiting sub-conscious beliefs that are keeping you stuck. Really they all come back to fear but they may show up as procrastination, sabotage, distraction or shiny object syndrome, avoidance, overcommitting to other things, lack of commitment or consistency. You can read a technique to help that was touched on in 9 reasons you're not achieving your goals.
Take inspired action
The second thing you need to consider if your life isn't transforming is whether you are taking enough divinely guided, soul-inspired action. Creating your dream life takes work and while being in flow and seeing your goals achieved is magical, taking action and stepping outside of your comfort zone is frequently required. How would the soul grow otherwise? Ensure this action is intuitive and guided otherwise it can come across as desperate.
Celebrate your wins
Don't forget to pop the bubbly or a pot of chai tea to celebrate along the way. Keep practising gratitude and review your CDFs and your goals to ensure you are still aligned to them. If not, re-do the Desire Mapping process and repeat the steps above!
The Desire Map is a happiness and a manifesting maverick!
