An Introduction to The Desire Map
by Radiant Rebecca
“Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerfully creative thing you can do with your life.” – Danielle LaPorte
To create the life you want, you’ve got to get in touch with how you want to feel in that beautiful life and learn how to generate those feelings within your belly. And once you do that, the Universe does the rest. It’s brilliant, easy and incredibly elegant. But you have to start from the place of the feeling.
When I first read The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte, I knew it was exactly the message I had been trying to share with people for years.
Abraham-Hicks gives one of my favorite powerful explanations of this here in this video (and props to Gisele Fredrich who has put together so many of my favorite Abe video compilations!)
When I was totally reinventing myself a few years ago (an amicable divorce left me in the state of “Ok, well… NOW what do I want to do?”), I started playing with something called “Grids”.
It’s a tool that Abraham-Hicks talks about, and it’s all based on “How do you want to feel?”
I built a grid for how I wanted to feel in my life… it had 15-20 feeling words on it, and they all juiced me up! I’d sit in my bed at night before going to sleep and look at my grid and let my imagination run wild.
I had feelings on my grid such as “thrive” and “abundant” and “simple”, so I’d ask myself, “What does abundance in my romantic life look like? What does abundance look like in my wallet? My bank account? What does thriving look like in my career? What does thriving look like in my home life?”
And because the questions were so positively stated AND open-ended, my mind started to open to new ways that I could experience those emotions and to enhance and build on that vibration.
It was easy, it was fun and it was POWERFUL!
I went through a massive transformation from caterpillar to abundant butterfly in just a few months, and that grid, the very early version of my Core Desired Feelings, seemed to be the major catalyst for the big changes.
I loved the way Danielle combined all of the principals I’ve learned from Abraham-Hicks over the years with her own stories, wisdom and a layer of poetry, beauty and joyous success.
Danielle took that book and turned it into workshop, retreat, and coaching curriculum for teachers of all kinds.
I’m passionate about sharing this work because I worked too hard for too long – and now I can look back and see how unnecessary it was.
There is an easy way, and the easy way is to tap into the energy of the life you want to live and let IT come you.
I believe that we are all eminently worthy of everything we desire.
Life SHOULD be fun and full of joy and interesting and engaging and a grand adventure!
And I love to remind us all of that. This work is changing people’s lives, and I am so proud to be part of this revolution of the heart.
I love to teach this. If you are interested in taking a course with me, either in person or virtually, see below for scheduled classes.
Lots of love,
