Dear reader, “Ah-ha, that’s it!” I said to myself this morning, in the sleepy state of barely awake after my early-morning alarm. After struggling to figure out when in the day would work to visit my elder parents, I felt a surge of clarity and happiness. I have two deadlines to meet, a daughter on…
If you’re familiar with Willow in any way, shape or form—from attending a workshop, reading a blog, listening to a podcast or using one of our free tools—you likely understand what it means to do end-of-life planning from your heart.
But how do we keep returning to our heart center again and again? Well, our dear friend and business mentor, Danielle Laporte created The Desire Map to address this very need. The Desire Map is an approach that lets you choose how you want to feel in life and actually keep those feelings alive as you go. We love it as a tool for end-of-life planning.
Change your feelings and you could change everything.
What old world healers have known, science is now proving. Our emotions lead our biology—having a profound effect on our heart rhythms, brain chemistry, and the myriad of systems they control. Stress brings chaos in the heart, positivity brings calm and steadiness.
Choosing how you feel is the ultimate self-agency. Our feelings inform our thoughts and our thoughts inform our behaviour. You could lessen your suffering, even in slow-to-change, less-than-ideal circumstances. This is about feeling good, yes, but really it’s about using our heart-brain to nourish ourselves, each other, and the planet. That’s the essence of Desire Mapping.
Our core desired feelings keep fueling us.
We both completed earlier versions of The Desire Map course and it continues to fuel and guide us as we move through all realms of our lives and our personal end-of-life planning.
Reena’s core desired feelings are: dauntless, at home and in love. Michelle’s core desired feelings are: inspiration, freedom and delight.
Danielle is now offering a new and expanded version of the course for free and we’re excited to offer it to you.
This is the first time we’ve promoted anyone else’s work to you. We’re doing this because we fully believe in the power of The Desire Map. To be totally transparent, if you end up purchasing anything beyond the free material, we may earn a referral fee, but our main motivation is to be of service to you.
Registration is FREE now through May 29. Please, get in there. Early is better so you have the most time with the content. You’ll go deep with Danielle. Do your friends and family a favor too, and share this blog post with them.
With love and light,
Michelle + Reena
