Journey to a Desire

The journey to a desire can be more enjoyable than the manifestation of it.

Excerpt from “Falling in Love with your True Self”

“This is hard for many people to grasp.  The idea that you can feel happiness before you obtain the thing you feel brings you happiness.  This is where examining the journey to manifestation comes into play.  Just as you have a journey on a road trip the journey to your manifestations and the creation of the idea are just as important.”

Where am I to Where I want to be Exercise

Where am I to Where I want to be Exercise

This exercise is from my upcoming book “Falling in Love with Your True Self – Using self love to have healthier relationships, attract more abundance and finding your divine purpose”.  This exercise can be used when you have set a goal but are unsure where you stand in relation to that goal.  This gives you a starting or continuing point to achieve your desire.

Where am I to Where I want to be Exercise

On a blank sheet of paper make two columns.  The first one will be what you do want and the second column will be why this step is necessary for your goals completion.  This is sort of a pro and cons look at a thought to deconstruct it’s purpose.  Lets make this desire/thought something smaller so that you can see a solution without too much effort.

As an example I will use the desire of wanting to be able to cook a soufflé perfectly.  A soufflé is a good example as it is possible by anybody, it’s something that I think most people like to eat and its a nice accomplishment when done properly.  I say perfectly because if any of you have attempted a soufflé you know its either done perfectly or it is not enjoyable.

To start make side by side columns the first being your desire and the second being what feeling that desire brings you.

I want to cook a soufflé perfectly Cooking a soufflé brings me happiness

Next under your desire column let’s list some thoughts of how you think you would achieve this desire.

I need to get a cookbook on making soufflés 
I need to get ingredients to make a soufflé 
I need to practice making a soufflé 
If my soufflé didn’t work out try a different receipe
Keep making soufflés till they are perfect

After that let’s add some thoughts next to each to map out a plan of why you need to do any of those things.

I want to cook a soufflé perfectly  Cooking a soufflé brings me happiness
I need to get a cookbook on making soufflés  The cookbook will show me a step by step seeing I have never made a soufflé 
I need to get ingredients to make a soufflé  Without the ingredients I would not have anything to make the soufflé 
I need to practice making a soufflé  Practicing making them will help me get better at perfecting them
If my soufflé didn’t work out try a different receipe A different approach might be easier for me
Keep making soufflés till they are perfect If I keep making them eventually I will perfect them

Keep this chart and if you have achieved any of these things you can cross them out.  You can use this exercise as a vision board for a specific desire.  The point of the exercise is to show you a plan of how to achieve a desire.  If you waited all day for the soufflé to be done but didn’t even look up the recipe how could you be depressed you can’t make a perfect soufflé?  Listing out why you need to do each of the steps allows you to see a clearer path for how you will get to your goal.  You can use this exercise with anything in your life be it love, career or money.

If you cross out things you have done to get there or even just writing it all out will show you where you are to where you want to be in your life.  Knowing where you stand allows you the ability to gain momentum towards a desired outcome.  Once you have the feelings behind a desire written down you can more easily experience the feeling of that desire to complete its manifestation.  Feeling how it is to experience a desire is a much stronger feeling than feeling you don’t have that desire or can’t achieve it.

Try this exercise with a few of the things in your life you feel you don’t have and see how you feel if you hold the idea of it happening vs the idea of it not being possible.
