Ep 15: Name It

Name It

The beginning of a new year often marks a time when many of us set goals and intentions. But in this week’s episode, I’m inviting you to dig deeper to find your innermost desires and longings, and then name them to kick-start 2019. These longings live in a place where joy, delight, wonder, and curiosity live, and they exist without conditions or expectations. Sound like fun? ...Or perhaps scary? Join me to make 2019 the year you “name it!”

Highlights for Name It

  • Why is naming what we want so very difficult? (4:00)

  • What would it be like to want something “just because”? (4:35)

  • What is the difference between setting a goal (or an intention) and getting specific about naming your desire? (5:35)

  • Attune to your inner source of joy, delight, wonder, and curiosity to ensure that your “It” comes from you (and not from someone else’s desires) (6:15)

  • What you crave doesn’t need to make sense to anyone else (9:00)

  • It almost doesn’t even matter if what you crave actually ever manifests. It is more about creating space to let these desires emerge from within you (11:10)
