I’ve been meaning to do a book review for The Desire Map for quite some time now. This is my kind of book review since it focuses on what I learned from the book. In my opinion, the best books have big life lessons. And this book delivers BIG lessons.
I read The Desire Map, a book written by Danielle LaPorte, in 2015 shortly after being laid-off. I found it (it found me), right around the same time that I was trying to find myself (again. Or was I trying to re-define myself?)
I don’t do new year’s resolutions. At all. It was liberating a couple years ago when I made that decision.
What do I do instead?
I prepare for the new year.
I start by closing the previous year (more on that here). Then I prepare for the new year by dreaming, planning and strategizing. My Core Desired Feelings (CDFs), a Word of the Year, and a Mantra of the Year are my tools.
In my previous post, I talked about how conducting Reiki self-treatment can help you at work. It can help you manage your stress level and become more self-aware which can help you stay at your peak. But Reiki self-treatments are just one element of learning and practicing Reiki.
Want to invest in your professional development? Consider Reiki.
So much has been written and said about Reiki as a healing tool (here’s an excellent introduction). But it can change your professional life as well. And I don’t just mean if you are a medical professional, like a nurse or first responder.
