How do you want it all to feel?

by Starla J. King on February 6, 2012

[this post inspired by @DanielleLaPorte ‘s Burning Question.  Also, treat your heart to @AngelNSullivan’s post here.]

Clarity of Want + Depth of Feeling = Magic

Getting clear about what we want is powerful.

And really feeling what we want is also powerful.

But getting clear about how what we want feels? MAGIC. Creation. Manifestation. Make It So.

So, let’s play with this, this “feeling the wanting” idea.  I’ll go first… then you.


I want my workdays to feel like Christmas morning.

I want making a To Do list to feel like writing the lines of a mystical poem.

I want friendship to feel like eating a pomegranate on the beach at sunset.

I want conversations to feel like the flow of fountain pen ink on silken bright white paper.

I want tomorrow to feel like a candy store with chocolate-covered gummy bears, today like a pile of playful puppies, and yesterday like a 24-hour hug.

I want passion to feel like Niagra Falls after a trip to an art museum.

I want writing to feel like sunlight streaming through my veins.

I want my body to feel like 8-part harmony streaming down the nave of a soul-stunning Cathedral

I want making money to feel like worship and laughing so hard my rib meats ache and riding bike through the French countryside with my wife.

I want paying bills to feel like writing thank you notes.

I want my heart to feel like a peeling River Birch tree at the peak of spring.

I want my nervous system to feel like a kitten kneading a sheepskin.

I want projects to feel like preparing an exquisite meal for my closest friends.

I want crying to feel like alchemy and laughter like molten gold.

I want my home to feel like love and my love to feel like home.

And I want my life to feel like all of that.  ALL of that.


Ok, your turn… Feel…and write. [in a comment here is a great place to start…]

Ohhhh, my mouth was watering as I read this (which always means that it’s something that really gets to me…).

I am getting my response ready right now! It’ll be live on my site bright and early Wednesday morning… Oh the suspense 😉

So glad you did this and introduced me to the exercise!

ANGEL! 🙂 Yes, yes, the mouth watering thing…I totally get it!

Oh I am so looking forward to reading your blog post Wednesday… come back here and post the link for my readers too, k?

May this week feel like [you fill in the blank] to you, dear Angel.

Hey you…. My post is live, here it is:

Thanks for letting me share here 🙂

Hope the week has been as you would like it to be as well <3

oh Angel… SO so so so beautiful (although that word doesn’t do it justice). I’m also adding your post link to mine, as I want my readers to experience YOU and themselves thru your words. Thank you, dear one.

p.s. My week has actually been very far from what I had wanted. So I’m finding the lessons there and holding onto the words and feeling of what I want.

I want all of my life and work to come from the boundless place I find when I meditate.
Beautiful blog Starla, it is poetry..


Starla J. King February 8, 2012 at 10:10 am

Mmmm, yes Martine… that place where everything is connected and meaningful and, as you said, BOUNDLESS. Beautiful.
