This is the first year of the magical experiments course, and we are just a month in to it, but already attendees are getting a lot out of the process. Below is one of the testimonials from an attendee.
Wanted to say “thanks” for the response. I hadn’t heard of mind-mapping before, so I did some research on that and worked with it for a few days, to what I believe is a successful end. I realized I have the most passion and excitement for actual songwriting, and it would be less fulfilling to focus my efforts on the corporate writing, etc. Although uncertain at that point of how the money would come into play so I could achieve my “ultimate goal” most efficiently, I decided to just pursue the song-writing and let the Universe fill in the details in the best way possible — larger forces know better than me.
So, having come to that conclusion, I had a dream where I was delivered a song title, which I have begun developing into a marketable song I can sell. It’s not the type of song that would necessarily fit into my ultimate goal of being a singer-songwriter (not my style, although the message is still something I’m happy to put my name to), so I’m not concerned about “saving it for myself”. I’d be happy to sell it and it fits into a market where there is lots of money to be made and songs from independent writers are regularly purchased. I can practice my craft and get some “street cred” as a songwriter, while also accomplishing the financial goal of earning enough money to move away from the day job and pursue songwriting full time.
At this point the 2011 year is closed, but I will be teaching this class again in 2012. If you’re interested in taking your magical skills to the next level, then this class will be helpful for you. Best of all you get feedback from other attendees as well, so you’re working with a focused group.
