Some Big News About My Business & Life

Some Big News About My Business & Life

I have some important news that I want to share with you … After much thought, soul searching, and heartache I’ve decided to close my online school, School of the Modern Mystic®. 

As you may already know, I created School of the Modern Mystic® in 2013. This was a time when there weren’t many—or maybe any—online schools and courses for modern mystics and spiritual seekers. My intention in founding the school was clear: I wanted to bring the “teachings,” those spiritual practices that had radically improved my life and those of my clients, to everyone.

I wanted everybody to learn about the importance and power of chakras and the White Light. And I wanted to empower modern mystics with the knowledge that they simply needed to go within and change their energy to change their lives.

School of the Modern Mystic® taught over 1,500 people—through a six-month intensive training—how to heal their chakras, work with the White Light, meditate like a zen monk, and manifest a life of beauty and splendour. I’m deeply proud of my school and how, through it, I feel I made a significant contribution to the field of energy medicine, chakras, self-healing, and self-empowerment. (My Free 7-Day Chakra Kit has also helped many. To date, 35,000+ people have taken it and learned how to change their chakras and change their lives.)

I must also say—with deep humility—that I believe my school offered one of the best trainings. (Many people have said the best training in the world for modern mystics and spiritual seekers.) I stand firmly and proudly behind my school and its courses.

But, like all things in life, change is inevitable …

For some time, I’ve grown more and more discontented with my role as owner, CEO, and director of School of the Modern Mystic®; and I’ve grown more and more tired with the constant “hussle” needed to run, launch, and sustain a large online school like mine.

Many people don’t realise how much work goes into having an online program, particularly one like mine that is a six-month intensive and extensive training. (Most online courses are only 8 weeks.) As the entrepreneur and CEO you have to employ many people to keep the wheels of the business turning, and you also have to be very active online, have good tech and website knowledge, network within certain “circles” to market and sell your course, and then prep for a huge launch each year.

And then, of course, there’s outreach, affiliate marketing, email marketing strategy, social media strategy, and so on. There’s also the fact that you have to keep your “finger on the pulse” of the market and new technology and launch sequences. As well as organise, run, and manage an entire team, 24/7.

And truthfully, this isn’t all of it …

It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to you that I don’t like the online marketing aspect of all of this. I haven’t been shy about voicing my personal struggles and concerns about the “shadow” side of the online world and social media. I’ve always been transparent about this, and have openly shared my inner-conflict and concerns.

But, I love sharing my insights and musing with others—particularly those insights and musings that have hugely, positively impacted my life. And I love uplifting and inspiring others. That is why I created School of the Modern Mystic® in the first place.

Yet, over the years my feelings of overwhelm and discontent about all of this have grown. Not lessened. Even when I tried to hire other people or delegate tasks; even when I tried to do less online and on social media. Even when I tried to find a work balance where I could focus more upon my writing and insights and less upon the online world and keeping up with it all, I found the hours of my day increasing with email, tech, calls, team management, organisation, marketing, and strategy.

Despite all of my efforts to strike a balance, I was still moving further and further away from a balanced and introspective life. 

I’m a mystic at heart and am very introverted. My ideal day consists of being alone and meditating, writing (and honing my craft), “journeying,” sitting in silence, reading a new novel—usually gothic-horror or paranormal fiction—and petting my little dog while I sit on the back porch looking out over the trees and lake.

I’m not only a mystic at heart; I’m also a highly sensitive psychic. Lots of time and space is essential to my well-being. (Like many introverts, I also have an extroverted side. Hand me a microphone, put me on stage, and watch me turn into a firecracker. I love speaking and giving events!)

So, the highly social side of the online world and online marketing has always been difficult for me. It’s also doesn’t help that I’m not interested in networking or connecting with people or “influencers” who could help my online school get exposure. (I only connect with someone if I I genuinely love and respect their work; it’s never with the hidden agenda of self-gain.)

It’s for all these reasons that I’ve decided to close my school … although it breaks my heart because I love and adore my students.

If you have always wanted to do my School of the Modern Mystic® course, you are still able to. This year will be the last time we run the school before it closes. Enrolement begins mid March, and the course starts early April.

This year’s course will be the best ever, because I want to go out with a bang!

I do hope you join me!

with love + gratitude,
