• How To Start A Band If you’re reading this article, you’re probably feeling a bit anxious about putting together your first extremely awesome band. Many people have no problem with this. They navigate the world with significantly more unconscious confidence than people like you and I, and go after what they want, free of any overt fear of messing it […]
  • Vocal Alchemy Bodies have a way of telling us what they need. Sometimes I notice mine SCREAMING at me, and I find that the times when I LEAST want to slow down and listen are the times when I MOST need it. This has happened to me so many times right after coming home from a 9 […]
  • Manifesting Your Own Misery One absolutely crucial “law” of manifestation is that what you think about perpetuates. If you focus on what you want as if you already have it, you’ll start bringing it into your life. And if you focus on what you don’t want, you’re going to perpetuate or manifest it in your life. But negative thinking […]
  • Manifestation As you guys know, I’m a big fan of manifestation practice. I consider it a psychological experiment on myself and I’m slowly building a long-overdue belief system that combines science with an intentional embracing of mystery and the unknown (what I consider “magick”). Only a couple weeks ago, I was feeling depressed and hopeless, because […]
  • Taming Anxiety In Bat Country I’ve struggled with social and generalized anxiety in some way for most of my life, but never really noticed it until I was about 25. I was suddenly having panic attacks multiple times a day, seemingly out of the blue. This lasted for months, and it took about a year to stabilize after starting therapy, […]
  • Overcoming Jealousy And Regret On the surface, jealousy and regret sound like two very dissimilar experiences. Jealousy is most often understood as envy of what someone else has, whereas regret is more like disappointment in something you did or didn’t do. But really, they come from the same place. They both come from a place of scarcity and can […]
  • Reasons To Drink I’ve been concerned about my relationship with alcohol for nearly a decade now. But it’s only been in the past two or so years that my drinking has become probably actually kinda unhealthy. When I first started wondering if I had a problem, I was drinking maybe 1-2 drinks a day 4 times a week, […]
  • What It Means To Align With Love The concept of “aligning with love” is stolen from an amazing man named John “Halcyon” Styn of Hugnation, who considers himself a “love warrior” and regularly encourages people to use love as a kind of spiritual guidepost. These phrases may sound fluffy to you, but I fully believe that this is core shit, and it takes an immense […]
  • Identity Magick This week was fucking ROUGH. I had a near traumatizing level of emotional pain caused by new turmoil in my life. I felt hurt, lost, alone, and I was at risk of collapsing under the weight of comparison and insecurity. But I didn’t take that route this time. Not this time. I think the pain […]
  • That One’s Dead Already I’m on an emotional roller-coaster right now. IT’S A POST BREAK-UP THING in this particular case. I’m swinging back and forth between resilient and hopeless, and in my heavier moments I feel vulnerable and insecure. Many of us tend to react to vulnerability by either shrinking or puffing up. We’ll either make ourselves appear weak in order to dissuade attackers (example real life scenario: […]
