Brace Yourself ~(˘▾˘~)
And maybe Enchant Yourself too, why not.
Ahoy and what-ho! Huzzah and hurrah for the last day of this mighty odd year.
Now’s the time all sorts of folk are bequeathing their wisdom and advice to you—of how to ‘own the new year’ and whatnot—and I suppose I’m no different. And yet oh but I am! And so are you. I have no vice to ad—but if you feel fatigued by notions of ‘success’ and feel disinclined to board the hype-wagon of goals and new year’s resolutions—if you’re inclined to genuinely invest some time into self-knowledge and development, to surface and find what meaningful progress might look like for you—then by golly do I have the spell for you.
The ‘Choose One Word Ritual of Becoming’ is here and ready for you, whenever you are. And you can get lifetime access for just 99 gold pieces* if you enter the code ‘SPECIALNESS’ before entering your credit card details. (* That’s code for $99 aud).
» This code is valid until end of January 5th, 2020 (I extended it a wee bit for you).
In over a decade of research as a wizard, I’ve encountered much in the field of self-development that is superficial and suspect—but the Choose One Word Ritual of Becoming is deeply wondrous. It has a fractal quality to it—it holds stable, useful and ‘true’ (no matter how complex your life may be). If you find yourself at a crossroad or in a rut—if you’re seeking new direction, or the means to find your groove—this online programme is for you.
You were taught to ‘dream big’, ‘set a goal’ and ‘believe in yourself’. Quaint. But maybe you’ve outgrown this?
Dreams are nice—but they can become tyrannical narratives. It’s also okay to not know exactly what you want in life. It may even be better. Besides: people change—our ‘dreams’, ‘passion’ and sense of ‘purpose’ (if we have such) are thus fluid narratives.
Goals are fine—but they only work in stable environments. If you’re training for a competition, go nuts. But if you are attempting to find meaningful progress amidst the complexities and ambiguities of life—you need a more infinite approach.
Self-belief is tricky—for it’s a paradox. If we believe too much in who we are, our sense of ‘identity’ can become ossified—making it harder to develop and grow. Believe in ourselves too little and, well… there’s some wisdom in that. Thus we cultivate character instead.
The Choose One Word programme will help you Find The Wit to Find Your Way.
It’s the only programme I know of made with fox-like-infinite-play-trickster-sensibilities in mind. No foolishly neat or linear ‘planning’ here. And next to very little advice. As Lewis Hyde espouses in Trickster Makes This World: Mischief, Myth, and Art:—
“Better to operate with detachment, then; better to have a way but infuse it with a little humour; best, to have no way at all but to have instead the wit constantly to make one's way anew from the materials at hand.”
Here’s an overview of the wondrous living programme curriculum.

The Odd Charm of the Solstice
In case you missed it, I made a new podcast episode for you last week.
The Daily Talk Show
Watch me goof up a teleportation spell, and generally natter profundity with the charming lads at The Daily Talk Show. Watch me butcher an Oracle reading, too (whilst stage winking at the rationalists listening in).
If you’re a fan of their work (as I am) you can support the show by joining the Choose One Word programme via this special affiliate link—learn.cleverness.com/word/aaxti. The ‘SPECIALNESS’ code will also work for you here, too.
Speaking of—some of our affiliate-ambassadors have made many hundreds of dollars in helping Spread the Word. And Kim and I have already mailed out quite a few new Enchanted Wizard Pins. If you’re curious and want in, you can learn more here.
Whew! Thank you for your support through the year. So much.
