Imagine if you’d never before heard of LSD or anything like it, but one day the wicked barista at your local coffee shop drops 3 tabs into your mocha.
Suddenly you’re tripping your face off, and you have no fucking idea what’s happening, and what’s more, you’re in the middle of a busy downtown sidewalk.
It’s really understandable if at this point you would start to freak out, get really paranoid, and experience a tremendously terrifying trip as your “I don’t know what’s happening, am I going crazy?” fear would dramatically color your whole experience of the world for about 6 – 7 hours.
You might get arrested, or end up in a psych ward.
After such an awful experience, if you came to your normal sober senses and figured out what happened – you might consider LSD to be “evil” and you would probably never want to think about it again.
Of course – LSD isn’t evil. It’s a very powerful substance that with the right set & setting can be tremendously empowering, revelatory, fulfilling.
Now think: the attitude of “I got secretly dosed with LSD and now I hate and fear the stuff” is very much like most people’s attitude towards money: they regard it as evil, suspect, dirty, burdensome, scary – and they don’t really want to have to think about it, ever.
Either folks want to get rich so they never have to think about money, or they just try to think of money as little as possible immediately, so they never bother with trying to get rich.
This aversive attitude is very understandable. Of course we feel generally yucky about money – and of course we don’t really want to think about it – it’s a very powerful psychedelic that we’ve been secretly dosed with throughout our lives!
We’ve all been stumbling around, tripping our faces off on the money-pharmakon, not even knowing that we’ve been dosed, with zero control over our set and setting, generally terrified.
(A pharmakon is a drug, medicine, poison – and, incidentally, the term that Plato’s Socrates used to describe written language, which is something we’ll be exploring during the MONEY course).
It’s no wonder that most of us have been having bad, bad trips with money and that we would much rather be finished with having to deal with it altogether.
Now imagine: what if you knew exactly how to gorgeously manage the set & setting of your life-long money trip, with shaman-level skill?
What if instead of cluelessly stumbling about, wracked with anxiety, you had a way of working beautifully and subtly with the money-pharmakon?
That’s what we’ll be learning to do in the MONEY course.
Consider this: with all psychedelics, set and setting (short for “mindset and environmental setting”) make a huge difference in how much you enjoy or benefit from your trip.
Money is a very powerful psychedelic substance (i.e. it amplifies the psyche, especially contents that are usually unconscious), and almost no one in our cultural acknowledges this or works seriously with this fact.
But acknowledging the psychedelic power of money and working deliberately with it can make a crucial difference in how much fulfillment and wealth you experience in your life.
It’s a massive transformation, and it makes whole new giant vistas of experience possible, like these ones that students from the last round of MONEY experienced:
“I completely transformed my relationship with myself, with money and with existence itself. I can’t stop feeling deep appreciation and gratitude for everything I am and what I have.
My goal was to receive $10k more than we needed to pay for our wedding, and received nearly that exact amount above our costs!”
“I manifested my number ($10,000!) in a crazy synchronous way and finally quit bartending to begin birth doula work after 15 years in hospitality and many years of wanting to take a leap of faith.”
“This course completely transformed the way I view consumption. Every single transaction I make now is a beautiful, spiritual, fulfilling experience.”
“I had my first $42K month!”
“During the course, I received the highest single payment ever…it came easily and from someone who is not only deeply grateful for my work, but also capable of applying my greatest gifts.
In addition, 2 new clients operating at the top of their fields showed up. I’ve broken through into a higher octave.”
“By building a relationship with the Spirit of Money, I was able to dig into all of my issues with her—issues that go back generations and probably lifetimes—and ultimately work toward transforming my mistrust of her. Now, she is like my sister.”
“By week 2 I had doubled my bank account. I received an influx of job opportunities and received a raise in pay. I finally began to own that I am a creative freelancer and structure my financial situation to reflect that. I am on week 5 and am nearing having quadrupled my bank account.”
“I have signed multiple client contracts for more than 3x the amount I’ve ever been brave enough to ask for before the course! And I’ve started learning how to truly save some of that money.”
Whether or not you decide to take the course, I hope you ponder this little LSD / money parable deeply – it alone can dramatically open up your life.
