If You Create...

If You Start with Nothing and End with Something...

If you are a creative type — an artist, writer, performer, designer, composer, maker, entrepreneur, builder, producer, business owner, project manager…

If you do, or oversee, work that starts with nothing and ends with something…

If you want to express more of yourself in your work while maintaining a high degree of relatability…

And you want to understand your process better to keep yourself in the zone…

When you know that your best work is informed by Spirit, but you could use some reliable methods for keeping in touch with the infinite flow of Source…

Then discover your unique creative process with the Empyrean Way and take your work from spark to finish.

Create Your Best Work with The Empyrean Way

Spark with inspiration, continually flow with imagination, easily know what to cut and what to keep, and confidently complete every project big or small. $240/month for 12 months.

Forget The One Way that is "No way!"

Doing your work is imperative for your health and welfare. You know this (and so does everyone around you!). You sit down every day to work. Some days the blank page gleams with inspired light. And some days it clouds over, morose and silent. You’re working. But you’re not seeing results despite your best plans and detailed to-dos.

What if it’s not your fault? You might be stuck in the morass of the typical. Other people’s solutions bog you down. Conventional expectations have spun you around so many times you don’t know which way is up. And if these voices become internalized as your inner critic, it feels like it isn’t worth it anymore. Not to mention that sometimes the ones who claim to support you actually bind and blind you with the strictures of the one way that is “No way!”

Your Unique Creative Process

There is a sequence for creating that is universal to all, but specific to none. This sequence outlines the steps of all creative endeavors. Yet each individual creator naturally modifies that process to make it their own.

You already know your unique creative process. Chances are you’re already doing it. You know it from the inside. But if you could get an outside perspective, you would learn how it can guide you when you’re stuck. The Empyrean Way program teaches this general continuum and then helps you pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses in the process so you can always follow your completely personalized path from spark to finish.

By the way, finishing is optional. WHAT??!! One person who worked with me was beleaguered by the fact that “he never got anything done.” His evaluation was based on the norm. But when we looked at his unique, personalized creative path, we discovered that he didn’t need to have a finished product. His process was his product. And you know what? He was already selling it, he just didn’t realize that was where he needed to invest everything, not waste time squishing himself into the one-way mold.

The Empyrean Way is the entrance ramp to YOUR WAY.

Feel Connected to Everything

Who needs the brake-slamming jolts of the road everyone else is on? When you have your own unique path to creativity, you’re cruising through the wide open country of sky high possibility. When you’re free, you feel connected to everything.

And isn’t your work about connection? Finding the things that fit because or despite? Providing others a new way of seeing, being, or doing? Sharing the universal in the personal?

The Empyrean Way Program starts with the mystical story of Divine Creation, and reminds you that when you create, you connect with Source. You reflect and identify with the Creator.

Maybe you don’t need all the rigamarole of fancy spiritual practices (although they can be fun and particularly great for performers). Creativity is your spiritual practice. Your work connects you to Spirit. Spirit guides your work. And through your work, you find Spirit within you.

Create Yourself

Everything that you create, creates you. Every time you rip it out and begin again, you redeem yourself. When you repair the cracks or sweep up the broken pieces, you restore yourself. Every time you burst with ideas, get on a roll, and get it done, you recreate yourself. Each cycle of starting, growing, perfecting, and realizing a project is a cycle of becoming better at being who you are. Walking your path. Living your way. Being completely you.

When you create, you create yourself. When you create, you are the creator. And you become one with the Creator.

The Creator is the Limitless Source of All that Is. Of all you can be. Of all you can create.

By understanding the story of creation — and the unique way, your way, in which you fit into that story — you achieve artistic success, personal fulfillment, and spiritual connection.

Big Work or Small Work?

You bring your work to the Empyrean Way program. The techniques taught illuminate the creative process from a mystical point of view while highlighting your unique strengths.

But what work should you do with the program? It’s your choice.

If you use a hobby or a series of smaller projects to familiarize yourself with the program, you can get the kinks out, become adept at the methods, and see faster results.

On the other hand, if you apply these methods to your big work, you’ll move yourself and your project from spark to finish entirely guided by the program.

How much personal and professional transformation can you realize in one year?
