This is going to be a difficult post to write, but I hope you’ll give me the time and stick with it to the end. I have a lot that I want to say.
I started this project back in 2015. Back then it was called Co-Creation Coaching.
Over the years it’s been known as various names, including Dark Ascent, and now Returning to Zero.
But my goal in those 5 years has always been to make the law of attraction accessible to everyone. Not just to get small things, either, but to really, truly, materially change your life.
I’ve been feeling a drifting away from this project, though, for quite a while if I’m being honest.
It actually started all the way back towards the end of 2017, when I quit my job to run this site full-time. I expected to love every moment of it — to feel like I was living out my purpose at last.
And, to be honest, it really didn’t. In fact I got bored with it after a while. It didn’t fulfill me like I thought it would.
So for the next couple of years, I tried to figure out why that was and what would fulfill me even more. I thought it was the one-on-one coaching I wasn’t clicking with, so I did more group classes, which I really did enjoy.
But I still found myself unable to commit a lot of energy here. I feel like it’s been on a slow decline for a while.
Several times, Christine said I should just let it go. But I always said, I’ve been doing this since 2015, I can’t just let go of it like that.
Then this year I started my new website, Possible Promise. It was to be a place where I broke down the complexities of money and wealth-building.
I know, on the surface it seems like a total 180 — from a site on spirituality to a site on finance. But to me it’s really not.
These days I live and breathe finance. It’s my passion and I spend hours every day immersed in it.
You might not see it at first glance when you go to Possible Promise. I’ve not posted there in about a month or so, after all.
However there’s a ton that’s going on in the background. I’m planning out how I want to run this website, trading in the market on a daily basis, and most of all, studying to take the exam I need to become an investment adviser.
Initially I was just going to run Possible Promise as a side project where I discussed finance and investing and did a bit of financial coaching, for which there are no certification or licensing requirements. However I really wanted to give actual investment advice, and to manage my clients’ portfolios, which I can’t do without being registered as an investment adviser.
So I’ve been doing a lot of work in the background (and spending a lot of money, too, lol), to make that happen.
The Universe has paved the way, making every step really easy and obvious.
Getting to the Point
So where’s all of this going?
I recently had an amazing Tarot reading done where it was pointed out that there was an old project holding me back from totally committing my energy to this new project.
Of course this had been on my mind for a while, and Christine had just asked me recently again whether it was worth keeping this going. But hearing it in the reading made it finally sink home that the Universe has been trying to communicate this to me for some time, and I’ve just not been listening (or been too afraid to listen).
I’ve hesitated to let Returning to Zero go because, it’s just what I’ve done for five years now. It’s literally my longest running project in my entire life.
Also I still get the periodic email that one of my old posts has really helped someone, or someone randomly signs up for an old course. In other words, it still seems to be helping people.
Heck I just finished a class a few weeks ago, called The Art of Surrender, and I believe the class was rather successful.
And, it’s just kind of become part of me. It’s hard to imagine life without this site at least being here.
But really, as I said above, it’s been on life support for a long time now, and I’ve just been too stubborn to let it go.
If you know me, you know I’m into magick. And magickally speaking, I believe sometimes you just have to let go of the old. You have to close those old doors, to make room for new doors opening.
And even though I’ve not been committing too much energy to this, it’s still a sort of energy drain just by existing. I think about how I should try to make a post, or I feel guilty for not doing more with it, etc.
So after the reading I had, I realized I just had to let it go once and for all and move on with my life.
This is easily one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make, but I’ve realized that it’s the right decision.
Today’s the full moon. I elected to make this announcement today because the full moon is a time of ending old projects, so I figured there couldn’t be a better time.
So as of today, June 5, 2020, here is what I’m saying:
I am totally, irrevocably releasing Returning to Zero. I will spend no more energy on this website (after a buffer period which I will discuss below).
What does this mean practically?
The first incarnation of this site, cocreationcoaching.org, is expiring on June 29. I will not be renewing it.
The next incarnation, darkascent.org, will expire on November 25. I will not renew it.
This domain, returningtozero.org, will expire on February 1, 2021. I will not renew it.
Until this domain has expired, all content on this site shall remain, but I will not interact with it in any way, shape, or form, nor will I add new content to it, or send emails to the mailing list.
I have a lot of courses at members.returningtozero.org. I have arranged for that course platform to expire on June 21 (at the next new moon). That means that all course content will be removed after that date.
The buffer that I was talking about is this approximately two week buffer until the new moon on June 21. I will respond to emails/comments, answer questions, etc, while everything is winding down until June 21.
After that date, this content will remain here until next year, but for all intents and purposes I will pretend it doesn’t exist. Energetically, I will totally move on to working on Possible Promise.
I have a lot planned for that site, including a podcast we’re starting next week, plus of course most of my time is dedicated to studying for the Series 65 so I can become an investment adviser.
If you are already registered for a course and want to have indefinite access, email me and I’ll be happy to send you the class recordings. You’ll have until June 21 to do so.
If you have been wanting to register for a class but haven’t done so yet, I’m making all my classes 50% off until it’s all taken down on the 21st.
Just use the coupon code FAREWELL50 to get that discount off of any class.
Some recommendations I’d have if you don’t have them yet would be:
- The Art of Surrender: In this class I teach how to live a life full of surrender, while still getting everything you want.
- Creating from Zero: This was the course where I introduced the concept of the Zero State, and taught how to consistently reach that state in order to manifest effortlessly.
- 7 Steps to Living at Zero: In this course, I broke down the concept of Zero into 7 simple steps you can use to reliably and consistently get into that state.
There are others of course, but these are three of my favorites from the past year. You can see the whole list here.
Again if you use the code FAREWELL50, you can save 50% off of these classes. And I’m happy to send you the recordings via email so you will always have access to them.
But note that I can only process your request until June 21. After that date, all course content will be deleted, and even if I had access, I am moving on from this project 100% after then.
Until then, though, I’m happy to answer your questions and help in any way I can.
As I said, this is an extremely difficult decision. I’ve tried to separate myself from this site before, but I believe nothing less than a 100% cut will actually do the trick. That’s why I’m taking such a drastic step.
My courses will be here until June 21, and these posts will remain, archived, until February 1 of 2021. But after that, Returning to Zero will be no more.
I appreciate everyone who has accompanied me on this journey. Some of you have been hanging around here for years and have seen all the various transitions this site has gone through, and stuck with it anyway. I am eternally grateful to you for that.
But, though I will not be around here, you can always come visit me at PossiblePromise.com. There will be some really cool things going on over there soon.
How do you even close out a post like this? I suppose I’ll close by asking you to remember that you can have anything you want in life (except, you know, the ongoing existence of this website 😈).
But seriously, I hope that my posts and classes have shown you the way to manifest reliably. Very likely, you already know the steps you need to take. It’s just a matter of taking those steps and applying the knowledge.
I’ve been doing this for five years. Not always perfectly, but I’ve proven to myself beyond all shadow of a doubt that this works, every time. Hopefully I’ve proven it to you, too, through my own story.
I wish you the best of luck on your own journey and hope that you find the fulfillment of your life’s purpose.
