Thank you for granting me access to your world for the past 10 years via the EditCopyProof blog. It has been a privilege to write content to empower you related to all aspects of conscious entrepreneurship.

The blog was a way to capture my perceptions, realizations and understandings in real time and share them with you to propel us all on the evolutionary path. It has now served its full purpose and as with any ending, a fresh beginning emerges.

As lived experience, I fiercely believe in the transformative powers of writing, intentional evolution, engaged process, and patronage (both as a patroness and beneficiary). Individually, I have witnessed each, casting its signature facet of magnificence, but combined they are a mighty force to wield as we become more equipped for all that lies ahead.

Writing. Evolution. Process. Patronage.
At the newborn evolutionary blog
at armed with ink on Patreon,
these 4 elements harmonize & synergize
on a single, potent platform.

I invite you to join the
evolutionary blog
on this sacred gateway nexus
of 1/11.


armed with ink

  • Ink is your creative medium.
  • You are on an intentional evolutionary path.
  • You are devoted to being actively engaged in the transformation process.

When you become a valued patron/ess of armed with inkby choosing from the 5 reward tiers with a minimal investment of $5/month – every week you gain access to rich blog content that equips you with the evolutionary insights, observations, mirrorings, prompts, examinations, curiosities, inquiries & musings to:

  • Navigate life with authority sourced by inner wisdom. (Be self-sourced.)
  • Harness the transformative power of process. (Be self-regenerating.)
  • Magnetize opportunity, synchronicity & prosperity. (Be self-sustaining.)

If this invitation resonates,
I look forward
to serving your personal evolution
so we can sparkle the hell
out of our individual roles
toward the next turn of our
collective evolution.

Sparkle On!

SO MUCH L*O*V*E,
Charlon

What a start to 2018! | Update

children holding handsWith a Supermoon on the 1st of January and so many other celestial and astrological events influencing, 2018 started with a roar. Only 6 days in, me thinks this is going to be an incredible year. Do you feel the immensity of the swirling energies? Do you see it already playing out in your environment? I’m so glad we’re in this together.

In the December update, I mentioned that big changes were on the horizon for EditCopyProof for 2018. Besides rebranding as armed with ink, I am retiring both the EditCopyProof and sparkingEvolution blogs. Yep, gone.

stepping stones

Those platforms were necessary stepping stones. They served a valuable purpose and that was to deliver us here. The information in both libraries isn’t pertinent anymore or remotely applicable to our capacity to create moving forward. They are being voluntarily surrendered as inspiration to make room for so much more. As a community, I and you outgrew their usefulness, which is a testament to how quickly we are evolving. Yay for us!

We are creating from the evolutionary edge now, aligned with infinite possibility and potential. That’s why a new blog platform was crucial. I could no longer build anything useful on those obsolete foundations.

gridworkIn 6 days – on the 1/11 gateway – you will be extended an exclusive invitation as a reader of the former EditCopyProof blog. The new “evolutionary blog” is intricately threaded into a fresh energetic gridwork and I look forward to seeing you there if it resonates with you.

 

loving wishes for a Happy Holiday + upcoming NEWS

I wanted to take a moment to wish you HAPPY HOLIDAYS. It is my sincere wish that you are enveloped in L*O*V*E during these evolutionary times, but especially as 2017 comes to a close.

Big transitions are on the horizon for EditCopyProof. After more than a decade of creating newsletter & blog content, the two are being consolidated into an evolutionary blog on a fresh, evolutionary platform. What-was is no more, in so many ways. We can bring nothing from the past forward.

The past few years have been a time of great silence within for many of us. I am no exception.

One-by-one, EVERYTHING I loved so dearly – including writing conscious sales copy and marketing content and my personal ambitions, desires, intents, dreams, passions & purposes – was invited to be placed on the altar of my life to be consumed by the fires of transformation. I acquiesced simply because I was too weary to hold on.

There were moments when I lost hope completely. Commerciallized Law of Attraction bullshit became grating noise. I didn’t even have the energy to do spiritual by-passing anymore (you know, “love and light!” said in thought or voice with an annoying, cloyingly-saccharin-sweet lilt. OMG, even now the idea makes me want to barf.). Core, foundational beliefs did not comfort me. Nothing was right, real or true. I had nothing to stand on or hold onto and yet from that vast darkness and profound sadness, something beautiful was crystallizing, unbeknownst to me.

But don’t get me wrong, on this side of being in the hot channel-o-tranformation I am not here to make you think I am Miss Mary Fucking Sunshine, emerging all put together. I am not. This has been an arduous journey through. I am pretty banged up. I KNOW you know what I mean, fellow traveler.

And yet… without sugar-coating anything, honestly, I love who I am and where I am. And I am still in-process. I love the perfectly imperfect BEing who supplanted who I was. (The former) She WAS NOT EQUIPPED to be online with what’s coming.

I am battered
AND so grateful for this process
that somehow pushed me through a pinhole so I could be this potent.

I earnestly appreciate how the journey works its magick when we completely give up… which I did… at least a million times, each time devouring something else I loved, which, in its wisdom, it always did without apology or looking back. Hah! You should have seen me so charred!


I don’t mean to portray victimhood here… at all. It’s just how it went down in my world and I cannot be the only one. Obviously, there’s a little more levity now than there used to be.

With my recent emergence, FINALLY, I see what I love returning to me in an elevated, 5D form. My elevated Self can now meet The Infinite in a way that was not possible before. I have something new to bring to life and to you with a fresh clarity.

And that’s the juice I’ve been waiting for.

I will send you an update in early January with specifics about the new construct of EditCopyProof. Until then, be well, take good care and be loving and patient with yourself and others. In the most frustrating moments, the smallest reminders to ourselves to be kind have immense power.

I L*O*V*E you.

Divine Desire eclipses my own desire

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Many of us learned to create based on clarifying our ambitions, desires, intents, dreams, passions or purposes. Manifestation guides told us this is how Law of Attraction works. We’ve crafted vision boards, ritualized at the Full and New Moons, Solstices and Equinoxes, made lengthy journal entries and prayed or meditated our asses off. We’ve magnetized partners, jobs, money and opportunity.

And it is my current understanding that this methodology was a mere stepping stone to the infinite possibility of where we now stand… IF we are willing to allow The Infiniteness (however you define that or whatever identifier you give it) to totally eclipse our finiteness, just like the recent full solar sensation.

For awhile now, I’ve experienced zero resonance with my personal & personality-identified ambitions, desires, intents, dreams, passions or purposes. (Think: anything with an egoic orientation.)

I want nothing that’s on the other side of me being the source of creating. I’ve fully explored that route and very little that I created/manifested from that basis has proven to be satisfying in a sustainable way. Therefore, that path is no longer an option for me. I want to live and BE far beyond that which I can create. Instead of living the outpicturing of my own desires, I want only and exclusively to create via Divine Desire.

No longer finding intrigue or solace in the smallness & finiteness related to my human capacity to generate, I am contented to set aside my tiny view for a panorama of galactic proportions. I want exclusive access to The Infinite and am willing to acquiesce whatever is left of my personal aspirations to have that experience.

That’s what freedom sparks right now, yet I assure you, this approach goes against all of my conditioning/indoctrination/training. Maybe you can relate.

This level of BEingness – that is simultaneously FULL of the highest aspects of Self and increasingly absent of ego/personality/self-identity – seems unnatural, but only because as a collective we have normalized the insanity of the need to be the epicenter of our life creations.

If the ego needs no stroking;
If we no longer seek validation or acknowledgement;
If we are at-rest never being seen or heard on a global platform;
If our contributions are not associated with success;
If our businesses are not weighted by our need to have them be income generators;
If our full purposes are lived merely by our BEing…

… with fully-open, confident hearts we can place our human ambitions, desires, intents, dreams, passions and purposes on the altar of The Divine Orchestrator. We can trust this entity-o-Infinity so completely that we wouldn’t even momentarily consider that we could orchestrate better than It. I know I can’t. History has hashed that out. 😜 It’s time to try something (r)evolutionary.

By its innate benevolence, bounty and grace, The Infiniteness has the power to transform us simply by our permission and allowance. No efforting required. I don’t know about you, but that’s a welcome relief. I just don’t have the bandwidth anymore to manifest in the the old way. It requires too much of me. And I take that as a clue that there’s a much easier way to be in the world moving forward.

As I nestle more into this vein of exploration, I experience tangible, positive proof that this brilliant guidance is a trustworthy ally.

  • I don’t worry about the how’s so much anymore.
  • I don’t hope that the inquiry last week will lead to a business contract this week.
  • I don’t intend for anything specific to come into being.
  • Money doesn’t wag me about anymore.
  • I don’t aspire to any level of anything.
  • I have no mission, no particular purpose, or passion.
  • I don’t engage ritual to activate or incite a response.

All of those systemic impulses & patterns are being eclipsed.

I am solely engaged in the activity of continuing to give free-reign to that which is benevolent (my personal understanding), and masterfully orchestrating the blessed timing, events, people and circumstances for my highest benefit, however that looks. I don’t care about the container anymore; whatever, however or whenever events unfold.

What I envision as a human can only be finite with a finite magnetism. That’s not enough for me now. I want what I cannot create for myself via my own desires. Divine Desire innately comprises infinite perspective/potential/possibility. As an experiment, I align with that in the spirit of genuine curiosity to see what’s vicariously possible for myself.

marketing as spell-casting

(Black) magic is simply the manipulation
of electromagnetic energy with will and intent.

Max Spiers

Marketing can be a dangerous game.

As we craft the words for positioning our products and services for sale, how deeply do we examine our intent behind those words? Are we blindly yet willingly perpetuating the status quo because we think that’s the only way to be successful in business? Are we unknowingly participating in the tyranny of manipulation marketing with personal or professional agendas in attempts to commodify people?

gridworkWhen you look closely at – and feel into – the energetic gridwork of most marketing content within the entrepreneurial world (websites, programs, books, sales pages, ads, campaigns, etc.) you will see and sense a distinct layer; a counter-cross-hatched complexity that is intended to undermine and override one’s sense of what’s right for them… ultimately, yet not surprisingly, for the direct benefit of the marketer.

If you have an agenda – any agenda – you’re spell-casting. You’re using a strategic methodology to get people to do what you want them to do.

agendaAgenda comes in many subtle nuances and it’s often easier to see (and feel) if you know the myriad ways it can show up. If you are using words to cajole, coerce, convert, entice, seduce or even mildly-influence people into taking the actions you place in their path – directing them to your *#)&ing 😳 sales funnel, corraling them into signing up for your mailing list or blogroll, getting them to your latest offering with a “squeeze page” (yes, it’s actually called a “squeeze page” to channel people into taking the action proposed), converting them to an over-priced service based on a fabricated value or offering a free consultation in a seemingly innocuous attempt to assess their value to youTHAT IS MANIPULATION.


We spell words with letters.
Those words are woven into our marketing content.
That process is the art of spell-casting.



Opposite Polarities, Same Spectrum

If, according to Max Spiers, black magic is the manipulation of electromagnetic energy with will and intent, then white magic, too, is the manipulation of electromagnetic energy with will and intent. Whatever your agenda – world domination (black) or building a business by commodifying people (white?) – spell-casting IS spell-casting. PERIOD.

white magicThe difference with white magic is that we justify our actions by cloaking them in spiritual language like “good,” “light,” “purposeful,” “helping,” “service,” “empowerment,” and create our products and services from this platform. And it is that justification that perpetuates marketing tyranny.

It’s important to understand:

Black energies and white energies
are the polarity ends of THE SAME SPECTRUM.

It’s time to wake up and consciously create AN ENTIRELY NEW SPECTRUM free of our personal influence. Via heightened sensitivities, we now have access to elevated ways of being and living.

We can engage electromagnetic energy from a very different perspective; with the will and intent to have no compromising personal or professional agenda(s). It is only then that the organizing forces of natural attraction have the full range to orchestrate the perfect people, events and synchronicities in the highest interest of all.

conscious creationThis is not an easy exploration, for sure, but it is vital for heart-sourced, purpose-driven, spiritually-inspired, awareness-oriented business owners if we want to BE and PORTRAY in full congruence.

It is essential to eliminate all manipulative agendas from our language, our marketing endeavors, and our everyday practices. And raw examination is the only way to honestly see how we are actively and ongoingly complicit in marketing manipulations. From there we can choose differently.

We have a responsibility to our collaborators, clients and customers because they deserve way better from us than even our very best marketing manipulation. As we consistently hold ourselves to a higher accountability, the agenda-base will become obsolete.
