News & Updates
Mark your calendar! Conscious Growth Club will open its doors to new members during the last week of April. Our annual one-week window to welcome new members runs from April 25 to May 1, 2023. As we wrap up Year 6, we’re excited to embark on Year 7 together, starting May 1st. Get ready to join us for an incredible journey of growth and transformation! 🌟🚀
Today I teamed up with ChatGPT to revamp the 5-step quarterly planning process we use in Conscious Growth Club. Our AI collaborator expertly helped me streamline the process, reducing the word count by an impressive 38% without losing any essential meaning. We managed to cut nearly 2,500 words while keeping the same number of steps and reflective questions intact. We also addressed a low-engagement step, transforming it into a more engaging version. AI is a perfect match for this type of process refinement.
I’m currently attending a one-day workshop on TikTok led by my Transformational Leadership Council friend Raymond Aaron. I’ve never used TikTok before, so I’m just leaning in to explore divergently.
As part of the workshop, we’ll be recording and posting our first TikTok videos today.
My new TikTok account is @StevePavlina.
Update: The workshop is going well. I now have 4 new videos posted to my account. 😎
Another Update: I have no idea why, but TikTok permanently banned my account less than 48 hours after I posted my first video there. I only posted some pretty basic self-development videos, most of them only 15 seconds. Perhaps something triggered a false positive in their system. At least now I know that TikTok isn’t a match for me to invest in. I can’t even use my new account as a user to watch videos there either. Oh well!
Here’s a blog post about my TikTok banishment experience: Banned From TikTok in Under 48 Hours.
Our Submersion Social Deep Dive experience concluded on January 6th, 2023. This was a series of 9 bonus Zoom calls that I hosted for Submersion course members, one call per week for about 2 months.
This was a really beautiful journey for those who partook of it. On these calls members shared their experiences, and we did extra practice exercises together. I also shared some additional insights on Subjective Reality and ways to apply the course ideas.
Perhaps the most fun part was that each week we collectively selected and energized a new intention to weave into the journey – including using an intentional tracer. Then we shared the results and synchronicities on the following week’s call. It was fascinating to hear people’s manifestation stories each week.
All 9 of our group calls were recorded, and now they’ve been rolled into the Submersion course for the benefit of all current and future Submersion members. So in addition to the course’s 60 audio lessons, you can now watch one of these videos each week as you go through the course to add a whole new dimension to the journey.
Here are the 9 intentions we set along the way, including for future members:
1. Good luck
2. Surpassing old limitations
3. Let’s play with our dream team
4. Powerful flow
5. Heroic trust (support for bold action)
6. Smooth play
7. Magical mastery
8. Trust & unleash your voice
9. Embody your dreams
These intentions took the experience to a whole new level, creating a powerful interface for Reality to communicate in rich and playful ways all along the way – and well beyond into the future.
I have fond memories of sharing this journey together, and it’s a bittersweet feeling that it has finally come to a close. It feels like a graduation to the next phase of life.
As I shared in an email to the Submersion group on Saturday: “It was intense but gentle, meaningful but playful, social but deeply personal. I feel like my own energy balance was beautifully reconfigured during this time.”
For me this was a bit of an experiment too. Submersion was originally created as a solo journey – an audio course without a social aspect to it. Four years after its original release, we layered in this social version for those who wanted to take that kind of journey together. I must say that it was a very different and unusual two months – in a good way for sure. What a richly rewarding group adventure!
I certainly benefitted from this social exploration too. I sense that it’s going to keep creating beneficial ripples in my life and the lives of the participants for a long time to come. I feel like we invested two months in anchoring a lot of powerful energies into our lives.
I’d love to have more experiences like this, so I’ll stay alert for future opportunities of this nature. I think it was especially key to have this experience only with people who were truly aligned with it and ready for it. We referred to this as “full ass” mode, in contrast to people who half-ass their way through life. 😊
This was fun! More, please!
Our Submersion course group deep dive experience begins on Tuesday, November 1, 2022. You’ll find all the details in today’s blog post about it.
This is a run-through of our 60-day Submersion audio course on Subjective Reality, but this time we’re adding weekly live Zoom calls for everyone to connect, share, and participate in group manifesting experiments along the way. I’ll host calls every Friday from November 4th through December 30th. That’s 9 calls total.
One nice intention to focus on would be for everyone who does the deep dive together to manifest more than the price of the course in extra money flowing to them by the end of the year. Heck, let’s make it a LOT more. 💸💸💸💸💸
I just started telling people about this group experience, and we’re already at 42 sign-ups, so that’s a great start. Gotta love that 42 that’s been haunting us since Deep Abundance Integration. I expect that hundreds of people will want to do this together – we still have almost a week till the first call.
This month I reached an interesting vegan milestone. I’m finally at the point where I can now say that I’ve been vegan for most of my life.
I was non-vegan for the first 25.75 years of my life (309 months). For the last 3.5 of those years, I was lacto-ovo vegetarian.
I’ve now been vegan for the past 25.8 years of my life (309.5 months), finally surpassing my years as a non-vegan.
This assumes we don’t count my time in the womb. It will take a bit longer to compensate for those extra 9 months. 🙂
Of all the personal growth changes and challenges I appreciate having gone through, going vegan was the #1 most transformational, especially due to all the ripple effects it had.
I began this vegan journey with a 30-day trial in January 1997 to see what it was like. After the first week I never wanted to go back to the old reality.
I mentioned the idea of doing a Submersion course group deep dive experience together in my latest blog post about How to Shift Into a New Reality Faster. Submersion is a 60-day audio course with daily lessons and exercises to practice the perspective that you could be living in a simulation of sorts. I recorded Submersion in 2018 and 2019, and it’s been one of our most popular courses ever since (actually the #1 course in terms of sales). Submersion is ageless, so it’s just as relevant today as it was when it was first recorded. In fact, I recorded it with the intention that I would someday go through the course myself.
Here’s what I shared in that blog post:
I’m leaning towards going through Submersion myself this Fall, so I can do a concentrated deep dive into practicing the exercises every day. If other people are interested, perhaps we could make this a more social experience – do the exercises together and share our results. We could even do some group intention experiments along the way, much like we did with the fun and transformational Million Dollar Experiment. We never included a social layer with Submersion like we did with more recent courses like Amplify and Guild. I think I’m up for hosting a social version of the course if there’s enough interest – just let me know via my contact form if this appeals to you. Maybe we could have weekly calls as we go through the course together.
There’s clearly plenty of interest in this idea, so I say let’s do it! I can likely get this started within the next few weeks.
I’ll make this experience FREE for anyone who previously bought Submersion, including past and present members of Conscious Growth Club. I’ll email everyone in these groups to invite them to participate.
I still need to figure out the format for the group experience, but presently I’m envisioning weekly group Zoom calls with a pretty casual structure – lots of spaciousness for us to connect and share our experiences as we go.
I can share my own experiences of practicing Subjective Reality as well. I naturally practice this perspective every day, but it took a while to integrate it after I first got really into it about 20 years ago. I know that some people think it’s a bit “out there,” but I can’t complain about the results. The ideas in Submersion have created breakthroughs for myself and others where nothing else has moved the needle. It points us towards aspects of reality that give us a potent boost in the ability to create our realities.
I also think it would be wonderful to do some group intention experiences to help everyone in the group to manifest positive changes in our lives – such as financial abundance, relationship bliss, delightful adventures, beautiful growth experiences, and more. Let’s pool our collective energy to elevate everyone in the group and invite more yumminess into our lives. And let’s also devote some attention to intentions to elevate the planet as a whole – right now this world could surely use some of that.
For everyone else who hasn’t experienced Submersion yet, the cost to participate is nothing more than purchasing the Submersion course. More people have already done so since I shared this idea earlier this week, perhaps anticipating the group experience. But now I can say that I’m committed to it. I think it will be a fun way to connect, share, and encourage each other as we go through the course together. My heart, mind, and spirit all feel very motivated to do this.
I’ve never had the opportunity to go through one of my own courses as a student, so I’m really looking forward to this. I’ve been wanting to do this for years, and finally the timing feels right.
For this 4th quarter of 2022, I’ve been feeling drawn to explore a more spiritual direction, and I’ve noticed that many people are also resonating with the idea of focusing on a more expansive relationship with life – not just work, work, work. So I think the timing feels very aligned, and the Fall seems like a beautiful time of year to engage in this exploration together.
My intention is to help you create a more flowing, beautiful, and trusting relationship with life and reality. I expect this will be a very elevating experience for all who choose to participate. 💗💖💗
The new Guild course on social alignment now has two new bonuses, which are available immediately in the Guild member portal.
The first new bonus is called Guild Builders. It’s a collection of 15 short audios to help with long-term practice after the main course is finished.
The second bonus is a 25-page PDF called Empowering Social Reframes. It covers how to reframe a variety of social situations and challenges, including social anxiety, awkwardness, envy, loyalty, obligations, rejection, transitions, trust wounds, and more.
Enjoy the bonuses! 😀
The annual opening for new members to join Conscious Growth Club closed a few days ago. We landed with 66 CGCers for Year 6, so perhaps this will be our most demonic CGC year ever. 😈
Or if we don’t count Rachelle and me, it’s 64, which is 2^6. So we’re being haunted by 6’s for Year 6.
So far more than 330 people have been CGC members. Some have leveraged the group for short-term transitions while others approach it as a long-term investment to upgrade multiple areas of life.
Last year we had a bigger group, so CGC is smaller this year, but we also had more renewing members this year. The ratio of veteran members to new members is now about 2-to-1, so I think that will create a really interesting dynamic for Year 6. In the previous CGC year, the majority were new members, mainly due to a big influx from the Amplify course.
Several CGCers are in Vegas right now, and Rachelle and I have been having fun hanging out with them. We’ll be spending more time together this weekend as more people have been arriving still.
Our next opening for Conscious Growth Club Year 7 will begin around April 25, 2023. So please mark your calendar to check in here if you missed the opening window this year. We only open for about one week each year since CGC is a year-long program.
I’m not attached to how many members CGC has because it’s so flexible. With a bigger group there’s more energy and activity. With a smaller group there’s more intimacy and individual attention. I’d say that for Year 6 we’re somewhere in the middle, so it feels like a great number for a nicely balanced year. I like that. Somehow it feels like we landed right where we’re supposed to for this year. 😄
Today (May 3rd) is your last day to decide if you’ll join us for Year 6 in Conscious Growth Club.
Presently there are 48 members enrolled in CGC for Year 6 (fantastic!), and this will surely go up today. You can see the current sign-up count at the top of the CGC Invitation Page.
I know that many people carefully consider this decision right up until the final hours. Presently we have about 14.5 hours to go, so you still have time to decide.
Here are some links to other CGC-related resources to help you decide:
- CGC Invitation Page
- CGC Frequently Asked Questions
- CGC Q&A Video Call (freshly recorded on Monday, May 2)
- CGC Portal Walkthrough Video (recorded in 2019, but it will give you an idea)
- My Intentions for CGC Year 6 (blog post)
- CGC Sign-Up Form
Please make aligned decision today about whether you’ll join us in Conscious Growth Club this year.
Here’s to another fabulous year of CGC! ❤️😀❤️
To help people who are thinking about joining Conscious Growth Club this year make a wise decision, we’ll be hosting a public Q&A and “Meet the Members” Zoom call on Monday, May 2, 2022 at 11am Pacific time.
You’re welcome to attend if you’re interested in CGC.
Here’s the link to register for the call if you want to join us:
After you register, Zoom will send you the link to join the call.
I’ll answer people’s questions about CGC, and CGC members are also invited to join the call and share about their experiences and tips for new members. It’s also possible that some of our newest members who just joined in the past few days may be on the call, and if any are willing to share, you you may be able to get their perspective on how they made the decision.
So this is an opportunity for you to gain a little more perspective on what CGC is like inside.
We’ll record this call too, and I’ll share it on my blog afterwards, so if you can’t make the live call, you can still watch the recording.
My intention for this call isn’t to try to convince anyone to join, so it’s not going to be salesy. The purpose is to help you make the right decision for yourself and for CGC. If someone is a solid match for CGC, then everyone is well-served by making it easier for them take the leap and go for it, especially if more insider info would be helpful.
If you do feel aligned to join CGC already, then I invite you to visit the CGC Invitation Page and join us. The new CGC year runs through April 30, 2023, and your membership starts immediately when you join. So if you join now instead of waiting till May 3rd (the deadline to decide), you’ll get several extra days for your one-year membership, and you can begin engaging with the community right away.
If you join now, you can also start the next 30-day CGC member challenge with us, which begins on May 1st. Every month in CGC, we have a group challenge together, each month having a different theme. Our May challenge is to create and follow an exercise routine for 30 days. That’s really good for sharpening the mind as well as the body. Members are already opting into this challenge and now sharing their exercise plans. Rachelle and I are doing it too.
