40 DAYS to (re)Write The story of your life

With Sherene Vismaya

WRiting ourselves out of the past into a conscious, magical narrative of the divine present.

Our lives fly by and before we know it's the final chapter. And yet, have we really taken the time to deeply reflect and recollect our personal story? Have we shown the proper reverence for this precious gift of life through  introspection, reflection and integration of what we have learned? The soul teaches in retrospect which is why even the planets go over old ground in their retrograde motion cycles. 

By the re-membering, re-collecting and re-telling of specific moments of our personal biography, we not only realign and reintegrate those pieces of Self that have remained only partially conscious or unrealized but we also leave behind those parts of the story that keep us captive in a repetitive loop of a narrative we've outgrown. Mercury Retrograde in the sign of Gemini is the perfect opportunity to retrace the steps of our personal story in order to rewrite the narrative of the Self into a more intentional, focused and fully alive present so that we consciously create our future.

Through a series of archetypal prompts, we enter into a dialogue with the unconscious to reveal which pieces from the past still have a hold on us for better or worse. We can build on the strengths of our past. We can let go of the weaknesses, or self-defeating patterns by making them conscious. We will also tap into pieces of the story that hold the keys to what the Self is up to in this lifetime.

What are the recurring themes, patterns, and highlights in our personal narrative? Which reiterations, projections and relationship patterns with lovers, friends, family, partners, colleagues, our children, and most importantly with our Self-Dialogue? On the path to Self-Knowledge, entering into a deep dialogue with the Self and those key intersections between the divine and human, those numinous moments in our life that have a way of defining our script and what and where our psyche tends to dwell and from where it sources in order to recreate  throughout the cycles of our life.

Special bonus of this project is having created the very foundation of your very own memoir by the end to have, hold and perhaps even publish! 

 

We start this powerful. life-altering 40-Day journey AN OPENING CIRCLE AND OFFERINGS FOR A SPECIAL NAVAGRAHA (9 Planets)-MAHA GANAPATI PUJA (TAKING PLACE IN INDIA) TO REMOVE OBSTACLES AND BRING IN ALL THINGS AUSPICIOUS FOR OUR 40 DAY JOURNEY.

As your guide, I'll be checking in with you once a week on a live to discuss the current astrology and answer any questions. we'll have a formal opening and closing ceremony with times for q + a!

 

 

**Big suprirse bonus is that I will be bringing in my NYC writing mentor, author of over twelve books including a NYT best seller to inspire and support those who wish to take their P40 memoir or any future books into the world.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

 

Q: I WILL BE TRAVELING DURING THIS TIME, HOW WILL I KEEP UP?

A:  YOU RECEIVE THESE MESSAGES STRAIGHT TO YOUR INBOX AND CAN DO THEM ON YOUR OWN TIMING FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

Q: I CAN'T ATTEND THE WEEKLY LIVES ON WEDNESDAYS. WILL THE  LIVE CHECK-INS BE RECORDED?

A: YES, ABSOLUTELY AND YOU CAN WATCH THEM ON YOUR OWN TIME

Q: WHAT IF I FALL BEHIND?

A: START WITH THE MOST RECENT DAY SO YOU STAY PRESENT WITH US AND THEN GO BACK TO THE DAYS YOU MISSED WHEN YOU GET THE TIME.

Q: MY LIFE IS SO BUSY HOW WILL I FIND TIME TO KEEP UP WITH THIS?

A: EVEN TWENTY MINUTES A DAY TOTAL OR EVEN ONLY READING THE EMAILS HAS PROVEN TO BE COMPLETELY LIFE-ALTERING FOR MANY. THERE IS NO WRONG WAY TO DO THIS P40. THE CONTAINER IS VERY POWERFUL AND ALL GET TRANSFORMED IN THIS ALCHEMICAL ALEMBIC.

Q: I HAVE NEVER WORKED WITH TAROT CARDS SO I FEEL INTIMIDATED. WHERE WOULD I START?

A: MANY ARE BRAND NEW WHEN THEY FIRST START AND END UP FALLING IN LOVE WITH THIS TOOL FOR DEEPER INTROSPECTION AND JOURNALING. I RECOMMEND STARTING WITH A DECK THAT SPEAKS TO YOU AND JUST WORK WITH THE IMAGES THE WAY YOU WOULD WITH A DREAM OR FREE-ASSOCIATION AND THAT ALONE WILL START TO OPEN YOUR DIALOGUE WITH THE UNCONSCIOUS.  IF YOU PREFER YOU CAN SKIP THE TAROT SECTION AND STILL GET TONS OUT OF THE JOURNALING WORK.

Q: I FIND JOURNALING BORING SO HOW WOULD THIS BENEFIT ME?

A:  CHANCES ARE YOU HAVEN'T HAD INTERESTING ENOUGH PROMPTS TO COMPEL YOU TO WRITE. CHALLENGE ME TO CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT JOURNALING. OFTEN WRITER'S BLOCK IS JUST THE RESISTANCE OF THE EGO TO GO DEEP, BUT FOR TRUE CREATIVITY TO FLOW, THIS MUST BE ADDRESSED AT SOME POINT. WHY NOT NOW?

Q: HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER 21-DAY OR 60-DAY CHALLENGES? 

A: 40 IS THE NUMBER OF ALCHEMY, VENUS RETROGRADE CYCLES AND A LONG LIST OF OTHER MYSTICAL EXPERIENCES THAT IS UNPARALLELED. THE REASON AFTER COMPLETING 43 OF THESE JOURNEYS IT IS STILL GOING STRONG IS BECAUSE THEY WORK AND NEVER GET OLD.

Q: I KNOW NOTHING OF JUNG OR ALCHEMY , WILL THIS BE OVER MY HEAD?

A: YOU PROBABLY KNOW MORE THAN YOU THINK AS HIS TEACHINGS ARE NOW EMBEDDED IN SO MUCH OF THE LANGUAGE OF MODERN SPIRITUAL WORK AND PSYCHOLOGY INCLUDING CONCEPTS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED LIKE SHADOW, COMPLEXES, PROJECTION, ETC. PLUS I ALWAYS MAKE IT FUN, IN REAL TIME AND DOWN TO EARTH PRACTICAL APPLICATION WITHOUT LOSING THE MYSTICAL ELEMENTS SO DEAR TO HIS WORK.

 

 

 

 

My soul, where are you? Do you hear me? I speak, I call you - are you there? I have returned, I am here again. I have shaken the dust of all the lands from my feet, and I have come to you, I am with you. After long years of long wandering, I have come to you again. Should I tell you everything I have seen, experienced, and drunk in? Or do you not want to hear about all the noise of life and the world? But one thing you must know: the one thing I have learned is that one must live this life. Do you still know me? How long the separation lasted! Everything has become so different. And how did I find you? How strange my journey was! What words should I use to tell you on what twisted paths a good star has guided me to you? Give me your hand, my almost forgotten soul. How warm the joy at seeing you again, you long disavowed soul. Life has led me back to you. Let us thank the life I have lived for all the happy and all the sad hours, for every joy, for every sadness. My soul, my journey should continue with you. I will wander with you and ascend to my solitude.

JOURNAL AS MIRROR:

 

This P40 is devoted to the alchemy of a daily magical writing and journaling practice infused with prompts to take you into key moments of this incarnation's life script, soul longings, unveilings, spiritual teachings, trials, tribulations and triumphs over fear and adversity. We rewrite the script as we retrace our steps with the wisdom of the NOW.  Those moments where the divine intersects the human.

 

Project 40 is a potent transformative cauldron of Jungian Depth Psychology, Alchemy, Metaphysics and Experiential Astrology and has been developed and deepened over the past decade with now 44 Project 40's completed with a growing soul family of seekers who come together from all over the world to do the deep work.

Registration for our sacred circle is now open to incubate our 40-Day intentions together and allow the dream material to awaken and guide. There's a wonderful circle already gathering with people from all over the world and we'd love you to join us!

We officially begin the 40-Day journey on Wednesday, June 16, 2021

 

 

 

rewriting the narrative of the self


Divine confluence happens when we devote our spiritual practices and soul work to the synchronicity of living moment to moment under the auspices of the planets. Our self-actualizing potential is containted in the divine mandala of our horoscopes which tell our life story. this 40 Days is devoted to living this on a daily basis through dedicated practice and sacred community.

As in every Project 40, you can expect daily omens, magic, miracles and synchronicity as the norm. As with any deep dive, the more you put in the more you receive and yet even if you do absolutely nothing more than read the daily emails, you will still benefit from the powerful 40-day container.

The work is so interesting! The use of artistic and spiritual archetypes, the observance of life-patterns, the attention to dreamwork and personal ritual/practice, and practical applications of and recommendations for bodywork/breathwork combine for a thorough therapeutic experience.

The P40 Intensives offer the opportunity to extend one's work into a private cybergroup setting (participation can be as involved as personally desired - no pressure!), with specific esoteric themes upon which to focus. Surprising and often amazing revelations abound! The personal transformations can be subtle, can be profound - but are always unique and ever-fascinating. Sherene's methods are progressive and dynamic, and help to manifest positive changes in personal attitudes toward life and this world."

Thank you. You are such a major part of my healing. Even my physical therapist notes the improvement, it’s on a cellular level.
Yes, your way of journaling is inspiring and you ask the ‘right’ questions to help me really think about my self and gain insight. Grateful. –Lorae
