thank you craft_uas!
If you’ve come across this site because you’re interested in The School of Life Design, hooray! It’s time to talk.
The first eight lessons in the school are integral to learning how to create your own belief system and start living the life of your dreams. But what comes next? What happens after you learn about life design, start lifestreaming, practicing feeling good, loving yourself, and letting go of negative thought? Is that all there is to learn?
Hell no! How boring would that be? That’s why I am introducing the first lesson of Advanced Life Design (ALD) right here, right now! Lessons in ALD are for everyone, but they assume you’ve got your basics covered:
- you love yourself
- you practice directing your thoughts by focusing on what you want (often using a website)
- you spend most of your time feeling good.
If you’re just tuning in…
Welcome to the leading edge of consciousness expansion on the Internet! Here’s what’s been up with jessicamullen.com the past year: I discovered the law of attraction and power of feeling good last spring, right after running a marathon and receiving my MFA in Design at the University of Texas. I immediately began practicing positive thinking and carried the practice onto my lifestream. The two combined into a beautiful love child, The School of Life Design.
The School of Life Design teaches that life is supposed to be fun, and that keeping a lifestream website is a way to focus your brilliant creative energy on enjoying life. Having a website about your life is essentially an exercise in having fun.
Now what? There must be more to life than just enjoying it. Life is a lot deeper, right?
Well before we can go any deeper, we better practice feeling good. A lot. Every single day. Every moment we can. I have some worksheets (and work books!) to help us practice feeling good and loving ourselves, because for the advanced course we’re going to want the beefiest feeling-good muscles on the block!
While we practice, let’s manifest ourselves some money to fund our adventures into uncharted waters. Get a Website, Get Happy, Get Paid teaches you how to set up the infrastructure of your business of being.
Next you can join the rainbow brite club! Haha jk, but it is where all the coolest life designers hang out. The School of Life Design Forum is to help with specific questions about your unique situation – whether it has to do with your website or the meaning of life in general.
A membership to the forum buys you the best lifestreaming advice on the web along with a place to ask questions, receive site critiques, and teach and learn from other life designers. It’s like going to school for a web design and positive psychology degree at your own pace.
If life genuinely is just a (really long) trip, consider the forum to be your trip guide minus the drugs. What did you come here to accomplish? Come play in the forum with other people asking the same questions!
So what comes next? How do we find more meaning in life after learning the essentials? Here’s my view.
Advanced Life Design: a bigger picture
This is what you’ve been training for. This is the next level. Welcome.
This lesson is a primer of concepts in Advanced Life Design. ALD is about accessing your power as a physical and vibrational creator, evolving your consciousness, accepting your inherent worthiness, and releasing all fear. If you’re able to read this, HIGH FIVE for being a vibrational match to this information!
Now you understand that when something bad happens, it’s actually good – it indicates change, the universe aligning to bring you what you actually want. You see setbacks as fun challenges, gorgeous puzzles gifted from the universe for you to watch unfold.
No matter what happens it’s the perfect solution. Well being flows and is everything. Only your own choices of thoughts and perception would ever lead you astray. And then you realize there really isn’t ever any “astray”. Everything is good and it’s only a matter of time before the good is revealed. The more you believe that, the more good you can perceive in each moment.
Here’s what’s actually up with reality: it moves in a flow. And when you’re synced up with it, you have the most creative power you could ever imagine. Anything you want will materialize in front of your eyes, once you learn how to use your power.
You have to practice to get any good at using your power. There are different ways to “tune in tap in turn on”, which is what you need to practice doing to access this colorful world of magick and fun.
Two paths to embracing your power as a physical and vibrational creator
#1: Practice controlling your thoughts and emotions:
- Practice feeling good any way you can, all day every day. Feeling good is how you experience differentiation from the whole. Be you. The preferences you have developed through life experience are what tell you what feels good. Follow your unique preferences and you will always feel good. For example, if you prefer to create by writing, do that. Whatever feels like what you want is the direction you should go in. That’s how we all feel we have value – in our uniqueness. That is the beauty of physical reality – our individual perspectives are all so unique.
- Practice letting go. All you really need to move onto Advanced Life Design is to trust that the universe will take care of you. Believe in the big picture. Anything you want, all you have to do is have a strong desire and then stop thinking about the desire so you can stop projecting a vibration of lack. When you let go of your strong desires (by creating new ones!), the universe will bring them to your doorstep.
#2: Practice losing your ego and increasing your awareness of your oneness with the universe:
- with exercise. Lots of it, every day, for multiple hours a day. Training your physical body to do what it knows how to do without negative thought interference from you teaches you that you are not your body. Vigorous, regular exercise eliminates ego-the sense that you are separate from that which you came.
- by playing or flowing any way you can, as much as you can. Practicing being in a flow state creates more awareness of the whole. You are not separate from anything in your reality. And when you know you’re not separate from anything, you can follow the divine pulse of life – which is how you flow in sports or dance or other movement activities. Group fitness classes, team sports, and choreographed movements performed with other people are a great way to get in the spirit.
- by tripping and meditating. Entheogens remove your mental obstructions (ingrained thought patterns) to your power and visually show you the flow of reality. They teach that you are not your body by producing a feeling of disassociation from ego. Meditation induces a similar state. In an interview with the author of Psychedelic Information Theory, James Kent describes the increasing perceived value of psychedelics:
Look at the modern popularization of yoga and meditation as an example. A hundred years ago these practices were considered esoteric and the realm of monks and orientalists, but now they are commonplace fitness routines for suburban housewives. I would wager that fringe practices of psychedelic drug use and neurofeedback stimulators will be as commonplace a hundred years from now as yoga and meditation are today.
Playing Astrojax is my favorite way to practice awareness of the whole on a daily basis. You might like poi, hooping, or other flow toys. What exactly is flow you ask? Flow is a state of moving effortlessly, of trusting your body to know what to do, of letting creativity pour out of you naturally without any negative thoughts or barriers to joy. It’s the feeling of your skills perfectly matching the challenge. Flow is what any athlete, musician, artist, performer or other type of creative genius feels. It’s the feeling of trusting your inspiration to guide you towards the next logical step.

Astrojax show you what the flow of life looks like, almost like tripping does. They illustrate your thoughts creating reality. They show your body the movement of the flow of the universe. They talk to you. They are a physical bridge between physical reality and dimensions beyond. If you’re impatient to see the connection being illustrated, skip to about 00:53 in the video above.
That’s what flow looks like. That’s what entheogens give you visual access to. That’s what stopping negative thought is all about. It’s letting life live you. Allowing the universe to bring you everything you want, because you trust it will.
When you practice feeling good every day, it’s like training your muscles to improve your ability at a sport. From my experience, the more time you spend embracing your power, the closer you get to playing in a real game. You can train without ever getting in the game, but imagine how fun it must be to play!
In life design, you practice feeling good to improve your abilities at the game. A positive vibration of feeling good is a muscle, just like your bicep. When you practice using your feeling good muscles, you get better at it. You get stronger, more powerful results.
So what are you training for, anyway? What’s the game we’re playing?
As life designers, we are helping our mass consciousness upgrade to higher levels of functioning. We are unique cogs in the wheel of this big picture, but we are also in complete creative control. We’re going through the exact motions we need to be for everything to unfold perfectly. We are bridges, just like Astrojax is a bridge. We take what we learn from various states of consciousness and tell people what we learn there. We are consciousness pioneers. Everything that has ever happened, ever, has lead up to this moment. We are literally the very edge of universal expansion.
As consciousness pioneers, we understand that there is more to life than physical reality, because we’ve been there individually. We can go there together too, as a society. Then physical reality would be much different. But we can’t level up as a whole until everyone learns the power of their thoughts. We can’t reach a new plane in consciousness unless we all evolve. We evolve by learning our power, practicing it, and becoming one with love. We evolve by finding the natural flow of life and moving with it. We evolve by having open minds and hearts.
What is so cool is that the more and more people upgrade their consciousness, the easier it is for everyone else to catch on. And this whole Internet thing is what’s making it spread like wildfire. The Internet gave us planetary consciousness. It gave us literal awareness of our whole, just like the Mass Games or a group fitness class does. The Internet passes the meme much more quickly than the printing press or oral tradition ever could.
I went to grad school and studied things like the technological singularity and the benefits of lifestreaming. That singularity thing? It’s coming up, like, today. Take a look at this calendar of events approaching, and tell me it doesn’t make your heart jump with the smallest bit of excitement.
You have always been worthy
thank you Beverly & Pack
Do you deserve vast abundance in your life? Are you worthy of receiving the wealth and security you crave? Are you ready for everything you want to shower down upon you?
Whether you think you’re worthy or not, the answers are still the same. Every single one of us is worthy of the universe’s blessings. If we are all one consciousness, of course every part of the one would have value – the same value as the whole. All of the universe. Every single one of us is worth as much as everything in the entire universe.
Abraham-Hicks explains in their new Getting into the Vortex Meditation book that once you release more and more of your resistance to feeling good,
You will stand in complete acceptance of your value, offering no resistance whatsoever to the evidence of your value. You will feel no discomfort as the blessings of abundance and Well-Being shower down around you, indicating your alignment with the worthy Being that you are. – p53
Accept that you are worthy. You are perfect and unique and you deserve the abundance the universe has to offer. You are simply an individual sensing node on a bigger whole. We are all one. And if we are all one, our value is all exactly the same – the value of the whole. You are worthy of the universe. You are worthy of anything you can dream up. You are worthy of all the time, health, love and money in the universe. Because you are the universe.
You never have to feel guilty about wanting things ever again. Know that your desires are what keep you alive. This is the last thing you will ever need to read telling you to love yourself. There, you’re enlightened.
You are now fearless
There is nothing to fear. In the next few months, things are going to get really crazy in this reality. Did you look at that forum thread yet? I just want to let y’all know that there is nothing to be afraid of, and that whatever beautiful things start unfolding in your life, just remember that you created them and you are in control. You have the power.
There is nothing to be afraid of. When you find yourself leading an incredible life because you are working with the law of attraction, not against it, remember that you wanted to go down this rabbit hole. You truly are a powerful creator and learning to master your emotions is only a step in consciousness evolution.
Once you can comprehend the idea that your thoughts create, and start living by that law, then what? That’s the evolution, what happens next. I can’t predict the future but I can promise you it is unfolding perfectly. Love is all there is.
Even if it doesn’t all make sense yet, but you know that feeling good feels good, trust that you’ll figure it out eventually. Just keep asking questions. Keep looking for the answers. They’re all right in front of you. Keep feeling better and better and you’ll gradually find more and more of them.Previous article: Self-love bootcamp: re-write your About page every day
