Being a Successful Artist
December 23, 2019
My name is Harvey Dale. I'm turning 23 in January. I've been introduced to your art since 19. It has opened up my world and aided my process of awakening. I've been in and out of my awakening for 4 years now. This year has been really strong because I'm finally seeing the ways which I have been resisting my awakening. I feel like my third eye has been activated. I'm getting lots of downloads of consciousness shifting visions. Some of them are similar to your work. There was a feeling in me which communicated that this was going to change others' lives when they looked at it, or that it will hit their subconscious in a way that will make them conscious of that particular subject. Anyways, I am very familiar with your visionary art movement. It's on my bucket list to go to Entheon one day soon. I think it's the most amazing thing in the world. I have a deep feeling in my heart that I was born to do similar works to you in my own creative way. I feel like I have the same mission as you do. This is why I am typing this email, I would love to be able to receive some guidance regarding how to make the most out of this path. How to become the best at what I do. How to turn this into a career and how to find my soul tribe with the same mission so I can join forces with and create a new world. The universe works in miraculous ways :)

Your biggest fan forever.
