Interview With Author Corey Lewis


The Art of Becoming

1. What inspired you to write your book?
I was going through a dark time in my life: after being divorced, my brother died of cancer, my best friend died of an oxycontin overdose, and I my work as a tenured professor was killing me. I knew that I needed to heal, and that I had important things to give the world, and to do, but I didn't know what or how. I decided that the only person who could teach me how to be me, how to Become who I dreamed of Being, was my future self. So, I created a process of dropping down into Alpha brain wave levels through meditation and Quantum Leaping 20 years into the future to learn from my future self.

2. What is it about?
In the book I use the Silva Meditation Method to achieve Alpha brain wave levels and Quantum Leap 20 years into the future to learn from my future self. Through a series of conversations, and leaps through time into my past, present and future, he teaches me how to heal and be who I've always dreamed of Becoming. Through these conversations readers learn techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis, Biofeedback and more, along with me as I learn them and apply them to my life. Readers learn how to clear negative feelings and past trauma, how to improve their performance in every area of life, reduce stress, speed healing, improve memory and more. The book is both a story and a guide to living the life of your wildest dreams.

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book?
What I want for my readers is to have the wonderful experience of living the life of their dreams and saying "Wow, The Art of Becoming has powerfully transformed my life. Now, I want to share it with others and help them Be, Do and Have everything they have ever dreamed of." And to carry with them the recognition that all creation begins with thought, and that if you can conceive it, you can believe it, and if you can believe it, you can achieve it!

4. What advice do you have for writers?
Write every day. Pick a time and create a regular practice of writing. And stick to it. Write what you know and love and are passionate about, and read the authors you want to emulate. When you sit down to write, deep breath and reconnect to your last writing session and the vibrational frequency of your work so that you are in the flow before you start writing. When you finish a writing session, leave the last sentence unfinished, and write down a few thoughts about what you were going to write next, then re-read these at the start of your next writing session. Get a writing partner or group to keep you accountable, give yourself due dates, and plan "writing stay-cations" to get your work done. Attach your deepest pleasure and purpose to your writing, the process of doing it, and the experience of having it done and seeing it in the world. And then, put it out there in the world and let it go!

5. Where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?
It has changed a lot since the advent of ebooks and self publishing. Still the primary obstacle you have to overcome is marketing, getting the word out about your book. I believe we will see an increase in self-publishing, ebook sales, and audio book sales, and we will continue to see that it is easier and easier for authors to publish, but it remains difficult, or takes resources, to market those books and let the targeted demographic of readers know it exists.

6. What challenges did you have in writing your book?
I was living the story the book tells as I wrote it. I would meditate and Quantum Leap to Corey, have our conversations and learn what I needed to, then come out of meditation and write that portion of the book. Because I had to live and experience each part of the book before it could be written it took me quite some time to draft and finish the entire manuscript.

7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
You should buy The Art of Becoming because it will show you how to live the life of your wildest dreams on a daily basis, how to consistently think, feel and act better than you have ever before, and how to Be Now who you have always known you were meant to become.
