The Art of Becoming by Corey Lee Lewis

The Art of Becoming

Quantum Leaping Into Your Future Self
Email this review


A life coach discusses his own astral projections and suggests tips for positive thinking in this self-help guide.

Lewis was struggling through a trifecta of losses—his wife left him and his best friend and his brother had just died—when he tapped into a “quantum leaping forward into [his] own future on this plane of existence in order to meet and learn from [his] future self through meditation.” He describes his astral projection meetings with his older self, which allowed him to glimpse and thus chart a more positive outlook and future. He suggests readers “expand don’t contract.” Through this approach, Lewis says that he was able to envision and then find a new, enduring love relationship as well as the courage to leave a secure career as a professor to become a full-time life coach. His travels with “Corey” included his dropping back into his Kansas childhood home and returning to the achievement-focused mindset of the martial arts training of his youth. While listing these experiences, Lewis also delves into the laws of attraction, the power of intention, and the positive thinking/energy philosophies espoused by the Silva Method and Neuro-linguistic Programming. He includes an appendix of tools, techniques, and resources. Lewis (Remember Mark Selbee,2014, etc.) takes readers through his unusual personal history as part of this sincere and encouraging mind/body guide. His encounters with “Corey” certainly dramatize his concepts, although some anecdotes and comments (he “would often viscerally feel the car floating” while driving) might prove too outlandish for some. Still, Lewis, for the most part, keeps his overall discussion surprisingly well-grounded and uses nicely summarizing chapter headings (“The Muscles of the Mind,” “You Are Living Out A Story,” etc.).

Fascinating if slightly far-out personal saga anchored by helpful self-development strategies and concepts.
