INFLUENCE: the life-altering course on mastering practical magic

Want to wield far more influence with your magic?

Maybe you’ve experienced the following…

  • You’ve been interested in magic for years, you know in your heart it’s real, but you’ve never found a practice that makes total sense and just plain works to get you the kind of amazing results you want.

  • You’ve read all the Law of Attraction stuff, and visualizing positive outcomes has worked for you on occasion, but you could just never totally get down with the weird attitude of denial that LoA teachers espouse, plus no one ever explains why it just flat-out fails sometimes.

  • You’ve experienced many stunning synchronicities in your life and times when everything seemed to “just flow” so beautifully, and you wish someone would just show you a step-by-step, repeatable means of harnessing this power and putting it to work perpetually.

I created INFLUENCE: the life-altering course on mastering practical magic to teach people how to do exactly this - to confidently generate stunning results in their lives...

INFLUENCE not only radically changes your life for the better, it also looks good in coffee shops.

INFLUENCE not only radically changes your life for the better, it also looks good in coffee shops.

“After INFLUENCE, literally everything in my life is better. I’m healthier. I’ve lost weight. I’m spending more time with friends and family. I’m doing more of the things I love. Everything I disliked about my life has started shifting, some of it rapidly, and some of it more slowly. INFLUENCE is life changing!”
— Elizabeth Hamister Burnett
“Since I began working with Carolyn Elliott everything has changed for me. I’m in a better position emotionally, financially, and creatively than I have ever been.

”Carolyn Elliot takes no prisoners, and I love it. More than any other teacher of magic out there, she’s able to articulate complex ideas in a way that’s easy to understand but doesn’t pander to the lowest common denominator.

”She’s brilliant, ballsy, hilarious and encourages her students to reach far beyond whatever they thought they were capable of.

”I would recommend this course to anyone who feels stuck and is ready to drop all the bullshit in their lives and just start doing the thing they want to do, be it spiritually, emotionally, financially or all of the above. If you’re ready for greatness, take this class!”
— Amanda Yates Garcia, the Oracle of Los Angeles
“After first working with Carolyn in INFLUENCE, I immediately got a job paying over 50% more; after several rounds of the class I became successfully self-employed, bought a house, and got married. I now feel that I am allowed to have the things that I want so that I can give back to others freely. The momentum in life now is startling - it’s rich and full, humbling and satisfying. I can’t wait to see what’s next!”
— Miriam Jones
“My mind has been opened to a whole new way of existence. I did not realize how encompassing this course would be for me spiritually and emotionally.”
— Jody Beth
“Before INFLUENCE, I was broke, unable to finish my degree, and in a relationship that was going nowhere. Now I have my degree, a job that pays what I witched for, and I ended the “going nowhere” relationship!”
— Eva Arnazsuz
“Best personal/spiritual educational experience I’ve had. Thank you for that!! I have gained tools and perspective that I don’t believe I would have discovered elsewhere, or through my own studies.”
— Sarah Fjelstad
“I can’t believe how much my financial situation turned around thanks to my work in this course. After years of renting I am actually looking at buying a place! I was working on clearing personal issues but INFLUENCE works so well you get all kinds of positive synergies.”
— Angela Chouinard

There’s a shocking, simple truth most people don’t know about what it takes to do magic that reliably gets real results, like doubling your income or busting an old negative pattern to make room for new love.

The truth is that for magic to work effectively, we need to first do shadow integration work in order to clear the space in our souls to make room for receiving new bounty and wonder.

Shadow integration as taught by its pioneer, Carl Jung, however, took decades. And who can wait that long to be whole? Certainly not me.

So using what I learned in my doctoral work in Critical and Cultural studies at the University of Pittsburgh (yes, I have a PhD, I’m technically “Dr. Carolyn Elliott”), I developed a cutting-edge, rapid method of shadow integration work, and through INFLUENCE I’ve taught it to over a thousand people who are ecstatic about the ensuing dramatic positive changes in their lives.

(Scroll down to see all the testimonials below!)

Imagine for a moment what it would feel like to know how to create massive positive synchronicity in any area of your life - money, love, creativity, health ?

How would it change how you feel about yourself and the world if you never felt at the mercy of cruel fate again…

… but instead knew exactly what to do to turn the tide of fortune in your favor, without having to accept koo-koo dogmatic metaphysics or some hoary old guy’s ideas about what it takes to be “a real magician”?

Course Details

INFLUENCE is a 6-month long intensive and life-changing course, with 12 in-depth Lessons (in both audio and text PDF form) sent out every two weeks.

When you sign up for INFLUENCE, you get immediate access to the lively, smart, and supportive INFLUENCE online community….

… and you also immediately receive the course Overview and Lesson 1.

After that, you have one Lesson delivered to your inbox every two weeks (i.e., 14 days after you received the last Lesson, you will receive a new one.)

Receiving just one Lesson every two weeks gives you time to absorb, integrate, and implement the Lesson.

We deliver the course this way rather than making all Lessons available at once…

… because over the years we’ve found that the most successful INFLUENCE students take time to practice the simple Assignments in the Lessons, rather than just rushing forward.

In the INFLUENCE community, we highly value practice and personal experience over theoretical knowledge. Magic takes implementation and effort.

“Since taking INFLUENCE, I’ve finally gotten a solid hold on the reins of my life. I’m taking large steps on my career path, casting off my unnecessary burdens, and I’m in the process of buying my first home. I’ve massively improved my financial situation, almost doubling my monthly income and building up my credit significantly. “
— Jerianne Fulton
“The shadow work in INFLUENCE allowed me to remove the blocks that prevented my magical work from manifesting (or from getting results that stick). That’s something I hadn’t found in any other course before.”
— Scarlet Grace
“This is the single most beneficial course I’ve ever taken.”
— Janet Jeffus
“With INFLUENCE, so much of my ‘trauma’ and fear crap have I been able to look at, understand and let go. It has been incredible and continues to remain so.”
— Becky Graywolf
“I feel like INFLUENCE has upped my sense of personal power, agency, and equanimity. I feel I have more control over what happens in my life, and when things go sideways, I’m not so easily rattled. “
— Susan Snyder
“Carolyn’s teaching style is for those who commit and are all in. She doesn’t sugar coat shit; she gives it to you full on. And IT. FUCKING. WORKS.”
— Bara Cerna
“I had a strong suspicion that this class would pay for itself many times over, and it did. As I tangoed with my shadow and unraveled my own innermost mysteries, my power grew.

”I got my dream house during this course, and my husband found a brand new iMac in a dumpster.

”With INFLUENCE, I found whatever I poured energy and thought into came alive; things were magnetized to me as my glowing, red-hot heart activated with persuasively electric power.

”I’m still learning, and I can’t wait to see what else will happen as I continue this journey- the things I learned in INFLUENCE were not rehashed material, but new, real-life Mysteries the likes of which I had been searching for in tomes and dusty corners of the interwebs for years.

”I sighed with relief at the truths contained within the very first lesson: finally, this is what has been teeming and writhing just below the surface.”
— Jamie Lynn Hales

Answers to Common Questions about INFLUENCE

Q. I've studied Wicca and Neo-Pagan stuff before. Is this just going to be a rehash of that?

A. Not at all. The kind of magic I do and teach has a lot more in common with Tibetan tantric Buddhism and American folk magic than it does with Wicca. This ain't your nice auntie's witchcraft. This is some hardcore, existentially intense witchery.

Absolutely no one at any point will tell you "Blessed be."


Q. I want to take this course but I’m very busy. How much time does it take?

A. There's no way for me to erase or sugar-coat the truth that intensive magical transformation takes daily effort. Here's a rough break down of what kind of time investment you could expect INFLUENCE to involve:

Once every two weeks: About an hour spent reading or listening to the Lesson.

Every day: About 30 minutes invested in daily practices (details given in the course).

Whenever you feel like it: About 30 minutes spent reading and writing posts and comments in our private online community.

That's not a giant time commitment to revolutionize your whole existence and sense of your own magical power.


Q. I love the idea of the course but money is tight right now and I don't know if it's wise for me to spend money on a class on magic. What should I do?

A. I understand totally. I lived below the poverty level for the first decade of my adult life. So I don't like to ask anyone to invest in any course with me unless I'm certain that if they do the work, they will experience a return of at least 20 times what they invested.

Based on the results that participants in the first nine rounds of INFLUENCE experienced, I can say that I am fully confident that if you do the work of this class you will get back more than 20 times what you put into it, financially and emotionally and spiritually.

You'll be amazed the kind of results you're able to create in your life when you know how to liberate the energy that's currently put into repressing your shadow.

Q. I'm not sure the course is for me but I want to try it. Is there a refund policy? 

A. I don't offer refunds. When you sign up for this course, you’re committing to pay the full amount ($495) over 5 payments. If you don't  yet trust me as a teacher or trust yourself to learn from me, read more of my essays which are freely available on WITCH (there's dozens of them), listen to the Grit & Grace podcast recordings I did with my husband Taia at gritandgrace.today, or order my book, Awaken Your Genius on Amazon. See if your trust grows. 

Only sign up for INFLUENCE if you are fully committed to doing the work of the class, and you trust me to teach you this material. 

I want participants in this course who are totally invested in and ready for their profound magical development. 

Q. What’s the atmosphere in the INFLUENCE group like?

A. It's lively, provocative, smart, and very fun. Some participants have made deep friendship connections in the group.

Note: I welcome diverse ideas and experiences discussed in the group and I maintain a standard of everyone expressing themselves with lots of respect and generosity towards everyone else - including me and my assistant, Karolina Boldt.

Without batting an eyelash or giving an explanation, I will immediately remove anyone from the group who disrupts that atmosphere of respect and generosity.

I don't refund people whom I have to remove from the group for being disrespectful or unkind to me or to others - so if that's your style of online communication, please also refrain from registering for the course.

An INFLUENCE origin story: The Witch Hunt

The Witch Hunt

In the Summer of 2013, I experienced a real-life witch hunt. By which I mean: lots of people in my local community wanted to burn my reputation at the stake because they didn't like the way I did my magic.

It all started on the night of the Summer Solstice, when I was in rare form.

Wearing only a fluffy white fur jacket, electric blue miniskirt and some leather cowboy boots, I stood up in front of hundreds of people in my local magical community and led a large-scale ritual to re-balance the masculine and feminine energies in the world. 

The midnight ritual, on a torch-lit plateau over-looking my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, featured a dance between 6 pairs of men and women, which culminated with the women sitting astride the prone men. 

By all accounts, all the pairs I had recruited for the dance enjoyed the ritual immensely - and the crowd did, too.

I literally luxuriated in the afterglow the rest of the night.

I lay on a cozy blanket under the summer moonlight, feeling grateful for the opportunity to do such satisfying public ritual work. 

I was flat-broke and living well below the poverty level, miserable in my romantic life, unhappy with my body most days....

....but at least I could work hard and organize and promote a gorgeous Summer Solstice party and ritual and feel the love of my grateful community flow back to me. 

My life was at frustratingly stuck low point, but at least I had my ambitious magic and my community.

So imagine my horror and pain one afternoon when I logged onto Facebook, and saw that on the event page for the ritual...

....only to find that another prominent leader in the local magical  community, a man I respected, who had once been a friend and colleague of mine - we'll call him John -  was accusing me of having led a "misandrist male rape ritual" the night before. 

John also mentioned that I was a scheming, untrustworthy bitch with self-serving intentions -  and plenty of folks - folks I had invited to parties and events and rituals and socialized with for years -  were agreeing with him. 

I responded with a defense of myself and called on other friends to help defend my reputation and good character.

Before I knew it, the thread where John stated his displeasure with me had over 2000 comments in response to it.  

The whole community who had attended the ritual and also people from the other side of the planet got involved. It was an all-out virtual battle on that Facebook event wall that lasted 3 days.

Finally, worn down after 3 days of arguing and being insulted and insulting right back, I typed on the mammoth thread:

"John - hey. Look, this is weird but actually I love you. I understand that you feel like I've wronged you and a lot of other people. Could you just tell me what you want from me now?"

And his answer was a giant jolt to my system. 

It went something like this:

"I love you too. And I think you're very, very powerful. I just want to see you admit that you have a real dark side.

I want you to stop acting like you're Little Miss Love'n'Light. You're a dangerous, Machiavellian political strategist, and you're brilliant and I respect you, but your disingenuousness is nauseating. I want you to stop lying about who and what you are."

Here's what gave me such a jolt about that:

He was absolutely right.  

It took me some time to fully understand how right he was.

But immediately I felt a giant, resounding feeling of "truth" in my body when I read his words.

I was indeed a fluffy, two-faced, fake-nice "inspirational leader."

I wasn't owning my real hungers or abilities at all.

The Humbling Problem and the More Humbling Solution

I finally began to understand what my problem was, the problem that had been holding me back in all areas of my life: I was terrified and ashamed of my own deep, dark desires for power, for wealth, for influence.

I thought I couldn't be loved or welcome anywhere unless I was "sweet." I thought I had to be "a light-worker."

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. 

Today I accept that I'm a fierce bad bitch witch - and in John's words - "a dangerous, Machiavellian political strategist" among some other rather dark things.

In my acceptance of that I am much more happy and more free.

And other people are so, so much more safe around me than they were when I was pretending to be Lil Miss Love'n'Light.

To get to this place, I had an epiphany.

I realized I needed to dive deep into learning to do exactly what I now am privileged to teach in INFLUENCE: profound shadow integration, the key to all effective practical magic. 

So I'm very grateful to John. Because of his calling me out (however rudely), I'm more capable and skilled and joyful now than ever before.

Of course, John should have just written an email to me about his discomfort with my modus operandi instead of concocting his whole nutty public "male rape" accusation and enrolling dozens of people in witch hunting me - but us magic folk tend to be rather over-dramatic, and I guess he reads too many Men's Right's blogs. 

Then again, the public witch hunt might have been exactly what I need to really get my attention. 

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. 

My First Try at Shadow Integration

Having realized through that dramatic intervention that I needed to own my dark side, I began looking for wisdom about shadow integration.

So of course I turned to Carl Jung, the ground-breaking Swiss psychologist who first offered up the idea of shadow integration.

Jung's work is rich on descriptions of the shadow, but he doesn't offer much in the way of "how-to."

But I did glean from him the idea that the shadow (and also, according to Jung, the anima / animus), is the part of the soul that we don't consciously identify with. 

So I figured that shadow integration would involve consciously identifying with and rooting for these hidden, disowned parts of me.

So bit by bit, slowly, gropingly, I began to experiment with strange ways to do exactly that. 

And guess what?

They worked!

I began to experience a giant liberation of my energy from my old boring patterns and notions about who I was, and that liberated energy was now free to create positive, real results in my life.

So these are the occult processes that now form the backbone of what I teach in INFLUENCE.

The One Real Conspiracy

As I go deeper and deeper into my magical practice and shadow integration, I realize at a more profound level this truth:

It wasn't my fault that I was disconnected from my magic, and afraid to be the masterful being I really am.

And likewise, it's not your fault, or the fault of anyone else that we have so little idea how to inhabit our huge, in-born magical power and end up stuck in frustrating, yucky patterns.

It's not our fault because the world has been burdened with a huge suppression and shaming of the feminine for over 3000 years now.

And when I say "the feminine" I mean that dimension of every human being, of every phenomenon, and in all of nature, that is essentially dark, chthonic, fertile, chaotic, ungraspable. 

[Ironic aside: The fateful night of that Summer Solstice, I orchestrated a giant ritual to balance the masculine and the feminine in the world, and I ended up learning to encounter and embrace the deep feminine (the shadow, the dark, the chthonic) in myself (I am a microcosm of the world) thanks to an dude accusing me of male rape and misandry. Hilarious! Magic works in mysterious ways!]

So please don't be hard on yourself if you've struggled to connect with and wield your real power - because there's a massive, ingrained, world-wide shaming of the feminine that has conspired to cripple us magically.

Our common enemy is shame in all its guises.

Fear might be the mind-killer, but shame is the magic-killer. 

I've learned how to remove giant layers of shame in order to liberate my magical energy, and then how to use old-fashioned spells and rituals to channel and focus that energy to experience real, tangible positive results in my life. 

And I've found this to be true not only in my life, but in the lives of hundreds of people around the world whom I've had the privilege to teach.

Just check out the testimonials above and below to see what I mean. 

Once I realized the truth about what was blocking me from my power, the practical results of my spell work came fast.

One small example:

I was living in poverty in 2013 and for the majority of my life. But when doing my taxes at the end of 2017, I realized I had made $300,000.  It was a weird, wonderful realization to feel how far I’d come, and my income continues to improve.

Now that success obviously had to do with some mundane hustling that I did -- but I know in my heart that it also had a giant amount to do with shedding the burdens of shame and aversion that I figured out how to release in my integration work. 

I also learned there were hidden, surprise benefits to learning how to do this intense process of integration:

My spirit allies (the deities and ancestors I work with) now respond much faster to my requests and spells.

I fell in love with my physicality and started to enjoy my body in a way I never had before.

I experienced my self-doubt falling away and my whole conception of myself changing for the better.

My life gained a gigantic sense of purpose as I began to see how liberation was really possible and how I could help others attain it.

I created INFLUENCE to share the wealth of freedom and power that's come to me.

So I want to invite you to go ahead, pay for the course, and save your spot.

I do suggest that you make the decision to commit quickly though, because otherwise you’ll lose the chance to save $495 and get INFLUENCE for half the usual price.
