On a Game of Thrones fansite, someone posted, "Hard to believe that one man can create such a huge world with a rich complicated history." Another said, "I have no idea how he did that!" referring to Lord of The Rings.
Here's how to create such complex worlds.
A story about imagination and fantasy.
Silvia Hartmann writes: I have to come out of that mysterious Art Solutions closet and admit that for me, a poem is not a poem unless it was prepared and delivered by the energy mind.
This is a short essay on the nature of poems and poetry from the Energist's perspective.
When I was very young, I often used to see a black horse that no-one else could see.
I soon learned to stop talking about it, because that didn't do any good at all, but I still saw it; running alongside when I was being driven in a car, or out of the windows of a train, or a bus. I think it was the day I saw the horse and I was on a North Sea ferry and the horse was running with the waves that I realised that it was a spirit horse.

"Tell me a story," she said ...
One of the most important functions of poetry is to keep us reminded of the other realms, the higher realms, beyond the stress and chaos of the day. It's like going to church but you don't have to get dressed up and sit around uncomfortably for hours on end - with a simple poem, you can get there whenever you want, or need to ...
... be reminded ...
Dream on ...
Silvia Hartmann's sunrise "poem" Morning Light.
In 2007, an aspect of mine wrote a special HypnoDreams album - one that was not for other people, or for sale, but only for me. Based on the "voices in the night," it was absolutely designed to be a gift for a future self who might need to hear these words, to calm her and inspire her, help her through the night. And it has, on many, many occasions and remains one of my favourite "poem collections" to date ... Full texts of all the "poems" and the song on this poetry album.
Recently recovered, here is the original Genius Symbols poem/spell/dedication which was created of course, using the Genius Symbols in the order and sequence they appeared on the day.
Way back in the day, 1996, when the Internet was young, I joined a poetry forum. With my welcome message from the moderator, I was directed to a list of words which one must never use in a poem.
Oh really ... ;->
Forbidden words in poetry ...?
Silvia Hartmann writes: I am best known for personal development research, so the question is often asked, "Why do you waste your time with Fantasy Fiction novels? Why bother? Why not write some more How To's that's what you're good at, that's what makes the money ..."
The answer is simple. Without such things as In Serein, there would be no EMO, no Energy Magic, no HypnoDreams, no Genius Symbols and there would be no Events Psychology.
How is it possible that writing a "fantasy" novel ends up creating advanced personal development techniques?
For the tenth anniversary of The In Serein Trilogy we have a brand new website to read my favourite Fantasy Fiction novel online - all three books complete, Book 1, Sorcerer & Apprentice, Book 2, The Cage and Book 3, The End of Dreams. Check it out!
This collection of poetry contains some of my personal favourite poems of all times - Steel Lord obviously, my ode to Lord Lucian; but there are also some other poems that I've always particularly loved, such as Mission, The Alien Hunter, and Unicorn Union which gives the collection its title.
One day I'll find an open mike poetry night somewhere and read Unicorn Union out aloud ...
Whilst transferring an old static website, this collection of poetry exercises called Sanctuary Poems dated March 2000 was found in a sub folder.
These poetry exercises use imagery of environments (Project Sanctuary habitats) to create a metasong flow. But apart from that, they're cool and even the html is a poetic blast from the past.
Enjoy The Sanctuary Poems.
This is a very rare little book of poetry - Fairy Tales by Silvia Hartmann, May 1994. Only 24 copies were printed in the first place, and this is the last known battered survivor.

Enjoy.
There's so many things you can do with the Genius Symbols - creative story telling is of course amongst them, and this can have many uses. A recent example is a story for terminally ill children, to inspire them and support them, created with the Classic Game by a student on the Genius Symbol course. Read the story, what the children thought to it and find out the contract that was used.

I believe there is a lot we can learn from each other at any time, but especially sharing the Soul Pilot story is an important part of the process of learning more about the other worlds.
Each story has insights and important information to transmit, and the experiences of other Soul Pilots are invaluable. Lots can be learned about how to do it, how not to do it, and of course, these are stories which we would never encounter ourselves because we each have our own specific resonance.
Here are some tips for writing up the Soul Pilot story so that others can share in the experience.
A magic wedding poem, that doubles as a magic love spell.
Two Dragons is the perfect poem for a pagan wedding ceremony such as handfasting.
An inspirational poem and a childhood memory, a lesson in life, a truth about life - we are not as helpless as we think ... sometimes ...
Whilst working on a catalogue of paintings, in which I have added as a detail if there is a poem or a story to go with the painting, I came across the German poem Zaubervogel.
I was going to add it to the catalogue as was, but then decided to translate the German poem into English. As I'm the author, and therefore know "what I was trying to say" (!) this was easy and interesting too.
Here is the original German poem Der Zaubervogel and my translation, the Magic Bird. Oh, and the painting. Of course ... :-)
Inspirational poem, rhyming poem - it came about quite spontaneously whilst writing the 1,000th post to the VIP forum today, April 15th, 2010.
