WHO IS THE LIGHTWRITER PROGRAM FOR?
The LIGHTWRITER program is for you if:
You’re called to share your past, but still want to feel good in the present.
You want to understand how to share your past, but not get lost in it.
You’re a natural narrator – always observing and looking for meaning in life’s experiences.
You feel overwhelmed by the bad news in the world and want to make a positive impact.
You find yourself downplaying your happiness, because you don’t trust it (or trust other people to accept it).
When you do share your story, it feels like a breath of fresh air.
Hearing the word LIGHTWRITER awakens a little spark inside you.
You want to be part of something bigger than yourself.
6 week's of mentoring sessions themed to a different topic
WEEK ONE: IDENTITY
WEEK TWO: POSITIVITY
You're here! Now, let's call your inner Lightworker into action.
We’re all a slave to a negative bias — especially as natural-born narrators.
A powerful introduction into the work of a Lightwriter and why you're here. You’ll also learn how to:
Recognise the barriers holding you back from sharing your story.
How shame/guilt can stop up showing up.
Why the toughest times of our lives really do create the most impactful content.
...BUT you don't have to go into a dark place to share them.

How your upbringing and conditioning can impact the lens we put on our story.
How to go from Fearmonger to Lightwriter, in your words and your inner voice!

Move from ‘outside in energy to ‘inside out’ energy — a mindfulness term, which will transform your purpose.

Trust the happy endings in your life — and find the courage to share them.

We're calling it! Writing from The Source is a magical experience!

How you can make your writing a more sacred practise.
Check in with the source of your memories — are you writing from your past or even from a past life experience?
Get tools, strategies and best practises to write in flow
Learn to ask yourself: Is this a real fear or just an old story?
WEEK FOUR: AKASHIC RECORD READING
Tapping into lifetimes of wisdom and trusting your inner knowing.
A very special week in the mentoring program, you have the opportunity to learn about your Akashic Records — the energetic record of everything you’ve seen, felt and experienced in this life and past lives (read more here). You’ll also learn:
What the Akashic Records are and how your experiences, stored in ‘the Akasha’, can give you clarity in your life (and your writing).
How the Akashic Records show us potential outcomes.
What can you ask the Records?
How to use the Records in your own writing practice?
+ Amy will open the Records for you — hear them opened in real time!
WEEK FIVE: INTEGRATION
A chance to discuss the previous week's content and discuss your learnings.
To allow the previous week’s content to integrate and sink in, this weeks mentoring session is not live. Instead, you'll be sent a pre-recorded video you can watch in your own time, which includes a 'sacred writing ritual' for you to follow. You will be provided with:
A ‘courage to share’ playlist to listen to over the week.
Writing prompts to practise your intuitive writing.
Ongoing private message support if you need a pep talk.

Frequently asked Questions
What if I’ve already done The Book Writing Remedy course? No problem! This program is designed as a perfect accompaniment — helping you to feel lighter and brighter as you write about tough experiences.
Does it have to run over 6 consecutive weeks? Yes, ideally but we can stretch it out longer if you need to.
Will it work for writing a podcast? Absolutely! I work with a huge range of content creators, from podcasters to course-makers and social media influencers.
Will you teach me how to write a book? Not the structural stuff! For that, I recommend my other course, The Book Writing Remedy.
Do I need to be ‘spiritual’? Not at all! Sure, we covered ‘spiritual topics’ but it’s really about connect to your own intuition — however that feels for you.
Can I call myself a LIGHTWRITER afterwards? Yep, you’ll be a proud member of our Lightwriter alumni! Add it to your Instagram bio!
What's the price? It's AUD$659 for the whole 6 weeks (a huge saving on the usual cost of my single mentoring sessions).
Do you offer a payment plan? Not for this one, sorry, it's a software-provider thing! I do offer a payment program for The Book Writing Remedy.
How much access will I get to you? A whole lot! Every session is just you and I, plus private message support (within business hours) if you need it.
What is an Akashic Records Reading? Great question! Read a bit more background here.
Do I need to be in Australia? Not at all, as long as you can make our session works for you time-zone.
Can I sign up anytime? Yes, there's no need to wait. Every now and again, I will close my books if I have too many LIGHTWRITERS at once, so if we're open, jump on!
Can you edit my writing? As with my other program, you can sign up to my editing service afterwards — I love to read your words!
How is this different to your other course? My online course, The Book Writing Remedy, is much more structural — the how to write a book, from chapter breakdowns to pitching to publishers. This is an emotional, holistic (dare I say, spiritual) experience. Sure, we’ll talk about the practicalities of getting your writing out there, but it’s also about putting a positive lens on your experiences; how you can share your story without getting lost in tough memories. And, of course, this course in LIVE instead of pre-recorded, so great if you want a really intimate experience (and want to chat directly!).
What happens after I sign up? When you sign up, you can choose when your plan begins and immediately book your first session. You'll then be emailed details of how to book the other live sessions in the program.
I’ve got another question! Feel free to send me an email email@example.com. Happy to chat it through.
