Spiritual Bro

Spell check for your spirit πŸ™

πŸ™ Spiritual Bro rose out of an attempt to deal directly with difficulties raised by the influence of language upon thought. Using it is not to learn to speak in a "perfect" way, but rather to learn what it means to speak imperfectly.

πŸ‘‹ Product Hunt! Brian Swichkow here. In a time of personal transition, a friend and advisor made me aware of where my language undermined my intentions. Over time, I became frustrated with the pace at which I was able to change, or release, these stories; the frames that no longer served me. In an email newsletter to friends, I shared my frustrations and playfully declared an intention to create a "spell check for your spirit." One recipient of that email was @johnzdanowski, the former CFO of Second Life and General Assembly, he matched my energy and said, "I'll fund that." At the time, I had a sticky note on my bathroom mirror that said "I am attracting the perfect partners into my life" and John had a daily mantra of "I am reinventing venture finance to accelerate humanity's transition to the next stage of consciousness." We manifested each other. Spiritual Bro began as, and continues to be, a co-creative adventure; a space for play and mutual elevation. In conversations at our gatherings, we have joyously been present for friends of resonance as they retract verbal "I'm trying to" statements and replace them with "I'm doing" or "I'm making space for". Often, this happens when they are merely aware Spirit Check exists. The extension was born in jest, when the truth of the message couldn't be fully accepted, and has since manifested moments of magic that escape the bondage of words. What we might have previously called "crazy coincidence" seems to happen more frequently every day. Spirit Check is an enlightenment experiment, a play thing, a cosmic joke. We've had a blast building it and are excited to share it. As Alan Watts said, "the Universe is a magical illusion and a fabulous game." Thanks for hunting us @sethlouey πŸ™Œ P.S. Use the code 'PHLOVE' on spiritualbro.com/community and get free forever access to our 'Little Bro' slack community where we co-create Spirit Check and support one anothers' elevation.

@ehhblinkin it's an experiment in scaling enlightenment, a tool for mental health, a play thing, a cosmic joke, an opening to meaningful conversation... it is what you want/need it to be.

I recall the amount of "buts" and "I needs" that polluted my text habits, and how this extension (+ the people behind it) helped me align positivity before all into my tone. It will spread onto your everyday and we ALL could use more positivity in our lives. Thank you for this!

πŸ™Œ @gallowrob! As Alan Watts also said, β€œYou're under no obligation to be the same person you were five minutes ago.” When we are conscious of the stories we tell, we can let go of those which no longer serve us. We made Spiritual Bro to prompt this presence πŸ™

Smart! I'm currently using Grammarly, what's your key differences or added value?

@mlleroulleau Grammarly corrects your spelling, Spiritual Bro elevates your spirit. They work well together. If you write something negative or low frequency, the spirit check gives you an elevated frame to tell the same story in a positive way.

Wow, Brian. What an excellent story of turning those emotions into something valuable to everyone. Thank you for going through the struggle so you could bring this to the rest of us in that hopes that others can either skip that experience or get out of it quickly the way you desired to. Thanks for helping us become our next best selves.

I am so happy and grateful for this reflection, @bridgette_bryant_the_bridge_! That is the energy that fuels me; and within such a beautiful encapsulation. In truth, we are each the universe talking to itself. That's something @johnzdanowski taught me as we co-created Spiritual Bro. There is no "correction" when it comes to spirit check, they are suggested elevations and each of them are co-created by the community through conversation and play (which we'd love to share with you and there's a coupon code at the bottom of my first comment). We've found that the simple act of making space for the conversation has, more than anything, made us more conscious of our language. Whether that's prompted by an app, a t-shirt, or a supporting community... we are excited to continue to facilitate :) πŸ™ Thank you for being part of the 🌊 Bridgette.
