This podcast was going to be about balance, but at the last moment I changed it, as I had another Lucid Dreaming experience I wanted to talk about, involving one of my custom characters lilSOPHIE. I really do think Lucid Dreaming and Art could be a powerful combination :)
I talk about some of the fun things I’d like to try out in dream world, like having lilSOPHIE pose away, so I can than wake up and bring her to life in a drawing. It sounds fun, but I have a feeling she’s going to make me work for it first lol
This weeks Inspirational Quote, goes to unknown

THAT MAKE LIFE BIG.”

A few days ago I had my first Lucid Dream … since than, my mind’s gone deep into the Lucid Dreaming Rabbit Hole. I’ve started asking myself: Is it possible to Manifest a Painting while Dreaming, than create it for real when you Wake up? Sounds Bonkers, but turns out there’s proof it can be done :)
