Something that’s always bothered me, is Why are some people born Transgender? I came up with a theory this morning after a False Awakening, which is where you have a dream that you wake up from a dream and get out of bed, only to realise that you’re actually still dreaming; a Dream within a Dream.
It only lasted a few seconds, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it all morning and it made me wonder, What if we’re inside of a Dream right now, What if we each have a Creator whose fast asleep in their own lil bed dreaming us into existence as we speak lol… and What if that’s got something to do with our Gender, and Why some people are born Transgender.
So this weeks podcast is all about a Theory I have of how Lucid Dreaming and Gender may be Linked. I also talk about another Lucid Dream I had last week, and also these weird worm hole vivid visual things that I have no clue what they are, but they fascinate me so much.
lil ART TIP TIME
ALWAYS TRY NEW THINGS … or tings :)
With Inktober starting tomorrow, I’ve been playing around with some new Art Tools, and it made me realise. It’s really important to try new tings, because iwhen you do, that’s when you have the most fun, because you don’t know what you’re doing lol so you can just Play and Experiment :)
Hope you like this one. If you have any tips or questions about Lucid Dreaming and those Vivid Wormhole things, this weeks lil Art Tip, or if you have any questions/topics you’d like discussed in future episodes, please get in touch. You can message me down the bottom of this page, by leaving a comment on YouTube, or by SENDING AN EMAIL

‘What are you currently Struggling with?’, is this weeks random topic … and it ends up being an episode about the Struggles of trying to Curate and Focus an Instagram feed: How do you decide what to focus on, when multiple Passions seem right? Do you even need to curate an Instagram Feed? Why is Focus so bleeding hard? lol This one’s a bit like being a pinball bouncing around inside my brain as I try to work out what to do. Hope you like this one :)
This lil ones about the Lucid Dreaming Practice, some of the tings I’ve found helpful in becoming Lucid, and also, the struggles of dedicating to the Lucid Dreaming Practice, while still Producing and Studying Art. The Book Book is Journeys Out Of The Body, by Robert Monroe, the lil Art Tip is about the importance of Drawing What You Love and the Fascinating Fact is the Amount of Time we Spend Dreaming in a Lifetime. Hope you enjoy this one :)
Get outside with Nature, the voice in my head kept saying, so I did, and I took lil Dennis with me to record this podcast while walking through the woods of Saltrum, before doing a spot of Sunbathing :) It ends up being a discussion about Doing Too Much Stuff, how Nature helps in Finding Balance, and there’s a lot about Facing Fears. I tell a story about these pink sunglasses I started wearing in 2015 that changed my life, by helping me overcome some of my biggest fears. Fear seems to be the recurring topic this week, because I also tell how I went Wild Camping last weekend, and ended up walking 12 miles through the creepy woods in the dead of night. I also reveal how You Can Win some Art Books, woohoo. This is a bit of a different podcast than usual, but I hope you have fun with it :)
This lil one’s all about finding Focus and Balance by Waking Up Early, something I’ve just started doing, and so far, so good … it almost feels like I’ve magically created extra hours in the day :) I also talk about a couple Lucid Dreams and the lil art tip of the week is to do with pencil cases :)
On this episode I talk about Self Doubt, and how I’m starting to realise, with the help of Lucid Dreaming and Automatic Writing, that Self Doubt is a fear that shouldn’t be something to run away from, but instead embraced, with the Loving arms of Action.
‘ Read one of your Diary Entries – Experiences ‘ was this weeks lil topic, and it ends up being a pretty Deep conversation about the Power of Affirmations. I talk about going to Art Class as me for the first time, how all Beliefs are both True and Lies at the same time, and a recent Negative Mental Relapse which strangely fits into the episode nicely, in order to highlight just how Important and Powerful Daily Affirmations are in helping you to Face Your Fears … there’s even a bit about the Cats of June Art Challenge too. Hope you enjoy this ‘I need a Drink’ episode :)
This was a weird one! I was trying to record a different episode talking about some of my Inspirational People, but it was taking so long I thought … let’s make this weeks topic about how stuff takes longer than you think :) Turns out there’s a name for it too, it’s called Hofstadter’s Law. Hope you enjoy this lil one :)
On this episode I dive into the topic of Spirituality … Automatic Writing is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with, what I like to call, the Universe. It’s life changing stuff, because in just two weeks I’ve managed to go from being scared of transitioning at the day job, to not only throwing away all my male clothes and being my true self at work, but also wearing a little swimsuit in public, and facing the fear of learning how to swim … I’m beginning to see a deep connection between Art and Spirituality.
It’s that time of year again … when the sun comes out to play, so do the drawing pencils :) It’s time to start sketching people in public, something I was terrified to do at first, but it’s one of the most fun ways to improve, and loosen up, both your drawing, and the mind :)
In this weeks lil episode, I ask the question, Are Videogames Bad For You? You can replace Videogames with any hobby really, as I think it all comes down to finding balance and your beliefs. There’s also the lil Art Tip, which is about Taking Your Time when Drawing Realistic Hair, and there’s a slice of Lucid Dreaming talk too: False Awakenings and how Lucid Dreaming is improving my Waking Life. Hope you like it :)
