Where do you go when you are dreaming, in an altered state, meditating, using your imagination, or after you die? Many say it is the Astral Plane, one of 7 spheres of existence that make up our known Universe. It overlaps with the Physical (or densest ) of the Planes and is only separated by a slight difference in energetic vibration. It is the Plane of emotions, creativity, and possibilities, where matter is malleable and easily shaped by our thoughts. The Astral Man is You, the dreamer, the explorer of imagination and integration, the etheric subconscious which is free to try and test limitless ideas, possibilities, and resolutions to physical concerns without consequence. The Astral Plane, respectively, is your playground.

Creativity means nearly everything to me. I believe, in the simplest terms, that we are HERE to create. I think the intention of the Universe itself is to expand and explore all possibilities, and that each soul contributes with the freedom they innately possess to choose how to learn and learn how to choose. There is no end to discovering, creating, and learning. I think it is necessary to each person's evolution to eventually recognize what that truly means. That meaning is not created FOR us, but BY us. We are all creators of the Universe. There is no separation.
I love art because it is a medium for expression that can better communicate what the artist is thinking or feeling, that sometimes can be difficult to express in words. I'm kind of a "scatterbrain," and can have a hard time formulating my thoughts into words. Painting my ideas seems to be better received by others when all else fails:)
