“When I’m awake, I’m pulling these concepts together into compositions for my artwork. I try to imbue each piece with beneficial symbols and themes of abundance, oneness, balance, infiniteness and unity… Working large-scale helps with my wakefulness and drawing is the one thing I can do while experiencing my waking REM episodes.”
Having Narcolepsy means that I have excessive and incessant REM cycles throughout a 24 hour period, both during sleep and awake time. It makes my dreaming very vivid and it feels like I have a 2nd life in dreams. When I started meditating, the first thing I noticed was that it cleared all the clutter out of my dreams. All of a sudden I was getting very clear messages from the dream-world and I started putting these themes of higher consciousness into my artwork. The dreams were of a much higher vibrational frequency than my everyday thoughts in waking life.
