What I love about this painting is how much it reminds me of my bathroom. Always, I must have a red-interiored bathroom, including the ceiling therein. What is the most important room you enter on arriving home – invariably one goes to the toilet. A red-interiored bathroom immeidately zaps, decalcifies and rids the energy body of all the dross and positive ions that one invariably collects for being ‘out there’ and exposed to less spiritually evolved souls and their dense energies.
More than that, in all my years, a red-interiored bathroom is the only one where after a good fuck – look, let’s not gussy it up talking crap about lovemaking; it is what it is – one enters the bathroom, which invariably one has to, and voilà, quite by surprise it hits you.
There in the mirror, your reflection bears your body radiating your aura; to witness this, each time, it is the most glorious high imaginable… it is even ‘sweeter’ than the greatest musical experience. Too, each time, it proves the most fuck-all fabulously empowering experience.
You stand there and grow a little taller in your spine, eyes sparkle and you make love to yourself as you realise that you are a phenomenal shamanic soul incarnate and look at that beautiful aura. Next, you hightail it back to the bedroom and fast dispense with whatever notions of this one being just another one-night schtup.
No way, José, that exhausted lover in your bed is the vehicle for jumping to nirvana. So with that, you climb into bed and channel every past life as a courtesan, whore, shaman, guru, lothario, healer and work one’s magic. Were it not for sex, none of us would be here… giving thanks and celebrating this beautiful magical odyssey called life should always be done with the greatest passion, abandon and debauchery…
Do remember that every lucid astral plane schtup is just as valid as any in the waking state – and dare I say it, infinitely safer than when thusly focussed in the waking state. As ever, sweet dreams and here’s to seeing your aura whether lucidly focussed on the astral plane or self-possessed in the waking state.
