Both creativity and spirituality enable us to transcend the constraints of physical reality by helping us to shift our current perceptions via our intuition--the inner knowing that connects us to the spirit world.
Hello, and Welcome…
I’m Jacqueline. I created Dreams and Shadowlands as a place to primarily blog about my spiritual and paranormal experiences with my spirit guide and twin flame, Hans. After earning my Master of Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, I became interested in art therapy, which eventually led me to expressive arts. I'm currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Psychology. My academic and personal interests in psychology and art focus on transpersonal insights that are obtained through spirit channeling and communication during creative pursuits as well as the challenges of having spiritually transformative experiences (STEs).
Synchronicity’s connection with creativity lies in its ability to jolt a person into a state of awareness, allowing for new ideas to be generated.
My blog offers personal accounts, reflections, and ruminations that address creativity, spirituality, paganism, dreams, spirit channeling, and after death communication. I also examine environmental, socio-psychological, cultural, and historical topics, such as ecosexuality, human sexuality, feminism, mental health, countercultures, and fascism. Music is a powerful vehicle toward altered states of consciousness, so I also intersperse videos and songs throughout my blog. Since poetry offers an expressive form of release and processing to my numinous experiences with Hans and other spirits, I sprinkle some of them throughout the blog.
I have found that creating art while channeling my spirit guide is not only a spiritual experience, but upon completing the artwork and evaluating the product, I begin to digest a myriad of symbols and meanings that further elevate my connection to the composition, offering deeper insight into my process and into my connection to him.
My artwork is part reflective, part spirit channeling. Through dreams and spirit-inspired landscapes, I explore the shadowlands of my psyche, exploring my multi-dimensional self. By giving into the flow of creating, I open up to higher states of consciousness that carry me to otherworldly experiences, slightly lifting the veil in order to connect with beings that persist beyond the five senses. I delve into these ethereal realms in search of creative and spiritual expansion.
My spirit guide has shown me through biographical accounts of his most recent life that through a series of uncanny messages and synchronicities, which transcend space and time, link our connection to the past, present, and future through a kind of quantum transmission.
My Etsy shop, Dreams and Shadowlands, features a variety of handmade offerings, from talismans, wands and dreamcatchers to jewelry, bookmarks and pendulums. You will also find designs and artwork that I have created and sell via coffee cups, laptop sleeves and more as well as signed giclée prints of my artwork.
Regardless of how unusual the artwork, or how remote it may appear from our perceived reality, our understanding and involvement with the artmaking process help us to connect its meaning back to our world.
