Episode Info:

On today’s episode we welcome visionary artist Amanda Sage. Amanda has had a long journey with her painting and is here to share all her insight on the subject of translating inner visions into physical art. We have a look at some of Amanda’s background and her discovery of her innate ability to channel her inner worlds into beautiful images. Amanda finds that spoken and written language are often a limiting medium, whereas images are a much better vehicle for communicating the unspeakable experiences from her spirit realms. We chat a bit about the history of painting and how Amanda views the timeline of ‘visionary art’. She is adamant it is not a new art form at all with many examples of visionary art available. We also go into how to best access these dreamscapes in a world filled with noise and distractions. I asked Amanda about her relationship to mind altering substances and she was happy to share some of the experiences she has had but was equally clear that they are not the foundations of her work. For Amanda, psychedelics are often abused, not shown due respect and even overused by those who do respect them. From there, we also chatted about the message Amanda tries to convey and how to maintain the lessons that these dreamscapes offer us in our day to day activity. All this and more in the episode so tune in! Key Points From This Episode: Lorna’s new habitat and some of the synchronicity she has been experiencing.

Art by Amanda Sage Tweetables: “Creativity is something that we use in our lives at all times.” — @amandasageart [0:08:27.3] “I find that what visionary art to me really means is that it is medicine.” — @amandasageart [0:10:44.2] About Amanda Sage Amanda Sage is at the forefront of a new breed of visionary/interdimensional artists using art as a tool for personal, spiritual, planetary growth and transformation. Amanda was born April 19, 1978 in Denver, Colorado to her mother YOU and father Jackson, with two brothers still to come. Her childhood was filled with healthy, tropical, media-free, creative freedom in Florida without the distraction of formal schooling until she entered 4th grade in Colorado. After finishing high school in Boulder, Colorado in 1996 at the Shining Mountain Waldorf School (where ‘coincidentally’ her high school art teacher was the Fantastic/Visionary artist HIKARU), her travels and projects bounced her between Bali, Indonesia and Vienna, Austria. Sam Bull from Leap Now helped guide her in connecting with the revolutionary midwife Robin Lim in Bali, and initiating the first contact with the artist and teacher Philip Rubinov Jacobson. After graduating she went to Bali as a volunteer for close to a year, and amongst other projects & exotic distractions, illustrated an herbal book with over 70 indigenous plants and herbs for the natural Birthing Clinic, now called Bumi Sehat. In this time she also extended production of her Batik clothing and design project that she had started in high...
