Why I started a blog about Psychedelics, Visionary Art & Spirituality.
Updated: Mar 21
2014 was the year when everything changed for me, I tried psychedelics for the very first time and my world was turned upside down. Everything I thought I knew and believed was all pulled into question.
Then... the thoughts started rolling in.
What does it mean to be alive?
Am I on the right path?
Who am I?
Fast forward to the present moment (2020) and I am still walking that same path. A journey I started walking on that very night back in 2014. After an enlightening experience with psychedelics my moral and spiritual compass fired up and I was on the road of self development drivin by curiosity. It has been on this journey of the last 6 years that I am interested in sharing and at the same time clarifying my own thoughts on topics that intrigue me.
I have started this blog with the intention of sharing my own experiences with psychedelic substances, practicing as a visionary artist and living the spiritual path as I have come to know it. My coverage of the above topics will not be scheduled or organised, instead I will share what I feel is right at the time. I want to also make it very clear that I am not a doctor, educated artist or spiritual guru, this is blog is me sharing my experiences with people who are open to reading about them. This is an invitation into my mind, please wipe your feet before entering.
The basis of what I will be covering over the years that follow are...
My experience operating as a professional artist and all the ups and downs associated with living that lifestyle. I will cover a wide range of subjects such as how I create art as a spiritual practice and how I transform psychedelic experiences into visionary art.
A collection of stories based on my direct experience with psychedelic substances. My attempt at unraveling the untouchable. Some subjects could include my psychedelic set and setting and how psychedelics have expanded my imagination and point of view.
My direction, my steps and my path.
What its like being spiritually aware in my shoes and process I have undergone becoming who I am today. I aim to share my take on living a life motivated by love, but like others, I fall off from time to time. Sharing everything, the two sides of my coin.
For those of you reading that don't know me, I am Anthony Jones, a practising Visionary Artist from Wollongong, Australia. My practice involves a range of mediums including spray paint, digital art, virtual reality and I operate under the alias Ayjay. My motivation around starting this blog is connect more with myself by ironing out the creases in my own thoughts and thinking. All the while growing with a community of people that belive or at the very least are interested or intrigued by a deeper purpose form themselves and the people around them. My motivation is to stand in support of my own truths and share them in an open and honestly venerable way. I am using this blog as a way of prying myself open, connecting with others and sharing my leg ups for a healthy, happy and productive life.
I have no idea where this blogging pursuit will end up but this right here... is the origin of it all. Its great ti have you along for the ride.
