See the video which perfectly matches the concept and listen to this enchanting music as well…It will introduce you in an ..ALTERED STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS…..!!!…lol…

“ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS” is a new series I’m going to create….

The title speaks for itself and the images help to understand

This idea has slowly grown in my mind since I uploaded “HIPNOTIZED”, the work right down below

I’m just talking about people who experienced Altered States of Consciousness (just like hypnosis)or feel life in another way, or have different ways of watching or living life or can’t cope with the complexities of the daily…

Mind you, nothing dramatic!…lol…It’s just my creative burst!…lol…

I hope I can achieve my goal! It’s up to you to judge!…LOL

It’s me! It’s a self portrait , just to represent this particular Altered State of Consciousness. The original shot is here down below:I took it today with my iPhone. Processed with many layers and filters in Photoscape, to give to the shot a dramatic mood

Thanks in advance 4 taking ur time to watch, comment and click on the other images of the whole series

    Meraviglisoa di nuova, Daniela. Sorry to nag, but the subtitle should be: (alternative states of consciousness). x

  • Hi John! TNX BUNCHES again! It’s been telepathy…I was commenting a shot of yours while U were commenting this one! WOW!That’s great! ;-)
    As for ALTERNATIVE….I don’t know it it suits with what I’m referring to…or, BETTER….maybe I wasn’t able to explain the whole concept with my English…lol…I’m referring to this one: Alterate state of Conscience = ASC – WIKIPEDIA What do U think about? Please, let me know! And TNX 4 ur notes! This is the BEST way to improve my English! TNX my beloved English teacher! ;-) Luv, DANIELA

    I do understand what you wish to express, Daniela. But going by Wikiepedia it should be ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS, not ALTERATE STATE OF CONSCIOUS. There is no such word as “alterate”; and “conscience” is the part of the brain that is supposed to tell what is right or wrong: for instance “I have a guilty conscience about….” Consciousness is really the same as awareness: knowing what is going on around you.

    English is a terribly hard language, Daniela, but your English is brilliant. xx

    How could I do WITHOUT YOU?????

    PLEASE, BE NAG, when I need it!…lol…(I’ve just learnt another expression! TNX)
