The Mirari Dreams Art  

Significance and Uses - Extra Information 



What Can be Seen in the Mirari? 

Sometimes the figures, or even faces, take up most of the image and sometimes the figures, either together or in groups, are little. Tiny worlds can be seen inside Mirari when they are viewed close-up. 


Groups of these tiny beings, figures in miniature worlds, frequently so small that they are almost invisible, wander through corridors of colored light. Often, everything is seen softly through veils of mistiness, rather as the spirit world might look in the land of our imagination. 


Some of the pictures are totemic in appearance and although this is to some extent to be expected in a mirrored image, this situation seems to have been taken advantage of in order to create deliberate totemic imagery at the centerline.  


Frequently spirit eyes are apparent in the images, and this often breathes life into the light-paintings. Ghostly figures move through surreal landscape and art is created.  The following and more can often be seen: 



·       People forming lines or processioning - perambulation 

·       Tiers of activity, usually triangular or pyramidal in design 

·       Spirits of many different varieties 

·       Large faces, stylized or life-like, often positioned centrally as the main feature of the art 

·       Eyes, some set in faces and others disembodied; a high proportion of Mirari display visible spirit eyes 

·       Miniature scenes within the photo, including landscape, trees and buildings 

·       Likenesses of religious personalities, mythic or iconic beings 

·       Faeries, spirits of place, creatures and elemental forms 

·       Flowers, wreaths, feathers, lights, gem-like formations, veils, mists and sparkles 

·       Ghosts and shadow figures, animals, insects and birds 

·       Statue-like forms in classical positions 

·       Images within images, i.e. the head of one entity forming the eye of another larger entity in cleverly interlocking patterns 

·       Phenomena that seems to integrate with the landscape in a fortuitous way, highlighting the surreal or fairy tale-like aspects of a photograph, such as placement of eyes in tree-trunks. 


When examined logically, however unlikely it may seem that paranormal imagery can manifest so prolifically, the odds against obtaining many hundreds of such recognizable images as those appearing in the photographs by chance, even if all of them were only exhibiting pareidolia, are too high to be reasonably considered as an explanation. 










The Different Types of Mirari Transmissions 

There are several categories of Mirari that are created, just as I also receive and have cataloged different varieties of paranormal activity in my photographs. 


Despite this, some very real questions have been raised for me when analyzing some of the Mirari. Many appear shamanic in content, while some are more esoteric in nature and seem to display hierarchical imagery that is making a statement of some description. 


In this sense, I am not responsible for the imagery that spontaneously appears on the photographs, but rather with recognizing, refining and presenting it.  


Most of the art appears positive in design, message and intent, but a few pieces are distinctly more darkly themed. This doesn't mean that I consider these pieces to be 'evil' or that they should be kept from sight.  


I have given many different energies a fair voice by offering them a chance to communicate to the best of their ability through the imagery of their choice.  




Structure and Design 

The more esoteric or occultly themed pieces often display in a particular way, exhibiting the formation of a tiered and hierarchical construction. 


This can take several formations, but most often displays with the main entity presented in stylized form in the exact center of the picture. Sometimes this central character's face, or face and body, take up the image vertically, but often the head will appear in the top third, clearly placed at the top of the scene. 


To the sides are the rest of the content, mirrored and flanking the main central image in a way that often resembles heraldry, having patterns reminiscent of heraldic designs.  


Sometimes there is no larger figure, but instead a central structure that looks like a temple or other such gathering place that the tiers are perhaps attempting to ascend towards. In this way they seem to be telling little stories or giving visual demonstrations that are supposed to be grasped by the viewer.

Tiers of Activity 

Divided into sections, there are frequently three horizontal tiers of activity visible in the Mirari that exhibit structural hierarchy. 


Typical would be a lower tier with many tiny people visible. The middle tier might contain more figures, but often different in size than those in the lower level. The top tier will often contain the symbol of deity as top-dog in the hierarchical structure, or perhaps with a temple-like structure instead.  


The image often creates a triangular design. The entire scene might sometimes be flanked on each side by other figures but each one is unique.



Like Paintings 

The imagery that manifests in Mirari pictures is mysterious. It takes the form of pictures that do not actually appear complete until they are mirrored. 


They are in essence meant to be viewed as paintings even though they are photographic in nature. It's easier to appreciate the unusual art in this way, without having any of the preconceived notions that are associated with photos. 


Painted with the light against the varied backdrop of the landscape, the images exhibit textures and colors more reminiscent of paintings completed in a wide range of mixed media and in a variety of styles and genres.  



Mirari 'Mixed Media' Styles 

Different types of Mirari Light Transmissions can present in colorful and abstract compositions as well as little scenes. They can even look like impressionist paintings.  


Sometimes, and most charmingly, spirit flowers, wreaths and exotic birds appear in a piece, decorating it, and often it is one in which faery and elemental imagery appears in the original photograph. 


At other times they take the form of darker compositions. 


These are 'twilight sketches', created from photos taken at dusk, and which are covered with scribbled lines formed by landscape, trees and sky.  


These lines in their own turn are formed by spirits into skillful little sketches of people and symbols, often very cleverly done, but not by the artist, and only through the medium of a camera. 


In this way the Mirari mimics several different painting styles. Due to different variable factors, such as lighting and time of day, the pieces are rendered in several different styles, including pastel, ink sketches and colored pencil, oil or acrylic paintings and watercolor. 


Before presentation, the color, lighting and exposure of the Mirari are manipulated in an editing program. Rarely, the edges of a piece will be cropped. No imagery is ever added or taken out. What you are seeing in any piece is what was genuinely there in the original photograph, all of which are of rural landscape, usually wooded areas. None of the imagery was 'photoshopped' in. No people or animals were present in any of the shots. 




When editing the Mirari decisions have to be made about color. Sometimes it isn't changed, but most of the art pieces have been edited to some extent, apart from the mirroring.  


When it's edited, color may be reduced or further saturated, and sometimes the color scale itself is changed. It depends entirely on each individual image and how it is best presented for viewing. 


Clarity, exposure, lighting, harmony, subject matter and pleasure of viewing are all taken into consideration during the creation of the final image, when these adjustments are made in order to enhance the final viewing experience. 









Many pieces look as though they contain pen or brush strokes, others as though a palette knife were 

applied. Some have a scumbled appearance. Textures similar to those seen in Japanese art papers are sometimes visible. 


Unfortunately I am rarely able to enhance the individual anomalies and textures in a Mirari art piece. Because the coherence of the entire image is key to any art, I can only enhance one area for visibility at the expense of the whole. As noise removal is almost always necessary due to the ecto-mist texture, this detracts a little from the minor details. 


For this reason, people wishing to see clear examples of transdimensional spirit photos rather than art should visit the Consorting with Spirits website. Links to eBooks about this ongoing transdimensional photographic work can be found at the end of this document



Viewing the Images 

Each image is a unique artistic expression, but in some ways, like all art, none of them are complete until the viewer interacts with them at a personal level. 


The pieces can be viewed in several different ways. They can be focus points for meditation and contemplation. They can also be used to train the eye to see in a new way. 


This special content truly make the beautiful pieces mirari, encapsulating supernatural messages from somewhere else within veils of colored light, set against a backdrop of natural landscape features. 


Filled with veiled figures and forms that come together to create meaningful decorative scenes when they are mirrored, often two landscapes appear in one photograph, revealing the underlying beauty of the natural physical scenery overlaid with the spiritual landscape imprinted in the light. 


Spirits can be discovered in many of the Mirari, and if you spend the time you will spot dozens of them. Sometimes you will see faces, but you will also see complete and partial figures in many different sizes. 


The many shadowy figures seen moving through the imagery are the visible transdimensional manifestations left by visitors from other worlds. 



Many Different Sizes 

The anomalies in the photos can be large or small, even almost too tiny to see.  


These little scenes and figures will appear when the picture is magnified (this PDF has a magnifying feature), and in doing so the viewer will be able to find many of these tiny images, although they may not be clear or detailed. Many of the little anomalies have been (or will be) edited elsewhere in great detail. 



Unfortunately, in order to present the mirari as art, the image must undergo 'noise reduction' in an image editor. When an ordinary clear, sharp and focused photograph is seen full-sized or even magnified, the image will tend to retain its clarity. 



This is not the case with the Mirari. Part of the reason they exhibit noise is due to ecto-vapor




The mist-like texture covering the surface of the pictures is known as ecto-vapor, or ectoplasm, and is the carrier for the ghostly images that are contained within the spirit-influenced art; it is therefore an important component of each piece. 


A side-effect of photographic mediumship abilities, this mysterious visible mist is often crucial as an otherworldly canvas for both painting and viewing real ghosts upon, so you will often see mistiness rather than sharp clarity, as these are photographs containing genuine transdimensional components. 


This misty texture visible on the surface of the unique art can be seen on all of the photographs to some extent, rendering them soft and amorphous in appearance. 


Usually an undesirable component of a crisp, focused image, in Mirari art this mist forms the spirit-canvas on which the images are superimposed. This leads to a soft and sometimes grainy look. There is no sharp focus in this kind of image. 


These components contain the paranormal content, the esoteric and mystic symbolism that create the visual messages from transdimensional sources. 






Reaching Through Time





Contemplation and Meditation With the Mirari Spirit Art 

Obviously there is transdimensional interaction and spirit communication occurring. In fact this is an understatement, and the pieces found in this portfolio show only a small sampling of the very large body of work demonstrating that interaction. 


One thing that will definitely happen - when you gaze into the Mirari images, you will find some of the Mirari engaging you, because when observed with human eyes, the images you resonate with will often seem to look back at you with eyes from Otherwhere. 


The images you see are very real, but spending time with them will allow the viewer to see much more. The Mirari are not pictures to be just glanced at - they need the full engagement of the viewer, and a 'submergence' in the imagery in order to unlock the visual secrets that they contain. 


Mirari remain strangely beautiful and evocative visions of other worlds captured on camera and delivered in glowing colors as valuable and unique pieces of genuine spirit art . If you look, you will see them... 



Underworld Energies 

I have discovered that the images can be very useful when used as points of mental and spiritual contact with underworld and geomantic energies. 


The psychedelic and interdimensional quality of these pieces allows for unusual psychic and spiritual experiences to occur during viewing if the person chooses to go more deeply into the image than a cursory examination allows. 


Interacting with the art through your own mind, the longer an image is viewed, the more will be seen. 


imagery will resolve into coherent shapes and forms that you will recognize.  


As the art is a mixture of genuine paranormal interdimensional images and also of course contains pareidolia, it will bring to the mind a richness of experience not usually associated with the one-dimensional imagery of a mundane photograph. Gazing with the Mirari feels more like a three-dimensional experience. 





Just Beyond Reach





Many Eyes  

Each Mirari carries its own secrets within it, and will reward the gazer with shifting and revealing some of its partially camouflaged content. 


If you magnify the light paintings, especially the more complex pieces, one thing you will notice is the many eyes. They are everywhere, watching us as we go about our business. 


The art pieces carry complex esoteric imagery and geometry within them, and they will and do look back at you when you gaze into them. A few sensitive people may feel the spirit energy very strongly when they engage with these transdimensional energies. 


This is why it’s my intention to at some point devise a suitable divination deck using Mirari spirit art. 


While eyes are often clearly visible in the images, some have multiple sets of eyes that can be found gazing back out at the viewer.  


The continuing theme of eyes being visible in The Mirari underlines the basic idea that all life is sentient, and that life is to be found everywhere, prolifically, throughout our own and other dimensions. 




When the word ectoplasm is used in the paranormal field, it isn't referring to the same biological substance that is familiar to those who work in the field of cell-biology, and which forms a protective outer layer designed to support and protect the cell membrane. 


The term itself is taken from the Greek words èktòs (outside) and plasma (that which has form). Ectoplasm is one of the several terms used to describe the substance exuded by mediums, and which is used by spirits to create their likeness when in our dimension. 


It can also be used to create crude ectoplasmic 'tools' which are then used, with varying degrees of success, in attempts to influence and manipulate third-dimensional objects. 


Teleplasma is another name for ectoplasm, as is ideoplasm, and ghost fog, ecto-mist or ecto-vapor. It has been described as the etherealized version of protoplasm, which is the basis for organic life on this planet. 


Some researchers just refer to it casually as ecto. I usually refer to the luminous substance that covers my photographs as ecto-mist or ecto-vapor but I like ideoplasm as well. 


Ectoplasm is a remarkable substance about which we know very little. It is a light-sensitive and versatile fluidic material that often glows, emitting light, but which also has reflective qualities.  


It can sometimes be visible to the naked eye alone, especially if an individual is a sensitive, but is best viewed in a darker environment or with a red light. 


Digital cameras are capable of recording its presence fairly easily under the correct conditions. 


The teleplasmic substance has a plasticity which allows it to be formed into different imagery.  


It can be shaped by thought and intent, and spirits can create their likeness in a way that allows them to be seen as they please, although some are more adept at this than others. 


They can form themselves to a size that matches our own, or they can appear much smaller, tiny in fact. Others prefer to manifest as larger than life.  


On a 'busy' photograph there may be anomalous faces, eyes, body parts and full-body apparitions of all sizes visible in the same photograph, often overlapping each other. 


There might also be the little scenes and landscapes as well, which could contain tiny trees, skies, water, buildings, people, animals and more.


I have seen faeries and elementals, giant insects and scenes that look as though they came out of fairy-tale books appear in the photographs.


These wonderful images will be released soon in an exciting new book about faeries and elementals.
