I really love this one. The colors, wow, sunglasses worthy! (heheh.) The imagery has a nice flow, the hidden angels and moon face are super cool, and the vibe when I look at it is high. I’m going to put a moon face in all my digital paintings from now on, it’ll be my signature. Back in the olden days, I made a decent living making a celestial line of mirrors, chimes, wall sculptures and mobiles, and I still dig that celestial vibe……and pyramids, I like pyramids……and spirals.
My desire to communicate seems to be at an all-time low, but my creative juices are flowing pretty well, so that’s a good sign. During this phase of non-verbalism (or non-verbalocity, or no-talk-aholicism) which I have come to call “The Great Silence of the Yams 2011”, (Yams is code for vocal cords), I decided I should do another chakra angel to check in on the condition of my energy flow.
I was surprised to see the blue throat chakra so open. I thought it would have a “Closed Until Further Notice” sign on it or maybe a “Danger-She’s Gonna Blowww!!” sign nailed to it. There must be something else going on with me because I sure do feel strange….cocooned……internal…….like I’m in a womb, all wrapped up and closed off to the outside. Not stagnant or stuck, just inside myself, like in the eye of a tornado where everything is still but all around me is a wild whirlwind of debris, Wizard of Oz style. Weird sh*t, maan….
The Crown Chakra – White, the combination of all colors, (some say violet, I say white) Our connection to Source, our connection to our higher selves, everything is one, part of the whole, the spiritual aspect of believing in something greater than ourselves and the knowing that everything could make sense if the veil came off. The veil is thin right now, I get glimpses but not the whole sh-bang. The glimpses keep me hanging out in the crown because of the mystery, that curiousity, that burning desire to “know“. (Know what?). It’s so big and sparkly and bright and shiny and happy and safe. No wonder I like to hang out there although according to this diagnosis, it’s probably out of balance with the rest of the chakras because of it’s gi-normous size. Balance is everything, but then so is timing….patience, grasshopper.
The Sixth Chakra -Purple (some say indigo blue, I see purple) – The Third Eye – The Seat of Intuition – “I see you”, Na’vi style from the movie Avatar, seeing the issues behind the pain. This one doesn’t look too bad. I’ve been working on blue and purple digital paintings lately while focusing on the fifth and sixth chakras and I think this process has cleaned out some of the cobwebs in both of them. Cool.
The Throat Chakra – Blue – Communication, change, committment, verbal self expression, speaking your truth. It looks fairly open and clear but it’s out of alignment, not by much, but by enough that it needs attention, more work, the next step. I’m still convinced there’s something stuck in my throat but I can’t see it in this picture. (Maybe it’s behind, maybe I should do an image from the back side, yeah)
The Heart Chakra – Green – The Bridge between the upper and lower chakras, the mediator, love, nurture, empathy, compassion, understanding, Christ-like. (I wish I was more Christ-like). It looks open and cleared out, but not very vibrant or active. I recently finished the heart chakra painting with the intention of opening and clearing, so this is good. The next series of chakra paintings will have movement, activation, spin, and spiral. (spirals!!!)
The Third Chakra – Yellow – The Solar Plexus- thinking, intellect, self worth, self-esteem, self identity, who am I?, what is my purpose? why am I here? There’s something I’m supposed to do. I know I can do it. I’m slightly out of alignment with my higher purpose but it’s close….I think too much and don’t feel or do enough, possibly because the second chakra isn’t open enough.
The Second Chakra – Orange – Hara – the center of emotions, (easier to shut them down and pretend like they’re not there) male or female identity, sexuality, intimacy, bonding. Poor ole’ second chakra, it’s open but needs more, lots more. The color is good though, so some clearing has taken place so at least there’s been some progress..
The First Chakra – Red – Root – Kundalini – Procreation, survival, safety and self preservation, bodily life energy, stamina. And there it is, that puny first chakra. The plant is only as strong as its roots. It’s not dark, so that’s good, it’s just small and needs to be more open and activated.
And the grounding cords, what grounding cords? There’s a red light at the bottom of the angel where it looks like the grounding cords have disconnected and pulled back into a dark cave. That’s not so good, but this is a typical problem with me. I have a tendency to float….
So now I know what to focus on. I love chakra angels!
(Disclaimer: These chakra attributes are how I understand them and are not necessarily how an expert might define them.)
Until next time, whenever that may be……

And how strange that these images are under a description for candle sconces! If that’s not bad enough, underneath my photos were bad reviews…..of candle sconces!!!! Gah!!
Here’s another experiment with painting using Gimp tools. There are two hidden faces and a little moon in this one….I swear, I can get immersed for hours with this stuff! I don’t know exactly what the meanings are for these faces. The girl seems to be connecting with lunar energy and the high/low tides of emotion. Maybe she has issues with the people represented by the faces and is working on energetically releasing them although the faces don’t necessarily look like enemies, just observers.
I’m not done yet, I see a few more faces in there that need to be pulled out. Hmmm “pulled out“. I wonder if that’s like pulling out a tooth? Bringing to the surface to be healed? I don’t know, all I know is that this is some fascinating stuff and hopefully it will all make sense at some point.
I did a distance Reiki session with the sweetest girl the other day named Anya. She’s a new Etsy seller and just started a blog. Her shop is called ShopDionne and her blog is Start With Style . Anyway, the session was way cool, and I realize once again that I’m clairsentient. I “feel” what the other person is feeling, including physical sensations, although for some reason, many times I’ll feel things on the opposite side of my body from where the person is feeling them. I always think I should be clairvoyant where I “see” things because it’s so easy for me to visualize, but I don’t seem to do that during a session. Sometimes I’ll “hear” things, so I might have a little clairaudience going on, but I don’t really trust that yet….I have a vivid imagination that might be filling my head with thoughts or at least that’s my suspicion.!
Anya is into Reiki and seems to be very clairvoyant. She connected with me also during the session and told me of the visuals she received during it. She saw me climbing a mountain, the higher and steeper the better, sometimes I’d lose my footing and slip, but I didn’t feel fear, I just kept going. I was also wearing a cape which she interpreted as me not taking myself too seriously. lol I’d say that was about right! When I reached the top, I was being chased by wolves, but I hid in a tree that had spy holes in it. I threw the wolves off by leaving my false self out where they could attack it. She had some nice encouraging things to say about me.
I thought this was a very accurate reading from someone who didn’t know of my journey at all! I have to really think about that part where I leave my false self outside as a decoy and let the wolves go after it. That visual keeps coming into my mind, so I’m thinking there’s some profound wisdom in it that I need to wrap my brain around. Anyway, it was super cool and I’m really glad to have met her.
Well today is a studio day. The sun is out, the rain has stopped for a few hours and my grass has grown about 10″ in the last week!! We missed the tornadoes that hit Joplin and Oklahoma. Joplin is about 1 1/2 hours away, 30% of the city was leveled (Joplin is a fairly large city) and 123 people are dead so far. The scenes from there are heart wrenching.
I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning. It had to have been a mistake, but if it wasn’t, I hope someone gets their ass fired. On tv, there were some previews for the 8 a.m. news. They were showing scenes from Joplin and one was of the rubble of a house There was a closeup of the dead face of a kid buried underneath. I almost puked. Of all the insensitive shit I’ve ever seen, my Gawd that was some of the worst.
Sorry for that visual. Put it out of your head, but send love and light to that poor community and the traumatized family of that little kid.
I’m really clumsy with that darn mouse, I wish I had one of those tablets where you can use a pen to draw on the screen. Wow, I could really do some awesome things with that, but alas, it’s out of my reach financially at the moment.

By the way, I got the most amazing package from Melinda, Taylor, Jordan, and Riley yesterday. It made tears come to my eyes it was so sweet. Melinda sent me some orange flavored lip balm and my lips still feel soft from yesterday. She also sent me some Invigorating Hand Sanitizer made from witch hazel and essential oils…it’s really amazing stuff, and so is she. The handmade cards she sent are absolutely gorgeous….and I mean gorgeous! Taylor sent me a lovely purple bookmark with my name on it, Jordan sent me a super cool handmade card and four of her needle felted acorns (so cute! I have the perfect little bowl). Riley sent me a handmade zebra card and a sweet note. Let me take a picture real quick…….
That photo doesn’t really do those handmade cards justice, they’re extremely well done and appealing! Thank you so much Smitten Family. It wasn’t expected or necessary, but I’m thrilled and touched!
Now for a couple of pictures of the things I smell when I walk outside (in addition to dogs and goats….)
I think I forgot to size all these photos down. Does this page load super slow because of it?
Have an Awesome Sunday!!!
Have a good one!
