"First Chakra Activation" Healing Energy Art

“First Chakra Activation” by Primal Painter
“First Chakra Activation” is the latest in the series of first chakra digital paintings that I’ve been working on in an attempt to activate my first chakra.   I may tweak it a little more as things get moving, or I might feel compelled to do an entirely new one.  One thing I’ve noticed is that things are always in flux, nothing stays the same for long, and for me, I function better when I go with the flow.   
For this series, I wrote down an intention statement, memorized it, then repeated it to myself as I worked through the process.  The statement was “The process of creating this image will open and clear, heal and strengthen, balance, align and activate the first chakra for myself and for viewers. This image is infused with healing reiki energy and can be used as a tool for healing, transformation, and manifestation.”
I also repeated affirmations related to the first chakra during the process so the images can be infused with their energy.  “I am safe and secure in my environment, physically, emotionally, financially and mentally. An abundance of money flows to me.  I have healthy relationships with the people in my life and my environment. I have a strong life force with an abundance of energy and am securely grounded. My hormones are balanced and my endocrine system is healthy.  I welcome challenges as opportunities for growth. I create my own reality. I communicate with God and my Higher Self and always know what to do.”

“First Chakra Unmoving”
This is the first one I did. It’s a little dark with some areas of cloudiness with possible blockages, and seems to be just sitting there.  It’s kind of cool looking visually, though.
“First Chakra Communication”
This is one where I asked for help from the Source and my Higher Self to get things unblocked and moving.  If you look closely, (click on the picture) at the center is a bearded moon (symbolizing God) speaking with an angel (symbolizing the Higher Self), both starting to swirl their energy and wisdom into the chakra.

“Starting to Spin”
This one is the beginning of activation.  The clarity and colors become a little more defined, balance and alignment are leveling out, things are starting to move.  Then I ended with the top image which represents a fully activated and healthy root chakra, although it might still be a little dense..  I’ll keep working on myself and    do another in the future, maybe it’ll be more translucent. 
Wouldn’t it be cool if  I could actually get them to spin? I saw someone with a spinning avatar on twitter, I wonder how they did that?
So I was curious, do you have a favorite? How do you feel when you look at them?
Well I’m heading out to the studio while I’m migraine free!  
Have a great Sunday!

"Riding the Waves" Send Light to Joplin, Missouri

Riding the Waves” by Primal Painter

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.

Later,

Laurie

Chakra Angel


In response to the crazy weirdness I’ve been feeling for WEEKS, I thought I’d do a little evaluation of how my chakra system looks right now.  I created “Chakra Angel” a few days ago with the intention of seeing what the heck’s up.  Frankly, I’m tired of feeling all discombobulated. (This is my word today, so I might have to find a reason to use it again.) (Why is it my word? I dunno, it’s just a weird word…..discombobulated… hee!…who came up with that one, I wonder?)

I see a huge crown chakra at the top, nice, I’m glad to see that.  One thing I usually don’t have a problem with is a good strong connection to the Source, you know, God, the Universe, a Higher Power..  Sometimes I get all discombobulated (hee) with my Higher Self, but the Source is almost always a constant.  

I’m surprised to the see that the sixth chakra,  the second from the top, is smallish and dark.  I always fancy myself as being an intuitive type, but according to this, my perceptions are…….discombobulated.  

The throat chakra, well I’m not surprised to see that one compromised.  I’ve always been an internal type of person. Sometimes I don’t say what I mean, or I mean things I don’t say or I don’t say anything at all. Instead  I’ll fume or bury or pretend.  Not exactly the ideal scenario, not that I want to yell and scream….or do I?   

The heart chakra, not bad.  What a surprise! Cool! Two weeks ago that puppy would’ve been closed up, maybe not even visible, so there’s been some progress. Awesome!

Wow, the yellow solar plexus, the third, is HUGE! What’s up with that I wonder? The third chakra is about self identity, how I see myself, how much do I believe in myself, how confidant I am.  This is a good sign…but maybe it’s too big, too open?  A third chakra that’s too open can cause stomach and digestive issues from not feeling safe in your environment.  I don’t have any of that so maybe I’m good..

The second chakra is  not looking too bad. Good deal.  I’m glad the work I’ve done on the second chakra is holding up although it’s slightly out of alignment.  That’s easy enough to fix…. Visualize each chakra in perfect alignment with the others, listen for thoughts popping up as to why it got out of alignment in the first place.  

The first chakra is looking a little puny. I’ll do some more work there. Extending down from the first chakra are the start of some decent grounding cords but they don’t seem to be too strong.  I’ll work on those, too, as I do have a tendency to float away into la-la land. (but, but…I  love la-la land!)


A new way of diagnosis, cool!  Did you see the moon face at the bottom of the angel?  Did  you know that you can actually airbrush with Gimp?  How fun is that?! I’m going to start doing more hidden faces, images, and figures.  I love art that has surprises!  I’d really like to learn how to use the “layers” tool so I can superimpose  photos onto each other.  


There’s some kind of tool, or computer where a person can actually hold a pen and draw on the screen instead of the clumsiness of using the mouse.  (I’m terrible at drawing with the mouse!)   Anyone know what those things are called?  They probably cost a gajillion dollars or maybe even two gajillion dollars, but sure would be fun!


Well, I’m off…. Maybe someday I’ll learn how to put page tabs at the top of this blog and include a chakra guide.  I forget sometimes that not everyone is familiar with chakras, Reiki, and other energy work terms.


Have a good one!!

Synchronicity and Life Purpose

I’ve been a big fan of James Redfield for years who wrote the  Celestine Prophecy series of books. If you haven’t read the Celestine Prophecy books, they’re centered around synchronicities, spiritual insights and awakenings. I don’t have his latest book, “The Twelfth Insight” yet, but I’m going to order it today.

I’m also going to start reading the series from the beginning because it’s been a few years since I’ve read it. A movie came out a few years ago called the Celestine Prophecy, but unbelievably I haven’t seen it yet.  I’m  going to see if our video store has it, and will be getting it as well. 

Why all the excitement about James Redfield?  Well, I got a notice in my email, that a James Redfield had followed me on twitter.  What?!  Surely not THE James Redfield!  But it was!!  I went to the link from his latest tweet, and below is what I read.

Global Prayer Project sponsored by James and Salle Redfield

Beginning on April 14, a predicted second phase of Unity Consciousness is due to enter the world according to the Mayan Calendar and other prophecies. Again, this deeper spiritual consciousness is something that we can feel personally and see operating synchronistically in the outer world. Remember, this Unity Consciousness, called a 9th wave of divine creation by the Mayans, is predicted to come into our perception in a series of in phases. The first phase, called a Seeding phase, began on March 9 and was characterized by the expansion of the democracy movements in the Middle East and a new emotional empathy with those suffering from the shocking earthquake in Japan and the economic turmoil, especially in the US. The second phase, due to arrive on April 14, is called the Germination phase.


Obviously, this new consciousness is what I have been calling the Twelfth Insight, and I have pointed to the necessity for all of us to “Tune in” or open up to the emerging energies of this spiritual consciousness as though we are — as the Mayans suggested with the names of these phases — cultivating a consciousness within ourselves like a farmer would cultivate a plant. This week, let’s offer our prayer and visualization toward enhancing and uplifting this process. Join us as we seek to bring the arrival of this new consciousness more readily into public awareness in a way that transcends the fear, pain and anger so many are holding onto.

Wow, how very synchronistic!!  I got a crazy wave of goosebumps when I read this and also when I read other articles on their website CelestineVision.  In my last post, I compared the awareness of my life’s purpose to a cutting from a plant with no roots, but finally feel as if  I’ ve sprouted  some roots.  According to the Mayans, March 9 (my daughter Andi’s birthday, how synchronistic!) was the beginning of the Seeding Phase, and April 14 begins the Germination Phase. Maybe a seed is what I was, not a cutting, but I was close! 

Another strange synchronistic date for me is December 21, which is also a Mayan prophecy date, the big one, which some have misinterpreted as being the end of the world but in my opinion is more along the lines of the beginning of a new level of spiritual consciousness. 

On December 21, 1984, I was the victim of a very brutal attempted murder and rape that took place in my own house while I was in college. I repressed the memory of the rape for 17 years (it happened while I was unconscious from multiple head and brain injuries), and when it finally bubbled to the surface nineteen years later, I thought I was going insane. 

This incident is what triggered me to seek out help.  I was led, very synchronistically I might add, to getting my Reiki degrees and learning about energy work.  Maybe I’ll write about that story some day, it might be good for me, although will undoubtedly be disturbing for readers.

Also, I ran across one of my old notebooks from years ago where I had “Lightworker Studio” written all over the page. Wow, trippy. Maybe I’ll change my biz name to Lightworker Studio and start to live my life like somone who believes, like someone who’s sprouted roots, rather than someone who just says the words.

So anyway, I’m a little blown away.  I wonder what will happen today?  Expecting synchronicities is how to keep them coming, according to the Celestine Prophecy.
 
“Live every moment of every day with awareness and intention.” I think this will be my  new tag line that I’m going to repeat to myself over and over so I don’t doze off again.

 
Have a good one!

Digital Energy Art "The Angel" by primalpainter

“The Angel” by primalpainter
I was in an Angel mood yesterday and created this beautiful energy art from a photo of one of my older wall sculptures called “Forest Angels”. I have the same image in several different color combos, but this one is my fave.

The wall sculpture I used for inspiration is actually quite different from the ones I have listed on Etsy and Artfire right now.  I painted the glass in a transparent way and put a bulb behind it so it’s actually a light. There are hidden images of angels all over it.  I did several styles of these wall sculpture lights, not quite sure why I stopped doing them because they’re really pretty cool and unique.  My daughter has this hanging in her apartment.

See any angels?
So  I was thinking, (oh no, not that) there seems to be a big connection between my moods, energy level and the weather.  I seem to have a strong desire to hibernate if the temperature gets below 55 degrees. Is that ridiculous or what?! 55 degrees!! 
I think it must be one of those excuses that I pull out of my bottomless pit called “Stupid Excuses and Ridiculous Reasons for Procrastination“.  It’s always been a little tricky to be self-employed, there’s just so many things to get distracted by….. like naps….soap operas…flowers….books….daydreaming.  If it’s gloomy outside, Good Gawd, can’t work in the studio today, I might get some gloom on me or sumthin’.  What the…?!  That’s so ridiculous!
I really have to change my ways, like maybe get on a schedule of some kind.  (A schedule? Really? Me? LOLOL)   Seriously, though, I need to work on my self-discipline which is something I’ve been telling myself for the past oh, 30 years or so but to no avail.  Maybe it’s time to grow up………
On that note, let’s watch a little video: 
That could be me telling myself  “You’re 50 years old, grow up, get some self discipline, and get on a schedule, darn you!”  I respond with “Talk to the hand, bee-otch, I can kick your butt with my kung fu feet!”. But in the end, it’s all just  “DA da da…da DA da…. da da DA”.
Haha, I could do a whole post on the imaginary conversation between these two
Well it’s gloomy, cold and rainy so I’d better curl up with a good book……Good Gawd, I’m hopeless!!!
Later,
Laurie

An Interview, A Giveaway and Energy Art

“Second Chakra-Expansion” by primalpainter
This is a digital energy art image of my painting of the second chakra called “Healing the Hurt“.  I only used one filter to alter it in Gimp as opposed to a gajillion filters like I usually do.  I needed this today due to unforeseen circumstances. I think the time is ripe to do my fourth chakra painting, the dreaded heart chakra. 
For those who don’t know what a chakra is, here’s a good explanation taken from the blog Kundalini Yoga and Chakra Balancing:
A chakra is defined as a wheel, or vortex of energy. There are seven primary chakras that flow through a human’s energetic system. The chakras have been called “windows to the soul” this is because they provide humans with subtle connections into soul consciousness. It is through the seven energy centers that vitality pulses throughout our system energizing many of our physical, emotional and mental states.




By removing blockages within our chakras we are able to remove blockages within our lives and can discover our true self, and purpose in life and in that discovery live to our fullest expression and potential.

“Second Chakra-Movement” by primalpainter
Now for some exciting news! Melinda from Simply Smitten,  a person I greatly admire, and an Etsy, Artfire and Blogger Extraordinaire did a feature post about me on her blog yesterday!  I was so stoked about it, she did a fantastic job!  She could be a professional interviewer, she asked just the right questions that really made me think and clarify to myself in writing just what exactly it is that I’m doing with my artwork. 
Be sure and check out her blog, Inspiration Earth –  A Journey of Simplicity.  While you’re at it, if you’re into earth friendly products such as body scrubs, hand sanitizers, lip balms, cleaning products, insect repellents, air fresheners and cool personalized clipboards and more, check out her shops on Etsy and Artfire.
Sometimes, my ideas bounce around in my head like popping popcorn, and writing them down in a coherent way can really help to streamline the goal.  It’s something I need to remember to do for myself periodically. 
Paramahansa Yogananda said something along the lines that there are several levels to creating your own reality.  The first it to think it, the second is to write it down, the third is to speak it out loud, and the fourth is to take action.   I would add that it’s also important to “feel” it, feel the emotions that go along with a strong visualization of your ideal life. (This wasn’t my original thought, I heard it somewhere).  So thank you, Melinda, you prompted me to get things into stage two!
Another thing I wanted to mention today is Simply Smitten’s daughter Forest Faery, is having a giveaway on her blog Dreams of Fae.  I hadn’t really thought about giveaways before, but  Forest Faery is an inspiration to me despite her young age.  She’s giving away a free 5 x 7 print of one her beautiful photos, coupons for both of her Etsy and Artfire shops, an interview on her blog and two friendship bracelets.  What a haul!  Be sure to check it out!
Well, I have things to do today…it’s cold, I still have a migraine, so I’m thinking warm bed and my Stephen King book.  Important things, verryyy important things. lol  Maybe tomorrow I’ll be back to myself….
Have an awesome day!

"Healing Energy" for Japan

“Healing Energy” by Primalpainter
“Healing Energy” is digital energy art created from my wall sculpture entitled “Clearing the Chaos“.   I created it today in response to feeling helpless.  I held my intention steady on sending healing energy to all those affected by this terrible disaster during the entire creative process.  I don’t know that it will help, but it sure doesn’t hurt.
I need a break from the news, it’s really starting to affect my energy level and mood.  My boyfriend has been watching the news nonstop, and I’m about ready to throw the tv (and maybe him) off the balcony.  I wouldn’t do that, though, I like my Wednesday night shows, and he’s the cook in the family, can’t toss the cook off the balcony.

Desperate for a break from the whole end of the world, worst case scenario mentality, I found a couple of videos to lift the vibe a little.

Is it wrong that I find that hilarious?  Heheeeeheeeeeeeeeee!  I bet that lady’s pissed that her son put that video on you tube.

How about another one……
That looks like fun…….It makes me imagine hopping around in a tuxedo at a serious cocktail party. lol
One more short one
lol
Ok, I feel a little better, have a great day!
Laurie
