Chakra Healing Necklace

Chakra Necklace “Illlumination” by Primal Painter

This is one of my new reiki attuned chakra necklaces in my energy art line of energy jewelry.

It measures 1″ in diameter, is set in an antique copper finished bezel with antique copper finished clasp and black suede faux leather necklace cord.  The original print is from my energy art line of chakra decor prints and is set behind a magnifying glass dome.

The energy art print is on metallic photo paper and in combination with the magnifying glass dome, gives these chakra pendants an amazing flash.  When the light hits it just right, it actually shoots out light rays!

I’ve been working on these necklaces on my coffee table, and when people come to visit, their eyes go straight to the flashy colors and enticing energy.  I’ve sold several right off my coffee table, and people are coming back for more to give to friends and family.

The chakra necklaces emit a noticeable energy and vibration and  combined with your own stated intentions and affirmations for healing, can be used as energy healing tools.

The back has a really cool mandala design on it.  All necklaces, and everything I create for that matter, is connected to the Source, and attuned to the healing energies of reiki, light, and love.  I’ll attune it again specifically for the person who buys it.  $25 plus $3 shipping.

You can see more of these chakra necklaces on my new e-commerce site Lightworker Energy Art.

The intention for this chakra necklace is to heal, open, balance, and align the first and second chakras.  The first chakra (red) is about survival, security, the ability to connect with other people, feeling safe, grounding.  The second chakra (orange)  is about emotions and intimacy.  Most of us have first and second chakra issues due to emotional wounding which has made us fearful and insecure.

May you have an abundance of love, light, and blessings.

Abstract Art New Age Digital Print

Heart/Throat Chakra

The Clearing” by Primal Painter

heart/throat chakra

The Clearing” by Primal Painter

I created this Abstract Art Print entitled “The Clearing” in April 2011.

This is an exciting new art form for me called Energy Art.   As a Healing Energy Artist, I seek to express the unseen energy all around us into something visually intuitive, pure, beautiful and healing.

__________________________________________________________________

Dimensions: 8″ x 10″ Unmatted, unframed, can be hung vertically or horizontally

Colors: Aquamarine, redviolet, fuschia, several hues of blues and purples, black, white

Paper: Professionally printed on Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper. This paper is glossy with a pearlized shimmery glow that enhances the colors in a deep and vibrant way.

Finish: Signed, Dated, and Titled on the back

___________________________________________________________________

The Clearing” was inspired by some ongoing work I’ve been doing on my own heart chakra. Although the heart chakra is associated with the color green, this image is clearing out not only the heart but also the hand chakras, and is heading towards the throat chakra.

This image is beautiful to me, the colors are very soothing to my eyes and heart, the light in the distance gives me hope. Things are complicated and intricately interwoven in this image.

The process of creating this image is very intuitive and flowing, tapping into the energy of the moment and turning it into a visual representation with healing properties.

I focused on infusing the image with reiki healing energy throughout the entire process in the form of colors, light and patterns. I believe that this image could be used as a tool for healing and transformation. Those who are sensitive to energy will feel it in the form of vibrations, tingling or just a lift in mood and well being.

I plan on incorporating this print into three dimensional wall sculptures, paintings, and also into pendants, brooches, magnets, and mini wall hangings so keep checking back.    Abstract Art by Primal Painter  or Healing Energy Art by Primal Painter

>"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

>A Revelation…..

“To discover the truth of our own vision, we must take action by remembering our tools and putting them to work”.

I was cleaning up the debris littering my computer area and ran across this quote that I’d written at the bottom of a piece of paper.  Unfortunately, I didn’t write down whose quote it is.  I wish I could claim ownership of it, but surely I  didn’t come up with something so profound!!  Finding this particular quote at this particular time is one of those synchronistic “the universe will show you the way if you stop being so freakin’ dense” moments.

The thing that struck me about this quote was the use of the word “tool”.  Several years ago, I had gotten  my Reiki II Degree which means I can practice distance reiki in addition to  hands on healing. (I don’t claim to be a healer, but I can channel healing energy from the Source to the recipient or attune an object or place so that it emits healing energy.)  One of the phrases that was used frequently in my classes was toolbox… “put this in your healing toolbox”.

I became fascinated with energy work, no, maybe obsessed is a more accurate word.  I learned all kinds of alternative healing practices like EFT, chakra work, Therapeutic Touch, cutting cords, biofeedback, tons of stuff.  I have a very impressive library of alternative healing books. After about two years of fun, learning, and healing, I got distracted with some really hard-core bumps in the road that led to a “black night of the soul” that lasted for four years.  Dark times, dark times. 

I started to emerge into the light again about five months ago.

When I look at my Etsy shop and see the category of the things that have sold there, the writing’s on the wall.  I mean, come ON! How much of  a sign do I need?  I’ve only sold seven things there, but get this….five, FIVE of those seven things have been chakra and healing wall sculptures and paintings.  Below is the latest one that sold.

I’m ready to buckle down and really solidify my focus and intention on the creation of art that can be used as a tool for healing and transformation.  I’ve been doing that to an extent, but it’s been in and out, wax and wane, mexican jumping bean brain, just a cutting, no roots.

I believe I just sprouted roots. Live every moment with intention and awareness, no more mexican jumping bean brain.

Wake up, Laurie, be who you really are.   And who would that be?    A Lightworker.

Wow. Where did that come from? I had to look up the definition of lightworker to verify what it means. The following comes from a really awesome article by Doreen Virtue.  To read the whole thing (it probably applies to many many people) click here:

“Lightworkers are those who volunteered, before birth, to help the planet and its population heal from the effects of fear. Each lightworker is here for a sacred purpose. Very often, however, life on earth with its material focus creates a form of amnesia in lightworkers. They then forget their divine and perfect identities, and also their abilities to miraculously help the earth and all living creatures. When lightworkers forget their true identity and purpose, they feel lost and afraid.”

I got some serious goosebumps when I read this article after writing this post.  That usually means truth.

Fascinating place, this universe we live in.

Have a fantastic Sunday!

>Artfire’s 45 Day Success Guide – Days 11 and 12

>

“Metamorphosis” by Primal Painter
I’m still  working on Artfire’s 45 Day Success Guide. I’ve gotten several energy art prints listed in my Artfire Studio,  and also in my Etsy Shop, but I’m still short of having the recommended number of 40 things listed according to day nine of the guide …….40!!! Holy cow, that’s alot.  I’m starting to think that a big key for success is having a high number of things  listed.
I’ve managed to get 21 things listed, so that’ll have to be good enough for now.  It takes quite a bit of time to list things I’ve noticed, even on Artfire.  Having duplicate listings on Etsy requires that the titles and descriptions be 30% different from each other or google will ignore one or the other of the listings.  So for those of us who have shops in both places, give one of those duplicate listings a different title, and write a new first paragraph.  30% is quite a bit more than I was expecting to have to change. Gah!
Also, something else I discovered, on Artfire if applicable, list multiples for your items.  Apparently, when you re-list an item, all of those links and SEO that have built up over time disappear and  you have to start over from scratch.  So listing multiples will keep your links alive for a long time, and that’s a good thing. I’m wondering if frequent re-listing on Etsy loses your links and that’s why google search percentages can be lower on Etsy. Re-listing helps with on-site category searches, though, but I’m starting to be suspicious that the Etsy re-listing strategy isn’t google friendly. 
I’m on day 12 now, although I groan loudly at the requirements for social media and may not do it.  For me, twitter is easier than facebook, just a quick little blurb and you’re out.  Artfire and Etsy both make it easy to do. Facebook seems like a popularity contest that I’m losing……and I don’t like to lose! 
At first when I was doing the facebook thing, I was spending way too much time on there, commenting, shout outs, link love, and I got a ridiculously high number of shop views and hearts.  No sales, though, and I was spending quite a bit of time there for no sales….time that I should have spent in the studio.  Plus, you have to keep up the effort or you’ll lose people’s interest.  It can turn into an addiction, I think.   I understand how it would be beneficial though, and I’ll probably try it again at some point.  
Now Etsy is starting to be more like facebook every day!  Have you noticed that now there are “like” buttons on your etsy pages? Geeze….. 
Here’s a little summary of days 11 and 12:

——————————————————————————–
Day 11

Your Daily Checklist

Five New Products listed in your ArtFire Studio  (good grief!)
Three Posts on the ArtFire community Forums   (I’ll try….)
Three Tweets sent from your Twitter Account   (I can do that…..)
Two Posts on your Facebook Fanpage Wall    (Oh maaaannn, nobody will even notice)
——————————————————————————–

Day 12
Social Media Day Two

We encourage every seller to maintain both their ArtFire blog and an offsite blog (with different material). While this may seem overwhelming, but committing to two blog posts a week (one on each blog), will provide you with the benefits of being an active blogger and keep your readers coming back as long as you post regularly.

(Two blog posts a week, one on each,  that doesn’t sound too bad……)
——————————————————————————–

Your Daily Checklist

Three Posts on the ArtFire community Forums (We’ll see…)
Five Tweets sent from your Twitter Account   (5 tweets now?  Gah!)
Two Posts on your Facebook Fanpage Wall   (noooooo)
One Blog post on your offsite Blog  (Done!)
——————————————————————————–

If you go to the Success Guide  there are all kinds of helpful links for each day plus more in depth  suggestions.

Well I’m off to tweet something,  maybe I’ll post something in the forums, (I’m not sure about that), and I may drag myself kicking and screaming to facebook.  I think I’m nervous about getting addicted to the popularity aspect and then feeling up or down based on the number of comments, impressions, likes….  I even read somewhere that some people are getting facebook depression because they aren’t getting noticed like some of their peers.  That saddens me…..

My success at following the success guide doesn’t seem to be too successful so far!

Have an awesome day!

“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!

“Full Moon/Spring Equinox 2011”

The image above is my tripped out energy art version of last night’s full moon infused with the energy and colors of today’s spring equinox.   In an effort to understand my feelings of weirdness for the last couple of days, I discovered an interesting article from the website celestial vision.  The couple who maintain this website are actually from my little town of Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  Eureka is full of spiritually minded people and is also situated on an energy vortex which seems to attract an abundance of artists, musicians, writers, colorful characters and overall weirdness.
The following is an excerpt from that article:
Rare Cosmic Cocktail Opens Portals for Spiritual Seers By DL Zeta

A unique blend of cosmic alignments over the next few days opens a
portal into new potentials fed by deep streams of renewed creativity and
inspiration. This is truly a portal of new beginnings and powerful
manifestations.

Tonight’s (Friday) full moon is closer to the earth than at any time since 1993.
This full moon in Virgo coincides with the spring equinox, which lasts
three days from March 19-21. The spring equinox marks a time of year
when day and night are of equal length, helping us achieve greater balance.

Add to this mix a rare alignment of the Sun and Uranus at the equinox
point of zero degrees Aries. This alignment holds the potential to open
energetic portals for inspiration, creativity, new insights and visions.
It marks a time to listen to deep streams within and work with
intentions powerfully aligned with our spiritual purpose for the highest
good of all.

As we work with our highest intentions, we are able to align with others
on the inner planes to anchor a new time in human consciousness. This
weekend’s cosmic alignments will greatly facilitate these efforts.

We Stand at the Threshold of an Unimaginable Future

This is an important moment in time when energies are crystallizing in a
future that is at times difficult to imagine within our present
timeframe. The best way to navigate this time and utilize the
opportunities it offers is to go within your heart and reside in place
of peace, love, and allowing. As you exist in harmony with the flow of
your natural rhythms, you exist in harmony with all the universe.

Standing Strong as Old Structures Crumble

During this time of accelerating earth changes and troubling events
playing out on the world’s stage, it is more important than ever to open
to the wisdom and guidance of our higher knowing. As old structures and
forms crumble to make way for the new time on planet Earth, we are able
to stand strong in love and compassion by staying connected through a
telepathic connection to our higher self.

We offer here some steps to strengthening spiritual telepathy. As we
develop a telepathic connection with our higher self, we become
spiritual seers able to reach beyond ourselves into the heart of love no
matter what comes before us. This ability to remain centered in love and
compassion is the source of true healing.

Click HERE to read the whole article which includes her recommended steps for spiritual strengthening.

Now I know there are some who might think this is a bunch of woo woo, and that’s cool, but I’m one of those woo woo girls who resonates with this information.  There are things in this universe that are hard to understand with the logical mind, but when the logical mind is bypassed, the intuitive mind can kick in and that’s when things start to flow.

The full moon image I created this morning was done in preparation for my fourth chakra painting.  I think the fact that this astrological event is occurring at this point in time is very synchronistic.  Ironically, today is also my 50th birthday which despite being just a number, feels like a turning point of some kind.  I believe that all of this is very relevant to not just the healing of my extremely damaged heart chakra, but is also setting the stage for the next phase of my life. 

Wow, that’s some deep sh*t…

Happy Spring Equinox!

Laurie
