Chakra Art and Diagnosis

This is my latest orb interpretation...worlds within worlds. I'm lovin' on those colors. I made this one into a necklace, too which looks awesome:

Well, the world is a freakin' mirror,.a MIRROR I tell ya!  Good Gawd, if only what I was seeing was purr-dy.   But nooooo, what's getting reflected back at me is fugly as all get-out!!!!  To be fair,  I can balance that with the times that what gets reflected is all good.  That happens alot, I'm just being a drama queen, Miss Tied Up in Knots with a bad case of whoremoans..

It's just so much easier to feel self-righteous rage at the other person's shortcomings.  But I tell you what, that feeling of explosive rage sucks the big wang. (To self:  that sounds kind of vulgar when I see it in writing, haha, oops)

 The Universe is providing me with  mirrors so that I might recognize that the issues that drive me insane in someone else are a reflection of issues that exist in me.. I have to say, that sucks.....

These mirrors are showing me that I still have some unresolved anger and resentment at a variety of experiences.   I think 2012 is a time for releasing all that old crapola, learning the lessons from our experiences, getting to the root and yanking that baby out once and for all.

Easier said than done, as usual.  I mean, the root could go back to last week, childhood, the womb, or a previous life, who knows.  It might be like one of those tap roots on passion flower vines that go so deep and all over the place that you'll never get it out unless you excavate the whole area.  Wow, that would be a real drag...

It seems to me that creating energy art for the past eight months, has triggered some much needed healing and balancing within me, but now I need to get out of all that upper chakra blues and purples I've been indulging in  and get back into the lower chakras, the reds, oranges, and yellows. (Wailing) Ick, I don't wannaaaaa................... But I suppose it's for the best, so here goes, a depiction of the problem I'm having.

So apparently I'm having heart chakra issues as indicated by all the green.  But why?  The red around the perimeter of the orb looks like a barrier between the light of an open chakra and the flowing movement around it. First chakra - feelings of survival, feelings of being safe. Heart chakra   - giving and receiving love......that would make sense.  I don't feel safe in a certain situation, trust has been compromised and it's blocking the flow of the heart chakra.   Fortunately there's an angel to help out and lead the way to understanding and healing. Enough dilly dallying, Angel, let's get a move on.... What? What's that?  I have to do some introspection?  Some lesson learning?  Some (shudder) forgiveness? And the dreaded, "letting go of the need to control"? Crap.....

I embedded the reiki symbol choku-rei in this image to amp up the healing energy, and I also wrote the words love, heal, forgive, and guide inside the orb as well. They're hidden in the image pretty well. A person would have to look really close to find them, but I actually like that idea.  I think it might connect the viewer to the energy of the image on a deeper, more energetic level. (I love my fancy new tablet and pen, by the way..hehee)

Well, I'm off to ponder and introspect, ugh. Wouldn't it be nice to just float around in the blues and purples forevah and pretend like those lower chakras don't matter? That would be awesome!

Until the next episode of Miss Tied Up in Knots, have a good one.



  1. Love it! And understand the sentiment all to well. Grounding would be very helpful at the moment as i have a number of mirror issues as well! And love your new line of jewelry. x Julie

  2. Oh yeeaahhhh! Grounding cords. I forgot all about those pesky grounding cords while I was floating around the outer realms the last couple of months. Crap, back down to earth...but thanks for the reminder! Maybe if I hurry up and deal with earthly issues and emotions, I can get back out there where I like to be faster!

  3. Both creations are stunning. Love the fluidity, colours and design. Adore the moons :) Beautiful and they speak to you!

  4. Laurie ~ I am so, so loving Moon Angel! She really is so soothing and gorgeous. Yeah, that whole mirror thing can be pretty disturbing, can't it? Those ugly things in others that you never want to fess up to being a part of you. I do hope that 2012 can be your year to release and let go. After awhile don't you feel like it's just time to move on already? ;)

  5. Beautiful. Sounds like a great year for such "chores".

  6. I agree with Mom - Moon Angel is GORGEOUS!! I also love that untitled one...with all the green. It's also quite gorgeous. :) Your art is so awesome, Laurie!!

    I've heard that mirror thing before, that the things you find annoying in other people are things you might need to work on for yourself. It's so hard to recognize that kind of thing in yourself, though!! I should probably make a point to study myself more often...

    Have fun with that pondering and introspecting, Laurie!! ;) Hugs!

  7. Love the Moon Angel..she's fabulous.. love the other one too.. sigh.. have heard about this mirror thing too.. this sounds like alot of work but am sure will be well worth it in the end.. Good luck with it.. I have missed so many gorgeous pieces that you have done while I was MIA.. beautiful!!

  8. Thank you Jane, I seem to put moons in just about everything I do. I think I have a bad case of MMM (Multiple Moon Mania)

    Hey Melinda, Yes that moment of realization that you're looking in a mirror is quite a shocker. As disturbing as it is, though, it's still an opportunity to grow. Hopefully I'm up to the task and won't retreat into my usual dreamy floaty self!

    Finding Charm, I'd much rather spend this year playing in the outer realms, but alas, things need attention back here on earth!

    Hey Taylor, I like Moon Angel too, those colors...yum! Yeah, that mirror thing, ack!! You're never too young to start looking at yourself, a person could save themselves a lot of time and confusion before they get set in their ways. Pondering and introspection, ick! lol

    Hi there Kath! Good to see you back in the blog world. It seems like many of us have needed a little break. Ebbs and flows.....It's best to just go with it. I'm thinking that 2012 is a year to clear things up. Probably not fun, but necessary nevertheless. (Is nevertheless a word? lol)

  9. Amazing work mis primal painter and for honest, mirrors are the toughest lesson! but sometimes we see all the bad mirrors and forget to pat ourselves on the back for the good ones! because sista ther is sooooooo much good in you! love the blog love the art!
