The solar plexus chakra –

The Solar Plexus Chakra

One feels then thinks the one must do.  This chakra is all your energy, power and action. It is located below the breast bone behind the stomach.

My interpretation of this all is that when I feel that feeling in my gut telling me that something is or isn’t right that is my intuition. In order to maximize our intuition and connection to our senses we must make sure our Solar Plexus Chakra is clear and fully active.  I’ve written a little about boundaries here (https://noellerollinsart.wordpress.com/2012/06/14/i-give-you-permission-to-say-no/ ) and I think this also comes from having increased self-esteem. When you feel good about yourself and your place in life you don’t worry quite as much about people pleasing.  I feel as if I’ve made so many strides in this area yet it has me wondering since I had to have my gallbladder out last December if that is somehow tied into my having more work to do in this area.

Here is the boat pose (below). Other poses that are good for clearing this chakra and activating it: sun salutation, warrior poses and twists.

From about.com: The Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the color yellow. This is the area which defines our “self-esteem”. The personality that develops during puberty is housed in this chakra….otherwise known as the “EGO”.  Anyone experiencing dysfunction of the third chakra is having difficulty obtaining or maintaining his/her own “personal power”.  This intuitive chakra is where we get our “gut instincts” that signal us to do or not to do something.  Strong self-esteem is a required for developing intuitive skills.

This piece is part of my Soulful Yoga Series. This series has been created out of my own journey to live more self-aware. I’ve longed for a way to quiet my always running mind, feel good in my body from the inside out and connect with my inner soulful awareness. I believe this series will connect with people who do yoga as well as those who do not but are looking for positive, encouraging, calming artwork.

I will continue announcing each week one new piece for this series.

My first video – a look into my current journey

I have had in my mind a vision of wanting to be able to show more of my artwork then just the finished product. I think part of the beauty of the work is to know the materials, the journey that came before it and the meaning behind it.  I have been taking a wonderful class by Vivienne McMaster called Montage (find her here: http://www.youareyourownmuse.com/   ).   From this class I’ve been refining my story telling skills via movie maker.  I really hope that through this short video you’ll be able to see a bit of where I am on my own journey and how that led me to create my newest artwork series, “Soulful Yoga”.  I am guessing if you’re a reader of my blog that you’ll also see some of your own journey in there as well.

Have a great weekend!!

Sneak Peek to my new Soulful Yoga artwork series

Third Eye Chakra Artwork

I am so excited about my newest artwork series, it so reflects the personal journey I have been on and where I hope to go. I am a student learning the yoga lifestyle. How to be gentle with myself, how to stop forcing things to happen and sometimes just allow things to happen. This requires a faith that what’s meant to be will occur, a trusting and believing I’m am on the correct path with my souls purpose. I have studied each of the body’s chakras; did you know there are colors that tie in with each chakra? Or that different yoga poses not only increase circulation, stretch your body and quiet your mind but they also activate an awaking of certain chakras depending on the pose.  This fascinates me. As I have said before, I am on my own personal journey to being my best self.  I have made huge strides but most difficult one seems to be honoring my body. Respecting it with my time to exercise it, stretch it and appreciate it. I want to feel good from the inside out.  

Each week beginning in June I will be introducing one of my new artwork pieces from this series. Each piece has a back story, a chakra related to it and I am working on a full line of items to go with them. Greeting cards, prints, etc.  I’ll have links to those each week as well or you can save the link to my etsy site where they will all be posted: http://www.etsy.com/shop/noellerollinsart 

I hope you’ll take this journey with me as we together learn more about the body and mind connection, yoga, poses and chakras.  If you have people in your life that may be interested I’d love if you’d share this blog with them.  I will also have links, photos, etc on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/noellerollinsart
