Root Chakra –

Let’s ground ourselves.  No, not the punishment but let’s connect with the earth, feel secure and bring ourselves back from spacing out.

When I focus on this chakra is encourages me to come to terms with my attitude toward money, security, greed, lack. This comes up so often being an entrepreneur.  I have to choose to believe deep in my soul that this is an abundant world, there is enough for everyone. There is enough business for me, there is enough money for others and I get to attract those who connect with my work.

This artwork is great for those that are suffering from: lower back pain, sciatica, varicose veins, rectal tumors, depression, immune related disorders and/or the emotions that come with survival, self esteem, social order, security and  family.

Soulful Yoga artwork that works with the root chakra: Mountain Pose, Standing Bow, Namaste, Lady or Purposeful.

Sacral Chakra:

Clear out any blockages in our Sacral Chakra and we can let our creativity soar.  I love this chakra.  I’ve recently started in the last few months doing some of the S factor workouts and I love how much it opens this chakra and leaves me feeling more feminine and connected to my body. Great too for us creative types and I know for me after childbirth my hips have been so stiff so the poses for this chakra will also help loosen those up. Enjoy!

Perfect people to receive this pose/chakra artwork are: people suffering from low back pain, sciatica, ob/gyn problems, pelvic pain, libido, urinary problem and those working through the emotions that come with blame, guilt, money, sex, power, control,  and creativity.

Solar Plexus:

One feels, then thinks, then 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. A deeper connection to self 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.

Great for people suffering from: stomach ulcers, diabetes, pancreatitis, indigestion, anorexia/bulimia or arthritis and those working through the emotions that come with self esteem, fear of rejection, oversensitivity to criticism, self-image fears or indecisiveness.

The Soulful yoga artwork that works with the solar plexus chakra is: Be Gentle, Gentle Whispers and Boat Pose.

Heart Chakra:

The heart chakra is in the heart area, behind the breast bone. It is associated with love, compassion, spirituality and healing.  Here is some great information from about.com . The Heart Chakra is associated with the color green or pink. This love center of our human energy system is often the focus in bringing about a healing. Thus, the saying “Love Heals All” has great truth. Hurtful situations that can affect our emotional being are divorce or separation, grief through death, emotional abuse, abandonment, adultery. All of these are wounding to the heart chakra. Physical illnesses brought about by heartbreak require that an emotional healing occur along with the physical healing. Learning to love yourself is a powerful first step in securing a healthy fourth chakra. The “wounded child” resides in the heart chakra.

Prints from this chakra are especially great for someone going through one of the following times: heart conditions, asthma, lung & breast cancers, thoracic spine, pneumonia, upper back, shoulder problems and those needing extra support in areas of love, compassion and spirituality.

Throat Chakra:

The throat chakra is associated with personal expression, creativity, addiction, criticism, faith, decision making choices and lack of speaking up. The coordinating color for the throat chakra is blue. You will find blue colored accents within the border flowers of this artwork.

It’s easier said than done sometimes to be confident in the voice we add to life’s situations.  It’s not just one decision to start speaking your truth, it takes hundreds of decisions, each where you face the choice to show up and advocate for your truth.

I really believe that when we are in tune with our life’s purpose and are speaking what is true for our most authentic selves that the universe responds.  There is power in thoughts and tremendous power in words, good or bad. Speak from your heart, your souls best intentions and truths and it’ll all work out.

Artwork focusing on activating the throat chakra is great for people suffering from sore throat, swollen glands, thyroid dysfunctions,laryngitis or tooth problems. Often they are working through the feelings that come with struggling with personal expression, creativity, addiction, decision making (choices) or lack of authority.

Soulful yoga artwork that work with the throat chakra are: Speak your truth, Courage, Soul’s Truth and any working with the Camel Pose or Plow Pose.

Third Eye Chakra (Brow):

From Chakraclearing.com: You know your Intuitive Chakra is STRONG when you are able to make accurate intuitive decisions and evaluations about your career, your family and the intentions of other people. Often you know things without knowing exactly how you know them, and you have a clear sense of direction and clarity in everything that you do. Have a vivid picture of where your life is headed, and the people around you are likely to rely on you for guidance and advice.

Know your Intuitive Chakra is WEAK or CLOSED if you feel lost and helpless when faced with decisions and judgment calls. You may be indecisive, uncommitted and unconfident of the decisions you end up making.  Do you feel spiritually lost,  your true purpose unclear to you? You often get headaches and feel tension in your brow area.

People that will benefit most from artwork focused on the third eye chara are those suffering from strokes, seizures, learning disabilities, panic or depression or the feelings surrounding dealing with discipline, judgement or confusion.

Soulful yoga artwork that features poses known to help clear and activate the third eye chakra are: eagle pose, Inward Journey or Perfectly Whole.

Crown Chakra:

Sometimes that answers we are looking for in the world can be answered by simply tuning inward instead of looking outward.  The crown chakra is associated with self-knowledge, a connection with a higher being and a feeling of connectedness.

From about.com: The Crown Chakra is associated with the color violet or white. We use the seventh chakra as a tool to communicate with our spiritual nature. It is through this vortice that the life force is dispersed from the universe into the lower 6 chakras. It has been referred to as our “GOD SOURCE” – but this terminology might be confusing to anyone who equates God with religious dogma, because of this I choose to call it a spiritual connection or communicator. This chakra is often pictured as a lotus flower opening to allow spiritual awakening in an individual. The crown chakra could also be considered the well intuitive knowing is drawn from.

Perfect people to receive this pose/chakra artwork are: people suffering from depression, diseases of the muscular system, skeletal system and the skin or chronic exhaustion. Those working through the emotions that come with discovery of the divine, lack of purpose, trust, selflessness, inspiration, values or ethics will also find value in crown chakra poses and art.
