The Throat Chakra – artwork reminders to speak your truth

It’s easier said then done sometimes to be confident in the voice we add to life’s situations.  Even rarer is someone who has the courage to speak their truth.  So often we are encouraged to blend in, just agree and be pleasant. Especially here in Minnesota, they don’t call it Minnesota nice for nothin’. The nicer and kinder the better.  Please don’t cause an ripples, just smile and we’ll all pretend that everything is fine.  It would almost be a funny experiment to video tape the faces of family members as a disagreement starts, you would see total terror come across their faces. ;-0

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.

In honor of speaking ones truth this weeks art is all about the throat chakra.

This pose is called the Plow Pose. One of the chakras it helps open is the 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.  You can find the artwork prints here:

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.

The original that this print is from was created on an upcycled door. I love the symbolism of the doorway; closing the door on the past, opening the door to a new future. My husband helps me to cut down no longer needed hollow doors, we then add wood inserts to make all four sides solid. I then add layers of texture and finally do the artwork.
