This past Saturday was International Labyrinth Day.
I only found out the day before, but it’s not the first time that my creative projects somehow align with planetary movements.
As you may have read in a previous post, walking the floor labyrinth and using the finger labyrinths in a local chapel has become part of my regular meditative practice.
I’m amazed at how different my labyrinth journeys can feel.
That’s why, in April, I decided to paint 6 labyrinth paintings that celebrate my various experiences. In painting them, the journey continues.
Here are the first 2.
1. “Chakra Journey” Labyrinth
I created this one Easter weekend.
It honours the grounding, connecting, and chakra balancing effects of journeying a labyrinth.
- RED governs the base or ROOT chakra situated at the base of the spine: vitality, courage, self-confidence, security, stability.
- ORANGE governs the SACRAL chakra situated in the lower abdomen: self-respect, success, happiness, confidence, resourcefulness.
- YELLOW governs the SOLAR PLEXUS chakra, situated below the ribs: creativity, self-worth, wisdom, clarity.
- GREEN governs the HEART chakra: unconditional love, self-love, balance, self-control.
- BLUE governs the THROAT chakra: self-expression, knowledge, health, decisiveness.
- INDIGO governs the brow or THIRD EYE chakra, in the centre of the forehead: intuition, mysticism, understanding
- VIOLET/PURPLE governs the CROWN chakra, at the top of the head: spirituality, self-awareness, beauty, creativity, inspiration
This painting is assisted with the energy of dragonflies to dive beneath the surface and see beyond the illusions, delusions, and self-limiting beliefs.
The original (12″ x 12″) was sold before it was done, but you can order prints by clicking here.
Note: Prints on stretched canvas make great finger labyrinths and can easily be wiped down with a moist cloth if you work in a setting that requires it for hygiene reasons. I suggest you get larger than a 12″ x 12″ if you want to use your fingers. You can also use a soft paintbrush to journey through it.
2. “Peace Flow” Labyrinth
”Peace Flow’ honours the process of returning to one’s centre to reconnect with the peace that is always living there. It helps shed whatever doesn’t serve you so that you can carry that peace back out with you.
Embraced by a peace dove, every dot in this labyrinth is a prayer, a meditation, a conscious opening to peace.
