*info about Chakras from Wikipedia:
Chakras, in some Hinduist traditions and other belief systems, are centers of Prāṇa, life force, or vital energy. Chakras correspond to vital points in the physical body i.e. major plexuses of arteries, veins and nerves.
David Gordon White traces the modern popularity of the seven chakra system to Arthur Avalon’s The Serpent Power, which was Avalon’s translation of a late work, the Satcakranirupana.
Sahasrara: The Crown Chakra
Ajna: The Brow Chakra
Vishuddha: The Throat Chakra
Anahata: The Heart Chakra
Manipura: The Solar Plexus Chakra
Swadhisthana: The Sacral Chakra
Muladhara: The Root Chakra

I just discovered your art page–and I just love this! What a wonderful idea. And your paintings are beautiful–I could just get lost in their openness to Spirit, and your brush strokes. God bless you, Marina!
Happy to see you here! Thank you so much for your beautiful and kind words! Have a wonderful Friday and weekend ahead.All the very best to you too! 🙂
Reblogged this on lost creek publishing.
Wow! Very cool! I love it!
Thank you, Stephen!!!
Very nice, Marina.
Thank you, Bente!!!
Beautiful! A lovely beginning for new balancing. I’ll take it and use it as much as I can! I love how you started with purple!
Awwww, thank you!!!!
🙂 🙂 🙂
A true and naked honestly realm of the self – this takes courage to just BE – something I learnt in Vipassana awhile ago. The series here has a rebirth of the immense manifestations — incredible colours, vibrant thoughts, loose ends that are at times against all odds — each composition has a life breathing to me – I more than love it ! Yes, I am familiar with chakras as been doing yoga and meditation for some time now — also I have been practicing the energy of jemal, jelal, zaval — these are extended sufic pratice for breathing through rectangular breaths – ah, shall just write to you later about it!
Tres bien ma cherie !! xxxx
Ah, thank you, thank you, my dear!
I would love to hear about it!
Merci beaucoup ma cherie!
I have nominated you for an award on my site! You can see it here: Maxima
Thank you very much Stefan!!!
Congrats for your award too!
You have such a beautiful blending technique. Your work can put others in a beautiful world.
Flattered and very very happy, Donna! Thank you!
Wooo! Loving the bleeds of color that blend in so nicely, and your chakra tree! What a lovely way to start the new year, artistry I will remember in my heart 😀
Thank you, sweet Pink!
Marina – May your new year grow in gentleness and colour as your chakra tree grows through my heart…
…what a wish!!!
My dear dear friend, thank you!
So gorgeous! love the colours…
Ah, Mekala, thank you!!!
Soft and gentle as we would want our Chakra’s to be; very pretty and soothing to the eye.
Thank you dear for you kind [and soothing to my ear!] words!
You are such a special artist, Marina. You are BEAUTIFUL with your work.
How do you make such colour – do you actually mix it yourself? Sorry – I’m sure you do, but it’s awesome, beautiful and awesome.
Oh, don’t apologize! Yes I do mix them, but not always. Sometimes I use them as they come and let the water do the mixing! Thank you for YOUR beautiful words, dear!
You are really good at brushes and painting. You have a gifted talent. Don’t ever lose that fire of yours. 🙂
Surprise! New poem.
Too kind, you are!
Thank you, Charlie!
Good flarf by the way!!
😉 Thank you…:) I was hoping to make a video of my poem soon. on YouTube…:)
Wow I just stumbled across your music!!! Fantastic! I had no idea.
Aw, thank you!! I’m glad you like it!!!
I miei più sentiti complimenti, Marina!!
È adorabile nella sequenza dei colori… ed un ottimo vettore per una meditazione profonda (mi piace utilizzare musica e colori)….
Credo proprio che acquisterò il print formato medio, da incorniciare con radica.
Grazie di cuore e sereno 2013
Grazie di cuore from me too Claudine.
Thank you very very much for your kind compliments! [I do not know Italian but because many words are very similar to english and french I understood most of it]
I’m very flattered you’d like a print [if I understood right!]
Grazie cara mia!!!!
How wonderfully creative! Beautiful.
Thank you for your kind words, Meanderer!
This is so beautiful Marina! I love it soooo much and also love beautiful colours❤❤❤
Thank you dear Violet!!!
I’ve been meaning to ask some time now… how do you do the hearts or other symbols?!!!!
You mean about how I’m colouring?
In the comments… the symbols. I know how to do smilies but not hearts!
Ah, sorry! (^o^) I’m just using ipad symbols for hearts! ❤❤❤
ah, never mind!
Wow Marina you are truly amazing. It is a lovely ‘little Chakra Tree’ which radiates the most beautiful glow. Great creativity indeed. 🙂
I am very flattered, dear Dilip! Thank you so much!!!
Oh! Marina!! I am just stunned!! I LOVE it so much!!! Every night I envision all of our chakras exactly like this, clean and clear and balanced and full of light! BRAVO! ~xoxo! 🙂
Ah… you are also a “nocturnal” person huh!
That’s the time for me too!
So happy we see the same!!!!
Happy Monday and week!
Beautiful piece of art. Thanks for supplying the meaning of the chakra tree.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thank you, Francine! The “tree” bit, was my addition!
Have a wonderful Monday!
hi Marina, your chakra tree painting, the first on this site, looks a little like a new map featuring Spain, trying to reach more distance to France – maybe a good Tee shirt for the separatists there!
…now you mention it, there’s a bit of Italy too! However, I’m not one for separations!!! A Tee, maybe!
That is pretty!
Thank you, Alethea! [what a beautiful name!]
I’m so glad.
…means “truth” in Greek, but then you probably already knew that!!!
Yeah…its a pretty old one.
pure dream colours ……………….
love back Cat!!!

🙂 all about the rainbows xoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxxooxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxooxoxxo
A beautifully balanced beginning. Wonderful.
…much needed! Thanks, Terry!
I like the crown shakra the best. It wonderfully conveys the concept of opening oneself up to the heavens. ŌŌM! (Meditative chant 🙂
That makes me very happy, Russ, as this was my intention!!! Thank you so much! ŌŌM!!!!
beautiful colours, beautiful way of representing the chakras.
Thank you, Nigel!
I’m very glad you like it!
Your true colors are beautiful, young lady…
Ah…thank you Hook!
That’s really cool!
Let’s hope for as much balance as possible for 2013. I enjoy your use of the ROY G BIV color spectrum.
…clever acronym for the Rainbow Raider, huh?!
Thank you, Frank! Yes, lets hope so!
Actually the way we learn them in school. 🙂
…wouldn’t sound that good in Greek!
LOL … Here, we call this a pneumonic device.
…it’s all Greek to me!
PS: here too [mnemonic]!
Love the design and the colors!…bet is looks great on merchandise! 🙂
Beautiful shape and colors!
Thank you, Benjamin!
Oh it s perfect! I so much agree with the colouring!
Χρόνια Πολλά για τον Γιάννη [θα τα πούμε τηλεφωνικά το απόγευμα]
many many thanks!!!! 🙂
I’m glad you like it, Dominique!!!!
Never hear about chakra tree … have to turn to google, what would I do without google.
Now I know … love the colors you used in your – full of power and energy. And it’s bold.
You’re right… I’ve just added some info!
Thank you dear Viveka!!!
Reblogged this on Simon Sundaraj-Keun.
Thank you very much, Simon!
I LOVE your presentation of the chakra!! Very abstract but so very understood through the colours! Have you done your interpretation of the sefirot? Would be interesting 😀
Ah, thank you, Jeannie!
I haven’t but it would be very interesting to. I have to do my research first on the Səphîrôṯ! and Kabbalah.
