Spiritual Art: Chakra Stones and Expanding the Way We Look at Chakras
I am very happy to have discovered the **["Natural Medicine"](https://www.naturalmedicine.io/)** tribe as a way to explore further the connections between art, creativity and metaphysics and healing.

When you create what I call *"Spiritual Art,"* it's often challenging to find your niche.

*A set of 7 matched Chakra Stones*

## *Chakra Stones*

Alchemy Stones have their roots in meditation. Pretty much *all* the early designs I painted where *"non-specific"* in the sense that they were intended to be medication objects, in a very *general* sense.

My wife — being (among other things) an energy healer and Reiki Master Teacher — was instrumental in helping my further explorations of mandala stones as healing objects.

During one of our very earliest outings as vendors at an Arts & Crafts fair, our booth was visited by several massage therapists who were also Reiki practitioners, and they were very interested in knowing whether I could make *"Chakra Stones"* they could use in working with their clients.

*An individual "8th Chrakra" Stone*

Various discussions ensued, followed by a lot of experimentation, out of which I started painting designs that were created for meditations focusing both on *Chakra Balancing* and on healing particular Chakras. 

This happened around 2014-15, and since then I have created many *individual* Chrakra Stones, as well as Chrakra Stone *Sets* of 7 stones.

## *Expanding the Concept...*

When we talk about the Chrakras, we primarily talk about the seven primary Chakras located in the body: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown.

Now, depending on what you believe and what texts you consult, there may *actually* be as many as 114 Chakras! 

![AS-0032-4-6-Stones.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmfReQEs4oez6cPwSfWTFLr2aUHiwJYX1dqhLzHM4s6zFf/AS-0032-4-6-Stones.jpg)
*A recent group of "8th Chrakra" stones*

In our own explorations, what we've currently been experimenting with is the *8th* Chakra, about which there are a number of differing interpretations. So let's keep in mind that we are only talking about *our own* particular explorations, here!

In consulting with several friends and healers, and drawing on our own experiences, we're talking about what my wife is fond of calling the *"God Box"* or how we connect to spirit; where the heart/mind/soul meet and connect to the Cosmic.

Schematically, it's represented as being somewhere above the Crown Chakra. From a color perspective, I mix gold with the colors of the Heart, Third Eye and Crown Chakras.

The first of these stones were completed in 2018, and they have become a regular part of what I create.

In the year ahead, we are hoping to continue exploring!

Thanks for reading!

## *Thank You For Supporting!*

Because I *am* trying to make some semblance of income — a *living,* even — I now add this footer to all my posts, in the hope that someone, somewhere, might decide to take a further look at my work, and perhaps consider supporting independent art either with a purchase or by becoming a Patron (for as little as $1!) on my Patreon account.

Thank you, in advance, for your consideration and support!
