This is my interpretation of when your chakra system is blocked – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. There is hope as I see the healing sun beaming from the upper left healing down a rainbow of energy and light to cleanse the energy centres of negativity and energy blockages. This is originally an abstract artwork with acrylic paints.

According to chakras.info website the following is very interesting:

“Each of the chakras in the body is paired with an endocrine gland and governs its function.

Root chakra (1st) — Reproductive glands (testes in men; ovaries in women); controls sexual development and secretes sex hormones.

Sacral chakra (2nd) — Adrenal glands; regulates the immune system and metabolism.

Solar Plexus chakra (3rd) — Pancreas; regulates metabolism.

Heart chakra (4th) — Thymus gland; regulates the immune system.

Throat chakra (5th) — Thyroid gland; regulates body temperature and metabolism.

Third Eye chakra (6th) — Pituitary gland; produces hormones and governs the function of the previous five glands; sometimes, the pineal gland is linked to the third eye chakra as well as to the crown chakra.

Crown chakra (7th) — Pineal gland; regulates biological cycles, including sleep.”

Goal Mapping Book Review

Goal Mapping Book Cover

Book: “Goal Mapping: A Practical Guide to Turning Your Dreams into Reality,” Brian Mayne, Watkins Publishing, 2020

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book available: May 12, 2020

I read this book awhile back when the Corona Virus was taking root in North America and we started lockdown in many areas of the world. It was a good book and I am sorry I have not reviewed it sooner but felt I needed to give it some more thought.

I am encouraged by the personal story of Brian Mayne and the things he had to do to overcome his educational problems and learning difficulties. That itself, is an inspiration.

Brian puts a number of good and appropriate quotes throughout the book, however, I read it on a Kindle and so there was just a jarring of quotes in a haphazard format that intruded on the flow of the actual text of the book. I do not know if the physical book is formatted differently. It is do-able though. You just need to read and remember where you were at and what the last point was.

If I were to glean the main points of the book are, I would have to say that it is important to use your left and right sides of your brain. Brian Mayne has developed a way to write words from the logical, left side of the brain and then incorporate images or drawings by using the right side or creative side of the brain. It is a way of reinforcing goals in a way that makes it more impactful. In this regard, the author provides some drawings to explain his point, however, I would have appreciated more drawings with accompanying explanations of what they meant to illustrate and really bring home the point of how the goal mapping system works. It would have added so much more to the book.

You can try your own by going to Brian Mayne’s website at https://goalmapping.com

I give this book a 3.5 out of 5 for effort and for his explanations. It is a good starting point for someone who would like to reinforce their vision with words and images.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Mikawoz Our Lady of Guadalupe

Our Lady of Guadalupe

This is a photograph I took of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. Inside, I saw a beautiful corona around the statue of Mary.

According to Wikipedia, “The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, is known locally as La Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe. The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a Catholic place of worship that is located in Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.”

I like the magnificence of the church and also the way the clouds highlight and bring attention to the church itself.

Heart Beat

Mikawoz Heart Beat

Heart Beat

This is a drawing and digital artwork of a Heart Beat. It is becoming 3D with the effects of a pulse and blood coursing through the arteries of this abstract heart. It is living and enjoying life as it automatically beats throughout the day of our lives. There is vibrancy and soul within its orbit like a heart beat is to a musical set of notes.

Mosaic

The world is a mosaic. It is a combination of all sorts of people but we are all one. We come in various shapes, colours and combinations but essentially we are souls having a human experience.

Red and Green

Red And Green

There is a red and green snake amongst red and green leaves of a plant. I like the looping nature of the snake and how it is on top of each other.

According to Wikipedia, “Healing and snakes were associated in ancient Greek myth with Aesculapius, whose snake-familiars would crawl across the bodies of sick people asleep at night in his shrines and lick them back to health.”

I think of the Coronavirus and think of the symbol for medicine featuring snakes.

Life and Death

Life And Death

This is my interpretation of life and death. While there is life, there is frivolity and fun. There is growth and lessons learned. In death, there is the shucking of the physical body and the soul returns to the ethers.

Ornamental

This is a Japanese Garden found near the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There is balance here.

According to the Internet, “Kanso is the Japanese equivalent of feng shui which is all about harmonising yourself with your surrounding environment. It’s every hoarder’s nightmare as it means to get rid of clutter and eliminate the non-essential. … The Japanese aesthetic is part of a seven-part principle to achieve total zen.”

Soul Purpose

Soul Purpose Method

Book: “The Soul Purpose Method: Discover Your Unique Calling, Reawaken to Your True Self, and Co-create the Inspired Life You Were Meant to Live,” Licia Rester and Kir Souder, Kynosura Publishing and Paper Raven Books, 2019

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book available: August 20, 2019

This book starts off with three major sections: Intention, Liberation and and Co-Creation. Within these sections, are more chapters with lots of good information.

Rester and Souder outline that you should be doing that which makes you come alive and to do that with your life – not some pre-fabricated need of society or the world although that might be what you end up doing. They believe that once you combine intention, liberation and co-creation, you get your soul’s purpose. That is the formula.

Further to that, they believe that the summit is inside of you to be discovered and not in someplace outside of yourself. You already have all the equipment needed to get there. As Steve Jobs says, “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what your truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Licia and Kir refer to your soul’s purpose as a “Northern Intention.”

Licia and Kir go through 7 myths regarding soul purpose.

They are:

  1. I don’t have a purpose.
  2. I have to find or figure out my purpose.
  3. I don’t have enough money, time and/or opportunities to pursue my purpose.
  4. I’m not sure the purpose I’ve identified is my real purpose.
  5. I’m not “good” enough (confident, patient, focused, disciplined, skilled, smart, motivated, or energetic enough) to pursue my purpose.
  6. I have too many other responsibilities, obligations and priorities.
  7. I can’t let down or alienate people in my life.

Further on when dealing with issues surrounding fear, the authors use a quote from Albert Einstein. It reads, “The intuitive mind is a scared gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

Their own quote is valid, “What we intend, what we believe, what we choose, and what we act on will create the story of our lives.” That is, indeed, a profound statement.

Finally, the authors ask you to co-create with the Universe or Higher Power or God or Spirit. Paraphrased, they ask you to continue towards service in learning and growing in awareness of who you truly are and in manifesting your goals and dreams in alignment with the highest good of everyone involved.

Rester and Souder indicate that “Wisdom, inspiration and guidance can come at any time, in any form.”

After you have developed your “Northern Intention,” you develop your “Soul Purpose Vision” and then finally you create “Your Soul Purpose Action Plan.” They outline 5 steps in creating effective actions steps.

The biggest take-away from this book is something I know from many of my spiritual practices from books, videos and practices and that is when you are asking for guidance from the divine, you ask, “This or something better for the highest good of all concerned.”

The acorn has the information and drive to become the majestic oak tree and the caterpillar has what it takes to become a butterfly. It is already in them.

I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 so basically a 5 out of 5 and find that it is both a motivational and inspirational book with many insights.
