The Goddess Chakra Series with Jo Jayson
A series of paintings that depicts each one of the 7 chakras in the form of the Feminine. Focusing on the aspect of the chakra color, each painting incorporates a combination of paper, fabric, glitter, stones, beads, flowers and feathers – further illustrating and delineating subtle hues and tones within each color and its vibration.
The Butterfly symbolizes transformation for me, my own transformation, but also my messenger of spirit….it is my totem. Sometimes I use it at the chakra point and at other times I use it where I intuitively feel it should be. At the bottom of each painting is the gemstone or crystal associated with that particular chakra and color energy. I have placed this gemstone next to my signature. I hope that this small gesture completes the story of each color and its healing messages.
Yellow governs the Solar Plexus or 3rd chakra, situated below the ribs and above the navel. It represents wisdom, power, self-esteem and our sense of worth. It is the body’s power house. ‘Yellow Power’ is the expression of the ‘essence’ of the color YELLOW in particular its association with this chakra. It speaks of the personal will, strong sense of self, and the innate ‘power of being’ of which we all possess within each of us.. ‘Yellow Power’ connects us to that center of ourselves which is strong, willful and in control of our lives. It connects us to our own personal ‘sunshine’. Yellow is the energy that vibrates power, strength and personal identity.
‘Blue Whispers of Truth’
Blue governs the Throat or 5th chakra, representing knowledge, independence and communication. It is the center of self expression and self-honesty. ‘Blue Whispers of Truth’ is the expression of the ‘essence’ of the color BLUE in particular its association with this chakra. It speaks of the truth of ourselves, the expression of our creativity and our beliefs. It is expansive and limitless like the sky. ‘Blue Whispers of Truth’ connects us to our own personal truth and enables us to find the courage to communicate compassionately, yet standing strong in our own convictions. Blue is the energy of peace, expansion and communication.
Born and raised in the UK, Jo Jayson started painting and drawing from an early age and she describes herself as a self-taught painter. After leaving art college after the first year, disappointed and uninspired with the lack of traditional training and teaching, she tried her hand as a media buyer in Advertising and then as a picture librarian at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Loyal to her calling to paint and with a natural talent for decorative finishes, composition and technique, she moved into the decorative arts world and became a faux finisher and muralist, working in London, Sydney and New York.
Always deeply intuitive and spiritually connected, Jo started expressing this connection and creating her own paintings in 2006. In 2008 she started working with the “Divine Feminine’ energies and since then she has worked as a professional intuitive painter, channel, teacher and author. Upon completion of her much-loved ‘Goddess Chakra Series’, Jo went on to paint the internationally acclaimed ‘Sacred Feminine’ series of paintings that took 6 years to complete. The images and wisdom that Jo receives and shares, has helped women all over the world find empowerment, healing and inspiration. She is the author of the book ‘Self-Love Through The Sacred Feminine’, the companion to her oracle deck, ‘The Sacred Feminine Guidance Cards and Guidebook’. Jo has spent six years teaching workshops and online courses for healing and self-development in the United States and her paintings, prints, meditation kits and CD’S for physical and emotional wellness and empowerment are sought after and enjoyed by her large following here in the US, Europe and around the world. www.jojayson.com
