Week Six: Companion Suit (Chakra Allies)

This was an extremely difficult task for me, mainly because I had never heard of 'animal chakras' before, and am unable to meditate (although I have tried it a few times in my years, but not recently).
I researched the 7 chakras in the body, finding them extremely interesting and believably possible.
Because I don't meditate, I decided to let the pictures 'talk' to me yet again, all the time thinking which animal would represent the chakras in my body.
Here are the few I did and it took me nearly two weeks to complete them.

1st Chakra: elephant
The first chakra, located at the base of the spinal columnd, is related to material things, ie shelter and food.. our sense of security in the world and our survival and self esteem.
My root chakra feels like it should be the mighty elephant. He keeps his balance both physically and mentally and I like to think I do too most of the time.
When this chakra is weakened, one experiences back ache, hemorroids and knee problems (which is what happens to me).

4th Chakra: dog This chakra is located in the area of the physical heart. Love from this chakra is unconditional and closer to compassion. Love is the central power point and true motivator of your mind, body and spirit. It is the mediator between the body and the spirit.
There is only one animal I associate this with and that's the dog. He gives himself totally to us humans with unconditional love and compassion.
I did two other collage cards this week, but have no idea where they fit in, or whether they even fit in anywhere....
