Art by Melanie Salazar

Art inspired by Reiki

As a Reiki Master practitioner, I’m in the habit of connecting to the healing energy of Reiki on a regular basis, both in my personal as well as professional life. So it’s no wonder that this universal life force energy is what I drawn upon to inform my intuitive art process.

I perceive the energy of Reiki as white-gold and these colors are often in my art pieces that relate to the metaphysical aspects of the chakras and of healing and personal growth.

The colors I use in my paintings, mostly reds, greens, and blues symbolize grounding, love, and creativity respectively.

My artwork primarily fall into one of three categories; healing symbols, intuitive or spiritual guidance, and the healing power of Mother Nature, all of which come from the philosophy and teachings of Reiki.

My process is entirely intuitive, building each layer of my painting based on what feels right in the moment. I use my fingers, sometimes a brush, a sponge, a brayer, and recycled materials.

The result is always magical and surprising, as I learn new ways to express myself and grow as an artist with each painting I create. I continually find emotional freedom, self-discovery, and empowerment in the works I create. Engaging in the creative process is one of the most healing things I do for my own self-care.
