chakras doll

i was in this yoga swap with a girl that did kundalini yoga. kundalini arising is when all chakras are awakened and aligned from your root one to your lotus one (top of the head). so the purpose of the doll is to show where the chakras position on the body and the colors associated with them.
i chose to knit the chakras in velvety soft and ridged round patches of thin mohair yarns held together to create the color that i wanted.

some yarns was dyed with kool aid.

the doll has her face all embroidered after my swapee.

she said she has "sunflowers" in her coloured eyes, so i embroidered sunflowers in them.

the purpose of this doll is Bliss in the body, healing the chakras:
this doll helps visualize the body chakras placement later when you're meditating.
touching its chakras is good as they are ridged (garter stitch) and fuzzy (mohair) and all the rainbow colors.

also, if when it's your face you cuddle it and like a soft toy you feel better and soothed :-)
