The Keys to Holistic Health

The essential keys to empower of holistic health create well-being depending on positive, intentional attitudes and a growth mindset.

The following are the 7 keys considered essential parts of your holistic-health tool belt. There are more but these are foundational.


crown or 7th chakra, spirituality,

From a state of pure consciousness where you are in the moment, phenomenally, qualitatively in a state or experience and feel/know there is something it’s like for you to be in a spiritual, universal, enlightened realm.


third eye or 6th chakra, soul, awareness, mind, witness of consciousness,

In yogic metaphysics, the third eye or Ajna chakra, is the place of transition where we transcend duality – the duality of a personal “I” separate from the rest of the world, of a personality that exists independently from everything else. This is where “I-consciousness’ is absorbed into ‘super-consciousness”.

Awakening your third eye allows you to open up to an intuitive sensibility and inner perception. When we focus our mind and consciousness, we can see beyond the distractions and illusions that stand before us. It allows for more insight to live and create more deeply aligned with our highest good.


throat chakra, communication, purification, harmony, identity,

To be mentally healthy, we need to become increasingly aware of our strengths, identity, core values and options for self-determination. This works in tandem with slowly freeing ourselves from the tethers of oppression and mentally unhealthy environments. As you build up an inner fortitude, your empathetic awareness of what does or doesn’t feel right resonates more openly from the core of your being.


love, healing, ‘un-stuck’, compassion, virtues

Setting intentions is one of the 15 ‘steps’ on the Art Matrix path of being holistically healthy.

Intentionality is a mental state that represents a commitment to carrying out an action or actions, now and in the future. Beliefs, thoughts, and desires are examples of intentional states. They are always about something–propositional attitudes.

Core Values

solar plexus chakra, wisdom, place-in-the-world, setting

Open to wisdom: Also known as the Weltanschauung, your world views and core values set in place for reflection, your particular philosophy of life. This integrates more personal core values with the collective, cultural, environmental realms. Radiate your power in the world would be the words of the solar plexus chakra. The energy of the third chakra is mobilized when we assert ourselves in the world. This would look like the expression of will, personal power, and mental abilities, asserted with confidence, authenticity and integrity.


sacral chakra, imagination, sexuality

Inspiration with creativity: The art matrix is essentially a creative entity, as both the object to be created and as the subject moving forward with a creative, aesthetic, growth mindset.

This is the artistic technique of encouraging people to see common things in a new light as strange, wild or unfamiliar. This is empowered with open creativity, sourcing the energy in the sacral chakra.


root chakra, basic trust, body connected with earth

To be healthy, we need to understand how we are rooted in the natural world. This is the place from which to build a solid foundation. It is the root of trust. To be holistically healthy, conscious beings, we need to be in and with the natural world on a regular basis.

Ecological and environmental concerns and habitats are primary in meditations and the intentional creation of core values, world views and holistic well-being. We can then, better, speak out about important individual and collective issues with confident, well-rounded, compassionate voices.

Using the keys unlock holistic health especially with a growth mindset and a positive, intentional attitude

The human being is a mystery.
It needs to be unravelled.
Study that mystery
because that is what it means to be human.
~ Dostoyevsky

This is a type of archaeological dig

With these tools we holistically engage the ‘archaeological dig’ to uncover and live according to the truths of our most authentic selves which support holistic health.

Honesty, humility, respect, love, wisdom, consensus, balance, non-interference and courage are important values to consider from an individual and group perspective.

When we find our core values and act accordingly, it just feels right. Empathetically and intuitively, these are virtues that feel natural and most sincere. These are the best ethics guides ~ the ones that are most instinctively applied.

The keys supporting holistic health help us be responsive, not reactive

Using these empowering tools helps to create strong foundations for being-in-the-world. You can be more mindfully responsive rather than habitually reactive. Heightening your awareness of your authentic matrix prepares you to interact and think, intentionally, compassionately, and mindfully.

show up in your deepest intention 
and the world
will seamlessly meet you there
~ David Lynch

Instead of living in fear, we speak openly, in acceptance, about vulnerability and learned shame. With a voice of our unique essence, we carry a dignity to empower our identity, in the world, freely, insightfully, and harmoniously.
