Opening the Heart Chakra
1999

Opening of the Heart Chakra was inspired through meditation on the heart chakra (the 4th chakra). Also referred to as the seat of the soul. The heart chakra is about unconditional love, not only for others, but for oneself.  When one is able to totally open this chakra up, you are then free to live your life without fear. You are able to forgive and heal. You can live your life in total truth of what is most heartfelt for you. You develop compassion and understanding. You become a channel for universal love, Opening yourself up to your higher self.
In this paining you see a woman Opening up her heavy green cloak. Green is the color represents the heart chakra as well as the physical realm. When the chakra is opened, it changes to a rose color. The star glow appearing on her chest is the heart chakra Opening. Her starry gown reflects the universe above and all the possibilities. The pond below is sacred and speaks of the cycles of the moon. The moon being full represents blossoming of the soul. The butterfly represents the transformation of the self, when one can open the heart chakra. The white calla lilies represent spiritual purity and the roses behind represent the light of love.
