I created this depiction of the heart chakra entitled “Forgiveness” in June 2011. It took me a month to finish it because my intention was to clear and open my heart chakra which was full of blockages, anger, and resentment from past vicitimizations.
Finding forgiveness in my heart has been a trick. I’ve tried cutting cords….nuthin…saying the words “I forgive you”…..nuthin… putting a protective shield around myself so that the cords don’t re-attach….nuthin.
When I first started on “Forgiveness“, it was bright and oh so pretty, and I thought, well this just isn’t real. This isn’t how my heart chakra looks, this is how I want it to look, but I’m not there yet.
So I re-worked it, and it became dark, muddy and ugly and I thought, now this is more accurate, but it still wasn’t finished. I let it sit and simmer while I sat and simmered on a multitude of wounds that surfaced. I worked on these issues like a banshee! I created an energy art digital painting during this period called “The Violet Flame” to help me throw off some of that anger and resentment and burn it away once and for all.
This technique of using “The Violet Flame” has been the most successful technique I’ve used to date for unloading unwanted negative energy. Click on the link to see the image of “The Violet Flame“. It’s a beauty if I say so myself!
Anyway, after making some progress with healing the issues that arose as a result of working on my heart chakra, I tackled this painting again, and it flowed quickly and easily into the image above. What a process!! I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into when I started working on my chakras through this process.
“Forgiveness” is the fourth in my chakra series. Up next is the throat chakra and I’m procrastinating because my this one is seriously closed up! I’ve made some energy art digital paintings to start the process, and so far what’s been happening is non-communication. My energy art work has put a spotlight on my throat chakra, and non-communication is a good indication of a closed, tight, dark chakra.
