Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

A favorite form of renewal for me is meditation. The quiet process of becoming self-aware. Often in my meditation practice I bring my awareness to the energy centers of the body. Most notably defined as the chakras. The 4th chakra featured in this challenge of renewal is known as the heart chakra Anahata. Green is the color of this chakra. At the center of any kind of renewal is the heart. When this chakra is in balance, we are open to love, renewal and expression. This work of art is part of The Silence Series: Chakra Colors For Meditation.

    • Thanks Terry. If you have not seen the other pieces in the series check out my chakra tag. I actually need to get back to it. I did not complete all seven chakras. Only did the first five.

    Nicely done. I love ephemeral art work. Is this computer generated? I don’t meditate enough. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Veronica for the inspiring comment. I appreciate it. The work is computer generated, however all my digital creations begin with a photograph. And you are not the only one who does not meditate enough. I certainly need to be a lot more consistent. But you know the process of creating art is quite meditative in of itself. I will stop by your blog and see what you are up to and subscribe. Please stop back by.
