A few days after this week’s Full Moon eclipse I created this earth art mandala at the shoreline where the west coast meets the Pacific ocean. In the center rests a stone egg in a kelp nest with crab legs giving the illusion of a spinning wheel.
Created with sea kelp, crab shells and legs,
stones, and markings in the sand.
The heart chakra is the one chakra we all “get” as it is where we locate our feelings and emotions. When our heart chakra is unblocked and open, we can give and receive unconditional love with ease.
This morning as I walked home from a coffee date with a friend who was visiting from out of town, I was thinking about how good it feels to have open-hearted talks. There is nothing quite like feeling resonance as you share your heart truths.
As I passed through a neighborhood park, I stopped to sit on the grass for a while and made this improv earth art piece out of the grass flowers (weeds?) for my heart chakra.
What I love about earth art is that is completely intuitive, and a lesson in being present, in that you arrange and craft beauty with what nature presents to you. It is a fleeting form of art – a breeze or a curious dog’s nose will erase my flower heart by the end of the day.
But for now, the simplicity of my earth heart remains.
