The challenge of creating something that doesn’t add more stress to one’s life! Having printed out an outline of a heart to fill with words or lines to complete this five day challenge, I reached a blank. I was also at a stage where I had to meditate on the Heart Chakra and create a photo collage for an assignment in my current studies.. A challenge, to say the least, until I re-read the question. The photos could be of places, pets or words that elicited a heart felt response.
When looking up what the opposite of a challenge could mean, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the following words came up….agree, decide, win, answer, acceptance, peace … fitting in beautifully with the essence of working with the Heart Chakra. I was further amused when I consulted a text on Chakras to find that the hexagon (yesterday’s challenge) is its symbol.
As a result, the time selecting the photos for the assignment meant spending some time delving through old files. In addition, reflecting on why I chose each photo and explaining the emotional attachment took longer than expected. Unsurprisingly, many of the photos are of places that I’ve experienced a deep sense of peacefulness and belonging. Included is Lucy the labrador – representing the unconditional love that dogs exhibit to us. Because of the synchronicity of tasks, I have decided to use the photo collage rather than lines or words.
