Opening to Receive
The upward facing, open, receiving left hand is ancient in its texture, indicating its archetypal energies and vast realm of experience. The hand arises from a 16 petal lotus flower on the backdrop of the shrine, representing the energy of the 5th (throat) chakra; space & sound that resonates and creatively expresses the world into being. The spiraling energetic force field above the hand radiates with cosmic creative consciousness through its expanding field of energy. Little gems of wisdom spew off in all directions, some of which fly into the receiving hand; the star seed energy dangles above the palm, a symbol of source energy. When we are open to receive from atypical sources, the wisdom of new potentials can be absorbed and integrated within the human psyche and much more subtle levels of consciousness than emotions and thinking. Universal consciousness arises from the Cosmos within which we are embedded; we must only be open to receive.
