The Gifts Of The Fourth Chakra



Wild spirit - I cherished you tender within my halo of prana careful not to hurt you as I worked to set you free using peaceful hands in harmony with my heart-song I beheld your fragile form of freedom lost as your panicked eyes pleaded release.. and in those precious and few sacred moments - I felt you relinquish your fight or flight to my mission of mildness... a unifying lesson of love befell us that day and when again you flew on turquoise wings through reflective silver winds - you elevated in mindful mercy to compassionate heights in revered reverberations... gratified to be as one with the universe - reborn in your new found freedom ~ Susan Ashley October 7, 2018 _________________________ *For the purpose of this poem, I use the emotional elements of the fourth chakra. The fourth chakra refers to love and self-acceptance, the ability to give and receive love freely and feeling connected with the universe as a whole. Also referred to as the heart chakra, it is associated with the healing energy of love and is regarded as the center of compassion. A balanced heart chakra is considered to be a wellspring of inner happiness and peace.* *I use the color turquoise to represent a dynamic energy of self-love/acceptance/forgiveness, growth, humanism, inner peace and healing.* *I use the color silver to represent a cleansing element for one’s spirit, a mirror for the soul and a letting go of negative energy. Also, as a vehicle in seeking deeper truth and compassionate understanding to enhance one’s sense of altruism and to achieve a state of perfect balance and harmony in body, mind and spirit.*

A beautiful image: "halo of prana". This is such a great feeling: "gratified to be as one with the universe"; don't you agree? Great piece that I "Fav'd".

My dear friend, I do believe that being reborn (in the many different aspects of our being) is a continual process as one's being learns and grows in the ripple effect of loving and compassionate acts. I love your insightful comments, dear Paul, and your friendship continues to touch and inspire me. Warmest wishes and hugs always.. ~Susan

To embrace someone in such a way that you actually set them free is remarkable, Susan. This is the type of love that allows each partner to grow. And that feeling of "one with the universe" is something I found while fishing 25 miles offshore. Nothing else compares. (Thanks for explaining the chakra values at the end. This info enhances the reader's perspective.) Your poem is graceful, tender and enchanting! Hugs, Carolyn

Susan, I can relate to your poem so well. In my reiki work I balance the chakras which can actually be photographed with my aura camera. The heart chakra color is usually green which denotes growth, healing and love. Some think of it as pink. That beautiful turquoise color is the color of compassion and love for humanity. You have written a lovely poem that speaks to my heart. xxoo; )
