We have a heart to pump blood and deliver oxygen and nutrition to every part of our body.
It is absolutely critical to life.
The heart's function is to deliver the *energy* of blood to our entire organism.
But your heart needs flexibility in order to do function effectively. The heart's strength is flexibility.
If your heart is boxed in, walled up, protected… it’s not flexible at all. It’s brittle. It can’t work. It will eventually self-strangulate.
It absolutely *needs* to have it’s walls broken down, removed, in order to maintain it’s strength.
This is exactly what happens with our heart physically. Our blood vessels become coated with plaques… but these plaques, instead of strengthening our vessels, strangulate them. The more coated, the thicker the walls, the more risk of heart attack.
The heart is pure muscle… power, strength, truth and love… and it uses it’s core strength, which is the strength of flexibility, to deliver it’s heartsong… life, joy, and freedom… to the entire body.
This is the power of the heart, when it is full of love, lubricated by life, flexible, bending and free.
If your heart is feeling brittle, limited, stiff, hardened, or empty, nurture your own heart first.
Begin with flexibility. Allow your thoughts to expand, give yourself the flexibility to allow multiple points of view, the vulnerability to be hurt, and the strength to bounce back even stronger.
Give yourself a little love. A little softness. A little forgiveness. A little flexibility.
Flexibility is what makes your heart strong. Flexibility is what feeds your entire body. Flexibility is what makes *you* strong.
I created this artwork to remind my patients to remain flexible as a way to nurture their heart. I used a diagram from my medical school anatomy book... and I combined it with one of my favorite quotes of all time. I also used vintage 1920's sheet music in the background.
You can see the heart, caged behind barriers of barbed wire, fencing, brick, wood.
The music of life, that surrounds our hearts. It’s not gone… it’s still playing… it’s just muffled by the walls we build.
“Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers
within yourself that you have built against it.”
This heart collage uses an anatomy
text, vintage sheet music, acrylic inks, vinyl lettering and paint on a
11 x 14 inch
wood panel, sealed with archival quality varnish. This collage comes
framed in an eco-friendly 80% recycled material composite black frame,
signed by the artist.
To your heart health!
