The process of self-realization is one of healing: integrating and bringing into alignment many aspects of the self. A central theme for many is learning to balance masculine and feminine energies within oneself. When a person is able to do this successfully, they are then able to step into their full power as a creative being, and manifest anything they can imagine - whether in the context of a creative work, or physically in "real life."
This painting is full of symbolism and archetypes related to the creative process and to healing and balancing the creative energies within. One of these includes the Hindu god Shiva, who is regarded both as the god of destruction, and as a great power of creation and regeneration. It's an acknowledgement that in order to bring in the new, it is necessary to release the old.
Another symbol appearing here is the Caduceus, the serpent-laden staff that symbolizes healing and the awakening of Kundalini energy. And the fish is a powerful symbol of fertility as well as being immersed in water, symbolic of the intuition.
Use this image to support creative change of any kind (such as spiritual awakening, a career change, or staring a new creative project), to help release old patterns of thought and behavior and open to intuitive guidance to create something new and wonderful.
