This piece is inspired by the healing of the root chakra. It is intended as a reminder that we survive and when all seems dark it is best to go within. There are times when life is a struggle but with a healthy attitude toward suffering, we forge ourselves through the fire. We have the knowledge that when ever something is taken from us, something is also given. There is a gift or a blessing that comes through making it up and out of the ashes. Like a phoenix we die and are born again, many times over in life. Accepting that death and being a participant in our own rescue is the way to life again. Different, stronger, wiser.
