“SHINING ESSENCE” is the visualization of the process of freeing one’s Essence from the illusions of conditioning:
The metal represents the ‘amour of protections’, which safeguards our fears and insecurities. The white/gray impermeable texture symbolizes the conditioned patterns and responses that have been imprinted onto us by our social environment. Both are inauthentic expressions and influence the way we interact in our relationships. They skew our own self-image, and how we are perceived by others as well.
The deeply carved, gold-leafed crevice symbolizes the true ESSENCE of a person, which only becomes visible if we allow ourselves to dig deeper, looking beyond the first impression of a person.
When freed of any judgment, our ESSENCE begins to SHINE, and radiates as a congruent reflection of our uniqueness.
