Through ages 22 & 28 feelings of harmony, love, and romantic relationships open up for bonding, affection, & intimacy. It’s more likely that you will form a deeper relationship with your own self-care, sensuality, & creativity.

When you can come to a place of balance & harmony inside your heart walls. It is the unconditional wavelength of the Divine. We learn how to combat lower vibration emotions like disappointment, pain, or disgust. Sensory processing involves deeper cognitive processing of emotional or social stimuli, affording us the opportunity to react with empathy & kindness.

Connecting helps you to understand, clear & reverse negative patterns.

Balancing allows us to release our emotional pain through unconditional love. As the heart center expands with love & compassion, our sapling of inner peace & harmony can open & grow.

When we are disconnected from ourselves, we have difficulty loving ourselves or giving love from a genuine place & then have trouble receiving love. You are out of touch with who you are & can develop depression from the lack of connection to the self.
