The eye for me represents clairvoyancy (intuition, hightened senses, premonition). I am a very intuitive person with vivid dreams and the ability to see things unknown to the naked eye. The three flowers represent my connectedness with the number 3 and a reminder to always remain as open as a flower. To always stay connected to my inner.
