Mandalas are all around us. One simply has to walk through a garden to find beautiful flowers in bloom and appreciate their circular, repetitive patterns. Increasing awareness of the many manifestations of mandalas in nature can begin by examining an atom. Each cell is a mandala. On a grander scale the universe with the rotation of the planets around the sun or the shape of the galaxies and other cosmic manifestations demonstrate mandalas as a fundamental form. Mandalas are present in almost all scientific studies from geology and biology to physics and chemistry. Becoming aware of their ever present nature allows individuals to find mandalas in previously unrecognized locations.
This is just one way that drawing mandalas has opened up insights into my personal process, and helped me find appreciation for where I am in each phase of my life’s journey. It’s a big part of why I dearly love drawing my own mandalas, rather than buying ones that others have made. It’s a precious gift, to receive insight into ourselves. Try it yourself, and let the mandalas introduce you to the hidden beauty and potential within you!
Few activities can involve as many different people as coloring. Everyone is equal at the coloring table, and sharing can be the natural result. Coloring is simple and fun, a great way for children to bond in a mutually satisfying activity. A wide variety of skill levels can be accommodated by the plethora of coloring books available on the market.
Mandala designs are easy to see in flowers. Petals surrounding a central core form the most natural designs. Imagine a sunflower, with its face full of sunflower seeds, surrounded by large, bright yellow petals. It’s a mandala guaranteed to make you smile. And something equally as cheerful - a daisy. Or perhaps a rose or a begonia for a mandala with overlapping petals.
I use mandala coloring as my primary active meditation technique. It’s the easiest way to learn how to meditate along with being inexpensive and fun. Coloring also allows you to open up your creative side and be expressive. Licensed art therapist use techniques like coloring to help patients with stress relief and to deal with anxiety issues.
It takes a lot of effort to do so, and we rarely get a chance to stop during the day and regenerate. When evening comes, our mind is filled with contradicting images, unsorted facts and a kaleidoscope of memories and ideas. Our entire nervous system is stimulated to distraction and even our bodies are charged with stress chemicals caused by runaway emotions and sensations. It is no wonder that we often end our day fatigued, stressed and unhappy. We get back home yearning peace, hoping to relax, but even the familiar surrounding isn’t enough to quiet our abused senses.
