Welcome to another Inspiration Mandala, which is titled “Creating Flow”.
This week’s Inspiration Mandala continues on a previous theme of the Chakra energy system. This mandala relates to the Sacral Chakra. This Chakra is located below the naval around our reproductive area. It is associated with creativity, pleasure, sexuality, energy, and movement.
Trust in your body, your self. Your natural state is of one in flow.
Over time we may put in blockages and stops into its path.
But this is okay. Like a river, your natural flow and creativity will divert and find another way to move forward. So trust,
that no matter what life throws at you, you always have
the ability to move forward, to heal, create, and remain in flow.
Curious about mandalas?
Mandalas are an ancient and sacred art form that involve creating patterns and shapes within a circle.
Mandalas have been around for centuries. They have been used in various cultures and traditions (ranging from Tibetan Buddhist sand mandalas, Native American medicine wheels, and rose stained glass windows in Gothic cathedrals). Mandalas have also been used by psychiatrist Carl Jung with his patients after he discovered that drawing within a circle could be used as a tool for self-expression.
There is power when you create a mandala with an underlying intention.
The act of sitting down and drawing a mandala also creates an opportunity to be still and totally absorbed in the task at hand. Drawing a mandala can be relaxing and form part of mindfulness practice. Its calming effect can ground and centre us. It can also provide us with a tool for self-expression and reflection.
Mandalas can also be used as part of a meditation practice.
You use the mandala to settle your mind and provide a focus point for your eyes to rest on during your mediation. Whenever your mind gets distracted then bring back your focus to the mandala. For more information on how to mediate on a mandala.
