Welcome to this week’s Inspiration Mandala called “The Joy of Giving.”
And in the spirit of giving 🙂 I have included a link to this mandala colouring page further in the post.
Do not hesitate to share your gifts with the world –
they are much needed. Do not limit yourself as to what you think you can do, because there is always more room for your talents to soar.
Give. Give generously. Share.
Do not squander or hide away your talents from others. They are there for you to shine as you inspire others to do the same.
So give, and receive the gift of joy from giving.
Here is the link to download a FREE copy of this mandala colouring page.
As you colour it in, reflect on all of your gifts, strengths and talents, and how you can share and give something back to others. Pay it forward :-).

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.
