Mandala Inspiration – ‘Grounded’ for the Root Chakra

Welcome to this week’s Inspiration Mandala called “Grounded”.

This week’s Inspiration Mandala is inspired by the Chakra energy system, in particular the Root Chakra. This Chakra is located at the base of the spine. It is associated with safety, security and being grounded.

Ground yourself. Connect with your body,
in the life that you have chosen and been given.
Accept your blessings. revel in the abundance.
Know that all you ask for is already there,
waiting for you to ask and
be willing to receive without reservation.
Be at peace that all will be provided,
all will be well and that everything is as it should be.
All that is now necessary is for you to
move forward from this place of knowing and
trust that you have the ability to create where you want to be.

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.

  1. Love the layers, your choice of colours, the complex patterns seem to contain an energy and have a depth to them. Earthy…grounded and moving forward, beautiful concept.

  2. Thanks Jane. I never know where my mandalas will take me, and I’m not always sure that they will convey my intent. Greatly appreciate you posting your comment here :-).
