Welcome to this week’s Mandala Inspiration called“Breathe”.
This mandala is another inspired by the chakra energy series – the Solar Plexus Chakra in particular. This chakra is located around the navel and is associated with our physical and emotional centre. When in balance the solar plexus allows us to act with integrity and confidence. This chakra is said to energise us with a source of purpose, drive and motivation.
Welcome to this week’s Inspiration Mandalatitled “You are a Treasure”.
It’s a little different to my usual approach. This week I have two new mandalas to share!
They are both based on the same colouring page template that I created for the Christmas inspired mandala.The main difference is the colour palette. And it is amazing to see the different feelings that they evoke.
It’s in how we express ourselves, our ideas and how we do things. We use our creativity when we pick out what to wear in the morning, what we use our lunch break, how we talk with our colleagues or friends, and solve any issues that arise.
The problem is not that we don’t have creativity. It’s that we mightn’t be used to tapping into it, and if we do we mightn’t have the confidence to truly express ourselves or our ideas.
In early April 2015, I went on a Play Adventure where each day for 30 days I ‘coloured in’ a mandala colouring page (that I had previously created).
Here are all thirty designs that I created out of that one mandala colouring page. I even surprised myself by how many different and unique results I could create out of such a seemingly simple outline.
This Play Adventure was rewarding in so many ways. I introduced more play and fun into my day. I got to express myself creatively. I learnt more about the creative process and what worked for me. It also got me thinking about creative inspiration, taking risks and how ideas can flow. I learnt so much!
I captured my learning in the following blogs each week:
