Today I finished coloring Section 1 of the 2012 Mandala of the Year…and with 5 days to spare!
While coloring I did my best to pay attention to the tightness throughout my body…in particular my stomach and shoulder areas. Every time I checked in, sure enough, I noticed my tightened stomach and hunched shoulders.
With each check in, I quickly relaxed those areas. While it still bugs me that I tense up, I seem to catch it sooner each time. Progress!
Here’s the slideshow of the final final touches to this section…

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
