By day 12 I completed the penning & inking of this version of the Authentic Self Mandala. When coloring, I average about 45 minutes at a time for each of the 12 days.
People have asked if I find the coloring of mandalas tedious…for me I find them meditative. By doing a section at a time, the coloring of mandalas becomes more about the process than the completion. I love to watch it grow from being a flat outline to becoming a 3-dimensional looking form…as if coming out of a fog or a dream.
So here’s the progress from the final 3 days:
You can find this mandala to color in my “Floral Mandala Coloring Book” on Etsy.

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?
