It is always very interesting to me after I finish to draw and color a new mandala, to realize what were the influences which unconsciously have guided me through it.
When I started to draw there wasn’t anything in mind, no preplanned ideas and everything came out so easily. The pencil slowly creating lines as if on its own, listening to a subtle sound of silence.
I just felt like an observer.
When slowly the lines became clearer, a sense of family, protection, and peace arose. Each globe containing two older beings looking over the young ones but at the same time connected with the others in a circle of protection and safety, creating peace and serenity. The forms of each being are slightly leaning towards each other in a gesture of compassion, as if saying ” I hear you, I understand you, I am here.”
The colors chosen were jade green and blue. When I looked at their significance, I discovered that Green represents the Heart Chakra, and when open, it inspires to love more, feel empathy and have compassion. The Jade as well brings harmony, balance, and prosperity.
After I understood the feelings and meaning associated with this Mandala, I remembered that the day before was World Peace Day and while reading many beautiful Inspiring Stories, one particular Video touched deeply my heart, which explained that implementing Compassion games: Survival of the Kindness in prison centres and schools, has resulted in much lower violence. You can watch the video and learn more from their facebook page Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest.
This Mandala is directed to our Heart center, to open it wider and bring more Love and Compassion to our personal world. I would love to know what does it inspire you?
These are some of the products I applied the design to at my Zazzle Shop.
