How to Meditate with Mandalas

Mandalas provide an anchor or a focused activity that brings you into a meditative state, calms the mind, and leaves you feeling rejuvenated, revived and refreshed.

 

Regular mandala gazing, drawing, or colouring helps to:

  • Reduce stress & anxiety
  • Boost sense of awareness
  • Increase feelings of balance, calm, strength, & harmony
  • Increase feelings of connectedness to ourselves, one another & our surroundings
  • Create a stronger mind-body connection — essential for promoting & maintaining health
  • Attain higher states of consciousness & connection to Source

Here are some ways that you can meditate with mandalas.

Displaying

You can print and display the mandalas on your wall or desk so that the resonance is being emitted into your environment. This will help to change the energy of the room and anyone in it to be in alignment with the mandala’s intention.

Colouring

Colouring mandalas is a great way to relieve stress, reduce anxiety, create feelings of peace and calm, all whilst repairing DNA, rejuvenating the body and revitalising the mind. There’s no right or wrong, just let your inner child play and apply the colours in any way you like.

Gazing

Keep your eyes focused on the central spot for 5-10 seconds, without blinking. Then close your eyes, allow the geometry to stimulate your pineal gland (third eye) and produce healing brain chemicals. Repeat this as many times as you like. This can be a weekly or daily practice.

Contemplating

You can meditate with the mandala by looking at it whilst contemplating what its specific intention means to you. What does that intention feel like, what would it look like if you had it in your life? For example, if the intention of the mandala is Abundance, what does abundance mean to you? What would your life be like if you had a lot of abundance? How would that make you feel? How would it impact those around you?

 

Mantra

Reciting an appropriate mantra whilst sitting with / gazing at the mandala is a good way to reinforce its intention, as they are both aligned. For example, if you are meditating with the Abundance mandala then you could recite the Lakshmi mantra.

Crystals

If you work with crystals then placing a transmitter/receiver crystal on top of it will help to amplify and transmit the resonance of the mandala’s intention.

A transmitter/receiver crystal is any crystal that has one face with 7 sides or edges opposite another face that has 3. An example is shown here.

Download this mandala for Freedom, Peace, and Love.

This mandala creates a doorway to the future potential of freedom, peace and love for the world.

By meditating with this mandala you help to create this future. You help to bring the potential of freedom, peace and love into your reality and those around you. It’s also charged with 72 hours of free Reiki healing for you.

 

This mandala that I have freehand drawn creates a doorway to the future potential of freedom, peace, and love for the world.

Before I started to draw this mandala I tuned into the energetic resonance and vision of the positive future of freedom, peace and love for the world. I then channelled the design and created the freehand drawing that you now see. My focus was on seeing justice and victory for all those who are finding the courage and strength to make a stand in the world today; for those who are fighting for choice, freedom, sovereignty and the divine right of true will. I focused on the world that so many of us want to live in, the joy that we want to experience, and the love that we want to feel.

Free Reiki Healing

This mandala is charged with Reiki healing that is available to you. All you need to do is set the intention to receive it. 

I have charged this mandala with what is known as an ‘Orb of Life’. These Orbs are hugely condensed balls of energy that sit in the astral. First, I command the orb into existence, then I channel 24 hours of the Reiki energy I have chosen into the ball (just like I would into a person). The Orb holds the Reiki energy until you are ready to receive it. All you have to do is set the intention for it to release and for you to receive, then it will flow to you for the next 24 hours. 

I am an 18th Degree Grand Master Reiki Healer and I work with the Yamabushi Shinto Reiki. You can find out more about what this is, here. You can find out how distance Reiki healing works, here

I have attached 3 orbs. When you are ready, set the intention to receive whichever one you like and the energy will flow. Each orb has one life span, meaning it can only be used once.

  • Dai Ji Yu – The Great Freedom – There are basically two sides to freedom; freedom from, and freedom to. You either want to be free from something that is somehow oppressive, or you want to be free to do something. The first big obstacle is fear. You are either afraid of something that could harm you, or you are afraid of losing something. Both these fears are lessened by this and the previous energy. This is a great energy to help release you from fear and help heal all forms of addiction or dependence.
  • Dai Hey Wa – The Great Peace – This brings complete inner peace through trust in God and when you finally see that everything is as it should be. This kanji can be used whenever someone is bored, or caught up in trying to control life. It should be used until the spiritual awakening happens and true peace is found.
  • Dai Ai -The Great Love – overcomes fear through the recognition of the great love of the creator, and opens up ways through our problems. If you allow your resonance to change, the amount of love you receive changes, and your entire range of possible futures changes. Allowing oneself to be changed by the Great Love of the Source is the power this kanji brings.

I wanted a mandala from Carrie because I was keen to explore alternative ways to help me with certain issues in my life. I liked the idea of having something that was special, made only for me, that was specific to my needs and gave me as much Reiki healing as I wanted.

The outcome was just beautiful, I’m amazed at what Carrie drew and how she even included shapes that I have doodled all my life, how did she know that? I’ve since sat with my mandala many times and asked for healing. I even took it into a special ceremony and other spiritual teachers commented on how powerful the mandala was in terms of it’s healing ability.

This is such a precious gift I can’t thank Carrie enough.

I have tattoos of mandalas because I think they’re beautiful but didn’t know much else about them so I was extra excited to attend Carrie’s wksp. She completely blew my mind. I had no idea that mandalas have the power they do. In addition to her knowledge about mandalas, Carrie shared with each of us our dominant chakras based on our date of birth along with the corresponding sacred geometric shape.

I have been on a journey of self-discovery & exploration and learning these things made me feel like I’d found a missing puzzle piece. Lastly, I chose to draw a mandala vs color as I was feeling a lot of resistance to it and it just made me so happy and I really think it’s helping me break through some creative blocks I’ve been experiencing. Carrie’s passion & enthusiasm filled the zoom room.

I can only imagine how an in-person wksp with her would be. Hope to be able to attend one someday!
