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.
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!
