About The Mandala Lady

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?

August 2014: Charity

In looking up the definition of “Charity” in the online Oxford Dictionary, I found two of the four options rather interesting. Of course they had the two obvious ones:

Help or money given voluntarily to those in need
An organization set up to provide help and raise money for those in need

Both valid and both important in our society. However, options 3 and 4 touched my heart/soul deeply and I knew that these options are to be the focus of this month’s mandala of the month. Continue reading

June 2014: Curiosity

Curiosity may be deadly for cats but for us humans it’s a necessity…otherwise we remain stuck where we are.

On Merriam-Webster’s site, they define curiosity as:

the desire to learn or know
more about something or someone

When we stop being curious, we stop growing. When we stop growing, we start dying. That seems a bit harsh and yet it is the truth. Continue reading
