This week’s MotD theme: Tis the Season for Ornaments

I present my coloring/painting of this week’s Mandala of the WeekTis the Season for Ornaments (from Sunday’s MotD post). Before painting this I had a couple of ideas for colors to use and yet when I painted it, only one remained, the background dark blue. All the other colors happened on the fly; it always seems to come out better that way. 🙂

I used iridescent watercolors on the wings and plaques; and regular watercolors on everything else. For the lettering, dots, and symbols I used gold, black, and white gel pens.

Inspiration for Today

In the end this turned into a Chakra Meditation Mandala. Each of the plaques hold the mantras for the 7 main chakras, while the center holds the symbol for Om.

Essentially this mandala asks us to seek Holy Balance in every aspect of our lives, now more than ever to help us stay above the fray.


  • Be
  • Feel
  • Will
  • Love
  • Speak
  • See
  • Know

from that Higher Place within ourselves while radiating it outward in all directions.

Since time and space are an illusion in this 3-dimensional human existence, we only need maintain this Holy Balance for mere moments at a time.

Know that EVERY little bit we can do matters greatly in our collective evolutionary process.

Happy Coloring!
