Today I painted the pattern for the outer blue band of the inner square of Archangel #1 Mandala. I initially saw the pattern as an orb with a row of “parentheses” on either side of the orb. As I painted, it turned into a yin yang symbol with gold “commas”–upright and upside down.
This section reminds me of the duality of our existence here on Earth. And rather than painting white/black dots within the Yin Yang, gold went in their places, as if to represent the Divine connection within our dualist experience. Something to ponder, for sure.
This mandala is the focus for the Mandala of the Year as of July 1, 2017.

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
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?
