I’m on day 2 of the “stress” mandala and it’s looking more complex. I feel like I’m filling sections of an abstract brain.
My progress today:
1 – add darker red to five sections
2 – paint in teal sections
3 – brighter red sections
4 – add golden brown sections
While painting some more on the “Stress” mandala, I happened to be listening to an online marketing/branding class. Everything being presented seemed valid and detailed however, the more I listened the more stressed I became because all I could think about is “I really need to do this but how can I get it all done!”
And then I remembered yesterday’s “Stress is Optional” class and did Cynthia’s 5-5-5 tool 3 times: inhale for 5, hold for 5, exhale for 5. Now with a clearer head and calmer body, I remembered this advice “take what works and leave the rest.” Sounds like a great plan.
About the Mandalas of the Day:
I post a variety of in-progress art for that day which can include mandalas from the Mandala of the Week, the Mandala of the Month, the Mandala of the Year, or the Mandala Meditation Stones.

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?
