Mandalas have been in use since the Neolithic era which started as drawings on caves depicting the sun and moon which were powerful symbols of life for early man. Since then the mandalas have evolved into more complex pictorials as a representation and to gain access into various levels of spiritual dimensions and knowledge.
They have been a human representation of spiritual understanding, energy and power and our connectivity to the universe as a whole. As mandalas are a physical representation of energy, they are powerful tools for manifesting our intentions. The pictorials on each mandala locks in the energy of our intentions into a solidified physcial form which is the first layer of its physical manifestation.
The image of the mandala ignotes the energy within your body when you see or interact with it. This leads to the intended energy or wish building up and having a stronger and stronger resonance within your etheric and emotional bodies. This leads to transformation in your life.
There are no fixed rules for creating mandalas and you can create them as to how you are divinely inspired.
They can be used for:
1) Manifesting energies you need in your life. For example : happiness, abundance, new life path, new love.
2) Representation of an angelic energy or symbols of widsom they may wish to impart to you.
3) For healing specific aliments or emotional conditions.
4) Creating good energy in a space or home.
5) Connecting to other parallel dimensions like a portal.
We will formulate unique and specific mandalas for each person in the class. The workshop starts with an opening meditation to allow you to connect with your higher self, angels and guides and to source creation energy.
We will then discuss the images you saw during your meditation as a group and what they meant for you. I will then with my angels and guides help seek understanding of these images which you saw and also come to a deeper understanding of your individual needs and discuss them either in the group or 1-1 as the day progresses.
We will then proceed to draw or trace these images onto water colour paper or any other medium you wish to create your mandala with. We can research images online as well to inspire the exact aesthetic you wish to achieve.
The mandalas will be blessed and energised by each individual at the end of the day to ensure it works properly before the closing meditation. We will also do a small ceremony / meditation to align you with the energies of each individual mandala with the help of the other participants.
