Unlock the Healing Power of the Mandala – Evolve.
A Mandala represents wholeness, a cosmic diagram reminding us of our relation to infinity, extending beyond and within our bodies and minds.
The word Mandala means “circle”. The mandala appears to us in many forms if we just care to look around – the Earth, the Sun, the Moon are examples of what we physically see. Also we cannot forget the more obvious circles of life encompassing friends, family and communities!
What do Mandalas signify?
Mandalas are circular designs symbolizing the notion that life is never ending. According to the ancient science of Sacred Geometry, it is the pattern created by interlocking spheres that forms the matrix of all universal matter.
Mandalas are used for meditation purposes allowing the individual meditating to become one with the universe. There are not many who are able to achieve this state of mind from just studying a mandala. The symbolism behind the creation of a mandala can have significant meaning for many individuals whether they are Jewish, Buddhist, Christian, Pagan or of any other religious orientation. In both eastern and western cultures, the mandala has come to symbolize harmony, unity, wholeness, and healing.
Why to use a Mandala Coloring App?
There are many uses for a mandala. The design of the mandala is supposed to be visually appealing so as to absorb the mind in such a way that irritating thoughts are unable to get through and a spiritual essence surrounds the individual observing the mandala, which in turn allows the individual a higher consciousness or awareness, almost as though in meditation. This allows the busy mind to take a break while the creative mind is allowed to run free.
The mandala is primarily used as a form of meditation to gain knowledge from within.
Select a mandala that appeals to you. Set your own meaning before using it for color-meditation. For example – I want to enhance my love life or I want to improve my relationships.
Here are the steps to submerge in deep creative & joyful meditation:
Once the intention or desire has been set, you can begin focusing on the mandala.
Allow yourself to take in the lovely designs, allow your mind to wander.
Just like watching a candle flame in candle therapy, if your mind starts to think about the usual mundane things, simply bring your focus and attention back to the beauty of your selected mandala.
Let the mandala absorb all your attention, try to swim in its patterns and start filling the patterns with colors.
As you begin to fall into the mandala, you will experience a feeling of lightness and intuitive thoughts may arise.
Relax, let thoughts and feelings come to you. Float with it. If you begin to feel panic, feel lost, uncomfortable or if you start thinking about those “mundane” things again, just relax and refocus your attention back to the mandala.
Everyone experiences different feelings. But if you have a relaxed demeanour whilst focused on the mandala you have obviously achieved what was intended.
Share your colorful meditative mandala with friends and family. Share happiness.
